• The Ladies of A-1


Let us start out by saying we love receiving any pictures of our items being utilized at your events. Seriously, send all of the pictures our way. A majority of our rentals are by customer pick up. But if we do deliver, we're often the first on-site and the last to pickup. It's very rare that we get to see the finished product after all of the décor and other tidbits are added that make an event truly special.

One photographer that we love working with and receiving pictures from is Kelsi Kliethermes Photography. Kelsi is kind, authentic, talented and always delivers a beautiful gallery. From engagements to weddings, her passion is capturing the unique love stories of brides and grooms in Missouri and beyond.

We asked Kelsi what is her favorite thing about weddings was and she said:

"Without a doubt witnessing (and photographing) all of the unfiltered, authentic emotion. Time and time again when I walk into a wedding day I get the chills when I see a mom tearing up when helping her daughter into her wedding dress, or when I see a mother dancing with her son and literally beaming at him with so much love and pride, or when I see family members and friends surround the couple to pray over them and their marriage. I often think to myself, "This just feels right." Weddings bring out the best in people, and it's why I love my job as a wedding photographer so much!"

You can see her passion in every photo she takes.


Booking Kelsi Kliethermes Photography is an investment that you will thank yourself for for years to come. When you choose Kelsi, you can sit back, relax end truly enjoy every moment of your big day knowing that she will be there document it all.

"From your grand celebration, to jaw-dropping Bride and Groom portraits that will have your friends and family talking for years to come, all the way down to the finer details—no special moment will go undocumented. Your love story is made to last a lifetime; and so should your wedding photography. That’s why I curate refined portraits that you’ve always envisioned and everyone will remember."

From the engagement to the wedding and beyond, Kelsi is with her clients every step of the way. She even provides her couples with an experience guide that she wrote to make the experience even easier. In order to genuinely invest in her couples, Kelsi only photographs 10 weddings a year. It's a sign of her dedication to her clients and the craft of her work. You can rest assured knowing she will be there to capture all of the big and small moments of the best day of your life, exactly how you envisioned it.

It's hard to pick a favorite when literally every picture Kelsi takes is perfection. So here's a "small" gallery of some of the incredible events and styled shoots we've been a part of:
