Kim, Madison, and Maci :: Maci is Turning 1!

These three ladies make such a lovely little trio! 

Meet 3-year-old Madison, Maci, and their mom, Kim!
This session was in honor of Maci's upcoming first birthday . . . on Thanksgiving!

Madison and Maci have such a cute chemistry.  Madison loves her little sister and will jump to help her out.  Maci watches Madison with admiration and will laugh at just about anything silly she does!

They both seem to be best buds with Mom as well.  :)

The best part of the session was the cake smash for Maci at the end!

You know you're doing a cake smash right when you even have cake on your shoes!

Madison was so understanding that the cake was for Maci . . . but she had to sneak in a little taste! ;)

Thanks so much for the fun times to all three of you!  Happy birthday, Maci!!

Lauren & Ryan :: Married! St Louis Wedding Photographer

I have been blessed to shoot some absolutely perfect weddings this month.  Lauren and Ryan's big day was far from the exception.  This wedding was classy, elegant, natural, and oh-so lovely.  They had an outdoor ceremony at Old Hickory in St Peters, and everything was stunning.  Lauren and Ryan are awesome to work for, too.  They are so photogenic and so sweet and kind!  Enjoy their engagement photos here, if you'd like to take a look back.  Then, enjoy this be-a-utiful day!!

The ceremony location was breath-taking.  
This dress was so Lauren.  On her, it looks like it was custom made just for her.

On to the ceremony . . . .

I loved the look on Ryan's face as he saw his glowing bride walk down the aisle.

Lauren was a truly gorgeous bride.

She looks so regal in this slim gown.

Ryan looked quite classy himself.

Let's get this party started!

Thanks so much for choosing me as your wedding photographer, Lauren and Ryan!  Your day was everything a wedding day should be - completely beautiful and completely fun!  I wish the two of you the happiest of lives together!  Congratulations!
