Patti Wedding Photography

Patti Wedding Photography in St Louis Name | Kristen + Gary Date | 8.4.18 Ceremony | Oakland House, Shrewsbury, MO Reception | The Sunset Room, Shrewsbury City Center Wedding Photography | Sal Cincotta & Alissa Zimmerman Probably one of the most unique weddings of the year. Very small and intimate, but most importantly, LOTS OF TIME FOR PICTURES. I knew we would hit it off when they came in for a pre-wedding consultation and the conversation quickly went to the type of images they were looking for and we ended up with "I don't know, but we want unique." YES! This is what I do. Unique. Because we had so much time in our timeline it allowed us to drive all over and create some very unique images. We ended up bringing Kristen and Gary with us in our car and drove all over town. Everything from Forest Park to…

They have done an incredible job at maintaining the architecture and the beauty of this historic church. For Alex and Alyssa, the journey was just beginning on this day. The summer storms in  St Louis, make your wedding day a little unpredictable. The weather report called for rain during the creative part of the day and we had our fingers crossed it would pass. And sure enough, it did. It let up just as we arrived at Lafayette Park and started up again, just…

Washington DC Wedding Photography

Washington DC Wedding Photography Name | Yaser + HomaDate | 6.16.18Ceremony & Reception | The Crystal Room @ InterContinental The Willard Washington D.C.Wedding Photography | Sal Cincotta & Alissa ZimmermanHair | Nadia HijaziMakeup | Marcus CuenoFlorist | Platinum Wedding and Decor Yeser and Homa are probably two of my favorite people! Their wedding was in Washington DC and we got to photograph them all over the monuments. It was a blast for sure. This was one of the first weddings we got to photograph where the bride and groom helped each other get ready. If you are a bride and considering this, I am telling you, this is a much more intimate and memorable way to get ready. It was just the immediate family in the ready room and it made for a much more relaxed and memorable experience for the family. After Yaser and Homa finished getting ready, we…

Far Oaks Golf Club Wedding Photography

Far Oaks Golf Club Wedding Photography Name | Ryan + DarinaDate | 5.12.18Ceremony | Far Oaks Golf ClubReception | Far Oaks Golf Club Wedding Photography | Sal Cincotta & Alissa Zimmerman This spring we got to work with Ryan and Darina on their very small and intimate wedding at the Far Oaks Golf Club in Illinois. May weddings in the St Louis area can go one of two ways, brutally hot and humid or just raining miserably. Well, we got one gorgeous day for a wedding! It was a beautiful day and it was an incredible celebration. We met the bridal downtown St Louis for some urban shots. Ryan and Darina had their first look here before heading off to Far Oaks Golf Club for the ceremony and reception. We snuck out at the end of the night for a final shot, something I love doing when I can. What a gorgeous sunset!     Check out…

Sunset Hills Country Club Wedding Photography Name | Abby + Nick Date | 6.23.18 Ceremony | Salem United Church of Christ Reception | Sunset Hills Country Club, Edwardsville, IL Wedding Photographer | Sal Cincotta and Alissa Zimmerman Check out this Sunset Hills Country Club Wedding Photography event by Salvatore Cincotta Photography. What a gorgeous day it was for Nick and Abby! We got to shoot on a golf course - what could be better than that? For Nick, he was in his element for sure. It was a hot and muggy St Louis Saturday, but that didn't stop us from having fun with this crew. They were all close friends and we made the best of it. Now, I would be lying if I didn't say some of the cart driving was out of control. Mostly by the girls... let's just say they were having a little too much fun.…

The Chicago Wedding Photography we were able to capture was incredible. The weather was gorgeous and the locations to die for. The day started with the girls at the Marriott downtown where the girls were partying, getting hair and makeup done, and waiting for the big reveal by Devin. While the boys were spending their time trying to figure out how to make a bow-tie. :) For creative pictures, we traveled all around downtown Chicago to create some of the epic images you see below.…

Sal Cincotta Miami Wedding Photography

Sal Cincotta Miami Wedding Photography Name | Vince + Samantha Date | 3.9.18 Ceremony | The Hotel Colonnade, Coral Gables, Florida Reception | The Hotel Colonnade, Coral Gables, Florida Wedding Photography | Sal Cincotta & Alissa Zimmerman Florist & Decor | Daniel Events Wedding Photography Location | Miami, Florida Vince and Samantha. These two. What can I say? See, Samantha is the daughter of good friends Rick and Yvonne, but that's really just the first fold of this story. I taught Samantha how to hit her first tennis ball when she was barely walking. Now, Rick would like to think he did, but, I am stealing the thunder on this one. :) Sammy would sit up at the tennis courts with us for hours because Rick was supposed to be babysitting, but he and I were tennis junkies! Sammy sat there patiently watching, waiting, and eventually would begin to chase…

Libby Wedding Photography | Sal Cincotta

Libby Wedding Photography | Sal Cincotta I have been a wedding photographer in St Louis for over 10 years now. I thought I had seen and experienced it all, but I was wrong. March weather is always unpredictable, but this was a new one for me. See, I was in Las Vegas at a conference getting ready to board a flight to Boston for a wedding I was shooting in New Hampshire. When I arrived at the airport, I found out all flights were cancelled due to a nor'easter hitting the east coast. Soonest they could get me in was Sunday night. Well, shit, that wasn't going to work, the wedding was Saturday morning. My bride and groom, as cool about things as could be. She said, "don't worry about it, I understand if you can't get here." Weather be damned. I was not missing this wedding. The journey soon…

St Louis Wedding Photography at Xavier

St Louis Wedding Photography at Xavier Small intimate weddings are the perfect way to celebrate your day. Surround yourself with your closest friends and family and you have the perfect day. The day started out quiet with family for these two. The ceremony was just gorgeous! It always is at St Francis Xavier Church. One of the most ornate churches in the St Louis area. I love shooting here, mostly because I am from New York and the churches there have incredible architecture and history. We stayed after the ceremony to capture something a little more intimate for the two of them in the church. From there, we were off to some urban locations around the city. Finally, the day ended with the reception at the Mal House Cellar. It was a perfect end to the day. Diner was served in this candlelit rustic cellar and then a final surprise…

Salt Flats Bridal Portraits Veldkamp

Salt Flats Bridal Portraits Bridal portraits are a great way to add more creative pictures to your wedding photography. Some couples choose to do it on the day of the wedding, but others are starting to embrace the idea of shooting them on a different day in a different location. This allows you to take your time away from the pressure of the day to create some truly unique wedding portraits. John and Lindsey had their wedding in St. Louis, but wanted to do something different afterwards. During a recent trip to Salt Lake City, they joined me for a private session that took us right to the sunset hour. Enjoy these gorgeous images from their bridal session. Recently we photographed another wedding in Utah - check them out here.
