Briar Funke's First Year! // St. Charles Family Photography

I have  been wanting to share all of this sweetness with you for quite some time now!

I have had the amazing opportunity to capture so many beautiful families as they grow (some even before mom & dad say "I DO") - it truly is such an honor & such a joy!  So, I wanted to put a little post together from one of my First Year Packages to give everyone an idea of how important & awesome it is to document all of the beautiful growth that takes place in such a short amount of time!  (I'll try to post a couple more families soon too!)

I believe it really is so important to have precious images like these to cherish many many years from now - right?!  & not just for you, but for your kiddo's too!  Don't we all love looking back at photos of us & our parents from years ago?  It's always good to have something to look back on & remember the joy &  beauty in these fleeting moments!  

If you're interested in having this sweet season of your life captured please check out some of the details on my CONTACT page & send me a message - I'll get back to you with lots of details, answer all of your questions, & we can make some plans to freeze a few of life's blissful moments for you!

Chuck + Colleen // Kemoll's Top of the Met, St. Louis Wedding Photography

I have had this GORGEOUS wedding in the que to blog for quite some time now, but I've been so busy keeping up with all of my current amazing clients that I haven't been able to sit down & put words to these lovely images.  Now is the time!  Also, I still can't believe that Christmas is next weekend (anyone else want to do their fall over in slow motion with me?), so blogging a fall wedding still makes sense to me.  haha

Colleen & Chuck are two of the sweetest people ever!  They are both full of life & love & working with them was such a joy!  The weather for their fall wedding was absolutely perfect - the kind of day that if I wasn't shooting a wedding I would say, "this is a perfect day for a wedding!" haha.  Every detail was gorgeous & special.  They were surrounded (quite literally - their wedding party was HUGE) by so many people that love & support them.  & I'm just so excited to finally share their day with you!  Enjoy!

Anthony + Madeline // Silver Oaks Chateau St. Louis Wedding Photography

I am SO excited to finally be sharing this gorgeous wedding!  This adorable couple, this amazing venue, the perfect November weather, & every little detail that made this wedding an absolute joy to capture!  Remember their sweet rainy day Engagement Session?

Silver Oaks Chateau is one of those rare & amazing venues that has been thought out so well - there is so much attention to detail that literally everywhere you look is lovely.  I mean, just look at that ceiling through the window in the first image!  I can't wait to capture lots more weddings here in the future!

Madee & Tony have been such a joy to work with!  They are one of those couples that just falls into each other & you can really tell how much love they share by how they look at each other.  I was fighting back tears this whole day because it was just so sweet!  I hope you enjoy scrolling through all of the beautiful images from their perfect fall wedding (I must warn you, it's a doozy...I had a hard time narrowing down what images to show because they were all so wonderful!).

Every couple in the wedding party came in to their own song & did a little dance - it was so fun & unique!  Tony & his groomsmen even serenaded Madee to "You've Lost that Lovin Feeling" after they entered.  The DJ also had cards on each table with the title to a famous song, show, or movie & when you heard that song played it was your turn to hit the buffet...my table was Friends.  haha  It was such a fun way to dismiss the tables.

Theresa + Hank // Piper Palm House // St. Louis Wedding Photography

I have so many weddings from this past year that I want/need to share - but it's crazy how hard it is for me to stop working on my current projects to put together blog posts!  So sorry about that!  I always say I'm going to do better, but let's be honest, I can't promise that.  haha  SO, for now I'll just share weddings & fun sessions as often as I can & hope that y'all enjoy the surprises they are when they come.

This gorgeous wedding was so much fun!  I went to high school with Theresa & was so excited when she contacted me (from Italy, where she was stationed) to capture this special day for her & Hank!  The two of them met while they were serving in the Army & have been through lots of amazing adventures together - it was so beautiful to see their families rally around them with so much love & support.

Theresa, Hank, & their families came from all over for this celebration because Theresa wanted to be married in the same beautiful little chapel where she had her 1st Communion.

Congratulations again Theresa & Hank!  I had so much fun celebrating with you two & capturing the start of your happy life together!

Cecily & Adella's 1st Birthday // St. Charles Family Photography

So, I was just thinking about these two adorable little ladies & realized that I never posted their First Birthday Session!!  Gasp!  haha  So, since they are so stinking adorable & since I've already posted their Newborn & 7 month sessions - I just had to show the conclusion to their wonderful First Year Package.  
It was so much fun getting to watch these two littles grow & change in their first year of life!  I'm sure they'll have their crazy sister moments throughout the years, but I think they will most definitely be best friends through it all - you can already tell what a sweet bond they have with each other.  I hope I'm able to see more of them through the years & capture them throughout their journey of sisterhood.

Michelle + Craig // Bear Creek Golf Club, Wentzville Wedding Photography

& now it's time to share Michelle & Craig's bright, cheerful, intimate, summer wedding!  YAY!
(just in case you want to take a peek at their sweet autumn engagement session you can see it HERE)  

I just love how simple & beautiful all of their details were - they fit their personalities perfectly!  These two love taking hikes together & being outside - thus the beautiful wild flowers, photos in a big field, outdoor ceremony,  & all around relaxed vibe of their day.  & it also explains why they promptly packed up after their honeymoon & moved to Colorado.  haha  I enjoyed every minute of this sweet wedding - I hope you enjoy the images we were able to capture too!

Craig, in all of his many talents, made this ring box!  SO special!

Outdoor summer wild flowers wedding photography, Quail Ridge Park, Bear Creek Golf Club // www.inspiredphotographystl.com

I love doing first looks with my couples - I mean look at these reactions!  It's so special because it's just the two of them (as well as me & my assistant tucked away from them a bit) in a quiet spot where they can see each other for the first time on their wedding day & spend a few minutes loving on each other & sharing in the excitement of their day.  When my assistant & I were driving Michelle to the park to meet up with Craig  she could hardly contain her excitement - she said their first look is the thing she has been looking forward to the most!  I'm so glad it was so exciting for them & that they were able to get some quiet time together before the craziness of being around people all day & moving from one thing to the next.

It's always great when I can have lots of time alone with the bride & groom before/after the wedding party photos - it seems to be a little more relaxing without the peanut gallery commenting on everything we're doing...even though that can be pretty entertaining too though.  haha

A little storm kinda blew in on us just as we were finishing up photos at Quail Ridge Park - so they may have gotten a little wet in the field for this photo & then running to the cars.  But they were all good sports & were totally dry by the time we reached Bear Creek Golf Club for their Ceremony...

They have a fun family tradition at the Lake of the Ozarks every 4th of July - it's a big parade & each family has a theme they always use - so, since Craig & Michelle always do a patriotic theme everyone put on a surprise patriotic parade at their reception just for them - it was a pretty fun bonus!
