Brit is one of those brides who really, really understands weddings. I mean, she’s on the cutting edge of trends in every genre, she loves all the details, and she has some really brilliant ideas. When we first met, I could tell right away that she was going to be a dream to work with and would no doubt have an incredible wedding. And then I found her blog. Known to her readers as the Landlocked Bride, Brit regularly provides excellent inspiration and ideas for brides-to-be. Her blog has a wealth of information for all things wedding, and I read it quite regularly :). You should check her out. No really, check it out. Now. Go. You’ll be inspired fo sho.
And not too long ago, Brit also became a featured blogger on WeddingBee.com. If you’ve not checked out this site before, you absolutely must. It’s a great resource for brides, as well as a place to be inspired and glean wisdom from recent brides. Brit is known on the Bee as Miss Argyle, and in typical Brit fashion, she’s fabulous :).
If their engagement photos are any indication of the loveliness that will be their wedding day, I think we’re all in for a treat:).
We started the day off underneath a blanket of clouds in downtown St. Charles. The weatherman promised the clouds would break, but it wasn’t looking likely. Luckily, Brit’s dog Katie didn’t seem to mind
Brit told me that saying “Christmas Tree” would perk Katie right up. She was right :).
After a quick outfit change, we headed over to Creve Coeur Park. And as we drove, it looked like the weatherman might know what he was talking about…
And then the golden sun peeked out from behind the clouds, just in the nick of time.
How fabulous are these balloons? I love when clients take initiative and incorporate beautiful, meaningful, or downright fun things into their session.
Gorgeous soft light+a beautiful couple+love=this lovely
How cute is Brit’s ruffled blouse? I love love love it. In fact, I became a bit obsessed with getting one for myself shortly after this shoot. Every time I was at the Galleria, I’d stop by J. Crew, but they were ALWAYS out of my size or color. I still pop in the store, hoping hoping hoping they will have just one left.. just for me. Brit and Brady, I can’t wait to see what you cook up for your wedding :).
As always, more on facebook.
