An Engagement Photo Session With Brittney and Kyle

I had the pleasure of spending some time with Brittney and Kyle during their engagement photo session. Those two make a wonderful couple and were a pleasure to shoot. We started at Faust Park in Chesterfield, MO. Brittney and Kyle are planning a rustic, country-style wedding and wanted their engagement shoot to match the wedding theme. Faust Park fit the bill perfectly and offered Brittney and Kyle many different backdrops to utilize during their engagement photo session.

As we were setting up for a set of shots by one of the old cabins on the park grounds, we found ourselves racing against the weather. Despite the storm that was rolling in, we still had some time to get in many great shots before we had to pack up and end early.

We scheduled a rainout date for the second location that Brittney and Kyle had chosen for their engagement session. On the rainout date, I met up with Brittney and Kyle at Quail Ridge Park in St. Charles county, MO. We started down the trail that loops by the Quail Ridge Lodge and gazebo. The weather that day was very nice. We found some great spots to stop and do photos on the trail. By the end of the loop, Brittney and Kyle had picked out a number of great spots for photos. I could tell they were excited about the photos we had done that day and I was looking forward to sharing those photos with them.

Melinda and James, engaged…

Meet Melinda and James, a couple that love to get out and have fun.  They met at Blueberry Hill, a place that reminds Melinda of Seattle with its live music scene.  James, a St Louis native, happened to be at the same concert.  The two struck up a conversation and the rest, as they say, is history.  Congratulations Melinda and James!
