Our most ambitious engagement film to date, this six-minute music video of Jenna and Drew tells the story of the preparation for the biggest day of their lives. It was shot over several weeks in St. Louis and Chesterfield at such places as Washington Avenue, the Missouri Athletic Club, Simply Elegant Bridal Shop, and Bella’s Frozen Yogurt Cafe.
You get to visit some pretty cool spots as a wedding photographer. For Ashley and Alex’s engagement session, we made the trip down to Farmington, which is a midsized town situated in scenic southeastern Missouri, almost dead center between the towns of Festus, Cape Girardeau, and Rolla. Ashley and Alex said they wanted a classic Victorian look, so we got a hold of some antique furniture and waited for sunset!
Renee and Tanner, your New Year’s Eve wedding was gorgeous. Thanks for being such troupers in the cold! We hope your same-day edit was worth all the shivering!
Thanks to Holy Trinity Church in Fairview Heights and Turner Hall in Columbia for being easy to work with!
Congrats to Erica and Cody! You guys were fabulous to work with, and we loved the venues you chose (the World’s Fair Pavilion in Forest Park, and the Studio Inn in St. Albans).
Kelley and Jared were married on 7/11, so on the way to the church we stopped by — where else? — the 7-Eleven gas station. Believe it or not, this was the first time we worked Slurpees into a couple’s wedding photos! The ceremony was at Webster Hills United Methodist Church in Webster Groves, and the reception was at the Old Rock House, just a few blocks from Busch Stadium.
Having an outdoor wedding in early July always carries the risk of sweltering weather, but Dana and Matt somehow received beautiful springlike temperatures for their July 3rd wedding at the Lemp Mansion (the ceremony was outdoors and the reception was indoors at Lemp’s Grand Hall). And being Independence Day Eve, we just had to work in the stars and stripes!
The New Town area of St. Charles looks good on any day, but it looked especially gorgeous on Mary and Dan’s wedding day in early June. This wedding had a lot going for it — good weather, a great couple, and a very photogenic classic car to boot! Thanks to the New Town Chapel and the Heart of St. Charles for being so easy to work with!
A freezing January day could not keep Jamie and Tyler indoors for their wedding photos, and the results were worth every shiver! Thanks for sticking it out, guys! The ceremony and reception were at Chandler Hill in Defiance, Missouri, and location photos were shot at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery in St. Louis.
