Marquette High St. Louis Engagement Session | Mariana and Andrew

I bet you read that title and thought, WHAT?!! But let me tell you the story of Mariana and Andrew…

They met in Spanish class, at Marquette High School, over 10 years ago. Mariana was an exchange student from Brazil, and quickly became friends with Andrew. Mariana was in awe of everything about coming to an American high school.  When she saw the halls of lockers for the first time, she said she felt like she was in the movies. In Brazil, they don’t have lockers at school! When she saw the football field for the first time, she said she felt like she was in a scene from Grease.

Andrew asked Mariana out back in high school, and she turned him down!  Then, years later, they reconnected on Facebook, and the rest is history!

Mariana and Andrew wanted to bring back the nostalgia and have their engagement session back where it all began…Marquette High. And it was the sweetest!
