Down by the water, that’s where you can find Lindsay and Aj spending most of their warm weathered weekends. When Lindsay inquired about booking her wedding with me in May I was so excited. Aj’s brother gets married this November and I am also capturing their special day. Working with his brother and soon-to-be sister-in-law has been such a pleasure so I knew I would love getting to capture Lindsay and Aj’s wedding day too! We discussed different options for their engagement session when I mentioned “It doesn’t have to be the traditional engagement photos that you typically see. It’s about you two, tieing the knot, so you can always do something that expresses you both perfectly. What do you love to do together most as a couple?” Easy answer, “the river.”

Last Friday I made my way to the Meramec Marina to meet Lindsay and Aj. We snapped a few photos at their number one hangout spot and then grabbed the cooler, hopped in the boat, and headed to their favorite beach area. When we arrived the sun was just setting and the weather was perfect. We popped champagne, played in the water and watched the sun go down. The night couldn’t have been any more perfect.
