Sarah & Brennan

A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of photographing an elopement! Brennan has been traveling between St. Louis and Europe for work for the last several months, and Sarah will be joining him in November. They decided to go ahead and elope to make the work visa process easier and smoother. Sarah and Brennan will return to St. Louis next September and have a bigger wedding to celebrate with friends and family. :)

 

Kristin & Shawn

Kristin had her heart broken in college and swore she'd never love again, then she met Shawn. They met at work and a casual friendship turned into so much more. As Kristin's sister mentioned in her toast, "he taught her how to love again, they are perfect for one another." Kristin and Shawn were married at the Park Avenue Mansion, a very simple, small and intimate wedding in front of immediate family and a few close friends. Kristin and Shawn thank you for allowing me to share the evening with you! - A :)

 

Amy & Caleb

High School sweethearts + quaint small town = perfectly sweet wedding. Amy and Caleb grew up in this small town, their parents even got married in the same church. They opted not to have a wedding party, which made for a short, sweet and intimate wedding. :)

Callie & Ryan

I met Callie five years ago when I photographed her sister Chelsea's wedding. I was thrilled when Callie called and told me that she was engaged and wanted me as her wedding photographer too! Callie and Ryan could not have asked for a better day, it was gorgeous! Thank you so much for having me photograph your wedding, it was an honor to see your family again! I hope you had an amazing time in Jamaica. Thank you! - A :)

 

Natasha & Kerry / St. Louis Engagement Session

It's been an usually warm December, yet the day we shot these photos ended up being the coldest of the season. Go figure. I gotta hand it to Natasha though, she rocked that dress and didn't flinch at all. Looking at those pics you'd never guess it was 37 degrees!? Thank you guys so much, I'm excited for your May 2016 wedding. :)

Tamara & Jeff / Union Station Engagement Session

They met in their church's youth group several years ago. They were just friends at the time and after high school they each went their separate ways. Ten years later they bumped into one another and decided to catch up over coffee. During their conversation and coffee they realized that maybe there was something more than friendship and began dating. The rest as they say is history and they are now getting married! Tamara and Jeff, thanks for braving the heat with me for your engagement session. Here's hoping its a little cooler for your September wedding. :)


Crystalyn & Jonathan / Twin Oaks Winery Wedding

We have had SO much rain lately in the midwest. The day that Crystalyn and Jonathan were to get married they were calling for 100% rain...all day. This was no light rain either, we are talking torrential downpour rain. Ugh. Plans were altered and it didn't go exactly as they had hoped, but at the end of the day Crystalyn and Jonathan were still married. I'm just grateful that we did catch a small break and were able to take a few photos outside! Thank you so much C&J, I hope you're having a great time in Napa. :)
