Dana+Markus: An Engagement Session at Lindenwood University/St. Charles, MO

Dana and Markus met, got engaged, and both work at Lindenwood University so it was a no brainer to start their engagement session off there. I had so much fun with them, just walking around the campus and getting to know them better. I cannot wait for their wedding next May! …Which she was so excited to book with me that her date has been booked for a few years now :) 2014-08-26_0001 2014-08-26_0002 2014-08-26_0003 2014-08-26_0004 2014-08-26_0005 2014-08-26_0006 2014-08-26_0007 2014-08-26_0008 2014-08-26_0009 2014-08-26_0010 2014-08-26_0011 2014-08-26_0012 2014-08-26_0013 2014-08-26_0014 2014-08-26_0015 2014-08-26_0016 2014-08-26_0017 2014-08-26_0018 2014-08-26_0019 2014-08-26_0020 2014-08-26_0021 2014-08-26_0022 2014-08-26_0023 2014-08-26_0024 2014-08-26_0025 2014-08-26_0026 2014-08-26_0027 2014-08-26_0028 2014-08-26_0029 2014-08-26_0030 2014-08-26_0031 2014-08-26_0032 2014-08-26_0033

Natalie + Connor: Engagement Session in Faust Park

I had so much fun with Natalie and Connor at their engagement session. I love getting to know my clients better and hanging out with them, photographing their engagement session is a great way to do so!

Their wedding is next Spring and I just can’t wait for it… It’s going to be at a beautiful farm with a petting zoo, bon fire, yard games… Way too much fun!

Meet Natalie and Connor!

The Edmonds Family in St. Charles

This family. This session. So near and dear to my heart. I feel a lot of weight and importance every time I photograph a family session and this one was no exception. Except the weight was much heavier. Dana, (the mom and my dear friend), was just diagnosed with stage III esophageal cancer and with that comes a lot of changes, surgeries, chemo, etc. Being allowed to capture this moment in time, just the four of them, before this crazy new life begins, meant more to me than anything thing I have ever photographed. She is about to start the fight of her life, but her faith is strong and she is ready. Friends, please join me in prayer for this family. It’s going to be a long and tough journey, but in the end, God will be glorified. I love you Dana, no one fights alone <3
