Happy 10/16 and a quick contest!!

Happy 10/16!!!!! One of our favorite quotes is “sometimes the most ordinary things can be made extraordinary, simply by doing them with the right people.” TenSixteen Photography is about capturing the big moments in life, but for us as a couple we know you can’t have the big moments without the hundreds of small moments that change your life forever. Today we celebrate all the little things that make these momentous days so special.

Stacy - LOVE THIS!!!
Recently we help a family reunion at our home. It was very stressful and the planning and cleaning and cooking was overwhelming. After the day was over and everyone had gone home, my husband and children talked about all the funny moments on the front porch and laughed the night away. It made all the stress well worth it!!

BRAD - This summer after watching an episode of So You Think You Can Dance, my wife was doing the dishes and I challenged her to a dance off. lol. Right there in the kitchen, we danced our butts off and laughed so hard we couldn’t breathe. We both know I was the winner, and if she says differently she’s a liar!!

Jessie - My husband and I rented a motorcycle a few weeks ago and spent the weekend driving on the back roads and stopping at little markets and diners. It was like we didn’t have a care in the world!!

Ashlee - My 7 year old and I were trying to take some self portraits with my new camera. I kept setting the timer and running in the photo before the timer went off. About the 5th photo in, while running to her to get in the photo I fell flat on my face. After the shock wore off for both of us we sat there (or in my case laid there) and laughed. The photos are extra special to me now even though none turned out.
Love the contest – made me smile!!

Megan S. - My husband and I recently celebrated our 5 year anniversary. We spent the day working and barely saw one another. That evening we drank wine and popped popcorn and watched our video that you guys did for us. It was the perfect ending to the day!!

Kari & David {married}

I wouldn’t say they are opposites – because the connotation sounds conflicting and disagreeing. I would say that their differences compliment the other perfectly – one picks up where the other leaves off without effort. Both have many similarities as well, both are kind and loving, cherish their families, and both are just plain adorable. They love one another wholeheartedly, and look out for one another in a caring and involved way. Their connection is true and unfaltering, so it was no question why we were so excited when Kari contacted us with the news that she and David were engaged. Having the pleasure of capturing her brother’s wedding a couple years ago, we always enjoy working with familiar people. When those people just happen to be kind to boot – you know it’s going to be a great day! Without disappointment, it was a flawless, laid-back, joyful day – one that you have to check out!! Enjoy Kari & David’s wedding day!!

Lauren & Coty {engaged}

They both worked at the Arch, and he was crossing her path way more than what could be considered “coincidental”. After years of casual conversations, innocent flirting, and an overwhelming chemistry Coty finally asked Lauren out in 2008; ask Coty for the story, and he’ll say he begged her to go out with him for years. For their actual first date, they met in Soulard at the Blues CityDeli for lunch. Because they had known one another for years, the transition from friend to significant other was actually quite seamless. It was just easy, no other way to describe it. They continued dating for around 3 and a half years before that night in December when they became something more….

Chelsey & Brad {engaged}

Two weeks prior to their engagement, Chelsey was driving home from work and heard a local country station having a contest on the air for upcoming Leap Day. In honor of an old Irish tradition, the station was wanting women to call in and propose to the men they love. Chelsey immediately text Brad – “Just heard on WIL that on Leap day, it’s an Irish tradition that a woman can propose to the man she loves. Looks like I will be proposing to the man I love today… Skip Schumacher (Cardinals Baseball player). Just Kidding… “

Dana & Brian {engaged}

They’d been dating awhile, and it seemed as though everywhere they went people were asking them when they’d finally get married. Brian teased that every time someone asked he would tack on a year to the day he planned to propose. He was old fashioned and when the time was right, he wanted it to be a complete surprise. She figured she would know it was coming, yet somehow Brian bought a ring and asked her parents all the while Dana had no idea.
