Hello! I am Andy and I am the owner\photographer of A.J. Photography. I got my start in photography in 2003 while I was living in Washington D.C. and Nantucket, MA. My love for photography started as an interest, which turned into a hobby, and has now become a passion. I moved back to St. Louis, Missouri and started working for a studio part time. During that time, my full-time job made it difficult to pursue my passion, so I had to take a break from working in a studio and began to do side photography sessions on my own in my free time. My dream was always to be able to branch out on my own and pursue my love for photography. The dream of branching out on my own became a reality in A.J. Photography.
I photograph portraits, sporting events, senior pictures, business events, pets, engagements, and weddings. I do not have a studio and rely on photographing using natural light and am happy to travel to your site of your choosing or can provide multiple suggestions of locations. I will travel outside of the St. Louis Metro area for your photo session.
In 2017, I earned my FAA rating for Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems to fly drones commercially and will be adding a drone photography package in the coming months. Also in 2017, I was awarded the "Best of the Knot" distinction for wedding photographers.
About me personally, I am married to my lovely wife Theresa I have a Step Daughter Olivia, and my twins Mary Jayne and Kathryn. I enjoy cooking, traveling, playing hockey, and spending time with my family.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or photography opportunities that you might have. I would be very happy to work with you.
