Sarah contacted us when she got engaged because not only did we photograph her sister’s wedding we also did Sarah’s senior photos. We have done many weddings of girls we did senior photos. It’s an honor that they remember us when it is time for them to tie the knot. Sarah and Jason knew not to look around at photographers because having seen the other family members completed albums they knew theirs would be perfect as well.
We started off the day with Sarah at the salon as she and the girls finished up hair and make-up. They were running ahead of schedule so when we got to the church they had some time to relax. The boys arrived ready for photos which was perfect timing after it had been raining all morning. Luckily the rain was gone for the day and it was just beautiful outside. Perhaps a bit warmer than they had thought the end of September would be but still great to be outside.
A beautiful ceremony was followed by some large family group photos. We are often told we are a well oiled machine when it comes to these photos. We are able to get everyone in, posed and out in a very efficient way. This really helps when it comes to any time issues we may run into at the church. We altered our park photo plan a bit since the grass was going to be wet anywhere we went. It was great that Sarah and Jason were so easy going when it came to the locations for photos.
They knew after some posed images they wanted to have some fun. What better place is there to have fun than the St. Louis Zoo! We took some photos with the famous seal sculpture, water fall and on the iron bridge out front. We couldn’t end photos without one near the animal sculpture at the entrance to Forest park. It seemed easier for us to walk up there which worked out well when the bus came back to pick up the wedding party.
I will say that even though we had a bunch of walking for photos everyone was on that dance floor. Perhaps it was the great music of the band, Spectrum. But really I think it was because everyone was so excited to celebrate with Sarah and Jason!
