Ann & Phillip | Tower Grove Snowy Engagement Photos
A fresh blanket of snow can bring with it a soothing quiet. Cities and trees seem to hold their breath, struggling not to break the temporary tranquillity, and we in response tend to seek comforting and warm places to share these pensive moments. All in response to a not so simple form of precipitation.
Snow is not simply frozen rain. Unlike sleet, a snow crystal forms, much like a pearl, around a particle of dust cast skyward and held aloft until conditions of humidity and temperature coalesce to encapsulate that particle in a miraculous aqueous crystal prism. Yet this is only the beginning. This crystal is still being whirled within a cloud and with varying temperatures and conditions within, the crystal grows in response. The unique path followed under these unique conditions shapes the crystal into something both simple and complex. A faceted, prismatic marvel that we could, all too easily, entirely miss.
Ann & Phillip, after being whirled together through their lives have grown together into something simple and simultaneously complex. We enjoyed sharing one of these tranquil afternoons with them, capturing simple images that only hint at their many faceted ardor.
We braved the cold with Ann & Phillip, embracing the quiet calm of a snow covered Tower Grove Park for their engagement session.
We are very much looking forward to their St Louis wedding this fall at The Thaxton.
We warmed up and took some more pictures at Sasha’s Wine Bar, a perfect second location to their engagement session, the very spot they had their first date. The cozy feel and eclectic decor, built around classic brick and timber was a relaxed environment to collect our thoughts, taste some wine, and ponder the freshly fallen snow.
