Elizabeth and James : A Snowy Engagement Session • Central Missouri Based Destination Wedding Photographer


What a perfect way to start the year than with this amazing engagement session with Elizabeth and James! I met this adorable couple out at Elizabeth’s parent’s house, in the snow, to take advantage of the first non-negative degree weather we had last week. The sun was out and the snow was beautiful. On top of it all we had a true vintage truck to add to the mix which made for some cozy images!

Congratulations Elizabeth and James, I’m so excited to capture all the sweet moments that will unfold during your backyard wedding this Spring!
