Hallo!

AND WELCOME TO MY LITTLE VIRTUAL HOME
RSP family & wedding photography st louis o'fallon missouri

As you might have guessed by now – I’m a huge animal lover. When I’m not busy teaching my dog Photoshop, you can most likely find me buried under a big blanket, snacking on German Chocolates. I have an unhealthy obsession for throw pillows, oversized sweaters, comfy PJ’s, anything boho-inspired, and coffee mugs – even though I didn’t get into the whole coffee craze until I turned 30. Ever since then I’ve been running on caffeine and feel-good music.

I live for the little moments – late-night conversations by the bonfire, slow dancing in the kitchen with my husband, making up stories with my kids, pillow fights, and lazy days on the couch.

I love how the sound of rain hitting a tin roof instantly transports me back to my childhood and how I still get excited for the first day of snow. I love being able to pass on family traditions and preserve the magic of special moments and memories for my children as my parents did for me.

Some of my most useless ( yet impressive) talents including eating an entire tub of chocolate ice cream in one sitting, solving a Rubik’s cube faster than my husband. (I’m probably the most competitive person you’ll ever meet) and not getting bored over listening to a song on repeat until I’ve memorized the lyrics. I’m also a fantastic car dancer if I may say so myself.

WHY PHOTOGRAPHY?

wedding photographer stl missouri
ALWAYS THE GIRL WITH THE CAM.

Our life is a never-ending adventure full of emotions – colorful and ever-changing. I always felt that memories were slipping through my fingers and I had to find a way to hold on to those situations and people I don’t ever want to forget. I wanted to remember how I felt when I became a wife, held my children for the first time, documented our babies’ first steps, and their transformation into strong and independent people.

But most of all – I want to help you hold on to your memories. I want to capture your fleeting situations and be your storyteller through life.

From perfectly interlocking hands to tear-filled promises of forever, little kicks in your stomach, tiny hands on your face, secret whispers in your ear, bearhugs, tickle fights, and butterfly kisses – I will carefully preserve all those unscripted moments for generations to come – authentic, raw and emotional.

Our

LOVE STORY

Music has been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember – I LOVED the Beatles growing up.

I’ve also always been drawn to Ireland and red hair. When I was a teenager, I told my mom that one day I was going to have red-headed children – a boy and a girl.

At 19 years old, I went out with a friend and a devilishly handsome redhead American walked up to me – singing a Beatles song. I don’t think I have to explain why I was immediately smitten with that man.

Luckily my man felt mutual about me.

He deployed to Iraq after we had only been dating for less than a year and after spending a year apart, we both knew that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together.

So he popped the question as soon as he returned home from his deployment, and we got married two months later.

Even though my prediction about two read head children has only come 75% true – my happily ever after has come 100% true.
