Jessica and Cody : St. Louis Engagement Session • Central Missouri Based Destination Wedding Photographer

Jessica and Cody met up with us this past weekend for their beautiful St. Louis Engagement Session! Not only did they bring their adorable pup for a few photos, but we spent half of the afternoon at one of our favorite venues in the city! This beautiful and historical building is found in downtown St. Louis and really represented Jessica and Cody’s personality together! After The Old Post Office, we switched gears and headed to the ice rink in Forest Park for some beautiful evening images on the rink, right where Cody proposed to Jessica!

Congratulations again Jessica and Cody, we are so excited to photograph your wedding later this year!

Personal Project 2015 : Fan of the Month Giveaway • Central Missouri Based Destination Wedding Photography

Today we are going to get a little personal with a project that is near and dear to my heart! This year I’m finally starting a personal project that has been something I’ve wanted to do for more than a few years now.

So what is this project all about? Well let me introduce you to the two lovely people below that have inspired this whole idea! These two beautiful souls are my parents and I’m even more proud to share that they have been happily married to one another for 47 YEARS. Yes, 47 years. It’s pretty amazing to grow into an adult with that kind of love constantly surrounding you and is probably a huge factor in why I absolutely adore photographing love so so much!

This year I’d love to find couples, parents, grandparents, who are just as in love and have been married for 25+ years! These couples absolutely amaze me with how long they have worked to hold on to something so dear and I can’t wait to hear their stories!

With that I’d like to announce the Fan of the Month Giveaway! We are combining January and February, since Valentine’s is right around the corner and fits in so perfectly with this project. If you or someone you know has been married for 25+ years, we would love to photograph their sweet relationship, in or around their home, capturing their sweet life together!

How to Enter :

1. Share a photo of you or someone you know who has been married for 25+ years to our page on Facebook or to Instagram

2. Include the years they have been married in your post to either page

3. If posting to Instagram, please tag with #CatherineRhodesPhotography

And that’s it! Please be sure to have the couples consent before posting, we only want to hear from those that are excited to share their story! Enter your photos by February 14th at 11:59pm.

One couple will be chosen to be one of our first sessions photographed in this new project and many others will be contacted for a future session in 2015! Each couple will receive this free portrait session along with a handful of images to download and print as a reminder of how amazing their marriage really is! If you have any questions, just email The winner will be picked at random and announced on February 15th 2015!
