St. Charles Wedding Photographer/St. Charles Styled Shoot at The White Owl

This was my first ever styled shoot and I have to admit I might be addicted. Getting all the details together, low pressure to get amazing shots, and just laid back fn. It also totally helps that Megan & Tyler are so happy in love that it burst through my camera. I met Megan through a job as well as college quite a few years ago. Seeing her grown up and happy in love was such a blessed bonus to this shoot. Tyler is hilarious and constantly made her laugh, which always rocks pictures. 

I also need to thank the amazing hair & makeup gal Amanda Darby Bluestein with The Maplewood Beauty Bar Salon. Her skills behind the chair never fail. Seriously look her up if you are in need of wedding hair and make-up. She will take care of you! 

Thank you so much to The White Owl for allowing us to use your beautiful venue.

Disclaimer...this is a style shoot...the couple pictured did NOT get married :-)

St. Charles Wedding Photographer/St Charles Photographer/Sara & Don White - Old Hickory Golf Club

Sarah and I met at another wedding I did for a friend of hers in St. Charles a few years back, one that I embarrassingly locked my keys in my car, but I guess for her it left a lasting impression! When Sarah first messaged me she told me that her and Don eloped in a very private wedding ceremony in their home, officiated by one of their friend. How romantic is that?!?! I am such a sucker for a romantic love story! I didn't get to meet and work with them until the day of which is usually not how it works, but I must say....they are an amazing match. Watching them together, work together with the kids, what they giggle about, how they love each other, was simply perfection.

Sarah & Don decided to throw a very intimate party to celebrate at Old Hickory Golf Club in St. Peters, which is a gorgeous venue to get married at. Decorated with gorgeous purple floral arrangements from Walter Knoll Florist. Sarah wore a beautiful unique navy dress with the perfect amount of lace. Not only did I get to hang out with Sarah & Don, I also got to meet their 2 adorable sons, ride around on a golf cart, AND get to try out glitter ball cake for the first time ever from Sara's Cake Shop (not same Sara as the bride!). It was truly a party to remember and Sarah has such a sweet family.

Congratulations Sarah & Don! Cheers to many years of love and happiness.
