How about a last little dose of fall prettiness before we head into the holiday season? We love, love, LOVE it when we have a chance to do some day after wedding portraits! It’s such a great opportunity to wear your dress again and get some photos in areas outside your wedding venue without the stress & pressure of a wedding day timeline. We met Cassandra & Benjamin at the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park on a gorgeous fall day – these two make our job so easy!
Have a happy and safe holiday season, everyone! xo, A&L
One of the things we love most about our job is that after 10 years of photographing weddings we still see something new and exciting at each one. Sometimes it’s as simple as the look between the bride and groom or an unusual dress or floral arrangement. And sometimes we get MAGICIANS! JUGGLERS! and AERIALISTS!
Cassandra and Benjamin’s wedding at the United Palace Theater was truly one for the record books. Both are professional magicians and their wedding was both an intimate and family focused affair (Cassy’s parents did her hair & makeup and designed all the bridal accessories, chuppah and flowers!) as well as a total showstopper showcasing their mutual love of the song & dance of vaudville and the glamor of Old Hollywood.

We wrapped up our St. Louis wedding season with the stunning Stephanie and Nik at The Chase Park Plaza Hotel. The day was pure elegance, and full of all the wonderfully sweet emotion that you hope for from every wedding (both being daddy’s girls, we especially loved capturing some great moments between Steph and her dad). So very happy for these two and their families!
We’ve had such glorious autumn weather here in St. Louis, and it served as the perfect setting for Beth and Bill’s wedding at City Cottage. It was our first time at City Cottage (a perfect blend of urban and rustic romance), and Beth and Bill are just awesome. The end result was a really special day (don’t get us started on their ceremony – we both had tears in our eyes!). There was so much love in that place! And there was also pie. What more could you want?
