who i am
who i am

I'm a photographer for real people. I'm not into airbrushing, ultra-posed photography. My utmost goal is for my images to capture you creatively. We'll get the classic portraits, yes. But I also want your gallery to be full of artistic images that portray you & your significant other personality wise. What I'm getting at is that it's not the looks, outfits, or location that makes my pictures what they are. It's the people. Specifically those who are ok with taking the road less traveled, perhaps changing the time last minute to get the best light, & embraces the hair fly-aways + the unfocused outtakes. If that sounds like you, I think we'd be the perfect match! I'd swipe right ;) haha


The Bucket List


Now that you know a little about my work, let me introduce myself! I'm Sophie Axie Mae - a wedding & portrait photographer based out of St. Louis, MO. Photography has been my dream job since I was a freshman in High School. Six years later & I don't think that I can properly express how much I love it in words. Hopefully my pictures speak for themselves haha.


If I'm not taking pictures, I'm likely working on my design + hand-lettering business, A. M., Ink. Does the fact that I run two separate, creative businesses give away the fact that I am an enneagram 7 personality type?


My free time is spent bribing my dog to love me. He's a mini Australian Shepherd who's lovingly called Disco. The most important fact about me, however, is that I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I have been saved by his grace & I view my job as nothing but a gift from him!


I'll close this little bio by saying - my favorite beverage is coffee in any form, my order at CFA is a #1 with no pickle & I would be honored to photograph the next significant moment in your life. Have I mentioned that I'm the queen of segues? LET'S MAKE SOME MAGIC TOGETHER !! (that was aggressive oops)
