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,

Pearl

This past May, Heath and I photographed a wedding of one of the sweetest couple's ever, Amy and Jerry. I had no clue that their friends who were present at this wedding were on the brink of engagement.

Enter Adi and Dutch. 

I must say when Adi contacted me I was instantly thrilled. Based on how awesome Amy and Jerry were, I just knew Adi and Dutch would be equally as awesome. For the most part, awesome people keep awesome friends. Its a real thing. 

When I met with Adi and Dutch we instantly hit it off. And hearing their sweet proposal story of how Dutch proposed to Adi underneath a willow tree, I just knew we need to find a great willow tree to set the stage for their engagement photos. I am beyond thrilled with how awesome our session was together. We had the best time, and I am so excited for their wedding!

Happily in LOVE! | Main Street St. Charles | St. Louis Engagement Photographer

There is only one happiness in life to love and to be loved.

When you think of spending the rest of your life with someone, you hope that someone can make you laugh. A LOT. Being with Matt and Gabby was awesome. I have no doubt in my mind that their days together will be filled with lots of love and a whole lotta laughter. I am so excited for their wedding. I can't even imagine how much fun it will be! :-)
