People tell me that they choose us to be their wedding photographer because they made a real connection with our images. Out photographs tells a story. There is real emotion in the pictures. To bring that feeling to our images, we must first make a connection with you, our clients. Spending time getting to know you and hearing your story fuels us to bring that story to life. Korey and Aany were so authentic in every piece of their wedding day, that capturing their adventure, was one of the easiest connections I’ve ever made. It was impossible not to be pulled in by the peace and unity of their celebration. Of course, the fully loaded taco bar by Seed Sprout Spoon was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever eaten. Cheers.

I thought I would take a break from the heat this week to feature one of our favorite fall weddings. Greg and Mary threw an elegant, fall bash, on a cool November weekend. Classic black and white with hints of gold fit together perfectly in the historic Chase Park Plaza. Take a look at some of our favorite moments from their wedding story.

We were thrilled when we heard that our longtime friend D’Arcy wrote to say she was getting married, and they had picked the perfect venue. We love photographing winery weddings. They are simple and romantic, the landscape offering some of Missouri’s best backdrops for such a beautiful occasion. Among some of the best winery event spaces is Chandler Hill Vinyard. It was an honor to celebrate with Dean and D’Arcy and capture all their personal and beautiful details.
