You’re in for a treat today! This engagement session at Castlewood State Park near St. Louis is going down in the record books as one of our favorites! Even though we did run out of light at the end. 😉 We love any session that involves a little bit of adventure and hiking, and when you add an adorable couple with a cute Aussie dog named Maverick, you know you’re in for some good times!
Back in May, Grant and I decided to offer some giveaways to bring happiness during quarantine life. John and Danielle were the winners of the free session giveaway! They weren’t engaged at the time, but that all changed on a trip to Telluride, Colorado. There, on top of a 13,000 ft. mountain peak with majestic views, he proposed to Danielle and she said YES! Can someone say #proposalgoals? 😀 John also managed to get the whole proposal on video with his GoPro and then afterwards got some incredible advanced selfies! This is the first time we’ve met another couple who loves hiking and doing advanced selfies. We aren’t the only ones! 🙂
John and Danielle first met while in school in St. Louis. She was pursuing healthcare with the plans of becoming a doctor and he was pursuing dentistry. They hit it off and have been enjoying life ever since which has meant lots of adventures together! We get to meet some of the coolest, smartest and most fun couples ever!! We love it! 🙂
John and Danielle, we are so happy we got to meet you two!! You were so much fun and seriously a dream to photograph! Castlewood proved to be a great spot for your engagement session, so we hope you love these photos and we hope to hang out with you all again sometime! 🙂
