Alexis and Bennett : Columbia Missouri Engagement Session • Central Missouri Based Destination Wedding Photographer

Alexis and Bennett met us last week for their Columbia Missouri Engagement Session at Finger Lakes Park! Although it was a rainy day, we were able to capture some of the sweetest moments between this beautiful pair. And towards the end of their session we decided to have a little fun lighting the rain! Absolutely thrilled to be photographing their back yard wedding this September, only 5 more months to go!

If you are interested in scheduling your beautiful engagements with Catherine Rhodes Photography, please email us today as dates this Spring are very limited.
