Hello! We hope everyone is doing great. Today we’ve got a very awesome engagement session to share with everyone. This shoot was really special for us. For one, it was with one of my oldest friends (Marissa). We spent a lot of time together growing up, and while we don’t spend a lot of time together anymore, we’ve never stopped being friends. I will always have immense love and respect for Marissa. Second, this was our first ever LGBT shoot. Now, while I won’t get overly political, I will say this – We have always and will always believe in and support equal rights for all of the wonderful people in this country. With that, we are staunch proponents of marriage equality not only in the state of Missouri, but across this entire nation. Love is for everyone and it should never matter to anyone else when it comes to who we love and who loves us back. Someday, and I truly believe it will be someday soon, we will all be afforded the same liberty to marry the person we love, regardless of sexual orientation.
When Marissa initially reached out about us doing their photos a year ago, I got so excited for her. We tried to make it happen, but just couldn’t ever seem to get things worked out. Thankfully, we were able to make it happen this year. It was a beautiful day and we had such a great time. These two are seriously so incredible together. Every laugh and smile you see is 100% genuine. It’s really awesome getting to see two people so in love and share some of those moments with them. Simply put, these two are so rad.
We hope you all love the photos as much as we do! Congrats to Marissa and Mariana on the engagement!
Take care and talk soon,
-Aaron & Whit
