About Us | Black Tie Weddings & Events | St. Louis Wedding Vendor

Hi!!! Welcome . :). We are a husband and wife team. I am Christina, and I am the owner and lead photographer/videographer for every wedding. . My husband Patrick is our DJ. We met in 2006, and fell madly in love. We had our own wedding in 2008, and have been married ever since.

I am a hopeless romantic (thank you Disney and Nicholas Sparks for that). I believe in fairytales, true love, fate, and happily ever after. I am thoroughly addicted to coffee, wine, and romantic comedies. I am usually in some phase of growing my hair out, before I cave and cut it again. I like to spend my downtime with my family, or in my gardens. My absolute favorite place is NYC. I also love spending time in St. Louis as well. We live about an hour south of St. Louis but the majority of the weddings we service are in the St. Louis area. I have been a photographer at heart since I was 8 years old, but I officially began my career as a paid photographer in 2015.

Patrick is very much one of the guys. He loves sports, the outdoors, and his friends and family. He has had a love for music and entertaining since he was young. This is an old photo of him. His least favorite place to be is in front of a camera.

We have 3 fantastic kiddos. They are 25, 22, and 16. Our son also hates having his photo taken so this one is a bit dated as well.

This is our youngest, Emmy. She usually is the one running the photo booth. She’s fierce and independent with a kind heart and wise soul. She lives to serve others and bring them joy. She’s alot like me. Don’t tell her how much she looks like me though, she hates that.

At the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, we were blessed with our first grandchild. She is the absolute light of our lives. She’s funny, and smart, and sassy. We definitely aren’t raising timid women in this family.

Our family tree wouldn’t be complete without mentioning our dogs. From left to right, Envy, Oakley, Siri, and Gabby. Envy is the clingy, codependent one. Oakley the smart and obedient one (he is an actor and model, you will find him on TV and multiple products in stores and online. ). Siri is the sweet and quite one. Gabby is the sassy one, who takes no sass from anyone, but will take some tummy rubs.

That's our family in a nutshell. :). Our business is very much family owned and ran. Our second photographers are fellow professional photographers who are close friends who are more like family to us. Thank you for visiting and for the honor of being considered to be a part your special day. Congratulations on your engagement. Don't hesitate to reach out if we can answer any questions.
