When you're picking out bridesmaid dresses, remember that your friends are on budgets. Even if they're absolutely gorgeous, don't pick a gown that is going to make it difficult for them to purchase.

Let's talk style

Now let’s talk style and forms of photography. Your wedding is the most memorable and major milestone in your life. The money spent on purchasing your dress, romantic venue, beautiful flowers, and other small fees which go together to make your ideal day. You like your memories recorded in order to reflect your style and personality. Different photographers shoot in various styles and it is essential to cut through the sales pitches to get one that can help you match your wedding photographs.

Good Bye 2013

Hope everyone had a very happy holiday and stayed safe. Wow, we’re here already...another year has passed and what a year it has been. I have shot a ton of beautiful weddings and met lots and lots of wonderful people. My business is shifting into more commercial real-estate and seniors to fill in the blanks around my passion…weddings. This year I am fortunate enough to have been asked to contribute towards a collaborative project with some down town St Louis real-estate projects. So good bye 2013 and hello 2014 a better year coming. 

Happy New Year 2014

Happy New Year's Day! What a great time for reminiscing about this past year and a great time for visualizing the New Year ahead!  For some of you, 2014 will be that amazing year when you become engaged and/or get married. As a St Louis wedding photographer, I get excited with the prospects of a new year and the privilege of photographing the bride and groom's special day. For others, you may need a photographer to assist in photographing your real estate properties.

Reasons to Blog

I want to explain why I write blogs and why they are important to you and me. First I try to write about solid content or some information that you my reader may find interesting or of value.  If you watch my Facebook I mix it up with some quotes from notable people, or some of my other blogs I write. This is to keep you my reader engaged and interested in what I have found for you. 
The other reason to write blogs is it gets folks to come to my website and vastly increase my business visibility and drive exponential future sales.

Aspiring beginners please read

I have shot many weddings and events over the summer in and around St Louis and I seem to get a recurring scenario. I get approached by folks wanting tips to improve their photography.  Some folks have purchased the latest camera and don’t quite know how to achieve the results they see in magazines, others are shooting upcoming events.  I will call these folks aspiring beginners. They are wonderful folks with great personalities; they are liked by everyone. They always have their camera and share the photos with everyone.

Oh the beautiful colors of a fall wedding

Oh the beautiful colors of a fall wedding. This fall season finds me still doing quite a few outdoor weddings. The weather has certainly been cooperating. The superhero theme is still quite popular. The last wedding I shot had a St. Louis Cardinals theme and mascot Fredbird showed up at the reception. That’s what I love about what I do…capturing the bride and groom’s special day that is significant exclusively to them. On another note, I am still shooting high school senior photos.

This summers trends

This summer's wedding colors have been splendid. They are bright and sophisticated. Coral,Purple,teal, and sage. The choice of bouquets this summer multi color the dominate color complimenting the bridesmaids dresses. The men's attire have included silver, gold, and traditional black. Also prevalent this summer is formal settings. The most fascinating cake that I've photographed was a super hero (Batman cake)? From formal cathedral style weddings to outdoor backyard weddings, this has been a summer filled with a large splash of color.

Spring Engagement St Louis

Spring is a wonderful time of the year for your engagement photos. There are endless locations that provide the perfect background for fabulous shots of the engaged couple. Whether it's Laclede's Landing, the riverfront or the Arch, downtown, Forest Park, Missouri Botanical Gardens, or the St Louis Zoo…you choose that special place. Engagement sessions are meant to be relaxed, fun, and enjoyable. Each session presents an ideal opportunity for me to become acquainted with both of you and discuss the wedding day schedule.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! What a familiar greeting offering hopeful anticipation and opportunity. It comes gift-wrapped and opening this special gift is a personal journey. It is my hope that your new year is filled with abundant blessings and realized dreams. I would consider it a privilege to help you capture those special moments that will be treasured for years to come. Don't forget to book early. Wishing everyone a prosperous and healthy 2013. dave hunsche photography
