a thousand moments

The red-headed optimist devoted to story telling, the creative who wants to be best friends with everyone, the girl who sees beauty in the most unexpected places...


step one: see if we are a match

We believe each bride encompasses her own style, values her own specific moments in which she hopes to tell her own specific love story.

And like each story is unique, so is each storyteller--so we believe finding a match for your wedding is essential.

Lacey Rene couples are drawn to elegance and romance. They are timeless, classic.
They want an experience.
They value details.
They are joyful and genuine and deeply care for others.
(And they often leave as friends to Lacey...)
Think we're a fit?


step two:
inquire and make it official

We're a match! (Have I mentioned I can't wait to get to know you?) Scroll to the inquire section and send me a bit more about yourself and your wedding date!

After we find out if your date is avaliable, we'll send you a short questionnaire and contract for your wedding experience! You're date will officially be secured once the deposit is paid. Next up....your complimentary engagement session!

step three:
your engagement session

After you're officially a Lacey Rene Couple and depending on your package, we'll begin dreaming about your engagement session! Together we'll find the perfect location and talk through outfits to make your vision a reality! Many couples are nervous that they aren't photogenic--don't be! I'll instruct you through the whole session and can promise you'll be at ease after the first few minutes! (Compliments of having an extroverted photographer!) Once your 35-45 edited images are complete, then you'll receive your online gallery to view, download, print and share!

step four: planning

We know that planning, organizing and preparing for your wedding can be a daunting task. In the months after your engagement session you'll find countless informational blog posts to help you with specific aspects of your wedding! There are countless tips and tricks to guide you through a smooth wedding. Our heart is to come alongside each of our brides every step of the way!

step five:
detailed questionnaire

About four to eight weeks from your wedding date I'll send a detailed questionnaire as well as the final payment for your wedding photography. The longer questionnaire equips me with everything that I will need to know in order to create a customized wedding timeline!

step six: your custom timeline

This is by far a favorite! Each of Lacey Rene's brides receives a custom wedding day timeline created from the detailed questionnaire! From the timetable for each section of the day, to family portrait breakdowns, to must have shots--your custom timeline relieves the pressure of you having to think through lighting, locations, times and coordinating all the details of your day and lets Lacey do it for you! Your custom timeline allows for an organized day and provides a way to easily inform all your vendors, bridal party and family members of where they have to be when creating a seamless, stress free day! After the rough draft timeline is created, we'll schedule a coffee date to make any necessary changes and be sure we've talked through all the details of your upcoming wedding!

step seven:
your wedding day

It's finally here! Because of your custom timeline, you get to relax and remember every aspect of your wedding while we step into your story, stopping your special moments for you. Our favorite part is the portrait section of you and your new groom and because of your engagement session you know the poses and feel confident and comfortable in front of the camera! We'll share sneak peeks on social media leading up to you receiving your online gallery! Your unique, breathtaking day will be featured on the blog for friends and family to relive with you!

step eight:
custom wedding album

Custom designed heirloom albums are an add on option for couples who desire to have in-hand, printed, high quality collection of favorite images from their wedding day! You choose your favorite memories with your groom, your album cover color and we create custom spreads!

step nine:
we remain friends

Most all our brides remain dear friends for years to come! We believe being a wedding photographer allows us to be a part of lives greatest joys and with that comes the unique opportunity to step intimately into the sweetest parts of people's stories! Often times lasting friendships are created--and that's just the way Lacey likes it!!

Lacey is the sweetest, most personable photographer. From our engagement session to wedding day she constantly took time to check in and ask us how wedding planning was going. She truly considers it an honor to be a part of your wedding day memories and that is something that is so rare.... Lacey is calm and patient and is able to get all of your crazy family members together for those ever so important group shots on wedding day! She is kind and passionate and so incredibly talented, anyone would be lucky to have her capture some of the most important memories of their lifetime!

CHOOSE LACEY! For starters my husband, like most guys, is not a fan of having photo shoots. When came time for the engagement photos I was flabbergasted that he was actually having fun and when we got in the car after he could not stop talking enough about how surprised he was by Lacey that she made it feel so comfortable. She has the best energy!! This wonderful human was a huge contributor to making our day so perfect and memorable. She is more than a photographer, she kept my whole day organized, problem solved and most of all kept me calm and stress free. 


Where do I even start?? Lacey is absolutely incredible! She was our photographer for our wedding and gave us the most perfect pictures. She makes it so easy to be in front of the camera and captured our day even better than I could have imagined. Every picture we got is beautiful and good quality. She is just the sweetest person & having her around made our day even more special! Anyone looking for a photographer for their wedding (or any kind of picture!!) should use Lacey!

Lacey's passion for photography shines in all her work, but I think it is her passion for people that makes her so uniquely talented. She has a clear desire to capture the most precious moments for people, because she gets to know and cares deeply for each of her clients. It was such a relief being a bride, and being able to be in the moment throughout my wedding day, knowing Lacey wants so badly to make sure all the beauty and emotion of the day are captured. And now I can look at our wedding photos and feel like I am reliving the day over and over, and I am so grateful to Lacey for that.

I cannot say enough positive things about Lacey. From the first time we met her at our engagement session I could tell that she not only was passionate about photography but about people as well. She truly cares about her clients and makes you feel comfortable right away. Lacey is so encouraging and full of joy which makes taking pictures with her so much fun. She made our wedding day flow so smoothly and our pictures turned out flawless. We definitely gained a lifetime friend and couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to capture our special day!

Oh my goodness, Lacey is everything you could want in a photographer and more! She makes you feel 100% comfortable, especially when you have little experience being in front of the camera. Our pictures turned out better than I could ever imagine and my friends and family keep raving about what an amazing job Lacey did. This is definitely her calling and God-given talent. If you ever need a photographer in the KC area reach out to Lacey because you will not be disappointed. 


Our pictures turned out better than I ever could have imagined. Not only did my husband and I love having her, our wedding party, parents, and wedding guests did too! It was a great way for us to communicate with our wedding party and other vendors. I did not have a wedding planner, but I didn't need one with Lacey's help! You would be silly to not pick this wonderful photographer and genuine woman!

Molly and Alec

Lacey has a vibrant and inviting personality that makes you feel comfortable at the shoot! She is very fine detail, fixing stray hairs or lipstick before the picture is taken. She is also big detail - creating amazing, clear images that I can’t wait to hang in my home, put on my Christmas cards and post on Facebook!

michelle and alex

My fiancé and I couldn't be more grateful for Lacey's talent, kindness, and professionalism. She accommodated our unique timeline, our extremely cold engagement photo shoot, and our hope for a quick turn around. After our first sneak peek photo was placed on FB, both friends, family, and co-workers were announcing their awe of her amazing work. Not only were our pictures absolutely incredible, but you've never worked with a sweeter woman. She made us feel so comfortable. Finding Lacey Rene Studios, and Lacey, has been the biggest blessing in the wedding planning process. If you need a photographer, she truly is the best!
