Des Moines Engagement Session |  Waterworks Park  |  Spring Blooms

Oh man, am I in love with Kelsey & Jake’s engagement session!!!  This is my absolute favorite time of year (BLOOMS!) and Waterworks Park in Des Moines is my all time favorite place to photograph with the blooms!

Kelsey contacted me a month or two ago about scheduling their engagement session.  She knew that she wanted something full of nature and she knew that she wanted something floral in their photos!  Initially we were thinking about going to an Arboreatum but I brought up the idea of documenting their session during bloom week and Kelsey loved the idea!

It was such a fun time getting to know Kelsey and Jake during the time that we spent together!  They are both a little bit shy and soft spoken but not without laughter and joy!  It is so easy to tell that these two are head over heels in love with one another.

We walked around the park and chatting about their adorable English Bull Dog at home (who is going to be the ring bearer at their wedding!!!), how they first met (holla for the Tinder Marriages!),  and about their upcoming nuptials that they were planning.  I love the fact that they turned their session into a date night and got a hotel room for the evening complete with local takeout (since the Rona makes it quite impossible to do anything else).  We always recommend turning your engagement session into a date night since you’re already all gussied up, but turning it into a weekend away makes it even more special!

What a wonderful time that we had, and how gorgeous did these turn out?!  Enjoy a small sneak peak of Kelsey & Jakes engagement session!
