st. louis weddings
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. :)

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. :)
