Happy 2016! (2015 recap)

What an amazing year 2015 was, I am almost sad to see it go. I experienced so many wonderful firsts this year, most photography related. I shot 25 of the best weddings possible in 2015, huge thank you to all of the wonderful couples that booked me and spent the most important days of their lives with me. We will be forever friends now. 

Some of my favorite moments of 2015:

I shot a SURPRISE wedding! No one new but the bride, groom, and me that there was going to be a wedding that day. The guests were surprised, but the couples children were over the moon in happiness for their parents. Here are some of my favorite candid moments from this wedding: 

I photographed an elopement at The Butterfly House! The couple had an officiant, me, and their daughter to witness. I even got to sign their marriage certificate (probably a once in a lifetime opportunity for me!) Here are some beautiful moments from that very emotional day. 

I photographed my first ever same sex wedding. This was right after the federal ruling that made same sex weddings legal. I need to blog this elegant day (one of my goals for next year, be a better blogger!). Here are some moments from their beautiful portraits at the crystal garden. 

I shot a biker wedding on the Fourth of July! There is a blog post on this special wedding. My favorite moments were the formals at Shady Jacks Biker Saloon. Here is a preview of some of my favorites from that wedding. 

This gorgeous wedding at the Old Rock House, a first for this venue and one of my most favorite weddings of 2015.

This beautiful ceremony at the City Museum... with star wars references in their nuptials. 

These firsts and many more, but I want to leave you with one more. 2015 was my first year I was picked by my viewers and clients for the 2016 couples pick for wedding photographers in st. Louis. Thank you so much for an amazing year! I am looking forward to how 2016 will top this!!
