St. Louis Wedding Photographer

"We really appreciated how personal Kelly's whole process was–she really took the time to get to know us and made everything so easy to manage."

You aren't planning this bomb-ass wedding just to spend your entire day posing and fake smiling for photos and getting bossed around by some stranger with a camera, right? You'd much rather actually experience your wedding day, spend time with your guests,  and have photographic evidence of how absolutely amazing it was!

You want your photos to bring you right back to your wedding day so you can relive every emotion: every butterfly in your stomach from seeing each other for the first time, every happy tear you shed as you exchange vows, every laugh-so-hard-you-almost-pee moment watching your guests let loose on the dance floor, and every moment where you felt so full of love and happiness because you get to spend your life with your favorite person ever. All of that.

Those are the moments that make up your story, and those are the moments I'll help you hold onto and enjoy forever!

You focus on saying your vows and partying your asses off, I'll document your entire day so you can relive the best day ever over and over again
(and you'll look damn good, too)!

It's your wedding day–enjoy it!

"Booking Kelly was definitely one of the best choices we made for our wedding."

-Megan & Colleen

Kelly Cook
Wedding Photographer in
St. Louis

I'm a storyteller at heart, which is why my work is all about you and capturing you being yourself! I married my husband Cody in 2014, and I've been in your shoes trying to plan a fun, unique wedding that fits your style instead of following trends and traditions.

I'm not going to be a fly on the wall at your wedding...I mean, I have pink hair...but I will be hanging back to watch your story unfold rather than manufacturing moments. And then I'll be right in the middle of the dance floor snapping away in between my terrible dance moves.

I'm here to not only help you look amazing in your photos but also to make sure your experience is as fun and pain-free as possible!
