This January, we had the opportunity to collaborate with Butler’s Pantry and pulled together a fabulous photo shoot at Oak Knoll Park in St. Louis.
Inspired by the winter holidays, the room was full of warm reds and mixed-metal details. It was a sight to see! And taste! Lucky for us, that Hot Chocolate Bar wasn’t just for show! This was our first opportunity to work with BBJ Linen’s new MODA line, and we loved it! What a great way to showcase the beautiful St. Louis Community Foundation #2 at Oak Knoll Park. Check out the gorgeous results!
We had so much fun helping this couple make their dream wedding come true. We loved working with all of the amazing vendors to pull off this ivory, champagne, and gold evening. Cheers to you, Natalie+Derek!

We’re reminiscing on this Styled Shoot for this weeks Wedding Wednesday. We had the opportunity to work with a talented group of people to create this Soft French Elegance Inspired Styled Shoot. Thank you to everyone who helped make this vision come to life!
“No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.

“A beautiful farmhouse, incredible details, a glamorous vintage Hillman, and a stunning couple? Sign me up! We are so so happy with how this styled shoot turned out! Huge thanks to all the vendors listed below that made this happen and a special thanks to Michelle from Absolutely In Events for putting this whole shoot together. We are so lucky to have worked with such a phenomenal team! Michelle’s vision of blush, silver, and soft lace was perfectly executed. The Longview Farmhouse was a perfect venue; it’s gardens and elegant, but homey feel set off this shoot beautifully. Sarah, our bride, was stunning in her Judd Waddell gown from Fleur De Lis Bridal Boutique, and our bridesmaids wore dresses from Bella Brdiesmaid. Their hair/makeup by Emily Miller could not have been more dreamy! The flowers by Bloomin’ Buckets were stunning: soft and ethereal with layers and layers of texture. The cakes by Jilly’s Cupcake Bar were incredible, and the food by Villa Farotto looked so delicious. Invitations and paper goods by M. Haley Design, decor from Grand Rental Station, and linens from Connie Duglin Linens lent their stunning pieces to this shoot.
The shoot was shot mostly on Fuji 400 film. We can’t get enough of how film captures color in such a soft and beautiful way. It was such a pleasure to photograph this shoot – it’s simply amazing to see the caliber of work that these vendors produce!”
