Megan & Mitch [Iowa City, IA Engagement]

Josh and I met up with Megan and Mitch for their engagement photos this past Saturday, and although it was a perfect day for outdoor photos in the winter (not too cold, no wind, sunny day), we were missing the one thing they really wanted = snow. Megan even brought a sled to use in the photos, but sadly we had such a pathetic amount of the white stuff that we weren't able to use it at all. Regardless, I think we got some beautiful photos of this incredibly fun couple.

Megan and Mitch have known each other since elementary school, and they both went to college at Iowa State, so they've been in each other's lives for a long time. You can tell these two have a long history, as they seem not only very much in love, but also best friends. It was such a fun session with them joking around and laughing, I really love seeing such a great connection between two people who are about to start their lives together as husband and wife.

These two got engaged in September 2011, and Mitch played a bit of a prank on her at first - handing her a ring box with a folded up picture of a t-shirt he had bought her. Secretly Megan was thinking "please don't let him propose this way" when he just handed her a ring box, but awhile later (after Mitch had a good laugh) the real proposal happened. They had been out on the land they hope to build a house on someday when Mitch asked Megan what she thought of when she looked around the properly. She answered him by saying she could envision their house someday, and he agreed, getting down on one knee and asking her to marry him. As it turns out, Mitch is quite the romantic, he had her parents, his parents, and Megan's best friend (now maid of honor) hiding nearby and they all came out to congratulate the newly engaged couple.

Now, onto the photos - I hope you guys like the sneak preview. It was so much fun getting to know you during the session and we can't wait for your wedding in September!
