Serving joyful couples in St. Louis, Missouri!
See our work!
1. My favorite part of the day is getting pre-bedtime butterfly kisses from our daughter Allie.
2. Dead by Daylight is my favorite game, though I do have a secret love for getting abused in Bloodborne.
3. My favorite hobby is building computers, from liquid cooling to over clocking, I love working with hardware, but making my wife and kids laugh is a close second.
1. My favorite midnight snack is cookies 'n cream ice-cream! PS: it tastes better when Zack scoops it!
2. The Office is better than Parks and Rec, don't even try to argue with me.
3. Judah and the Lion is my all time favorite band! We go see them in concert every year (except 2020, thanks COVID).
We are creative photographers for the joyful and madly in love!
We met in 2010, only Sophomores in high school with no idea what love truly was. We spent our teen years working together at a local restaurant, attending school dances, and dreaming about what our futures might hold. In 2013 we finally graduated high school; we quickly moved in together, and shortly after Bethany became pregnant with our first child. In 2014 we had a beautiful baby girl who was, and still is, a constant source of inspiration. Without her, I'm sure we never would have even purchased our first DSLR. Over the past six years we've learned a lot about parenthood, a lot about what love really means, and stumbled upon a shared passion: photography. We didn't start taking photos because we wanted to make a career as photographers, we started taking photos because we wanted to document the love our family has for each other. As the years went by we started to document that same love for other people, and we found an immense joy in providing such a heartfelt service. Now we have the pleasure of meeting new families and couples weekly to share in their love stories. If you had told me at 16 that I would get to photograph joyful sessions with my bestfriend by my side I would have thought you were crazy, but life is full of surprises and how amazing is that?
Our philosophy is simple; we believe photos should be fun, authentic, and timeless!
We offer engagement and custom photo session collections starting at $500! These sessions are 1.5-2 hours long and include
We offer three customizable wedding collections to best suit your needs! All of our collections include a dinner date (on us of course!) so that we can get to know each other better! We strive to build genuine connections with each of our couples, and hope that at the end of our journey together we feel more like friends than vendors! We also include a complimentary engagement session so that you can see the way we work together and get a feel for our posing style, plus it's a great excuse to get dressed up and love on your honey for an evening!
If you’re here, you’re in the midst of wedding planning and searching for the perfect photographers to capture your big day. Let me tell you, your search should be over, RIGHT NOW! Obviously their work is amazing, but this pair is so much more! After some 2020 wedding planning curveballs, we found a huge blessing in Bethany & Zack! They were so fun, easy-going, and genuinely cared about us and capturing all of the love on our day. I really just can’t say enough good things about these two!! I’ve said it again and again, but we were so incredibly lucky that they were available, our day wouldn’t have been the same without them! We would choose them again and again in a heartbeat!!
We couldn’t have possibly asked for better photographers when it came to our wedding day! Bethany and Zack go above and beyond to make sure your special day is everything you want it to be; they are two of the most talented individuals I have ever met and our wedding photos were exactly what we were looking for!
All I can say is BOOK THEM NOW! Bethany and Zack are the kindest people my husband and I have ever met AND they just happen to be some of the most fantastic photographers too! Our engagement and wedding photos are ones we will treasure forever. They captured our day perfectly and we plan on using them for every special occasion to come. They care about you and your story. You can’t go wrong by picking this beautiful couple to shoot the best day of your life!
Bethany and Zack were absolutely amazing to work with! We couldn't imagine more perfect people to capture our day. They got to know us as a couple before we even had our first photoshoot and I think that's what makes them stand out among other photographers. They both made us feel so comfortable, especially when our wedding day resulted in a heavy downpour. That didn't stop them from capturing the most special pictures, they even braved the rain for some of the most incredible memories of the night! There is no doubt in my mind that we made the right decision. Not only have we gained a photographer for life, but we also gained new friends in the process!
Bethany and Zack are amazing!!! Hands down the BEST vendor from our wedding! Not only did our pictures turn out exactly as promised (light, bright, colorful, airy, happy, etc) but the experience itself was fantastic and still continues to be! Bethany and Zack are so personable and sweet — from the “get to know you” dinner, to helping you decide on engagement photo locations, to making sure you eat on your big day, they do it all!! They genuinely care about your story and they want to capture it. They go above and beyond!
I had the pleasure of working with Bethany & Zack Photography for my wedding and to say they were amazing is an understatement! They were by far the easiest, most relaxed, and fun people; at times I forgot they were even there, yet they seemed to have been everywhere getting every shot possible! We were constantly laughing and joking together, which made us all relax and just be ourselves. When we got the photos back I was absolutely blown away! Not only were the pictures natural and beautiful, but they were filled with so much joy and love that I felt as if I was reliving the day! To this day I will scroll back through them and get so happy that we chose them!
Bethany and Zack were amazing!! They photographed my engagement and my wedding... and wow! the pictures are absolutely gorgeous! Lighting is definitely what they're good at and they captured some beautiful moments. As well as them being professional and outstanding photographers and videographers, they are very sweet, easy going, and loving people which is so nice to have around on the stress of a wedding day. We couldn't have picked better people to capture one of the most special days of our lives, thank you so much!
Love, Cheryl and James
