Meet Kyle & Johanna. A perfectly paired couple who live in Iowa City and have so many memories and stories around the area. It was so fun to explore around the city and hear the stories behind each location. We started their session where Kyle grew up. It was fun to hear about all the hard work his mom puts in to have a gorgeous garden area that make for a great spot for a little backyard stroll! :)
Kyle is also involved in a fun and crazy youth ministry called Young Life, that meets at a really fun barn only a few minutes from his home. He has spent a lot of hours and has a lot of great memories there, so it was another perfect setting for their images.!
This is the front porch of Johanna’s current home. It’s a lovely older home with so much character and beauty! It was on these steps that Kyle and Johanna had their first real and quality conversation. Such a simple, yet wonderful memory.
There is a little bit of rooftop right outside Johanna’s bedroom window where the two have spent many nights talking and star-gazing, including the night Kyle asked Johanna to spend the rest of her life with him. It was only right to capture them there.
Finally, we explored around downtown Iowa City and stopped at some of their favorite spots, including Kyle’s favorite: a golden bull painted on a building wall – which is hilarious. We ended the evening at the Old Capitol complete with the perfect sunset light. There are a few shots that show a bit of their goofy side here too, which I love :)
Kyle & Johanna – You two really are a perfect pair and I loved hearing all the bits and pieces of your story. I’m excited to document this next big step when you say your vows right there in your lovely city!
