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 ...

Friday, August 16, 2013

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 ...
