Yesterday we headed over to Loose Mansion for Kate and Rob’s wedding. Kate and Rob are pretty untraditional, so as you can expect, they had a pretty untraditional wedding. Kate made her Victorian wedding gown (click here for pictures from her bridal session) and pretty much all of the details: her bouquet, the boutonnieres, the centerpieces, even the pens used to sign the photo mat. Before the ceremony, we headed down to Union Station for some fun portraits with Kate and Rob. The whole day was very relaxed and easygoing, which always makes our job easy and more fun Here are a few favorites, with Josh’s commentary…
Normally, I don’t post pictures like this, but I like to think of this blog as family friendly, and the other pics of the “Realies” don’t quite fit into that category:) Check the proofing in a couple of weeks for the more “fun” ones.

Yesterday we spent the day with Lexi and Nathan. The weather was amazing for late November and Mizzou won, so that made for a great day. Practically everyone in the bridal party and families (as well as Lexi and Nathan) are MU alumni, so we had a great morning/late afternoon of getting ready/watching the game/listening to the game :). Lexi and Nathan decided to see each other before the ceremony so we could get most of the photos done while it was still light outside. After the ceremony, we headed to the Nelson for some nighttime fun, silhouettes and painting with light. Here are a few favorites from the day…
As a wedding photographer, I get lots of perks from going to so many weddings. One of my favorite perks is trying out all the different kinds of wedding cake! I have to say that I’ve eaten a lot of wedding cake, and Jenny and I both agree that Sam from Cakes by Combs makes the very best wedding cake in town. Max and Ava’s birthday party is coming up this Saturday, so we decided it would be fun to have Sam make some birthday cakes for the kids. I then took it a step further and thought it would be neat to take some pictures of her doing what she does best, making some cake. So, here are my favorite shots from today’s shoot with Sam.

Yesterday we spent the day with Tina and Bryan, who got married in Leavenworth. Now, just to clarify, we did take a photo in front of the Leavenworth prison, but neither Tina or Bryan served time there. Apparently when you get married in Leavenworth, people start to wonder if you have special ties there :). Anyway, we had a great day with Tina and Bryan and did some things we’ve never done on a wedding day before…we visited the Carousel Museum, St. Mary’s Campus, McDonalds, and the prison. All in all a great day, and we really lucked out with some beautiful weather! Here’s a sneak peek for Tina and Bryan before they head out on their honeymoon tomorrow…
