this weekend in pictures : oct 8 + 9

another AMAZING weekend to be a photographer! it was gorgeous out!

i've got so much going on but wanted to show you all a quick preview of all that's been going on in lwp-land! first, was the lovely sami & adam's wedding in Mount Ayr, Iowa, a little over an hour south of Des Moines (you remember THEM, right?!). It was at a perfect venue: the bride's family lake house! it was absolutely stunning outside! and it didn't hurt that the bride & groom were equally as stunning! i skipped straight to the end of their ceremony with this post because i was super pumped to show you what happened after...the boat ride!! congratulations to you both! i can't wait to get the rest of these up! simply perfect!

...the next morning i began my day with an awesome family shoot in Adel! I was so happy to shoot the H family - complete with their horses! it's simply beautiful out there! thanks so much you guys!

afterwards, i headed back to DSM to shoot my favorite little god-daughter, jocelyn! technically this was "her" 2-year old shoot - but of course we had to take some family pictures; complete with their newest addition, luke! jocelyn is stinkin' adorable and absolutely beautiful! it's always such an honor to shoot this amazing family!  

after that, i was joined by the lovely sarah & luke for their engagement session. i am thrilled beyond measure to photograph their wedding coming up this May. There were amazing to work with! Obviously...they're so adorable together; so obviously in love! we had so much fun! this shoot was an all time favorite! thanks for being awesome, guys :) i cannot wait for the big day! you're perfect together! 

lastly - but certainly not least - was an impromptu photo shoot for my brother charlie who just proposed to his lovely girlfriend, Meg earlier this week! he surprised her by flying all the way down to texas where she lives and popped the question as soon as he saw her! love it! their wedding is set for june - another wadle wedding! CANT WAIT! congrats you guys!
