Alex asked Bailey to marry him as they were visiting Chateau St. Jean on a recent trip to California and they love to spend evenings on the patio at Magnolia Wine Kitchen– so it only made sense to begin their engagement session at one of their favorites spots around Des Moines. Magnolia was kind enough to let us take over their patio space for some photos of this sweet couple.
We stopped by a green space downtown before ending at Water Works Park. These two are so natural in front of the camera, especially considering it was during the last heat wave before the fall temperatures arrived. They rocked their sweaters in 90 degree heat like champs!
