More than just pretty pictures.

At Vein + Vessel, we believe that photographs should make you feel something. That a photograph should transport you back in time. Whether they're documenting your biggest moments or simply the beauty of everyday life, photographs should be meaningful as well as beautiful. We believe that it is just as important to capture the outside as it is to capture the inside. All of the messy, bittersweet, wonderful things that make you you.  

We believe that all love should be celebrated. We work with couples and families from every walk of life, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation.

If you're looking for images that are out-of-the-ordinary, adventurous, honest, and creative, then you've come to the right place. Have a look around. We can't wait to hear your story!


Kind words



We are Katie and Mike and we shoot weddings together. We live in a cozy home in south city, St. Louis with our dog Ruby, cat Bianca, and son Fox. We love delicious craft beer and good bourbon and hanging out on our front porch on nice nights. Dark TV shows and movies are our favorite, but we would also be okay with watching 30 Rock on repeat for all of eternity. In general we are two people that are silly, fun, and social and have a passion for all things creative.
