Engagement pictures for a couple not afraid to cuddle

I met Sarah through my dear friend/former bride, Paige. Sarah was a bridesmaid of Paige and was such a trooper that freezing day last April. And it’s a good thing she can weather frigid weather, because half of Sarah and her fiancee Aaron’s own engagement session was the coldest session in my life. Sarah lucked out though, because Aaron had no problems keeping the heat on. 😉

Ashley Clarke accompanied me that day. Knowing we didn’t want to get frostbite right off the bat, we started inside at Sarah & Aaron’s home in Fulton, Missouri. And we met three of their warm-bodied babies. Ain’t they cute? (from left to right: Frank, Penny and Ashes)

Still at their place…so pre-Ice Age.

Such a darling couple in their specs… and gotta love the teal wall of Aaron’s “Man Room.”

This was my rather lame idea…but it turned out kinda cool other than the fact that the words didn’t show up as well throughout.

On our way downtown, we made a pit stop at this orange beast of a garage. I saw the sign and said it’d be cute for them to stand by. Sarah thought it extra fitting, as she assured me she’s super tight with her money. haha

The most important stop of the day was at the scene of the crime: their first date. It was here, at Beks, that Sarah and Aaron first started getting to know one another. And I will be back to that restaurant because let me tell you…the menu is chock full of delicious plates…

I love this in black and white, too. But I’m going with the color for the blog.

Beks was rife with photo ops…
One of my faves for the day…

Another plus for Beks…it’s so darn cozy and inviting.

A sweet, even cozier moment Ashley caught:

And then it was time. Time to bundle up. Focus on love at hand, not the arctic air at face..and hands. (Seriously, after 15 minutes, my fingers began pruning as if I were in the bathtub too long.)

My fave catch of Ashley’s…

We ended at the bridge where they go walking. Ashley’s angle:

And mine. I think this is another fave. I like the lines. And how you kinda feel cold looking at it…but in a warm way. haha

Want to know how happy their frozen feet were when the session was over?

I have a feeling that their wedding…at the end of June…will be quite a bit different in temperatures. THANKFULLY!! haha

Sarah & Aaron, I can’t wait to finish your gallery…and am looking forward to June 26!!!
