This was such a fun blast from the past for me! I photographed Austin’s senior photos over 5 years ago and Kayla came along for some of the photos. They are both such sweet people with genuine personalities that make them so easy and fun to get along with! I was so excited to hear […]

Gina and Dakota’s formal wedding day was absolutely perfect down to every last detail. Gina wore a perfect modern, striped wedding gown and Dakota was handsomely dapper in his black tie tux. The whole day was a gorgeous black and white affair! Gina and Dakota’s first look was absolutely perfect. Dakota was very nervous but […]

I met Taylor many years ago as we went to the same high school. She was always a positive and upbeat person and boy is it so awesome seeing her so happy with Cameron! Cameron is such a laid back, hilarious guy who keeps Taylor laughing with his simple jokes. It is so obvious how […]

What an amazing day for Paige and Mikey’s wedding! They had such a small and intimate ceremony with their closest friends and family on the patio at Long Bridge followed by a reception in their tent. Paige mixed the perfect touches of purple and silver to create the perfect summer wedding! We spent the afternoon […]

Erin and Chris’s wedding was such an exciting one! It was the end of July and although we figured the temps would be outrageous, we were lucky to be graced with a calm, low 80 degree day. I have known Erin for many years. We were great friends in high school, through sports and getting […]

Ashley and Branson have known each other since junior high but didn’t know their love for each other until going to homecoming years later as friends. They realized how much they enjoyed each other’s company and have been together over 6 years! […]

Alexis and Scott are such an adorable couple! They met in high school, stayed long-distance through college and dated for over 6 years before Scott popped the question at Forrest Park in St. Louis. Their wedding day was nothing short of amazing. It was a balmy, 96 degree day (about 120 with the humidity haha!). […]

Now that this beautiful lady is married I am so excited to show off her bridal portraits we took a few weeks ago! I had such an amazing time with Alexis, her sister and her mom walking around the beautiful Lewis & Clark College campus for some stunning bridal portraits. Alexis had a to-die-for dress […]

Natalie and Steve are such a perfect match! They both have huge personalities, Natalie’s with a ton of sweetness and attitude and Steve’s full of sarcasm and genuineness. They met a the Globe Tavern, downtown Springfield one evening when Natalie’s mom introduced them. Her first words to him included a sassy comment, he threw one […]
