While visiting my hometown of St. Louis last month I had the pleasure of shooting Katy & Tim's engagement session. I returned home to be with my best friend during the birth of her twins, and Katy was also conveniently in town visiting Tim (she currently lives and works in the Grenadines- an island chain in the Caribbean!)
Despite the nearly sub-zero weather, we all had a lot of fun shooting at Forest Park St. Louis. (For you North Carolina readers who are unfamiliar with the Midwest: Forest Park is St. Louis's biggest park and home to some amazing attractions that I frequented in my childhood- the Saint Louis Zoo and the Saint Louis Art Museum topping my list. Surprisingly, it is larger than Central Park in Manhattan!) We spent most of our time on Art Hill and also shot some fun photos on the wooded running trail along Skinker Road (which is where Katy and Tim had their first kiss!)
I had so much fun rediscovering this part of Forest Park and taking a break from shooting in the same old places in North Carolina. Katy & Tim are a naturally affectionate and effervescent couple, so they didn't need any direction from me, which always makes shooting fun. :)
Katy & Tim, thank you so much for hiring me to do your engagement photos. I had a lot of fun working with you and gallivanting throughout Forest Park in the cold. I hope you weren't too frozen after our shoot! :) I hope these photos capture your joyful spirits and love for one another!
