Stephanie + Nick Married | St. Charles County Wedding Photographer | Radiant Images Photography LLC

It was definitely a HOT one…but the heat didn’t seem to melt anyone’s spirits. This couple is special in many ways. First their commitment to purity was one you don’t see every day and it was quite refreshing. The one repeating theme from Stephanie as we prepared to photograph her special day was “make sure you get the ‘first kiss’.” Well, of course that is a very special moment in any wedding. However, for Stephanie and Nick it was their very FIRST kiss…EVER! The moment they had waited for had finally arrived and they didn’t want their wedding photographer to miss it…and we didn’t!



Congratulations Stephanie and Nick. May God richly bless your life together.

Ashley + Logan Engaged | St. Charles County Engagement Photographer | Radiant Images Photography

What an honor it is to be a photographer and get to photograph two people in love. Even more so, your daughter and her fiance’. Today was such a day. My daughter just got engaged a few weeks ago and already we are neck-deep in wedding planning. The date is fast approaching because we only had 14 weeks to plan! The newly married couple are moving out of state within days of the wedding for Logan to begin his PhD work. It certainly is an exciting, emotion-filled time. I wanted to share a few of the images we captured today. This is really just the beginning of the engagement sessions for them. We will do another next weekend at the location where he ‘popped the question’ and then they will also be doing a session with their wedding photographer. No, I’m not shooting this wedding…I’m Mother of the Bride! :)







Stephanie + Nick, Engaged! Saint Charles County Engagement Photographer

This past weekend I made the trip from St. Louis to Louisville KY for an engagement session with a very special couple. Stephanie is the daughter of our pastor and we’ve known them for almost 13 years now. I’ve watched her grow into the godly young woman she is today. They are both students at Boyce College in Louisville. He is a Biblical and Theological Studies major and she is a Church Ministries major with emphasis in Children’s Ministry. We spent the bigger part of the day together and had a wonderful time. We ended the day just across the Ohio River with a shot of the Louisville skyline at night…a fun shot to capture. I simply adored capturing their love for each other and their love for the Lord, it was both refreshing and inspirational. Congratulations Stephanie and Nick, I can’t wait to photograph your wedding in July!
