Kyle + Miranda | St. Louis Engagement in Forest Park

Kyle and Miranda make one of the cutest couples, not only in appearance but in how much they love each other and interact together. They definitely have no problem playing around and having fun with each other. With Kyle and Miranda, you can see in their eyes and the way they interact that they love each other so much.
We could not believe the weather we got on this January day! It was sunny, bright, and the temperature was ideal. We began our shoot in Forest Park and worked our way into the city of St. Louis for some night shots.  Stopping traffic for a great shot has become one of our favorite things to do on a shoot. The pictures are always well worth it and we really appreciate people being patient with us. We were honored that we had the opportunity to work with them and photograph the beginning of their life together. We can not wait for their rustic June wedding!!

Wayne + Tiarra | St. Louis Wedding / Larimore House Plantation

Wayne and Tiarra’s wedding was at an amazing location, The Larimore House Plantation. The 1858 pre-civil war house, in the Italianate style, has 14 fireplaces and 12-foot ceilings. This old plantation house is an elegant venue for any wedding or event.  Wayne and Tiarra chose beautiful arrangements and settings for their special day. From the horse drawn carriage to the white garden gazebo, their details were perfect!   Despite the normal wedding day nerves, it was easy to see how much they love each other just by watching them interact.  Frequently there seemed to be an expression of love between them. Even small gestures like a gentle caress of the hand or an endearing  glance let everyone know exactly how they feel. We look forward to working with them again in the future and we know they will have a beautiful and happy life together.

Commercial Shoot | City Museum St. Louis

We had the privilege of photographing the amazing City Museum in St. Louis MO. This was a large project and we worked with the Director of the City Museum Rick Erwin III, and the advertising and marketing division from Explore St. Louis.
We had no idea how large this place was. This truly is one of the “must see” locations when visiting St. Louis and a great option if you are wanting something fun to do on the weekend. The City Museum is an enormous playground for all ages to enjoy. They have 24 different slides, some are huge and some are small. Their dizzying height of stairs and stair cases will get anyone’s heart rate up. If running in one place is more your style, there is also a human sized hamster wheel that you can try out. If you’re afraid of the dark, don’t forget your flashlight when going through their labyrinth of caves, tunnels and chutes.  There really is so much to see and do here that it can be overwhelming at first… in a good way.
From a photographers perspective, there are countless shots to be taken here and multiple visits are a necessity when trying to showcase as much as possible. We feel that we could still go back today and have no problem finding different compositions and locations for amazing images. We had so much fun getting to see the City Museum up close and personal while working with the awesome staff at the City Museum and those from Explore St. Louis. Everyone worked together to make this project a success! Because they are always adding new features to the museum, we are looking forward to seeing the new additions on our next visit.
