Chelsey + Chad

St. Louis Wedding Photographers - Washington Avenue Engagement Photos by Oldani Photography

Washington Avenue / Downtown St. Louis / Forest Park

Since Chelsey and Chad met down on Washington Avenue, they really wanted to pull that into their engagement photos.  We started off at the Dubliner which is where they first met.  It was so funny to be in there with them.  They couldn't pinpoint which seat it was for sure, so we just went with all of the contenders!

After downtown, we headed over to Forest Park and that is where we met Stella.  She is their Goldendoodle and she is all pup!  So fluffy and sweet :)  The sun was glowing and as it started to set we all remembered the camo!  Quick wardrobe change and some random banter from an even more random guy, and we were taking huntingesque photos in Forest Park.  Who'd know any better?!  Just another reason to love this city so much.
