Carmen Schuette Sledge


Carmen Schuette Sledge is a fine art wedding and portrait  photographer with a passion for natural light, beautiful locations, and people in love.

Carmen was schooled in Chicago, IL at DePaul University in Public Communications and Columbia College in Fine Art Photography.  Somewhere between the the big city and the small town where she came from,  she found herself completely inspired and in love with photographing people. With an artful approach to documenting weddings, portraits and even corporate photographs, Carmen strives to tell a story and create beautiful images.

When Carmen is not busy shooting you can find her hanging with her wonderful husband (and second shooter) Philip, and two little ones Josie and Peter.

Currently based in the St. Louis and Chicago areas, Carmen specializes in both local and destination weddings and will gladly travel to any location for a wedding celebration or shoot.
