Nick & Miranda, high school sweethearts tying the knot in 2018!

Hey guys! 

Hope you're having a stellar week. We just wanted to give you a break from your busyness to introduce you to the wonderful Nick and Miranda!!

Help us congratulate them on their recent engagement!! CONGRATULATIONS!!

These two lovebirds are getting married in October 2018 in a St. Louis-themed wedding!! What more could you want!? They trekked over to St. Louis from Kansas City, Missouri so we could capture their love in beautiful Downtown St. Louis! 

And they did just that. 

There were a couple hiccups at City Garden with pink tape everywhere due to the grass just being sprayed, but we still got some really great shots! 

Construction at the St. Louis Arch Grounds was no match for this radiant couple. 

... and what's more romantic than a photographer photographing the Bride-To-Be and her Groom in the middle of a busy Market Street in Downtown St. Louis??

I must also mention their ambition ... Miranda has a background in event planning, and shared with us her future goal to become a wedding planner. She definitely has a lot going for her! Girl is on top of it! :) Her vision and motivation is very admirable. And she's got a really great man by her side all the way. Their dream is to one day own a small business wedding venue to serve people with a valuable wedding experience! 

Oh, back to their pictures ... 

We couldn't hold back sharing these beautiful moments at the Riverfront in Downtown St. Louis with the Eads Bridge stretching across the Mississippi River in the background. Can you feel the emotion between Nick and Miranda? We sure can! Wow!

BUT ... their St. Louis themed engagement session (and wedding) wouldn't be complete without some red at Busch Stadium in Cardinal Nation!!

We'd like to give Nick and Miranda a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS on their engagement!!! We are super happy for you and are so excited for your big day!!! See you soon!

Meet Cadence.

Part Princess ... Part Houdini. 

This beautiful young lady has the ability to stun you with her innocent smile then disappear before your regain your senses. And she's fast. 

While dancing through her entire photo session, she wore that smile that won our hearts! She is rather spunky, a bit of a tomboy (She loved playing in the grass and dirt! Lol!), and is always on the go! (No, really--she never stops moving!)

She's the cherry on top but the foundation is her amazing family. She's got an awesome older brother. A future chick-magnet by trade, and a for sure mini-Steve.

Which brings us to their two top-tier parents that are as awesome as they are kind. Steve and Stacey are the kind of friends you want to keep around for a lifetime. (As long as you don't mention Steve's hair--he's sensitive...)

Steve and Stacey and Gang -- THANK YOU for letting us capture the love of your family!!

Check out the rest of their sneak peeks below!! ⬇️

Much Love,

Summer Vacation Part 2: Crystal Mountain Wedding

If you missed Part 1 in our last post, you can check it out here. Make sure you catch that post and see the adorable Ava and Isaac!!

The weather couldn't have been more perfect (mid 70's and no humidity!) for Levi and DeSiree's wedding day last Saturday, 7/1/17. Their ceremony was at the Congressional Summer Assembly in Frankfort, Michigan, followed by a GORGEOUS wedding reception at the base of the ski lifts of Crystal Mountain Ski Resort in Thompsonville, Michigan.

As we mentioned in our last post (Part 1), for the first time in almost two years, we were wedding guests rather than wedding photographers... but, naturally, we did have our cameras out periodically. Of course--if you'll let me digress for a moment--because we know firsthand just how frustrating it is photographing a wedding when wedding guests are in the way taking their own photos, we were especially aware and respectful of the wedding photographers... even though the wedding photographers were Nikon users! *gasp!* ;) . 

Highlights from the evening were the delectable hors d'oeuvres, the emotional toast speeches from the Father of the Bride, the Maid of Honor, and three Groomsmen, the free ski lift rides, and of course the beautiful scenery of Crystal Mountain.

Below are some of our favorite moments from Levi and DeSiree's wedding reception, including Ava (Nick and Katie's 3-year-old daughter) cutting up the dance floor with the beautiful Bride and Groom...

...more of Ava and Isaac, including a giggle-fit Isaac had in Tiffany's arms, Isaac getting a free ride from Dad (Nick), and Dan being a True Gentleman escorting Ava...

...and the beautiful couple from Chicago, Dan and Erica!! Don't be fooled by where they live...they're probably more outdoorsy than you are! The following morning at 8:00 AM EST, they set off for the south shore of Lake Superior in Michigan's Upper Peninsula for a four-day and three-night hike along the amazing multicolored Pictured Rocks cliffs. Gotta love 'em!!

PS - Part 3 of our trip coming soon! Stay tuned!

Much Love,

TC
