This Kauffman Center Engagement Session will make you cry, then smile, then wonder who the hell gave these gals the permission to be so cute.

Jamie & Mel reached out to me after finding me on the ‘gram. (Take that, algorithm!) They filled out their couple questionnaire so thoroughly and I can’t even tell you how happy that made my heart. Jamie is all things musical and whimsical while Mel is so analytical and I absolutely love it. The Kauffman Center made perfect sense for their engagement session.

Their session was full of laughter and love and by the end of it, it barely mattered that right before the session Jamie lost all of her cards. The original plan was to head to Up-Down. The whole world loves a good arcade, but when you have no personal IDand look like a precious teenager.. the world has other plans.

We started at Rockhill Grille where these two had their first date. They ordered their favorite cocktail, shared it, and then we headed off to the Kauffman Center. There, we executed a delightful dip-kiss. Finally, we headed to Up-Down only to remember the carding situation. Instead, we walked all around the crossroads. We even ended up in the spot they had their first kiss!

Unknowingly, we had basically taken a tour of the beginning of their relationship and I was honored to be a part of it. It’s rare and super exciting when you photograph a couple that’s so into each other that you barely have to pose. They naturally fall into each other and can’t help but nuzzle and cuddle. That was exactly Jamie and Mel. It was an honor to photograph their engagement session and I am so glad to have made some new friends along the way.

Here’s to hoping wedding planning goes smoothly and that our paths cross again soon!

L’chaim!

Kauffman Center Engagement Session – Jamie + Mel

When you meet couples who want to hire you, the more enthusiastic, the better you feel. So this same-sex West Bottoms engagement session? I’ve peaked. Destiny reached out to me at the end of 2019. Life happened. Nothing came of it. Lindsey reached out a few months later. Told me her fiancee, Destiny, wanted to […]

This post has been brewing and brewing simply because I did not want to jump the gun. My weddings that were all set to occur in the past few months involved me speaking individually to the couples affected. Like much of the midwest, “wedding season” when not counting these summer months, is in the fall. […]

Anyone else feel their ability to “person” correctly dissipate during all of this? I was a blogging fool once upon a time if you can believe it. Now, I’m trying to remember which of my perfect couples I haven’t graced the blog with yet. I immediately stumbled upon Hayley & Bryce. Just waiting in my […]

There’s a pandemic. We all can acknowledge that and move on. Moreover, we all realize the way that it’s changed our day-to-day life and the wedding industry as we know it. Madelyn and Quincy knew they wanted to get married on their 4-year dating anniversary. Luck would have it that in 2020 it was a […]
