Rocky + Michael – Watershed Nature Center Wedding – Edwardsville Illinois Wedding Photographer

Many years ago (more than I’d like to think about) Rocky and I went to high school together. We went to a small high school in St. Louis, one you may not be familiar with, so almost everyone knew each other. Rocky and I weren’t close friends, but we’d share acknowledging smiles, both of us […]

Lucky enough for them, and for their friends and family, something did. The wedding was intimate and perfect. Friends and family traveled from nearby St.Louis towns and many hailed from Nebraska, where […]

Alexandra + Jason – Scott Outdoor Adventure Retreat Wedding – Illinois Wedding Photographer

With Alexandra and Jason, their friends knew something was different. The way they talked about each other. The way they looked at each other. There was the normal flutters of a brand new relationship, but still something wasn’t the same as it had been. They were in love. And everyone knew it. When the time was finally […]

Three Reasons Why Photographers Like The First Look

When I started in the wedding industry, I didn’t realize that tiny parts of the wedding day can be pretty controversial. On top of that, everyone has their own opinion and there’s conflicting opinions on almost every topic. From who pays the bill to seating charts to how to address your invitations, all sorts of people you’ve […]
