Yes, I have been nudged back into wedding photography. I photographed Jessie and Ian’s wedding on a 107 degree day last Saturday. Jessie and Ian were terrific and the heat really was not that bad. My son Timothy was the second shooter on this amazing wedding day and was so much fun to be with. Jessie and Ian’s St. Louis wedding photography was a fun filled day.
I started at the Chase with Jessie getting ready and Timothy went to the Pedroli household to capture Ian getting ready. We then went to the Basilica for a beautiful ceremony and then to Villa Duschene (Jessie’s high school) for fun photos. Jessie and Ian wanted some photos at the Arch – so we quickly took some photos in the 107 degree heat. And then back to the Chase for a beautiful and fun reception.
Redbird was the surprise guest of the evening. He stayed and entertained the guests. I have never seen so many cameras at one event.
The evening ended beautifully with a few last shots.
Flowers – Bloomin Buckets
Cake – Sweet Peas
I am back in the saddle photographing weddings. I had retired from wedding photography but circumstances in our business now have me me back into St. Louis Wedding Photography. I was a bit apprehensive about photographing Melissa and Mike’s wedding. But they are so nice I felt at ease immediately. It actually felt great to be back in the wedding photography world.
We started out at their church Canaan Baptist Church for a beautiful ceremony and then for fun photos down at the St. Louis arch. And while we were downtown we swung by Busch Stadium. We ended the day at The Falls in Columbia, Illinois.
Here is a sneak peek of a few of my favorite images.
Last Saturday, March 17th, my son Timothy and Becky Winka got married. We had been looking forward to this special day for a very long time. Becky is a fantastic person and fits perfectly into our family.
We started off the festivities with the Rehearsal Dinner at Maggie’s Lunch Box. Maggies is located in the heart of Fenton’s industrial and business center. This adorable cafe/bakery outdid themselves on the food. The food was absolutely delicious. We played an adorable slide show of Timothy and Becky growing up that always brings tears to a mom’s eyes.
Saturday the skies opened up and let loose with a ferocious rain storm. I have not seen rain like that in a long time. I knew right away that our wedding photographer, Susan Jackson, would not be able to take the wedding party anywhere for outdoor photos. So off to Andre’s West everyone headed for indoor photos. We were very pleased with Susan. Not only is she a fantastic photographer but she is also a good friend. She was so kind and nice to everyone and a trooper for putting up with all the Nordmanns.
Andre’s West was very accommodating. The reception hall was beautiful. And Becky’s table decorations added a nice personal touch. The hostess of the evening was very gratuitous and helpful. And you can always count on Andre’s for a good meal. My husband John was Timothy’s best man and outdid himself with a beautiful toast to the bride and groom.
Millenium Productions was the DJ service for the evening. The music was terrific and was enjoyed by everyone. The dance floor was always filled with guests partying the night away. I will say that my grandson Cameron was the best dancer of the evening.
Nordmann Productions was the videographer. That is Timothy’s videography company specializing in weddings, corporate and sporting events. Phil Betts was the videographer, filling in for Timothy who was busy getting married. Phil was so kind to be around and was very unobtrusive. We appreciated that he did not use any blaring lights. We haven’t seen the video yet but I know it will be amazing.
If you are interested in viewing all of the images of the evening go Nordmann Photography’s web site. Go to Client Log In and the Event is Nordmann and the password is BT. I am warning you there are a lot of photos to view. Here are a few of my favorites.Read More »
