Erica M. {H.S. Senior}

Senior sessions are just the most fun to shoot. They never get old and always let our creativity come to life in so many ways, wether it be lighting or posing or styling. This year, the 2012 seniors have straight up brought it. We were so fortunate to work with not only amazingly attractive people, but amazingly talented and adorable people! Erica was the last senior session we were able to take on this year, and we’d have to tell you that she made sure we ended on a high note. Delightful and sweet, Erica rocked her senior session last week and we are so excited to share a sneak peek of 10 of our top favorites. Enjoy!

Lindsey & Greg {Wedding Day}

Lindsey & Greg were married on a warm Saturday in late August. The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and a gentle breeze swept through the grasses and the trees. It was just as they had hoped for, and it was beautiful. There is nothing more amazing than witnessing a bride walking towards her future, or a groom watching the woman he’ll grow old with as she steps towards him. It’s so simple, yet so much lies under the surface. Memories of what was and what will be, not exactly the beginning, but definitely the start. It’s love. And it is beautiful. Enjoy Lindsey & Greg’s wedding day.

christine - Absolutely perfect!!! The happiness just oozes out of these images. I love the connection you two make with your couples, you don’t see that often and I believe it’s such an important part of being a photographer and telling the story of your clients!

Lindsey Gammon - Karin and Roger. You guys couldn’t have captured this day better for us. You got the fun out of the whole day….and that’s what we wanted more than anything. I hope in the process you both had fun also. I can’t WAIT to see the rest of the pics….you guys are just SO amazing!!!!!

emily ek designs - these are gorgeous! 🙂

Amanda Zika - I know I say this every time you post a wedding but wow, you are amazing! i see so much love and personality in these photos. You are a true gem in this photography world. And so is Rog!

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.

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.
