Why do I photograph weddings?
I love to take pictures of people, and a wedding is one of the few places where people won’t say no to a photo. The laughing and crying, the drinking and dancing, the kisses and hugs, the kids and the old folks, the embarrassing speeches and the looks of adoration, all of these things and more, can be found at a wedding. Weddings can get crazy and stressful, and easy for some of those moments to go unnoticed while participating in them. I’ll capture the moments that you remember and the ones that you missed.

“Mike and Carrie did such an amazing job the day of our wedding! They allowed everyone to be themselves and it showed in our pictures.”
“Working with Mike was the best decision I could have made for my wedding. They were not only professional, but also looking for ways to make our day less stressful. Not to mention the pictures are fantastic. Thanks so much for your help making our day special and leaving us with such beautiful memories!!”
“Mike and his wife Carrie shot our wedding in July of 2016 and everything turned out beautifully! They really went above and beyond to capture the spirit of the day. They even had to come up with different ideas for photos since our initial plan had to change due to weather. Overall, I cannot recommend him enough, he's easy to work with and takes incredible photos.”
“Me and my Fiancé enjoyed working with mike and his wife throughout our engagement session. They implemented fun and cute ideas while shooting to keep us laughing and acting like our normal selves. Mike was very good at communicating and getting back to us in a timely matter. He is definitely someone I would recommend to others for their photo needs!”

About Mike Heine
Hi! I’m Mike and I’m a relaxed wedding photographer in the wonderful city of Maryland Heights, but I shoot weddings all over the St. Louis area.
I live in a cozy little house with my wife and two kids (and our dog).
My favorite things in the world are watching my daughter's softball games and playing video games with my son, and when I’m not shooting weddings you’ll find me watching Netflix (currently The Crown) or grading papers with my wife.
I couldn’t live without my laptop, my iPhone and back-up battery. I spend a lot of time at home with my favorite people and nothing makes me happier than cooking up new recipes.
My love of people watching is what got me into wedding photography. I’ve been a photographer for four years and I can’t imagine doing anything else. The best thing about being a wedding photographer is that I get to take awesome photos and work five days a week in my boxers.
My couples love having a good time, and the last thing they want is a photographer who bosses them abround and takes over their wedding day.
My wedding photography style is relaxed and laid back. I capture all the silly and joyful moments, and let you get on with having an awesome day. For me the best bit about a wedding day is the party, because everyone’s a bit tipsy and has forgotten about me and my camera.
Your wedding is all about enjoying yourself. You don’t care about formalities or worrying about the little things that don’t matter – you just want to have an amazing time with your friends and family.
If this sounds like you, and you don’t think I’m a total nutcase (or maybe you do and you like it!) then get in touch!
