Lauren & Chris had a dream wedding. The prettiest church, the perfect crisp fall weather – it was incredible and oh-so-classic. Every detail seemed to fit perfectly, from the pale pink bridesmaids dresses to the white rose and hydrangea bouquets. I loved everything about this wedding! My favorite detail was the little lockets they filled with photographs of their grandfathers that had passed away. The grandmothers carried these lockets on their bouquets on the wedding day – such a sweet way to honor their loved ones. It was such a fun day filled with family and friends – Congrats to Lauren & Chris!
Saint Louis Wedding Photography: Lisa Dolan Photography
Hannah and Daniel are two of the sweetest, most adorable people you will ever meet, and I’m super lucky because I get to photograph them twice! Their Saint Louis Engagement session was filled with the perfect late summer sunset at the Grand Basin. We chose this location in Forest Park because of the lighting and the soft touch of the fountains at sunset. Sunset is always one of my favorite times to shoot because it gives such a soft golden glow to the images and really makes the colors pop.
Hannah and Daniel’s “official” engagement session is in just a few short weeks, but they were kind enough to model for me at a recent film photographer meet up in Forest Park. I love getting together with other local photographers and sharing our love of film photography. Shooting film is so important to me because I feel like it has a certain timelessness that digital just doesn’t have. Shooting film forces you to slow down and really focus on what you’re shooting. It’s a true art form. Plus it’s always fun to meet new friends! We wrapped up our meetup with dinner here (their guacamole is my favorite!) and had a few margaritas – can’t wait until next time!
Thanks Hannah and Daniel for being such lovely models – I’m so excited to be photographing your wedding this April!
How incredible is that early fall sunset in Forest Park? Those colors are to die for!
