Jennifer + Patrick | St. Louis Wedding Photography

Who knew January could be keep me so busy! The past few days, I’ve been working on updating my website – it’s been like 3 years, so I think it’s time to freshen it up with more recent imagery. I use a company called Photobiz for my site and everything is template based. So really it’s me on the phone begging them to tweak things a bit on the back-end to keep in line with my branding. They have amazing customer service.:)

This wedding is gonna make you a little nostalgic for fall. Jennifer + Patrick chose the perfect sunny October day! She wanted everything really rustic and for portraits to be in a wooded area. I think we did just that!:)The reception was at the Forest Park Visitor Center – yep, back-to-back reception venues …if you noticed Jess + Bassey, my last wedding post. While I was editing portraits, I was listening to Mat Kearney Pandora station and a song by Switchfoot called Always came on. It’s totally the perfect song to tune into while looking at these stunners!:)

Joyatee + Sam | St. Louis Botanical Garden Engagement

Ryan and I just got back from a long MLK weekend adventure in NYC! The very same time last year I was holding hands with Jimmy Fallon. Okay, not really, but close. We got tickets to the show and he high-fived me on his way out at the end of the show. (Thanks to my friend Megan who recorded the episode and snapped an iPhone pic – see last photo – I can hold that moment near + dear!:)) This year we bummed around in the cold getting inspiration, satiating our culinary fix and of course, shopping! We also visited the Statue of Liberty. We were one of the few lucky ones to get tickets in advance to climb all the way up into Lady Liberty’s crown! Pretty neat experience.

On to this cute couple … Joyatee + Sam are our first couple who braved the winter for a cozy engagement and they will also be our very first wedding of 2015!:)I seriously can’t wait to get started again. I’ve got just 3 more weddings to edit from 2014 until the cycle starts all over again.;)But I’m feelin’ fresh + renewed! Having a daily yoga practice has helped me find a balance between what I love (my work) and my personal life. Rainy with a hint of sleet doesn’t quite make for the perfect recipe for an engagement session, but the beautiful grounds of the Botanical Gardens offered us some neat places to explore + a warm haven.

Joseph “Matteo” | 11 days old | St. Louis Newborn Photography

“Matteo,” Italian for Matthew, is about as cute as his name. This little guy stole my heart and the show! Hands-down the best.baby.ever. He slept through the entire session and didn’t give me one peep (or diaper change!) That being said, switching outfits + set ups was a breeze. I have no idea how Mom + Dad are going to choose their favorites. When there are so many amazing images, I like to suggest doing a sweet album to showcase those sweet moments.:)

His aaaaadorable (perfect-fit) knits were even made from a shop in Italy. Now that is my kind of shopping! Well done, Mom!;)

Enjoy the photos!

Jess + Bassey | Tower Grove Park Wedding

Jess + Bassey are one-of-a-kind. They have dynamic personalities and their charisma and kindness lures you into their world. They make you feel as if you have been old pals forever. Jess is also one of those brides who allowed me to take the lead. In a whirlwind-of-a-day I really appreciate that. And she photographs so beautifully! The other day I texted Jess that I was getting close to finishing her images and that I was ob-sessed with her jawline and the way they kiss. They could seriously be kissing models.

“Love the one you hold” was a little saying attached to a feather at each place setting at the reception. So true – don’t take any moment for granted – love strong. One of my favorite moments from the wedding was when Bassey handed his Mom a flower. I could stare at that image for hours. So special.

We all are well aware of the fall weather patterns in the wonderful month of October, but I love a couple who gives an outdoor ceremony a try anyway! Rain rain rain, that’s all we had a week before the wedding, so just hours before the big day everyone was scrambling to find an indoor space to hold the ceremony, but also stay true to the vision the couple had in mind. As luck would have it or perhaps a blessing from above, the rains held off and this classic romantic bohemian wedding took place outside. That’s how I’m going to describe it.:)For the record, this is seriously one of my favorite weddings ever, just breathtakingly beautiful, and part of it could just be the couple. Thank you, Jess + Bassey.

Enjoy the photos!
