Katie & Adam

We knew this day would be pretty because Katie Saeger and her team were in charge of design. And we knew it would be fun because Katie and Adam are so easy to be around. These two were thrown a few loops during their wedding planning, and even on the day of (we had SUCH a rainy summer in St. Louis, need I say more?) but they handled it all with such grace and good spirits (We’ve rarely had more fun during bridal prep because Katie and her bridesmaids – who are amazing singers – had a playlist full of showtunes. No complaints from these photographers!). Add in the most perfect flowers by Tina Barrera, pretty paper goodies by Livia Paul and well…happy campers, rain and all.

Pricing

Wedding Photography Collections are custom created for each couple. Let’s grab some dessert or hop on Skype and we’ll dig in to what you’re imagining for your wedding day. We’ll help you figure out how many hours of coverage you’ll need on the wedding weekend, as well as what you hope for from your wedding photographs when you look at them for years to come. Then we’ll put together the perfect package just for you. Prices start around $3700 for coverage by two photographers and digital files, with lots of options to add bespoke albums and heirloom prints. 

We are local to St. Louis and New England, but our passports are always up to date and we have traveled all over for weddings. Extra costs may apply if we need to wander too far from home base.

Nikki & Tamin

We think a backyard wedding is just so special and Nikki & Tamin’s wedding at Tamin’s childhood home in Cambridge was no exception. Nikki and Tamin’s mom spent hours foraging antique furniture and other decor from the basement and attic of the home and both Nikki & Tamin’s siblings officiated the ceremony. One of our favorite details from the day was the small wedding cake at the center of each table – it gave Nikki & Tamin a great excuse to spend time with each of the tables and guests had fun trading slices to try different flavors. It couldn’t have been a more intimate and fun family celebration!

About Us

Hello there! We’re April and Lindsey and we’re delighted to meet you. We are super lucky to have been photographing weddings together for over a decade –  we met as kids living in the Midwest, moved to Los Angeles together after college and established and grew Sweet Monday while there. In 2013 we returned East to set up shop in Boston (April) and St. Louis (Lindsey). We photograph all our weddings together and have found that our clients appreciate our seamless method of working as a team and an ability for unspoken communication across a crowded room that we have been cultivating since we were 12 years old.

We both hold degrees in filmmaking and bring our passion for visual storytelling to our photography. While our style is primarily candid or documentary in nature, we frequently incorporate editorial style portraits, all with the objective of capturing the narrative of a wedding through a series of vibrant, emotional images. You can expect to see a lot of natural light filled photographs in our work, but we also love moody and dramatic images when the moment calls for it. 

During our nearly 12 years in business, we’ve been fortunate to have worked with the best of the best in the wedding industry and love the collaborative nature of weddings. We’re suckers for detail – both the pretty ones like a lovely stationery suite and the practical ones like keeping the wedding day train running on schedule. We often joke with our clients that “we are type A so you don’t have to be!” What we really hope for all our couples is that they can truly relax on their wedding day and soak in all the love and joy that comes after months of hard work in planning such a big event.

We’re proud to have our work published many times and especially honored to have earned preferred vendor status with several influential and well-known blogs (you can find out more on our Accolades page).
