Wedding Photographer | Max & Chelsea, November 4, 2017 at Touch of Nature Environmental Center, Makanda, IL | engagement on the SIU campus
February 11, 2018 02:12 PM Blog
Max and Chelsea's wedding took place last November 4, right at the peak of the beautiful fall season. Here in Southeast Missouri, we didn't seem to get much pretty color but this part of Illinois sure had a lot of pretty yellows, oranges, and reds. And here, at Touch of Nature Environmental Center in Makanda, overlooking the lake, it was absolutely perfect.The girls readied themselves in one of the hotel rooms and I had a great opportunity to get some pictures of Chelsea's beautiful ......
Ste. Genevieve Wedding Photographer | Levi & Chelsea, September 23, 2017 on their farm
February 1, 2018 12:13 PM Blog
I think there is something really special about having a wedding on the place where you intend to grow old, which is exactly what Levi and Chelsea did. I had the pleasure of visiting their farm when we did engagement pictures the fall before and it was lovely then, but after the transformation for the wedding, wow! The barn was made into so much more, it was absolutely gorgeous, the use of pallet wood was especially wonderful, as well as the doors in the back (which you'll see below) ......

Fredericktown Wedding Photographer | Ben & Jessica, August 26, 2017 at Dodson Orchards
September 30, 2017 12:01 AM Blog
What a gorgeous wedding! I truly loved every minute of this and cannot speak highly enough of the venue! Jessica and Ben tied the knot August 26, 2017 at Dodson Orchards, Fredericktown, MO. This place was beautiful! There was an outside ceremony in front of a unique and lovely arbor followed by a barn ceremony with a massive dance floor area and all of the shabby chic decorations you could ask for -- without going overboard! And oh, the lights! I discover ......
Wedding Photographer | Michael & Natalie, July 1, 2017, at First Baptist Church Festus-Crystal City
August 18, 2017 09:28 AM Blog
Michael and Natalie met in what felt like an unlikely place and developed their relationship out of a great friendship. I have known Michael for many years and it was an honor to be there as they tied that knot to start their life together. It was a beautiful day, and thankfully not very hot (you know me).First things first, everyone arrived at First Baptist Church Festus-Crystal City about the same time and finished getting ready. I took the time to get some shots of various d ......
Ste. Genevieve Wedding Photographer | Jeff and Gabby, June 17, 2017 at Treasured Memories
August 1, 2017 09:32 PM Blog
Jeff and Gabby tied the knot on June 17, 2017. It was horribly hot but the day itself was so beautiful. Actually, everything was beautiful - the venue, the flowers, the ceremony, and of course, the couple.I started the day arriving at Gabby's parents house to find all of the girls ready to go. I was able to get a lovely shot of the ring with her shoes, but everything else was already down at the venue, so after a few shots outside, we headed on down. Inside the venue, we ......
Ashley: you know, just a bride in a creek
May 5, 2017 11:10 PM Blog
Meet Ashley :)Last August, on a strangely cold-for-August day, Ashley braved the rain and cold and hopped in the creek wearing none other than a wedding dress and flower crown. I love it! This is the second time I've gotten in the water this much to get some epic photos. This is, however, the first time I did not ruin a camera and lens doing it. Score one for me!This was seriously so much fun and it gave me an opportunity to get some great promo photos. W ......

St. Louis Wedding & Engagement Photographer | Angelina & Patrick
June 13, 2016 11:17 PM Blog
I absolutely loved working with these two! Engagement photos were taken on Main Street St Charles and points nearby and we sure got some good stuff. Angelina & Patrick were so adorable together and their love for one another is obvious. They gave me some of my favorite engagement photos to date.The wedding, if you can believe it, was even more beautiful. I also had the privilege of capturing moments of Kenyan tradition that I had not gotten to before. Two o ......
Festus Wedding & Engagement Photographer | Brittany & Andrew
May 5, 2016 09:10 PM Blog
Today's post is brought to you by this entirely adorable couple, Brittany & Andrew. I was completely honored to be able to photograph their engagement session and wedding for them and we are more than pleased with the results.For their engagement session, last fall, Brittany & Andrew headed out to my place and we played around in the woods for a while. The meeting of the minds, the three of us also came up with what has become one of my favorite engagement photos ever. ......
Festus Wedding Photographer | David & Sarah
February 9, 2016 09:02 PM Blog
Sarah and David tied the knot on May 23, 2015 at a private location and had their reception at TBC Venue in Pevely, MO. Sarah wrote on her information form that she and David met during her first week of college, on an elevator! I think that sounds just like a movie. ;-)As you scroll down and view the photos, you'll notice a large white sheet contraption during the beginning of the ceremony. That was actually an ingenious invention created to ensure that David didn't see ......
Arnold Wedding Photographer | Tony & Jess
May 12, 2015 09:42 AM Blog
Tony & Jess had been together for about five years when they tied the knot last Thanksgiving weekend. The Christmas decorations at their church were in full swing making this my first Christmasy wedding. ;-)It was a lovely warm day, however, and we were able to do lots of photos outside the church (can you say bubbles??) and at a nearby park as the sun was starting to drop. I love the dark purple dresses and they really shone outside. I also captured some of my favorite ceremony photos to da ......
Farmington Wedding Photographer | Matt & Tracy
March 1, 2015 10:07 AM Blog
Matt and Tracy were married on a beautiful - though quite warm - day in September of last year. This was the ultimate wedding, seriously. So beautiful and unique, I absolutely fell in love with the bouquets, for example... buttons and bling!We first met for a few getting ready pics of the girls and some decorations and people waiting around the lobby of the ceremony venue. Once everyone was ready, we did a First Look with the bride and groom, after doing one with her and her father. Several tear ......
Festus Wedding Photographer | Megan & Cary
February 5, 2015 11:05 AM Blog
You've seen these two here before, with their engagement photos. Finally, here are some of the wedding photos.This was a beautiful September day last year. Gorgeous skies and nice temperatures. Megan and Cary had a lovely ceremony following a First Look in Pevely. After the receiving line and family formals in the church, we headed off to Grace Presbyterian in Crystal City for the bridal party session. We had a great time and the wedding party was able to entertain themselves with some radio con ......
Unique Bridal Bouquet - Tracy's Family Heirlooms
October 16, 2014 11:30 PM Blog
I just wanted to brag on my bride a little bit. She had the most unique bouquets I have ever seen to date. I love them! I felt like the little girl in Despicable Me getting to photograph them (It's so fluffy, I'm gonna die!) except that they're not fluffy, they're just so totally awesome I was going to die. I seriously love these. AND, I even get to copy some of her own words from the equally unique programs from the day: The bride's bouquet includes her Great-Gr ......

St. Louis Wedding Photographer | Jason & Jessica
April 9, 2014 09:15 AM Blog
This wedding ended up being my last of 2013, bringing with it a new record for weddings shot in a year for me as well. It was also a bit different for me as I was contracted as a last minute second shooter with someone else after the original wedding photographer canceled on this couple.It was also one of my secret photographer dreams come true: shoot a wedding at the Jewel Box in St. Louis! I have always loved the Jewel Box, maybe in part because it seemed like it was also really special to my ......
Hillsboro Wedding Photographer | Julian & Corrinne
January 5, 2014 01:28 PM Blog
No, this certainly hasn't been any time very recently, ha! (Snow, anyone???) I had the privilege of shooting Julian & Corrinne's wedding in October of last year (wow, did I just have to say last year??) and it was certainly very beautiful and they were both a pleasure to work with.I really enjoyed the Pinterest feel of this wedding. Everything from a couch made out of square straw bales to cross sections of logs used as the cake base to Mason jar drinking cups gifted to the guests. It was al ......
Arnold Wedding Photographer | Jeff & Laurel
November 12, 2013 07:50 AM Blog
Ok, so I was super stoked (is that word still used?) to be able to shoot Laurel & Jeff's wedding back in September. Not only do I love outdoor September/October weddings, but I finally got to shoot one at one of the greatest parks ever: Bee Tree in Arnold, MO. I know, I'm a geek.There was a lovely ceremony down at the fountain, complete with the bride being walked down by her son, very sweet. Then a receiving line full of smiling family and friends followed by bridal and family pictures, then fi ......
