I tend to steer clear of Forest Park. You know, there's always lots of people and events BUT this location was SUPER. The trees couldn't have been more perfect and I loved the clean modern lines of the buildings. These guys were also so much fun! Congratulations your two! I can't wait for your fall 2018 wedding!

Man! I'm excited for these two! Last April I photographed their wedding, so they might look a little familiar. They are getting ready to welcome their new little boy in January! I can't wait to meet him!

Oh, Danielle and Feysel! Your day was windy and a little bipolar but it sure was a beauty. Danielle is a classic beauty.  She is down to earth and about as fun as they come.  The wedding took place in her parents barn. It sat on a hill and was perfectly placed. There were cows and huge sprawling fields everywhere. 

Danielle and Feysel chose not to see each other until the ceremony. Both were beaming as she came down the aisle. The ceremony got moved inside due to random rain showers and some serious wind BUT half way through the ceremony Danielle spotted a double rainbow as the clouds moved out. It was a perfect touch. :)

Feysel serves in the military so some classic red, white and blue was warn. They also had some killer socks. :) The wedding party was a blast and had super attitudes! We tromped through fields and big holes to get to the perfect spot and let me tell you, the light was killer. 

The reception took place in the barn and was beautiful. It was the perfect night to have the huge doors open. Everyone had a blast! Congratulations you two and thanks for welcoming me to the farm!

You know what's fun about this family! At the end of a session they get huge lollipops, and I'm not talking about dumdums. :) I 100% love and support it! I even get excited to see what kind of lollipops they are going to be! Another great thing about this family is that the next time I see them there are going to be 5 of them! Yep! Come February, they will be a party of 5! I can't wait, and I'm sure they can't either. Congratulations!

I can't help to think how great of friends these two will be when they get big! It was a cold morning but they came bundled up pushing their strollers, which were complete with their favorite babies. How fun is that!  They had the best smiles and couldn't have been better sports!

What a perfect fall day! The weather was perfect and so were the leaves! We played with sticks and had a little fun. Thanks so much for being flexible so we didn't have to freeze! 😊 Who doesn't love tromping around in a forest on a beautiful day!?!

I love a bride that values comfort and thats just what this bride did. Her brides maids were pretty thankful too. :) Their wedding took place at Haue Valley, in Pacific, Missouri. The fall day couldn't have been more picture perfect. 

Meredith's cousin married them and he did a super job. As soon as Meredith saw her soon to be husband her perfect smile did not leave her face. They were SO cute. 

Meredith and Kris chose to have their siblings stand in as their wedding party. I'm pretty sure they couldn't have been more excited for the couple. 

Meredith and Kris are super decorators, which, I found out when I went to their home for their engagement session. It was clear that their talent spilled over to their reception! It was beautiful down to the littlest details. Congratulations you two! 


Interesting fact: Joy delivered Jamie at the same hospital as I did my oldest. They were born the same day and are a few hours apart. :) If we would have know each other back then we could have had a party! These guys are pretty fun, each and everyone of them, AND if you need a video guy for your wedding Jason is your guy! 


These guys are special. I first photographed them three years ago. Through those three years there have been a lot of changes and challenges.. This family is brave and loving and they have persevered. What a gift it is to see them live life.
