This was one of those weddings that I just didn’t want to end. Everywhere I turned there were faces so full of joy and love. Every detail of the day had a personal touch – their beautiful vows, their best friend who officiated the ceremony, the Bosnian rosemary on the tables, her grandmother’s cake topper, the hand-lettered menu and place cards, her sister’s amazing video tribute, and all of the people that traveled to witness these two commit themselves to one another. This is love. This is why I love what I do.

I’m so happy to share these images from Lauren and Matt’s beautiful St. Louis wedding. They exchanged their vows at the gorgeous St. Ambrose Church on “the hill” and danced into the night in the historic Khorassan ballroom at the Chase. They even got a visit from Mizzou’s Truman the tiger. This lovely wedding was also featured on Style Me Pretty. Congratulations Lauren and Matt! Here’s to many, many years of love and happiness!

    Photographers in Aruba - Love this wedding coverage. Love the black & white of the dip at the end of the first dance. Great capture!

Four years ago, Katie was a bridesmaid in one of the first weddings I photographed. She promised me that someday she would have me photograph her wedding. Well, that day finally came and what a beautiful day it was. From the amazing time we had together during their engagement session in New York City to their incredible wedding day in St. Louis, it has been such a pleasure becoming friends with Katie and Chris. Katie, thank you so much for staying true to your promise – I am so grateful to have been a part of your day.
