Kim & Mike’s St. Louis Engagement Session

Well Kim & Mike had a wonderful St. Louis engagement session.  Even though we may have cut a little close, with their wedding coming up this weekend, better late than never.  When I first met Kim at the St. Louis Bride Wedding show last January at The Chase Park Plaza, I knew right from the start she was going to be an amazing bride that I would love to work with.

“You get out what you put in”

For their St. Louis engagement session Kim & Mike were All In!!  We were planning a session in more of a park atmosphere, I do enjoy park engagement sessions as much as any other engagement session, but them Mike happen to see some work of mine from a colleague of his, and decided to push for a little more.  We traveled to many of the wonderful structures that St. Louis has to offer, including one of their favorite spots of the out skirts of the new downtown library.  We were able to end up at one of the more popular spots on the Illinois side of the river, and were able to enjoy the sunset over our wonderful city.  After running all around the downtown area, we were able to finish in the fountains at The Saint Louis City Garden.

I am very excited to be apart of their special day.  Their ceremony will be taken place at Central Presbyterian, and the reception at Lumen.  Hopefully we will have a wonderful and exciting send-off.

If their wedding day is anything like their St. Louis engagement session, look forward to seeing some Amazing Imagery!!

Julie & Nick’s Reception Day | Kurtis Hall Photographer LLC | St. Louis Wedding Photographer

So I didn’t get to see Julie and Nick actually getting married, but they did choose me to be their St. Louis wedding photographer!!

Here’s the story:

Julie and Nick got married in Hawaii a month before their actual reception here in St. Louis where I was able to photograph them.  I was able to keep in touch with them via social media, and appeared to be a wonderful ceremony.  If I was available during that date I would have been on the first plane to the island.


They had a reception here and had me as their St. Louis wedding photographer.  We got ready at their home where they had their hair and make up done.  After that we met up at at Busch Stadium, home of the St. Louis Cardinals.  Just a quick step away was Paddy O’s Bar.  It is the first place where Julie and Nick first met, and were able to cool off from 100 degree day.  We also traveled to Forest Park and was able to take advantage of the Muny Box office.  The actual reception was held at St. Louis University High School’s brand new commons area, where the Father of the bride has been a teacher and baseball coach of the Jr. Bills Baseball team.

Side Note:  I have known the family for many years.  The father of the bride was my Baseball coach for two years, and was able to compete and be involved with the family during my AAU Volleyball years (100 Lbs ago).  Since the father of bride has been such an influence on me, and my outlook on life, I was so excited when I was able to return the favor for his daughter.  During his welcome speach or toast, he did not disappoint in giving some of the best lessons in making a marriage successful.

I’m so thankful that I could be apart of their day and they chose me to be their St. Louis wedding photographer.
