I believe that an engagement session should be about who YOU are as a couple and so I love doing sessions at places that are meaningful. Nick and Meggie met during college at the University of Iowa, so it was very fitting for us to do the session at various places around campus. I hadn’t been to the U of I campus before so it was fun for me to get a personal tour, find out about the couple’s life when they were on campus, and create some awesome images for the two of them.
The campus had so many great places to photograph I love finding nooks and crannies that are full of character to photograph in, like the back alley way. Now don’t get me wrong, it was a little gross in the alley, but hey, sometimes you just have to take one for the team in the name of awesome photography! I also really LOVE the super contemporary backdrop that the Iowa Advanced Technology Labs building provided. And I must say, Nick and Meggie were troopers for going along with my idea since it wasn’t exactly the coolest day and sun beating down on the metallic surface didn’t really help the situation at all. But I think the end result was worth it! Couples that are up for anything really make my day – here’s hoping that their wedding day is just as fun as the engagement session!
