Mike + Emily | Downtown St. Louis Engagement Session

Almost one year ago to the day, we met Mike and Emily of Films by Juniper for the first time. We were both hired to shoot an awesome wedding - us shooting stills, them shooting video. We had so much fun working with them that day and began to refer them to all of our couples interested in videography. 

A few months later, Mike and Emily got engaged during a trip to Portland. Shortly thereafter, they contacted us. Their plan was to elope and they wanted us to shoot it. We were thrilled, honored, excited, and needless to say, completely on board. We met up over drinks a few times to talk plans for the elopement, and from there a friendship began. Mike and Emily are creative, stylish, fun, young, silly, hardworking and just genuinely nice people. Sometimes we can't figure out why they like hanging out with us since we are quite a bit older than them, but nonetheless, we are very grateful that they came into our lives :)

After a few locations were considered, Mike and Emily ultimately decided on eloping in Joshua Tree, CA. For their engagement session they suggested an urban vibe since their wedding photos will be full of desert-y goodness. One of my best buddies Kevin Lowery was in town staying with us and he joined us on this shoot. We had a blast and all shot roughly a million photos because let's be honest, these two are so fun and pretty damn easy on the eyes.

If you haven't seen Mike and Emily's lovely work, I highly suggest checking out their website here. If you're getting married and need a videographer, hire them. You won't be disappointed.

Here are some (a ton) of our favorites from this awesome session. Mike and Emily, we love you guys! Hope you love what you see so far, and we can't wait for your wedding. Is it April yet?! ;)
