Michele & Tyler met me at Missouri Botanical Gardens for the first part of their engagement session and I was immediately taken with how much fun they have together. Subsequently, I also had a blast and I was able to capture some incredibly genuine moments of love between the two of them. It also helps that they are both so easy on the eyes….such a cute couple! Basically, they made my job pretty darn easy.
I asked Michele to send me the story of how they met and got engaged.
Here it is in her own words:
Our love story began in the Fall of 2009 at Mizzou, where we hit it off right away. Between the tailgates, bar nights, and time with friends our love for one another continued to grow. On times away from school we were both lucky to share a mutual hometown of St. Charles, MO.
After graduating from Mizzou, we landed jobs in St. Louis, MO. After a while (nearly 8 years) Tyler (finally) popped the question on June 30, 2017 in Forest Park. He surprised me with a beautifully photographed proposal, followed by a surprise dinner at Bricktop with both families. The surprises were not over yet, because we were off to Cancun for a week of celebrating to cap off their engagement.
Michele & Tyler I am so excited to capture your wedding day next year. I know it’s going to be a day full of laughter and joy!
