We were thrilled to finally get Kelsey and Mary in front of our cameras during their engagement shoot at Grindstone Nature Area! We’re sad we can’t make it to their Florida wedding later this year but so glad to have captured engagement photos of them here in Columbia. Kelsey and Mary have fun together and it shows in their portraits. We wish you guys the best!
Daniel approached me (Andrew) while shooting pictures at The Crossing and asked if I’d be interested in capturing his proposal. “Sure!” I said with no idea it was happening in four days! Daniel and I scouted the location (McBaine Bur Oak), formulated a covert plan of action and it all came together. He picked up the ring an hour before he was to propose…talk about cutting it close!
In order to keep the proposal and photography a complete surprise, I dressed as a cyclist and acted as if I was repairing a flat on my bike. The MKT is nearby – a perfect cover. Shoshana parked across the road; her cover was that she just brought me a new inner tube. We must have blended in because Alicia did not notice or suspect a thing. Our cameras at the ready, we secretly snapped away as Daniel went down on one knee.
After capturing the special and private moment we grabbed some engagement photos. Daniel even brought some bubbly, and the evening was perfect.
Congratulations, Daniel and Alicia, we’re so excited for you guys and your new life together.
After shooting Jason’s surprise proposal to Aimee at Strange Donuts in March, we were thrilled when they asked us to photograph their wedding. We recently captured their engagement photos at Shelter Gardens and look forward to their wedding next spring.
The Newcomer School on the Shelter Garden grounds was especially interesting for this session because Aimee’s mom attended a one-room schoolhouse in Kansas!
Congratulations, Aimee and Jason! We look forward to your wedding day.
Ashlee and Adam appreciated the feel of a family session we did last fall and asked us to photograph their wedding. Their engagement session included an old family tobacco barn and a beautiful spring evening.
This couple definitely compliments each other, joking back and forth and bantering with Andrew.
The light streaming through the doors and cracks of the barn created a warm, country feel as lazy as the evening.
A couple of pictures on the tailgate as well as some ring shots completed this session.
Congratulations Ashlee and Adam! We’re excited about your obvious love for one another and looking forward to your wedding!
We are excited about this couple! They’ve asked us to photograph their wedding in October and after seeing the beauty of their love and affection they shared during their engagement session, we know the big day will be special.
The day before the shoot, as is typical, we scouted out the location. They suggested Rock Bridge State Park and so we searched for areas that offered something a little different than what you typically see in this location.
The day of the session had us checking the weather every five minutes as storms threatened. Thankfully the rain held off and the clouds even parted for the sun to shine through at the right moments.
The newly minted leaves added an electric green to some images while the multitude of textures of last season’s grasses fed our hungry cameras.
Congratulations, Aaron and Sarah! We greatly enjoyed ourselves and look forward to telling the story of your wedding day.
