Morgan & Colter | Fort Madison, IA

Happy Friday, friends! We are so excited to be sharing Morgan & Colter’s engagement session with you. I’m not kidding you they are the SWEETEST couple! Anyone would be lucky to know this joyful, fun and caring young couple. We seriously had the best time hanging out with them on Colter’s family’s farm a few weeks ago for their engagement session. When Morgan first reached out to us about doing their engagement session there she talked all about how special it was to them and just how great of spot it would be. And we of course were all in because we love unique and totally understand a couple’s desire to have their session in a special location! And Morgan was so right, it was an awesome location! For starters there is a walnut tree farm on their property so there are rows of perfectly lined trees making the most beautiful backdrop for their photos. I mean the tunnel of trees over the driveway, AHH! GORGEOUS! Don’t mind the fact that it started thundering right when we started shooting their session and it was raining by the end, we still got so many great shots! And they of course were completely laid back about the possibility of rain. We just kept shooting until the rain made us stop, we even took a few on the porch while it was raining! I’m telling you we used every minute we could until it was practically downpouring! (Side note this rain shower was totally unexpected, I feel like I’ve been saying that alot lately! I promise I do check the weather before our sessions, ha!) No matter the weather, we still had a fabulous time with these two and their sweet parents. They both come from such genuine and caring families and we can’t wait to be part of their wedding day next year! We hope you enjoy a peek into their beautiful session!
