Ashley & Tyler | Windows on Washington Wedding

St. Louis, MO | Windows on Washington Wedding 

Romeo and Juliet. Jane and Rochester. Scarlett and Rhett. Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy. Ashley and Tyler are officially added to my mental list of timeless couples.  We had an amazing time with their Windows on Washington wedding. Their wedding was one of those weddings that you didn't want to end. It was filled with so much laughter, love, and happiness! Ashley and Tyler's love for each other and absolute delight at getting married seeped into every aspect of their wedding day. These two are absolutely, completely, unquestionably perfect for each other. Every moment of the day was full to the brim of emotion - Windows on Washington wedding photography like no other! From Ashley's dad's toast to her walk down the aisle to the look on Tyler's face when he first saw Ashley...all of it was incredible.

In addition to being completely wonderful people, Ashley and Tyler are one gorgeous couple. Ashley was a stunning bride in a strapless gown with chiffon rosettes. She completed her elegant wedding attire with classic diamond stud earrings, sparkly silver Jimmy Choos, a Kate Spade bracelet, and a custom belt handmade by her mother. Tyler paired his tailored suit (charcoal grey with blue pin stripes!) with a navy tie and polka dot socks, but his bright red vintage Vespa was a show-stopper. And, to really be the total package, Ashley and Tyler threw one heck of a party. Their amazing band, the Charles Glenn Group, kept the dance floor FULL. Everyone, from their college friends to Ashley's 92 year old grandfather, was on the dance floor. It was incredible. Back when Ashley and Tyler were dating, they used to sample different donut shops in St. Louis on Sunday mornings. As donut devotees, they decided to serve donuts from their favorite St. Louis donut shop, John's Donuts, instead of cake.

Y'all...this one was off the charts. As a photographer, there is nothing more rewarding than photographing the love and joy that accompany a wedding. Ashley and Tyler, we wish you many, many years of happiness, love, and laughter. This is just the beginning, and what a beginning it was.

Chaumette Winery Wedding Photography: Erin & Mikko

What better way to spend the first Saturday of November than photographing a gorgeous fall wedding at Chaumette Winery. Love Chaumette Winery Wedding Photography! Erin and Mikko are an amazing, amazing couple, and photographing their Chaumette Winery wedding was truly a pleasure.  The two are incredibly talented creatives themselves; they head up No Frames creative+production, where they create and produce phenomenal cinematography. Their wedding was intimate, elegant, and every inch Erin and Mikko. Erin was an absolutely gorgeous bride; she was a vision in her black and blush colored gown by Vera Wang Couture. Mikko wore a crisply tailored Hugo Boss tuxedo, and a camera was never too far from his hand. His best man Roberto, a fellow filmmaker, captured parts of the day when Mikko was otherwise occupied (like, you know, when he was saying his vows)... Can't wait to see the wedding film they put together. It was a chilly November day, but so worth it. The sky, fall leaves, and rolling hills made the perfect setting... Hard to beat Chaumette Winery wedding photography! Here are a few of our favorites from Erin & Mikko's wedding day:

Ying & Marko - Missouri Botanical Garden, Ritz Carlton Wedding Photography

Ying and Marko - what an incredible wedding! Ying was an absolutely gorgeous bride, and Marko was a positively debonaire groom. Their wedding was effortlessly elegant, and their intimate day was full of their family and friends, from near and far. Ying and Marko both got ready at the Ritz Carlton St. Louis, but they waited to see each other until the moment Ying walked down the aisle. Their ceremony at Assumption Greek Orthodox Church was amazing - the priest was a family friend, and the church itself is incredible, with its towering ceilings and gorgeous art covering the walls. Ying wore a Maggie Sottero gown with a beautiful lace keyhole back. Her incredible gown, hairpieces, jewelry, and the bridesmaid dresses were all from her mother's bridal shop, Helen's Bridal. For their creative photos, we went to the Missoui Botanical Gardens; the classically elegant gardens were the perfect fit for this wedding. I could gush for days about how beautiful it all was (I haven't even mentioned Ying's shoes yet! Love Betsey Johnsn.), but I'd rather say how wonderful Ying and Marko are. They truly make an incredible couple, and they are both so personable, funny, and genuine. It was an absolute honor to photograph their wedding. Here are some of our favorite photos from their wedding.

Carolina & Daniel - St. Louis Anniversary Photography

We photographed Carolina and Daniel's wonderful wedding last September, and this September, we had the awesome opportunity to do an anniversary session with them. St. Louis anniversary photography is a fantastic idea. I believe that images document each chapter in your life better than anything else. When you look back on your first year after marriage, you'll have memories - maybe your first house, your first married Christmas, and all the good stuff in between. Then, your second year comes - maybe you get a dog, move away, or cut off 10 inches of your hair. Each year, your life together is a little bit different, and an anniversary session is the perfect way to show that. It's a great way to get an image for a Christmas card or update the photo on your desk, but more importantly, they are the perfect memento for when you are old and gray, trying to remember what your first year of marriage was like. Carolina and Daniel had their anniversary session on their actual anniversary, before going out to dinner. I love that - double the use of that gorgeous outfit, hair, and make-up! At Carretto Studio, we are all for photographing the big milestones - your wedding, the birth of a baby, your baby's first year, and family photos as your children are growing up. But we also believe it's important to document photos of your life in between those milestones. Document the in between years, too!
