I have photographed over 100 weddings as the lead photographer and more as a 2nd photographer.

After all the weddings I have done, this is what I know about wedding photography:
I love weddings. Everything about the day is a rush. I love how everyone looks beautiful and how everyone is happy. I love the technical challenges that I will face. I love that I am documenting an incredible ritual of love and devotion. I love the planing and the realization that I am being entrusted with such an important task and that there are no "do-overs." Weddings are incredibly complicated. Your wedding photographer will be the hardest working vendor on the day. And unlike other vendors, we start work months before the day and continue weeks after it's over. It takes years and hundreds of hours of actual photography (not a wedding class) to master all the incredibly challenging situations that will happen on the day- and to deal with them as though nothing is wrong. We have worked hard to become really good at this profession and feel honored to be part of so many amazing weddings.
My studio specializes in weddings and we would be thrilled to be your wedding photographer.

Give us a call and we can meet over drinks ( I am buying !) to talk about your wedding day plans.

Rez did our engagement pictures and he was amazing! We are getting married in Mexico and if we could take him we would! Rez was so responsive to our requests and really fun to work with. We actually did not want the session to end it was so enjoyable and it was a hut humid evening in St Louis.
We loved the pictures we got from him. They really captured our personalities and how we feel about each other.
Thank you Rez!

Book him! from start to finish he will go over and above. We heard so many horror stories from friends who booked photographers who sounded legit during meetings and had great pictures in their portfolios and then they turned out to be duds!
Well I can tell you Rez is the real deal. He is a total professional, loves what he does, worked his butt of during the whole day and then even had time to party with us a little at the end of the reception.
What really blew us away was that he was able to put together slide show of our pictures which he showed to us and our guests at the reception! All our guests thought he was Superman!
He is the best and I am so blessed to have found him.

Book Shari Photography. No questions the best choice. We had a small wedding and reception- a step above a court house wedding in size and locations. Re was really great through the whole wedding. We needed him for 3 hours and he stayed over to make sure he got everything when there was a time problem that was not anyone's fault. The pictures were amazing and just what we wanted. Very easy to work with, really passionate about his job, and was really aware of our needs from the very start. Outstanding!

I am so glad we booked Rez. Finding the right photographer is never easy- so many good ones in St Louis and so many come across as friendly and want to cozy up for the booking. I liked Rez because he had a really cool look about him- sort of like I am your photographer you don't need to look anymore- but all without trying. We both knew instantly we wanted him to spend the day. And remember, that is what you are doing. You are hiring a person to spend 8-12 hours with you. I knew that if something went wrong he would fix it- I just had such confidence in him and he did it all without trying. Too many other Photographers were like lapdogs agreeing with everything we said and just so hungry to get our wedding. I remember I asked Rez that we wanted a sunset shot and he told us that would not be possible based on the current timeframe because sunset was going to happen after we had arrived at the reception. No other photographer had even considered the sunset time- they were alike oh sure we can do that. I loved that about Rez- the fact that he was not promising something he couldn't deliver on. As it happened he did get our sunset picture because he had scouted a location next tot he reception and pulled us out for 5 mins to get it. Book this guy because he is amazing! And oh yeah- our pictures were breathtaking - just beautiful. I also liked how instead of packages we told him what we wanted an he then sent us an itemized estimate which we were able to tweak. I hated how other photographers just gave us these packages with all this stuff we didn't want. This was a lot better. Thank you Rez

We booked Rez for our wedding and have no regrets about the decision. We met with many other photographers who were all very talented. Rez stood out mostly because he was so together in the organization and planning part of the wedding. He gave us so many pointers and tips and our consultation meeting that it may be what we had to do so much easier. On the day he was fantastic. He went above and beyond every aspect of the wedding day. He worked tirelessly to make sure everything went smoothly. I Could not have been more pleased with what he did .

We booked Rez to do our wedding in Stillwater Oklahoma mostly because of 2 reasons- he comes highly rated and bc of his work as a horse photographer. Both my husband and I own horses- our horses were going to play a big part of our wedding. The whole wedding party would be on horses. Even our service was on horseback. My dad and I riodr in with the wedding party as well. It was really important that we had a photographer who was comfortable around the horses and knew what he is doing around the animals. rez did not disappoint as he worked so hard to keep all our ideas workable. He was so patient and was wonderful to work with. And of coarse the pictures turned out great. They are absolutely breathtaking. I can't thank Rez enough-

We booked Rez for our wedding in Tulsa Oklahoma based on what a good friend had to say about him. He was very easy to communicate with - with emailed a lot and skyped a few times. I didn't actually meet him until the wedding rehearsal but I felt like knew him bc of all the emails. He was a great choice - he worked so hard and made everyone feel so comfortable. i could tell he was very much at ease as a photographer, never got flustered, and just did an amazing job. Our pictures were exactly what I wanted and could not have been happier. We are now working on our album and he is really helpful with that. Thank you Rez

Rez was recommended to us by a friend- he was the best choice we made for our day. You cannot go wrong with him. We was available for all our questions and made really helpful suggestions- like when I should have my hair and makeup done and giving makeup advice on the day that was spot on! He suggested more around my eyes to make them pop more and he was so right! All day he worked tirelessly. The pictures were exactly as I wanted- so creative and beautiful. I can totally recommend him.

What a fantastic experience we had with Rez as our photographer. We had a small wedding and he was so responsive to our ideas and considerate. This was our 2nd wedding each so we didn't want anything big- just a short service and dinner with family and friends. The pictures were important to us- we wanted lots of us and of outer family and kids. Rez did not disappoint with his energy and creativity. He even remembered what wine we liked and brought a bottle for us. We received the picture today and they are wonderful. He really captured the our personalities and the glory of our wedding. And so fast too though I suspect because it was a short wedding and very early in the year he had time to get it done in a very timely manner. We could not have been more thrilled with our choice. .

Wow! That's all I can say. Fantastic service, incredible pictures, and just an all around terrific experience. Rez and Jayson are an awesome team. I can't believe how hard they worked on the day. They never seemed to stop working. And the pictures arrived on time. Some of my girlfriends who got married before me didn't get their pictures until a year after their wedding! And I love our pictures - all of them- and so many - are beautiful. Thank you!
