Stephanie and Mark's Joplin Engagement Session

Hey everybody!

I've known Stephanie for years, but when I met Mark in the parking lot of Starbucks in Joplin to start their engagement session, he introduced himself as "mock." Or, maybe, "mach." Not sure. Then, .5 seconds later I felt like a big doof because I remembered he (and Stephanie) live in England. Yeah... I'm a dummy.

Needless to say, my super-charm kicked in and I rebounded... haha! No, really though... we had a great time shooting! I think I spent more time laughing and joking with Mark than I did shooting. Is that wrong? :)

Since Stephanie grew up in Joplin, we chose some places that were sentimental to her: The Christman building that bears her family's last name, and the park by the house she used to live in. I love when sessions can be personal like that!

Here are my favorites from the shoot! I know it's more than I usually post, but I couldn't help it!







Talk to you soon,
Dale
