More wedding info please!!
I can’t wait to become friends so that I can hype you up, make you feel confident, and perfectly capture your personality.
But really, back to the point here, I believe that your story is worth celebrating and that sacrificial love is inspiring. My heart for my business is to glorify God, using my gifts of connection and artistry to help people see themselves as they truly are — brilliant — and commemorate the start of life as man + wife!! I’m inspired by thoughtful details, genuine relationships, and deep love.
I’m Lainie, and I’m so happy to meet you!! I’m a wedding photographer based in St. Louis with a passion for celebrating joyful couples that are simply stoked for their marriage, AND want to have a fun celebration to kick it off in style!! I’m a pro at turning strangers into fast friends, getting a rogue wedding timeline back on track (so you have more time to soak up the party), and breaking it down on the dance floor.
I’ve been there, that stressed-out feeling is no fun at all. You might be wondering if it’s possible to not just hire any old photographer for an event, but gain a friend whose heart is to serve, love, and celebrate you throughout this season of preparation and help create tangible memories that will be passed down for generations to come…
I run on sunshine + iced oat milk vanilla lattes, ideally from a local coffee shop with fast wifi + a pretty patio space!!
I will 1000% cry happy tears through my viewfinder AT LEAST once during your big day (don’t worry, I won’t miss a beat)
My cutie husband, Chris, is my favorite person in the world!! His unrelenting love humbles and encourages me daily.
I've never met a stranger, nor a wedding dance floor that I didn't LOVE. I hope you are ready to dance your heart out!!

“I couldn't recommend Lainie more if I tried!! The moment I talked to her on the phone I knew she was going to be perfect. You could just tell she had a smile on her face the whole call. She makes you feel like you've been friends for years. She remembers all the little details + makes sure your vision comes true. She brought so much joy + laughter to our special day. Truly went above and beyond for us. No bride EVER wants to see rain on their day but if you saw the pictures Lainie captured, I'd ask for rain all over again. Seriously, book her + you have yourself a stress free wedding day!”
