Main Street Abbey | Regan & Griffin

Regan and Griffin are one of the sweetest couples ever and I am so happy we met and got to work together! I met these two through an instagram giveaway when I decided to give away a mini engagement session to a couple around the holidays. I do some type of giveaway every year around the holidays to show my appreciation to past and future clients because I love them all so much and feel so lucky to have the job that I do! They won my giveaway and ended up loving their engagement pictures, so they decided to hire me as their wedding photographer.

All of my packages include an engagement session, so I got to work with them a couple times before their wedding day. They decided to have their wedding ceremony at the Main Street Abbey in Columbia, IL. This was my first time shooting at this venue and it turned out to be one of my favorite Illinois wedding venues. The reception took place at Windows on Washington, which is an industrial-chic style wedding venue in St. Louis, MO. It was a beautiful day! 

Check out the images from their big day below!

After the ceremony they decided to have their party bus stop at Top Shooters bar and grill and grab some shots before they headed to their STL reception venue. This couple and their friends were such a fun group and it was a blast getting to take photos of this quick detour!

Then we headed to Windows on Washington in St. Louis, MO for their reception to celebrate the new Mr. & Mrs.

She is very positive and responsive and open to any new ideas. She even stayed a little extra to take more pictures. The pictures were perfect and she captured all the moments. Me and my family loved them!! She also worked really hard to get them a little early, which I really appreciate. I would definitely recommend her!!

"Morgan was amazing!!! I loved working with her."

She is sweet, easy to work with and came prepared with poses and direction. She took the time to view our initial chosen park location prior to our session and suggested a different location due to the scenery dying out in December. She is gifted with her camera and has a natural ability to capture real moments. Follow her lead and you’ll love the memories created from the magic she captures! 

"Morgan was extremely responsive from the beginning. "

I was stuck on a budget and was planning my wedding with the date coming right up with no photographer booked yet. Even though my wedding was on such short notice, Morgan said she could do my wedding pictures and fit my budget. The pictures she took are stunning and I can’t stop looking at them. 

"I had my wedding pictures done by Morgan and I am so happy I did! "


This is not just a talent, but a calling. I was searching for a photographer for my 18th birthday and she took the assignment and did more than just extra credit. I am truly pleased and this will not be the last photoshoot with this amazing human being! 

"This woman is a work of beautiful art.  "
