Katelyn & Christopher’s Des Moines Engagement Photo Session was taken at Saltwater State Park.
The tide was up but we still had a very comfortable amount of beach to shoot on which was so great! This beach varies so drastically from low to high tide. Sometimes there’s no beach to get to, and sometimes you can walk out a quarter mile. I recommend checking the tide schedule before selecting your time!
I always begin my Saltwater State Park Engagement Photo Sessions at the first parking lot. There, we can hike a little ways into trails, greenery, and pic-nic type areas. Part of why I love this location is because it is so easy to connect with my couples without the “I’m here, where are you?” phone calls. The parking lots are relatively small and it’s easy to spot each other from the first parking lot for a super smooth transition! After getting the forest look, we head down to the second parking lot.
The second parking lot opens right up to the beach with next to no walk before your feet hit sand!
Katelyn and Christopher have had to move their wedding due to covid-19 but we have them back in the calendar for a Fall 2020 Wedding! I am so so excited for the day they have planned complete with bridal party adventures and a beautiful venue.
See you this fall, you two! It’ll be worth the wait!
