We are Joel & Shannon Conner. We are wedding photographers in St. Louis and the owners of Conner Photography. We've been married for four years now, and we have the best little boy in the world. His name is Edmund, and he has brought more joy into our lives than we ever could have imagined. So much of what we do comes down to who we are as a family. We love getting to work together on a daily basis – we know not everyone could work with their spouse, but for us it's a dream come true. Joel is the technical one, the artist, and the dreamer who sees the big picture and is always looking to improve our craft. I (Shannon) am the detailed one, with an eye for style and fashion, who helps Joel figure out a way to execute the big plans he comes up with and keep us (mostly) organized. Together we make a great team, each of us allowing the other to flourish in our individual strengths. We love it.
We believe that marriages are a big deal. Massive. One of the biggest decisions you will ever make. We waited a long time to find each other and be married (check out our love story), so we understand how big of a step you are taking. We take this very seriously, and this is why we dedicate ourselves so intensely to what we do. We place a high value on connecting with our couples, so we are able to capture YOU as you truly are. You are special, and your story is special. You want a photographer that understands that and connects with you. And that's exactly what we do. It's a pleasure to meet you. Be sure to say hello.
Joel and Shannon shoot weddings together and on their own using additional staff as second photographers and assistants.
