Here’s the deal with this engagement session, I love it. With the smiles and the laughs, you can really feel the love through these photos. This is the couple that makes you want to fall in love, and if you already have, it makes you want to do it all over again. When Joseph and Mikella say an ideal date is going to the farmers market, brunch, and walking around downtown, this is exactly the vibe I get from this session.
If you are a “Type A” person, planning is nothing new to you and no detail, big or small, is overlooked. Mikella is a planner and absolutely killed it with planning their engagement photos at their wedding venue. How sweet will that be to have the two at the same location roughly a year apart. Two distinct memories at the same place could be perfect for you too.
Engaged couples know that the perfect time to practice for your favorite wedding photos is your engagement session. And these two definitely got practice for their first kiss in the session!
The venue, Cooper’s Ridge, is located in Boonville, Missouri. The venue has rustic roots with modern charm. For your wedding you can go all out with decorations or keep it casual, it’s all up to you. It is settled on 38 acres of rolling hills, with beautiful scenery everywhere. This entire venue and all the land gives endless opportunities for the perfect pictures, like in the middle of the field with the greenery fully surrounding you.
Mikella’s white dress was casual and dressy, the open back was to die for! The photos were posed, but did not feel unnatural. Like when Joseph and Mikella were sitting in the ceremony area with their arms around each other but smiling like no one is even watching.
Mikella and Joseph both had smiles that truly showed how in love they are. The way they look at and laugh with each other makes it near impossible to not smile with them. How can you look at these photos and feel anything except LOVE?!
