Another session from warmer days

Last April, my husband had the opportunity to lead a youth weekend for a church in St. Louis, and I decided to tag along. I volunteered as a small group discussion leader for high school girls, and we started the weekend out at Donna's beautiful home. I don't really remember what we all we talked about that first night in our small group discussion, but my oh my, Miss Donna made some amazingly sinful desserts that still bring a smile to my face even today. I think I ate about 5 brownies just while we getting to know each other. Ah, I miss those brownies.

Well, a few months later, Donna's son Justin got engaged, and what an honor it is to have the privilege of photographing their wedding! We met up around Thanksgiving at one of my favorite coffee shops, Park Avenue Coffee in Lafayette Square, to shoot Justin and Erin's engagement photos. These two were great to work with and I'm really looking forward to their wedding in June!

Take a look at those eyelashes!

The sunlight looked magical that day as it set, so you know I had to get me some sunflare!

This type of light is my favorite... It's so flattering and warm. To get this kind of light, it's best to schedule your photo session about 1.5 hours before sunset. Photographers often refer to this timespan as the golden hour, and it's pretty easy to see why.
