You know those people you come across in life who forever change it? Myra is one of those humans. I mean, if I hadn't of met her I probably never would've experienced the flat glory of Des Monies, Iowa...
And of course a whole bunch of other things like numerous near-death experiences and all-night dance offs...
Myra and I met on a study abroad excursion in Urbino, Italy. Her bubbly personality was, at first, a deterrent to me but she quickly broke through my shell and we spent the rest of our abroad experience eating too much nutella, drinking too much wine, and fretting too much about our futures.
Fast forward nearly three years and I find myself in Des Monies shooting engagements for the most beautiful, silly, intelligent couple--Myra and her fiance, Josh. AND in a few months, I'll be in Ireland documenting their wedding on the Cliffs of Moher! I'm pretty sure I blacked out for a second when Myra called and asked me if I would be willing to go to Ireland to be her wedding photographer.
So while we anxiously await the wedding, here are some of my favorites from their engagement.
