farm living is the life for me!

Who doesn’t love cows, chickens, cats and dogs? OK maybe lots of you. Who doesn’t love pics of cows, chickens, cats and dogs? Well I have some adorable cow images for you.  I hung out with these cows last Sunday.  They watched me closely, to see what exactly I was doing.  I watched them too, on the other side of the fence of course.  Hey, I didn’t want to get dirty.

Enjoy the images.

I do love a sweet wedding!

I photographed another elopement last week with Carolyn.  She and I are beginning to make this an every Friday kinda date.  And I have to say that works for me!  I really enjoy photographing at all the cool spots in STL and getting to meet and know all the new couples.  Last Friday we met at the Muny in Forest Park and despite the rain, Megan and Colt said “I do” along side of their moms and children.

While I don’t typically know the couples until I meet them minutes before the ceremony, I can usually connect with them pretty quickly.  By the end of this wedding with Megan and Colt, I knew they were all gonna be one big happy family!

Check out a few of my favorite images.  Aren’t those kids adorable in their pretty pink dresses?

Cowboy Wedding

I was asked to photograph a wedding for a photography company in St. Charles.  I hadn’t met the couple or even talked to them until I arrived at the cute little church in Wright City MO.  I met Heather and Tyler that afternoon.  And soon after, they walked down the aisle to say “I do”.

We had torrential down pour all day but we were able to get some great images in anyway!  We spent some time in a barn where we could stay dry and we also spent time at Tyler’s farm with the tractors.

Check out a few of my favorite images of the day.

Sarah’s Bat Mitzvah

I  photographed my first bat mitzvah of 2015 for Sarah at CRC, and then we were off to the City Museum for her party.  What a great way to start the year!  We met up for the formals a little before the service….this family followed the directions and they were all there early and ready to go.  They were so ready that we completed all the formal images quickly, and with extra time to spare.  I don’t get to say that very often.  Sarah was a bit nervous but once she got on the bimah and began the service she was relaxed, confident and did a fabulous job.  Mazel Tov Sarah!

Check out a few of the pics from the day.

Sarah and Jen get married!

This month I was able to photograph my first “LEGAL”, Missouri same sex marriage.  It is heartwarming to see this finally coming to fruition.  I had not met the couple until their big day because they are from out of town.  Jen is stationed in Belgium and Sarah will be going home with her new wife tomorrow.  It’s so wonderful to see two people who love each other being able to get married!  Their family and friends were excited and happy to be there too.  The wedding and reception was held at Spazio’s in Westport Plaza (way to go Spazio!) and it was officiated by the one and only, Carolyn Burke!

Enjoy a few images from Sarah and Jen’s special day.  If you’re looking for a wedding photographer contact me and let’s talk about your big day!  If you’re looking for a wedding liaison, contact Carolyn Burke.

Sam comes home

Rebecca and Mac have been waiting to bring Sam home for 2 years.  May 31 was finally that day.  Mac stayed in St. Louis with small Paul, whom they adopted earlier in 2011, while Rebecca and her mother, Sungja went to Seoul to bring Sam home.  It was a long busy 2 weeks but for the Bergson family, well worth it.  Many friends, Linda, a minister from The Gathering and me, their photographer got to the airport early so we could see them coming through the corridor. There were signs and lots of “welcome home” shouts and a few tears of joy too; I was so excited to be there to capture such a special moment!  What a special, wonderful and happy family!

Enjoy a few of the photographs I captured.

If you have a special event you need captured, contact me.  I want to share with you, your special moments!
