Our Columbia engagement photo session would not be complete without some classic Mizzou campus engagement photos. This university, campus, and city mean so much to us both individually and as a couple. Mizzou led us to each other and brought us together.
Sometimes I think back to an early college-advising meeting with my high-school counselor, during which he handed me a handwritten list of his recommended journalism schools. Of all the schools on the list, I vividly remember that University of Missouri-Columbia instantly stood out to me. I wasn’t sure why at the time, since I wasn’t familiar with the school and didn’t know anyone who had gone there. To be honest, I actually wasn’t certain how to pronounce “Mizzou” before I applied, either! But I felt drawn to Mizzou from the moment I pulled up to campus. I instantly knew it was the right school for me and the right place for me to grow and come into my own. Looking back, I often wonder if I was destined to move to Missouri, a state I had never been to before, not only to better myself but also to meet Dan. It’s mind-blowing to think of all the small steps and big leaps we both had to take to set ourselves on the path toward finding each other.
Madeline of Madexposure Photography did an amazing job planning our campus engagement photos so that we could maximize time and hit all the stops that are special to us. I am so happy with how the photos came out and so impressed by her. I cannot recommend Madeline enough for Columbia, Mo. engagement photos! She also shot rustic, country engagement photos of us for a mix of styles.
