Katie + Pat...but first, coffee! | Downtown St. Louis Chilly Engagement Session

I don’t even know where to start…..this couple….ohmy! Madly in love and full of laughter and lots of kisses!

Pat has the sweetest little daughter, and she was so awesome to have with us. We started the session on the Hill at their FAVORITE coffee shop, Shaw’s Coffee, which is in an old building that was a bank for a quick cup. Believe the hype….this coffee is PHENOMENAL!

It had rained all day and was super chilly, but that didn’t stop us at all. We went to a few other spots, including the Fire Department, where Pat is a fireman, and even the spot on top of the Angad Arts Hotel where Pat proposed to Katie! It was all soooo sweet and fun!

We did so much spontaneous exploring which was extremely fun for me. Plus, I think we were able to grab some AMAZING shots at our impromptu spots.

Im so excited for their wedding in June! They are so fun to be around and I can only imagine the wedding is going to be so awesome!

Until then,

xo,

Graduation is in the air. | Busch Stadium Downtown St. Louis | St. Louis Senior Photographer

It's that time of year when the excitement of Graduation is in the air. I think this time of life is such a special time. Closing the chapter to your childhood and starting the chapter of the rest of your life. There are so many different bittersweet emotions. 

This session was awesome! It was chilly and windy, but it was awesome none the less. I love shooting Downtown St. Louis, and we scored that there was a Cardinals game happening during the shoot. Some might think this is a bad thing, but it's not. It's AWESOME! The lights, the sounds....everything! Especially for this guy who is a baseball player! Everything really came together perfectly, and I'm so happy we made this happen! :-)
