Let me introduce you to Quincy and Amanda. I was beyond excited when they contacted me to photograph their wedding this October at the RiverCenter in Davenport, Iowa. Amanda is a country girl so we are like two peas in a pod! Their wedding is going to be very classy with a mix of all the wonderful rustic/country finishes. It will be perfect!
As part of their wedding package, they received a complimentary engagement session. This was an engagement session for the books! We laughed and had so much fun! Both Amanda and Quincy are very relaxed, go with the flow, kind of people so they were a delight to work with. And since Amanda and Quincy wanted to have a few horses from her family farm to be in some of the pictures as well, we had an entire team of their family and friends to help coordinate everything. It was really very cool to see everyone come together to make these pictures incredible for this wonderful couple!
The one thing we didn’t have on our side was the weather that day! It would rain just enough to get everything wet so we had to get into the car and wait a few minutes, then jump back out and try to snap a few images just before it would start to rain once again. The sun kept teasing us by coming out for only a few minutes just to go back under again. The rain was slightly difficult to work with, but with this amazing couple, it was no big deal. We just chatted in the downtime and made the most of it and had a great time.
I must say, you can hardly tell it rained during this session. The horses did get a bit wet, Quincy and Amanda had to sit in wet grass, but all in all, the storm clouds did make for some beautiful colors that evening. It all turned out to be really wonderful!
Please enjoy some of my favorites from their engagement session. I’m looking so forward to October being here and the opportunity to capture their absolutely perfect and stunning wedding day!
