Our goal is the capture that uniqueness of your wedding with our blended shooting style
and enhance your images to create “true art”.
We focus on capturing real emotion and personality – because isn’t that what
everyone wants in their wedding pictures? Photojournalism isn’t just a buzz word for us – our background in journalism instilled a
philosophy in us that we should capture moments – real moments – as they unfold.
But wait. There’s more! We know that gorgeous images take some time and some framing. Notice we didn’t say posing.
This is not your traditional photography studio. We want to see YOU! So we let you play with your friends and
focus on the love of your life. It’s easy and lots of fun.
PLUS it leads to amazing wedding pictures that we take to the next level. These are our signature bold images. It’s the texturing, the feel, the look – whatever you want to call it – it’s what we do. It’s real life; it’s a unique vision ­­— it’s true art. Read less

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
We approach each event with fresh eyes and our post processing is just the same. Every shoot gets it's own unique look that enhances the emotion and quality of the image. Oh, and hand-coloring makes me puke a little in my mouth. Sorry, no b&w with the bouquet in color here.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Everything. You hire a photographer so you don't have to worry about things like lighting. Just let us handle it.
Is your media preference film or digital?
99% of what we do is digital, that way we don't have to limit what we do. We do have quite an affinity for vintage though so we tend to tote around several film and Polaroid cameras just for the fun of it.
How many photographers do you work with?
It's just us... Aaron & Heather. We like it that way.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
I've shot with a 102 degree fever and Heather within hours of vomiting, we'll be there. Just in case we have an awesome network of photographers that can pop in at a moments notice.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never in a day. We'll only shoot a max of 2 weddings per weekend per city.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
This is another thing you hire a professional so you don't have to worry about it. We bring everything we could possibly need.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Of course.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Why complicate things? We're there as long as we need to be.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
See above.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We don't structure things like this. We take appropriate breaks and appropriate times.
Do you charge for travel?
Only outside of the Kansas City or St Louis Metro areas.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Our online proofs are generally up withing 2-4 weeks.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Online and a hard cover thumbnail proof book are the most common options. You get to choose.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Forever, they're yours.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes, but we provide a copyright release as a purchase option.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes, we reserve the right to publish anything we capture.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
They're available for purchase.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes.
What kind of albums do you offer?
All kinds and we are always adding more. Just ask to see them.
When will the client get the final album?
It depends on the design and album type.

We stumbled upon Hawes Photography at a bridal show amidst a seemingly endless number of photographers. What set them apart? They showcased natural, non-posed, creative photos that look more like true art than your typical wedding photography. They also showcased a 3D photo technique as well as stop motion shooting, Polaroids, and other creative photography options. We immediately were drawn to their vision, creativity, and talent and they were hands down our top choice for photographer.

Heather and Aaron are a married duo who are professional, down to earth, and know their stuff. Once booked, I had no worries because I knew we were in very capable hands. We started with a meeting and booked (they also have the paperwork part down! ). We did our engagement photos, which is included in the base package, and followed their lead for a spot (our only request, outdoors). They led us to an amazing, little known place that was stellar. They interfere relatively little when taking photos -- it's mostly just act natural with some gentle guidance/prompting from them occasionally and moving around. It felt natural and fun, more like hanging out with friends than a stuffy photo session.

When we saw the photos, we were stunned. They have a way of capturing and expressing the space/us that can only be described as a marriage between skill and creativity -- true art. We loved them and they made us even MORE excited for our wedding day photography!

Heather was in communication with us before the wedding, planning and organizing our photography for the day. She helped us with our timeline and flow for the day, being flexible but also sharing her ideas of what will work. Come wedding day, they were there for the full day with some guiding/prompting but overall non-invasive. They kept us on the schedule and made sure we had everything we wanted. They were fantastic and we couldn't recommend them more! Besides getting married, they were my favorite part of our wedding!

We could not be happier with our choice to have Hawe's Photography as our photographers!! Aaron and Heather shot our engagement photos, rehearsal dinner and the wedding. They were so easy to work with, had great ideas and captured wonderful photographs in a nautral way..not the boring 'posed' photos that are a dime a dozen. They have a creative spin on the entire experience. Their work is by far the best of any photographer we looked at when trying to find a photographer. We look forward to working them them in the future as well!!!

So here's the thing to remember: Aaron and Heather are lovely people. It's not something you forget over the course of working with them. It's easy to overlook the people behind the varied services employed when you're getting all of your details nailed down. They're good folk.

They spent 12 hours in our company on the day of, and plenty of time before in the engagement session and multiple conversations. Not that they were oppressively present by any means, as they are lovely people. These first steps are worth every bit of time and money; they gleaned a sense of who we are, what we wanted, and what they could do.

I'm of the opinion that wedding pictures shouldn't be static poses. I understand that they're important for posterity and grandma, but I know I didn't want my day to be, or be remembered, as a formality. We chose Heather and Aaron because they understood this.

This isn't the forum for extolling the virtues of supporting young artists or listing the manifold cultural, social, and municipal benefits that result, so let me say that work they did is framed on our wall not only because of our memories of the day, but for its aesthetic qualities. Our jealous friends that relied on their Photo-Hobbyist Uncle Bob aren't upset with their pictures by any means, but they definitely recognize a marked difference in quality.

And also, it's good to have lovely people around.

Our experience with the Hawes was simply fantastic. At every step, their work captured the essence of our relationship, our emotions and our excitement....while reflecting our personal style. And we are left with beautiful memories that stimulate "oohs and aaahs" from everyone who browses through our wedding book. If you are looking for someone to reflect your style, in a unique and sophisticated manner, you can't go wrong with this charming and delightful couple.

Hawes Photography and Design impressed us from the moment we very first sat down with them. Their creative vision is present in every image. They were extremely easy to work with and take every step with a great deal of stride. There is not a situation they cannot handle. Their presentation of the final product shows acute attention to style and respect for the special occasion. There are no half-measures or short cuts with their design. Everything was absolutely gorgeous. Without any doubts, we would recommend Heather and Aaron to any couple. We cannot wait to work with them again for other important life events.

My husband and I decided that the photography for our wedding was too important to compromise on the quality. So we went with Hawes Photography and we were blown away! Family and friends are still commenting on how amazing the pictures are and its been three months since our wedding.
Aaron and Heather were so easy to work with and they really put us at ease. The photographs of the ceremony truly captured the emotion of the day and the photographs afterward were so relaxed and captured our personalities. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for laid back photographers who really know their stuff.

What can I say? Hawes was absolutely fantastic. Not only were the pictures absolutely phenomenal, but Aaron and Heather were there helping us along. I couldn't possibly be happier with our pictures.

I had a cousin get married the week after I did... I'm not ashamed to say I took glee in hour much better our pictures turned out.

Tip: Save yourself the trouble and book with Aaron. You'll love yourself for it 5 years from now.

Aaron and Heather are exceptional and we have nothing but positive things to say. Not only are they wonderful to work with and fun to be around, their talent is above and beyond anything we expected. We had the pleasure of taking them with us to Mexico for our destination wedding. From the moment they arrived at the resort they were "on" and the creativity began to shine. The day of the wedding was amazing and they were both their to capture every moment. Their dedication showed when Heather showed up not feeling well; she was such a trooper and never missed a beat. I appreciate her begin there throughout the process of getting ready and never missing a moment. Our Ceremony, photos after the wedding, and our trash the dress session the next day are all stunning. We also had them at our at home reception in Kansas City, and again they were nothing but out of this world amazing. Both are professional and very easy to work with. Throughout our long journey with them we have grown to appreciate their style, technique, and uniqueness. They are not going to take photos that look like your prom pictures; they capture the moments that are about you. Aaron and Heather are not your run of the mill photographers. They don't just take pictures they create art.

We booked Aaron and Heather from California for our St. Louis wedding. We loved their style, and after one phone conversation with them, we knew they would be perfect for us. They were super friendly and funny and were genuinely interested in getting a feel for our personalities and the kind of wedding we wanted. Heather even emailed me to see how the cross-country wedding planning was going. When we finally met them on our wedding day, we were so glad we'd picked Hawes Photography. I'm not usually super comfortable with having my picture taken, but somehow they made me feel relaxed. Elliott and I really enjoyed our pre-ceremony photo shoot, and every loves the images they captured of us and of the entire day. We could not be happier, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them, especially if you're looking for a unique perspective to capture your wedding.

Wow! This was by far our favorite vendor that we worked with for our wedding. They were the first vendor we booked, and the best. My husband was a bit nervous about their prices when we first booked them, but by the time the wedding was over, he was telling everyone they were his favorite vendor. They were worth every penny we spent.

They were always very flexible with us and very efficient in their communication. Their helpfulness in general wedding matters was very much appreciated, too. They helped us plan out our timeline for the reception, they shuttled us to our photo location when our limousine broke down, and Heather even showed me how to cut my cake when I looked up at her with a confused look in my eyes. We've been joking about them truly being a "full service photographer."

We have not yet received our final images from them since the wedding was only 3 weeks ago, but we are 100% confident that they will be mind-blowing. We would highly recommend Hawes Photography to anyone (and keep in mind that they also do boudoir sessions and other specialty photo shoots...I couldn't afford it before the wedding, but will definitely think about it for our anniversary).

I had 3 months to plan my wedding (January 13th) and we wanted a "Financial Peace" budget that ensured we stay debt free after our celebration. Needless to say I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to get a photographer. When I met with Aaron and his wife, they felt like people I'd want to have over for dinner, and that's what made me look at what they could offer. I knew I'd be comfortable having them in my circle on the special day, so then I took a risk looking at the cost. The Hawes were right up front with the pricing, and the value blew me away. Turned out they were the least expensive in town, and the photos on their site were the combination of traditional and journalistic photography that I wanted.
There was no pressure to purchase what I couldn't afford! Hallelujah! It's been 9 months since the wedding and I still go back and peak at all of the pictures because I LOVE looking at them! P.S. My husband is camera shy and never turns out photogenic, but somehow, Aaron caught only his best sides and they're all frame-able! Thank you!

Aaron and Heather Hawes grabbed my attention the minute I saw their work--unique, personal, vintagesque, not cheesy. When we met, they just felt "right" and they weren't pushy at all like some wedding vendors. Their AMAZING work is priced as so; every penny is deserved but it still may be a stretch for some brides on a super-budget. Definitely worth the investment, and our families would agree! So glad we made a couple of friends out of it too. Thanks guys! ~ Mr. & Mrs. Slaughter

I am a makeup artist that specializes in wedding makeup and I have worked with a lot of photographers over the last 6yrs. My husband and I knew that we did not want the typical posed pictures. We were looking for our pictures to tell a story of our magical day. Not only did they succeed in doing that but each and every picture is truely its own work of art we will treasure for the rest of our lives. We had a blast working with Aaron and Heather and can't wait to have them continue to help capture the stories in future chapters of our lives. The quality of their work and artistic detail to every shot exceeded all off our expectations.

Aaron and Heather were amazing from the moment we met them. They really focused on who we were and were very artistic. For both the engagement pictures and wedding pictures they were flexible, professional, and fun. I let them be as creative as possible which even led me into an old castle with no floors in my dress (Yes before the ceremony!). They made us feel very comfortable and the end result was incredible. I highly suggest looking into Hawes Photography for any photography need.

Working with Aaron and Heather was awesome. Before our photos shoots they were really helpful, answering questions we had not just about how the photography was going to work but general wedding advice as well.

The days of the shoots, they were fun to work with, made us feel comfortable and made us laugh. Our wedding was rather offbeat, and they ran with it, which was super important, so we felt lucky to have found them.

Sometimes they were a little slow in responding to emails--they are very busy--but always answered everything.

The packages are expensive, but we have no regrets about paying what we did--it was worth it!

My Advice: Inform any photographer of certain pictures that you are wanting, including the small details (even if you think that they will take anyway.) My wedding pictures are so different than everyone else that I know of that has gotten married....exactly what I wanted! They are so much fun to work with, & they are patient (especially if you have ADD:-), which can make all the difference in the world! They are worth every penny!

Aaron and Heather were exactly what we wanted for our wedding. We really wanted to get away from the traditional wedding pics that basically consisted of awkward, pose-and-shoot pictures. We wanted the pictures to be much more "by the moment" in style. Aaron and Heather captured every moment with an editorial flair. The pictures were amazing!!!
