here's why you should choose us:

Feeling prepared.

From a user friendly client portal that includes your contract, invoices, questionnaires on the engagement session and wedding questionnaire that goes over everything you want captured to pre wedding meetings to timeline organization and prep, we want to make sure we are both prepared. 

We have multiple shooters. We have a social media member/assistant. We have professional equipment that allows us to make 2 copies of everything. We have backups of our backups. We have a shot list and poses we’d ideally like to capture. We got a ‘day of’ kit.

You, your experience, AND your images are our top priority.

Feeling cared for.

We never want you to feel like just another client. We want you to feel like a friend. We want you to know we care. And we try to show that as best as possible. If you need a break from your non listening bridal party or family, we’ll steal ya away. If you need someone to fix your hair and veil, we got you. If you need someone to bring your plates to the kitchen, we got you. If you need a dance partner, the cha cha slide is our forte.

It’s your day, we want you to have the most memorable, magical day possible. 

Turn around time.

With sneak peeks within 2-3 days and your entire gallery delivered in 2-3 weeks, we pride ourselves in knowing that your images will be back faster than 80% of the industry. 

I know what is was like to get images of my big day within days and I want you to feel that joy too. 


Are you LGBTQ+ wedding friendly?

Love is love. It is in no way my place to say who can love who. I will in no way treat you, pose you, or post your images any differently than if you were a straight couple. You do you, boo. & I'll be delighted to capture your love!

Do you travel?

YAS! Let's travel and adventure. No place is too far for this girl! I've traveled all the way to Ethiopia and Indonesia before ;)
I am based in Mid Missouri (and spend almost half my time in Northern California).
Travel cost outside of my 1 hr radius will result in travel fees/accommodations and will be included in your quote.

Client Testimonials
Elizabeth & Christian
Our wedding schedule didn't go as planned but Amber was flexible and worked with us to get the most of the time and situation. She was professional and accommodating. She made a 3 hour drive in the downpouring rain a few days before the wedding to our pre-wedding shoot and did a phenomenal job! Also, delivery time of the photos were super fast-within the week! We had a ton of photos to select from.

Miranda & Grant
I’m not normally one to enjoy being in pictures but Amber makes it so fun and enjoyable! She is very easy going and will go with the flow. My wedding was an outside wedding on a very hot day and most people were fanning themselves and trying to stay out of the sun, however, Amber and her husband Chase were running all over that place making sure that they captured every little moment and did not complain once! I honestly never even noticed that they were there and did not see them at all during the ceremony! She was on time, made sure I got all of the shots that I was wanting, and was so personable and professional! 100% would recommend Amber Koelling Photography to anyone and everyone for their big day!

John & Cheri
If you are looking for a wedding photographer then look no further than Amber! She was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. Professional, efficient, friendly and, most importantly, took the most fabulous photographs of our wedding, in challenging weather conditions (it was so cold for "us" girls) and muddy. (of course Amber warned me to take off my heels and change my shoes before we took our gorgeous photos in the field). We enjoyed having Amber and Chase a part of our day. We could not have wished for a better photographer. Thank you, Amber and Chase. We look forward to having you capture more photos of our family.
