Chris & Brittany | Missouri Farm Engagement Session

Chris and Brittany collaborated with me to have an engagement session that is true to themselves. Nothing makes me happier with a photo session than when I feel like the identity of the subject(s) is being truly, creatively, and beautifully conveyed. Brittany decided to get down to her roots and she and Chris (and horses Spanky and Tank) met me down on her grandparents farm in Cape Girardeau (it’s huge and has been in the family for years). I was in heaven! I had such a great time and they were amazing models-all four of them! I’m so excited about the big wedding in Fall 2014! We hung out through sunset and even after, enjoying a few romantic shots by candlelight on one awesome summer night!

Winter Engagement Shoot_Saint Louis Wedding Photography_01

I’m just about caught up with posting sessions from 2012 on here. Kaylin and Nyle had a winter themed Engagement session shot just after Christmas. These high school sweethearts are getting married soon. Kaylin will be a military wife then, and today, on Memorial Day, and always I want to express my sincere gratitude for the service of men like Nyle and the sacrifices their families make. Congratulations you two!

Diana and Patrick Engagement Session

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

Patrick and Diana wanted to have their e-session at the beautiful Washington University Campus (where both have spent lots of time the last couple of years in the MBA program). They first met in 2008 in Chicago and really hit it off after a blind date. They have been best friends ever since. Patrick proposed in 2011 and a wedding is in the works for the fall of 2013. I’m excited to be able to share their session today and wish them the best of luck!

Jenny and Dustin Engagement Session

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Hey there! I have a special little engagement session to share with the world today! It didn’t take long for Jennifer and Dustin to know they were right for each other after they met in church several months ago. Here they are now, getting ready to get married in July! We met at Jolly Mill for their sweet engagement session:

 

And this t shirt is a souvenir from the restaurant where Dustin proposed :)

And why not top this post off with a sweet little video?

Jennifer and Nate {the engagement session}

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

So Jen and Nate are a perfect 10 on the cute couple scale!  Seriously!  They are all smiles and they completely adore each other, it doesn’t get much better than that!  I’m so excited about their wedding next summer I’m sure it will just be the absolute sweetest thing!  Oh, and finishing this session up on a dreary day like today makes me soOOoo miss amazing fall weather!

And aren’t they already such a sweet little family bringing their puppies to the Forest Park engagement session?

Jennifer’s makeup for this session was done by Rachel Pereira.

Emily and Scooter {video}

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Making this video has been a new adventure for me. I was pretty nervous about how to do it. It more than stressed me out. However, I’m really excited about how it has turned out. Thank you Emily and Scooter for your patience! They are getting married on Friday and I think this will make the perfect addition to their reception. Do you?

Best wishes you two!!!

Emily and Scooter {engagement session: round 2}

Monday, September 5th, 2011

Although it went super well, my first session with these two got cut short because of terrible weather.  And it worked out fine, because we got together for round two a few weeks ago and came up with this fun themed session.  Goodness!  Aren’t they cute!  It was a good time, I look forward to seeing more of Emily and Scooter in the future!

Emily and Scooter {Engagement session: Round 1}

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

Hey guys!  Welcome to my new blog!  Hope you frickin love it!

I’m gonna kick it off today with some great blog posts!  Here’s Emily and Scooter.  If you had told these guys back in High School that they would be getting married this fall they would not have believed you.  Especially Emily who thought Scooter was just plain cocky.  Of course, she has since found out how wrong she was!  And now here they are, so in love and ready to spend their lives together!
