Kim and Jeremy are big Disney fans and so it was no surprise that their day was filled with so much love and laughter. Their wedding was nothing short of a real life fairy-tale. The couple did a great job finding so many unique little touches to incorporate their personalities into the fun. The individually written vows were emotional and heartfelt. The sundae bar was a big hit! And everyone loved getting out there to dance and celebrate. My favorite part of the day had to be after the ceremony. The rain stopped and we were able to get some great photos with the couple and family just outside the main room on the patio. And seeing the couple together – nothing makes me smile more than seeing two people so in love! Kim and Jeremy thank you for being flexible with photos inside – I love that we were able to get creative with some indoor photos and then we hustled outside to get great outdoor ones once the rain stopped. It was a truly magical day! We wish you two all the very best and know that dreams do come true!

Meet Cute Kate!

Category: Portraits | June 23rd, 2016

This sweet little family has grown by two feet! Newborn Kate is just too cute. And her sister Nora isn’t quite sure about the new addition. It was so great to see Laurel and Mike again and to celebrate their second child. Mike is surrounded by girls! My favorite part of the session had to be singing Five Little Monkey Jumping on the Bed and the fun expressions we received! Too much fun! If you want to  see how much Kate looks like her sister be sure to check out her blog post from 2014.

Adam and the Girls!

It is so fun to see this sweet family again and to see how much the girls have grown and changed! Sydney is 2 and Sierra is 6 months! They are too cute and I just know they will be best friends who get into trouble together (kind of like my sister and I did)!

Congratulations to Melissa and Jared on their one year anniversary! Their wedding a year ago was such an incredible day. Their ceremony was downtown at the historic St. Louis Catholic Church. Their fun reception was at The Madison, Emerald Ballroom. The day started with a little rain as we photographed them getting ready but as we headed to the park for their first look we hoped for the best. It actually turned out to be a beautiful day and we were able to take photos at the park and on the Purple People Bridge. To see more of their photos be sure to check out their blog post!
