"The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give you forever."

Welcome to MGE Photography! Thank you so much for "clicking by" to check us out. We offer a variety of photography services while specializing in the wedding photography field. We are based in St. Louis, however we travel all over the United States photographing weddings. Feel free to look around and send me a message if you have any questions. 

 

Fun Fact...

The ceremony is my favorite part of a wedding day. Since I consider myself to be more of a candid/documentary photographer, I love chasing those fleeting moments during the ceremony with my camera. I love the anticipation right before the kiss, and the look on the brides face while the groom says his vows. Check out our Ceremony Gallery here. 

 

Another time during the wedding that I love to let my fly on the wall documentarian style shine is during the reception. We combine candid and staged wedding shots during your reception. Trisha handles setting up "Grab 'n Grins" (group photos) while I look for artistic and unique moments to photograph. We suggest a minimum of 2 hours of coverage during your reception, however the more the better. Most people do not "loosen up" until about 1-2 hours before the reception is over. Check out our Reception Gallery here. 

 

No wedding is complete without some gorgeous wedding portraits. Thats where we will come in to play. Our portrait style is artistic, romantic, and traditional. We like to combine the environment and our couple for some truly unique shots. We request a minimum of 1 hour to photograph portraits of the couple and their wedding party. For family and wedding party formals, you can expect 5-10 minutes of time to set up per group photo. Check out our wedding portraits here.
