SAM & TAYLOR | Engagement Session at Missouri Botanical Gardens

Sam and Taylor asked to have their session here at the gardens, and it was like having a personal tour guide! They knew their way around and had several favorite spots that they wanted to go to. I am so excited for their wedding this spring - it’s going to be gorgeous!

ROSEN | Family Session at Oak Knoll Park

There was laughter, snuggles, running, swinging, and chasing during the Rosen’s session! This was the third year that I’ve gotten to capture this family’s photos. I just love watching families grow up!

KEITH & SABRINA | Wedding in Washington, MO

Keith and Sabrina’s wedding was marked by a multitude of personal touches, starting out with Sabrina wearing her mom’s earrings, and her mom braiding her hair for the wedding. There wasn’t a dry eye during the sweetest Father-Daughter first look that I’ve ever had the privilege to photograph.

The family and the wedding party just gushed with joy for the newlyweds, and it was such a fun group to be around! After the wedding party portraits were finished, the bride and groom played Spikeball - in their wedding attire! The reception was graced by fantastic speeches, and once again, I cried during the Father-Daughter dance!

Thank you again, Mr. and Mrs. Kettner, for allowing me to join you for your wedding day! I hope you cherish all of these memories!

Hayter | Family Portrait Session at Shaw Nature Reserve

I got together with the Hayter family for a portrait session just a couple of weeks before Keith and Sabrina’s wedding! They had already gotten engagement photos done due to time constraints, but I really like to work with my couple before the big day, so we decided to include the whole family!

There were so many laughs and it made me super excited to be there for the wedding. The Hayter family is full of laughter and fun. Thanks for choosing me to be your photographer!

JOE & ALLI | Engaged at Brasserie in Central West End | St. Louis Engagement Photographer

Sunday brunch became quite exciting when Alli's coffee was delivered in a mug printed with pictures of her and Joe and the question, "Alli, will you marry me?" Joe thought through every detail of this proposal, and it was absolutely perfect! After Alli got a few sips of coffee, we strolled the streets of Central West End for a few engagement photos. 

The staff at Brasserie were beyond wonderful in helping to make sure everything went off without a hitch, and it made for such a cute space for it to happen! 

Also...did you know you can hide the ring box in your sock so that your girlfriend doesn't notice it bulging out of your pocket? There's your proposal tip of the day! Thanks, Joe! :-)

LANGE | Family Portraits at Schroeder Park | St. Louis Family Photographer

When Christie called me this past winter to ask about family pictures, I knew that they would be just precious. With their oldest son home from California for a short time, she wanted to make sure they got a family picture and new photos of the kids.

At the time of our call, I was holding my two-week old daughter. Christie remarked about how fast children grow, and how she just wants to freeze the time they'd have together as family this summer.  The why of my photography business is capturing photos that take you back to moments of joy. That is what energizes me, drives me to grow my business and serve my clients well. I want them to open their gallery and be grateful that they made the investment of time and money to have family pictures done. I want them to open that photo album in a year and feel that tug at their heart when they see how much their kids have grown. I want them to dust off the picture frames in 10 years, 20 years and remember the joys and the trials of raising a family. Can a photo really do all that? I believe that it can.

And so...stepping off my sentimental soapbox....without further ado, I present to you, the Lange family!! I hope that these photos captured your family well, Christie, and that you feel as though you do have a moment frozen in time from this season!

THORNHILL | Family Portraits in New Town | St. Louis Family Photographer

Even though they don't live in New Town anymore, Scott and Kaylee thought it would be fun to go back for their pictures, and oh I am SO GLAD that they did!! The canal, the pretty streets, weeping willows. It was beautiful. 

Scott and Kaylee are such dear friends, and it has been a joy to watch little Elliot in his first year of life!

MATT & STACEY | Wedding at The Red Barn in Evergreen, Colorado | St. Louis Wedding Photographer

Matt and Stacey chose to promise the rest of their lives to each other in the mountains of Colorado, surrounded by the beauty of evergreen trees, mountain peaks, and gorgeous views. You just can't find that in the Midwest! 

The entire day was "practically perfect in every way," as Mary Poppins might say. There were countless reflections of Stacey's artistic talent from handmade flower crowns, hand-painted signs, and beautiful floral displays. Their wedding felt much like a reunion, as they were surrounded by countless friends from various seasons of life, and let me tell you - all those friends had quite the dance party! The venue, The Red Barn, in Evergreen, CO was stunning - both elegant and quaint all at the same time. However, the thing that most sticks out to me as I reflect back on that day is Matt and Stacey's commitment to Christ as the foundation of their marriage. I was holding back tears as my shutter clicked through the ceremony. Their pledge to love each other like Jesus was beautiful, and I so look forward to seeing how God uses them as a couple to minister to many people in the coming years! 

Alas, I could go on. But I will end by saying that I will now be begging brides to get married in Colorado just so I could go again. :)

HARPER | First birthday portraits at Queeny Park | St. Louis Child Photographer

I first met Harper's family when her big brother was 3 months old. A couple years later and Harper arrived! I've now gotten to take both of their one year old portraits. We always sneak in a family picture and some with big brother too, of course!

Have I mentioned how much I love the Dog Museum at Queeny Park? There's so many nooks and crannies - you can find a new little corner to shoot in every single time! The stairs were perfect for the little ones and provided some entertainment and activity, while the field allowed for some running around. Oh, and my toddler-sized  bench is always a hit too!

BRAD & ARRAH | Wedding at Boone Old Peace Chapel | St. Louis Wedding Photographer

Brad and Arrah's love story is like that of the movies....randomly met while on vacation, fell in love, and got married in a quaint little chapel. The setting was perfect for their wedding, complete with ringing the church bell on their way out of the ceremony. A jar of sand and shells from the beach when they met sat on the guestbook table, and they offered 3 types of cupcakes because Arrah loves cake. So brides, this is your permission to have what you want - it's your wedding! 

I wish you all the best, Brad and Arrah! What an honor it was to witness this special day. May the Lord greatly bless your marriage, family, and your new life together!
