Well, without further ado, I'd like to announce that I'm now offering video services!! This comes after so many of my couples have asked me time and time again, "Do you offer video, too?".  I just felt like it was the right time to jump into this new journey!  Right now I'm only offering video to my couples that have signed a photography contract with us for 2017/2018. I am looking to open up video options to the public towards to end of 2017.  Myself and my staff photographer Casey Serr (who's specialty is video) have been working together with several of our couples this past year to perfect this process. (We had several couples sign up to be our guinea pigs! LOL) We are ...

Liza + Casey: Married: A Washington, MO Wedding at The Vineyard at Riverbend Chapel

Liza & Casey were married on a Sunday afternoon last October on one of the most gorgeous days of the year.  Their ceremony and reception were at The Vineyard at Riverbend Chapel in Washington, MO.  These guys live in Washington, so their choice was easy on where to get married.  This venue is stunning!  The chapel is full of natural light and the vineyards were perfectly picturesque.  They even have cottages on the grounds!My favorite part of their wedding day was that they wanted pictures at their house with their dog after the reception was over.  I LOVE being able to really take custom images that truly capture the essence of the people I'm ...

To say that Shannon & Zach are HUGE movie buffs is quite an understatement.  During my first meeting with them, I would venture to say that Zach quoted no less then 10 movies during our first hour of conversation at their bridal consult!  They have transformed their basement into a theater where they have weekly movie nights.  They even host an annual Oscar Party with all of their friends (where formal attire is required) complete with a red carpet, awards, speeches, statuettes, and even paparazzi! (I mean, seriously... how awesome is that?!)As I got to know these two, I knew they needed an engagement session as fun and unique as they are.  I approached them about an ...

BIG NEWS...

First of all - let me say how excited I am to announce that this wedding was published in the 2016 Spring/Summer issue St. Louis Bride Magazine!Liz & Ellen were married on one of the hottest days last summer.  However, the heat was never really a big factor in their day.  Everyone was so happy and laid back that it was one of the best weddings we shot last year!  They chose to get married in St. Louis at Ellen's parent's house.  It could quite possibly be one of my most favorite houses in this city.  From the incredible front and back yards, to the lovely charm that the architecture has... it just warms your heart the minute you pull up in the driveway. ...

Hawaii: Through My Eyes: St. Louis-based Boudoir Photographer

BIG NEWS...

A many of you know, I'm currently vacationing in Hawaii.  I cannot begin to tell you how increidbly stunning this place is.  Every turn on every road, every view from each beach I've visited... one visual is more gorgeous then the next.  It's seriously surreal.  It truly feels like something out of movie because it seems so unreal.  I'm humbled seeing this kind of landscape because it really makes me feel so incredibly small in this HUGE universe.  (Don't get me wrong - I LOVE Saint Louis - but c'mon... HAWAII??!!  WOW.  Just WOW!!)Everytime I travel, people always say "I can't wait to see all of your awesome pictures!".  To be completely ...
