this is the VERY LAST silverbox BLOGSPOT post.
but don't be sad.
because we're in poland now with our "win our hearts, win your wedding" winners and thought geez what better time to introduce a new silverbox look?
click right here and you'll be directed to our new Silver Lining home page and get a glimpse of what's up this weekend in warsaw (as well as how we've grown.)

amy + ryan . . . married underneath a houppa perched on the bluffs at Les Bourgeois Vineyards overlooking the Missouri River.
amy and ryan's wedding day was as heartfelt and moving as a day can possibly be. rich in spirit,
rich in laughter, rich in love, rich in jewish traditions . . . their houpa, first outside:
and then, when the rain teased us, we moved inside:
signing the ketubah before the ceremony:
jumping over the broom (great action shots by annika) at ceremony's end:
and at the start of the reception, sharing bread:
followed by toasts from loved ones, including a moving tribute to ryan from his brother:
amy and ryan both got ready at the Schoolhouse B&B in Rocheport . . . it's a private, lovely spot
both indoors and out. this first shot of guys getting ready is by karen:
and then we took advantage of the B&B's beautiful grounds for a private moment:
and time with friends:
amy and ryan's day was glorious! It was difficult to choose pictures for this blog entry; there
was so much more to their day than what a handful of photos could portray. So be sure to
watch their wedding slideshow to see it all unfold.
adam is a true entreprenuer with more ideas up his sleeve than your average guy . . . he's practically a
household name in columbia . . . chances are the kids in your life have seen his magic show or you've popped
into one of his latest ventures on Elm Street: the Upper Crust and Cold Stone Creamery.
adam's claim to fame in MY world, however, was that he is ashley patton's (formerly ashley guy's) brother . . .
i shot ashley and chase patton's wedding 2 year ago, and adam single-handedly decorated
Stephens College's Firestone Baars Chapel so that his sister and chase's ceremony was set against a
wonderland of white flowing fabric.
so I wondered: how was someone as bright, creative and just-so-darn-nice as adam ever going to meet his
match?! well, of course, he's succeeded at that too! caroline shines bright! they'll tie the knot in St. Louis next
but in the meantime . . . we went on an engagement shoot adventure:
the last part of our session took place during that sun-kissed "golden hour" just before sunset . . . brides and
grooms TAKE NOTE!: if you want the best possible wedding day pictures, plan your day so that we can make
pictures of the two of you just before sunset . . . it's a dreamy time and a dreamy look:
and a bit of sun flair fun:
adam and caroline, congrats on your engagement and thanks for choosing silverbox! oh, and I almost forgot:
see the slideshow for more golden hour engagement prictures!
the conversation started the way it starts with so many SilverBox couples:
what a hoot!
drew + sarah . . . about to embark on marriage, an out-of-state move, an advanced degree for
sarah and . . . a photography career for drew! i'm so happy and excited for you two!
(if there's anything that could possibly make me even more excited to photograph a wedding . . .
it would be photographing a photographer's wedding!) check back in late june to see drew +
sarah say their "i do's".
but before that, check out a few of my favorites from their engagement session
be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom 'cause we experimented with some "one-light" (off
camera strobe) pictures at dusk that were worth hauling tripod + umbrella across the creek for
. . . there's a slideshow too ~ click here!
