Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church Wedding
When I was asked to help shoot this fall wedding at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Washington MO, I knew it was going to be amazing! It was one-hour drive west of St. Louis, but it was totally worth it. The day was nothing short of sweet, fun, and emotional!
I LOVE second shooting for other wedding photographers in the area when I get a chance. This is a time when I get to be creative without all the stress, trying unique perspectives and capturing candid moments that make up the story of the day but would have gone unnoticed if I were the main photographer. (Wanna learn more about second-shooting? Check out this blog post that I wrote: How to Become a Kickass Second Shooter.) So, naturally, I was thrilled to get to shoot with the talented Lanye at L. Michelle Images.
My day started with the guys. Groom and the best man–so adorable these two!

And, of course, guys and their booze:
Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church Wedding Ceremony
The wedding was at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church. Everybody was getting ready for the ceremony to start. I noticed these interesting shadows cast by the stained glass windows and had to take a shot.
I like taking pictures of kids at weddings. They are such a fun addition to any wedding. (Plus, everyone will gush about how absolutely cute they are when you post these pictures on Facebook.)
The ceremony was about to start. I love how the usher was talking to the ring bearer, probably asking him, “You ready, buddy?” or something like that. LOL.
What made the ceremony extra special was, the priest was the groom’s brother!
Lions Lake and Driftwood Distillery Wedding Photos
And then we drove around for pictures of the bridal party around town. We stopped at Lions Lake and Driftwood Distillery.
When the wedding party are starting to act all kinds of goofy, you know it’s going to be a GREAT day!
