angie + corey { wedding preview }

A couple of weeks ago I got an interesting phone call. The woman on the other end of the line was excited. It sounded like she was in a car. Turns out she was. Her name was Tabitha and her best friend Angie and her fiancee Corey had decided to get married… the next day.

Angie and Corey have been together for several years. They’ve been planning to get married but with the way life goes sometimes, they just hadn’t gotten around to it. Instead of putting it off any longer they just decided to just do it. They jumped in the car with their closest friends and headed to St. Louis where they first met. They didn’t have a pastor, location, or photographer… but they were going to get married.

Corey had seen my wedding photography online and asked Tabitha to give me a call as they zoomed down interstate 55. Fortunately I wasn’t booked and I was able to reschedule the plans I had. They found a location and a minister (and with a stop to get dresses, suits, and shoes) they got married at about 48 hours after they stared planning the wedding.

I love this little guy.

To recap, the drove down from Wisconsin on Friday (when they called me), got married about 5:00 PM on Saturday, and drove back to Wisconsin that night. Talk about whirlwind!

erin + brandon { maternity session }

I got a call a few weeks ago from Erin inquiring about maternity photography. I have a fair amount of family photography on the website (Little Charlie and Little Claire for example) but I didn’t have any maternity or newborns. When I asked Erin how she found me she said The Knot!

Erin just recently moved to St. Louis but wanted someone with a similar style as her wedding photographer back east. I am especially flattered they chose me for their maternity photography because of the caliber of photographers with maternity photography experience on The Knot.

Erin and her husband Brandon come over this past weekend. They were so patient and accommodating as I tried out some ideas. I’m really excited to photograph their new daughter over the next year.

Erin wasn’t interested in the usual bare belly pictures. She likes the candid and natural style of my wedding photography.  But I’m happy she let me take this one!

I’m excited to see the little feet that will go in these little booties. It’s also neat that this blanket is one of Brandon’s family treasures.

After we finished shooting at the studio we went over to the City Garden. I love it when the weather in February feels like weather in April.

I’m excited to take this photograph again…. with their daughter holding their hands between them!
