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!
