Forest Park Engagement Session | Zach + Ashley

FILED IN: engagement

   There are some people who you just know will be kindred spirits from the minute you meet them. Ashley was like that for me! From the moment I met her at a bridal show this past January, I knew she was my type of person. Maybe it was our matching glasses or our love affair with craft shows and vintage markets or our shared affinity for hues of blue…whatever it was, I’m so glad we found each other and I am thrilled to be able to document her love story with Zach!

   For their engagement photos, we met at Forest Park, a place that holds much significance in their relationship! We took photos at the Boathouse, where they had their first date, and at the World’s Fair Pavilion, where Zach asked her to marry him. I love being able to return to places that hold special meaning for my clients. It changes the atmosphere of the session and allows them to reminisce over all the moments that brought them to this one. 

It was a gorgeous evening for a session with this darling couple, and their adorable pup, Gunner,  just made it all the better! This little guy is totally their furbaby and Zach dotes on him like any wonderful father would! 😉

   And can we talk about his fab bowtie for a minute? Gunner is adorable AND stylish!

The sun at the top of the World’s Fair Pavilion at Forest Park…Stunning!

   After we left the park, we hopped over to the Central West End to take a few night photos. These two were troopers, letting me play and experiment with a few things! 

   Ashley + Zach, it is such a joy to be a part of your story and I cannot wait until your wedding next fall!
