Krissy + Jalan | Flipping Pancakes, Blowing Bubbles, Wandering Through The Gardens | Portrait Photographer

Krissy seeked me out to capture her engagement session because she wanted a more moody, lifestyle approach to her photos. She really wanted me to capture them doing the things they love to do like, cooking together ( aka flipping pancakes competition) and taking bubble baths ( who doesn’t like poppin some Rose in the AM with their hunny?). They really wanted to finish their session at the botanical gardens because they will soon be getting married amongst all those tropical plants in Hawaii. Talk about jealous!! If you haven’t been to the Des Moines Botanical Gardens lately - it’s a must! Everything is all grown up so beautifully.

These two share a beautiful, playful, easy kind of love and I really enjoyed capturing all these moments for them. I love it when my couples really hone in on what they like to do together - this way I can capture them being themselves a lot easier!

If you are looking for that sort of shoot that’s easy going - me capturing you both hanging out and doing whatever it is you like to do - you know where to find me!

Here are just a few of my favorite images.
