St. Louis Wedding Photography | Cheshire St. Louis | Alaina and Chris

I’m so excited to have Alaina and Chris on the blog today. They had such a fun bridal party. I loved getting to know them all and to help celebrate Alaina and Chris with them. The weather was absolutely gorgeous too! The reception was super fun. Alaina had surprised Chris with having the St. Louis Blues mascot, Louie come to the reception. The guests loved meeting him. They also did an amazing dessert bar with Cold Stone Creamery. If you have read my bio on my website, you know that I am obsessed with peanut butter cup ice-cream. It was a wonderful end to a wonderful day. Thank you so much Alaina and Chris for letting me capture your special day. I wish you both a life time of happiness! Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Niedbalski!

St. Charles Family Photographer | Extended Family Session |The Willbrands & Family

I had the lovely privilege to photograph the Willbrands Family prior to celebrating their parents very special wedding anniversary! What an amazing family that they have built through the years. It’s so neat to see how families grow just because two people fell in love many, many years ago:)I also got to photograph the Fleming, Kotsis, Bridges, and Gresco families. Thanks guys for spending an insanely hot afternoon with me and for letting me capture your gorgeous families!

Saint Charles Wedding Photography | Wine Country Gardens | Lauren and Gordon

I’m so excited to have Lauren and Gordon’s wedding on the blog today. They are such a sweet and fun couple and their wedding was an absolute blast. They are both high school math teachers who found love while working in the same school. Their students thought it was pretty cool that they were getting married. We managed to dodge some major storms throughout the day and actually was blessed with an amazing sunset for their ceremony. Seriously we got some gorgeous light!

Thank you so much Lauren and Gordon for allowing me to be a part of your special day. May you both have a lifetime of happiness and many more memories to create. I’m so excited to see what the future holds in store for you!

Busch Stadium Engagement | St. Louis Photographer | Kristin & Matt

I had so much fun shooting Kristin and Matt’s engagement session. We started off at Busch stadium. I just love sessions at the stadium. I love the Cards and of course I met my husband at a Card’s game. The Cards are extra special to Kristin and Matt as well.

We finished up the session at the Jewel Box in Forest Park.  We pretty much had that area to ourselves which was amazing!

Thanks Kristin and Matt for rocking the blog today. I am excited to shot your wedding in October. Stay tuned!


Saint Charles, MO | Newborn Photography | Baby Hadley

I am so excited to have baby Hadley on the blog today. She is a very special baby to photograph as I had the privilege to shoot her parents wedding two years ago.  I just love seeing my couples become parents!

Hadley is also the biggest baby I have gotten to photograph. She was just a dream to cuddle. Her rolls were just precious!

Thank you Heather and Chris for letting me continue to capture your special memories:)
