Destination Wedding Contest 2012

I had such a positive response from this contest when I did it last year, so I decided to do it again for 2012! Here's how it works. If you (or someone you know) is planning a destination wedding...and by destination wedding I mean ANY location outside the state of Missouri. Yes, this includes any state in the US and international locations as well. The bride and groom pay for my travel expenses (flight/hotel/rental) and I shoot the wedding for free. Do the math...it's a pretty sweet deal. If you are interested please contact me and tell me a little bit about your wedding plans....but do it quickly b/c I am only giving this offer to 2 couples. :)

Brittany & Chris / St. Charles Engagement Shoot

One of the things I love about being a wedding photographer is hearing the stories of my clients and how they met.  I'm always intrigued to hear about those who were high school sweethearts, then there are those like Brittany and Chris.  They have been lifelong friends and met in elementary school! Yes, they were holding hands on the playground WAY back in the day! ;)  They grew up together, continued to be close through high school and even followed each other to Mizzou.  Upon graduating from college they knew that it was time to take their relationship to the next level.  In October they will confirm their lifelong devotion to each other in front of their family and close friends.  I am so excited and honored that I will be present for such an amazing event!  This past Sunday we met up for their engagement session in downtown St. Charles, here are a few of my faves...

both of them have infectious smiles :)

piggy back rides are fun :)


probably my fave from the session

I was a 2nd Shooter... / St. Louis Wedding Photographer

Every so often I get the opportunity to 2nd shoot with some fabulous photographers! Back in January I had the chance to shoot with Katie Day of Katie Day Photography. I had followed her blog for a while and jumped at the chance when she asked me to shoot with her! I had a great time and got some beautiful shots! Thank you Katie, I hope to work with you again sometime! :)

Henry is 3 weeks old! / St. Louis Baby Photpgrapher

I'd like to introduce everyone to Henry. Isn't he just as cute as a button?! I had the special honor of being present at Henry's birth and was super excited when his mommy asked me to come take more pictures after they got home. Henry is now nearly 3 weeks old and more alert than ever! We also got to take a few pics with his 4 older brothers...they love Henry so much! :)

the band of brothers :)

Lily is ONE...and celebrating Valentine's Day! :)

As of mother with a daughter of my own, I am all too aware of how fast the first year (and every other year) goes by so quickly.  I have been photographing Miss Lily since she was 1 week old and its hard to believe that she's one already! Her mom also wanted to do a mini Valentine session with two of her buddies from Little Gym. Wow. This was interesting to say the least. I had a "studio" set up in my dining room and had them all over yesterday for the shoot. Picture three 1 year olds running around, oh and Maggie my 2 yr old running around with them. Yes, it was quite an adventure...but we pulled it off and got some cute pictures before naps were needed. (and I'm talking about myself needing a nap!) *HA* Happy Birthday Lily, I hope you have an amazing Dora party next week! :)

she wasn't really diggin' the tutu & cried until we brought out the cupcake ;)

wait...where'd the cupcake go?

love this one...and love that you can see it all over her face in the background! ;)

3 little monkeys!

she knows she's cute! ;)
