Marjorie & Chris :: Engaged! St Louis Wedding Photographer

Marjorie and Chris are simply full of fun!  I couldn't be happier to be photographing this couple!  I think everything you need to know could be surmised from two things that happened the night they got engaged:  dancing in a parking lot, and 30 minutes of praying together.  These two love God, they love fun (and swing dancing!), and they love each other.  Marjorie and Chris, I can not wait for your wedding!  :)

Since they both do love swing dancing, we had to make it a part of their session.  It will definitely make an appearance at the wedding, too, I'm told.

 These two were so playful and fun together, it made my job easy!  They were always up for a quiet, snuggly moment, too, though.

All of these photos were from Main Street St Charles and Frontier Park.  I always meet at Bike Stop Cafe, just for a central location.  This night the cafe had a cute table-side fire on their patio, and we took full advantage. 

We finished out the night by walking along the cobblestone sidewalks of Main Street, and these two rocked it just as much as everything beforehand.

How adorable are these two?!

Marjorie and Chris, I just love the energy the two of you have together, and I am so happy to be your photographer!  Congratulations!!

Jenny & Jason :: Married! St Louis Wedding Photographer

This day was classy, fun, and absolutely teeming with love!  Jenny and Jason had a beautiful wedding day at Blanchette Park.  The rain may have forced this ceremony indoors, but it did not dampen the spirits one bit!  

Jenny and the girls began by getting ready at The Charles Hotel on 5th St in St Charles.

Jenny took a moment while being prepped to write a sweet note to her groom-to-be.

How beautiful of a bride was she?!

Ameristar Casino provided the perfect location for us to take shelter from the rain while still enjoying the natural light.

At this point in the day, it was only sprinkling, but I am so glad Jenny and Jason were willing to brave those sprinkles so we could capture the full story of the day!

All of the chalkboard signs were custom made by the talented Cara's Customs!   

Mr. and Mrs.!

Personally, I think everybody should feed each other cake the way these two did!

Congratulations, Jason and Jenny!  Your day was completely fun and completely beautiful.  I am grateful and honored to have been a part of it!  Thank you to my awesome team of second shooters, Lisa and Justin, and thank you to Carolyn Burke as well, for coordinating the day so well.  Jason and Jenny, we wish you all the best in your many happy years of marriage to come!
