Carrie + Anders: Engaged: An Urban Downtown St. Louis Engagement Session

Carrie & Anders might be the most fashion-forward couple I know.  These two made their session look effortless!!  I couldn't get over their unique style... it's one I've always tried to emulate but can never pull off.  LOL!These two met while Anders was in St. Louis for business in 2015.  (He's from Denmark!)  He said that he took one look at her and fell in love.  She says that he came right up to her and asked her for her number.  He went back to Denmark a few days later and they kept in touch.  A week after that he was ready to come back to America and take her on a real date... and he did just that.  He came back and ended up staying a ...

Carrie + Anders: Engaged: An Urban Downtown St. Louis Engagement Session

To say that Shannon & Zach are HUGE movie buffs is quite an understatement.  During my first meeting with them, I would venture to say that Zach quoted no less then 10 movies during our first hour of conversation at their bridal consult!  They have transformed their basement into a theater where they have weekly movie nights.  They even host an annual Oscar Party with all of their friends (where formal attire is required) complete with a red carpet, awards, speeches, statuettes, and even paparazzi! (I mean, seriously... how awesome is that?!)As I got to know these two, I knew they needed an engagement session as fun and unique as they are.  I approached them about an ...

Carrie + Anders: Engaged: An Urban Downtown St. Louis Engagement Session

Lesa and Dan balance each other out perfectly.  She's a super organized, detail oriented woman and he's a super chill, laid-back loving guy.  Seeing them together is heartwarming and hanging out with them is is so much fun!  Lesa and I worked a long time to come up with the perfect settings for their engagement session to really tell the story of who they are as a couple.  Thankfully, all the stars aligned, and Demun Oyster Bar (their favorite hangout) pulled out all the stops of us!  Make sure you check out this funky, hip bar that serves the freshest oysters in the city!!Lesa rocked this incredible black dress and vintage-styled heels, while Dan sported a sleek ...

Sarah + Mike: Engaged
Sunday, April 15, 2012

Sarah and Mike came to ATP through Sarah's sister, Emily (who is now one of our BirthStory clients!). Emily and I taught together several years ago, and we all ran in to each other at a bridal show that we were at last year. Before I knew it, Sarah and Mike were in my office for a consultation. Their consultation was one of the longest (and best!) consults last year... because we had so much fun!! We sat in my office for almost four hours that night, giggling and cracking jokes. When they left, I sat back and thought to myself, "I don't care if they book ATP or not... we're gonna be great friends!". Needless to say, they accepted our offer the next day, and the rest is history!This couple ...
