Kate and Alex : Top of the Met Wedding Day • Central Missouri Based Destination Wedding Photographer


Kate and Alex’s Top of the Met Wedding Day was one for the books! Along with their wedding party, these two were in celebration mode all day! From the breathtaking wedding at St. Francis Xavier College Church to the party bus that was full of music and laughter, we were set to have a blast at their reception on the 42nd floor of Kemoll’s Fine Dining, or the beautiful Top of the Met in downtown St. Louis! Photographing Kate and Alex as they became husband and wife was truly a treat, frozen custard included, and I’m so excited for their future together!

Katie and Jimmy : Lindenwood University Engagement Session • Central Missouri Based Destination Wedding Photographer


Katie and Jimmy are the absolute sweetest and we had the best time photographing their Lindenwood University Engagement Session! Katie brought so many beautiful pieces to make up a picnic on campus, where they both attended college. From their we headed over to the beautiful front entrance, lined with towering trees and some gorgeous golden light. The images we captured from this session are simply stunning and I can’t wait to photograph their sweet wedding in 2015!

David and Shelby came to me with an amazing idea, incorporating their love for Rock Climbing into their engagement session! And although I’m quite afraid of heights, I couldn’t pass this up! So off to Capen Park we went for a little repelling before our second half of the session on MU Campus! David and Shelby are the absolute sweetest and I’m so happy that two risk taking, head over heels in love individuals are saying I DO next year!

Kristi and Chris : Jefferson City Wedding Day • Central Missouri Based Destination Wedding Photographer

WeddingPhotography_ImmaculateConceptionJeffersoncityMissouri_CatherineRhodesPhotography_2460.jpg
Kristi and Chris’ sweet Jefferson city wedding day began apart from one another, waiting for that special moment down the aisle. Kristi did ask to see her Dad in a First Look though, almost bringing tears to both their eyes. The ceremony itself was a beautiful Mass with many friends and family surrounding the couple with love and well wishes.

After this sweet pair became husband and wife, we hopped on a trolly and the celebrating really began! Portraits were first and we decided upon a beautiful spot right next to the Missouri River. Next up, the reception! The tables were set with candle light and so many flowers you could smell the tulips as you walked into the room. The toasting and dancing began and everyone was ready to have some fun!

Congratulations Kristi and Chris, wishing you so much happiness as you start your new life together!
