Neutral wedding colors.  If there were love languages for photographers, neutral wedding colors would be one of them.  What a way to end my 2018 wedding season.  Danielle and Jake had the most beautiful wedding at Hermann Hill Wedding Venue.  From the Jimmy Choos, to the baseball bat mugs, to the most perfect wedding dress […]

If there was ever a day for a wedding in the country, it’d be Samantha and Austin’s fall wedding at Heartland Farms.

The bridal suite at The Four Seasons St. Louis is like none other.  Floor to ceiling windows, across two rooms, with the most fabulous views.  The Arch shines in the not too far off distance.  The Martin Luther King bridge, stretching over the Mississippi River.  It’s a pretty spectacular space to start your wedding day.

Emily Broadbent Photography | One Year Later

St. Louis Wedding Photographer

We are almost a full month into 2019, and I can hardly believe it.  I’ve been thinking a lot about this little business of mine. Reflecting over 2018, dreaming of the future. There’s just something about the beginning of a new year that gets my brain all fired up!  

Around this time last year, I sat down and wrote out my “why”. The reason behind Emily Broadbent Photography.  I needed to put into words what my heart was feeling. It felt cheesy then, and it still does today.  BUT, putting it out there was a big step in the growth of my business. 

Here’s the funny thing about growth, it always involves change. It doesn’t have to be drastic change, or life altering change. In fact, it’s usually little by little. BUT, you can’t grow if you don’t change!  And bonus points if you actually learn something through the growth! So, as I sit down this year, I’ve discovered that my “why” has grown! I’ve learned and grown SO much this past year, and the reason I’m doing what I’m doing has grown with me.

Weddings are my main focus. That hasn’t changed. If anything, I’m more committed! I love weddings, I believe in marriage, I love my couples, I love love stories. I love LOVE! And being part of the most love-filled days is pure magic.

One of my most favorite things about what I do, is being able freeze, forever, all of that love and all of that happiness and all of that magic. The saying, “a picture is worth a thousand words” is never more true than with your wedding photos.  And I would even say, that a picture is worth a thousand feelings. 

A wedding day is just that, one day. One day that represents the journey of two people falling in love. One day, dedicated to celebrating that love. One day that marks the beginning of forever, together. And day one of marriage. 

I do what I do so that all of those feelings that led you to your wedding day, aren’t forgotten. Because marriage isn’t always a perfect wedding.
