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.

Las Vegas Vow Renewals

What an incredible day with these two in Las Vegas. Greg & LaRae are professional photographers, so it was with great pride and nervousness I took the job to photograph their Las Vegas Vow Renewals in the city of Las Vegas. When working with photographers, you know that they are judging everything you do. :) Good or bad. So, you better bring your A-Game. The energy and connection between the two of them was real and it made the day so much more enjoyable. They are two down-to-Earth people and we love them for it. As you can tell, this is one funky couple marching to their own beat. They are not the normal white dress, black tux bride and groom. They are rock-and-roll! LaRae made the dress herself and she nailed it if you ask me. It is incredibly unique and fits her personality. The locations, well, they speak…

New York City Engagement Pictures

Check out these awesome New York City engagement pictures from one of our recent shoots in New York. Samantha and Vince are getting married in Florida, but wanted their engagement pictures in New York City. Who wouldn't? We had an incredible day driving around the city and creating these stunning portraits for them. Best tip for getting your engagement pictures in New York City? Rent an SUV for the day. It's one of the best investments you can make. Parking in the city is a nightmare and when you are running around the city with different outfits and equipment having a dedicated ride makes everything easier. Enjoy the photos.

Novy Wedding Photography | Sal Cincotta

Name | Alex + Chelsie Date | 9.16.17 Ceremony | The Falls Reception & Conference Center Reception | The Falls Reception & Conference Center Wedding Photography | Sal Cincotta & Alissa Zimmerman Florist | Hand-made by the bride, Chelsie DJ/Band | TopCats DJ What an awesome wedding! One of my favorite touches on the day were the custom wooden flower for the bridal party. It was a great way to add a personal touch to the day. This day started out with a little bit of panic because of the protests going on downtown St Louis. This threw a little bit of a wrench into where Chelsie and Alex wanted to get their creative pictures done. Turns out this was a non-issue on the day. We found some cool urban scenes nearby and crisis averted. :) The day went smooth as could be. It's always refreshing to see two families…

Name | Ely + Sarah Date | 9.9.17 Ceremony | St. Francis Xavier College Church Reception | Windows on Washington Wedding Photography | Sal Cincotta & Alissa Zimmerman DJ/Band | Complete Music What an incredible day this was. Ely and Sarah were amazing to work with and their day was filled with tons of little personal touches making the day that much more special for their friends and family. We were lucky enough to be part of documenting this incredible wedding, but beyond documenting it, their friends and family truly made us feel like part of the family. As many photographers know, it's so important to connect with your clients and immerse yourself into the group. I knew this was no ordinary wedding when I had the family make silly faces for the camera and everyone including mom got in on the action. I knew I was with "my people". :) Congratulations to Ely and Sarah!…
