Missouri Botanical Garden Engagement | Cody+Kristie!

Hello everyone! Liana here, and I’m excited to be sharing this engagement session from way back at the end of May! Cody and Kristie traveled in to visit family, and we managed to squeeze in a beautiful (albeit, hot!) engagement session at the Missouri Botanical Gardens! This is one of my favorite spaces in St. Louis, and I am so glad I finally got to photograph a session there! Check out their gorgeous photos below <3

Cody+Kristie: Engagement Sneak Peek!

Good evening everyone! Liana here, and oh boy, do we have a lot of new work to share over the next few weeks! Not only do we have an engagement session, but we have a beautiful wedding to share as well! We’ll also have some personal sessions coming up too. For now though, we have a sneak peek of our most recent engagement session.

Kristie and Cody live in Garden City, Kansas, but Kristie’s family is from the STL area! They came into town over Memorial Day Weekend/Week, and got in touch with me. I know Kristie’s mom, Diane, through networking, and Diane was originally the one who asked me about engagement sessions! I was more than eager to share, and when she told me Kristie and Cody were thinking of one of my favorite places, I couldn’t say no! Kristie and Cody wished to have their engagement session at the Missouri Botanical Gardens! You all know from previous posts that I absolutely love the Gardens, and was thrilled to FINALLY photograph a session there!

Of course, in true Midwest fashion, it was about 85 degrees with 99% humidity haha. They were troopers though, and we managed to get some beautiful photos! Check them out below!


Future Mr. & Mrs. | Smart Engagement

Good evening, friends!

Katie here, and I’m so excited to be sharing some more images from Kyle and Chrystal’s engagement session from October! It was a cool afternoon at Capen Park in Columbia, Missouri but these two did great! We had to climb a little bit to get the views at the beginning, but we (thankfully) survived and the views were sooo worth it! AND they brought their pups, even better right?!

Kyle is my friend Paige’s brother in law, I photographed her maternity session a few years ago and actually photographed her wedding some years ago, so I’m very excited to be capturing Kyle and Chrystal’s special day next year!

I hope you enjoy tonight’s blog blog, stay tuned for their wedding day next year… I have a feeling it’s going to be fantastic!

Smart Engagement | Sneak Peek!

Good evening, everyone!

Katie here, and I’m excited for tonight’s sneak peek! Meet Kyle and Chrystal- and their adorable pups! Kyle proposed about a year ago on trip to visit his brother, Eric and his wife Paige in Washington. Paige is one of my best friends from High School and I actually photographed their wedding years ago, so needless to say I’m super excited to be capturing Kyle and Chrystal’s special day!

Be sure to be on the lookout for the full blog post soon, and enjoy this sneak peek in the meantime!

Annie & Keith | Sneak Peek Engagement

Hey everyone, Liana here tonight, and I am bringing you a great couple, a cool car, and some views that you just can't beat! Annie & Keith are a very down to earth couple, and we had a great time during their engagement session, despite the fact that it was 80+ degrees with about 100% humidity! Regardless of the hot weather, we met up at Klondike Park, which is located in Defiance, Missouri. Annie and Keith had never been there, and I had only been there once before, and that was several years ago. Exploring a new place is always a fun time, especially with views like the ones we got! 

Annie and Keith actually grew up a couple of subdivisions away from each other, but didn't meet until later on in life! They have two precious little boys, and we're so excited to see them at their wedding in November! For now, though, enjoy these sneak peek photos!

Conner & Catherine | Engaged!

Good evening, everyone!

Katie here, and I'm SO excited to be sharing this sneak peek from Saturday morning- Conner & Catherine's engagement session! These two are *so* stinking cute together, and were so laid back the entire session. 

We met at Forest Park in St. Louis bright and early Saturday morning at the Grand Basin Fountains. These High School sweethearts actually took their prom pictures here, and I LOVE that they wanted to start there with photos. It was the perfect morning, not too hot/not too cool, the sun was peeking out every now and then, and as soon as I met Conner and Catherine I could tell how much they love each other. 

I brought my husband Beau, who you all know from previous sessions, to assist me on this session- so you know there were some laughs had! It was so great having fun and getting to know Conner & Catherine during this session, I cannot wait for their wedding in June 2019! In the meantime, please enjoy this sneak peek from these two love birds engagement session. It's so hard to pick a favorite, I'm loving these images so much already!

Jane & Joey: The Countdown is On!

Hello everyone, and Happy Tuesday! It's Liana here, hoping that everyone is having a great week so far! This week's post is actually inspired by a Facebook post that one of our grooms-to-be posted yesterday!

Joey wrote, "5 more months until we say "I DO" Jane Jane!! We are getting closer!! I can't wait to marry you!! You make me the happiest man in the world!! I love you!! ❤️" and attached was a picture from their engagement session! 

This inspired me to re-blog their engagement session, since it is not on our new website! Jane and Joey have amazing chemistry, and are one of the cutest, and most laid-back couples I have ever met! We had an amazing early morning engagement session, complete with three total outfits and a ton of different locations :) Their wedding is October 8th, and we are looking forward to it just as much as Jane and Joey are! I can't wait to see all of the beautiful details of their wedding <3

Kristen+Spencer:High School Sweethearts

Hello everyone! Liana here, and I am so thrilled to be introducing you to one of our wedding clients this year! I first met Kristen when I was a junior in high school, and ever since I can remember, it's been her and Spencer. Forever. So when I randomly ran into her at the gym sometime last fall, and saw the ring on her finger, I knew immediately that Spencer had finally popped the question! I was so happy to reconnect with both of them, and now Katie and I will be photographing their wedding in October! 

This past weekend we headed out to Faust Park in Chesterfield for an early morning photo session. Even though it was about 45 degrees out, Spencer and Kristen stuck through it and we got some gorgeous photos! Their chemistry is amazing, and you can tell that they're meant to be, just by the way they look at each other <3

 

Aren't they just the cutest couple? I love their chemistry and I'm super excited for their wedding! They're pretty excited too ;) There's a lot of great sessions coming up in the next few weeks, so make sure you're connected on Facebook and Instagram for behind the scenes and sneak peeks!
