Summer Iowa Lake MacBride Engagement

July 28, 2020

Hey there, friends! I have another gorgeous engagement session to share with you! I met up with Amanda and Cooper for their Lake MacBride engagement session and it is absolutely breathtaking! (you’re going to want to keep scrolling to see what I mean!)

Amanda and Cooper met in undergrad during their last few years of college. Since then they’ve been finishing up school and starting careers. Right before the craziness of the global pandemic really took hold, Cooper had much more exciting things planned! One night, he convinced Amanda to go with him to pick his mom up from work. “We went in to find her and she told us she had to finish a few things and that we should check out the new break room.” said Amanda. After what felt like a million steps to the top of the building, they came to a room decorated with candles and stringed lights. With a view overlooking the river, Cooper asked Amanda to be his wife! She was so surprised and utterly speechless!

We planned their Lake MacBride engagement session for exactly one year and one day before their wedding day! They took every ounce of style advice I have to offer and walked up to their engagement session look absolutely perfect! Amanda was fresh from a hair and makeup appointment wearing the most red-carpet-worthy red dress! We traveled to two very important locations for their session, the first being Lake MacBride. They love going to this spot together to enjoy a walk and the beautiful view! We climbed up rocks and over a slippery creek bed to get some amazing shots! I’d wade through water every day for them! I can’t believe I didn’t know about this gorgeous spot until now! It truly is breathtaking!

The second spot for their engagement session was Little Lights on the Lane where they’ll say “I do” next year! With the sun sinking down low on the horizon, we got some of the most dreamy sunset glow! Amanda and I couldn’t help but gush about how we love everything about Little Lights and secretly wish our homes looked just as cozy!

Amanda and Cooper, it so surreal that we finally got to meet in real life! I had the best evening adventuring with you two! I’m praying for a duplicate of this night next July! I can’t wait for another round in the golden evening light with you two!
