Adi + Dutch | Redemption Ranch | St. Louis Wedding Photographer

Like the Dead Sea, You’ll never sink when you are with me.
— The Lumineers

This day was magic. Magic in the sense that everything just came together like it was meant to be - from the new barn at the ranch being ready, the weather, and down to every last detail. 

As I was photographing them, I noticed how relaxed and happy they both were leading up to the ceremony. I mean, it was pouring rain, and the ceremony was outdoors. The big wooden arbor by the altar blew down in the wind, chairs were toppling over, it was a sad sight to see as the clock was ticking closer and closer to the start of the ceremony.  As all this was happening, Adi didn’t seem the least bit phased as she soaked in time with her closest gals. All the while, Dutch was enjoying the time with his groomsmen, waiting and hoping for the rain to stop, but willing to start moving the whole ceremony inside to the barn. 

We decided to take photos under the overhang to keep dry, and as we were doing pictures, the rain STOPPED….and the clouds parted. Guests were arriving, the Ushers were putting the arbor back together, drying off all the chairs and everything went according to plan…plus lots of mud. 

Heath and I were thrilled to be part of this wedding. Even if I may have accidently called 911 and had the cops show up.  Thank you for allowing us to document your special day. We loved every minute of it!

I was beyond thrilled when this family contacted me for photos. I have been photographing their sweet little family for a few years now, and it is always such a fun time with them. We do a lot of running, playing and laughing. Carlos sure knows how to keep us all on our toes and charms us every bit of the way. I just love this little guy's bigger than life personality.

For a few years now I have been wanting to do Mother's Day Minis, but never seemed to get the planning part down. This year, I did, and am SOOO GLAD I did! I absolutely LOVED all of my minis! For me personally, I feel like I am just not in that many photos with my kids. This is something that I hear often from other Moms too. I want my kids to remember how we played and snuggled together and the look of happiness and love in my eyes for them and their Dad. 

This first family was so amazing! The kids were sooooooo sweet and SOOO FUN! There was lots of fun and good energy during this whole session which made for a really awesome time together. I seriously could feel so much love between them all!
