St Louis Botanical Garden Engagement: Adam + Randi
She walked through the halls with that blonde hair swaying back and forth and a smile that made his heart flutter. She carried her books to class, unaware of just how beautiful she was. He was amazed. They were on their way home with a few friends when Adam first asked for her number. At least that's what a friend told Randi. He left a note on her myspace wishing her happiness over the thanksgiving break. She wished him the same just to be polite. And even after many soccer games where he started for Bolivar High, she still didn't know who Adam was.
Then, on a very special night, Randi went with a friend to watch a movie. And Adam and Randi ended up mushed together on the couch. So much so that he *had* to put his arm around her just to create room. And with his arm around her, Randi noticed Adam. The boy with a smile that could melt her heart. The boy who could make her laugh like no other.
Adam and Randi, I am so blessed to document your love and I can't wait for your amazing wedding next summer. You guys are adorable.
Adam and Randi wanted me to photograph their session at the St Louis Botanical Gardens. And I couldn't be happier about all the gorgeousness in the gardens.
Randi, you are just gorgeous. Just GORGEOUS.
Randi's grandmother makes a quilt for each married couple in the family. And since Randi's is still in the works it was incredibly meaningful to her to use her grandmother's quilt in the session...
Randi's grandfather fought in WW2 and she wanted to bring his photo, which her grandfather took with him all over the world.
Randi brought back a pocket watch from Rome after visiting for a few weeks this summer.
And an old box that her mother gave her as a child...
Gloves from Venice...
