Everyone keeps asking where we are getting our pictures taken around St. Louis and I hadn’t really given it any thought past going to Forest Park where we Fiance proposed.
Other thank FP I want to go to places that aren’t as trendy and normal.
Where are planning to go or wish you would have gone?

We did the new City Garden. It was awesome and I think they turned out great!

What I WISH we had done, was go to the City Museum. It’s a bit of a pain, your photographer has to call and make an “appointment”, and then you have to pay admission for everyone (including the photographer), but I think you could get some AWESOME photos. I also wanted to do more photos downtown with the buildings, etc. but we ran out of time. Forest Park is great though, and there are a lot of different areas in the park, you could go to the Boathouse, Jewel Box, Zoo, Muny.

We did our engagements at City Museum which was AWESOME and we did our wedding photos at the Larimore Mansion, where we got married.
StL doesn’t have a lot of atypical places unfortunately. At least, I’m not aware of many that are close by =

tower grove park is really pretty. It’s a little different than forest park, there’s a cute little area with some “ruins” and a pond. there’s the botanical garden, you could go down to the riverfront, the arch, Union Station, the stadium (if you’re cards fans). I’m sure there are some old buildings down in soulard or something that would be neat to be photographed in. If you guys are from st. louis, you could get your pictures taken at your old high school or if you went to college in the area you could get some there too. I don’t know where you could go “officially” but i’m pretty sure if you drive out west on 44 past eureka, right where it starts getting “mountainous” and wooded, that should be absolutely beautiful around your october wedding. Not sure how that’d work for wedding pictures though :-/ The Central West End’s bound to have some neat places to photograph. I think if you could look up just some historic buildings that’d be neat. I think the Magic Chef Mansion would be really cool, but I’m not sure i’d be available just for photos. I love the old houses and buildings in St. Louis so I’m tending to think of those.
I hope that was in some way helpful. I’m just kind of spouting off ideas–sorry it’s so random, I really should be sleeping.
Let us know what you decide!!

We got married in Tower Grove and did some there, but also went to the City Museum (if you know someone who lives in the lofts there, they get 5 free tickets every day…we happened to have a connection through someone I work with), Washington Ave, the warehouse district down near the arch (I was skeptical, but the pictures I’ve seen turned out really cool!), and a couple other random urban spots. There’s some cool places in Soulard too. We asked our photographer and she had some fun ideas. Could also do Union Station (although they charge for pictures taken in the hotel lobby) or the grafitti wall down by the river. Hope that’s helpful!
