We received Jessie and Scott’s “Story of Our Love” engagement guestbook album yesterday – just in time for them to pick it up. The “Big Day” is tomorrow! Jessie has put a lot of work into planning and designing the details of the wedding. I can’t wait to see the results of all her hard work.
The outside cover of the guestbook is a custom designed padded canvas cover.
The binding of these albums allows us to create a continuous image across both pages.
Here are the pages of the album…

“What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined… to strengthen each other … to be at one with each other in silent unspeakable memories.” — George Eliot
Enjoying coffee together. One of their favorite activities.
Evening in Valley Junction
Walking the dogs in the dog park
“To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with” — Mark Twain
Being Iowa Hawkeye fans, we decided to do some engagement portraits outside Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City
This location, the Canoe House (or Lagoon Shelter House) is special to Jessie because she was on the University of Iowa rowing team.
A part of you has grown in me. And so you see it’s you and me together forever and never apart, maybe in distance, but never in heart.
There were so many images that we created from their Story of Our Love sessions, but didn’t have room for in the album since we had to leave plenty of whitespace for people to sign on.
wow i love this idea. the photo guest book is a great momento to have at the end. its little extra touches like this that really make a wedding special. good for you guys. 🙂
Nice composition and cover. Looks very elegant.
