Initially Meg and Rusty wanted to go to a different location for their portraits. I won’t say where it was, but it was a spot I’ve grown tired of shooting over the past few months. So I tried to talk them into doing a more urban shoot and driving around town with me to find all the cool run down buildings in St. Louis. Fortunately for me, they went for it, and the photos turned out awesome. They climbed on all kinds of weird stuff (including a dresser someone was throwing away…) and waded through crazy weed patches for me, it was great. At one point we were all so covered with these stick weeds it looked like fringe. They couldn’t have had a better sense of adventure about the whole thing, and I think it paid off.
You’ll see these two on the blog again very soon – they are getting married this Sunday! They really pushed their engagements to the last minute, but I’m glad they decided to do it. Based on this session, the wedding this weekend should be a blast!
