Christmas Engagement Session   Amanda & Kayla’s winter engagement session in St. Louis was one fun evening full of ice cream, playing in leaves, and Christmas lights (with a bonus t-rex)!

Their Story–February 16, 2019 The day before Lauren & Matt’s wedding at Wild Carrot, St. Louis received a few inches of snow, but before they were even married the next evening it was gone!
