Choosing Tracy as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Tracey and John from Love and Life Photography. She did the most incredible job on our wedding photos. Multiple people told me our photos look like they belong on the cover of a bridal magazine, and there is not a greater complement than that when it comes to wedding photos. She captured everything I wanted, and the pictures turned out so much better than I could have imagined. She also did a beautiful job on our engagement pictures, and created wonderful save the date cards for us. I would 100% recommend Love and Life photography to everyone. Tracey will be our photographer for life!
My husband and I went over budget on photography and as financially savvy as we strive to be, we knew it was 100% worth it!. Tracey is such a wonderful person and her photos are all breathtakingly beautiful. Tracey was so easy to work with and an absolute joy to get to know. She truly has an incredible talent and we are so honored that she captured our day. My mom and bridesmaids have reached out to me since the wedding to tell me how much they loved working with Tracey and how much they love all the photos. Pro tip: make sure you have a hot cup of coffee waiting for her day of! :)
Tracey and Sophie were amazing. So much fun to work with and they both had such a great eye. We love our engagement and wedding photos!
Love and Life Photography did an awesome job on both our wedding and engagement photos! We can't wait to see the rest of our wedding photos. Tracey was the wedding photographer for FOUR other members of my family! She always captures beautiful moments. Love and Life delivers exceptional work!
We met with Tracey in January of 2016 for our October 2017 wedding, and she was amazing from start to finish. Her attention to detail and creative nature took our pictures to the next level. She helped make our engagement pictures and wedding day happier and more relaxing because I knew she and John had it all under control. We were a little pressed for time between ceremony and reception for pictures of me and my groom (solely our fault for not giving her enough time) and she pulled through in an epic way. I'm not always the best at being able to explain what I'm looking for, but somehow she knew exactly what I wanted and was able to deliver in a seemingly effortless way. The pride she puts behind her talent pays off 100%. We would pick her again in a heartbeat!
Tracey did an amazing job as our wedding photographer! The pictures turned out very well and she is very easy and fun to work with. I met with many photographers and her pictures really impressed me. I'm definitely glad we went with Love and Life Photography. They really went above and beyond for engagement and wedding photos.
Tracey at Love & Life was the perfect choice of photographer for us. All of her wedding and engagement shots capture and express the underlying feeling of love I have for my husband, in whatever setting she is shooting. Her shots are simply stunning and bring out the core emotions present using a perfect balance of vivid and vibrant colors, lighting effects, and natural settings to the fullest. We considered many photographers but when we first sat down with Tracey in the Love & Life studio we knew very quickly she was going to be the right choice. Her portfolios are magnificent and striking and you simply must visit her lovely studio and check out her website. Her work really stood out for us over the others when we considered the feelings between people she was able to capture. She was also extremely flexible and understanding and tailored a package to our needs (my husband and I had a traditional Chinese tea ceremony that needed shooting before the actual wedding ceremony, and she and John were able to do this for us without any problems). Tracey was also super understanding with engagement photo locations and we never felt “rushed” to get anything done (the outdoor shoot at the August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area was so much fun!). Photography is such an important decision for a wedding – don’t settle for anything less than the absolute best there is in St. Louis. If God blesses us with children we will definitely be back to have more shots taken!
Tracey did a wonderful job understanding our vision from the start for our Engagement session to our Wedding day! Our pictures are beautiful and we love them! Tracey is a professional but she also definitely knows how to lighten the mood which I'm sure all you brides know....can be necessary on that day. Thank you again for helping us Tracey!
We could not be happier with chooseing Tracey for our wedding day! She did a phenominal job on our engagement pictures and the preview of our wedding photos took my breath away. Tracey also made time for "side jobs" leading up to our bid day. I would definitely recommend Love & Life photography for any of life's special occations.
Tracey and John were great to work with! You can tell they are very passionate about their work and will go the extra mile to make sure your day is memorable and captured! We will have a hard time picking our favorite photo as there are so many good ones!!
Tracey did our engagement pictures a few years ago and they are by far my favorite pictures of my husband and me. I like them even more than our wedding pictures! (We were married on the east coast so, unfortunately, weren't able to have Tracey do our wedding as well.) We have since used Tracey for baby and family photos and couldn't be happier. She is always laid back and patient, and a pleasure to be around. Tracey will also continue to take photos until she gets the perfect shot. She has never cut us off because we were "out of time." Tracey is always willing to try any poses or shots I request and has great ideas of her own as well. I highly recommend Love and Life Photography for any event!
Tracey and John are phenomenal!!! Loved working with them and appreciate them going along with our ideas and vision for our wedding photos. We LOVE our photos!!
Tracey and John did and amazing job at our wedding. They put up with us and our families and have turned out some great pictures. Tracey is organized and experienced and kept us on track. She really listened to what we wanted and captured our style and personalities. She's always on board to try new and creative things, we just had tons of fun together!
My husband and I absolutely love Tracey! We found her in 2009 for our engagement and wedding photos and from there on out we have used her for everything! We recommend her to everyone we meet who needs a wonderful photographer! Tracey has become part of the family!
I cant say enough about Tracey and Love and Life Photography. She captured so many special moments of our day. We still cherish them today.
Tracey is photaboulous! You could not ask for a better photographer! I love you Tracey
Tracey took amazing pictures for our engagement photos! They turned out better than I could have imagined! Tracey and John were both wonderful on our wedding day! Anytime I thought of a different picture I wanted taken on the day of, I just described it to Tracey and she was all for it! Her work is outstanding! We have only seen a few sneak peeks from our wedding day, but are already obsessed with them all and can't wait to see the rest!! I would recommend Love and Life Photography for any and all of your picture needs!! Can't wait to use Love and Life for years to come!
I absolutely adore my wedding pictures that Tracey took! Pricing was reasonable and she did an amazing job... worth much more than the cost! Thank you so much love and life photography!!!!
Tracey at Love and Life did a FANTASTIC job with our wedding. She was very flexible with helping us get the shots we wanted and the photos were stunning! You could tell the Tracey really cared about her work and wanted to make sure she captured every special moment of our big day, we are so appreciative, I highly recommend using Love and Life!
Photography was one of the things I really wanted to turn out for my wedding because it's the part of the wedding that stays with you the longest and that you cannot re-do. I wanted dramatic, winter photographs with unique lighting, gorgeous contrast and color, and a flair for the unique. Tracey delivered! Though we had an unseasonably warm day in February (75 degrees!), Tracey made sure that we got the photographs we wanted even with a tight timeline for getting it done. I was so impressed by how quickly she organized our sprawling extended families for the traditional portraits. Tracey also really encouraged the bridal party to get creative and enjoy our on-location shots at Wash U and the Chocolate Bar. We ended up with some of the most beautiful, 1920s-inspired photographs I could have imagined. To top it all off, our sparkler entrance and kiss ended up being one of my favorite photographs of the entire day. Tracey is fantastic. If you want beautiful photographs, book her!
Tracey is amazing and so talented! So easy to work with and takes the most amazing pictures!
I loved working with Love and Life. They made everything seemless and beautiful.
I have used Love and Life Photography for years! Tracey is amazing to work with. She manages to do more than capture a picture, she captures the moments. You can see the emotions and the personalities of each person in the photos. I couldn't have asked for a better experience or better photos. Tracey and her team do everything they can to make sure that your special moments are beautiful. Tracey has done my family portraits, senior pictures, my brothers wedding, my engagement, and my wedding. I can't wait until she is photographing my kids :)
As my husband and I were choosing vendors one of my coworkers told me to make sure I chose a good photographer (because hers wasn't), and she emphasized that our wedding photos are going to be one of the most important (if not the most important) records of our big day. I have to say we chose a great photographer when we decided to use Love and Life Photography. Tracey is wonderful to work with, and she is a phenomenal photographer. Most importantly, we love our pictures! They are beautiful memories that we will cherish forever. Choose Love and Life. You won't regret it!
We thoroughly enjoy all of our pictures! Tracey is a delight to work with. Tracey and her second shooter were professional yet personal, on time and easy to work with! They communicated well with our videographer and we had peace of mind after our special day that our pictures would be gorgeous. We love Tracey's studio too even though we didn't use it, it's nice to know she has a professional work space with adorable backdrops.
