Romantic engagement session Forest Park St. Louis

Katie and Danny are getting married in October at Pierre Marquette State Park. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding! Along with the outdoorsy theme of their wedding they chose Forest Park’s wooded areas for their engagement session.

They weren’t camera shy either! Take a look.Woodsy Forest Park engagement portraitsRomantic engagement session Forest Park St. LouisUrban woods engagement sessionSaint Louis engagement photographer

Favorite of the day by St. Louis wedding photographer Cate Jackson

Sometimes a couple is so in love that it just oozes out from them. These two are in that category. They were married at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis, MO in the Chinese Pavillion. The ceremony was intimate and full of emotion. It was one of my favorite weddings to date. They kept it low key and lovely. Here goes.faves14
