Wedding at St. Louis, MO Clubhouse

It’s always amazing to see how much love and support comes together when a couple holds a St. Louis wedding and becomes married. Julian and Saidah were direct witness to that love and support. However, to keep an even deeper sense of home they decided to bring their big party back to St. Louis, MO.

The day started off very relaxed. Only close friends of the two hung out as they prepared for the night of festivities. They made sure to share shots, laughs, and memories as they celebrated the union of the Pearsons. Once they were ready they headed off to the venue located at The Forest Park Golf Couse ClubHouse.

When they arrived they were greeted by all of their family and friends! Since all of the important stuff was taken care of (I.E. THE NUPTIALS) it was almost immediately down to business. The food was good, the cake was even better, and then there were the toasts. During the toast stories were shared about how their relationships got started. The only thing coming from the Pearson's direction was smiles and laughter. It was easy to see that these two are truly loved. One part of the night that stood out to me was the speech of the Bride’s father; he passed along so much wisdom I caught myself taking mental notes. He also displayed an obvious love and respect for Saidah and Julian. The amazing thing about this is the fact that same notion was the theme of the entire night.

Finally, all of the dancing began once the formalities were in place. The music was pumping and bodies were moving. All of this ended with watching the amazing fireworks on display at the Forest Park Grounds. It was the perfect way to end a perfect evening. Congrats again to Julian and Saidah Pearson. Enjoy the rest of your lives together!

Thank you... St. Louis Best Bridal

Well well well, looky what came in the mail today. It's always cool to be recognized for your work as a St. Louis Wedding Photographer!

The awesome thing about St. Louis Best Bridal is their dedication to helping the bride. When I first got wind that we would be featured, I began to do my research. I found out they feature, and congratulate many couples on their future marriages. This is so awesome because I think everyone deserves that spotlight for such a huge occasion. Their awesomeness doesn't just stop there. In their print magazines, which can be found in St. Louis stores, they give notice to any and every service that a bride may be looking for. This is great because it is a lot of people's first time getting married; meaning they don't necessarily know everything about planning a wedding... HUGE HELP!

I hope I'm fortunate enough to work with St. Louis Best Bridal again. It was great getting to know their team over there.

Our print feature in St. Louis Best Bridal featuring the wonderful story our our couple Kevin and Britt. This is a great surprise.

Be sure to pick up your copy of St. Louis Best Bridal at all Schnucks and Dierberg's stores.

The Best Lenses to Use for your Wedding

MAN! So I just got off the phone with Patrick over at The Black Photographer's Union and he asked if I would write an article for him covering the best lenses to use while shooting a wedding. My answer, OF COURSE! So I gave him and his readers a quick list of what lenses I truly believe to be the greatest and most necessary to use during a wedding!

The Bentleys: Nelson-Atkins Engagement

Nelson-Atkins Museum Engagement

Going into this engagement session at the Nelson-Atkins Museum I was already aware of these two's chemistry. On the one hand you have Bentley; reserved, pensive, yet goofy all the the same breath. On the other hand you have Symone; outgoing, strong willed, and GOOFY still. Sounds like a great mixture of fun characteristics right? Well it was!

As soon as we arrived to our location the day was gloomy (perfect), the weather was cooler than normal (Thank GOD), and the couple was slowly warming up to the idea of having a camera in their face for an hour.

From the BEGINNING, to my surprise (and Bentley's too) he was almost the star of the show. Cracking the most jokes, suggesting poses, and kept the love of his life in all smiles. It really made for a great group of love filled and passionate portraits. I was in love myself. Watching their chemistry, observing the way she looked him in the eyes and vice versa was a great thing to witness. THIS WAS ONLY IN THE FIRST 15 MINUTES OF THE SHOOT!

The later half of the session at our beautiful location was only better. The open fields, clean walls, and arch way of trees made for a great location to capture beauty. The ornament the future Bentleys served as made things just that much more lovable. This place can be used for many different shoot ideas, and it seems that the possibilities within this place are endless. We didn't even explore all that we possible could have. A location so large with such beautiful scenery should be shared with the world.

Enjoy what we were able to create this day; it definitely wasn't the hardest job I've had.. Keep a look out for their wedding as well on September 24th THIS YEAR!

The Williamses: Machinists Hall - St. Louis, MO

The Williams’ wedding was truly a tear jerker. Not just for the bride, but for many that witnessed their union as well. There is no doubt that everything this couple produces is beautiful; from their daughter who oozes with personality, friends that love and support like no other, to their purple and gold themed décor.

Finding a beautiful location in St. Louis was no issue either, given every aspect of this day was appealing to the eye. Their coordinator turned The Machinist hall into something like no other. It was great being able to spend time with this family, as they are a lot of fun! The beautiful Mrs. Williams with her big heart, and the hilarious Mr. Williams made this day one to enjoy; not just for me to capture, but for everyone who attended. Enjoy some snippets of the story below!

The Quinns: Cellar 222 - Kansas City, MO

In March we got to participate in this country boy and this city girl's wedding over in Kansas City, and it was quite a treat. The hints of glitter weren't the only sparks in the building. Their love lit up the romantically dim lighting of Cellar 222. Perfect weather, food, and Ashley's blush pink wedding dress made stepping into spring one to be remembered.

There is no joy like seeing two families become one. Shane and Ashley's wedding was filled with quite a few tear jerks, but the highlight of the evening is when the bride and groom began reciting their vows. Shane bowed down and placed a ring on the bride's daughter's hand, and expressed his commitment in being the best step-father he could be. Such a joy to capture.

St. Louis Wedding in a Beautiful Backyard: The Pellegrinos

That moment when you're putting together a wedding and you just so happen to be two of the best chef's in St. Louis. Its so cool to be blessed as a St. Louis Wedding Photographer and St. Louis Wedding Videographer when we have clients like these two. If there is one thing you can count on besides a beautiful ceremony and a fun party, its AMAZING FOOD. That was the exact outcome of Kevin and Brittany Pellegrino's wedding in April. It was so cool to be able to capture the women getting ready in the exact room where Brittany grew up. Being able to listen to all of the stories and memories being shared made me feel like a part of the family. Everyone was so happy to see these two become one.

This day was filled with so much love, joy, tears, smiles, and CHEERS it was definitely one of my favorites. It was definitely unforgettable since a hurricane broke out in the middle of the reception! The winds were so hard the tent was blowing, there was even hail, but that didn't stop the show. The band kept jamming and the food continued to be served. Since these two are chefs its no wonder the catering was AMAZING. However, it's not everyday that you see the groom actually pick up a knife on his wedding day. I remember turning around and seeing Kevin, knife in hand, carving away at a MASSIVE hog being served to the guests. This was definitely as sight to see. A true testament to their character; that even on his wedding day he wants to serve and help others.

I can't wait to see what the future has in store for these two as they take on the catering world themselves. Thanks for allowing us to be a part of your day!

The first kiss of a lifetime to go as Mr. and Mrs. Pellegrino.
