When Josh and Arlyn met at college, they were immediately drawn to one another’s enthusiasm for life. They recognized this fervor and excitement in the other person, and since the first day they walked home from class, they’ve been inseparable. For their engagement photos we traveled down to beautiful Dubuque, Iowa where the couple snagged a cup of hot cocoa at a local coffeeshop before braving the chilly weather at a park along the Mississippi River. Music is a central part of who Josh and Arlyn are as a couple, as well as individuals. When Josh proposed he played his guitar and sang the oh-so-romantic song “Question” by Rhett Miller before asking her to be his. For us, this meant we definitely wanted to include his guitar in the photos. Our goal was to show the natural romance of two people simply enjoying being together.
On a personal note, this session was particularly special to me as Josh happens to be my younger brother. I am so glad that he has found the one person that makes him happy – the one person to cherish and be cherished by in return. Their wedding is coming up in July and we wish them a beautiful future! Congratulations, Josh and Arlyn!
