What to wear? Which location? What season?

A lot of planning goes into an engagement session, and many emails back & forth. And then, suddenly the day is upon us. Our couples usually show up at least slightly nervous, but excited! I could see both feelings represented in Erika & Matt as we met them in Forest Park. We don’t usually start an engagement session with a lot of “posed” photos since I think it seems to immediately put a Couple on the spot. Instead, we work to capture them more as they are in everyday life.
This turned out to be easy to do with Erika & Matt, they brought their doggie Macaroon for the first stage of our session. As they walked and played with Macaroon in the park, the moments seemed very candid and intimate.

Afterward, we set off for more stylized locations to match the vintage theme of their wedding, with romantic shared moments in a classically beautiful part of St. louis. I can’t wait to see all of their plans come together next year with their Wedding at The Chase Park Plaza.

xoxo Amanda & Dustin

How Matt Proposed: 
 
At the beginning of 2013, Matt had decided that he was going to propose this year. He asked Erika’s parents over after finding the perfect ring. Then on June 21, at the St. Louis Butterfly House in Chesterfield the proposal took place. This had been a date spot for us when we first started dating in 2007. Matt had rented the back garden patio and had his sister drop Erika off on their way back from Kansas. He was playing Erika’s favorite Celine Dion song, “I’m Alive,” while waiting for her with flowers and THE RING! He got down on one knee and the rest is history! 🙂 One of the happiest moments of our lives.

A funny/cute story about you two:
 
Where to start? There are so many…here are two of our favorites.
 
When we first started dating, one of our favorite things to do was sit on the hood of Matt’s car, listen to Delilah (yes, Delilah), and look up at the stars. It sounds silly, but there were so many songs she played in that first year that would define our relationship later on. With the long distance and always being apart, we were able to find something that would always hold us together!
 
When I first moved into my house in Arkansas last July it was completely empty because my furniture was not coming for two weeks. Erika came to visit the first weekend I was there after the Fourth of July and that night we sat on the floor in my family room, had a glass of wine, and danced in the empty space. I will never forget this weekend because that night we were in an empty house with nothing and someday we will have our own house, filled with our things, and remember that as a night our adult lives began.Romantic Vintage St Louis Wedding Photography | For The Moment Photography Romantic Vintage St Louis Wedding Photography | For The Moment Photography Romantic Vintage St Louis Wedding Photography | For The Moment Photography Romantic Vintage St Louis Wedding Photography | For The Moment Photography Romantic Vintage St Louis Wedding Photography | For The Moment Photography Romantic Vintage St Louis Wedding Photography | For The Moment Photography

Jordan & Kayla, one of the sweetest couples I’ve met! They fit like two puzzle pieces . . . from a puzzle that only has two pieces . . . obviously, they just go together.

We are really looking forward to their wedding next summer at Neo On Locust.

soulard st louis wedding photographer

How he propose:

Kayla : “Jordan knows that it’s very difficult to keep a secret from me. He gets so excited and winds up telling me the surprise before it happens, but not this time. Valentines Day was a perfect cover up. He told me we had dinner reservations at The Boat House in Forest Park. We were on our way there, when he mentioned that it would be romantic if we stopped in front of Art Hill and walked down in front of The Grand Basin.  We walked down to the edge of the fountains and there were candles all lit up in a row. He got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. I said yes! He had my two best friends hiding in the bushes taking pictures of the whole thing. All of our family and friends were waiting for us at The Dubliner where we had our 1st date. It was the most romantic gesture I could have asked for!”soulard st louis wedding photographer soulard st louis wedding photographer soulard st louis wedding photographer forest_park_st_louis_wedding_photography-1002

How did you know he was the one?

Kayla : ” We would stay up for hours talking and it would seem like no time had even passed. It was like we had known each other for years when we had only just met. I had never been treated so well in my life and I knew I never wanted to let that go. I had the “ah-ha” moment, the moment it all just clicks and makes sense. He truly is the love of my life.”

How did you know she was the one?
Jordan: “Kayla’s amazing personality, sense of humor, intelligence, and beauty all made me believe early on that she could be the one.  However, what made me KNOW that she was the one was her consistent selflessness and her uncanny ability to be the balance in my life that I was always looking for.  She truly is my soulmate, and I would be lost without her.”

Surprise Proposal | Lafayette Park

St Louis Wedding Photographers

~

Trey and Rochelle.
A surprise proposal carries with it an unsurprising degree of apprehension. Trey, composed and thoughtful, had planned multiple phases of this day, he had shown attention to detail in noting Rochelle’s appreciation for candid pictures of other’s engagements.
So he stood out of view from the appointed walkway, shifting his feet slightly, glancing toward his similarly hidden friends and family, and occasionally checking to make sure the jewelers box in his pocket had not suddenly evaporated.
Rochelle walked through the park, unaware of all of these details, but on catching sight of Trey and with just moments of whispered confidences, she understood.stl wedding photography www.forthemomentphoto.com stl wedding photography www.forthemomentphoto.com stl wedding photography www.forthemomentphoto.com stl wedding photography www.forthemomentphoto.comstl wedding photography www.forthemomentphoto.comstl wedding photography www.forthemomentphoto.com stl wedding photography www.forthemomentphoto.com stl wedding photography www.forthemomentphoto.com stl wedding photography www.forthemomentphoto.com stl wedding photography www.forthemomentphoto.com stl wedding photography www.forthemomentphoto.com stl wedding photography www.forthemomentphoto.com stl wedding photography www.forthemomentphoto.comstl wedding photography www.forthemomentphoto.comstl wedding photography www.forthemomentphoto.com stl wedding photography www.forthemomentphoto.com

For the second half of Molly & Justin’s destination engagement session, we traveled back to the very spot he proposed : Forsyth Park, Savannah GA. Large Oak Trees adorned with Spanish Moss created an amazingly romantic location for the proposal and for this engagement session.

View the first half of their engagement session in Hilton Head, SC here.

destination savannah engagement photos

How did He propose?

Justin : Originally, Molly thought she was going to suprise me 
with a visit. But when I got wind of it, I decided I would 
completely surprise her with a proposal. It worked very well despite 
it raining all day. It stopped just long enough for the sun to come 
out, with the Spanish moss hanging and blowing gently in the breeze, 
I asked her if she loved the memories we had made so far and then 
asked if she would like to make one more and proposed.destination savannah engagement photos

savannah_georgia_engagement_wedding_photos-1004

How did you know he/she was the one?

Justin : We saw each other in the good times and the not so good. 
Through it all our love for each other never swerved in the 
least bit.
Molly : I have heard from many of my married friends when you 
meet the right person, you just know... from the first slow dance at 
that weekends wedding reception, well.. I just knew he was it.

Thanks to Molly & Justin for a wonderful time in Hilton Head, SC & Savannah, GA! We can’t wait for your wedding here in St Louis this November!

We were so excited to travel down to Hilton Head Island, SC to take Molly & Justin’s Engagement Photos. Molly is from St. Louis and Justin is from Georgia. Since they are having their wedding in St Louis we all wanted to document their engagement from a more southerly perspective.

As the sun was setting over The Sea Pines Resort in Harbor Town and the romantic evening came to a close, all we could have asked for were a few more hours, or maybe even days at this gorgeous location.

And now for a few fun anecdotes about Molly & Justin.

How did you meet?

Molly : We met at the rehearsal dinner for my cousin's wedding 
in Colorado. It could not have been a more picturesque setting.

What She LOVES about Him:

Molly : I love Justin's laugh, when he laughs you 
just have to laugh with him because it's so infectious. I remember 
shortly before meeting him I heard him laugh really hard & I thought to 
myself I want to make him laugh that hard too... 
Now I have the pleasure of doing it all the time.destination wedding photographer hilton head island sc engagement photos

What He LOVES about Her:

Justin : She stuck with me and supported me through thick and 
thin like only a true friend and mate would do.destination wedding photographer hilton head island sc engagement photos

A funny and sweet story about these two love birds :

Molly : A couple of days after we had met I invited Justin to go 
to lunch with my mom & I. We had some miscommunication & he wasn't 
able to make it. I was very disappointed but mom & I headed off to 
lunch anyway. As we finished our meal & started to leave, I noticed 
this very attractive blonde guy standing by the door...it was Justin 
he knew we had gone to Mexican & wanted to come find us! So we turned 
back around & had lunch again. It was the best meal I've had (twice) in my life! destination wedding photographer hilton head island sc engagement photos

For Courtney & Ian we happily scheduled two engagement sessions. A lovely fall engagement session at Shaw Nature Reserve, which you can view HERE , and a spring engagement session at Tower Grove Park. The location was swarmed by bridal parties and prom groups also looking to capitalize on the beautiful blooms, but we found a way to work around it all.

We had a great time wandering a beautiful park, enjoying the great weather but we finished on a real high note by ending our session at Ted Drewes. 🙂
