summer engagements | columbia, mo
I loved photographing this amazing couple along the Katy Trail in Columbia, Missouri! I went to scout out a location for Ellen and Ryan before their session and I immediately knew this spot would be perfect. The lush greens, the amazing pathway with the over arching tress, it was just beautiful. Ellen asked if she could bring champagne to their shoot and I loved that idea so much! So fun and classy.
And can we talk about their fashion? I loved both outfits! I send a Pinterest board to every client before a session to recommend clothing styles, colors, and patterns that photograph well. I didn't have anything quite like Ellen's blue dress on my board because I have never seen a print quite like it! She ran it by me before the session and I was so excited to see that she'd chosen such an amazing dress for herself. The beautiful floral design photographed like a painting and it is an amazing example of how to pull off a statement print in photographs! If you need some wardrobe inspiration for your summer engagement photos, I highly recommend taking some inspiration from Ellen & Ryan.
