Michelle & Erik :: Engaged! St Louis Wedding and Engagement Photographer

Ahhh, Michelle and Erik.  Your photos make me feel so warm and fuzzy!
This cute couple met each other through work and got engaged in September of this year.  I thought their engagement story was super cute, so I have to share!

Michelle knew it was coming.  Any day now.  And Erik knew she knew it.  So he milked it for everything it was worth.  He constantly teased her about proposing until she was fed up!  At this point, she finally gave up thinking that it would happen any time soon.  Right about when she did, she came home one day to a rose petal path leading through their home to the bedroom, where Erik waited on one knee with a beautiful ring in hand!  And, well, she said yes. :)

Congratulations, Michelle and Erik!  I hope you love your photos, and I can't wait until your wedding in May!!  Thanks for choosing me as your photographer for this special time in your lives!

Breanne & Nick :: Engaged! St Louis Wedding and Engagement Photographer

Breanne and Nick are one beautiful couple!  These two are getting married in May next year at the Lake of the Ozarks.  This also happens to be where they met and where Nick popped the question -- how romantic!  However, for the engagement photos, we went with a totally different feel!  We spent the afternoon at the Delmar Loop and got some super fun urban shots!

Oh, and did I mention, they brought their dog, Ace, along?  He was more than happy to pop in for a few of  the shots!  In fact, he kind of insisted on it, haha!

What a cutie.

Breanne has some beautiful bling!  I love the round vintage style!

Yeah, like I said, these two make a be-a-u-tiful couple!

We had fun capturing this next shot!  I got set up and waited for people to start walking past them.  However, everybody was being super polite!  Every passerby walked way out of the way so they wouldn't be in our shot!  I actually had to stop these guys and ask them to be in our shot to make it happen!  They were very nice and agreed to, no problem.

This cute shot was Nick's idea.  He wanted one of him and Ace both "checking out" Breanne.

Save the date!

Congratulations, Breanne and Nick!  It was an honor to capture these memories for you.  I hope you have a beautiful and memorable wedding and an even better marriage!

Chelsia :: Class of 2013 Senior!

How adorable is this senior girl?!  Readers, you may remember seeing Chelsia's lovely face in her mother, Yolonda's wedding post!  But, today, it's all about her!

This shot was the very first one from our shoot!  How photogenic can you get?

I could tell from talking with Chelsia just how smart and driven she is.  This girl has the world in front of her, with so many options!  I can't wait to see where you go, Chelsia!  I can definitely tell you will be successful in your endeavors!

Chelsia's mom, Yolonda, is currently stationed overseas with the military. So as Chelsia patiently waits for her to come home, she wanted a photo wearing her mom's jacket.  I can only imagine how proud Mom must be!

And of course, we had to get one in her guy's letter jacket!  So cute.  :)

Thanks so much, Chelsia, for having me take these photos for you!  I hope you have a blast with the rest of your senior year and even more fun as the rest of your life unfolds!

Lauren & Ryan :: Engaged!

Meet Lauren and Ryan, one cute couple getting married in just under a year!  This couple and I have a lot in common!  From the fact that we live practically a block from each other, to the fact that they got engaged on my wedding day(!), to the fact that Ryan and my hubby both work at the same company, I think it's got to be more than a coincidence that I'm their wedding photographer!  ;)  I can't wait for their beautiful, outdoor wedding next October!  Enjoy the photos of this lovely couple!

Love Lauren's freckles.

Talk about bling!  I love it! :)

Thanks so much for spending the evening hanging out with me, Lauren and Ryan!  I hope you love your photos, and I can't wait for your big day!!
