2018

I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream.
— Sleeping Beauty

Clayton and Melanie are such a beautiful couple!

This dream couple met in the Ozarks and began dating in May 2014. Their fairytale life kicked off with a Disney World proposal after an epic turn of events. (This is the BEST!!!) Melanie was surprising Clayton with a Disney trip for graduation, but his parents knew he wanted to propose so they told him! Clayton ended up recruiting both his family and Melanie’s family and planned a surprise proposal in Disney World during (what Melanie thought!) HIS own surprise trip!!!

Well, maybe that’s not the ONLY epic turn of events … the first one being the fact that Melanie said she did not like him when they first met!!!

This is clearly a WIN-WIN for both parties 😁

We LOVED laughing with this couple and shooting their engagement pictures at Tower Grove Park in St. Louis, Missouri.

Send over a CONGRATULATIONS to this lovely couple. They’ll be getting married in 2019 at the St. Charles Presbyterian Church followed by a Jefferson Underground reception!

Much Love and CONGRATULATIONS to you, Clayton and Melanie!

Ryan & Cheryl's Engagement Session at Creve Coeur Lake

This lovely evening was all about Ryan and Cheryl! We were blessed with phenomenal weather for their engagement session at Creve Coeur Lake in Maryland Heights, St. Louis, Missouri. They have been dating since high school and their wedding is set for October 19, 2018 at Defiance Ridge Vineyard!! We just love October weddings and can't wait for their big day!

Vijay + Cassie + Stella 🐶 in Kirkwood, MO


It's crazy to think how "busy" we allow ourselves to be. How wrapped up we are in our own to-do lists and schedules. But it's essential to remember to take a moment every now and then push pause on the world around us, to breathe, and reflect on the roads that led us to our current place. We don't do it near enough. And I'll go out on a limb here to say that you don't either. But we should strive to each day. Because it's important. 

Because there are moments every day that are often overlooked.  Moments that, if we seize them, could have a profound impact on the life of another human being. These are the moments that make up our life's roadmap and define the person we are today. 

Vijay, we could not have predicted that working together at a bank could create a friendship. I'm thankful for the mutual interest in Apple, iOS apps, golf, and the stock market that sparked conversation. Because today we have an awesome friendship with you and Cassie, two amazing people that are kindhearted, selfless, passionate, and driven to become the best version of yourselves ... and you're perfect for each other. It's so refreshing to spend time with you two and witness the strength of your love for one another. It's radiating in your portraits we took at Kirkwood Park and Walker Lake last weekend in Kirkwood, Missouri!! So glad we got to meet Stella, too! Guess we'll have to plan another date soon to introduce Stella and Audi!
