I’m Tracy, a St. Louis wedding photographer originally from Indiana but have lived in the St. Louis area for almost a decade now, and I am so happy to call this home. I met my husband in college and still remember the first moment I met him. My friend and future brother-in-law introduced me to him outside of my dorm room at Indiana State University. That friend married my twin sister, and I married the guy he introduced me to that day just a couple years down the road. We have been married for ELEVEN years and each year it gets sweeter and sweeter. I'm so thankful he's my lobster (F•R•I•E•N•D•S reference).
In my first year of marriage, my sweet mom-in-law gave me my first real camera. I remember holding it at the time and looking at all the buttons and wondering if I would ever be able to figure out what they actually do. A few years later, she gifted me a professional camera that jump-started my career in photography. I believe this was one of those serendipitous moments in life that was meant to fill an ache that my heart had been creatively longing for. I haven't been able to put my camera down since. I've always been drawn to stories, hearing how people met, or how he proposed, and I secretly hope that "meet-cutes" actually happen and can't wait to hear my first story of one! I love capturing soft colorful tones but am constantly drawn to the timelessness of a black-and-white portrait. Nothing makes time stand still the way black-and-white does. I believe in photographs because other than memory, it's the only way to relive these little moments of our lives over and over again. I am so honored to document these magical moments of your story, and I am so grateful you are here!

Learn About the wedding Experience
If I'm not photographing a wedding day, I am at home snuggling with my two little boys, husband, and our goldendoodle, Winnie. I love the outdoors and exploring new corners or secret gardens around our town. I visit an antique store at least once a week hunting for treasures for our home. I've never had a glass of wine I didn't like. I believe life is precious, and I try to make the most of even the little moments.
I believe in extraordinary love between two people that creates strong and lasting marriages. I believe in timeless, elegant, and classic. I love classically-styled couples, black-and-white tie affairs, passed-down heirlooms, and effortless romance.
Tracy is extremely talented and has a great eye for what will look good in photos. She also makes your photo shoot such a fun experience! My husband and I laughed a ton during our shoot! She also got our photos back to us so quickly and they are absolutely gorgeous!
