I walked in to the lobby at the MO Botanical Gardens; I see Kara, Craig and thier entourage. Kara has bought tickets for everyone and the plan is a short and sweet elopement and a few pics. I guess the minister standing there holding a bible, or maybe it everyone wearing a shirt and tie and/or a dress, kinda gave us away but it was a MOBOT “sneek in” fail! We were told we couldn’t go in and have a ceremony or take pics so we had to leave. OK, plan B.
So we decided to go to Tower Grove Park and hit the rock ruins or the Piper Palm House for a background – problem was, a huge storm was brewing. We got to the park, began with the service and soon the winds and rain soaked us. That’s OK, the sun came out when we were all done. And anyway, it’s good luck to get rain on your wedding day and even more luck if you get rained on. I’m sure that ole’ wive’s tale is true!
So Craig and Kara got married elopement style, even if the whole family did show up!
Enjoy a few pics from their special day!

I got the chance to photograph a lovely couple being married by Carolyn Burke of Elope St. Louis. I have worked with Carolyn before and she is fantastic; this was my first elopement with her officiating.
Ed and Vicki waited for us in the Basso at the Cheshire Inn. We walked in and they were sitting in a booth, smiling from ear to ear. I think they were a bit nervous too. The ambience was warm and cozy, and there they picked a place in front of the roaring fire. Carolyn got right down to business and Ed and Vicki were married in just a few short but very sweet minutes. We even had time for the lighting of the unity candle.
And once they said their ”I do”, we went off to take a some pics. So enjoy a few favorites from Ed and Vicki’s big day.
If you want to get married without the fuss but with plenty of style, call Carolyn and she can fix you right up.
What a great year Kristi Foster Photography, Inc has had! New clients, new website and even a new blog.
Thank you to all my supportive clients and friends!
What’s in store for 2014? I am hoping to get this blogging stuff down and get more out there. I also plan to take a few continuing education classes, just to keep sharp (see what I did there?) on my photography skills. I will be working on expanding weddings and bar/bat mitzvahs into North Carolina and I’m hoping to schedule some of those near or on the beach! I might even be able to get a photo workshop trip in too….I’m thinking Tuscany, at least that is my hope anyway.
Whew, that’s an ambitious 2014, but I’m ready and excited!
Enjoy a few of my favorite images from 2013….

It was the hottest day of the year, here in STL and I was helping Denise photograph a wedding…OUTSIDE. I think I drank more water and Gatorade in that one day then I did all summer. But it was worth it. The bride and groom did just great and never broke a sweat although I do not know how.
I have been lucky; this year I was able to work with several different photographers to “second shoot” some weddings. I really enjoy helping out because it gives me the chance to see other photogs in action as well as allowing me to focus on the candid and details, which I love so much. Plus I was able to go to several new places such as The New Town Chapel, which was a wonderful place for a wedding. I was introduced to the Old Town Chapel in Florissant MO, where I met one of the most humorous ministers around who had a knack for a beautiful and powerful message about marriage. I also photographed at Twin Oaks Presbyterian Church, where we had awesome courtyards with fountains and stain glass, we even beat the rain on that day…but just barely.
Enjoy a few pics from the different weddings. And remember, Kristi Foster Photography books a limited number of weddings each year so make sure you call or email me now to book your 2014 or 2015 date.
OK, everyone has been asking about my older couple’s wedding. I was asked by a friend to photograph a small intimate wedding at a home in Town and Country. Of course I said yes.
The back story I was given is as follows: Bev went to work for Charles right out of school; she was his assistant. Not long after she started he said to her, “you know, you’re a smart cookie, you should go back to school”. And she did. She went from his assistant to a lawyer and they worked together side by side for many years. Then they opened up their own law firm and became partners. All the while Bev became great friends to Charles and his wife. They even lived next door to one another. They really were all best friends. Then several years ago Charles’ wife got ill and so both Bev and Charles rallied together to care for her. She died 2 years ago and Bev and Charles remained best friends. So what do best friends do? They get married and live happily ever after. THE END!
All you have to do is look at their smiles to know… there is love!
