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.beautiful-mess-photo_0269beautiful-mess-photo_0267 beautiful-mess-photo_0268beautiful-mess-photo_0270 beautiful-mess-photo_0271 beautiful-mess-photo_0272 beautiful-mess-photo_0273 beautiful-mess-photo_0274 beautiful-mess-photo_0275 beautiful-mess-photo_0277 beautiful-mess-photo_0278beautiful-mess-photo_0282beautiful-mess-photo_0283 beautiful-mess-photo_0276beautiful-mess-photo_0280beautiful-mess-photo_0284 beautiful-mess-photo_0285beautiful-mess-photo_0279

We shot Bridget and Jonah's summer wedding just outside St. Louisa at Willoughby Heritage Farms.  The couples wedding day vision was carried out by the most talented and creative Allissa Reimer.  Allissa is owner of one of St. Louis' top event planners, Style Altar'd.  Her flower arrangements set off the outdoor elegance perfectly. Her team turned the barn into a candlelit and colorful haven.   Allissa even officiated the ceremony.  Bridget was the image of vintage chic with her low cut back dress, classic updo and birdcage veil.  Jonah mastered his details with with a white linen suit, frosted cerulean bowtie, and his JORD watch.  The bridesmaids carried balloons instead of bouquets and the the newlyweds sent their promises into the sky after the vows were said. The day was complete with a old fashioned barn dance with hugs and laughter that truly celebrated the making of this gorgeous couple. beautiful-mess-photo_0212beautiful-mess-photo_0213beautiful-mess-photo_0214beautiful-mess-photo_0216 beautiful-mess-photo_0217beautiful-mess-photo_0218 beautiful-mess-photo_0219beautiful-mess-photo_0222beautiful-mess-photo_0223beautiful-mess-photo_0225 beautiful-mess-photo_0226 beautiful-mess-photo_0228beautiful-mess-photo_0227 beautiful-mess-photo_0229 beautiful-mess-photo_0230beautiful-mess-photo_0232 beautiful-mess-photo_0233beautiful-mess-photo_0252beautiful-mess-photo_0246 beautiful-mess-photo_0234 beautiful-mess-photo_0235 beautiful-mess-photo_0236 beautiful-mess-photo_0237beautiful-mess-photo_0238 beautiful-mess-photo_0242beautiful-mess-photo_0244 beautiful-mess-photo_0245beautiful-mess-photo_0247beautiful-mess-photo_0249 beautiful-mess-photo_0250beautiful-mess-photo_0256 beautiful-mess-photo_0257 beautiful-mess-photo_0258 beautiful-mess-photo_0259 beautiful-mess-photo_0260beautiful-mess-photo_0248 beautiful-mess-photo_0255beautiful-mess-photo_0261 beautiful-mess-photo_0262beautiful-mess-photo_0265 beautiful-mess-photo_0266

Today was our first day of school.  Below are some of the shots from our photography shoot this morning. Arie Alex started her first day of Kindergarten.  She looked so grown up in her uniform and head band.  She was ready to go back.  She woke us up at 6:20 this morning alerting us to the fact that she couldn't reach her toothpaste.  I was ready for her to go back, but a little overcome with the fact that she will be in someone else's care eight hours a day, five days a week, for the next 13 years of her life.  It has occurred to me more than once in the whole finding a school, getting ready for school, reading school the handbook, buying school supplies, etc, "this is why my mom homeschooled us!"  I love our school.  Every time I walk into our school my heart jumps for joy.  Arie Alex thrives there, and we are blessed to be surrounded by so many wonderful families.Penn wants to be in school.  She is back at beloved Mrs. Stevens' house this week, and she took her back pack, dug up some "new shoes" and picked out a dress in similar colors to her sister's, so that she could "wear a uniform too."    Our girls are really fond of each other and I'm so happy they are becoming friends.  I really like my kids, as frustrated as I can get, and as helpless as I sometimes feel, seeing their sweet smiling faces shows me that without a doubt that their is a God who loves us, and created all that is good beautiful and true.And I am back to work.  Picture taking, photo editing, client meeting, story telling, crazy, bliss.  Get ready.  It is going to be an incredible fall.  I can't wait!

Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013A couple of Saturdays ago we traveled to the charming and hospitable town of Hillsboro, IL.  A town made of wide open spaces, high school sweethearts and everyone knows everyone.  We were met with hugs all around as if we had been part of the family all along.  They called for rain all day, but by the time the guest arrived we had a beautiful day, even a little sunshine. The only waterworks were from the groom as he saw his elegant bride walking toward him down the aisle.  After the ceremony, we headed out to the family farm to take photos in some of God's most beautiful country.  After a night full of laughter, toasts and dancing, it was hard to pull ourselves away to head back the city.   Here are some of our favorite shots.Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013   Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013
