Candid & Documentary Wedding Photographers in Missouri

We are down to earth folks. We aren’t going to ask you what your wedding “colors” are or the style of your bridesmaid dresses. We want to know what is most important to you on the wedding day, and how we can best capture those moments for you. Every wedding is unique, and photos are one of the few things that will remain after the last song is played at your reception. We want you to re-live the day again and again through the images we create.

We always love to document the gorgeous details that couples put so much work into before the big day, but the look on your mother’s face when your maid of honor tells that story from your college days is a moment that you will talk about for the next 50 years. We make sure you have a photo of that moment.

Long before the wedding day, we talk with our couples about what moments are most important to them, and how we can best capture those moments. We always try to capture lovely candid photos of the wedding guests, but we also know that your cousin’s new girlfriend might not be as high on the list as your great grandmother!

After photographing more than 150 weddings, we bring our expertise of composition, use of natural light, and skill at capturing candid moments to your day, but we always welcome collaboration with you to create a unique body of images that represent who you are as a couple and what your wedding day truly looked like.

Meet Katie

Katie is known by her friends as the eternal optimist. She can sometimes be found having a solo dance party in the car while stopped at a light. Katie has lived in eight cities, but would rather be stranded in the middle of a forest than surrounded by buildings. 

Katie has an undergraduate degree in Fisheries and Wildlife, and her masters's degree in Photojournalism. She plays the piano, throws pottery, and once in a while dusts off her sewing machine to attempt a pair of mittens.

Mama to two adventurous boys, and life partner of someone who makes her laugh every single day.

Meet Max

Max is a music history enthusiast, and in his spare time he can be found buying and selling vintage t-shirts. He would rather spend money on an amazing dinner than a fancy car, and he can tie a bow tie with his eyes closed.

Max has been shooting pictures since he could hold a camera, and was named Student Photographer of the Year by the NPPA.

On a Sunday afternoon, Max can be found simultaneously making an espresso for Katie, prepping dinner, and wrestling two kiddos!
