St. Charles Photographers

Jason & Traci Shadden

Welcome to Monochrome Photo Studios, where we're passionate about crafting portraits that authentically reflect your story. Located just off First Capitol in the heart of St. Charles, Missouri, our studio offers a creative haven where your distinctive personality takes the spotlight.

At MPS we're all about creating experiences that resonate. Whether we are shooting outdoors or in the studio we're dedicated to ensuring your photography session is nothing short of extraordinary. Guided by a sharp focus on impeccable lighting and the art of photography, every portrait we take holds a vibrant and unique story.

Jason is the driving force behind Monochrome Photo Studios. His photographic journey began in 2015 as an associate photographer, capturing weddings, senior portraits, and engagements. After serving in the US Army, he found his home in St. Charles, setting out to explore the city's vibrant history. Jason's lens is an extension of his passion for art, music, and culture, weaving these elements into frames that resonate with breathtaking memories. His distinction as a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) by the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) underlines his dedication to excellence.

Traci is a dedicated professional photographer whose journey traces back to 1994 when she first embraced film photography in Minnesota. Rooted in her profound connection to the arts, her lens captures each snapshot as a tribute to her love for photography. Pursuing a Master Photographer degree through PPA is a testament to her ongoing commitment to her craft.


​Jason and Traci, a dynamic duo since 2018, solidified their creative bond in 2022. Their home is a joyful blend of family, encompassing their five children, two hairless feline friends, and the ever-charming Chloe, their goldendoodle.

As you step into our world, we're thrilled to embark on a journey together. Our aim is to create images that capture your unique story, resonating with each moment. We can't wait to meet you!
