Best of Weddings 2011

January 11th, 2012

We are so excited to have been voted as a 2012 Best of Weddings Winner for The Knot! Thank you to all of our awesome brides who left rave reviews and helped us achieve this honor as a leading wedding professional in St. Louis. The official announcement will be made later this month, but we couldn’t wait to share the news!

Now for 2012 – we are already off to a busy start! Amanda and I had an awesome time meeting brides (and some grooms) at the STL Wedding Show at America’s Center last weekend. It’s amazing how many engagements happen over the holidays!

This weekend I’m heading to New Orleans for the Digital Wedding Forum Photography Convention. I love going to seminars and continuing to learn and grow as a photographer. Plus, it’s getting cold here!

While I’m gone Amanda will be meeting with couples at Hermann Hill during The Wedding Trail on Sunday, January 15.

The following Sunday, January 22, we both will be able meet brides attending Unveiled 2012 at The Renaissance St. Louis Grand.

If you are planning a wedding, I hope we get to see you at one of these events! It is so much fun to hear your wedding plans and stories of how you got engaged!

In the next few days I’ll be posting blogs on some of the last few weddings from 2011. The end of the year was a little crazy and my blogging got pushed aside. I’ll be posting the last few weddings of the year soon. In the meantime I have put together a slideshow of some of our favorite weddings and love stories for 2011 – check it out here.

Thanks again to all our awesome clients – looking forward to another wonderful year!

November 10th, 2011

Some of my favorites from a great session with a beautiful family and their adorable little guy Tyler who just turned two. Dark brown eyes and blonde curls – could he be any cuter?

Meghan & Matt Engaged | St. Louis Wedding Photographer

November 1st, 2011

Meghan & Matt had their first date on Valentine’s day on Grand. Since had gone to the Gelateria for desert we thought it would be the perfect spot to start their engagement session.

From there we headed to Tower Grove Park just as the sun was starting to set for some beautiful late afternoon shots in the park.

Matt happens to be from Chicago and is as much a Cubs fan as Meghan is a Cardinal fan so we had to do a few shots in their rival jerseys.

What a sweet couple – I’m looking so forward to your wedding Thanksgiving weekend!

Rachel & Brian Married | St. Louis Wedding Photographer

October 25th, 2011

Rachel & Brian’s wedding day at Riverbend Chapel in Washington was amazing. This is such a beautiful location and the weather that day could not have been more perfect all the way to the beautiful sunset over the river at the end of the day. Rachel was a gorgeous bride and the wedding party was so much fun! I am so happy I was able to be a part of the special day! I had a hard time narrowing down my favorite shots from the day, but here are a few.

 

I love that Rachel & her sister Sarah did the alterations to the dress themselves! You girls did such an amazing job!

You girls have grown into such beautiful women both inside and out – your mom would be so proud!

Mason had a great view for mom and dad’s first look before the ceremony.

Congratulations Rachel & Brian!

I met Mike & Amy last December while they were visiting St. Louis for the holidays. The currently live in Southern California, but planned their wedding in St. Louis to be near friends and family.

They traveled in style in a vintage Bentley to their reception at Maggianos in Brentwood. It was a beautiful day from the emotional first look to the acapella choir Amy surprised Mike with! Here are a few favorite shots from their amazing day.

Circus Image Winner | St. Louis Photographer

September 29th, 2011

I’m so excited my image from the circus titled “Just Missed” won first place in the photojournalism category at St. Louis Camera Club last night. I took the image at the Moolah Shrine Circus in St. Charles. Wow, and I just realized I posted to my blog two days in a row – maybe I’m finally about to get caught up from vacation! Now, back to editing.

Our Trip To Yellowstone | Travel and nature photography

September 28th, 2011

Bob and I just got back from an amazing trip to Yellowstone with Austin Lehman Adventures.  I can’t imagine a better way to see Yellowstone for the first time. We were able to relax and really enjoy ourselves thanks to our wonderful tour guides Jeff & Tatiana! They took such great care of us and were full of surprises! We’ll always remember the fun we had and treasure the new friendships with others in our group. Everything was so beautiful some of these shots look fake, but I took them all except for a few when we were on the rafts. Here’s a video of some of my favorite images.

Bobby + Colleen | St. Louis Wedding Photographer

August 10th, 2011

Bobby & Colleen have been friends since middle school, but did not start dating until college. It’s easy to see they are not only very much in love, but also great friends! Their ceremony was in the beautiful Most Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Eureka. After the ceremony we braved the St. Louis summer heat and had a great time doing photos in Forest Park before heading to their reception at Moulin. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day.

 

Congratulations Bobby & Colleen!
