Anna is one of those people who I knew instantly that we would need to be friends. When she reached out about wedding photos last December, I loved her personality immediately. “We are so excited to meet you!”, she said. You wouldn’t think that would mean much, but in a world where couples reach out to multiple photographers at a time, it meant a lot to me.
Anna and Ryan grew up in the town of Rolla. And their story is true to one of those friends-to-lovers plots that you see in movies. It happened to them! When they were both teens, they realized that the other person was pretty special – and, that was the beginning. They’ve been inseparable since. Anna and Ryan are one of those couples where you look at them and you just smile because – not only do they adore each other – but they enjoy being with each other. And that trait is something every couple should emulate – do you like them as a person? Do you like just being with them? Your marriage will last years longer if you genuinely enjoy being with the other person.
True to my perception of her, Anna’s personality was so warm and friendly when we finally met in person. She just sort of glows! I can’t wait to see her as a bride!
Anna, Ryan – thank you for the privilege of capturing your love in your engagement pictures! The two of you are so cute, and we had so much fun with you all. We can’t wait to photograph your wedding!
