I can't say enough about the warmth and joy of this fantastic couple. Nina and Orie both serve as St. Louis City police officers and I am grateful for their dedication and all they do to serve our amazing city. They have been genuine and kind, considerate and fun, from the first time we met. The love and commitment they have to each other is a lovely thing to witness. I can't wait to show off their wedding photos! Orie and Nina are beautiful on the inside and out and it has been a pleasure being their photographer.

It was an honor to meet Timothy and Jin on their cross country, road trip. One of the stops on their summer adventure was St. Louis. They are getting married at home, in China later this year. Here are some of the highlights from their engagement shoot.

We are thrilled and excited to be shooting Sam and Liz's St. Louis Wedding next fall. This week we met up at the Missouri Botanical Gardens to shoot part one of their beautiful, winter, engagement session. Here are some of the favorites.

To escape the mid July swelter we don here in St. Louis, I took Brett and Melissa to the Missouri History Museum. We shot the first part of their engagement surrounded in light and simplistic beauty of the museum, then ventured in the shade, and heat of Forest Park. Brett and Melissa brought classic bicycles, which added a special charm and a real glimpse of who they are as a couple. I'm excited to be shooting their wedding this fall. I can't wait to capture more of their easy smiles and see bicycle themed elements of what I'm sure will be a beautiful day.

It never stops taking my breath away, those tucked away Illinois towns. The vastness of the beauty and goodness of the food and the greatness of the hospitality. Alto Pass, IL is no acceptation. Greg and Sarah invited me to shoot their engagement session in a place that means so much to them. Sarah is the events coordinator at Von Jakob Winery & Brewery where the rolling hills of southern Illinois flourish, and the food is worth every bit of the drive. Fall was in full bloom, colors sweeping the spectrum. Here are some of my favorites from that amazing fall day!
