Chelsea & Dusty:: married

 

I’ve been looking forward to this wedding since last year.

Chelsea & Dusty crossed paths with me randomly at first… we were all regulars at the local coffeeshop, then they started coming to my monthly photobooth downtown. Since then, they’ve become the most regular of my regulars… every month, coming up with an idea for every theme. (below shot was actually captured 5 days after the wedding).

So, I was asked to be their wedding photographer, and, of course, we had to do a photobooth AT the wedding.

The day was AMAZING… fantastic weather, a live band at the reception (Deadeye), lots of laughs, and a beautiful location… Keltoi Winery, near Carthage, MO. The couple worked hard on the details and it shows. Hope you enjoy this batch- it’s a fun mix of goofy and pretty. 🙂

Tory:: senior, 2016

Really enjoyed this unconventional senior session with miss Tory. We hung out downtown and got several different looks, tapping into Tory’s love for books, coffee, dancing (ballet) and the rock n’ roll vibe.

I have to put a shout out right at the beginning to little Sophia & her mom Justine… as a coincidence, they are both neighbors and friends to Tory AND are regular clients of mine. Justine recommended me to Tory as her photographer, AND these two hung out for the whole shoot to help with wardrobe and transportation (and moral support, of course). 🙂

quick pause; the background used below is actually a gigantic, awesome mural painted singlehandedly by my good friend, Taylor Kubicek. The guy brought a lot of color to the downtown scene… and he does do (smaller than a building) commissioned pieces. You should check out his work here.

Alex + Wendy = married

It’s that wedding time of year. But this one, I didn’t expect…

My best friend called me up one week to let me know he’d be in St Louis (he currently lives in Brooklyn, NY) for a wedding. It just so happened, the friend getting married had a photographer drop out on them the week before the big day. Not very nice, photographer. So we worked out logistics, I got a chance to hang out with my buddy, and they got a wedding photographer… namely, me.

The attendees of this particular day were some of the most diverse I’ve encountered within a single event.

You see, Alex is a theology professor. So, as you can imagine, his groomsmen were a bunch of nerdy (meant as a supreme compliment, fellas) genius Ph.D professors/writers. Let me tell you, I’m 99% certain I was the lowest IQ in the room…

Wendy, is from Ghana. And a good chunk of family & friends from her home country made it to a little town outside of St Louis, Missouri to celebrate.

1/2 of the room… spunky Africans. 1/2 of the room… white professors.

All of them were absolutely wonderful, kind people; the kindest of all being Wendy and Alex, of course. I’ve rarely seen a more thankful, humble, and truly in-love couple than these.

And Lance… thanks for making this happen. And also, for running around downtown with me, taking random pictures that I’m sure to post at some bored point in the dead of winter.
