Erika + Brandon | Squaw Creek Engagement Session | Marion, Iowa

“March 1st, 2018. Brandon had planned a steak dinner at our home; however, we never ate that steak dinner. Instead, we went on a walk to Brandon’s parents and had dinner at a mexican restaurant with his mom and dad. When we got home, Erika was surprised with a bouquet of flowers that the florist had dropped off while we were on our walk and Brandon went down on one knee and confessed his love.”

The Proposal Story: 
“He proposed in November 2017. He called me and told me he got our dog a new dog tag that he thought I would like. When he got home from work he quick put the new dog tag on the dog (without me noticing) and he told me to call the dog over to  me so I could see her new tag. It read, “Marry My Daddy?”

Kerry + Curt | Engagement Session | Earlville, Iowa

Jaclyn captured these two perfectly; she is not only their photographer, but she’s also Kerry’s cousin. Kerry and Cut are getting married on September 15th at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Earlville, with a reception following at Worthington Memorial Hall in Worthington. Jaclyn is so excited to document their wedding!

Kerry and Curt met three and a half years ago on a blind date set up by mutual friends. When asked what makes them most excited when they think of marriage, they answered “We are most excited about spending the rest of our lives together. Always having a support system, a person to vent to after a bad day, and knowing at the end of the day we have each other. Yes, we already have that now, but something about saying we are getting married makes it mean so much more.”

The Proposal Story:
“The previous Christmas I had booked a hog hunting trip to Texas with my dad and Curt. Little did I know at the time, they had teamed up and gave me quite the surprise! Curt knew I would pack our bags as I am the planner out of both us, so he had my dad bring the ring in his suitcase. Somehow Curt had gotten the ring from the suitcase to the binocular bag before we went out for the evening hunt. We had just gotten in the hut and he kept asking for his binoculars and I couldn’t figure out why he needed them right this second as they were in the bottom of the bag. As soon as I got the binocular bag out, he grabbed it from my hands, saying he saw something he needed to look at. When I finished putting stuff back in the bag, I turned to see a shiny object in his hand and he said “Will you marry me?” I was so shocked that I didn’t even say yes right away and he had to ask again, even though he already knew the answer. Not only did he propose, but he also shot his first hog within a half hour afterwards! We all came home with hogs that weekend, but also a wonderful memory too!”

“I could list a lot of things that I love about her, but I think what I love most about Kerry is how kind and caring she is. She goes out of her way to do anything for me, even if means me coming before her. From doing every day things around the house to surprising me with little things like my favorite candy or a little note in my lunch box, she is always thinking of me.”

“I love how dependable he is, I can always count on him to be there for me. He goes above and beyond to make sure that I’m happy. Whether it’s saving me from creepy crawlies (spiders and lady bugs are my arch enemy) or making me laugh after a long day. No matter what, I know he’s going to be there and for that I am forever grateful to have such a special man to share my life with.”

“Our favorite thing to do together as a couple is a tie between curling up and watching a movie and being in the outdoors. There are some days we love curling up in bed and watching a movie and then there are other days where we pack up our fishing gear and go fishing.”

“I think our favorite part about our engagement session was our photographer! She made everything feel so natural and made us laugh! She even cuddled a tree to help describe what she wanted us to do, how could we not laugh at that! Curt doesn’t get excited about having his picture taken, but even he said that he enjoyed himself and is looking forward to taking MORE pictures on our wedding day!”
