Jessie and Victor :: Married

Jessie and Victor’s wedding was full…

…full of laughter and tears and hugs and kisses. And more laughter and tears.

And maybe a wee bit of rain.


It was such an honor to photograph this wedding for a family that is near and dear to my heart!   Jessie called me earlier this year with the exciting news that she was engaged, and I was so thrilled that all the stars aligned and I was able to photograph her wedding.  But I was even MORE thrilled that this brilliant girl had found such a wonderful man who clearly treasures her to be her husband.  What a match made in heaven!

And they had a pretty fancy, good-lookin man officiate their wedding.  More on that later.  I promise I’m not a creep.


No way was a little bit of rain going to stop this day from being beautiful.


We love this family and have been friends with them practically since the day I moved to St. Louis!


And no way was a little bit of rain going to stop Jess’s dream of an outdoor wedding from happening.


It was pretty chilly and rainy, but Jess just could not contain her joy… and it was contagious!


oh hey.  Check out that pastor.  What a fine looking man.

(he’s my husband.  See.  I’m not a creep.)



These groomsmen stood behind the altar to make sure the candles stayed lit.  Now THAT is dedication.  024025026027028029

Congratulations, Jess and Victor!

Emily and Trent :: Married

Emily and Trent were married at one of the most beautiful churches in the midwest on beautiful early fall day, and we were so honored to photograph such a gorgeous day for two people that we really enjoyed getting to know.  There were Jimmy Choo’s, sparkly table linens, and even a visit from the sweetest little puppy.  So many congrats to you both, Emily and Trent!



The St. Louis Ballpark Hilton ballroom was stunning, with flawless details coordinated by Ashley Rath and her team from Dishy Events.

Emily and Nick :: Married

Emily and Nick had their wedding on a fall day that was like a breath of fresh air.  And I couldn’t have been more excited to photograph this classically beautiful wedding.  They chose two of the loveliest venues in the city and couldn’t stop smiling all day, which made my job pretty darn enjoyable.
