Iowa Family Photography, Midwest Lifestyle Family Photos | An afternoon with the H FamilyOctober 31, 2014

14_10Carolyn Ann Photography Family Photos006_WEB

THIS family- Seriously right out of a catalog! I had so much fun hanging out with these folks. They were so sweet and kind and introduced Alex and myself to a new little lake town in the center of Iowa! Plus, this mama is a talented photographer herself. And I must say, as a photographer when you are shooting another photog, it makes you feel a million kinds of awesome. Its incredibly flattering whenever someone invites you into their lives to document their relationships, but with other photographers there’s a bit of “oh my gosh did she really pick me?!?” gym class, heart-a-flutter stuff going on ;)14_10Carolyn Ann Photography Family Photos024_WEB 14_10Carolyn Ann Photography Family Photos031_WEB 14_10Carolyn Ann Photography Family Photos019_WEB 14_10Carolyn Ann Photography Family Photos020_WEB 14_10Carolyn Ann Photography Family Photos025_WEB 14_10Carolyn Ann Photography Family Photos015_WEB 14_10Carolyn Ann Photography Family Photos011_WEB 14_10Carolyn Ann Photography Family Photos012_WEB 14_10Carolyn Ann Photography Family Photos017_WEB

Lake MacBride Engagement Photos, Iowa City Engagement Photos | Tori & Austin Engaged!October 20, 2014

Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged032_WEB

These two. Le sigh. These two. Tori and Austin are so sweet, fun, and well it can’t be denied- attractive! They scouted out this sweet little spot alongside Lake MacBride and we went on a light-chasing adventure. I’m so excited to photograph their San Antonio, Texas wedding in 2016- escaping the sad and dark Iowa winter is going to be a dream! Enjoy this lovely pair :)Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged095_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged045_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged198_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged050_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged013_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged003_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged078_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged202_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged041_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged194_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged178_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged108_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged069_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged085_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged173_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged157_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged150_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged017_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged163_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged151_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged205_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged024_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged055_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged212_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged131_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged105_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged042_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged080_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged100_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged111_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged070_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged140_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged125_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged145_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Tori Austin Engaged135_WEB

Celebration Farm Wedding, Solon Iowa Wedding Photography | Alicia & Josh’s Fall WeddingOctober 10, 2014

Carolyn Ann Photography Celebration Farm Wedding114_WEB

I am so happy to share this beautiful wedding with you. Alicia and Josh have grown to be friends and I was so happy to spend their wedding day with them. It is incredibly obvious how much love and respect they have for one another, which is just plain awesome to document. There were so many thoughtful and handmade details, along with friends and family that were thrilled to spend the day celebrating these two. Enjoy!
