Marcos & Sarah :: Ankeny Iowa Engagement Photos

The night before this session, we nearly called it off. It was snowing heavily and the weather man was predicting 8-10 inches of snow!

Where to even begin? Travis and Brittany’s wedding day at the Keller Brick Barn in Dallas Center was such an amazing day!
