Nicole + Jake’s Iowa City Fossil Gorge Engagement

August 16, 2021

I love capturing engagement sessions for my couples before their wedding day! Nicole and Jake’s Iowa City Fossil Gorge engagement session was a perfect example. They told me many times that they only know one picture “pose.” Well, we proved quickly that they are photo naturals! We enjoyed time doing everything from snuggling their fluffy pups to jogging barefoot to experimenting with the best way to pop champagne. The little extra details made their session completely their own!

Nicole and Jake, you two are what made your engagement session so fun! You brought your full personalities, which is where the beauty in these photos came from! Thanks for the laughs and for going with my crazy ideas. I can’t wait for your wedding day next year!
