I was overwhelmed at the initial stages of searching for a wedding photographer.

We did our engagement shots with him as well, my hubby and I live in Florida so we flew up just to do our engagement shots with Aaron. Totally worth it! The photos were amazing. Despite living in Florida we did have our wedding in Missouri. Aaron was awesome about answering emails every time I had a question, which was quite often. Despite changing things a dozen times he totally went with the flow and was right there when we needed him on the wedding day. His pictures are amazing. Even the details he puts in when he sends the CDs with the picture files on them is amazing. I couldn't have had a better photographer. If you're looking for an amazing photographer who also happen s to be one of the coolest people you've ever met then Aaron is your guy. If you can book him do it. In fact, I wouldn't even pick your wedding date until you're sure that he's available. Thank you Aaron.

In fact we ended up liking Aaron and his way with taking photos so much that we asked him to travel to our wedding in St. Louis. Aaron was so responsive to any emails that he was sent. He followed up with us before the wedding just to confirm he had everything correct for timing and location. We spent about 30 minutes on the phone with him going through the timeline of the day. Leading up to the big day a bride can get pretty nervous! Out of all of our vendors, Aaron was the one who never even crossed my mind to worry about! I had the highest level of confidence in him. He didn’t disappoint. Aaron had such a way with making everyone laugh and feel comfortable during photos. It was extremely hot during our outdoor wedding in June. He was able to take the photos and keep everyone comfortable and smiling at the same time. He captured so many beautiful photos. I couldn’t have even imagined how many beautiful shots he would get! We received so many compliments on how great our photos are as well as Aaron’s personality! Everyone was talking about how great he was, and how funny his jokes are! We received our photos super quickly! We will continue to use Aaron as our photographer for our future photos!
