St Louis Wedding Photographers | Angel Oak Johns Island SC

Angel Oak

Johns Island, South Carolina

Enroute to an engagement session in Hilton Head SC, we took a strongly suggested detour to see the Angel Oak. An unpaved road in South Carolina led to an absolutely phenomenal sight.

Spanish moss adorned its interwoven boughs lending a sense of antiquity and dignity to this surreal life form. We were in awe of the sheer size and complexity. Each sweeping branch seemed to lead to a peaceful secluded spot all under the solemn protection of the over 17,000 square feet of shade furnished by this solitary giant. Sitting beneath this oak was a wonderful place to contemplate our relative smallness on this Earth.

St Louis Wedding Photographers | The Bride & Her Flower Girl

St Louis Wedding Photography | For The Moment Photography

Life is defined by moments flying by in the blink of an eye. As I am editing Rachel & Kelly’s wedding photographs this series of photos struck me as being a beautiful example of just that. Rachel took time on her wedding day to carefully place a flower crown on her flower girl. The little lady’s excitement as she ran to see herself in the mirror was adorable. Only a handful of seconds, but well worth preserving.

The wedding was beautiful, the dinner was delicious, the reception dancing was a blast and also did I mention the food was really good?

Kelly and Rachel are a couple that exude kindness. On the day of their wedding, they were still actively concerned with the needs of their friends and family. Of course, there were still all the little moments of life that tried to complicate things, but Kelly and Rachel approached it all with a warm confidence, certain that at the end of the day they would be married to their best friend.

One of Rachel’s best friends, Jamie, tragically passed away. In memory of her Rachel made bracelets for herself and all of her bridesmaids to wear the day of the wedding. Just a sweet little locket holding a favorite memory of a great friend.rk_villa_marie_winery_st_louis_wedding_photography-1005

St Louis Wedding Photography | Richard + Brittney’s Engagement

Richard and Brittney

Creve Coeur Lake Engagement

St Louis Wedding Photography | For The Moment Photography

Richard had planned well in advance. The Ring, approved by trusted confidants, the Location, drawn from warm sunsets sprawled across the horizon at “their” spot, and the Moment, carefully chosen to effect surprise and delight in the heart of his future wife.

The look on Brittney’s face when Richard pointed to us and told her he had hired us to photograph their engagement was priceless. The look was partly relief that two strangers had not spontaneously taken it upon themselves to photograph the exuberant couple, and part sheer wonderment that her man had thoroughly orchestrated this moment for her.

Richard and Brittney, it was amazing to observe this momentous afternoon. Best wishes,

xoxo Dustin & Amanda Turner

A late autumn wedding at a winery.

While Spring is my favorite season, there is something poignant and beautiful about Autumn leaves losing their vibrant greens in preparation for winter. The texture of denuded tree branches or in this case the stark simplicity of wizened grape vines adds something romantic to wedding photographs.

I love going to wineries all year long with my friends and family, those warm experiences mean that I am always full of anticipation to photograph an upcoming wedding being held at a winery.

St Louis Wedding Photography | Dustin + Amanda Turner

Ian and Courtney, what to say? Well a long time ago, in a land that coincidentally resembles Missouri, these two lovebirds grew up as youthful friends without an inkling of what their future could be together. They shared good times, they poked fun at each other, and even endured the harrowing experience of High School in close proximity.  But alas, when the foul beast of awkward adolescence and self-doubt reared its fearsome maw, their friendship almost quailed…

Ian slew that beast with one well placed message.

The ensuing romance is well documented and these pictures are a fitting testimony.

These two are wonderful to be around, they are fun and kind and refuse to take themselves too seriously. These Photos can’t convey how many laughs we had, or how comfortable it was to be with this couple who are so obviously making each other excessively happy.

xoxo, Dustin + Amanda

Anheuser Busch Brewery and Carondalet Park provided amazing backdrops for the Photography of this St Louis Wedding.

Neo On Locust is a favorite venue of mine. The exposed brick and industrial details creates an urban yet classic feel. The windows surrounding the room provide a beautiful and expansive view of the city. Especially with the setting sun an incredible romantic glow suffused the room.

Autumn Family Pictures | Belleville IL Photographer

The Maher’s have been close friends of ours for several years, to the point where we consider them family. I can remember when Holden was a newborn, it seems CRAZY that he is 7 years old now!!! The morning of this session was more than brisk, but we found a very pretty little piece of autumn to photograph with our friends. Then we all went to breakfast, pretty fun morning overall!

St Louis Wedding Photography | Kenny + Taryn

Kenny + Taryn

Downtown St Louis | Engagement Session

St Louis Wedding Photography | Dustin + Amanda Turner

Seven years ago, a first date ended without sparks. Five years later, a piano bar in downtown St. Louis turns a seemingly casual day into a life changing date. Kenny and Taryn found themselves conversing about why they enjoy each other’s company. Taryn realized that Kenny has always known how to make her laugh. And Kenny, who is crazy in love with Taryn, says she is the total package: brains, beauty and braun.

After two years of being hopelessly in love, Kenny asked Taryn to marry  him under The Arch. And then immediately confessed all the little lies it took to plan the whole evening. So begins the documenting of where it all started for this couple….. Downtown St. Louis.

I was a little nervous for this engagement session because it had been pouring rain all morning. Thankfully the sun broke through the clouds just a few hours before we started the session providing gorgeous lighting! 🙂 Taryn and Kenny were fabulous to work with, they even let us throw wet leaves at them to get the “epic” shot we wanted! It was a joy documenting their love and I can’t wait for their wedding next fall in Nashville, IL.
