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 ...

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

One of my favorite parts of being a wedding photographer is when I get to work with the same family multiple times.  I first met Stacey & Tim when I photographed Stacy's brother's wedding a few years ago.  (Charlie & Dana were married on May 4th and had a "May the Fourth Be With You/Star Wars" themed wedding!)  Being able to work with the Akers again and welcome The Buskes to the ATP Family was one of the highlights of last year for me.  Their wedding was classic, elegant, and timeless.  From the tailored navy blue suits with vests to the gorgeous bridesmaids dresses, every detail was perfectly matched.  They had so many personal touches on their big ...

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

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. ...

Sarah + Bart: An Abbie Takes Pictures Wedding Day
Friday, November 08, 2013

Sarah and Bart came to ATP through one of our most favorite couples (Amanda & Casey Barrale: Married 2011!). From the moment I met Sarah and Bart, I've adored them! We went to lunch after their engagement session, and sat for hours just chatting and getting to know each other.  They are a fun, loving, and gracious couple, and it was our honor to photograph their big day. We had absolutely perfect weather, and a huge bridal party full of hilarious folks!!  Their families were truly attentive to everyone's needs throughout the day, and the emotions were so sweet and touching.  Lots of happy tears were shed that day! Here's a little bit more about the couple...ATP: How did ...
