We are the Ogalat Family (pronounced o-gala)
IT'S MORE THAN A PRETTY PICTURE
We believe our responsibility goes far beyond the pretty picture. You're asking us to photograph once-in-a-lifetime moments, & we take that to heart. Let us tell your story.
PRESERVING THE MEMORY IN A TIMELESS WAY
Choosing a photo team is no small decision. Once you've walked that aisle as newlyweds, the dancing is over, and the guests have gone, your wedding day becomes a memory. We are there to capture and preserve what otherwise can't be experienced again. We want to do this in a timeless and authentic way that represents you both as a couple.
Our story begins in the spring of 2021 around the table at a mutual friend's house. After a two hour conversation, Bruce was smitten and Haylie was thrilled to have met someone who would listen to her stories of living in Uganda. When you know you know...so about seven months later, we promised before God and a church full of family & friends to stay faithful to each other forever. It was an incredibly special day!
Haylie has been working in the wedding industry for over five years, photographing weddings throughout the Midwest. She is passionate about entrepreneurship, serving others, cultivating a healthy lifestyle, & having meaningful conversations with friends - new and old. She's a farm kid at heart with a travel bug that bites every year or so. She drinks her coffee with lots of raw milk & it's always in a to - go cup.
Bruce has a degree in accounting, & enjoys being a student of life. He's passionate about personal development, business development, and the game of basketball. He grew up on the west coast of Central Africa, and has a smile & big laugh that will light up any room. He sips his coffee black, only on the weekends, and usually while reading a book.
Together, we love meeting new people & serving them through photography. We love the community & church family we're a part of in the countryside of Missouri. As our family grows, we're excited to share with them the values of both of our cultures & create a strong unit together.
