Meet Andrew and Nicole. They are fun, warm-hearted, bubbly, passionate, and all-around good people. Within a few minutes of us meeting for the first time, I knew I liked them! We sat for several hours just sharing stories and hanging out (as I do with a lot of our couples), and we really connected. Nicole had a ton of great questions during their consultation, which showed me that she was really prepared for the meeting, and that she and Andrew really had done their research about wedding photography and what to look for in a wedding photographer. (THIS IS SO INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT!! I'll have a blog post that talks about that very soon!)

One of my favorite things about engagement sessions is that I get to see the couple in a different light.  I get to see them nervous and anxious... and then as the session continues, I get to see the anxiousness melt away, and I watch their real personalities come out.  These two warmed up rather quickly, and really had a great time.  I love how their images are the perfect mix of warm-hearted and silliness.  Some of their facial expressions caused me to crack up!!

We did their session around Lafayette Square.  It's one of my favorite neighborhoods here in St. Louis.  The old, historic buildings make such a great backdrop!  (Also - check out Nikki's shoes in this shot below... aren't they great?!)

This next image is one of my favorites so far this season.  It's not often that I am able to catch a quiet moment between a couple, especially when they are as lively and bubbly as these guys are.  Here, you can see how connected they really are... and it's always an honor to be able to capture a moment like this...

As their final image, Andrew had one special request: "I need a picture of me upside-down.  Can you do that?"

 

I think we nailed it...

Congratulations, you two!  We can't wait until April 2014!!!!
