St. Louis + Destination


St. Louis Wedding Photography

This day marked the bittersweet conclusion of a wedding trilogy that began several years ago. Our journeys together began in 2015 with Casey (pictured below, bottom-left) and Kevin’s wedding, followed by Sarah and Zachary’s wedding day celebration in the Spring of 2017 (Sarah is pictured below, on her wedding day). And finally, this September I photographed Emiley and Casey’s wedding at the beautiful Weingarten Winery in Belleville, Illinois. I’ve been lucky to have worked with these ladies, their spouses, and all of their wonderful families. Thank you all for your warmth and kindness over the years, it has been such a pleasure!


All of the girls together at Sarah & Zach’s wedding last year.


the weingarten winery

The Weingarten is a beautiful Illinois winery located in the city of Belleville. The sprawling, yet intimate property is surrounded by a forest and cornfields. Only a 20 minute drive from downtown St. Louis, the Weingarten is a quick retreat from the city. They have a terrific team of coordinators to help you plan your wedding or event!

Casey and Emiley’s Ring Bearer offers a thoughtful prayer before the Bride arrives.

The Bride arrives by a horse-drawn carriage. A moment after, her father gives her away.

It really has been such a joy working with all of these wonderful people over the years.
I cannot thank you all enough for allowing me to document your most celebratory days.
Wishing the new couple a lifetime of love, happiness and adventure.
