You might recognize this couple from my last post featuring their beautiful engagement ceremony and reception at the Marriott St. Louis Airport hotel. We planned on driving to St. Charles after the ceremony to shoot engagement portraits but the event ran late and we had to stay at the hotel to maximize our time for portraits. We didn’t get the same “look” as the photos I had envisioned shooting on Main St. and along the river in St. Charles, but I love these just the same. With careful and creative composition I told Maryanne and Jonathan I could make it appear as if we were somewhere other than a hotel courtyard. And except for a few wide shots where I purposely include more of the surroundings (I had to sneak a little of that art deco architecture into the mix), you’d never know we were shooting around a hotel pool. I also really love the color in this set of images. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
