Jessa Balough

Artist • Mom • Wife • Laugh Persuer 

I am the owner of Jessa Balough (Bah-low) Photographer, LLC.

I have been in the Photography world for 10 years and became a full-time Photographer in August of 2017. Not only am I growing as a small business owner, but I am constantly perfecting my craft as an Artist.

I am a promotor of self-love, the assistant to a 2 year old, an obsessor of planting and maintaining succulents and I make breakfast burritos every, single morning (no shame). I have a rescue dog who is 4 with the largest ears to date (he probably gets satellite on those things) and a Husband who has been stuck with me since September of 2016 <3

Please take a look around. I hope to hear from you and learn about what is most important in your life.

My business is located in St. Louis, Missouri. If you are in need of travel information, feel free to contact me. I travel all over! I can be reached using the contact form below!

Meet my Team

These two are incredible Women and Artists. They are Professional, Reliable and I would bet my life on them. Their work is impeccable and I wouldn't trust anyone else to be my right hand gals! When booking a wedding or large session with me, you will most likely see one of these two with their camera's doing their thang.

Second Shooter

Emma enjoys coffee, cats & making homemade soups. Her laugh is pretty darn contagious so feel free to get her started. She will be your personal cheerleader and your very best gal pal.


Katie Crum Photography

Second Shooter

Katie enjoys long walks on the farm, all organic household products and making you laugh until soda comes out of your nose. She's a great road trip buddy and will give you real, hilarious advice about life in general.
