Where to begin? Anna and Ryan’s wedding was one of my favorites of all time. Accompanied by their best friends and families, Anna and Ryan said “I do” on Ryan’s family’s property across from Little Prairie Lake in Rolla, MO. It was a beautiful day – warm and sun peaking through the clouds, leading to […]

Last week we met up with the Robinsons in Queeny Park in St. Louis for their family session! The Robinsons recently moved to the area from TN and it was so great to capture their family in this new state and phase of life! Chelsea and John and so sweet together and their daughter is […]

Anna is one of those people who I knew instantly that we would need to be friends. When she reached out about wedding photos last December, I loved her personality immediately. “We are so excited to meet you!”, she said. You wouldn’t think that would mean much, but in a world where couples reach out […]

Meet Sarah and Teddy – two incredibly smart, friendly, down-to-earth, driven, fun-loving people. Sarah is from St. Louis and Teddy, from Idaho. Work brought Teddy to Kansas, and five years later, med-school brought Sarah there as well. It wasn’t long afterward when their paths crossed in Wichita, and the rest, as many say, was history. […]

Y’all! I am so excited to share this shoot! It has been a work of much stress and many talented creatives. The idea for this shoot basically started several years ago. You see, I grew up on a farm – with an apple orchard. And being a lover of beauty, spring captured my soul every […]

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 […]
