Lauren emailed me a few months ago about photographing her wedding (at a local winery just outside Ames!) and I jumped at the chance! I've actually photographed there--but nothing was green yet. :) I'm anxiously awaiting this coming September!!!

Anyhow... we talked on the phone, chatted more over text message, and I finally got to meet her and Justin, her fiancĂ©. We met halfway in Story City to capture some "spring" engagement photos. Although not as green as April has been in the past, it still made a gorgeous backdrop for their photos! I know they both were nervous about being awkward. But for real!? Take a look! No visible awkwardness. At! All! Lauren & Justin, enjoy the months leading up to your wedding! I can't wait! See you at Prairie Moon Winery! ;)
