I meet Ashley & Michael earlier this summer. They are such a wonderful couple! Ashley wanted to take photos on Michael’s family’s farm. A special place for them where they spend many nights around a bonfire & making memories. We walked through fields of prairie land and sat upon a tall hill, looking out as the sun set behind us. As a Des Moines photographer, my favorite things to capture are hands. When you follow the hands, they tend to tell part of the story. You can always find love, strength and tenderness there. My other favorite are those little candid moments of laughter. Congrats to you both! I can not wait to be a part of your special day next year.
