The weather was absolutely beautiful last weekend for Emily and Ethen’s Heritage Chapel wedding in Willard, MO. These two are perfect together – and the beautiful little white chapel was such a wonderful venue for their big day filled with love, happiness, family, and friends. It was a pleasure to have been asked to photograph this day for them!
There are a few weddings I wish I could photograph more than once – and Kayla and Jake’s New Town St Charles wedding would definitely be one of them. I loved working with these two, they are so kind and easy to work with. Not to mention the decor… goodness! So pretty!I was so lucky to have the super talented Sara Cantrell shooting with me for their big day.

I loved having the opportunity to work with Jennifer and Jared for their engagement and wedding photography. Jennifer is an incredibly talented photographer, so it was a huge honor to be asked to capture their day. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to have Corrie Childers shooting with me that day – she’s amazing! Many of her shots below. These two are laid back, fun, and just great to be around in general. I loved all of their vintage details, many of which were family heirlooms – including the beautiful glass beaded jewelry that Jennifer wore as well as her wedding rings. Jared made the beautiful wooden cross they stood under to say their vows. Jared’s mom’s service dog, Jazz was their flower girlThis was such a wonderful, emotional celebration with friends and family, many of whom traveled halfway across the country to be there.
Hermann holds a special place in my heart. It is the most picturesque little German town on the Missouri River. There are several wineries and bed and breakfasts of all kinds, making it the perfect location for a weekend getaway – or weddingAndrea and Justin were married at Stone Hill Winery, one of my favorite locations. The winery sits high on a hill overlooking Hermann, and between the gorgeous old buildings and grapevines it’s a wedding photographer’s dream. These two were stunning together and especially kind and fun to work with!
Catherine and Addisson were married in Sedalia this past June. Their wedding ceremony was at Broadway Presbyterian Church, and goodness… it was beautiful! The woodwork in that church is amazing. Afterward, everyone gathered for their reception at the Sedalia Country Club and had the best time. These two are stunning, and so much fun! Thanks to Sara Cantrell for doing a beautiful job of shooting with me for their big day
