Wedding trends that may stick for 2018

After reading a lot of blogs over the last few months I’m seeing some new trends, and after shooting weddings for over many years I like to stay current. I did notice some ideas that are interesting and fun and I believe we may see them stick as a real trend for years to come. First of all the trend is to go big or stay small and nothing in between. I like it! Some of the best weddings are small intimate and all about family. I’m shooting one of these in a few weeks. The focus is on love and family, everything counts, the bride and groom are accessible and get quality time with everyone.

St Louis Most Affordable Wedding Photographer Packages

Do you live in St Louis? Are you getting ready for your special day? Everything is perfect, exactly the way you pictured it. Except for the photos, you forgot to book a wedding photographer or he simply just didn’t show up. Crazy things happen in this world, and if you don't act fast you’ll miss out on the most important moments. Think about it, the only way you’ll get to re-experience your wedding day is to hope your family and friends take pictures with their phones.

Wedding Packages

I have flexible packages that suit just about everyone. I have small 3 hour packages for those only having a small ceremony and just need it captured along with some family formals and of course portraits of the bride and groom. Then of course I have full day packages that cover everything from getting ready all the way through to the reception. Which is right for you? That's something you will need to decide. But if you're having a ceremony and a reception you should really consider a full day package.

God's Love

It’s been a while since I put a new blog out. I have always avoided controversial content on my site. I simply don’t think it the right platform to express my faith. I now believe not talking about things brings us to a point of controversy and debate. Faith is no debate, and should be discussed openly and anytime you feel moved to share. If you don’t believe in God, that’s OK, maybe it’s not your time. Christians are happy and bathed in joy with the spirit of the lord all around them.

When it comes to your wedding day, you want to make sure that every moment is documented so that you can remember it for forever. Using experienced wedding photographers Saint Louis, MO is just the way for you to have great photographs and mementos from your big day.

Traffic Jams

I have shot several weddings that have the wedding ceremony at one location and the reception at another. This is pretty common, and is normal or par for the course. The bride and groom will often block off some time to go to yet another location(s) like a park to get some stunning photographs. This can be problematic if the location is far away from the wedding or reception location.

The first things newly engaged brides do is go dress shopping, reserve a ceremony and reception location, and hire a wedding photographer. Chance is, this is the first time you have hired a wedding photographer, or any professional photographer.  

I have shot hundreds of weddings and I am experienced in shooting weddings, trust me I have seen it all.

Finding a photographer that knows the area and traffic patterns in St Louis will be valuable.

My Job My Passion

Thank you for stopping by my blog! Now for a bit about me. I am a wedding photographer based in St Louis, Missouri.

Every girl dreams about a picture perfect wedding. My post-production style is very natural with little manipulation.

Be Cool

I want to share some of my thoughts on wedding planning and a few mistakes I have seen. When planning for the wedding, brides tend to put a lot of pressure on themselves to make the event absolutely perfect, and this puts stress on everyone involved. What you need to remember is that even though your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, it’s just ONE day. Take time to enjoy this important event in the days leading up to your wedding as well. Your engagement period is a very special time.
