Union Station Engagement, Part One | Steve and Noelle

POSTED IN : Engagements
FILED UNDER :

Steve was always the funny and cute brother of Noelle’s soccer teammates – the handsome older boy that unknowingly stole the hearts of the young teenage girls. It didn’t help that in high school he became Noelle’s math tutor, and the poor Miss Twitterpated Noelle had to think about Algebra equations while her heart fluttered out of her teenage chest for this boy with the adorable smile that constantly made her laugh.

But as life tends to do it grows people up and takes them to different places for a little while. So they didn’t see each other again until years later when, instead of being the teenage girl that played soccer with his younger sisters, she was the gorgeous woman that played next to him on his co-ed soccer team. Soon, the head-over-heels twitterpation was mutual and on the shores of Oahu, he pulled out a ring from his pocket and asked if they could be twitterpated for the rest of their lives.

My favorite thing about Steve and Noelle is how they constantly laugh together and it made us constantly laugh with them during their engagement session at Union Station in Los Angeles. The train station made for the perfect backdrop to tell their story because in just a few weeks these two adventurers are moving to London! On the one hand, I’m super excited for them, but on the other hand, I’m totally jealous! What an incredible story they’ll have to tell when they look back on this time in their lives. Just getting married is exciting enough and then getting to live in an amazing city across the world is the icing on the cake! So before they take off on their grand adventure, we photographed their engagement session at Union Station dreaming about their pending travels together.

How flippin’ adorable are these two? Their smiles are sooooo photogenic that it was almost impossible to narrow down the images. Thanks for making our jobs so difficult yet wonderful! We love it!

Steve is constantly teasing Noelle which made all of us laugh, but you can tell she adores this boy!

Steve claims that he’s not photogenic but I call shenanigans. He’s amazing in front of the camera… and I have proof!
