Lexie B. {High School Senior}

It goes without saying that Lexie is beautiful. With her bright blue eyes that draw you in or her cute dimple when she smiles, Lexie has “the look”. She’s youthful and fun, yet pulls off a calm, relaxed look of someone beyond her age. Her personality shines through in her images and you just can’t help but adore her. We photographed Lexie on a GORGEOUS Thursday and had such a great time spending time with she and her mom. So much so that the time flew by. Enjoy Lexie’s senior session!

Amanda & Mike {Engaged}

She was participating in a half marathon with a friend in St.Louis. She’d asked him to come along and cheer her on, but he told her he’d be fishing. She’d always been the “follow the rules” kind of girl, and he’d generally been the one to break them, so she didn’t think much of it. She knew him well. They’d gone to high school together but ran in different circles, but when their paths crossed later, he surprised her when he asked her “What do you think of you and me?” After laughing, she actually thought about it. 3 years later on the day of the marathon he still managed to surprise her.

Tammy - Love them! Great looking couple and great photos!

christine - Karin, you seriously crank out some amazing images…you (and Roger) are my heros! Every single blog post is better than the last, you two are so inspiring! Promise me you will write a book at some point in your life…you are an amazing writer. xoxo

Amanda Zika - How did I miss these? What a cute couple! In love and ready to start their future together. I can’t wait to see the amazingness you do with their wedding. And I love that cabin shot a million times over!

Jessica P. {Pre-Bridal}

Pre Bridal sessions were a staple of wedding photography in years past. A portrait of the bride would be displayed at the wedding reception and would then adorn a wall in the bride’s family home. Modern day Pre Bridal sessions have often been replaced with Trash the Dress sessions where brides can get down and dirty and get more unique looks without having to worry about ruining their dress. Either way you look at it, any excuse to wear your wedding dress beyond just the day of is a good one. I personally love a pre bridal session as it gives a soon to be bride the opportunity to basically have a trial run before the wedding day. Jessica’s pre bridal helped her fine tune her birdcage veil and figure out some issues with her dress, but the best part was that it put her at ease on her wedding day.

Behind the scenes {What happens in the office…}

This blog has been all business for months now.  A blog follower asked recently “What about your personal blogs?  What’s been going on?”  Plenty of stuff has been going on, and we’ll be darned if we haven’t neglected to share it.  Our life is actually more than just taking photos, editing, and work.  Ever wonder what a day behind our computers look like?

Carla - I’m pretty sure I was one of the people requesting some fun posts and I cracked up when I saw this. Funny, that is exactly what I envisioned you and Roger doing. Ha!

Jamie Lane - Considering you have so much video & camera equipment, can I make a request? I want to see Karin & Rog do a lil ditty. A song. Maybe a dance? Heck – I’d settle for any video of the 2 of you. . . even if it was just you two of you sitting at your kitchen counter eating cereal.

Amanda Zika - Bahahaha – I remember seeing that video on Ellen! Love it!

Jordan H. {High School Senior}

One would think the seniors we’ve captured this year are actually paid models, and you wouldn’t be out of line to think that way. They have all been ridiculously good looking and work a camera like a pro. They other thing they’ve all been thus far is… female. So when we got the contact for Jordan’s session we were pumped. Finally a boy to mix it up a bit! Roger warned me to cut back on the words “cute” and “fierce” and to not ever, EVER say to “not be afraid to bring some sass to the table.” Wow. That really limited what I’d be able to say. Much to my surprise, it didn’t matter. I did not need to say one thing to get Jordan comfortable in front of the camera. He just naturally brought it. And even though he is super cute, and pretty fierce… I kept my words to myself. Until now. Enjoy Jordan’s senior photos!!!

Amanda Zika - You are hands down the best senior photographer in St. Louis – maybe even the whole country. I am dead serious. You should be doing workshops. Every single session is beyond amazing.
