The Oil Crisis Project

We were honored, humbled and moved by attending the opening of the Oil Crisis Project at Mad Art Gallery in St. Louis last night.

Aware of the wonderful photography of Katherine Bish already, it was a certainty that her work would be exceptional and impactful.

It Was.

We urge to to visit one our favorite spaces, Mad Art, and take in the Oil Crisis Project. It's running through October 31st.

An Evening at City Cottage on Choteau

We had SUCH a great evening last night at a great new STL wedding and reception venue, City Cottage on Choteau. Vendors around town were in attendance on a gorgeous almost October evening--- much fun was had by all!

I can't say enough nice things about the space. It's located in the old King Louie's. The building is absolutely gorgeous, spacious, inviting, warm & welcoming. An outdoor patio is a plus in this outdoor living town, throw in a brick oven for pizza (delicious!) and plenty of space indoors for guests and it is easy to see that this venue will be a hot ticket.
Rehearsal dinner, wedding,or wedding reception ----- don't miss a chance to fully consider the space, it is absolutely fabulous. Food by Catering St. Louis, always great as well.
Thanks to the owners and staff @ City Cottage, what a wonderful night. Can I also mention that I'm still dreaming of that wood fired pizza dressed up with figs, apples and goat cheese?

Turning Leaves

As I look outside the studio window into the street scene in Lafayette Square, I see that fall is on it's way! The leaves are turning, the mums are making appearances onto doorways both residential and commercial. Those on the streets on their way to eat, or shop, or even attend a yoga class are clad in the mornings and evenings in something with a little more coverage against the chill.

We're gearing up for FALL portrait sessions, including those for our wonderful engaged couples. More details to come very soon on the Fall Portrait in the Park sessions------ but let me say right now that if you have a session in mind in what is sure to be a gorgeous fall season, give me a call! 314-361-9899--------- I really don't want you to miss out!

Hello? Is that you?

Saturday Sharing

We're with Jayna and Patrick today, capturing their wedding with "Images from the Heart..."

But, while we're away, can I just share the following video? It's from a vintage clip taken at the wedding of friends Jen & John in California.

I'm just sayin'--

and for those of you who laugh at the quality of film from way-back-a-when (8 years ago) I'll share their lyrics.

In Spite of Ourselves
by John Prine and Iris Dement

She don't like her eggs all runny
She thinks crossin' her legs is funny
She looks down her nose at money
She gets it on like the Easter Bunny
She's my baby I'm her honey
I'm never gonna let her go

He ain't got laid in a month of Sundays
I caught him once and he was sniffin' my undies
He ain't too sharp but he gets things done
Drinks his beer like it's oxygen
He's my baby
And I'm his honey
Never gonna let him go

In spite of ourselves
We'll end up a'sittin' on a rainbow
Against all odds
Honey, we're the big door prize
We're gonna spite our noses
Right off of our faces
There won't be nothin' but big old hearts
Dancin' in our eyes.

She thinks all my jokes are corny
Convict movies make her horny
She likes ketchup on her scrambled eggs
Swears like a sailor when shaves her legs
She takes a lickin'
And keeps on tickin'
I'm never gonna let her go.

He's got more balls than a big brass monkey
He's a wacked out werido and a lovebug junkie
Sly as a fox and crazy as a loon
Payday comes and he's howlin' at the moon
He's my baby I don't mean maybe
Never gonna let him go

In spite of ourselves
We'll end up a'sittin' on a rainbow
Against all odds
Honey, we're the big door prize
We're gonna spite our noses
Right off of our faces
There won't be nothin' but big old hearts
Dancin' in our eyes.
There won't be nothin' but big old hearts
Dancin' in our eyes.

I love Jen & John, two of a kind----- that's for sure!

How Do You Feather Your [Newlywed] Nest?

How DO you feather your newlywed nest??? There are so many styles (and methods) of setting up a first home together. Many couples choose the tried-and-true hand me down route, for the sake of efficacy and economy if nothing else! Some couples go "all new" and of course from that fork in the road you can go sleek and efficient or repro vintage, even the always vogue Traditional.

Do you choose every piece yourself from different shops?

Do you create things yourselves?

Are you an afficianado of home style mags or tv shows that inspire and educate?
