I love shooting in new (to me) venues and especially outdoors… I knew Amanda and Chris and I were going to jive as soon as they told me they love to hike and romp with their dogs and wanted to shoot their e-session in the woods and on a bluff :D LaLumondiere is a gorgeous natural setting with lovely river views and a stunning glass greenhouse that overhangs the river!
love all these ruffles – So fun!
When give the space, I love taking the small details outside… there was *just* enough fall left to get a little color in!
just some gals goofin’
time to get this beautiful bride suited up!
and Dad thinks so too!
And now we meet Chris!
The big reveal! They could not have been happier to see each other!
The wind may or may not have blown the veil out a few frames after this photo LOL
These wooden doors with the bright burgundy dresses was so pretty!
Check this setup out! SO pretty!!
Little buddy :D I LOVE this photo of her on the right so much I processed it in both color and black & white LOL
4 legged ring bearers!
Mr & Mrs Arrow
Oh how the tides can turn in an instant from above to this LOL
groomsmen goofin’ too
I do not get to shoot many full outdoor receptions.. I LOVE them but most people aren’t willing to make the gamble on weather in StL…. this night was perfect.
Much fun was had by all!
End of the night sparklers! Big thanks to the folks at Orlando’s for moving the catering vans for me to get these shots!
