Missouri in the summer is hot.  But it’s also beautiful.  Especially Washington, Missouri.  I’m slightly biased, because I live in Washington, but it really is the cutest little town, nestled on the Missouri River.  And it’s the perfect place for a summer wedding.  Even in the heat.  And especially when two people are as sweet […]

FOR COUPLES

I am a BIG believer in date night.  Date nights start out as a way for two people to get to know each other and see if they have a connection.  That feeling you get when a guy you like asks you out, is exciting!  And then, if the date goes well, there’s the feeling […]

Spring Forest Park Engagement Session | St. Louis Wedding Photographer

I found Spring! In Forest Park!  And it made for the most wonderful spring engagement session!  But, I’ve decided I have a love/hate relationship with spring.  Because, while it may have LOOKED like spring, it definitely did not FEEL like spring.  It was cold.  Thank you, once again, Missouri.
