Nate & Katherine {Couple} | Iowa City Portrait Photographer

Katherine and Nate are SO cute!! I had not had the chance to meet Nate before our session, he lives in New Jersey and flew in on Wednesday, and we had their session on Thursday!   We did a rush on their session, being as they’re leaving Saturday for Colorado!   I know Katherine and her family through our church. The story of how Katherine met Nate is a cute story, I didn’t get the full version, Ann, Katherine’s mom gave me the shortened, condensed version.  They met through the online homeschool they were both part of.  Katherine said they never took any classes together, but they meet none the less.  Definitely a God thing that’s for sure!

Katherine is a student at Julliard in NYC and is is an exceptional Harp player. To hear her play is just beyond words.  I know, we got the privilege of listening to her play 2 pieces in their home later that afternoon!     Nate just graduated from his homeschool ‘career’ and is a really sweet guy, and you can tell he just adores Katherine.  Nate leaves in a little over a week for a mission trip to Germany…he will be gone for over a year.  This is the reason for their session, Katherine’s mom wanted to send them off with photos to have together while they were apart.

Just so you all can enjoy her music, and Nate joins her on guitar too for many of the pieces, I have to share her YouTube channel with all of you.  This way you can see both of them play!!

I was in contact with Ann for the past month or so planning their session.  It’s been fun discussing where to shoot, etc.  We met Thursday morning in Main Amana. I love shooting there.  The scenery is just beautiful and the old buildings make such gorgeous backdrops!

You’ll notice some college basketball rivalry going on in some of the photos!! Katherine’s whole family are Duke fans and Nate isn’t!!  So we had some fun playing that up!  Well, without further ado I will share some of their photos with you:
