Kate + Grant | St. Louis Engagement Photography

Awww Kate & Grant! Kate and I have been pen pals (or at least electronic ones) for quite a while, discussing her upcoming wedding and engagement photo plans! Planning a St. Louis wedding from South Carolina can’t be easy! Good thing they have the help of the talented wedding planner, Kristin Ashley Events!:)

We decided to have their engagement session on a Friday. In Forest Park. Need I say more? This park is crazy busy, especially with the weather being so beautiful. I fell in love with Kate’s bubbly personality from the moment I met her and also just loved how laid back Grant was. He just let us do our thing! The two of them are adorable together!

So on one hand, I am super appreciative of the park’s beauty and all that it offers (including sentimental connections for many of my couples), but I think I need a break from it for the next few engagement sessions (and weddings too!). As a challenge to myself and future brides, I’m officially boycotting the place for the next few months in hopes of finding other fun, romantic locations. However, if you pull my arm and drag me with my feet kicking and tell me a really amazingly romantic story about why we should shoot in Forest Park ….. I’ll consider going. (Wink!) Despite all the crowds, traffic, events, weddings, and even having security ask us to step away from the Art Museum (ok, I guess I understand that standing on building ledges is against their policy), we made it work and I think the photos turned out really beautiful! Our engagement sessions are meant to capture the chemistry of a couple, so a lot of our images are lovey dovey and just plain fun! However, I know everyone needs that newspaper image or one for mom + dad, so we snap a few posed and call it a day. 😉

Kate + Grant plan to be married late August with a ceremony at Messiah Lutheran and reception following at Lumen. Can’t wait!

Enjoy some of my favorite images!
