I’m Dana, a St. Louis based wedding photographer. I can’t wait to hear about your wedding, help you with your details, and show the true you in timeless, heirloom images.
Hi! I am Dana Tate, a St. Louis wedding photographer.
Your wedding is a unique reflection of you. That’s why I love getting to know you personally — so I can tell your story beautifully. Sharing all your wedding dreams and details helps me create authentic, meaningful images that reflect the true you. Your unguarded moments. Your natural emotions. All the cherished images of your very special day. My shooting style creates images that naturally reveal the expressions of love and commitment that you both share. This is my passion and it shines through in every image.
I know your life together will be filled with extraordinary moments — intimate, surprising and joyous. Those fleeting moments, captured creatively, are the timeless heirlooms that will instantly bring you back to precious memories for years to come. Your wedding is just the beginning.
Let me tell your love story like no one else can.
My love story started almost twenty years ago and it just keeps getting better. I met my husband while I was in high school and as silly as it sounds for me it was love at first sight. Jeremy and I have been married for 13 amazing years, and in love for almost 20. I thank God daily for bringing him into my life. We have shared the memories of two proms, two amazing trips to Disney World, quite a few bad movies, countless amazing meals (and just a few bad ones that may or may not have been made by me), having a baby, and the construction of our home. I look forward to the next 5o years with him!
My story wouldn’t be complete without showing off my amazing family. Jeremy and I have an adorable daughter, Kennedy. She is the greatest blessing I have ever known. She is smart, funny, beautiful, and growing far to fast. She is almost taller than me! Together we take care of the coolest dog around, our great dane, Sookie.
WOW! I'm left beyond speechless at this woman's talent and gift. The entire day went so smoothly. Many new brides think that the photographer's job starts on the wedding day, but there is SO much more "behind the scenes" work that requires a lot of work and details to make the day go off without a hitch! Dana does just that. After meeting with her we knew she was the right pick (after viewing our engagement photos, we were even more elated with our decision). She is so much more than a photographer; she truly wants your day to go as smoothly as possible because she cares! My husband and I both cried and laughed when we viewed our wedding photos. They are perfect.
Dana was the most universally talented person we worked with on our wedding day.Dana listened to what we wanted and made sure it happened. She also helped walk us through the process. Together, we made a timeline for the day that fit our wedding perfectly and still allowed us to spend plenty of time with friends and family. On top of photography, Dana fixed a bridesmaids hair into an up-do when it fell down, and sewed on part of my wedding dress that had come undone.Dana was so easy to work with and made our day that much easier and better!
I'm not sure I can put into words how happy I am that we chose Dana as our wedding photographer! Dana is an incredibly talented photographer, but also an amazing person. She is professional, flexible, compassionate, energetic, and creative. On our wedding day the weather went from sunny and 99 degrees to pouring rain, but that did not affect her at all. She was still smiling and coming up with wonderful ideas for our photos. Her attitude really helped us to stay calm and worry-free all day long. We are so glad that Dana was our photographer!!! I recommend her 1000%!
