HEY THERE, I'M CHARIS (SOUNDS LIKE PARIS WITH A K) AND I'M SO GLAD YOU'RE HERE.

I'm a visual storyteller and I'd love to tell yours...

 

I photograph local and destination weddings and elopements anywhere in the world... whether it's a back yard in the middle-of-nowhere-Missouri or a mountaintop in Iceland. Laid back, outdoor weddings set in scenic and unique settings are my forte.

I do offer lifestyle portrait sessions, but on a very limited basis. These sessions include the digital images for personal printing/use.

I'd love to go over all the details with you or talk through ideas. Head over to the contact page or shoot me an email at charisrowland@gmail.com. I can't wait to hear from you!

 

 

ABOUT ME

Professionally...

I'm a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in St. Louis, MO but am available for travel to any lovely spot on the globe. This isn't just a job for me, however. This is what I LOVE!!! This is what I think about, dream about, and ok, obsess about most days. I love shooting outdoors surrounded by nature and beautiful landscapes. It's where I feel most at home and most inspired. The couples I work best with are adventurous, laid-back, and aren't afraid to throw tradition out the window.

If I had to describe my photographs in three words they would be: modern / romantic / honest

My photographic style is kind of a mix of candid and directed photographs. I love getting those little moments and looks that pass between you that you may not even be aware of. But I also love creating stunning and emotional portraits. 

Another reason I love what I do… my husband, Kyle, shoots most of my weddings with me. He also makes killer highlight videos. We love working together and we make a pretty dang good team too. 

Personally...

I am a Christ-follower first and foremost. I believe with all my heart that my creativity, artistic nature, and desire for beauty flow straight from the Great Artist and Creator Himself. So I try to live in a way that honors Him.  I happen to have married the greatest man there is (it's true).  He just gets me.  I'm also the doubly blessed mama of twin boys.  They couldn't be more different in every possible way and I absolutely love it! 

When I'm not doing photography or being "Mom," I love traveling the world with my husband. I sometimes can't believe how much we've seen together.  We are both wanderers at heart and we love a good adventure. We're also both musicians (he is so hot when he plays the drums).  I love that we have that in common. I am artist through and through while he somehow manages to blend artist and savvy businessman seemlessly, thank goodness!  Sigh... are you rolling your eyes yet? 

K, that's enough about me. I'd love to hear about you! Head over to the contact page and let's connect! Or head over to Facebook and like my page to stay current. :)

Wanna hire me?

If you feel a connection to my work and think I'd be the perfect person to tell your story I would LOVE to hear from you!

I take on a very limited number of weddings each year because I have to be able to give it my heart and soul. For me, this is only worth doing if it continues to be my passion. Because of that I gravitate toward the things that fire me up: nature, natural light, and rad people who are looking for something a little different. Hopefully that's you!
