Downtown St. Louis Engagement | Carly + Adam

DOWNTOWN ST. LOUIS ENGAGEMENT | CARLY + ADAM

Carly and Adam’s downtown St. Louis engagement session was freezing cold with sharp winds, but you’d never know it based on their smiles! This couple’s story is St. Louisian through-and-through: they had their first date at Cunetto’s On The Hill, we captured their engagement photos downtown at the Peabody office building (scroll down to see how we incorporated the Arch from a distance!), and their October 28th ceremony will take place at the Old Cathedral. It was a joy to capture their engagement session, and I can’t wait for their wedding! Congratulations, Carly and Adam!

During this whole session, we played games and I drilled Carly and Adam with silly questions to get them to be more at ease – things like, “Quick! If Carly was an animal, what would she be?!” About halfway through this session, Adam turned to me and said, “I get it now. I was wondering how you got the guys to do what they do without looking cheesy, it make sense now!” It was one of the best compliments I’ve ever received as a photographer!

The construction going on at the Arch last winter prevented us from getting up close for the photos under the Arch that Carly and Adam wanted, but by getting creative with some reflections and angles, we captured them standing under the Arch all the same – from blocks away!

Can you imagine how cold it must have been to sit on those steps in a skirt and tights? Carly is such a trooper!
