Haley has had pictures taken with our studio before when she was younger. Her family brought her in and we got to know them very well. So when her and David started planning a wedding they knew exactly where to go…Ravetta’s! We are always happy to know families remember our name for years and years. They come to us for all their photographic needs. We met and discussed the plan for a September wedding at the Zoo. We have done many weddings at the zoo and it is so much fun getting to be behind the scenes creating great photos for the couple. Prior to the ceremony we met Haley at the hotel to relax with some boxed water while the girls got ready. Everyone was very calm and having a great time, it was wonderful to photograph with such a great group of girls. We went to the park to get photos of the girls together but first we had to stop by the house to get a photo with the dog! David totally understood why we had to back up his photo time a bit, four legged family members are very important. The guys were ready and happy to do anything we asked so photos were a breeze with them too. Off to the zoo we went and Haley rode to the ceremony site in style…train style that is! David was all smiles when he saw Haley for the first time. They even got a fly over by some geese right as they were talking about nature being all around the new couple, it was perfect timing. The happy couple greeted a Llama before entering the reception, those were some great photos! This couple was just the sweetest and that really came through during the toast – only wonderful things were said about them. Sometimes the boys get into crazy college stories but not at this wedding, just great positive aspects of both David and Haley. We hope they come back to St. Louis from time to time to visit – we would love to work with them again.
