Ella and Thomas were looking for a photographer for their 2022 wedding. Ella’s friend has selected us for her wedding which is also in 2022. Sometimes planning becomes a bit easier when you have a friend also planning a wedding. Especially because Ella is currently living out of town and her friend is in St. Louis. After hearing about our studio Ella contacted us to talk about the package options available to her and Thomas. We had one that fit perfectly and now we are excited to be a part of their wedding in June. However, we first needed to get some engagement photos taken. With Ella and Thomas living out of town, as well as, a very tight schedule for Thomas to come to St. Louis, we had limited choices on the dates we could do the engagement photos. The first day we picked while they were in town had rain all day so we moved the appointment to the next day, it was supposed to be cold but no rain so it worked out to fit in the photos before they left town again. Honestly, it was colder than we thought it would be, not awful in the sun but the shade with the breeze was pretty chilly. I was able to capture some sweet photos of Thomas warming up Ella or wiping away a hair that blew in her face. We talked about so many things as we walked around taking photos, we did spend a lot of time talking about skiing in Colorado and Columbia, perhaps we should have talked more about warm locations to make us think it was warm outside! Ella and Thomas met in school and have enjoyed traveling together when they are able to fit it into their busy schedule. We really hope they have the time to travel after the wedding, they will deserve a break. Planning a wedding from out of town can be very time consuming. We are happy the selected us to be a part of their memories. I really hope they were able to get some warm coffee or something after the session because by the end Ella had red hands since it was so cold outside. But in the pictures you wouldn’t be able to see the cold, just the love and happiness these two have for each other.   #ravettaphotography #stlouisphotographer #stlphotos #engagementsession
