Our approach to wedding photography is to capture the spontaneous moments with precision and grace. During your ceremony (if allowed) and reception, powerful wireless photography strobes that are battery powered (no cords to trip on) will be placed unobtrusively in the reception hall to ensure the highest standards of quality and consistency for your photos. Only the best for you two!
We strive to make our directed shots look lively and spontaneous and our candid shots too perfect not to have been planned all along. Our top of the line packages include all the things and all the people needed to ensure your wedding album and prints show you in spectacular form.
We specialize in engagement sessions!
As much as we aim high on your wedding day, there is ultimately only so much we can do. When wrangling so many people together in so little time, naturally some things fall through the cracks and we know this. Which is why we put a particular focus on our Engagement Sessions for every couple who chooses Kenessey Studios for their photography.
Engagement sessions are great for so many reasons, they’re less fast paced and they give you and your partner a chance to settle in and enjoy yourselves. For us this is a differentiator, and we have more on offer than just taking pictures. While our basic and extended packages will give you great photos, if you’re looking for something a little different, a little more lux-life, we offer photography experiences that go beyond the typical engagement session.
We know St. Louis photo spots!
Having a photographer that not only knows St. Louis well but knows how to photograph St. Louis well adds value to your photography experience.
I know how to work a location, but when you tell me you want photos in say “Forest Park” I can think of 10 different spots right off the top of my head. Our experience working with the environment that St. Louis offers will make your wedding photos just that little bit extra special.
Unique options for your wedding day.
Most companies offer standardized packages to save time. We have those but we also go above and beyond with our offerings. If you want something special, just name it, we are willing to give it a go, for a price… 🙂 You want drone shots of you and your wedding party on the top of a building downtown?? We’ll get the permits, the insurance, the drone, the cameras, as well as a licensed operator so you can have THAT shot. Pretty much anything you can imagine within legal limits and personal safety we are willing to consider for your wedding day photography.
If there’s anything else you have questions about feel free to ask and we can work out how to accommodate your request to make your wedding the success you dreamed of!

”We're so lucky we ended up going with Kenessey Studios for our wedding. They arrived early and got lots of great photos of everyone getting ready which was something I really enjoyed seeing when we got our photos back. The whole wedding day went amazingly well and the pictures came out wonderfully. Shawn and his team made us feel at ease and made us look good too. They did a professional job from beginning to end. I recommend Kenessey Studios wholeheartedly!Katie
”They were quick and efficient, and had us do several different spots around the Museum. Plus, they were awesome at directing us on what to do and they were really creative with what shots we could do and where! They even braved a storm with us, and stayed out there until it started pouring (so we got some cool shots with the storm coming in).Hannah
”Shawn was so great to work with! He was very kind, had plenty of neat ideas for shots but also welcomed anything we were interested in trying. He made us feel comfortable and was extremely quick with his turn around of our pictures. Thank you so much, Shawn!Ashley
