How I Work, Wedding

Beating the Heat for Casual Formals at Quail Ridge Park

Staying cool in the St. Louis heat.

I don’t care for extensive posing. Most of the day I capture events as they unfold naturally. But every wedding requires some posed photos, and when the time comes I really prefer to keep it casual and natural. If people naturally like to lean against things, or stick a hand in a pocket I say “go for it!” It’s more fun for everyone involved and it captures more of each person’s personality.

This was at Quail Ridge Park in Wentzville on one of those 100+ degrees days we’ve been enjoying lately. We’d run outside for a few minutes, grab some photos, and run back inside to cool off before heading back out again. It actually worked out really well to keep everyone reasonable comfortable in the heat, but it was important to work fast. Perfect for my style of casual formals.
