Katlyn & Nick Engagement session at Prarie Lakes, Cedar Falls, IA

Katlyn + Nick’s engagement session in Cedar Falls, IA was in the perfect time of year. October has the most beautiful fall coloring, and the weather is perfect! I love learning more about our couples than just about their wedding. So Katlyn sent us over a little bit about their love story. “We are a Tinder Success Story! We met at the beginning of the summer after Katlyn’s Sophomore year and Nick’s Freshman year. We spent the summer getting to know each other and trying to figure out where the relationship would go. With Nick at UNI and Katlyn at Loras, we knew that the distance would be hard to get used to. Two years of long distance later, we managed to make it work! Nick spent many miles on the road traveling to Dubuque most weekends and we learned to talk on the phone and FaceTime when we got the chance between work and class. Katlyn graduated from Loras in May 2016, got a teaching job in Waterloo, and made the move out to Cedar Falls, Iowa. We adopted a 4 year old German Shepard – Pit-Bull mix named Mayson and he quickly became our whole life (ok, Katlyns whole life). We moved in April 2017 to a new apartment in Evansdale, Iowa. Nick graduated shortly after in May and asked Katlyn to marry him the same day!┬áNick had always told Katlyn that he would propose after he graduated from UNI (Katlyn had graduated from Loras the year before). So the day that he graduated we rushed through pictures after the ceremony, went to lunch, and then went back to his parents house in Cedar Rapids. He all but dragged me to the backyard right after we got there and in front of my family (who were in visiting) and his own, he got down on one knee and proposed”
