Kate, Steve, and a dodged rainstorm

Even though the radar had dark green and orange filling the area, we trekked on to Washington, Mo., to meet Kate and Steve. Amidst the threatening rain, we drove down the winding roads to the vineyards nestled in the quaint Missouri town, and much to our dismay, it started to pour before we reached our destination. Kate and I talked on the phone several times, wondering if this shoot was really going to happen, but as we pulled into the parking lot along the river road, the last drop of rain fell, the clouds parted, and the sun actually peeked out. Oh, and a damp, humid fog covered the area like a blanket. Lovely Missouri weather indeed.

Because Kate is out of the St. Louis area for grad school, we decided to meet in Washington, Mo. for their engagement shoot, and because finding a time to meet was a small miracle, we WERE going to make this shoot happen, rain or shine. And luckily, it was a lot more shine than rain once we got started. See?

I think they are just the cutest! Can't wait for their wedding in a few weeks!

And of course, as luck would have it, once the shoot ended and we hit the road, the skies unleashed their furry once again and lightening surrounded us all the back to St. Louis :). See you soon, Kate and Steve!
