Emily + Mike | One Year Anniversary

Mike and Emily are lovers of all things creative and unconventional. Last April they eloped in Joshua Tree (see the images here) and on their first anniversary we took them out for a night shoot. One of the (many) things we love about Mike and Em is that they are always down for getting weird and being adventurous - which, in turn, allows us to experiment with stuff that we don’t get to do too often.

Libby + Ben | Springtime Forest Park Engagement Session

Spring is always a mixed bag here in the Midwest. You could be graced with beautiful 72 degree weather one day, and chilly overcast weather the next. Ben and Libby are planning their St. Louis wedding from their home base of NYC, and they scheduled their engagement session while they were in town checking off things on their wedding to-do list. The weather was pretty brisk but we just rolled with it - and the upside is that Forest Park was basically deserted so we had our run of the place ;)

Ryan + Becky | A Proposal

When Ryan reached out to me about photographing his proposal to his girlfriend Becky, I was thrilled! Becky is originally from St. Louis, but they currently both reside in Nashville. Proposing to her in her hometown was really important to Ryan, and a must-have for his plan included a stellar view of the Arch.

Alli + Dan | Central West End Engagement Session

I don’t know about anyone else, but every single year I hear the date “March 1st” and I IMMEDIATELY think spring. Something in me completely forgets that technically it’s still winter until the very end of this month. The day of Alli + Dan’s engagement session, mother nature definitely did not let us forget that winter is still clinging on to the Midwest.

Jordyn + Jimmy | Expecting

In the summer of 2017 we photographed Jordyn + Jimmy’s beautiful, stylish wedding at The Luminary. Fast forward about a year and half later and we were so thrilled to find out that they are expecting!! This past fall they got in touch to do a little pregnancy announcement shoot, and since they live in our neighborhood they hopped on over to our house and I took them to my favorite little spot in our alley, ha!

Deja + Mars | Engaged

Deja + Mars are high school sweethearts who met in St. Louis, but now reside in NYC. They came home to STL for the holidays and were able to squeeze in some time for an engagement session. With our son home from school, we’ve been a bit cooped up in the house, so it was awesome to get out for a bit and hang with these two.

Jamie + Logan | Woodsy Belleville Engagement Session

Oh man. I love engagement sessions so much. We have 4 more coming up in the next couple of weeks, and they are seriously some of my favorite kinds of sessions to shoot. I had so much fun with Jamie + Logan, and I am thrilled that we are also shooting their wedding at Silver Oaks next year! They are just the sweetest couple - friendly, warm, funny, and a real treat to have in front of the camera.

Nam + Lyly | SLU Campus Engagement Session

had so much fun hanging out with Nam + Lyly recently for their engagement session! I love when couples choose locations that are special to them - for Nam + Lyly it’s SLU’s campus, where their relationship began. I am super unfamiliar to this campus, but was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it is! We ended the session on a rooftop in the Central West End just as the sun was setting.

Ben + Ranana | St. Charles Winter Engagement Session

Everyone hates winter, amiright? Especially after the holidays when there's nothing really to "look forward to" and everyone is just over the cold. Well, everyone except for me. I used to be an avid hater of winter myself, but honestly I now love it. Okay.....so was it insanely cold/windy/uncomfortable when we shot these images? Yes. BUT, there are a couple of upsides that make winter sessions so worth it!…

Taylor + Ryan | Castlewood Park Engagement Session

It has definitely been THE fall of engagement sessions around here! I have worked with so many awesome couples over the past 2 months, and Taylor and Ryan were no exception :) I had a blast with these two. They wanted a woodsy vibe for their photos, so we decided on Castlewood Park which is such a great place to shoot - not only because of the abundance of trees and trails, but because of the overlooks as well…
