Weddings by MDKauffmann Photography
Weddings were really the first commissions I took on in my own name. Like countless other photographers, my first one was for free for friends because I had a fancy camera. I did it and handed them the film. I'm not too proud to admit it sucked...but they slowly got better. After 20 years of photographing weddings, I'm one of the leaders in my industry. I currently photograph approximately 20 weddings per year and enjoy a comfortably full calendar. I've honed the practice to perfection and am ready to make your wedding day memorable.
What makes me special?
So this brings me to "why me?" I do it because I know I can do it better than other wedding photographers. I work harder, deliver more, and have more fun doing it than others. How do I make that happen? It starts with planning. Over time I've developed a way of making plan to make your St. Louis wedding day go as smoothly as possible. I work to minimize the time I'm distracting you from more important things like celebrating with your friends and family. We work together from the outset so I understand your priorities for the wedding day, and learn your personality so that I can most effectively interact with you and coach the most natural poses and expressions.
My relationship with you makes your day better.
As we get to know each other, some of the first conversations we will be about how it ends. We will talk about your vision for wall art, and albums, and gifts, and digital sharing. From those notes, I'll put together a plan to create those images that will best fit into those situations. We'll talk about which walls you'll fill, and what will look good in those places. We'll talk about your album, and what you'd like to see in it. I'll get to know you as a person - not just another weekend project.
