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 ...

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 ...

Teilla & Taquan: Married: St. Louis, MO Wedding: Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch

Teilla & Taquan ("TQ") have the sweetest spirits.  From the moment we first chatted, I was in love with them.  They are gentle, loving, kind... all the qualities you would want in a couple you have to photograph!  These are also qualities that make them perfect for each other.  They balance each other out in the best ways!  I was lucky enough to spend a few days with them where they live in Austin, Texas earlier last year.  They had recently relocated there when TQ got a job offer he couldn't refuse. They had me come down there to photograph their engagement session.  (You can see it HERE.)  I really got to know them on that trip, and it was such ...

Take the most kind-hearted, compassionate, hard-working nurse and pair her with the most social, energetic, kind man... and you've got yourself Erin & Ryan.  This couple joined the 2016 ATP Wedding Family early last summer and I'd been looking forward to their engagement session for quite some time.  When we first met, I knew I wanted to travel to Columbia, MO (and to the Mizzou Campus!) to take their photos for this session.   Columbia is where they met and fell in love.  Through college their relationship blossomed into the love of a lifetime.  They even told me about "this huge tree in the middle of a field"v and I knew exactly what they were talking about ...
