M&E Photo Studio is a wedding and portrait photography studio based in Kansas City, Northern California, and Santa Fe NM.  

Destination weddings are our cup of tea too, we've travelled with our couples to from Hawaii to Puerto Rico, Palm Springs to Washington DC, The Smoky Mountains and into the waving prairies of Kansas.. and beyond!!  Travel is our jam, and we would love to go anywhere you want to be.  

What's most important to us is to let your stories tell themselves through our images, and we're always aiming for powerfully emotional, revealing, and narrative portraiture.  What intrigues us most?  The subtleties of relationships, the tricks of light, the beauty in the everyday.  What do we bring to our clients that they treasure forever?  Fresh, fun, timeless and true photography... imbued with an element of humor, magic, and the unexpected!

I wanted to be an artist from the moment I was old enough to move a crayon all over my parents white walls.  I wanted to be a photographer when I received my first camera from my Dad in high school.  I learned from him and my Grandfather, a photographer and an artist.  After graduating from the Kansas City Art Institute and beginning my profession I’ve discovered an amazing emotional connection to people that happens through this path; it has catapulted my work far beyond what I ever thought a wedding photographer did.  I’ve found myself to be not only an artist but a storyteller, counselor, ninja, and visionary.

I love traveling and I’m obsessed with landscape photography and the beautiful energy and power of faraway people and places.  You can find my personal work here: www.emsky.me

Image-making is a way of life for me, when I'm really seeing the world is when I feel most awake.  My love-affair with light paired with my joy in celebrations made me fall in love with wedding photography right away. There's nothing better than to witness and document this incredible day for a couple and their family, knowing it will be shared for generations to come.  

I inherited my love of photography from my Dad and grandpa, (one of the many parallels Louise and I share) and it was a part of my life as far back as I remember. I studied photography formally at K-State and Columbia College Chicago.  It's a craft that keeps me endlessly intrigued and forever inspired. 

I'm also a music and festival photographer, my personal work can be found here: www.seenimagery.com

I am an observer and I strive to tell stories through my images. Light, love and laughter are among my favorite things to photograph. I have a strong passion for capturing life through images and try to convey visual stories. I love how photography can stop time…and allows us to revisit that time. While attaining my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at Missouri State University, I fell in love with photography and never stopped perfecting my craft. Through creativity and a sharp eye, I hope to create powerful images filled with emotion, personality, and beauty. I want to tell YOUR story!

I got into photography as a profession after moving to Kansas City from
Nashville where I was pursuing a career in music. The relationships
and stories I've acquired from my lifestyle as a photographer are
irreplaceable. In addition to shooting as an Associate Photographer with M&E I work extensively in the editorial and fashion world.  Lots more of my work can be seen on my personal site at www.iamchrismullins.com
