As a Quad Cities photographer, I love to a photograph engagement sessions at rural locations because I feel you can really photograph the love and connection between the two vs focusing on the landscapes around them. Rural locations with gorgeous sunsets evokes the most beautiful emotion, and these two are amazing in front of the camera and with each other!
When I first chatted with Stacey, I just knew that she and Riley would be so incredible to work with! Her wedding and style was so in sync with all the things I absolutely love and cherish about photographing engagement sessions and weddings. It’s hard to believe their day has finally arrived, and I’m so ecstatic to see how everything has come together!
This couple will be getting married and having their reception at Calkin’s Barn in Wyoming, IA, and I couldn’t be more ecstatic to document their gorgeous day! They have selected to do their first look at a property that Riley hunts at, and then they are doing bridal portraits at Stacey’s grandparent’s farm. It’s so special when you have locations like this that are important to you to tie into your wedding day to treasure for years to come.
Today is going to be so amazing, and we’re certainly not going to let mother nature get in the way! They say it’s good luck if it rains on your wedding day, so cheers to many years of happiness I say! Rain or shine, these two will be the most gorgeous couple as their love for each other will definitely be shining bright!
Please take a look below through some of my favorites from their engagement session.
