Hey there, We are the Rowlands and we're SO GLAD YOU'RE HERE.




We are visual storytellers and we'd love to tell yours...


We document 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 our forte.

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

We'd love to go over all the details with you or talk through ideas. Head over to the contact page. We can't wait to hear from you!





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

Our photographic style is kind of a mix of candid and directed imagery. We love capturing the connection between people. It's all those little moments and looks that pass between you that you may not even be aware of that truly tell your story. But we also love creating stunning and emotional portraits that you'll want to stare at every single day.  


We are Christ-followers first and foremost. We believe with all our hearts that our creativity, artistic nature, and desire for beauty flow straight from the Great Artist and Creator Himself. So we try to live in a way that honors Him.  

We're those annoyingly-in-love people that actually enjoy spending every waking moment together... for the most part anyway. We're also the doubly blessed parents of twin boys.  They couldn't be more different in every possible way and we absolutely love it! 

We're crazy into travel! (Who isn't these days?) We 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; Kyle is a drummer and Charis is a singer/songwriter. Basically we really really love being artists. :)


take photos/videos. will travel.



Wanna hire us?

If you feel a connection to our work and think we'd be the perfect ones to tell your story, we would LOVE to hear from you!

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

If you want to chat about something other than weddings and elopements you can shoot us an email at: hello@wearetherowlands.com
