Jim and Ariel's October Fall Engagement Session in Lafayette Square Park | St. Louis Wedding Photographer
How is it already February?! And how am I just getting around to sharing Ariel and Jim's GORGEOUS sunrise session from October? Well I think we all know the answer :): October is possibly the biggest month for wedding photography in Missouri so you shoot shoot shoot then share share share during the slower months (Jan-March).
I am absolutely obsessed with Ariel and Jim's session. These two incorporated personal elements that made their engagement photographs special and intimate. Ariel's family is from China, so she started her sunrise shoot in her formal Chinese gown. For the second half of her session (p.s. don't you love her Ted Baker cocktail dress??), we went around Forest Park and stopped at their apartment in the Central West End. Ariel and Jim brought out love letters exchanged and plane tickets saved as a nod to their long distance relationship.
A personal aside: Brad and I did long distance after college, and this really pulled at my heartstrings.
We concluded in the most beautiful neighborhood in the city: Lafayette Square. Their session couldn't have been more perfect, and I absolutely cannot wait for their September wedding at Bissinger's Caramel Room.
