Amanda + Andrew | St. Louis Public Library + MX Movie Theater | St. Louis, MO
We are so excited about this session! It took us a few weeks to plan out Amanda and Andrew's engagement session but it was well worth the wait to be able to utilize the locations that really spoke to their personalities and their shared passions and hobbies! This was our first time photographing anyone at the iconic St. Louis Public Library downtown. This library is everything any book lover could want in a library. It's set up like a museum with many halls and staircases that lead it's visitors to different rooms and spaces. Some of these areas are modern and streamlines while others are classic and grand. I definitely recommend a visit to anyone visiting downtown St. Louis. After exploring the library and reading a bit of Harry Potter, we headed off to finish up the session at MX Theater downtown. This theater is really cute and small. The staff was super friendly and the bar was gorgeous. Amanda and Andrew grabbed their favorite movie snacks - popcorn and slushies - and cuddled up in the front row. They both love going to movies so much that Andrew actually used it as part of his proposal! With the help of a friend, he filmed a movie trailer based off of the first Harry Potter movie. Amanda was at the movies with her mother when, after a few normal movie trailers, Andrew's special video played. As the video ended, the lights went up in the theater and Andrew was there, dressed up and ready to propose! It's definitely one of the most unique and fun proposals we've ever heard!
