When I first met with Amy & Justin early on this past summer, I was won over by Amy's animated demeanor and Justin's good-natured smirk. They were clearly smitten... goofy, yet mature. I love that combo!
For their engagement session, we hit their alma mater, the University of Missouri-Columbia. Good ol' Mizzou. These two Tigers wanted to start out on the Francis Quadrangle for some classic shots by the columns.
Look how tiny they are in comparison!
Check out her blues!
They stood on two separate columns...and I asked them to hold hands. They claimed they had too short of arms, but they did it! :)
A "normal shot"...
A fave. I just love the body language.
If I had a dime everytime I heard Amy say, "you're so sweet" to Justin, I'd have had tons of jingle in my pockets. He was so affectionate with her. Not too "manly" to be sensitive. I loved that.
I spy pretty flowers. And a couple in love!
If her smile can't woo you, I don't know what can. She just emanates warmth.
time for a bear hug!
We couldn't pass up the opportunity for a stolen kiss beside the KOMU news van.
I love finding pockets of light. How romantic.
Wasn't it a beautiful day! Check out the lovely sky, Memorial Union...and such an adorable couple!
Squeeze him tight, Amy!
She's so tiny, he can easily swing her to and fro. This is one of my faves.
You know a man loves a woman when....
He lets her make a fish out of him.
In front of a camera, to boot!
They have a thing for signs. Just wait till their wedding...we have something in store. :)
We were lucky enough to get permission to shoot on the MU stadium. I felt like a kid at a board game store. (I know that sounds odd, but I like board games more than candy..so deal with it. :)
There were no hot dogs...but we didn't care!
After that...we played!
Behind those doors...is where the Tigers get ready.
Under the bleachers...
On our way out, I wanted one more...
Then we stopped at the tunnel that goes under Stadium Blvd. Had to have some fun there.
and they risked their lives for me. Sort of. :)
Amy & Justin! I had soooo much fun with you. Thanks for being game for anything. I cannot wait to see you on your big day next June!!
