How do you create nostalgia? We like to think that each moment on your wedding day holds a memory, some you're not even aware of. How is that possible? You will be so busy with everything on your wedding day there will be moments you will miss. We will be sure to capture them. We will also be sure to make time for you and your partner so we can create something nostalgic for just you two.

There is sure to be a ton of romance on your wedding day. We want to be sure to photograph it. Romance between you and your partner will happen organically, but we like to bring you two out alone on your wedding day so you have a moment to express your romance without being under the spot light. That will allow us to capture some amazing wedding photography of you.

OMG!!!! These are incredible. We are so excited. This is exactly what I had envisioned and you were amazing that night. We were (at least I was) a bit nervous going into these, thinking that we’d struggle to capture raw emotions and not forced looking photos, but these are very raw thanks to you helping us feel comfortable. We cannot wait for our wedding day and are very happy we chose you as our wedding photographer!

I’m so happy McKinley was available to take pictures for my wedding. He was amazing! Let me say, he really went above and beyond for my day. From taking pictures while we were getting ready, to having candid shots of all my guests, McKinley captured everything I wanted to remember out of my day. I was really impressed to learn he would stay for as long as you needed him. I don’t think I found another photographer who would do that! My pictures came back within 3 weeks of my wedding as well, and all of them were gorgeous. I hope to use him in the future!

McKinley was the best person I could have ever imagined to capture my big day! It started with the engagement photos, which were amazing. When it was time for the big day, I couldn't have asked for a better wedding photographer. All of the moments I asked for and wanted, and the ones I didn't even think about, he made sure to capture. I would recommend him to anyone!

Over the past few years as a St Louis wedding photographer

I have to admit it is no easy job being a St Louis wedding photographer, with our constant change in weather, you never know what is going to happen. But over the past few years shooting in the rain, sleet, and snow (that's right snow). I have had the privilege to work with some amazing couples, and I hope you will be next!
