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 few weeks. THE REST IS HISTORY!!
They were married just a few months ago in Las Vegas and moved together to Copenhagen, Denmark shortly after that. (You should see Carrie's Snapchat... it's SO GORGEOUS THERE!) Next year they are holding a "Hometown" wedding & reception here in St. Louis and I'm so excited to spend the day with them and meet Anders' family!!
Congratulations, you guys, and thank you for choosing Abbie Takes Pictures!
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 suit. My inspiration for this location was a smidge of "Madmen" meets "Classy Hip Funky".
Their 2nd location was a more casual look where Lesa and I worked together to coordinate their outfits without making them too "matchy-matchy". (This is always the key to looking fantastic in your engagement photos!) I love how her scarf ties in the gorgeous plum color of his sweater. (Another detail to note: These are some of the major colors in their wedding theme!)
Congratulations, Lesa & Dan! We're so excited for your big day in May at The 9th Street Abbey with Patty Long Catering!
