Hi  there!

I’m Channa,
a Saint Louis Wedding Photographer Lifestyle Photographer

Evalyn was the middle name of my grandmother.

My mother gave me her middle name and then I named my daughter, Evalyn

my life + happiness

First and foremost, I am a wife to my better half, and a mother to two littles who won't stop growing! 

It wasn't until I had babies of my own and I started doing Mom things, that made me realize photography has always been apart of me. My mom started bringing over boxes of my childhood and most of them were filled with photos of little me. I realized I was carrying on a family legacy now that by documenting my own children. I try to keep up with their tiny toes that keep on growing. Every year seems like a new season of life. Even as husband and wife. We aren't as available for each other as we would like to be, to tell you the truth, with busy work schedules and taking care of our two little humans. I am glad I still have pictures around the house of when we were young in love because it keeps us remembering that we are still those two people madly in love with each other even though life gets busy. I hope you find yourself enjoying not just my wedding journals but also my real life journals. Sharing our stories may shine a light in yours and I want to help uplift, empower, and capture all the season of your life too.

I've been professionally doing hair since 2011, in the industry since 2008. I color my own hair but very rarely touch it with scissors and I'm pretty picky about who does. Lol.  Biggest tips...Deep conditioners and leave-in treatments are a must for everyone. 
I prefer makeup that leans more to the natural side but highlights your eye color and shape. I love a glowy finish! 

I'm pretty old school about lots of things. I still buy paperback books and print tons of the pictures I take on my phone. I prefer to hang out with kids over most adults- because I'm a giant child. 😂 

I LOVE old towns, especially ones with big brick buildings and spooky history. Outdoor concerts in the summer/fall give me so much life!
