I dove into the world of St. Louis wedding photography in 2009, and have had a blast meeting new couples and working with them to capture a truly amazing and fun-filled time in their lives. I keep a down-to-earth attitude and really listen to my brides and grooms – my job is not to force my style onto you, but to capture the best version of your personal style. You will get my dedication to detail, my professional eye for the unexpected, and my penchant for having a rip-roaring good time. Your wedding day will be filled with anticipation, laughter, happy tears, and both planned and unplanned surprises – and I will be with you every step of the way to capture it all.

For those that like to know the nitty gritty, I have a Bachelor’s Degree in photography from Southern Illinois University Carbondale. My career started in advertising, where I touched almost every aspect of photography, from set designer and photographer to digital retoucher and photo editor. I’ve worked for big name companies and been published in local and national magazines. I continue to work in commercial photography in the St. Louis area, and my clients have included Nine Network of Public Media (KETC / PBS), Pro Source Flooring, Minnesota Public Radio, and Powell Tate.

As for Jason Winkeler, my love for adventure and photography has taken me all around the world, leaving me a passport that boasts 20+ different counties. When I break from the world of photography, I take my passion for outdoors to whitewater kayaking, backpacking, mountain biking, repelling and anything else that involves getting lost in nature.

My Style: I would say my wedding photography is fun,timeless and photojournalistic. I love to capture moments while they happen. Real expression is simply the best. The best way to describe my style is by taking a look around my blog, website and coming to the studio to look at one of our wedding books. My commercial style has a wide range. Understanding  how to achieve or exceed my client’s goals is key to developing the right commercial image. You can go to my portfolios and view my recent work page or lifestyle portfolio.
