inquire about your session!
Seemed like forever since I last saw Danielle, but she was just as bubbly and delightful as I remembered! Danielle had been a bridesmaid in her friend Aryn’s wedding last year and she and the other ladies were so easy to work with on that busy and beautiful summer day! Now it was Danielle’s turn since her fiance, Luke had asked that all important question to be his forever! Danielle and Luke live down in the St. Louis, Missouri and loved the idea of having their engagement photos taken in their beloved city. I went to college down in St. Louis so anytime I get a chance to visit it is a bonus for me! Danielle and Luke particularly adore the Lafayette Square area of the city with its cool vibe, coffee shops, and one of a kind streets. Everywhere you turn there are wrought iron gates and fences in front of massive vintage homes. So the plan with Danielle and Luke was simple for their engagement session…Capture this incredibly sweet couple as we walked around and discovered new spots in Lafayette Square!
Danielle and Luke were dressed to impress as she wore a gorgeous maroon long and flowy dress and he was in a white collared shirt, navy slacks, and a lovely tie. They fit in perfectly with the style of the city for sure! Right off the bat, we found a couple of amazing spots where the pair could snuggle up and begin to relax in each other’s arms. And it didn’t hurt that on this late October evening the temperatures were in the 60’s and the sun was perfect during those golden hours! Danielle and Luke are down to earth and playful with one another, which made my job super fun and a piece of cake! As we got closer to sunset, Danielle and Luke made a quick outfit change and we headed into Lafayette Square Park to finish up our time together. The park is charming and at that point, we were finally starting to see a few trees changing colors, which we were all excited about! Danielle and Luke, I believe enjoyed every moment they got to walk hand in hand or squeeze one another in the park. We found some fantastic spots that made it seem like they were the only two in the world! Danielle and Luke are a phenomenal couple and I am thrilled I had the opportunity to be a part of this special time in their lives!
