Erika & David | Crapo Park, Burlington IA

Erika found us by way of one of our former brides, which by the way is the highest compliment we could ever ask! (thanks, Morgan!) We just love it when our new clients come our way from our old clients and then we can all be friends! Erika & David chose to have their engagement session in Burlington as that is where David grew up and they picked one of our favorite locations, Crapo Park. We got some great photos with the perfect light coming through the trees and of course the beautiful river front, but you wanna know what is even better? They introduced us to a waterfall at Crapo Park that we didn’t even know existed! It was so fun to explore new areas of the park, even if it took a little adventuring to get there 😉 Erika however is from Oregan and so when she thinks of home she thinks of pine cones and Evergreens so of course we also had to get a few with the evergreen trees! It was the perfect representation of both Erika & David. We can’t wait for their December wedding, and hopefully a beautiful dusting of snow on all the evergreen trees. But until then, here are a few of our favorite summer photos from their engagement session. Enjoy!
