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!
Abbie's interest in architecture made The Salisbury House in Des Moines the obvious choice for her summer portrait session!
Sam and Abbie's Altoona, IA engagement session at Pine Hollow Stables was a horse lovers dream. We spent the whole evening walking around the pasture and even visited the spot where they got engaged!
