who i am
who i am

I'm a photographer for real people. If you are looking for someone who has mad photoshop skills & one who does really extreme posing, I am not the girl for you. I like to say that my photography is beautifully honest. You, your story -- it's beautiful. & it deserves to be documented in a way where you're instantly transported back to how you felt. A photographer I admire once said "I never want my clients to feel like a tourist in their photos" -- i truly could not have said it better myself! 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's wedding is not about competing or getting the most reposts. Hair fly aways, rain during the wedding, veil falling off mid-procession? Just part of our story. I'm just along for the ride. It's one of the great joys of my life to be a fly on the wall to one of your most exciting days, & honestly, I hope it's only the start of our friendship. clients turned friends is no rare occurrence over here ;)


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)
