Gillette Wedding - The White Owl Wright City MO - Jheart Photography

It was such a joy to be invited back to The White Owl for Jessie and Morgan’s beautiful wedding day.

Out of all of the weddings I have been apart of, Morgan is the first bride to honor me with dressing the bridesmaids in the most adorable blush pant suits. They were perfect. I hope these become a giant wedding trend!

It’s not just the girls that rock their attire for the day. Don’t forget to look at the detail Jessie made sure was in his suit…He looked so sharp.

Eichholz Wedding/The White Owl/St. Charles Wedding Photographer

Kim & Randy's perfect day was at the rustic The White Owl in Wright City MO. I was absolutely tickled to shoot here because a year ago, I got married here too! It was so much fun to go back there and be the photographer! 

Kim & Randy were surrounded by so many wonderful family and friends that really know how to celebrate. The details Kim added to the venue really highlighted their relationship and the rustic charm of The White Owl. Kim was all smiles before the ceremony & you can tell by the picture, she was glowing as she walked down the aisle. Kim's classic lace dress from The Wedding Gallery St. Charles paired perfect with the gorgeous old church pews placed in the outdoor chapel. The navy and purple bouquets were silk! I couldn't believe it myself when they were delivered and they were made by the amazingly talented Troy Flower Shop

Getting to return to where I had my wedding was nostalgic, and even more so because I got to see two other amazing people begin their life journey there. I can't wait to go back!

Kim & Randy, thank you so much for asking me to capture your special day. I can't wait to see where the future takes you together.

This season is causing me to majorly fall in love with intimate backyard weddings. Whitney & Ben's property was the perfect spot for them to say "I do!" I had so much fun with them and their entire wedding party. 

Have you ever seen a more stunning bride? Whitney in her gorgeous dress that she personalized to her style and the attention to details she put into the whole day really made this wedding beautifully unique. 

Thank you so much Ben & Whitney for asking me to capture these for you. It was such a blessing to be apart of your forever. 

America The Beautiful

The past few years I have not went to see fireworks because I am not a huge fan of the noise and my youngest son really doesn't like them, but this year I went to our local town Wright City's Firework display. It reminded me of how much I love the fact that to celebrate our Freedom and the people who fought for it, we blow things up! Seems like such irony in that and I love it. I love the colors, the applause, the sparkle, and the looks on little kids faces as they explode. For some reason it really makes my heart burst with pride to be apart of this country. So in true photographer fashion...i snapped a few pictures of the fireworks before the smoke took over. Of course I had to do smoke bomb and sparkler pictures because as a photographer I would feel incomplete had I not.

Happy Fourth of July!!!

St. Charles Family Photographer/ Family Photographer Jheart Photography/ Quail Ridge Park Jasmine, Andrew, & Mr. Nash

I met Jasmine when she won a St. Charles based contest I did years ago for a maternity give back session. That session is still one of my favorite maternity sessions I have done to date. Naturally I was beyond excited when she asked me to capture their first family photos together! We went back to where the maternity pictures where at Quail Ridge Park in St. Charles because it has the most amazing sunset backdrop. Nash just turned 2 and he definitely reminded me what it is like to have a toddler around again because he is ON THE MOVE! Loved getting to see his bright outgoing personality and the love his Mama & Dad have for him <3

Kim & Randy started their love story by becoming neighbors! They currently live right next door to each other and I believe the rest is history. They are planning their wedding for June 2018 and are using The White Owl in Wright City. I was so excited when they told me this because that is where I got married in May 2017 and it was the perfect venue. So when they said they wanted to do their engagement pictures here WITH their pups I was double excited!

Kim & Randy are both super sweet & pair so well together. Kim likes to laugh and Randy has a great smile once you crack him. We had fun dancing & chasing the dogs for that epic family picture HAHAHA. Tiger and Bella definitely rule the roost at this house, but with good reason because look how stinkin adorable they are!

I am so excited to spend your special day with you next year!
