Garden engagement

The rain is taking over the midwest as we speak with winter transitioning into spring. With rain comes different scenes for engagement sessions, instead of outdoor we have to pick a good location semi covered due to rain. Meet Sarah and Ryan the next engagement couple taking over the blog! These two met in high school in Saint Charles, Missouri. They have been together for a few years before Ryan popped the question to Sarah. I met Sarah a few months ago when she was searching for a wedding photographer. We met at a super cute coffee shops and one of my personal favorites, Picassos Coffee. At the meeting I met Sarah and her mother. The meeting lasted over an hour. We were talking about everything! We discussed the wedding, the details and the engagement session. Sarah mentioned to me she wanted something super unique and something different. We scheduled a date and time but we took some time to collaborate on a location. After throwing around a few location ideas Sarah chose Missouri Botanical Gardens. I automatically said HECK YES! One because I haven't been there for pictures yet and who doesn't love beautiful flowers?! Once we had everything final I knew this engagement would be AMAZING! Well if you know Missouri you know the weather is all over the place, like one day it can be sunny and 70 degrees and later that day it could drop to a temp of 30 degrees. Missouri has some crazy weather. The day of Sarah and Ryan's engagement it was down pouring with rain, but luckily the Missouri Botanical Gardens is mostly indoor. We got lucky with the location choice. When we met at the location that was my first time meeting Ryan! Ryan and Sarah are super genuine and I could talk to them for hours. We started in the orchid room we walked around and looked at all the beautiful flowers. The smell of the fresh flowers in each room was remarkable! We spent about two hours for the engagement session. There was SO much to see at Missouri Botanical Gardens! I highly recommend this beautiful garden if you are looking to do something fun! In the middle of October these two will tie the knot! Congrats to Sarah and Ryan!
