When it’s 20 degrees outside, a winter engagement session is best done with coffee somewhere in the picture. And we have a lot of it here in pictures. I also discovered that coffee was a binding element in Lauren and Aaron’s relationship, as their first date was over coffee. We met at Kayak’s Coffee near Forest Park in St. Louis to discuss how this session would pan out. The direction here was: no direction. Chill and enjoy coffee together. Kayak’s Coloradolike lodge motif is super comforting and lends to the warmth of coffee date coziness. Following, we went to the Missouri History Museum before dashing out into the cold to enjoy the sunshine and pretend it wasn’t 20 degrees out. 😉 Lauren and Aaron are getting married in June in St. Louis. Congratulations! I can’t wait to photograph their big day!
