Amanda + Chris wedding {by kate}

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!

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.
