I can still remember meeting these two for the first time. Alex and Allison, along with Alex’s family, showed up at one of my fall mini sessions and they were this quiet and shy couple who didn’t talk much. They are super cute and really photogenic and I loved every picture that I took of them. Just wait till you see how gorgeous Allison is! Seriously, this girl can’t take a bad picture! I remember the session went very well and a couple weeks later I heard from Terri, Alex’s mother, and she told me that Alex was going to be proposing soon (around the holidays) and that they were looking to see if I’d be interested in taking their wedding/engagement photos. So what started as just a mini session, led to me meeting a cute couple, who got engaged and now I’m going to be their wedding photographer! So cool how that happens. I only have God to thank for that.
Alex and Allison are getting married in November but Allison was pretty eager to get her engagement pictures taken. I think I’d be the same way if I was newly engaged LOL. The thing is, it’s winter and it’s really hard to schedule sessions and not know how the weather is going to hold up. As our luck would have it, it was a super nice day around 70 degrees. Who would have thought it would be this nice in February! It was so nice that we just walked around downtown Ste. Genevieve, MO for the beginning of their session. We could have walked around all day but we ended the session at Alex’s grandparent’s home in the country. It was where Alex grew up and I could tell instantly that he was more comfortable the minute he stepped out of the car. He was grinning from ear to ear and giving me ideas on where we could go. When a groom starts giving me photo location ideas, I knew he’s having a good time! By the time we hiked around the property, I ended up with some amazing shots with the golden glow that the winter sunset was giving us. Seriously, I could work with the light EVERY. SINGLE. DAY!
I’m so excited to show you my favorites from my time with these two. And I still can’t believe these photos were taken in winter 🙂
