We hired Bailey with Beautiful Mess for our wedding not only because she was a friend, but because her portfolio was amazing. Going into our wedding I had high hopes and she absolutely blew us away. We hardly noticed she was there during the ceremony, which is nice at a small, intimate wedding! And even so she was able to capture the most special moments. She has a way of making ordinary pictures unique and distinct and I love that my wedding pictures are so different than any others Id ever seen. We would recommend Beautiful Mess to anyone we know but the pictures really do speak for themselves! We will cherish these forever! Thanks Bailey!

We had a wonderful experience with Beautiful Mess Photography. The pictures were even better than I had hoped. Bailey is an artist! She was able to capture the personality of each of my children and get some great shots of me and my husband. The photo shoot was really fast too. It was a really fun experience.

Bailey and Tim are lovely people who so happen to be extremely talented photographers. Our pictures are simply beautiful and were undoubtedly made better by the calming presence that Bailey and Tim had on our wedding day. Bailey always listened to my thoughts and concerns (however irrational) and provided her thoughts based on her years in the industry but also with a willingness to try new things. Bailey and Tim have such an eye for positioning her clients within a landscape and working with natural lighting to produce some truly amazing photographs. They also have an eye for detail and as much focus is placed on the bride they never forget the groom. Beautiful Pictures, Lovely People and a Wonderful Experience - you can't go wrong with Beautiful Mess Photography!

Bailey and Tim were the photographers for our October wedding and they did an AMAZING job. On your wedding day, you spend more time with the photographers than with any of your other guests, and on top of being extremely talented, Bailey and Tim are great company! We got about 700 pictures back and all of them are beautiful! I can't recommend them highly enough - if you're looking for the best wedding photographers in St. Louis, choose Beautiful Mess.

Bailey is incredible. I LOVE working with her. She has taken pictures of my family and individually of my young girls multiple times. Our pictures always turn out wonderfully. She is willing to spend as much time as you need to get a good shot, but is able to capture it in about 8 minutes. She is so layed back and makes you feel totally comfortable. She is confident and knowledgable in what she is doing and give suggestions to get the perfect shot. When I need a good picture I will turn no where else. Beautiful mess photos adorn my house and will continue to as my children grow.

Anyone can take pictures, it takes a great talent to capture moments and we will forever be grateful to Bailey and Tim for capturing every last one on what was the most important day of our lives. We could not be more thrilled with our wedding photos from Beautiful Mess Photography; they are beautiful and truly tell the story of our wedding day. Of all the decisions we had to make for our wedding, choosing Beautiful Mess Photography was undoubtedly the best; Bailey and Tim are wonderful to work with and their photos are truly amazing!

We were on a tight budget for our outdoor, do-it-yourself wedding, but because of the difficult lighting and locations (ranging from lakeside afternoon to bonfire in the woods), we wanted someone with professional and artistic experience.

We met with about seven photographers before meeting with Bailey. She was warm, friendly, and seemed genuinely interested in what we wanted out of our wedding day rather than what poses or packages we would buy. She understood our budget limitations. We never felt like we were being 'sold' something, but rather like she was a collaborator in our creative endeavor.

She was attentive but not overbearing in the weeks leading up to the wedding, reminding us of important deadlines and asking important questions. She even asked what music we would like her to listen to while editing the photos in order for her to capture the right 'mood'.

On the wedding day, she seemed to be in thirty places at the same time... resulting in over 500 photos in a few short hours. Her rapport with our guests waas phenomenal - they thought she was a friend of ours who was taking our wedding pictures! Per our request, she took a range of formal and photojournalistic shots and followed the events and emotions of the day seamlessly.

Our pictures came back in record time, and we could tell that Bailey put a lot of heart into editing them to bring out the strongest emotions and details. The photos are just screaming with the life and warmth we felt that day. We would recommend Beautiful Mess - and in particular Bailey Mohr - to anyone.

Bailey and Tim did a great job with the photos for our wedding. We had a short time between the wedding and reception for photos and they were organized and focused so we could all of our photos in. The entire wedding party loved working with them! I would highly recommend using Beautiful Mess Photography!

Bailey was recommended to me by a friend when I got engaged. I looked at her website and IMMEDIATELY had to work with her! She allowed us to guide her on what we wanted, but she also guided us throughout the process of engagement pictures and wedding pictures. She had great ideas. I was amazed at how much the style of our relationship came out in the pictures and they were nothing shy of PERFECT!! Bailey and Tim are fun, funny and extremely professional. I know that I would not have been happier with anyone else!!

Bailey has photographed our young daughter on multiple occasions. She's really good with kids. My daughter can be shy around grown ups that she has not spent much time with, but Bailey has been able to work with that and use it to her advantage in some of the shots...making cute "serious" shots. She's able to turn a photograph into a conversation piece. Highly recommend her.

Our family loves Bailey and how comfortable she makes us feel when taking the photos. We have used Bailey for head shots, senior pictures and family photos. She is very professional, willing to give advice if needed, and always easy going and patient. Receiving the photo C.D. is a great bonus! We love the "real life" look and feel her photos have, not the staged glamour shot look. We highly recommend Bailey!

Bailey (Beautiful Mess Photography) did an amazing job with our son's 6 month baby photos. As you can imagine, a 6 month old isn't easily going to smile or sit for the camera but Bailey worked her magic and our son Sam took 100's of awesome photos! Bailey is so creative and she makes an everyday scene look magazine worthy. Unfortunately we moved and had to have our son's 1 year photo elsewhere...so sad! The second experience was awful and we don't plan on displaying the pics. We wish Beautiful Mess Photography would expand their business to Minnesota!!

the best thing about working with Bailey is that you can see how much she cares about her subject- in this case, my daughter. she was creative, understanding and really smart about everything from the lighting in my home to my daughter's inability to sit still! i had a great experience with Bailey and intend to use her again soon!

My wife and I have used Beautiful Mess to take a series of shots we can use in our work--PR pictures and the like. Bailey was great to work with: professional, cheerful, and helpful to a fault. We intend to use her more, and recommend her without hesitation.

Bailey has done photo shoots for us on several occasions - Christmas family photos (4 families, 20+ people) altogether for family celebration as well as my kids' photos as a present for Dad, and Senior pics for our graduation Senior. I love the way that she is responsive to the personalities of the people she shoots, comes up with fun and new ideas, and you get a cd to take and get all the copies/pictures you want!

Bailey's got enough edge to her that I knew she would be particular yet sharp in her work. Her personality alone gives her a different feel than most other photographers which is an assest to her professional work. She listens to your desires for the photo shoot and is willing to give advice to those who don't have preferences. My fiance and I were able to naturally interact unaware of her presence at times. She captured those small yet precious moments without distracting us or making us pause for a really long time. She has a good use of space, light, and shapes in her photos. Formal pictures are definately important, but our favorites were those special, precious moments unknowingly captured that are now forever with us in our photo albums. It's the small smiles, holding hands, warmth of the flowers, the romantic feel of the church, eye contact as your walking down the isle...snap shots that I am forever grateful for. She's was constantly on the move for a better shot. Not only does Bailey Mohr take great photos but she corrects and/or changes the lighting to pull out the strengths of each picture. Thanks Bailey for the adventure that keeps on living in our home."
