A couple days ago, I made the drive to Ste. Genevieve, MO for an evening engagement session. It was the first time I was meeting Curt and Dana and I’m always a little nervous when meeting new clients. I want to give a good first impression. I mean, I am the one they hired to do their wedding photos so they have to like me! EEK! From the minute I walked through the door of their new home (they just moved in a couple months ago) I felt right at home. Dana wanted help deciding on which clothes she and Curt should wear. We kept asking Curt what he thought, and like most guys he just kept saying, “whatever you girls think is best.”
When they were all dressed in their first outfit, we drove over to Curt’s family farm just a couple of minutes away. I saw lots of beautiful homes but there was this gorgeous one that sat off of the road a bit with a long curvy driveway. As we were approaching it, I was secretly hoping that THAT was the house we were going to LOL. It was stunning! There was a huge white barn and lots of round hay bales in the yard all ready for photographing. Ideas were already flowing through my mind.
Three hours and 600 photos later…. I ended up with some really amazing shots. I’m so glad that Dana had some ideas of her own because it really showed their personalities and it made the session unique to them.
Curt and Dana will be getting married in December and I cannot wait. I’m not in any hurry for winter weather though, so that can hold off a bit LOL. Enjoy looking at all of my favorites from their beautiful engagement session. I truly cannot wait to show them off to you all.
Dana asked if it would be possible to shoot in the hay loft…. and I said OF COURSE! I’m glad we did because look at that amazing light coming through the cracks! EEKKK love them all!
I love me a good quilt. This quilt is Dana’s grandmother’s and it was absolutely perfect for the session.
One of my absolute FAVS right here! So soft and beautiful.
That ring is GORG! Seriously!
If you love cows… then these next few are for you!
Such a beautiful farm. I love the golden light we had.
Getting a little TOO close LOL.
