The best is yet to come.

I love the sort of sessions where things just flow, and my stomach hurts after from laughing so much. I cannot tell you what a blast I had hanging with these two. I also cannot tell you how much hair envy I am having here. Almost glad I don’t have to sit and stare at these photos for hours on end anymore. LOL! No, but really, this girl has the most beautiful hair! ;-)

They drove in from New York! Yep, that’s right, all the way from New York to have photos done out here in beautiful Missouri! I mean, I guess she is from here too, so that helps. Lol. But I still felt incredibly honored that they drove all the way out here, even if they were already going to make the trip.

I love that they are both educators, lovers of dogs and old school rap, and very genuine, good hearted people. Their love and affection towards each other is so sweet and filled me up with all the warm fuzzies.

The end of me working on this session is bittersweet. I loved the session and post processing so much, and feels like I am saying a goodbye to a dear friend. But I am also doing a happy dance now that I can share these images! Because, I am in love with them!!!!!

Kansas Farm Love

When Breann reached out to me, I just knew that we would instantly click. She’s genuine, fun and has the hugest heart.

For her Engagement pictures, they wanted them to be on her Grandparents Farm in Kansas with their dog Sammy. Being a dog person, I really love it when people bring their dogs to sessions.

Being on this farm where generations of her family lived was amazing. I loved hearing a little of the history from her grandmother, and loved that she chose to do her pictures at such a special place.

This all combined with beautiful weather, and the most fun, sweet, playful and full of love couple made for such a magical evening!

This past weekend my sister came to town with her boyfriend and I just couldn't resist taking a few photos of them. I mean, they are so cute! I love seeing her so happy and so in love! #younglove #swoon

I do.... | St. Louis Wedding Photographer

After a 7 year engagement, these two extremely sweet people FINALLY decided to say "I do" on a beautiful and glorious Fall day. 

I first met Rhonda a few years ago when I was photographing her home she was selling. We instantly clicked, and even had me in tears during that shoot. For the record, I don't cry that easy, unless I am watching "This is Us" or "Greys Anatomy", then good lord I am a mess. Anyway, from this meeting, I was quite taken by her. She is such a special person. A ray of light. I am honored to know her and even more honored I was able to document her special day!! 

Thank you Rhonda and Brian for letting me witness your beautiful wedding. I wish you a lifetime of happiness! 

XO,
