Situated outside St. Louis in almost the middle of nowhere is the ruins of a small church. Built in 1883, the church has stood the test of time, or at least the walls have. Long gone is the roof, floor and windows. The ruins are well tended and sit at the entrance to a cemetery with headstones dating back to the mid 1800s. These ruins are open to the public and we capture their beauty with as much respect as possible.

We will meet at 12:45pm and depart at 1pm. The departure location will be emailed to you. Parking at this location will be limited, so we will encourage you to carpool with other attendees. The trip will take less than 30 minutes. Once we arrive we will be in the same location for the duration of the session. Once the session is complete, you will be led back to our starting point. Everyone will have the opportunity if they wish to capture images in Infrared. Please bring an SD card if you want to try out Infrared Photography.
