but you wouldn't have known any of this! 

The day went beautifully .... so smooth .... so laid back ....

seriously. it. was. amazing.  

AND I simply could not narrow down the pictures.... so be ready for A LOT. :)

Thanks for letting us be a part of this beautiful day, Brett + Samm!

Engaged Part One: Colton + Briana at The Hochstetler Farm, Wellman Iowa http://www.brittwilsonphotography.com/blog/2015/10/engaged-colton-briana It was the perfect evening for pictures with my brother-in-law & soon to be sister-in-law--- out at my family farm! These two were willing to go anywhere & do whatever I requested….. but truly they were so easy to pose because they are so natural + sweet together! And I could tell they were just having fun because they were together! I had fun too--- as the third wheel! ;) 

So many good laughs that evening…. + photographs to capture it all…. except my "run" across the field! ;) 

Here is what I am calling Part One of their session:

Stay tuned for more! 

love,

Nathan + Megan: Prairie Flower Baptist Church Wedding: Part I http://www.brittwilsonphotography.com/blog/2015/8/nathan-megan-wedding Nathan + Megan got married in June at the church where she grew up (same one as my husband, Caleb!). I was so excited when she contacted me about photographing their wedding day! Megan is the sweetest bride…. so of course the whole day was such a joy to be a part of.

And nothing makes me happier than being able to document a couple who puts God at the center of their relationship, + these two you can tell do just that! 

Here is Part I of their wedding day…. Enjoy! :)

 

Part II coming soon...

Proposal: Wilson Woods Farmhouse, Kalona Iowa http://www.brittwilsonphotography.com/blog/2015/8/proposal-wilson-woods When we met Briana about a year ago, I knew right away that she was going to marry Colton (my brother in law)! They are just such a perfect match, I couldn't be happier for them--- or our family! 

And when Colton asked me to help set up the proposal + photograph it I think I was almost as excited as he was! But actually not really….because he LITERALLY couldn't wait… He wanted it to be "tonight" two nights before when we were doing a practice run through! :) And when we said lets plan for you to have her here no earlier than 8:00pm…. 8:30 would be best for light….. He was here with her at 7:58pm!!! HA! 

He even surprised her with her best friends waiting up at the house, & they lit off fireworks after she said yes.

 

 

It was such a beautiful evening!

And I am so excited for next summer when we get to add Briana to the Wilson family! 

Good work Colton!

 

love---Britt

White: Wilson's Orchard, Iowa City, Iowa Family Photographer http://www.brittwilsonphotography.com/blog/2014/10/white-wilsons-orchard Another perfectly coordinated family photo session for this family,

complete with navy, gray + creams...

accented with red apples + golden sunlight.

I always love photographing this family, Stefanie has similar style to me & works for a printing company, so she just gets it.

Great suggestion by her to use the beautiful Wilson's Orchard in Iowa City for a backdrop.

Thanks for booking me again White family, 

it was FUN!

I look forward to watching your kids grow!

Jenna + Maddy: {SENIORS+BEST FRIENDS+COUSINS} Wellman, Iowa Senior Photography http://www.brittwilsonphotography.com/blog/2014/8/jenna-maddy These girls.

Where do I even begin?!

...

One of my earliest memories is sitting on my grandma's big floral couch holding my littlest cousin & brand new baby, Jenna.

Their family had just moved to Kalona from Des Moines & I was SUPER excited because now we had a GIRL baby in the family.

And about a month earlier, Maddy was born to my oldest cousin, Krista in Kansas. 

...

Growing up with these girls in the summers meant running around in the grass next to the cabin, pushing them on the old wooden swing {okay so it used to be NEW}, playing in the sand next to the pond, roasting hot dogs & marshmallows over the fire, and bringing all of my old dance costumes for them to dress up in & put on a show.

I truly cannot believe they are seniors in Highschool now.

I am enjoying watching them become who they are as soon to be adults...

Excited to see what the future holds for you two! 

 

{A special THANKS to The Barn for letting us shoot at your location in the photos below!}

 

Thanks for all the fun & laughs sweet girls!

love,

---b
