Mollie + Aaron | St. Louis Engagement Photography

Ryan and I just got back from shooting a pretty wedding in the ‘burbs of Chicago. Then, we flew straight to the sunny, white beaches of Seaside, FL where we photographed two of the cutest and sweetest families! We even added a couple of days to spend together on the beach – as most of you know – we love to get away and shooting in new places is always a perk!

Speaking of new places, U City’s City Hall has been on my list of places to shoot for a long time. I’m not going to lie, most of our couples love Forest Park. I do too! I just try to choose new locations within the park to give a little variety for both myself and my clients. I know the lay-of-the-land and it’s constantly changing with the seasons. However, I LOVE shooting in a fun new place. Mollie + Aaron were in for a treat when they said they were up for anything + any spot!:)City Hall even happened to be really close to where they are renovating their new home! Here are my 3 steps to a perfect engagement: 1) find a couple who is in love and not afraid to show it! 2) lighting! it always trumps item number three. 3) a fun location that compliments the overall look + aesthetic or has special meaning to the couple.

Mollie + Aaron really do have a unique love story. Their relationship literally progressed around the world! They met while getting their global MBA and traveled to 24 countries together; all while trying to keep it clandestine while traveling with 14 other students. Obviously, Ryan and I love to travel too.;)So seeing that these two love to do the same, and also love yummy dinners + wine, I was sold. Another sweet thing they mentioned that they celebrate is a “glad I met you day.” Ryan and I celebrate with a little sweet nudge or sweet note for our first date (“happy 13th”) + the day we got married (“happy 29th”). Sappy, I know. This is why I’m a wedding photographer! But seeeeee, my point is, we aren’t the only ones!;)(Ryan, please don’t be embarrassed).

Mollie is one of our past bridesmaids, and I’m so excited we can now call her our bride! We can’t wait to hang with you two next May!

Enjoy!

Ann + Matt | Bellerive Country Club Wedding

Hi! I have a super pretty, sunshiny wedding day for you! I don’t use the word often, but I was smitten by this bride’s classic style. I love her hair, the back of her Monique Lhuillier dress and her yummy Prada shoes (that got quite the wear from all this bride’s dancing!) I have to admit this day was probably one of the hottest Saturdays we had this year. But not having a large wedding party made it easy to breeze through bride+groom portraits fairly quickly. With a little break in between portraits and the reception, Ryan and I were able to capture the beautiful details at Bellerive Country Club, all while the family celebrated by sipping on champagne and enjoying an awesome Blue Grass band (friends of the bride’s brother). Pretty amazing way to spend your wedding day with the people that mean the most!

It truly is an exciting time for this family – Ann gets married and her little sister is expecting her first baby. Congratulations to everyone!

Enjoy!

Olivia | St. Louis Senior Photography

Happy Friday!

Meet our sweetest, cutest, most adorable Senior Ambassador – Olivia! This girl is a ton of fun, and totally won my heart with the sweetest note describing herself and the activities she is involved in when she applied for the Senior Ambassador role for our company! She is a Senior at Parkway South High School, loves to shop and is involved in cheerleading and a ton of clubs that recognize her for her academic success. We had a ball just boppin’ around Tower Grove Park capturing her personality – and I got my senior fix!;)

We are really excited to be working with Seniors and we hope to book a ton more sessions! If you fall in love with Olivia’s photos, please be sure to give us a shout, we’d love to hear from you.

Special thanks again to the talented Sweet Melissa, who did hair and make-up AND a big shout out to Jeans, Jackets & Jewels, where you can find cute accessories and that fun Bohemian-esq dress we used in the shots with the ladder and kite.

Enjoy!

Vivian + Ruby | St. Louis Newborn Photography

#oooohhhhhholycuteness! Vivian + Ruby, who I can only imagine are going to grow up to be the bestest of friends, are the sweetest twin sisters. I left this session feeling so happy – this family was just the nicest! Most of the time, before + during a session, I work closely with Mom + the baby(s). But this Dad (such a helper!) was so awesome that I have to give him a shout out. I’ve never seen someone so hands-on with little ones during a session.:)He was changing diapers, outfits and even helping with feedings x 2. Of course, doing all his tasks with a big genuine smile on his face. Such proud, exciting moments for these two – and I was honored to share a little part in it.

Enjoy the photos, and the last image I threw in for some fun! Newborns, especially twins, are a ton of work, but worth every special moment – happy or not.

Amy + Charlie | St. Louis Chase Park Plaza Wedding

Rain on your wedding day. It’s supposed to be considered serendipitous, right? Oh, how I remember a wedding day based on the weather. Perhaps it’s true, I’m secretly an 80 year old in a 30ish year old body worrying about the weather every minute – at least on a wedding day. Amy + Charlie’s big day did start perfectly at the Chase Park Plaza, where both the ceremony and reception were held. That made it easy for a Plan B. Luckily, because Amy + Charlie did a “First Look” near the Chase, we were able to get portraits in before the deluge and winds began. There was a moment when one of the bridesmaids asked if we should take cover or worry because the weather.com app tornado warning beeping on her phone. I nervously made that EEEEeeee face where you suck in air. …but I think we kept shooting. Later, I heard all the customers at Whole Foods had to take cover in the storage freezers (or something like that!) Right as the ceremony began, the rain drops vanished and a beautiful rainbow appeared in the sky. Pretty surreal for guests to experience this on the rooftop of the Starlight Room!

Katie Saeger with Simply & Forever, the planner + designer, always puts on a well-organized, detail-filled day. I’m sure you will agree when you see the photos! This couple is really super cute together.:)We enjoy couples who are fun, kind and have the ability to just roll with it, including the weather. My favorite part of the evening – a choreographed diddy! I smiled the entire time as I was culling (photog term: sorting through photos).

Enjoy the photos!
