Stephanie & Will | 9th Street Abbey Reception


What is your favorite photo and why?

This is such a hard question; there are so many great photos to choose from!  We absolutely love the one in the park where I am holding Will’s arm and leaning my head on his shoulder.  We loved this picture so much we made it our album cover!  We also love the one during our first dance where Will brings me back in from a turn and my dress and hair are flared out behind me.  It is such a beautiful candid shot.

Ashley & Tony | Harry’s Restaurant Reception

What is your favorite photo and why?

Tony-I like the photograph of us standing in the middle of market street.

Ashley-I really like the photograph of us standing where we took all the family photographs behind the church. It was a really nice green space and will make for an amazing print to hang in our house. 

How did you two meet?

Tony and I meet through his brother, Steven. Steven was dating a girl named Leslie who happened to be marching the same winterguard that I was. So when I learned that Leslie was dating a guy with two other brothers I asked her if one was single. Everything seemed to fall into place after we met and went on our first date.

Favorite Photo of the Day | City Diner ~ St. Louis Photographers

Why we love this photograph:  I’m a sucker for reflections. (You’ll start to notice reflections as a theme as you follow our work.)   City diner windows with a gorgeous couple and reflections of my favorite city (that would be St. Louis, of course) makes for a great photograph.  I really enjoy taking engagement photos.  It’s rewarding to take beautiful lifestyle photographs of a couple in love.

Favorite Photo of the Day | Anticipated Kiss ~ St. Louis Photographers


Why we love this photograph:  Part of being a good photographer is watching your subjects and anticipating their movements and actions.  Zach and Stacy were very loving and very comfortable in sharing their affection.  When we stopped off at SqWires in Lafayette Square for a drink between the ceremony and reception, I knew there was the potential for some great images.  We just had to pay attention to those brief fleeting moments of emotion.  It was just a brief kiss before he went to go talk to a few of his friends, but I think this moment really express Zach’s love for his new wife.
