About Cassidy

I am a Midwest Wedding + Family Photographer with an artistic documentary style. I photograph intimate, subtle moments and I want to document your story in a meaningful way.

A little more about me —

After 7 amazing years living in teeny apartments in Brooklyn, my husband Drew and I made the move back to our hometown of Saint Louis to raise our kids (Dot & George) closer to our families. I know it is the most incredible experience having everyone you love together in one place to celebrate you. Aside from the births of my babies, my wedding was the best day ever. But being a mom has made me appreciate photography the most — I know how fleeting time is and how important it is to have printed memories of those you love dearly. Let’s capture your first big day as a married couple or an ordinary day at home with your family. Tomorrow isn’t promised and I want to document you with your favorite people as they are today.

My WHY

I feel the most myself when I’m helping others work toward their purpose and when creating joyful reminders of sharing our lives together. Something as simple as holding the hand of someone you love on a beautifully ordinary day. Or your child sitting on your hip as you carry them around for what might be the last time before they would rather walk ahead of you. I will help you print your most beloved photos to avoid digital dread (check out my custom designed Fine Art Books). I truly believe that art and holding photographs in our hands has the power to transform us. To bring you back to something simple and genuine. To bring you peace when you’re missing someone you’ve loved and lost. To make you feel connected to one another.

I’d much rather talk about —

your deepest thoughts / hopes / fears than make small talk. I am an INFJ. Type 1w2 on the Enneagram. My love language is Quality Time. And I am an extroverted introvert, depending on the crowd. I am a minimalist, I love interior design, and am obsessed with organization. I have a love / hate relationship with social media. My word for 2021 is intentional — with my phone, time / energy, reading, and digital minimalism.
