Rick + Katie

A Downtown St. Louis Engagement Session | St. Louis, MO | St. Louis Engagement Photographer | Sparrow & Gold Photography

Some things align; they align in a beautiful way & when the pieces start to make their way together, we work with them to create the connections in our lives & I could not think of a more amazing way to describe Rick + Katie's story & my piece in their wonderful puzzle!

Let's start with how they found me! Katie & I used to work together as lifeguards (what seems like forever ago!) when I was in high school & as soon as we met, we became friends. Katie is lovely, full of laughter & love, & truly one of the most genuine people you will ever meet - she lights up any room she walks into, so when they announced their engagement, I was overflowing with joy for them & shortly after congratulating them, I received a text that they wanted me to capture their big day! I was over the moon!

When I met with Rick + Katie for our initial meeting to begin the process, I could instantly sense the love that was so apparent between the two of them. Rick was just as kind & open-hearted as Katie that they just fit with each other! Rick spoke about how small the world is that the two of them grew up in the same town together & he would pass Katie's neighborhood pool each day which makes me think that they were just destined to meet!

Our adventures in St. Louis for their engagement session were nothing but full of laughs & filled with fun & I cannot wait to capture their big day in July of 2017!
