Happy Sunday!!

If you’re in the Greater St. Louis area this weekend, we hope that you can get outside to take advantage of slightly warmer weather. #OptOutside and hike!

Thats what Hannah is probably doing. In heels. Because she doesn’t mess around. And who knew? For their engagement session, she tackled the bluff trails of Pete Marquette in Grafton, IL like a seasoned hiker. On a cold, super windy day!

Ryan and Hannah met in a not-so-unique way these days. (Well, unless you’re talking to past generations.) This awesome couple met on Tinder. By accident. How does that happen, you ask? Well, Ryan was out to dinner and drinks with his boss and coworkers, and downloaded Tinder to show his boss how it worked. He swiped right on Hannah as he explained. Near the same time, Hannah and a friend were drinking wine and being goofy on Tinder, but fate intervened.

It took several weeks of talking before they became comfortable enough to meet, and Ryan was lucky enough to be the first guy ever to pick her up for a date at her house. After Ryan drove an hour to pick her up, they drove another hour together for Olive Garden, because they say they’re both “fatties and love pasta”!

Ryan proposed on a boat at Lake of the Ozarks. We still aren’t sure whether he cried because he’s a crier, or because shocked Hannah took a while to say ‘yes’.

This beautiful couple is already a little family with two dogs and two children. There’s never a dull moment either, because Ryan and Hannah are absolutely HILARIOUS. Ryan had us rolling the entire session. Their personalities are a match made in heaven, and we don’t expect they’ll EVER get bored of each other’s cheesy jokes.

Ryan and Hannah, we cant WAIT for your big day in 2019!! Congratulations from the bottom of our hearts!!

Much Love,

Tiffany & Chris // Amber Mark Photography

Nick & Miranda, high school sweethearts tying the knot in 2018!

Hey guys! 

Hope you're having a stellar week. We just wanted to give you a break from your busyness to introduce you to the wonderful Nick and Miranda!!

Help us congratulate them on their recent engagement!! CONGRATULATIONS!!

These two lovebirds are getting married in October 2018 in a St. Louis-themed wedding!! What more could you want!? They trekked over to St. Louis from Kansas City, Missouri so we could capture their love in beautiful Downtown St. Louis! 

And they did just that. 

There were a couple hiccups at City Garden with pink tape everywhere due to the grass just being sprayed, but we still got some really great shots! 

Construction at the St. Louis Arch Grounds was no match for this radiant couple. 

... and what's more romantic than a photographer photographing the Bride-To-Be and her Groom in the middle of a busy Market Street in Downtown St. Louis??

I must also mention their ambition ... Miranda has a background in event planning, and shared with us her future goal to become a wedding planner. She definitely has a lot going for her! Girl is on top of it! :) Her vision and motivation is very admirable. And she's got a really great man by her side all the way. Their dream is to one day own a small business wedding venue to serve people with a valuable wedding experience! 

Oh, back to their pictures ... 

We couldn't hold back sharing these beautiful moments at the Riverfront in Downtown St. Louis with the Eads Bridge stretching across the Mississippi River in the background. Can you feel the emotion between Nick and Miranda? We sure can! Wow!

BUT ... their St. Louis themed engagement session (and wedding) wouldn't be complete without some red at Busch Stadium in Cardinal Nation!!

We'd like to give Nick and Miranda a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS on their engagement!!! We are super happy for you and are so excited for your big day!!! See you soon!
