Nikole and Jeremy had the right idea, a stylized retro-inspired wedding photoshoot! If you are wanting Pinterest-worthy wedding photos without worrying about loading up the bridal party or hungry wedding guests waiting at your reception venue, this is the route to go!
You may remember this lovely lady from her Pin-Up shoot earlier this year. Working with Nikole is this photog’s dream…she is all for vintage shoots that include her adorable 4-legged pals. In reality, photographing pets on the actual wedding day can be a bit of a challenge. During this shoot, these pups did really well since unlike a usual wedding, a drunk uncle was not attempting to pet them. Lucky for us, we were able to park a sweet red Thunderbird in front of an old mechanic shop in downtown St. Louis. The backdrop was the last perfect touch to this ode to the 50’s.Read More
Meg’s been planning this wedding in her mind since she was a little girl. The day finally came! Her prince, Nick, came and swept her off her feet. Well actually it’s probably more like he came and let her have her own two feet and a voice to boot and she fell madly in love. Hey it’s a 2015 princess story. Together they planned the perfect wedding at a place where they share a mutual interest- in Forest Park at the Highland Golf Club House.
Forest Park of course has so many wonderful places to take photos. We have had non stop rain for what feels like months, but somehow they lucked out and had full sun! So we seized the opportunity and tromped all over the park. It’s always hard to narrow down the photos to just a few of my favorites so that I don’t bombard the post with a ridiculous amount of photos. So here you go. Just a few top choices.Read More
These lucky grooms received one of my wedding photography packages as a wedding present. Talk about a great wedding present! Everyone at the ceremony could feel the love between the grooms that beautiful day. These two love birds have been together for over 20 years and decided to tie the knot at the Beall Mansion in Alton, Illinois.
Here's to years of wedded bliss, gentlemen. Congrats!Read More
Eight Bridesmaids and eight groomsmen that is. A big bridal party yes, but we all had fun carting around St. Louis getting pics everywhere from St. Louis Union Station, LaFayatte Square Park, Benton Park Cafe, and the final destination for the wedding and ceremony, Third Degree Glass Factory. No torrential down pours were going to stop us! Matt and Kate are a beautiful couple and made a beautiful bride and groom. I am so happy to have met them and have been privileged enough to be a part of their special day. It was a spectacular wedding full of wonderful people to share it with them.Read More
It was a BEAUTIFUL day in LaFayette park for these two lovebirds with a lovely venue to follow at The Jefferson Underground. Such a fun and beautiful couple. They made all the photos fun to create all the way down to all the lovely details at the reception. I was honored to share their wedding day with them. Congrats Mike and Danielle! Here's to many many many years together.Read More
The bonds that derby create are unbreakable-- and this wonderful couple is absolutely proof of that! With these two fun lovebirds, my job to shoot super sweet engagement pictures was a breeze. They brought along their roller gear, of course! And as an added bonus, head-to-toe animal pajamas! We were definitely turning heads in the park. Can't wait to photograph their big day.Read More
Stacy won a raffle at an Easter Egg Hunt for dogs and the prize was a session for her and her pug named Jaci. Stacey and Jaci were quite the pair. Even though Jaci was extremely disciplined and well behaved, she is the definition of a ‘Little Dickens’. Jaci had me laughing hysterically in the park. Every time Stacy attempted to lay next to Jaci, Jaci would move two feet to the right, away from her…just for the sake of being sassy. Several of the photos of the two together are of Stacey trying to convince Jaci to move closer. All the pug sass aside…these photos turned out great. What a lucky winner!Read More
True love does not come in any more poetic a form than with these two. A captivating couple; complimentary of each other, beautiful, fun and modest, all represented in every last detail of their wedding. I was honored to share their wedding day with them.
I hope you enjoy the pics as much as I do.
