Image of Jesse the PhotographerPreviously I had spent approximately 20 years taking travel photography in many locations around the world from Antarctica and New Zealand to Europe and the the United States. I later worked for several years as a staff photographer for the Navy.

We are based in the St. Louis Metro Westplex area and have our office in O'Fallon , Missouri where my wife and I started our photography business in 2004.

Our Senior and Portraiture service is focused on providing fun memorable on-location photo services. When a photograph is taken in a memorable location whether it is your home or favorite hangout it can mean so much more and bring back fond memories.

Our wedding service is centered on helping new couples stay comfortable, calm and confident during the madness of their wedding day. We like to remind couples that this is their day and we are there to help them remember the joy and fun.

I have spent considerable time building my photographic ability through consistent training and keeping up with the latest trends.
My experience does not stop with photography; I have trained and worked since the mid 90's with Graphic Design and Digital Production.
