st. louis best wedding photographer

St. Louis weddings in September are delightful. The intense heat of summer is gone but the beauty of my favorite season still remains. The most delightful thing about weddings isn’t the weather though, it’s that I am let into the intimate sweet moments that each couple and their families share as the events of a once in a lifetime occasion happen. Kaylin and Ryan had too many sweet moments to count. One of my favorites was how both Kaylin and her mom bubbled over with emotions as Kaylin’s dressed was being zipped. As a mom of a preteen girl I see myself getting closer and closer to the day when I too will zip a dress up and look upon my baby dressed in white and it just chokes me up!

Every moment of Kaylin and Ryan’s wedding didn’t pull at my heart strings; some moments had me laughing uncontrollably. Ryan is blessed enough to have two best friends and together they were some of the funniest groomsmen I have ever had the pleasure of photographing.  It was amazing to see the bond these guys shared!  Since I am listing great moments in this amazing wedding day, another high point was including Kaylin and Ryan’s beautiful and much love dog Oakley in some of their wedding photos. I love love love love LOVE when couples include their dogs!

I am also a softie when it comes to the daddy daughter dance and Kaylin and her dad has the sweetest one yet. He played a Disney song from her childhood and he danced with her

Congratulations to you both! I loved being part of your day.
