Sam + Sean: Wedding at Neo STL

Monday, March 31, 2014
A few weeks ago, Sam + Sean tied the knot at Neo in St. Louis.  It was thankfully a perfect, unseasonably warm Friday night in March for a lively, yet simple wedding for two great people- full of personality and life.  From what I learned before their big day and heard all evening long, during toasts and conversation, these two have it made!

There were tons of great moments to capture, unique bits here and there that made a certain photographer giddy, and here's a handful I'm eager to share...

Though full of bustle and activity, there are always a few quiet moments to peek in on...
 lovely details

 Special moments that make my job so worth it.
 ...and this one had a rooftop at sunset.

Congratulations to you both, and here's to a lifetime of love and dedication in your marriage!

The Novel

Thursday, March 13, 2014
We're rolling out some new changes here at Purple Lemon Photography.  I am working to get everything updated and changed over before we bring our newest additions home from Ghana.

One of the things that I started to notice over the last few years was that my wedding couples and families loved the idea of an album, but weren't really keen on what the options were.  I had one really popular album type, which is super-modern. And it will stay.

The demographic that I love to photograph and that love my company are usually young, unique with a strong tendency to value the visual arts.  Those who love photography, graphic design, artistry in all areas- from design to food to dance to everyday life.  They are overwhelmingly practical, perhaps short on space, and looking for something a little different. 

Which led me to The Novel.
A graphically rich book that tells the whole story of a wedding day (or documentary-styled family session). 

Upwards of 250 pages.
Simple. Sits on a bookshelf with the rest of your library, easily flipped through.

Unlike anything I've ever seen.

Throwback Thursday: Fall Family

Thursday, March 6, 2014
On Facebook, I saw a lot of "Throwback Thursday" pictures today.  Well, Thursday's not over yet... so I'm going to throw you waaaay back to...last fall. When I took photos of my dear friends and their delightful kiddos I couldn't wait to share a few, but I resisted until the Christmas holidays were past, which, for them, was last week. 

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a nice St. Patrick's Day!
