Wendy and Nestor are one of the sweetest couples you will ever meet! I know a number of people who have met them and were surprised to find they’re not married yet — they seem like one of those couples who’s been together forever. They just click like that! We met up at Central Perk, a coffee shop here in Fort Dodge, to start their session. Kaleb, a barista there, was awesome enough to do some of his latte art for a few shots too! I’ve been wanting to do a coffeeshop engagement for aaaaages now, so I was pretty stoked. After Central Perk, the clouds cleared and we were able to get some springy outdoor photographs as well. I cannot wait until their wedding next month! Take a peek at our lovely time together:

Amanda quickly became someone we consider a friend, after it was clear how much she cared about us and our special day. During our engagement session, Amanda really took the time to understand us as a couple as well as our individual personalities. She made it a total blast and even made my camera-shy husband comfortable posing for pictures. The day of the wedding, she made ever… Read more
“Amanda was one of the best parts about our wedding…”
My husband said the day after our wedding, “Amanda was one of the best parts about our wedding,” and he was absolutely right. Our photographer, Amanda, was excellent. She was there early to photograph our hours of getting ready, and was upbeat and so positive throughout the entire day. She was relaxed and made us feel at ease during photos. She was lovely to work with throughout the entire process, organized, and quick to respond.

We had to cancel our wedding due to COVID and decided to elope last-minute. Amanda was incredible! She responded within minutes and we were able to “meet” her virtually to discuss our vision. Amanda is friendly, professional, and made us feel comfortable instantly. She collaborated with us to create the perfect vision for our elopement day. When we got the photos, my husband said, “She made us look like models!” She really did. We were able to buy printed photos from Amanda’s website for great p… Read more

“Truly you have a great eye…”
I wanted to compliment you. I’ve been in the media business for a long time and around photographers and I want to tell you how wonderful your photos are. Of course I am biased- but truly you have a great eye. The composition is wonderful. And I saw the lighting and the cluttered atmosphere at the Opera House and was amazed at what you pulled off. Congratulations.
