My now husband and I met with Bailey of Beautiful Mess Photography with the intention of shopping around for a photographer. Bailey was so easy to talk to and her portfolio was gorgeous. She won us over and we knew that we wanted her to be our photographer. Bailey is in my opinion one of the best wedding photographers in St. Louis. Our engagement and wedding photos are absolutely beautiful and artfully done. Bailey made our wedding day so special. I highly recommend Beautiful Mess Photography!!!!Sent on 11/17/2016

Exquisite Photos and a Friendly Photographer
Bailey was just the best wedding photographer we could imagine. She spent AGES with us, she was extremely upbeat and friendly, she helped with all sorts of things during the wedding she didn't need to help with, and she captured gorgeous photos which perfectly bottled the spirit and feelings of the day. We're both very happy with the results and would recommend Beautiful Mess Photography to anyone.Sent on 01/15/2019

We love Bailey!! So far, we have had our engagement shoot and it was great. We are not great at taking pictures and knowing what poses look good, but Bailey captured great shots. She is really great at getting candid photos and capturing moments rather than just posing. We don't want to spend our entire wedding day posing for pictures which is why we chose Beautiful Mess. Her philosophy of storytelling through photography fits perfectly with my fiance and I and we are excited for her to capture moments of our wedding day, not just pictures of it.Sent on 08/17/2017

We have worked with Bailey from Beautiful Mess on quite a few weddings now and she is always great. The day always flows with her in control and she even lets us get our shots too. Very professional and very fun to work with. Top Shelf Photography
