Steve Loves Alex | Married

I met Alex back in 2010 when I became an advisor for the Kappa Theta chapter of Sigma Kappa at SLU. Alex had joined the fall after I graduated, so we just missed being in the sorority at the same time. We’ve become good friends over the past four years, and I was ecstatic when she told me she was engaged and then hired me to be her wedding photographer for her September 2014 wedding.

All was well until she called me one day in early June. It was a phone call that I’ve experienced before. Steve’s mom is very ill. Alex and Steve are very much family people, and family being present for the beginning of their marriage was far more important to them then planning an extravagant wedding and inviting hundreds of people. They wanted to share this intimate wedding with their closest family members, and she wanted me to document this precious time they still have with Steve’s mom.

If you know anything about me, you know that I lost both of my parents far too soon. I lost my dad when I was only four years old in a car accident, and I lost my mom to cancer in 2009. Last year, I spent a LOT of time thinking about why I do this. Why am I a photographer? Why am I a wedding photographer? It’s because the photos are the proof that you lived and were loved. It’s because I want to surround myself with couples who care even more about their marriage and what that truly means than the details of their wedding day. It’s because I want to freeze those moments with the people that mean the absolute most to them in this world, because one day…one day they will be gone. And when they’re gone, the only thing in the world you have left of them are your memories.

So when Alex and I talked, I couldn’t hold it together. I couldn’t even hold it together when I was talking to her about the timeline and family photos. So when I walked in on Saturday morning, I knew I had already lost the battle with tears. I lost it with Kate, Alex’s mom, and Christy, Steve’s sister. When her dad saw her for the first time and I caught the tears rolling down the faces of her parents and her sister, I lost it. When Steve saw her walking down the aisle…lost it again. When both moms had a moment during the ceremony…yep. tears. lots of them. But when I heard Steve’s mom and dad’s reading and listened to those words about what marriage is all about and the small moments that make up a life together…and remembering that we’re not all so fortunate to live forever and be a part of those moments…but remembering that we DO have those moments right now…I was a mess. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room.

That, my friends, is why I became a wedding photographer. If I was put on this planet to just be there this past Saturday to be able to use my gift for Alex and Steve and their families…that’s enough for me. Congratulations, Alex + Steve. Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your wedding day and for giving me the opportunity to spend time with your loved ones. I’m so unbelievably happy for you two, and I’m so grateful that you both are a part of our life. You’re role models for what marriage is all about, and I couldn’t be happier to call you two friends. ♥

I can’t wait to celebrate again with you two in September.:)

Russell Loves Jessica | Married

The blog is back…and with some very gorgeous images from this gold sparkle winery wedding. <3

A few weeks ago, I came back from maternity leave to a double header wedding weekend. Outdoors. Hot. Wineries when I was working and couldn’t have a glass. Leaving my baby for the first time for a long period of time.

But it was awesome. I had two of the most amazing couples, and I loved every minute of that weekend.

Jessica and Russell’s wedding was the second of the weekend, and although I was tired, I couldn’t have been more excited to head over to Pocohontas for their Copper Dock Winery wedding. I had shot a glamour party back in March for Jessica and her bridesmaids, so I knew the day was going to be a ton of fun since I already had a relationship with the girls. I feel like the photos are 10x better than they would have been had we not done that party! I also knew Jessica had put a lot of thought and a lot of work into the details of her day, and they completely trusted me and gave me free reign and the time I needed to create beautiful images. That was AWESOME.

I’m pretty obsessed with gold glitter, so when she told me her wedding was going to be gold sparkles, outdoors, with blush accents…I pretty much died.

photo of gold wedding details

I just happened to look out the back window of the motel and saw this fence and these metal contraptions. Only a photographer would say “oh that would be a cool place to hang the dresses.” I think the girls thought I was nuts!

photo of wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses outside on farmphoto of wedding dress details

It’s not really fair to the rest of us that Jessica is so beautiful inside and out. Seriously, she couldn’t be any more genuine. I’m so grateful to call her a friend.:)

photo of wedding makeupphoto of bride getting hair and makeup done

Russell isn’t too bad himself. He’s pretty stellar. They’re a perfect match.

photo of groom getting ready

When I say they trusted me, they really trusted me. I suggested she…gasp…get ready outside. She obliged, and I’m obsessed with the results.

photo of bride getting ready outside at copper dock winery with her mom

We also had a big reveal once she was dressed and ready to go for her bridesmaids. That moment was SO fun!

photo of bridesmaids seeing bride for the first time at copper dock winery

This…this is why I suggest doing first looks. It just enhances the experience, gives you more time together, more photos, better photos, and that excitement…that’ll never get old.

photo of outdoor first lookI love this bridal party. A lot. I want to hang out with them all the time.

They DIYed all the flowers. They were BEAUTIFUL.

Jessica managed to wrangle a vintage car for their portraits. Yup. She’s seriously a dream bride.

Jessica, you are stunning.

Oh…so about this. They’re PREGNANT! Isn’t this the cutest pregnancy announcement ever?!

Le Sigh. I love this decor.

photo of blush manzanita ceremony decor and gold glitter wine bottles and diy chandelier for outdoor ceremonyphoto of gold glitter wine bottles as ceremony decorI told you the first look only enhances it. Just as much emotion walking down the aisle as without a first look. Probably more emotion and less nerves!

Love this shot that my awesome second, Katie, got!

photo of outdoor ceremony at copper dock winery with chalkboards

I cried right along with you two. So happy for you guys!!

They even let me behind them so that I could get their first kiss with their guests in the background. How cool is that?!

Those first moments of newlywed bliss. Perfection.

As the sun was going down, we snuck away for a few minutes to go over to the winery. I love giving my couples little pockets of time to spend together on their day since it goes by so unbelievably fast.

Gorgeous.

Shots! Perhaps laying under guys with shot glasses with expensive camera equipment isn’t the best idea…but it’s cool.

photo of groomsmen taking a shot

They also let me try out our photobooth for the first time! It was a smashing success!

photo of st louis photobooth

We capped off the night with a beautiful sparkler exit!

It couldn’t have been a more perfect day, and I’m so grateful that you allowed us to document the beginning of your marriage. We love you guys, and we can’t wait for Baby English’s arrival in December!! <3

greg loves elizabeth | married

I’ve been looking forward to Greg and Elizabeth’s wedding at Cedar Lake Cellars Winery in Wright City for over a year now! I was so excited when she told me that they were booking Cedar Lake, because it really is one of my favorite venues in the Saint Louis area. When I found out I was pregnant, I begged my OB to let me shoot this wedding at 6 weeks after giving birth. She obliged, but she wasn’t too thrilled about the prospect. I’m so glad it worked out and that we were able to be there as Greg, Elizabeth, and Haillie made their family official!

photo of wine barrels in front of wineryWe really lucked out with an absolutely gorgeous, sunny day! Rain was in the forecast all week, but I had faith it’d skip over us.

Cedar Lake Cellars has all of these cute little details throughout the property. If you’re a barn-loving, wine-drinking, burlap and lace, vintage-type of couple who loves the country, you should really check this venue out. It’s beautiful, the staff is lovely and oh so helpful, and it’s affordable! Win win!

I *LOVE* Elizabeth’s rose gold ring. Like obsessed with it. We had to do some epic ring shots with it.:)

photo of epic ring shot

…and her Vera Wang wedding gown…DROOL.

photo of vera wang wedding dressShe also had these gorgeous bouquets made from a gal on etsy. They’re balsa wood, fabric roses, and book page flowers. Aren’t they awesome?! What a cool idea, and you’ll be able to always have it long after your wedding day.

photo of balsa wood diy etsy flowersphoto of vera wang headband

Check out these custom blinged out shoes! She has their wedding date, their monogram, and little burlap flowers to tie in her centerpieces on them. They were so cute (and comfy!)

photo of diy bling converse wedding shoes

Pretty much in love with these two images of Greg and Elizabeth nervously awaiting their first look. That gown and that light…swoon!

photo of bride wearing vera wang wedding dress

Greg and Elizabeth also opted for a first look. We got a few minutes of overcast skies which was a huge blessing for this photographer who is kind of a light snob.

photo of first look at cedar lake cellarsphoto of first look at cedar lake cellarsphoto of first look at cedar lake cellarsphoto of first look at cedar lake cellarsphoto of first look at cedar lake cellars

When I saw this image of Elizabeth and Haillie pop up on the back of my camera, I almost cried. This was the first day I had left Jackson to shoot a wedding, and the bond between a mother and her child is just amazing. I would print a huge canvas of this and hang it in my house if it were me. How special is it that Haillie got to be the flower girl at her mommy and daddy’s wedding?!

photo of bride and her little girl

Cedar Lake has an awesome setup for ceremonies. But this ceremony was seriously the FASTEST CEREMONY EVER. Start to finish, probably less than 5 minutes. Made it a little difficult on me running around like a mad woman!

photo of lakeside winery wedding

We opted to do the bride and groom portraits at sunset after they ate dinner and the guests were still eating. This is a great time to sneak away and give us time to get creative without pressure from the timeline and also gives you two a chance to have some alone time together. And the light…le sigh.

I love that they let their goofy personalities shine through. They’re so cute together!!

photo of bride and groom laughingphoto of bride and groom with a thank you banner

Elizabeth, you are breathtaking.

I *LOVE* when couples write their own vows. How cute are these little vow books! What a cool keepsake!

photo of diy wood vow bookphoto of bride wearing vera wang wedding gown and a vintage brooch bracelet

I adore this simple burlap and wildflower mason jar decor.

photo of diy mason jar burlap and lace wedding centerpieces

and the vintage books and the cute Mr and Mrs chair sign!

photo of mr and mrs chair signsphoto of cedar lake card box

Their guestbook was one of a kind. They had these super cute little wooden hearts made that everyone signed. We signed one, too.:)

photo of wood guest book

These little custom bride and groom champagne glasses were adorable!

photo of vintage book wedding decor and bride and groom champagne flutes

Elizabeth + Greg chose not to cut a cake but instead had a sweets bar. Elizabeth’s mom and aunts made chocolate covered strawberries, pies, cheesecakes, and cookies. We had to sample. They were amazing. The cookies…Elizabeth…have Aunt Mary send me that recipe!!

photo of diy sweets and pie barphoto of bride and groom champagne glasses during wedding toasts

Greg + Elizabeth’s daughter Haillie was pretty adorable, so we had to get some photos of her playing!

photo of flower girl running

Like I said, they opted not to cut a cake, so instead Greg fed Elizabeth a chocolate covered strawberry, and Elizabeth fed Greg a chocolate chip cookie. Cookies…yum. My kind of “cake cutting.” And the light…see…this is why Cedar Lake Cellars Winery is one of my all time favorite venues.

photo of bride and groom feeding each other strawberries and cookies

Ummm, could Haillie be any cuter during her mommy and daddy’s first dance?!

photo of sunset first dance at cedar lake winery

And because it was my first time away from Jackson, when I saw Haillie dancing during the first dance, I had my second shooter, Katie, run over to the DJ to play a song so that Greg could dance with Haillie. These are some of the sweetest images I’ve ever taken.

photo of groom dancing with his daughter

and then Mommy joined in! I love these pictures so, so, so much.

photo of bride dancing with her daughterHer maid of honor really tried hard to catch the bouquet. Her boyfriend was awfully happy she didn’t. (you should have been cheering her on to catch it, bud!!)

funny photo of bouquet toss

Before we left, Greg + Elizabeth let us pull them aside for some night portraits. Night portraits are the best. They’re romantic, so much fun, and I love that we can get a view of the whole party behind them!

Thanks for letting us capture the beginning of your marriage and making your family “official.” It was truly an honor. I really value the two of you as clients, friends, and fellow parents. <3

Jackson’s Teal + Grey Chevron Safari Nursery

Our baby boy is due TOMORROW. AHH! Cue panic. I have had one last burst of energy, so I finished Jackson’s Teal + Grey Chevron Safari Nursery and decided to blog it and tell you all about my DIY projects and where I got things from since lots of people have asked.:)

I figured it’s probably easiest to start with a look into the room and move around the room clockwise. The room itself isn’t very big (probably only about 11 by 11), so I made a model of the room on a piece of paper and made cutouts of everything we were looking at buying to make sure it all fit. I highly recommend doing this, because I would have been really upset if the stuff we picked out didn’t fit! Our house already had crown molding and baseboards, but John and I DIYed the chair rail in the room. It wasn’t terrible once we got the hang of it, but of course, neither of us look up how to do anything before we do it, so it was a bit of a learning curve.

In this first set of images:

Crib + Nightstand: Jefferson by Muniere in Slate
Sheet: Bamboo Azure Crib Sheet by Aden + Anais
Crib Skirt: MyFrecklesShop on Etsy
Teething Guard: My FrecklesShop on Etsy (it’s actually three pieces, but I figured he doesn’t have teeth yet…so I just put on the front piece)
Wall Letters: GoingGaGa on Etsy
Curtains: Grey Chevron Blackout Curtains from Pottery Barn Kids
Rug: RugsUSA (because I love the PBK rug but didn’t want to shell out $600 bucks for it!)

teal and grey chevron safari nurseryThe mobile was one of my insomnia DIY Projects during the second trimester. I purchased a mobile from Target so that I had the grey chevron arm, musical spinny thing, and a frame. I purchased the template for the mobile from iManuFatti on Etsy, and then I hand stitched everything. I’m not a sewing gal, so it’s a little wonky, but cute nonetheless!
teal and grey chevron safari nursery

The lamp was another DIY project. I really love Jonathan Adler, but umm…can’t afford his stuff. I purchased a really hideous lamp from Amazon, took the shade off, spray painted the entire thing white, and picked up a grey shade from Target. Cheap. Cute. A la fake Jonathan Adler.

Nightlight: Kinderglo Elephant (it changes colors, doesn’t overheat, and baby can sleep with it when he gets older. Highly recommend!)
Noise Machine: HoMedics SoundSpa Lullaby Sound Machine from Buy Buy Baby

teal and grey chevron safari nursery

Our glider was one of the first big purchases we made. It’s from Buy Buy Baby. I love that you can customize the fabric and colors. This one reclines, swivels, and glides. Looove it. I DIYed the four safari animal pictures. I just found some animals I liked online, traced them onto cardstock and put them in a frame. Easy peasy.

Glider Pillow + Boppy Cover + Blanket: MyFrecklesShop on Etsy

teal and grey chevron safari nursery

These paper mache safari animals were actually the very first baby item we purchased on our anniversary trip in Santa Barbara back when we were only 6 weeks pregnant. They’re one of a kind and what started the safari theme.

Shelves: Target
Banner: DIY
Lovey: Jellycat (embroidered)
Candles: Target (LED)

teal and grey chevron safari nurseryThis is another piece from the Jefferson by Muniere collection. It’s awesome.

Changing Pad Cover: Azure Bamboo by Aden + Anais
Elephant Baskets: Pottery Barn Kids
Teal Handled Baskets: Target
Monitor: Foscam (Amazon)
Elephant Pillow: LilKingdom on Etsy
teal and grey chevron safari nurseryThis is looking back towards the door now. That empty wall will hold a canvas collection of maternity photos once I pick out which ones I want to order. The hooks on the door are another DIY 2nd Trimester Insomnia project. I saw it originally on pinterest. It’s a Martha Stewart project, but I didn’t bother using her stencils. You don’t need ‘em.

Elephant Hamper: Home Decorators
Diaper Pail: Ubbi from Buy Buy Baby
teal and grey chevron safari nursery

This is the other dresser from the Jefferson by Muniere Collection. The wall will eventually hold a large canvas of our favorite newborn photo of Jackson. I can’t wait to have Anne Meintrup shoot those photos in less than two weeks! Eek!

Chevron Switchplate: Hobby Lobby
Elephant Stuffed Animal/Embroidered Blanket: Pottery Barn Kids
Chevron J: Hobby Lobby
Crane Humidifier: Amazon

teal and grey chevron safari nurseryWe took the doors off the closet and hung another set of Grey Chevron Blackout Curtains from Pottery Barn Kids over it instead. The right side of our closet holds our City Mini GT stroller, and the left side holds all of Jackson’s hanging clothes. In the middle are some shelves that have all of his blankets, Aden + Anais swaddles, burp cloths, washcloths, towels, etc. I didn’t want to buy tiebacks, so I just grabbed some ribbon from Michaels and knotted them.

teal and grey chevron safari nurseryAnd now we’re back to where we started. Just looking back into the corner. The pictures on the wall are just old frames I had lying around that I spray painted white, and then I used an elephant punch from Amazon and some scrapbook paper to make them. Super simple.

Bookcase + Baskets: Target
Stuffed Safari Animals on Top of Bookcase: Mary Meyer on Amazon
Giant Giraffe: Melissa + Doug on Amazon
Elephant Rocker: Pottery Barn Kids

teal and grey chevron safari nursery
Now all we need is our sweet baby boy in our arms! I can’t wait to bring him back to this adorable nursery we’ve created for him.:D

May 4, 2014 - 4:58 pm

Melissa - This is so adorable…great job!! That is one gigantic giraffe :)

May 4, 2014 - 7:09 pm

Aunt Margie - Jackson’s room is just darling. You did a great job. He is one lucky boy! Can’t wait o meet him. Usually get that burst of energy right before the baby comes. Maybe that is a good sign.

May 4, 2014 - 7:58 pm

Nicole - Ah! My two favorite colors, turquoise and grey! I love everything about this. Especially the ginormous giraffe!

The Ashley Fisher Photography Launch Party!

It’s FINALLY here! After months and months of soul searching, planning, writing, chatting…our new website, blog, and exclusive client lounge are LIVE! I had the extraordinary honor of working with the fabulous Meg Long of Meg Long Creative. LOVE her. Seriously. She took all of my mumbo jumbo and turned it into something beautiful.

One of the biggest priorities of our rebranding was to focus on what we love most…weddings. Yes, we’re still going to be shooting glamour, and we are opening our calendar back up to a limited amount of family sessions, as well as baby sessions (maternity/birth/newborn/first year), but our main focus will be weddings + engagements! And then our other big project was to create a client lounge to be a resource for our brides. The client lounge has a TON of information on it to make sure your wedding day is what you dreamed of, and you’ll know exactly what it’s like to be an AFP bride before you ever even sign the contract. We’re so excited to offer this new service to our couples, and the few people who have been our awesome testers have had nothing but positive things to say about it! The lounge will not be password protected today for the launch party, but it will beginning on Wednesday!

Oh and one last bit of news…

jackson

That’s right, we’re having a BABY! And…it’s a BABY BOY! Jackson David Fisher (aka JD) will be making his arrival around Cinco De Mayo! I will not be accepting weddings from the end of February-the end of June (minus the few I already have on the books and have cleared with the docs). I will be picking weddings back up towards the end of June and will be accepting new bookings for weddings after July 1! I’m so excited to be a mommy and to share this adventure with all of my readers! And PS…JD already needs a new photo. This one is OLD! Thank goodness for a 3D ultrasound in a few weeks!:)
