Belleville Eckert’s Apple Orchard Engagement | Pamela + Max

st louis engagement

Some of us wait our whole lives searching for Mr. Right, but not Pamela. She found Max and chose him to not only be her high school sweetheart, but picked him (see what I did there) to be her husband as well! 

After opening present on Christmas Eve, Max finally popped the question. Pamela immediately said yes, and the rest is history. It turns out you can find the love of your life in high school. (and with those socks, who could say no?)

Pamela + Max opted for a September engagement underneath the apple trees of the beautiful Eckert’s Orchards in Belleville, IL. They spent the afternoon sharing a picnic, and followed it up with one of their favorite things to do together, grocery shopping. Read on for more! 

“We enjoyed trying new things and getting our of our comfort zone. We also thought Dawn and Joe made the photo shoot so much fun and lively!” -Pamela + Max

Later in the day we headed inside to pick up some relationship essentials from the country store. Nothing like having the love of your life wheel you around the store a la a John Mayer song to really know you chose the right guy. Am I right ladies?

“I thought Dawn and Joe were so helpful and always willing to help and give good ideas. They made literally every picture come to life and look amazing, After the wedding all you really have left are the memories and pictures and she did absolutely wonderful!” -Pamela + Max

Before ending their date together Pamela + Max snuck away to the wine cellar. I shot all of these images from outside so I couldn’t hear, but their sweet nothings were nothing short of romantic goals. *le sigh*

Pamela + Max are planning a Fall 2019 wedding at The Weingarten in Belleville, IL. and by the looks of it, it is going to be filled with all of the love they could ever hope for.  

A big thanks to Eckert’s for allowing us to shoot this beautiful engagement couple at a location that meant so much to all of us.
