About Us

At St. Charles Wedding Photography, our philosophy is simple:

Great wedding photos should be available to all budgets!

We’re no upstarts or part-time wannabes! St. Charles Wedding Photography was created by Patrick Pope as a sub studio of Patrick Pope Photography, a full time professional wedding photographer who’s timeless storytelling has been respected and loved by brides for years. He’s used his extensive photographic experience, intimate knowledge of the St Charles area, and years of valuable insight into the local wedding market to create a studio that’s both affordable and provides couples with good photos.

Candid? Traditional? Somewhere in between?

You might say we’re in that Goldilocks zone where you get a bit of everything. Wedding day events such as the ceremony, toasts, cake cutting, and dances are photographed candidly so you can focus on the day. Portraits are obviously a bit more staged but we still keep it relaxed and low stress.

You get a very complete story of the wedding day. We don’t try to capture every single glance or behind the scenes moment. Instead we concentrate on the key moments and events to give you a nice record of your big day

Most couples find this is a perfect balance and makes for a smooth, low stress day. If capturing all those little glances, special moments, and emotions that might otherwise go unnoticed is a high priority for you, then you should check out our primary studio, Patrick Pope Photography. That’s exactly what sets Patrick’s photos apart from other photographers.
