Today instead of blogging about love in the snow, I am definitely ready to move on the love in  spring!  And Catherine & Brent’s engagement session in Dallas a couple of weeks ago is the perfect way to kick off the spring feeling!  I was in desperate need of seeing greenery.  Not every thing was green in dallas but there was plenty of trees that stay green, ground greenery, and even green lilly pads on the water :)  And on top of already being in my photo happy place, Catherine and Brent laugh and love so easily that it is really inspiring.

I hope these photos make you feel happy as well :)  Also, in certain photos, Catherine has an uncanny resemblance to Olivia Wilde~but prettier :)

Then we ended at the cutest little area for a little Tex-Mex with a MILLION twinkly lights!  I LOVE TWINKLY LIGHTS!  There would be more photos there but there were also a million cars in the parking lot, lol.catherine-200

On July 27th, I woke up somewhere close to 5am to get ready to drive to St. Louis to photograph Liz & Mike’s wedding with Jessica who was my second photographer for the big day.  We had coffee in hand and ready for a little road trip :)  July weddings are sometimes on the hottest days of the year, but not this July.  The temperature cooled down a bit and had a crispness about it to make you excited for the fall.  It truly was an invigorating day to have a wedding :)  All of the girls were all excited and bubbly.  The guys were equally fired up and ready for a great day!  While I was photographing the girls getting ready, Jessica was photographing the guys getting ready at the Westin.  Mike didn’t see Elizabeth until she was walking down the aisle at the beautiful St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, it was a lovely moment to witness.  The ceremony was beautiful and kicked off an afternoon and evening of joy and celebration!  The reception was amazing and soooooo much fun!  The details and decor were to die for!!!!  I will start with Liz’s fabulous dress and shoes!


I loved the chalkboard paint on the glasses!  Keep your eye out for more chalkboard fun throughout the day!

Wow, just wow.  Liz was just stunning.liz-110 liz-155

I think my favorite part about the Westin was that it was right next to the Busch Stadium!  How cool is that for a Cardinals fan!!!liz-184 liz-447

Liz’s nieces and nephews were super cute :)  liz-188

And before Mike saw his bride on their wedding day, Liz’s dad came to see his baby girl ready to walk down the aisle :)liz-235 liz-333 liz-351


Beautiful church, beautiful light and beautiful moment :)liz-453 liz-500 liz-507

After the ceremony everyone got on a limo bus and went to Forest Park for some photo fun!!!!liz-541

I LOVE the next two images and it is a great example of how awesome it is to have a 2nd photographer on your wedding day!  While I was in the position for the first shot, Jessica’s angle was awesome with the water as the background!!!liz-629

The reception was at Moulin and was incredible!liz-841

The bride and groom entrance was pretty cool.  Mike slid right in to his entrance.  I was surprised by the fun entrance and I think Mike may have been surprised by a splinter or two 😉  Totally worth it for it’s awesomeness though 😉liz-865 liz-945 liz-958 liz-965

Now THIS is what a dance floor is suppose to look like :)  Super fun!liz-1030 liz-1116
