Warm + Cozy Ankeny Iowa Engagement Session // 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! Thankfully, it was much closer to 3 inches, so I made the drive over to Ankeny to spend the afternoon with Marcos and Sarah.

They really do have the sweetest story. I can’t help thinking off the L.M. Montgomery quote:

“Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one’s life with pomp and blare…. perhaps it crept to one’s side like an old friend through quiet ways…. perhaps. . . love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship.”

They’ve known each other their entire lives – both spending the majority of their childhood years in Peru, and somehow, they both ended up in the same town in Iowa. When Sarah decided to go to a new church, she found out Marcos attended there and within the next few months they exchanged a conversation that, as Sarah said, “never stopped. We never ended that conversation.”

I was thrilled to hear that they had gotten engaged, and I am so unbelievably excited for you two to get married in May!

Love, Anna

for adventurous couples in love
