J and I recently had our engagement session with our amazingly talented and uber sweet wedding photographer, Lisa Dolan of Lisa Dolan Photography and the pictures are finally back! What I like about Lisa is that I feel like we are kindred souls. She gets us. From our first consultation, I knew that it was a perfect match. When it comes to wedding photographers, many make you feel like you're on their time, but not with Lisa. We met at Pi Pizzeria in Kirkwood, she hung out with us while we chatted over drinks and a pizza. On top of her flexibility to meet us somewhere that worked for us, she also has a love for gold... and she owns the same Fable & Lore necklace as me. It was a match made in wedding heaven.
We decided to wait until spring to have our engagement session, so that we could take full advantage of the foliage and blooms. Plus it gave me time to stumble over a perfect Kate Spade dress. While brainstorming ideas on locations, Lisa helped us to choose Lafayette Park. We wanted to do a location outside, since nature and parks are important to us. We also chose to have Side Project Cellar as a secondary location for our session. Side Project Brewing holds a special place in our hearts, as it was the place we went immediately following our engagement. It's a place of celebration for us. So after getting in touch with a friend, we had permission to use the space for our engagement session (and to enjoy a perfectly sour brew at 11am!).
And here they are! I couldn't be happier with the end result. She made us feel like movie stars that day, and I can't wait to see what she has in store for the big day!Read More
