S & P | St. Louis Photographer

I had such a fun time with S and P last weekend at their anniversary session! I’ve known these two since high school and was really excited when they got in touch with me. See, they’ve been married 10 years and didn’t love their wedding photos as much as they’d hope so they decided that being married 10 years warranted new photos! They are such a fun and happy couple and it was so great to catch up with them and capture the happiness they share!

We had a lot of  and I am pretty sure they now think I am crazy, but hopefully they will forgive me when they see their pictures. In the meantime, here is a sneak peek of the happy couple. Happy Anniversary to S & P!

This next photo may have led them to think, “Is she crazy?!” :)

B & B – A Love Story | St. Louis Portrait Photographer

I had the honor of taking B & B’s engagement pictures, but when they called to ask if I would shoot their wedding, I had to turn them down because I am not a wedding photographer. They had a beautiful wedding, but decided they’d like to have additional portraits taken so I had the honor of indulging them! B had her hair and makeup done, ordered new flowers and pulled her gown out of storage! We found this beautiful little spot at sunset for their beautiful portraits!

Thanks B&B for allowing me the opportunity to capture these special moments!!

B & B | St. Louis Engagement Photographer

B & B are getting married! And, since Miss B spends more time with my nieces than I do, I was super excited to take engagement pictures for her and Mr. B. :) They have a fabulous puppy who happens to be a big Ohio State fan so he joined in the fun!

The cold and wind didn’t stop us from enjoying a fun fall morning! Best wishes for a life of happiness to B & B!! blog2 blog3 blog

K&J Are Getting Married! | St. Louis Engagement Session

K and J are getting married! Woot Woot! K is my cousin and is one of my most favorite people. XOXO. She is so willing to help, has watched my kids in a pinch on countless occasions, and is just too sweet for words!

I was really excited about this engagement session and I have so many images to share, but it’s not a sneak peek if you show every image right away SO, here are just three from the day. I may be back with more later!!

K and J are a super fun, whimsical couple and my idea for this session seemed right up their alley and I was right! Plus, they called me with so many of their own ideas that were way better than mine and worked out perfectly!

Enjoy your sneak peek! SO many more awesome shots to come! Love you guys! Blog Who needs rings when you have the coolest vintage key necklace to wear? Blog3 Blog7 blog5

R & S | St. Louis Engagement Session

I was so lucky this week; one of Tim’s fraternity brother’s and his fiancee came into town to have a session with me! Isn’t that the nicest thing? S e-mailed me months ago so we’ve been planing locations and clothes and dates for awhile now. All week, it was chilly and rainy and we were starting to put together our backup plan, but the day came and so did the sun; it was a beautiful day!!! We headed down to the Central West End and borrowed the alley behind my sister in law’s house, which you may remember from her engagement pictures last year. I just LOVE the quirkiness that it has and all the different textures and backgrounds. Afterwards, we made our way to Forest Park for a few more. Oh, how I love the silhouette of these two! Aren’t they so sweet? I have a lot to show because I think they are all so cute!

Both R and S were really good sports, even when R was looking at me like I was crazy! Thanks so much for a wonderful day! We love you guys! Blog6 Blog5 blog7 Blog4 Blog3 Blog2 Blog

And put them all together…. Blog

Love in the Alley

What do you do when you have so many pictures you like that you can’t pick just one? Post a lot of them!

I had so much fun taking pictures of Tim’s sister, Laura, and her fiance, Bobby, today! We picked the alley behind their condo and Bobby wasn’t feeling it at first, but we converted him quickly! They were great models! I showed Laura a few examples of poses I liked, and she made them happen! I wish all photography sessions went this smoothly (and I wish all couples were this happy together)!

By the way, this is the BEST alley in the world! So many textures and different backgrounds! bl1 bl3 bl2 bl4
