Katie was very excited to work with us for an engagement session. She and Adam both had some ideas of locations but the key was narrowing it down a bit. They had a long list of favorite places in the St. Louis area, we talked on the phone about using some for the engagement photos then the rest on wedding day. This will give each set of photos a unique look! After selecting the locations then we needed to figure out a plan of attack, we didn’t want to be driving around in circles, so putting the locations in order gave everything a nice flow. A few days before the session date, which was actually scheduled well in advance, we got a message from Katie that Adam wasn’t feeling well. It turned out that he had strep throat and was in no condition to do a photo shoot. I’m glad he didn’t try to just make it through because we want our couples to enjoy the moments together as we photograph the session. We found a new date for the session with wonderful weather and some fall colors peeking through. It turned out to be a great alternative to the original date. The Forest park locations that Katie and Adam picked had lots of people around on the evening we were there however we found great areas and ways to hide them. From flowers, to structures, water to fall leaves – they really have everything in these engagement photos. We even took some time to do photos with the arch in the background and give some props to the Blues statues downtown. I think they are going to need an album with all the images so that they don’t have to make the hard decision of narrowing them down. We are looking forward to the wedding day!
