N+J, a stylized wedding shoot

BW

Nikole and Jeremy had the right idea, a stylized retro-inspired wedding photoshoot! If you are wanting Pinterest-worthy wedding photos without worrying about loading up the bridal party or hungry wedding guests waiting at your reception venue, this is the route to go!

You may remember this lovely lady from her Pin-Up shoot earlier this year. Working with Nikole is this photog’s dream…she is all for vintage shoots that include her adorable 4-legged pals. In reality, photographing pets on the actual wedding day can be a bit of a challenge. During this shoot, these pups did really well since unlike a usual wedding, a drunk uncle was not attempting to pet them.  Lucky for us, we were able to park a sweet red Thunderbird in front of an old mechanic shop in downtown St. Louis. The backdrop was the last perfect touch to this ode to the 50’s.

Congrats on your marriage and amazing photos, Nikole and Jeremy.

Meg and Nick

Meg’s been planning this wedding in her mind since she was a little girl. The day finally came! Her prince, Nick, came and swept her off her feet. Well actually it’s probably more like he came and let her have her own two feet and a voice to boot and she fell madly in love. Hey it’s a 2015 princess story. Together they planned the perfect wedding at a place where they share a mutual interest- in Forest Park at the Highland Golf Club House.

Forest Park of course has so many wonderful places to take photos.  We have had non stop rain for what feels like months, but somehow they lucked out and had full sun! So we seized the opportunity and tromped all over the park. It’s always hard to narrow down the photos to just a few of my favorites so that I don’t bombard the post with a ridiculous amount of photos. So here you go. Just a few top choices.

These lucky grooms received one of my wedding photography packages as a wedding present.  Talk about a great wedding present! Everyone at the ceremony could feel the love between the grooms that beautiful day. These two love birds have been together for over 20 years and decided to tie the knot at the Beall Mansion in Alton, Illinois.

Here’s to years of wedded bliss, gentlemen. Congrats!

Matt and Kate + 8

Eight Bridesmaids and eight groomsmen that is. A big bridal party yes, but we all had fun carting around St. Louis getting pics everywhere from St. Louis Union Station, LaFayatte Square Park, Benton Park Cafe, and the final destination for the wedding and ceremony, Third Degree Glass Factory. No torrential down pours were going to stop us! Matt and Kate are a beautiful couple and made a beautiful bride and groom. I am so happy to have met them and have been privileged enough to be a part of their special day. It was a spectacular wedding full of wonderful people to share it with them.

Nick proposed to Meg on the Arch Grounds, so it seemed proper to do a St. Louis-centered engagement shoot. We captured some amazing photos around town throughout the day. I was pretty excited to find out Nick and Meg wanted to include their pups in the shoot. Nick and Meg’s literary-themed wedding is set to take place in 2015. Congrats!

This good looking couple asked me to shoot their engagement photos. Little did I know they would show up looking so sharp! You know I am a sucker for a pin up dress and suspenders! I had a great time taking these photos of Matt and Kate in the park. Here is to the happy couple. 🙂
