On a scorching St. Louis summer evening, Cassie and Justin meet me atop Art Hill in Forest Park for their engagement session. We trekked around the Grand Basin and Jewel Box areas for their fun and adorable Forest Park Engagement Session. An engagement session is the perfect time to practice posing and to have a more relaxed and less stressed experience in front of the camera. Cassie and Justin were very prepared to have a fun evening with me.

      I have known the Baumbach family for quite some time. I used to work with Cassie’s mother and also photographed the wedding of Cassie’s older sister, Alyssa. Getting to continually work with families throughout the years is such a pleasure. It is great to see how families grow together. I am looking very forward to documenting Cassie and Justin’s big day next Spring!

      We loved the movement in this huge willow tree, so I decided to create a GIF from several images.

      Wishing you both the best as you prepare for your wedding day. Be on the lookout for a follow up post celebrating their Spring 2020 wedding.

      Cheers to the great that awaits!
