Anna and Nick had so much fun choosing their First Landing State Park engagement session, and their puppy China was a ball of fun and energy! I don’t often get the chance to photograph at this beach location, but was so happy to explore with Anna and Nick – I think my favorite place was the big, wide boardwalks.

First Landing State Park Engagement Session

How you two meet?

We both swiped right! Yes, we are the crazy couple that met on tinder.


When did you know he was the one?

Anna- I knew he was the one when I took him home to St. Louis and saw the way he interacted with my family. They can be quite a handful, but he was able to handle them and all of their quirks.


What was the proposal like?

It was simple and sweet. We were walking through Town Centre after dinner when he told me “I guess now is as good of a time as any,” and pulled out a beautiful black diamond ring (I may or may not have bluntly told him what I wanted). It was a cold, rainy night, but it was perfect!


What are some of your favorite things to do together?

We love going to movies and basically anything that involves good food. We also enjoy road trips together and spending time playing with our dog.


If you had to pick a word for your relationship, what would it be?

Goofy. No matter what we’re doing, we’re always making each other laugh- including at completely inappropriate times.


What are three dreams/goals for your marriage?

  1. Have a house full of dogs.
  2. I hope that no matter where we are at in life, we always take the time to remember why we love each other and why we fell in love.
  3. To grow as not only individuals but as a couple.
