…Krysta and her Joseph…
She is a dancer…he is a med student…and when they are together all eyes are on the two of them. They are so kind and loving towards each other in such a natural way. It’s such a joy to be around. I can NOT wait for their wedding in June.
Just you wait until you see her dress. I die. You will too.
Stay tuned because I have a wedding that took place at St. Alban’s coming your way soon!
…so 2013 is upon us. It is so surreal because 2012 was such a blur. The year flew by and my children changed SO much.
I am part of Projectlife365 on Instagram. Yours truly is a featured artist in their field guide, which means I have to stick to it. LOL. You should check it out and follow me on Instargam. While I’m at it, hop on over to my facebook page and like me over there too. P.s. You don’t have to REALLY like me…just click a button. (wink)
Reflecting back on 2012, I feel so blessed. We did lots of traveling. My job as a wedding photographer led us to some amazing places…the Dominican Republic, Chicago, Colorado, and the vast beauty of Missouri and Illinois.
2013 will be taking me to Seattle, Chicago again, and other places I have yet to discover. It is so exciting when I think about the places I may reach this year.
The mid-west is and will always be home though. I have a t-shirt that I wear proudly(about 4 days of the week) that says “Midwest is Best” with a picture of Missouri on it. Dorothy said it best…”there’s no place like home”.
Families like the Yeager’s are the reason this saying came about. Them and the vast landscapes that have defined the Mid-west ‘s character.
I am honored to capture the spirit of the families at the Heart of this great country.
XOXO Happy New Year.
…Cassidy and her Drew…
Cassidy and her Drew are from STL but currently reside in NYC, no doubt making the city that much cooler with their presence. They choose to have their wedding back home on Smith Hill with all of their closest family and friends. It was such a fun occasion filled with laughter, joy, and and some of the coolest cats around. Oh and some of the cutest kids I have ever seen.
Happy Mr and Mrs!
the reception was a blast and enjoyed by all in attendance…and yes, that’s an ice cream truck! Drew was always sad as a kid, when the ice cream truck would never come to the top of his hill…well mom and dad made it happen this day!!
…I’ll have time for a real post. Soon…
This picture made me think of Stevie Nick’s song “Gypsy”….”that I was….”
my heart is overflowing with gratitude to everyone in my life that unconditionally loves, supports, encourages and inspires me. thank you thank you thank you.
Tomorrow I’m cooking in the kitchen with my momma. I can’t wait!
