Jessica and Jake met at a pizzeria, Jessica a young new employee and Jake the cute older manager. With their love for pizza and their instant attraction these two were inseparable after time!

 

These girls were WAY too much fun! I had such a blast getting to know them all. So many laughs so many great memories made.

Jessica and Jake, I had such an amazing time with you two! I can’t wait to see where your amazing lives take you! A little photo of the three of us for kicks 😛

There is something so special about being in the right place at the right time, with the right person. Lacey and Rick met on top of a sledding hill the winter of 2014.

There is something so special about being in the right place at the right time, with the right person. Lacey and Rick met on top of a sledding hill the winter of 2014. He was charming and sweet and of course interested in this beautiful blonde he happened to be sharing a hilltop with. (Who wouldn’t be, this girl is goooorgeous!) The rest is history. These two are a match made in heaven.

Lacey is the talented baker and creator behind Sweet Treats and Lace, a new thriving bakery here in St. Louis. Rick, a salesman in the medical field. Family is their life. Skiing in colorado, beaching it up on the coast and camping with their furry friends are among their favorite adventures together.

Though Rick didn’t ever formally got down on one knee and ask Lacey to marry him, she admits “He asked me every time we saw one another.” Such a sweet question to be asked again and again.

Danny proposed to Kari on the peak of a mountain while hiking. Talk about romantic! These two love nature and they requested to have their engagement session in a beautiful location outdoors. Creve Coeur Park was the perfect spot for such special images. For shooting in winter they picked the perfect day! The sun was shining and you can’t even tell how cold it was that day in their images.

 

Kari is a Nurse who loves her puppy, yoga and paintball. Danny is a financial advisor who enjoys golf.

I may have tortured them towards the end of the session by shooting them barefoot walking through the shoreline of a nearby lake but how beautiful did their images turn out! So dreamy and romantic. I am so glad that they trusted my vision and were tough enough to get a little wet.

They had such a fun time flirting in front of the camera. The moment I met Kari I knew she was a sweetheart who was so down to earth. I am so excited for their wedding this coming May.

For this styled shoot I worked with some of the most talented ladies in St. Louis, Missouri. Lately I have been so inspired by organic simple greenery and classic vintage textures and details. Our setting for the session was at the beautiful nurseries of Schmittel & Baxter Farms in Creve Coeur, Missouri. This location is covered in beautiful white rock and lined with trees and shrubs of all colors and sizes. Our bride Bianca wore a beautiful Enzoani gown. She was garnished with a beautiful custom hand made rosemary flower crown which smelled oh so good.

“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around.

“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful.

2016-08-09_0001 2016-08-09_0002 2016-08-09_0003

There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colors seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face.

2016-08-09_00042016-08-09_00052016-08-09_00062016-08-09_0007

In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.” – Bob Marley

My session with the beautiful Candice took place at Klondike Park near wine country, Augusta Missouri. This park once was an old quarry that was filled with water and converted into a beautiful park. White sand and crystal clear water made for a beautiful setting. Candice wore a beautiful Free People dress that was so comfy and flowy adding a unique feel to her images. Her hair was lightly curled and she wore a beautiful headpiece from Pacific Sun. Her bouquet included ranculuous flowers and organic greenery for a relaxed bohemian feel. Her flowers were garnished with beautiful hand dyed silk ribbon from Utterly Engaged that hangs down low from the florals and catches in the wind adding beautiful movement for her photographs.
