Last Thursday I had the honor of photographing a small, intimate wedding- yes, on a Thursday. Nicole and Ryan had a simple wedding planned that just took my breath away. In a normal wedding day, I have anywhere from about eight to twelve hours with a wedding couple, but here I had just shy of one and a half hours total. During this short time, I saw more adoration, expectation, and genuine expressions of affection than I often see during a huge event. It was so refreshing!
Located at the Conservatory in historic St. Charles, MO.
A little family love before they got to see each other...
One of the sweetest "first looks" that I have ever photographed. They both said they completely forgot I was there, and I got a great series of tender, beautiful expressions! Here are the first few moments...
I love Ryan's expression here- this is the look he got in his eye when Grandma told him to "think about Nicole."
I love this smile Ryan gave to Nicole as the ceremony began.
