Danielle and Will live in Columbia, MO but we decided to meet to take their pictures in Jefferson City, MO! I have to admit, I was a little nervous about scheduling a two hour session outdoors in the middle of January, but we were INCREDIBLY blessed with beautiful weather! The week before we had an ice storm, but the day of our session was in the 60’s. These two were an absolute blast to photograph. Danielle has a killer smile and Will was our comic relief. I love when I get to meet super nice, down-to-earth couples that like to laugh and have fun and make my job so easy!
We started out our session in front of the Supreme Court building. I work in the governor’s building just around the corner and I kept seeing those big, beautiful doors when I would take walks. I knew they would be a beautiful backdrop, and these guys rocked it!
I had been wanting to do a “lift” picture for quite some time. I asked Will if he was up for trying it out and he was totally on board! It took us a couple tries, but they NAILED IT! I absolutely love that shot. I would say they are pros now and I can’t wait to try this shot in her wedding gown!
Next, we headed over to the Governor’s Garden behind the Governor’s mansion. It was prom that night, so the place was crawling with teenagers, but we managed to sneak in a few!
I was so excited that Will brought a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles T-shirt that they wanted to incorporate into the shoot. We ended the session downtown Jefferson City in their casual outfit just goofing around and having some fun. I love the photos of them running around the lamp pole. They both have great smiles!
