Downtown Des Moines Fall Engagement Session | Jerad & Sydney

Outdoor Nature Vibes + A Little Bit of City

It was a chilly autumn November day in Des Moines for Jerad & Sydney’s engagement session. Luckily it wasn’t as cold as it had been the days leading up to it. Jerad and Sydney were traveling from Cedar Falls so I was really hoping for the best case scenario as far as the weather goes. We met up at Waterworks Park in Des Moines to get some photos in nature. Then we switched gears and headed downtown where we had some more photo fun and Sydney and Jerad popped champagne! Fun fact, we may have got kicked off the top of a parking garage (yikes! lol). Right as we were about to get the champagne out the parking garage worker came and popped our bubble and told us we had to leave! We reluctantly left and finished our session elsewhere. It’s all good though, I ended up talking to a police officer later that day and I know my facts now 😉
I highly recommend downtown Des Moines in the fall for engagement sessions! There are so many different places and vibes you can give your couples & their photos. You can be out in nature yet have an urban feel within minutes. I definitely recommend our beloved city if that is the feel you are going for!
It was a total treat for me hanging with these two 🙂 I always love getting to hang with my couples before their wedding day. It never fails that I leave my session even more excited for the wedding than I already was!
