Missouri Botanical Garden Engagement Session | Holly and Matt | Holly Dawn Photography

So when I met with Holly and Matt, I felt like it was the six degrees of Kevin Bacon. We had so much in common and were so similar besides the obvious that Holly and I share a name! It was like reminiscing with old friends. I had such a great time with them during their engagement session and can not wait to shoot their wedding in June even though Matt is an Iowa and Cubs fan. Ha! Enjoy Holly and Matt’s engagement session at the Missouri Botanical Gardens.


Busch Stadium | Old Rock House | Saint Louis Wedding Photographer | Katie and Kevin’s New Year’s Eve Wedding

Meet Kevin and Katie, an awesome and fun couple who decided to tie the knot on New Year’s Eve 2014. The festivities began at the Missouri Athletic Club where Katie got ready. Her dress was simply spectacular. Lots of bling and lots of tulle! She nailed it. Katie and Kevin did a first look. I love first looks, they are so sweet. In true Kevin and Katie style it was laid back and perfect for them. It was a super cold day in St. Louis on New Year’s Eve so we wanted to grab some quick outdoor pics. That quick spot was Busch Stadium. We got to go out on the field too. That was such a neat experience for me! Katie works for the Cardinal organization so Fred Bird had to be there! He jumped right in with the wedding party. He was probably the warmest one there. Katie and Kevin had their reception at the Old Rock House in St. Louis. It was a perfect place to celebrate these two as well as ring in the new year. A great time was had by all. Katie and Kevin know how to throw a party! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your special day. I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness. Happy New Year!



Family Photography | Saint Charles, MO | Agre Family

Meet the Agre family!  This family was so much fun to get to know.  They wanted pictures down on Main Street in order to capture the style of the area.  They are a Coast Guard Family and want their family pics to  depict where they are stationed at at the time.  Being a sentimentalist myself, I LOVE this idea.  Their kiddos were so cute.  Easton had the most gorgeous eyes.  Addison loved the camera.  A photographer’s dream.  Thanks for letting me capture your time here in Saint Charles!
