We received a phone call several weeks ago that was an out of state inquiry. We’ve received them before but this was something very different and so very sweet. Jess called us and said she had been hunting for a photographer in Des Moines. Her boyfriend, Max, is serving in the Navy and is stationed in California. They arranged a flight for him to come to Des Moines for the weekend. They had seen the photographs of Centro and Fong’s and wanted to hit some local cuisine as well as have some portraits done! How ridiculous is that!? Needless to say, we were pretty excited to meet.
They were incredible! Max has a fantastic sense of humor. We spent several minutes reenacting Harry Caray’s weekend update on SNL. Our day started out at around 3 and we didn’t end up parting ways until almost 9pm. It was a lot of fun. Thank you Jess for having us out. And many thanks to you Max for your service to our great country. Sarah and I will be talking about this session for awhile. We look forward to meeting up with you guys again!
