The Davies Family

Meet the Davies! They are such a sweet sweet family. I love creating family portraits because the connection between parents and children is always changing.

I really identified with the family dynamic the Davies have, because my husband and I also have a family of three. Watching them snuggle and laugh was such a great joy.

Ben and Christina | Engaged

I completely love downtown St. Louis! The architecture and beautiful trees and flowers combines to create and interesting and fantastic combination. Downtown was perfect location for Ben and Christina’s engagement session since this sweet couple has created so many fond memories in the city. Ben and Christina started off with a fun, dressy outfit. Christina’s vibrant one-shoulder blue dress complimented Bens steel gray button down perfectly. After they changed into a more casual outfit, we headed to the arch to get some more creative and casual photos.

Joe and Abby | The Barn at Chaumette

Joe and Abby had an absolutely amazing wedding day! In the week leading up to their vows a major rain storm had been predicted for the St. Louis area. As I drove to Sainte Genevieve, Missouri for their outdoor wedding ceremony the forecast was proving itself true. I was lifting up prayers for the two of them while driving through a honest to goodness down pour.

When I arrived at Chaumette Winery, where Joe and Abby had their entire wedding weekend the rain was letting up, but the radar did not look very promising. Again I, along with Abby and her sweet mom Liz, began praying. Asking God to be bigger than the looming rain storm.  About an hour later the skies began to clear up and give way to a beautiful June day.It was nothing short of miraculous! The storm stayed away. We did have a few well timed sprinkles, but Joe and Abby’s wedding day never saw a storm. Abby was a simply stunning bride. Her J. Crew gown and heirloom jewelry were very classic, relaxed and elegant, perfect for an outdoor wedding.  I still can’t get over how flawless her hair and make-up were! Joe was nothing short of dapper in tan linen suit with white pocket square, and Calvin Klein cuff links.  The bride and groom chose to have a  day surrounded by their families. Joe and Abby had their brothers and sisters as a wedding party with the girls in light pink dresses carrying colorful bouquets and the guys in linen suites with gingham accents on their pocket squares and bow ties.  Cheerful and Elegant with a splash of sweet whimsy – perfect for a summer wedding at the Barn at Chaumette.

These two are a fantastic couple – a dietitian and chef by trade,  they laugh often, love great food, and are so warm, kind,  and welcoming.  Joe and Abby obviously love each other more than words could ever say. Their wedding was a perfect day – Joe and Abby exchanged their vows in a stunning out door ceremony surrounded by their friends and family, and then they celebrated and danced the night away.

Congratulations, Joe and Abby! It was such a pleasure to be a part of your love story!

Nathan & Aurora Wed | Lafayette Square Wedding St. Louis Mo

Let me start by saying how very much I love to photograph outdoor garden weddings. They really are some of my favorites. One of the main reasons I love them so much is the amazing images that come from the ceremony. Images from an outdoor wedding are so vibrant and full of color. I always plan for color during my creative portraits with the bride and groom but it is an extra bonus to get it during the ceremony!!! That said planning an outdoor wedding can be really stressful, it becomes even more stressful when your outdoor wedding is being planned from miles away. Nathan and Aurora experienced this stress when planning their St. Louis destination wedding. I would have been overwhelmed but Aurora managed to be calm and pull off a stunning event.

Aurora got ready for her outdoor garden wedding at the Chase Park Plaza. Jaclyn and the STLooks team were on hand to create one of kind hair and makeup up looks for Aurora and her beautiful bridesmaids.

 You may be wondering why these two decided to get married in St. Louis in the first place. Most brides don’t choose to have a destination wedding in the middle of the map! The answer is simple, Nathan and Aurora met here in St. Louis while attending Washington University. They moved from the city after graduation, but it held in a special place in their hearts. They chose to do a sweet first look with one and other before their ceremony at Wash U.

We moved to Lafayette Square for the wedding ceremony. Talk about a perfect day. The weather was amazing and I about lost my breath as Aurora walked over the bridge with her father.
