Shooting from the heart is what wedding photography is all about: capturing the bond between bride and groom, the emotions of families and guests, and the special moments that make your wedding a day to remember.

Our talented photographers are among the best in the city. With roots in photojournalism, they now have a collective experience of almost 600 weddings. Their work has appeared in national and local publications.

While many photographers can capture a posed moment to technical perfection, it requires a special eye and timing to capture the image tells the story. Capturing the iconic image of your day, the one that you will look back on fondly for years to come, requires the photographer to wait for the truly memorable and decisive moment before tripping the shutter.

With Love and Life Photographs, you'll look at that image years from now and recall every thought and feeling as though you were there once again.

Tracey and Derek were amazing to work with from our first planning meeting through the very end of our night. We met and emailed several times to make sure everything we wanted in our photos would be captured. Tracey was willing and able to adapt to our crazy requests (Holi color engagement photos and bring our dog!) and made every session laid back and fun. Tracey and Derek came prepared to our big day and took plenty of shots for us to piece together our day. They were a pleasure to work with!

When Doug and I first met Tracy at Love and Life.. We know right away her energy and quirky personality was a perfect fit for us and our wedding day... We could not have been more right... We picked the hottest day in May to have our engagement photos taken.. and on the day of our wedding it was 140 degrees in St. Louis. Tracy stuck with us all day and into the night... Despite the sometimes unbearable heat...

Her LOVE for capturing the right moment is infectious... She was up for just about anything... listening to what we wanted to see and providing her twist to complete the vision... We cannot thank you enough for helping our special day one to always remember...

We worked with Derek for our wedding at the Missouri Botanical Gardens. My husband and I live in California so Derek was very flexible to meet with us over the phone and email. We were also visiting St Louis for a few days last year and he was able to slip us in for some engagement photos in the evening, which I'm so glad we did. During the wedding, Derek was _everywhere_. I never worried that he would miss an important moment because he was always two steps ahead of us. He's also very personable and our friends and family felt comfortable around him. We received our DVD with full digital rights promptly after the wedding and it comes in a nice protective case. There was also an unexpected video of our pictures with some dancing set to music. What a great surprise! Overall, we are very pleased and would highly recommend Love & Life Photography.

Derek definitely went above and beyond my expectations. From our first meeting to the engagement and wedding sessions he was energetic, easy to talk to, and genuinely interested in what we wanted in our photography. I am a recent design grad and was afraid that my specific requests might be overwhelming, but Derek paid close attention to include each idea.

Beyond the outstanding photography quality, the photographer helped our ceremony to move along smoothly from start to finish. He was always on time, and took the time to drive 30 min from St. Louis just to scope out engagement picture locations in our small town!

Thanks Derek, keep up the excellent work!!
