Hello all! I'm Ty Smith, Owner and Operator of Studio 724 Photography. My love for photography started over 20 years ago when I picked up my moms camera for the first time. Since then I have never stopped learning the art of photography and videography. I am always looking for new ways to improve and help my subjects stand out. 

If you know me you know that I am definitely a people person and love helping others. My goal is to grow relationships and help those around me succeed using my craft!

I am a certified Part 107 Drone Pilot and love being in the sky! This perspective is not one we see in our day to day lives and I think that adds a lot of value to your listing!

I purchased Studio 724 Photography in the beginning of 2020 and have been loving every minute of this amazing venture! I appreciate you all and I am looking forward to working with more clients in the future!

My Name is Emily Kriese and I grew up in the St. Louis area. I became interested in photography at a very early age getting my first camera at the age of 10 as a birthday present. In Highschool I got to take 3 film based photography classes which I absolutely loved! Taking pictures quickly became my favorite hobby. After graduating highschool I went to college to major in social work. While that field interests me still, photography is definitely the bigger passion of mine! 

After we moved back to St. Louis after college, I became very interested in the Real Estate market and following the trends of Real Estate.  

After practicing photographing friends and family for YEARS, I started to really get into the professional side of photography; Engagement sessions, weddings, family photos and really whatever someone wanted to hire me for! So when Ty offered me the opportunity to come work for him, I felt like it was a perfect combination of the 2 things I am  the most interested in! What could be a better job?? I love getting to document all of the unique finishes and attributes all of these homes have to offer! I also love getting to talk to all of the agents and customers we shoot for. So if I haven’t got to shoot for you yet I can’t wait to meet you all!
