Saint Louis Wedding Photographer
Danielle & Jake’s 1920’s Themed Engagement Session
Oh my heavens, it’s always such an amazing feeling to have a vision and see it come to life and share it with my clients!!! Danielle Smith & Jake Conrad have been chatting with me for a few months now about their themed engagement session, we wanted to really have fun with their session and go non-traditional but still have it be THEM as a couple! Actually, as a St Louis Wedding Photographer, shooting themed engagement sessions is one of my absolute favorite aspects of my career!! Jake is a firefighter for Columbia, Illinois and the fire station there has a 1926 vintage firetruck in amazingly pristine condition, I was able to get a glimpse of this beautiful piece of machinery in the winter when we first discussed the idea. They even took me and my family for a ride (complete with lights and sirens) when we came to visit, talk about a major perk to my j-o-b! Once I was able to see this fire truck, my mind began racing and I researched the 1920’s era, everything from hair, makeup, accessories, clothing and more and we made a secret Pinterest board (a common thing with my clients) so that I could share my findings with my clients and help coach them in the direction of their clothing as they shop or pin etsy links for their accessories! I’m also able to see what they find because I add my clients as additional “pinners” to this secret board! So, with a plan set and clothing purchased.. we set a date. THEN, I thought “wait, a dalmatian!!” and what do you know, through the world of social media – I was able to find a wonderful woman who allowed me to use her gorgeous dog, Owen, in a few of our shots! I could literally go on and on about the fun that we had, how well Jake posed and got his James Bond on, and how Dani then got to take the firetruck for a spin down Main Street in Columbia – but instead I will just share these amazing images with you!! Enjoy!
