First it must be said - Lindsey and Brandon are ADORABLE. Seriously, have you ever seen a cuter couple?
I must share the one thing that made me sad about this session - I won't be photographing their wedding this coming June!! I had so much fun at this session, and I wish Lindsey and Brandon the absolute best now and in the future. I know their wedding will be gorgeous!
If you'd like to see even more photos - check out their slideshow HERE.
We started the session at their home, so their pup Scout could join in for a few photos.

Next we made our way downtown and found a ton of great spots!

Judith is a dear friend of mine, and has been since we met about 8 years ago. She is a speech pathologist that I know because of Dan, whom I've been working with for so long he's more like my brother than anything else. Judith is an important part of my life, so when she asked me to take some photos of her and her friends that were visiting from Japan, I jumped at the chance.
Judith has known Kimiko and Akimi since the early 1970's when they lived in Iowa City while their spouses worked at the University and they've remained friends over the years despite the miles between them. It was a pleasure to meet Judith's friends when we got together for a quick afternoon session, and I hope they had a very safe flight back to Japan!
Akimi is on the left, Judith is in the middle, and Kimiko is on the right. I just love the way the sun is peeking through the gorgeous fall leaves!

I met Laina, Matt, and their (almost 3 year old) son Jack at the Pentacrest this past Sunday afternoon where we were able to get some family photos as well as a few individual of Jack. I didn't have much of a chance to chat with Laina and Matt to find out more about them, as Jack (who has a fantastic smile, an infectious laugh, and a big personality!) kept us all on our toes for the majority of the session!
Laina and Matt - it was great meeting you and I hope you like this sneak peek!

One thing I love about photography is meeting all kinds of cool and interesting people. Cassi is a theater major at the University of Iowa and contacted me about taking some headshots as she will be graduating this spring. I had such a great time photographing her early on Sunday morning and hearing about her future ambitions (she'd love to live in NYC and do theater someday) and her plans after graduation (applying for the Disney program or heading to the Twin Cities to do theater).

Their first look was so sweet, I love the way Richard is smiling at Chelsea in this photo (taken by Josh).
The flowers (which were done by Hy-Vee) were so pretty! I loved the fall colors.
Richard's favorite color is orange, and he loved showing off his bright socks!
Chelsea's flower girl was her niece, and honestly I don't think she could be any cuter! Just look at that sweet face.
I love this moment between sisters as Chelsea waits downstairs for the ceremony to begin.
The church was so beautiful, I love all of the art on the walls at the front.
