I’ll be quite honest…when we moved back to Saint Louis, after 7 years in Brooklyn, I figured I’d have to give up my love of photographing couples in urban environments for all green, grassy fields. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE intimate backyard weddings more than anything. But I crave the energy and style of city life. I wasn’t sure if I could entice couples to come wander around downtown STL and trust me to photograph them on top of parking garages. Turns out all I needed was the right couple.
Meet Erika+Tim and Tim’s beautiful [and absolutely hilarious] daughter, Anne. These are the real life three amigos. We started the session capturing sweet family photos by the Saint Louis Art Museum in Forest Park. After a quick snack and wine refuel at Taste, and quick costume change, we ended the session on top of my favorite parking garage. And as Erika perfectly described, her dress for this shoot was on fleek. Which my out-of-touch self had to google but now I can’t agree more.
