I should have always had this habit, but I am going to start posting at least one image from a wedding the moment I get home. This was today’s. Russel & Kylie. Some of the most awesome people I know. Congratulations guys. Many years of awesomeness lie ahead and remember marriage is what you make of it! Woot woot! @stlpinup #wedding #stlwedding #bride #weddingday #weddingphoto #groom #love # cute #stlouisgram #stlgram #stl #stlouis #stlpwg #theknot #shesaid yes #bestdayever #married

It’s been a LONG while since we’ve posted here on the site! I just wanted to give anyone who might be coming to the site an update! We are BUSY! WOOT WOOT! Family photos, weddings, commercial traveling, wedding traveling, senior sessions, and editing. Lots and lots of editing! Here are some statistics:

Bear in mind that I work a full time job (that I LOVE!) as a full time commercial photographer for an in-house marketing firm:

6 Engagement Sessions

5 Senior Session

20 Family Sessions

5 Weddings

17 Days out of Town Shooting

1 Suicide Squad Shoot

And it has been a blast! I have so much work to show everyone and post. Portfolios need to be updated, blogs need to be written, and images need to be delivered! Woot woot! Here’s just a few of the recent samples!

Had an absolutely amazing time today during this shoot. Janel and Lexie were an absolute blast. As promised, I always post up one shot and here

Always love me some ring shots. As a wedding photographer, I find it fun just to look around the reception and see what puzzle pieces I have to put together to create something cool, and to showcase the symbol of a couples commitment to each other! #wedding #stlwedding #stl #saintlouis #bling #bestdayever #shesaidyes #isaidyes #engagementring #weddingring #jewelry #diamonds #bride #theknot #stlphotographer

This was not planned, this was just taking advantage of a situation as it happened. I am realizing more and more that being a photographer is like two sides of a coin. You have the heavy production stuff that takes planning and forethought, then you have stuff like this. We had about 30 seconds to get this shot. In that time, I had to light it, figure out my comp, give direction to the model, and then execute. No way I could have done this in the beginning of my career. #professional #professionalphotographer #epic #seniorphotos #orchardfarm #pro #bikers #bikerlife #highway #farm #stl #stlphoto #stlphotographer #model #saintlouis #fitness #moment #perfect #perefcttiming
