Ted and Lynette’s love story began in Columbia while they were both attending Mizzou. It is kind of a funny story, they had mutual friends for several years but never really noticed each other. Ted finally asked out Lynette on a date after a couple of years. They obviously clicked and the rest is history. The two now reside in Kansas City, but wanted to photograph their engagement shoot in the city where it all began. This was my first time meeting these two and after about 10 minutes I felt I had know them for years. They are an awesome couple and adore each other. I am so happy they connected and get to spend the rest of their lives together.
We began our shoot at Capen Park in Columbia as it is incredibly beautiful this time of year. Looking off the bluff at all the glorious colors is quite magical on a foggy Missouri morning. Then, we headed downtown Columbia to recreate their first date which began at RagTag Cinema. After they watched a movie, they went to Hot Box Cookies! The two dined on chocolate chip cookies and milk with two straws :) This was such a fun engagement shoot and I hope it brought back lots of sweet memories from that first date! Can’t wait for spring!
