I am so excited to finally share these! In December I got to do a styled shoot with a bunch of super talented St. Louis vendors and it was a BLAST! Everything turned out so beautifully and I’m so thankful that we were all able to work together! Cece from Celebrate by Cece and I […]

Last September, I had the pleasure of second-shooting one of my friend’s sister’s wedding with the talented Jessica Shae! It was wonderful to witness and help capture such a beautiful day! I haven’t been able to share the photos until, so I hope you all enjoy! Their wedding was at the beautiful Kabekona Hills Retreat […]

With both Andrew and I taking pictures on wedding days and at shoots, we end up with a lot of pictures we have to cull. One of my favorite things about culling is seeing all the behind-the-scenes pictures. It’s so much fun to chuckle over our facial expressions when we’re oblivious to the camera, or […]

Well, 2020 is over and that means – a yearly wrap-up! Sadly, some of my favorite pictures from the end of the year can’t be shared because they’re waiting on publication – I can’t wait to share them soon, though! If you’re interested in seeing more posts like this, click here for the best of […]

Sam is a dear friend of mine who I’ve known for several years and she was also one of my bridesmaids! Needless to say we have a history of a wonderful friendship and also – many photoshoots together. You may remember her portraits from last year and before that her senior pics in 2017! Sam […]

Y’all, how cute is this family! Oh my goodness, the Avery’s were so much fun. We had such a crazy and awesome shoot! Brooke got in touch with me a while back and we set up her shoot! I wasn’t available until the end of October so I was worried that the leaves would all […]

Y’all, just a warning you’re in for a LONG post! I couldn’t refrain from posting ALL of these pictures! Jade and Cory had such a beautiful, special day and that’s so evident in these. ❤ You may remember Jade and Cory from their one-of-a-kind engagement session on a mountain in the snow! I can’t believe […]

He was struck by her the first time he met her, that Spring of 2014. Here was a girl that was beautiful and smart, driven, and had a winning personality. The other thing she had? A boyfriend. Boyfriend aside, Gary and Laura became friends later that year, studying together in their Masters program. It was […]

Meet the Hull family! I had the pleasure of meeting them when I moved here to Missouri a few months ago. The Hulls go to our church and are a big part of our church family! Caleb leads youth group and plays the piano, but they’re also just always there. I think the girls are […]

On Saturday we got to witness and photograph Jordan and Dylan’s lovely mini-mony! It was such a sweet, special day and we’re so honored to have been there with them! J&D’s wedding was simple, but elegant, and absolutely perfect in every way. I think that, if anything, COVID has taught us that small, meaningful days […]
