2014 : Engagement Photography • Columbia Missouri Based Wedding Photographer

First, a big congratulations to all those sweet newly engaged couples out there after the Holidays! It’s such a wonderful time of the year to celebrate love and we can’t wait to hear from so many of you as the wedding planning begins!

Now let’s take a look back at Engagement Photography from 2014! Engagement sessions are the perfect way to not only get to know you as a couple, but it also allows us to get out all that nervous energy in front of the camera BEFORE your wedding day! For us, getting to know each couple we photograph is one of the best ways to guarantee meaningful, timeless images on such a special day in your life together! Enjoy a few favorites from these past 365 days and see you in 2015 with some exciting announcements!
