Michaela & Jessie’s Ottumwa Engagement Session

For some reason this beautiful engagement session never got scheduled to publish!  And it’s a good one!   This was photographed by our associate photographer, Alley down in Ottamwa earlier this spring.  Jessie & Michaela have supermodel good looks, so of COURSE their engagement photos are stunning!

In love with this long flow maxi dress and that color on Michaela!

Quick funny story – Alley and I didn’t talk about locations before this shoot, but when I received these images and began editing, I saw this bridge and thought to myself, “That looks REALLY familiar!”   Turns out this is the exact same bridge at Indian Hills Community College where I photographed Tara & Ethan’s snowy engagement shoot just a few weeks prior!  I guess we both have good taste!

My favorite!

Whenever you can get a genuine laugh from the groom, you know it’s a good photoshoot.  Well done, Alley!

Their wedding is almost here – just a few more weeks!
