St. Louis Professional Head Shots

Gary Brandes, STL Wind Symphony

We met Gary on a beautiful Sunday morning in St. Charles, for his lifestyle/headshot session. Gary is an amazing musician and professor who currently teaches over at Lyndenwood University in St. Charles, MO right in the heart of the city. We had so much fun walking the downtown historic streets, capturing so many different looks.

He was looking for not just professional head shots, but also some casual photos as well to capture his love for his music. We loved getting to know Gary and how he started his music career, as a child he started playing piano and progressed into finding his true passion which was the trombone in the brass family.

Lifestyle portraits don't have to be boring and cookie cutter, we like to make you stand out from everyone else. When choosing your photographer for your branding headshot session, make sure they get to know who you are and what you want to represent. Gary was professional, but artistic and I think we captured him perfectly!

We like to mix natural light alongside some dramatic lighting to capture the true essence of the session, we love how these turned out, we had a blast!
