| Engagement Session | 2018 |

Ok guys, we know it’s the day after Christmas, and many are still focusing on family time, but we love our clients and wanted to take a few minutes to share Bradley and Maura’s engagement session 💕.

We shot the lovely Bradley and Maura’s engagement session at Tower Grove Park in St, Louis. If you know these two, then you are well aware of the countless reasons to love this couple. Most importantly, they’re dog lovers (✔️). Their laughter together is on call (✔️). They can also nail a twirl like Christina Yamaguchi on grass (✔️), and their recently proven track record of pre-engagement wedding planning secures the “Overachievers” title! (✔️)!!

When we first met Bradley and Maura, they were not engaged yet but had already been wedding planning. During planning, Maura’s mother, Linda, took her on a girl’s weekend to the Ozarks. Early the following morning, Maura’s father picked up Bradley right after his night shift and drove him to the Ozarks to catch the girls on a morning walk. From there, Bradley proposed, and the rest is history (in the making)!

A special “thank you” to Maura’s mother, Linda, for wrangling their two dogs during our session. Major kudos!

All in all, Bradley and Maura provided a great example of how a loving and playful marriage truly should be—and they’re not even there yet! We know they’ll be just fine as husband and wife!!

CONGRATULATIONS Brad and Maura!!!

With love,

Tiffany & Chris // Amber Mark Photography

Nick + Miranda | Lafayette Square Park + The Franklin Room Wedding St Louis, MO | 2018

Miranda ... I’m picturing you in a stunning white dress, wide smile, probably a few tears in your eyes, and quite a few in mine as well, and a heart full of love and happiness, as we make one final step towards becoming husband and wife.

Nick and Miranda —

Where to start! You’ve impacted us in so many ways, from your smiles and laughs to your ambition and positivity. It’s so contagious.

We LOVE Nick and Miranda’s spirit. We love their hearts. We love surrounding ourselves with amazing people like these two. OH! And we LOVE that they’re high school sweethearts!! A match made in heaven, indeed. 💕

And just in case you were wondering, yes … we each fought back tears more than once (naturally). For Chris, they came early in the day while Nick, alone, read a letter written by his soon-to-be wife, Miranda. And then again when Miranda read Nick’s letter aloud. The sheer passion and raw love these two share is to die for. We totally fell in love with this couple!!

Nick and Miranda chose a beautiful outdoor ceremony at Lafayette Square Park, followed by a charming reception at The Franklin Room. As you walk into this vintage ballroom, you’re greeted with 30-foot ceilings, 10-foot windows, and beautiful original maple wood floods. Built in 1905, The Franklin Room has stood the test of time in one of St. Louis’s oldest neighborhoods.

It’s so cliche, but we absolutely loved meeting Nick and Miranda and being a part of their special day. (Readers are thinking, “Uh huh. I’m sure you tell everyone that.”) YOU’RE RIGHT! We do say that to everyone. But we’re also so blessed (hashtag blessed — anyone!? 😂) to have the most amazing clients in the world. What else is there to say when each and every individual, couple, and family leaves their own lasting impression on us?!?

BUT WAIT …

Maybe there is something… that makes this couple EXTRA unique…

But you’ll have to wait until the end of the blog post to find out! ⬇️ ⬇️ ⬇️

Did someone call the FIRE DEPARTMENT!?!?!?

Yes. Yes they did.

And that’s because we tried to burn the city down. Well, not exactly. Nick and Miranda just executed the most epic lantern send off these St. Louis City streets have seen.

Paper lanterns are special to Nick and Miranda because they did it on their first vacation together. It was only fitting to cap the happiest day of their lives together (so far!) with a lantern send off.

Enter St. Louis Fire Department Truck 11. To the rescue!! While everyone was thankful that the firefighters were understanding … Miranda was on Cloud 10 posing on and in the fire truck with her new hubby!

Needless to say, it was an epic grand finale for an epic wedding day and definitely one for the books!

Congrats,

Nick & Miranda!

💕 Much love, Tiffany & Chris
