A late night share because I’m up late editing trying to get a bunch of things wrapped up before we head to the beach this weekend! I popped on here quick to scroll the gram and take a little break. And as I was typing this my autocorrect changed because to befuddle.. what? Is that my sign to go to bed?! 🤣 Probably.
I am still in a dream like state from this past weekends wedding........I wish I could share ever image and all the amazing details (OMG the florals were breathtaking)!! Not only was it special because I grew up with the bride but every detail was completely who the couple are and the day was PERFECT!! I have never shot at a more STUNNING venue and I am already dying to go back. This couple who loves the outdoors surrounded themselves with nature, amazing food and the BEST crowd......I mean the speeches were so on point and it wrapped up with a rap, one of the groomsmen busted out a fur coat and nailed a solo rap to the bride & groom!! But I just want to take a min to chat about the band.....they were flipping amazing and I even stayed till the wee hours of the morning dancing away. Thank you so incredibly much S & S for having me, what an amazing day with even better people 🙌🏻 .

These are my babies exploring our home town. They are beautiful and creative souls - obsessively making artworks every day. Tilly is an artist who loves drawing, sculpting, singing and dancing. Eli loves writing songs, dancing, and building digital artworks. I am so excited to see what they do in their futures!
I want to take life slowly and enjoy the rush of water swirling over my skin. But work calls my name every day with an ever growing to do list. I want to grow but I also want to be. I bet in all the being you find you’re actually growing. That really in all the doing your actually dying. So here is to being more. Being here more for my family, Being here more for my clients , Being here more for my friends. . After all the changes around here I’ve noticed less people engaging so you may find I mix it up a bit and maybe post less. I want to offer to you all something. Not just more images to double tap. So excuse silences and know I am only posting when we want to share REAL things with you all. Bious Bious 😘 Emmy
It has felt like such a stormy summer so far here in St. Louis. I know that rain on a wedding day is every couple’s textbook “worst nightmare” but remember that a little bit of rain (or even a crazy storm) won’t ruin your wedding day. The most important thing is that you end up married ;) And I think that rain can actually add such a romantic element to the day. So in honor of all the stormy weather lately, here’s a round-up of some gloomy weather images from the past couple of years 🖤🌧
A few black & white favorites from Zach & Alaina's engagement session earlier this Summer. The way these two make each other laugh and smile and just being witness to the love they share is something special! I'm so ready to celebrate their marriage in December. Hang on you crazy kids...it'll be here before you know it!
Laughing with you plucks anxiety out of my heart, you are a gift to my lungs. . . . So I did the scariest thing: switching roles for once and getting in front of @emmdurenberger ‘s lens. The experience taught me two things: 1. doing things that scary you are a lot easier when you have someone to hold your hand. 2. Take these photos while you have the chance. It’s so important to preserve these moments because I know want to hold on to these for as long as I can- maybe even a life time.
The back of yo head is ridik-alous + a third picture for good measure. He almost went the whole day without me writing about him. But alas, it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t say Happy Birthday in more than just a card or by terribly singing him his least favourite song (HBD) this morning. Wishing him the happiest of birthdays and the best of days, cause this guy is simply the best. Thanks for choosing Jinx and I. I know she’s a tough sell. 🤣

'Cause you love who you love. And you can't help how you're made. You don't have no say. Your heart decides. It's that simple I'm afraid. Yes you love who you love. Common sense may say it's wrong. -You Love Who You Love- John Mayer To all those whose lives changed on June 26 in 2015, we celebrate with you. For love is love.
