I was very excited when Adam contacted me last fall to shoot the engagement session of him and his fiance, Sarah. Adam and I had a class together in college, and though we never really talked, it was fun to meet him in person on very different terms. Oh, the places we all end up, eh?
Adam is in marketing and Sarah is a dietician. These two are yet another Darbi G. couple who found one another in cyberspace. The kicked off their relationship in the flesh over gourmet burgers at Blanc here in town. Sarah says she actually went on eHarmony more to just have fun with dating, but after a few dates with guys who just weren’t worth a 2nd go around, she knew something was for real when it was Adam who sat across from her.
Their connection continued to grow and a bit more than a year after they started dating, Adam proved to be a sneaky guy and got into Sarah’s house to spread out rose petals on a path to the living room where he had spelled out MARRY ME with summer flower. And because he ran out of flowers to make a question mark, he jokes that it was more of a command.
When Sarah showed up not long after he had finished his flora masterpiece, he was there waiting on one knee. Her “Yes” was spoken and they celebrated at another fave restaurant, Bluestem.
For their session, they opted to do a bit of what I call “block exploring.” we picked a starting location in the Crossroads and then meandered around, shooting wherever the light or colors called to us. I remember laughing a lot with these two!!!
I wish you both a wonderful ever after, Adam & Sarah! And…go ,MIZZOU!! 😉
