It is a great honor to be trusted by anyone to shoot the most important day of their life. But it is an even greater honor when that person is a friend, former classmate, and a photographer himself. Donald was a classmate of mine at the University of Missouri, we often found ourselves photographing the same sports and events on and off campus. We also both started shooting weddings at the same time in College.
He asked me to travel to St. Louis to document his marriage to his beautiful bride Maureen. The wedding ceremony was held at the incredible Little Flower Church in Richmond Heights, MO. This church blew my mind, it is an amazing space. I thought that maybe Donald had discovered this gem while shooting a clients wedding, but it turned out he has worshiped here since he was a kid. We shot portraits at Forest Park and the St. Louis Art Museum, as well as at the campus of Washington University, and finally the reception was held at Moulin Events.
Below are a few of my favorite images, I tried some different post processing techniques on this post and I am pretty happy with how they came out. I almost never convert to Black and White, but I LOVE the results of this technique. Also check out that color on the portraits!
Thanks Maureen and Donald for the great images!
