Peter + Caitlyn : married love || iowa city, ia portrait photographer

 photo cover.jpg
This fall my friend Caitlyn messaged me and said she knew I was full, but would I be able to make an opening for one more shoot?
She kind of wanted to get couple pictures done of her and Peter, and said I could take as long as I wanted to edit.
Well, with an offer like that I was instantly in. :)

I've known Caitlyn for awhile now, and always LOVE second shooting weddings with her.
Such an awesome girl, and there's just something about having a fellow photog
who is local to bounce ideas off of, hang out with in person, or shoot together!
She and Peter got married earlier this year and are hilarious.
Whenever I am with Caitlyn I'm laughing, so I knew this shoot would be super fun.
We started at an empty greenhouse..which at first I was bummed because there was no greenery.
But looking at the pictures we got I really adore the simplicity of it, and how the neutral tones and lines make them pop as the subjects.

And then we went downtown and basically FROZE!!
Seriously, it was so cold..thanks for rocking the weather you two.
Really excited to share my favorites from our time together!
Since I primarily photograph families, getting to focus on just a couple is always a treat for me.
I mean, I didn't have to motivate anyone with smarties -- what an idea! :)

This alley was golden..we walked past it and I spotted the smoke.
Turning around to go shoot there was a wise decision..love how these turned out.

  4. Wow! These are so neat! My grandparents owned a greenhouse and I worked there and NEVER would have thought to have a shoot in one! They are really cool! I defiantly like the ones in the greenhouse, in the alley, on the blue steps, the ones in front of the small glass windows(?), and the few in front of the grey/black background. :)

  5. Love them all. Don't know if I could pick a favorite. Hannah, you nailed it on these! :)

  6. These are killer. You did so good!!!
