Ashlynn & Bryen Wedding | St. Charles Wedding Photographer

June 30th, 2011

Being a part of Ashlynn & Bryen’s wedding day was such a pleasure! They are the sweetest couple and their love for each other is so obvious. The beautiful ceremony took place at the St. Charles Conservatory. We did a few photos in Old Town St. Charles immediately after the ceremony, but it was so ridiculously hot, they decided on an air conditioned limo ride. We traveled to New Town St. Charles and had a great time as the weather began to cool. We were able to finish with some shots at Boulevard Park just before the rain started and they headed off to their party with family & friends.

 

I love to turn around and see the look on the groom’s face as his beautiful bride walks down the aisle – makes my heart skip a beat!

Congratulations Ashlynn & Bryen!

Nv Dance Force | St. Charles Dance Photographer

June 29th, 2011

I always love working with the dancers at Nv Dance Force! Last year we sweltered in the heat at Forest Park, and this year we started out in the cold rain in Old Town St. Charles. But, no matter the weather, the dancers are troupers! We finished with some groups outside around the studio, set up in doors for a few days, and finally got some great stage shots at the Showcase on June 18. Here are a few of my favorites.

Thank Heaven For Little Girls | St. Charles Family Photographer | Hermann Family Photographer

June 21st, 2011

I had the pleasure of photographing two great families recently. The Wunderlich’s at their home near Hermann and The Bushong’s in Old Town St. Charles. Both families have two adorable little girls. The girls are all so sweet – I can’t stop smiling as I go through the photos from their sessions!

Grass in your toes is the funniest thing!

Center Stage Dance Academy| St. Peters Dance Photographer

June 16th, 2011

After so many years of practically living in the dance studio, I always enjoy any opportunity I get to hang out in a dance studio. I recently got the chance to spend some time at Center Stage Academy of Dance to photograph their dancers. The students, parents, and teachers were awesome and the photo shoots stayed right on schedule! Here are a few of my personal favorites from the week (It was so hard to choose!). An email with details on accessing the galleries will go to all parents by Saturday, June 18. Thanks for a great week!

Did I mention Edward & Jacob were there?

Cool tap costumes that lit up! We did these shots in the dark – a new experience!

Here’s a sample of a custom designed collage. Please contact me directly cathy@cathyhartmanphotography.com for details.

Dancers Scott & Melissa

June 7th, 2011

I love sessions with dancers, and this session with Scott & Melissa was no exception! Scott was one of my students many years ago. He met his wife, Melissa while dancing on a cruise ship. They both now dance in Myrtle Beach. It was so much fun to hang out with them and their daughter Molly to get these shots.

What fun – jumping with mom & dad.

And rolling down the hill with dad.

Thanks Scott & Melissa for a great shoot!
