Every wedding has its own unique elements that make it special, but some weddings have just a little bit extra. Usually for me, that has to do with family. Kacey and Matt’s wedding was unique in that it was a joining of families. Matt came into the relationship with four amazing kids, and anytime you have a situation like that, it can go various ways. But it was amazing for us to see how excited they were. Kacey and Matt have been together since 2016, so everyone has already seen each other as family for a long time. But this made it official, and it was amazing to see how much the kids love her (which was especially on display when Matt’s oldest son Jack gave a very moving and loving speech at the start of the reception). It was such a blessing to see. We were thrilled to be a small part, and here are some of our favorites from the day. Huge congrats to Kacey, Matt and the rest of the family!

Lindsay & Matt are a great couple. They are both very giving people who make each other laugh a lot. You can’t help but enjoy being around them! They both have a great appreciation for photography – in fact one of Lindsay’s bridesmaids is a fellow photographer, and was the one who recommended they book us. (Thanks Jennifer!) So by the time the wedding day got here, we were very excited to get to capture the start of their forever!

This fabulous couple lives in one of our favorite areas of St. Louis, LaFayette Square, and walk their two fur babies regularly in LaFayette Park, so naturally they wanted to have their wedding photos taken in the place they call home. It was a busy, hot day at the park, so we were trying to keep things moving as quickly as possible. But as Lindsay walked up the path to see Matt for the first time, time just stopped for a minute, and they both had sweet expressions of pure joy and love as they shared the first look of their wedding day.

And that joy was the pervading feeling for the day. From Lindsay personally putting together all the flowers for the wedding – with some bridesmaid help to the snow cone truck she had come as a surprise late night treat, through it all there was lots of beauty and fun! And they kept it all close to home with both the ceremony and reception happening in Soulard’s 9th Street Abbey, one of our favorite venues. All in all a fabulous day worthy of two very special people. Congratulations you two!

Winter is gone! We (Joel & Shannon) had our first wedding of the year with a bride that has been a bridesmaid at a handful of weddings we have photographed, and we were so glad that it was her turn! Katie and Eric first met at his sister’s wedding. She was a sorority sister of Katie’s and she had always heard the girls talk about this brother that she had never met. When the wedding came, it was her chance to meet him, and in her words, “I went for it.”

Katie and Eric’s wedding day was as beautiful a spring day as you could imagine. When you are in very early spring, you always run the risk of tricky weather, but thankfully we had nothing but sunshine! One huge bonus was that two of our former brides were in the wedding as well…and that always makes us even more excited for a wedding. The ceremony was at the beautiful Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Columbia, IL, and this is a church we know well from the past few years.  When the ceremony was over at came time for photos, one thing very important to Eric was to do some photos with his family’s tow truck. Eric is the third generation to work in the family business (http://www.bolinservices.com/), so that was a fun first for us.  The reception was at the Palladium, and it was actually our first time working there…amazing place.

Here are some of our favorites from the day. Huge congrats to you both! Thank you so much for letting us be a part!
