Above are a few of my favorite moments from and engagement session we had at Lafayette Park in the historic Lafayette Square. This park is filled with beautiful landscapes, unique structures, and a cute bridge. We met Carrie and Jared are a super cute couple and we loved their “usable prop”. The bottom of Jared’s shoes say “GAME OVER”. Jarred loves to play video games so this is the prefect prop. Thanks for a great session guys and looking forward to the wedding October 13th!
Here are a few of my favorite photos from Megan’s senior pictures session in Historic St. Charles, MO. We had the pleasure of spending the day with both Megan and her mom Dawn. They both have great sense of humor which made it even more fun. We used some industrial style building and some of the beautiful old building Main Street has to offer. Megan is a very gorgeous girl who is very down-to-earth which made our job super easy and fun. Thanks so much for choosing us to photograph your senior pictures. #2018
When asked if we would like to get to get some promo shots of the band Concoction, we were so excited to say yes! We have had the pleasure of photographing ans filming these guys in the past but this was the first time we actually got to pose them:) below are a few of my favorites from their session at Leo's Pub in St. Charles, MO.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from Jack's 2 year session.
Most of these were taking in St. Charles on historic Main Street and the rest were taking in our photography studio. Jack is such a sweet boy with lots of energy and we had a great time with him.

Here are a few of my favorite moments from Mark and Janelle's wedding reception in Innsbrook, Missouri.
These two were wed beach side in Gulf Shores Alabama and we were lucky enough to photograph their reception when they came back home. It was a beautiful little celebration at Innsbrook, MO at their clubhouse. They have an amazing view out back where we took most of our pictures, a cute gazebo and we loved the sculpture Innsbook has in front of the building that we used as well.
Here are a few of my favorite moments from Madeleine and Bryan Bailey's long awaited wedding. We had the pleasure of meeting these two awhile back in May 2016 for their engagement session. Maddie and Bryan are a very affectionate couple with a great sense of humor. We knew their wedding was going to be so much fun since we had such a great time at their engagement session. Maddie and Bryan along with their wedding party, friends and family welcomed us with open arms and made us feel like family. Their ceremony was at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Clayton and the reception was at Norman K. Probstein Golf Course and Youth Learning Center, which is the golf course clubhouse in Forest Park. We took more photos and video around Forest Park with Maddie and Bryan and their wedding party. They all partied the night away and we could have easily stayed with them all night. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Bailey! Thanks so much for including us in your special day. #NoBaileyingOut

We met up with DeLisa and Luke for their engagement session on a beautiful and hot summer day. They had their first date on Main Street in Historic St. Charles, MO so it was the perfect place to take the photos. We started at the Lewis and Clark Boathouse because we loved the stonework on the building and the barge in the background. DeLisa and Luke are such a down-to-earth and laid-back couple that just goes with the flow, which made our job easy. We had such a great time with this couple and can't wait for the wedding!
We went to little Autumn's house in Montgomery City, Missouri to shoot her session. She was actually about 5 days old when we photographed this. She was a sleeping angel throughout the whole session. We loved her cute little tutu and headband outfit that Holly (mom) said a friend made for her. We were able to complete 3 different outfits with Autumn because mom and dad were able to soothe her back to sleep over and over again for us:) We can not wait to photograph this little sweetheart again.
We were so excited when Karen booked us to photograph her family and Josie's 3rd birthday. We met at our office to shoot some pictures of the Josie for her upcoming 3rd birthday. Her big sister, Jordan, was included in a few photos with her little sister. They were so cute "reading" the book together. We really loved it. Next, we went to historic Main Street St. Charles to use the train tracks and and other cute spots down there as backgrounds. We always like to get outside and use the natural light if possible. We had an amazing time photographing this goofy, fun-loving, and beautiful family. Thanks guys, until next time:)
A few of my favorite photos from Spencer's newborn session last weekend. We went over to Spencer's house and used his nursery for our "studio". We had a great time shooting his session (even if he did get a little fussy). We have had the pleasure of photographing his parents falling in love and getting married. Now, we get to watch this family continue to grow with their new addition.
Little Liam came to the studio with his parents to shoot his one year photos. He turned 1 on March 8th. We had the pleasure to photograph his newborn pictures and we are excited with how much he has grown in 1 year. He was so cute holding himself up on a little box we covered and crawling all over the place. We look forward to many more sessions with Liam.
It was another beautiful (randomly warm) winter day when we had Holly and her family meet us at the office for Holly's maternity/family session. We had the pleasure of photographing this family in the past and they are always dressed to impress (perfectly color coordinated) and a blast to be around. We are so excited that Holly is going to have another girl! She is due at the end of March and we can not wait to meet little Autumn soon:)
Here are a few of our favorite photos from Brittany and Dan’s engagement/family lifestyle session. These guys are a super fun and laid back couple who love sports and games. We did their shoot in the comfort of their own home. It was really fun taking photos at their home because of quick costume changes and their son Silas could easy pop in and out of pictures J It was also great because Dan and Brittany could totally be themselves without prying eyes which made for super cute photos. We can not wait for their wedding in November.
This is a cute little video we put together from a maternity session we had with our friends Alli and Rob. The video is shot with our brand new drone while we took pictures that day. They were lucky enough to get this extra video for with their session due to the usual beautiful February weather.
We have been privileged to photograph this couple in the past. We took pictures of their engagement and filmed and photographed their wedding. Now, we are lucky enough to watch this family continue to grow with their new addition. The expected due date is March 11th and these two could not be more ready for Spencer to come into their life. We are so excited to meet the little guy and take his picture :)
We met Amanda and Ryan in historic St. Charles for their winter engagement session. We walked down the Katy Trail so we could show off the amazing icicles on the trees. These two are perfect for each other and we can not wait till their wedding in October (the week before ours)! Enjoy some of our favorite photos from their session.
