Shelter Gardens & Capen Park Engagement Session | Mattie and Solomon

Couples

Introducing Mattie and Solomon, the latest of my couples to have beautiful Columbia engagement session featured on the blog!  Mattie and Solomon are such a down to Earth, cute couple and really seemed to be up for anything!  Our first stop was at Pinnacles, just north of Columbia, MO.  Upon arrival we quickly realized that the creek (river?) was flooded, and there was no way we were getting photos in the rapids!  We headed to Capen Park to try to get the same nature trail vibe of Pinnacles and, although the creek there was also flooded, we captured some gorgeous images in the greenery of the park and on the bridge that crosses the river.

Next, Mattie got a little more dressed up in a gorgeous, fitted bodice maxi dress, and we headed to Shelter Gardens.  The grass and greenery, as well as the florals of the garden were the perfect compliment to her outfit and the mood of the engagement session.  

Mattie and Solomon are so easy to get along with, and we had such a relaxed time taking beautiful photos of them.  Mattie loved “how simple it was to capture pictures of us out of our normal element without it being awkward” and loved how comfortable and fun the session was.  Here is a little more about how these two got engaged from Mattie’s point of view:


After passing NCLEX and Solomon getting his first teaching job,  we decided our next step in this journey would be to purchase a house. Once we moved in and were saying goodbyes to our families, Solomon asked me the question I’ve been waiting to hear for 6ish years… I obviously said yes.


Now the two will be becoming husband and wife in September!  I can’t wait to join you on your special day, Mattie and Solomon!  I hope you love your pictures!

xoxo, Amanda
