Center Grove Orchard 2014 | Des Moines, Iowa Pumpkin Patch

Last Saturday was a picture perfect Fall Iowa day. We visited the Center Grover Orchard a few miles north of Des Moines in Cambridge with some great friends. We’ve been there before but I must say it is THE COOLEST orchard/pumpkin patch I’ve ever been to! It is not only huge but incredibly well maintained. If you have kids (or just love doing fall things) it is simply amazing.

I can’t even name the number of activities they have! A jumping pillow for the kids, slides, hay rack rides, a corn maze, animals, pumpkin patch, apple picking, corn pit to play in and THE BEST homemade apple cider doughnuts you could ever dream about. Be prepared to be amazed.

It has been the most perfect Fall weather in Iowa this year, I hope you all got a chance to visit an orchard! Here are a few favorites from our trip. These are all taken with a Canon 5D Mark III and 50L f/1.2 (my fav walk around/go to lens!).

Happy Fall from the Urich’s!

Grant + Kylie | St Ambrose Cathedral | Des Moines Science Center of Iowa Wedding

I was so excited when Kylie contacted us to photographer her and Grant’s wedding a few months ago. I grew up tumbling with Kylie and looking back I remember her as always being the sweetest person inside and out. Grant you are one lucky man!

The day started out at the wonderful Salon W in East Village for hair & makeup. From there we headed to the St. Ambrose Cathedral for getting ready, photos and eventually a gorgeous ceremony.

From there the trolly took us around Des Moines for some gorgeous sunset photos and back to the Science Center of Iowa for the reception. I do have to say the Science Center is such a cool place to have a wedding reception!

Congrats to you two, Kylie you were such a gorgeous bride and we had a blast photographing your big day! Enjoy the photos!
