When Natalie contacted me about photographing her May wedding, I was over the moon! We met up over coffee, and instantly connected. Alex and Natalie share a love based on faith, and are both finishing up their training to be teachers--so, you know they love others well, too! Finally, October rolled around, and we had a wonderful evening shooting their engagement photos in Des Moines. Alex shared some great anecdotes that made both Natalie and myself giggle, and honestly?! These two played and laughed their way through our session...what a dream for me! Not to mention, all the fall leaves and colors we were able to discover. :) 

Natalie and Alex, I have loved getting to know you both and I cannot wait for your wedding!!! Enjoy some of my favorite photos!
