I live in Wildwood, Missouri with my 2 sons and 4 cats. I have photographed hundreds of weddings all over Missouri! My job has also brought me to places such as California, Oregon, Chicago, and Florida. Destination wedding photography is something I plan to do more of once my kids get older. 

Random interests of mine include: yoga, hiking, astrology, the ocean, indie rock music, summertime, teen angst movies, anything involving space/moon/stars, terrible reality tv, and coffee.. always coffee.

Let's get the ball rolling...

More About me

Not to brag - but photography is both my job and my passion - and I feel very lucky for that. I started my company 17 years ago after graduating from Webster University. I fell in love with wedding photography once I realized that the pictures don't have to be boring and traditional! I was able to combine photojournalism with fine art to create images that my clients are proud to share. Many of my brides and grooms continue to use me year after year for family/newborn/maternity photos!

and I have the best job ever

I'm cindy

I lost my mother when I was 24, I gave birth to my first son when I was 25, and then I lost my father when I was 26. At this time I was just getting started with my photography business and while I loved what I did, I don't think I understood the true importance of my job. After these losses, and becoming a mother, my perspective changed. I feel a huge responsibility to document events fully, noticing every proud smile, every loving hand hold, every tear that is shed. Weddings are filled with drama, emotion, joy, and even sadness. It is my job to look beyond the "normal" shots and create a collection of images that bring comfort. This is the happiest time of your life and aside from memories, photographs are all that is left to remember it. I photograph every wedding, every family session, as if it were my own.

it means to much 
to me

i am a storyteller


When I'm not working I stay quite busy with my sons. They are my best friends and my world pretty much revolves around them. Playing baseball, going to arcades, watching movies, traveling, and cuddling with our cats are just a few ways we spend our time.

Being a mom to my boys Jack and Nico

my most important job..

The best thing that came out of covid, for me, was developing a daily yoga habit. I love staying active but hate traditional exercise. Yoga is perfect for my lifestyle and my personality! I transformed half my bedroom into a yoga studio so I do it all from home! 

Yoga, great for my physical and mental health

my other passion..

My college - Webster University - has a campus in Thailand and I jumped at the opportunity to study there. During this time I was deeply focused on photojournalism and I learned the art of "being a fly on the wall" as I photographed the coup d'etat in Bangkok, Loy Krathong in Ayutthaya, an art festival in Chiang Mai, among many other events. I value everything about my experience there!

Studying abroad in Thailand for a semester

a most memorable experience..

Tower Grove Park and Carondelet Park are some of my St Louis favorites. My all time favorite place I've shot was in Cannon Beach, Oregon for an elopement/family vacation. It is truly magical there.

Anywhere with tall trees and a beautiful sunset

my favorite photo location spot..

Obviously, I couldn't stop at just one. Moon, Coco, Angel, and Leo are the sweetest creatures who make my kids and I smile every day. You will probably see them featured often in my instagram stories.

I am a crazy cat lady

not embarrassed to admit..
