Jane + Billy | McCormick Ranch Wedding | St. Louis + Destination Wedding Photographer

Wow. Oh my goodness. All I can think to say is just how blessed I feel after this incredible, beautiful, and busy weekend. I'm so grateful I was able to fly back to Arizona to photograph Jane and Billy's stunning wedding and to squeeze in a few family sessions in between. Jane and Billy's wedding day was absolutely beautiful from the start. The rain that had poured down on the valley just a few days before cleared just in time and left perfect, beautiful greenery everywhere. Every last detail was planned to perfection. So many laughs, hugs, and kisses were shared while celebrating these two! They are so loved and it's not hard to see why! I'm so grateful to have come to known Jane and Billy through this whole wedding experience! I just adore them both. As I gave them one last hug at the end of the night, Jane whispered, "Move back to Arizona so we can be best friends", followed by both her and Billy planting big kisses on my cheeks while my second photographer photographed it all. These two--there's no wonder so many people flew in to be with them on this very special day. They just make everyone they meet feel like VIP's in their lives.

Thank you Jane and Billy! I hope you absolutely love your images and enjoy your honeymoon!! Also, huge thank you to all these amazing vendors who worked so hard to give it their all and make this day so wonderful!

I absolutely loved the ring holder Jane chose! Such a beautiful added detail!
A few months ago I came across the idea of hand painted canvas as backdrops for wedding detail shots. I knew I had to try my hand at it and wanted to make one for Jane. So this very backdrop was custom made specifically for Jane's wedding and details! I loved putting in that extra effort to make these details even that much more special for her. I absolutely love how it turned out!

Jane's dress was absolutely stunning! 

Little secret about this photo. She was actually peeking down on Billy right before the first look!

Jane's bouqet was absolutely stunning. The florist, Florals by Kris, said she purposely left out greenery so that those gorgeous air plants could pop! 

The sweetest, most helpful bridesmaids ever!

One of my favorite, favorite, favorite parts about shooting weddings at McCormick Ranch! The joy rides at sunset in their golf carts! It's so fun to cruise away with the bride and groom for those sunset portraits!
They pulled some strings and got Purdue Pete to represent at their wedding!!

And as I referenced earlier, THIS moment! Probably one of my favorite wedding moments EVER! Pretty sure I left blushing! Ah! Jane and Billy, I love you guys! Congratulations you two beautiful people!!
