Hey all! I’m Lori Benson, Owner, and Photographer for Charming Hearts Photography. Being a photographer is amazing since I get to meet so many different people from all over Missouri and even the country. Weddings are our specialty and having done many we’ve found that each wedding brings its own uniqueness and we’re always excited to see what each day brings.

Part of what makes Charming Hearts Photography great is we make an amazing team. I get to work with two fabulous ladies and together, the three of us, bring an exceptional set of talents and skills to give you the excellent experience you’re looking for from start to when we place the polished and completed portraits into your hands.  

Some fun facts about me:

  • I married the love of my life in February 1996!

  • We have two amazing kids.

  • We have two dogs and a cat. Surprise, surprise...they get along perfectly!

  • I love romance novels. I not only read them, but I have some published novels myself.

  • Anything chocolate with peanuts, walnuts, or almonds is a must on my list.

  • I look ridiculous when I wink.

  • I feel incredibly blessed to be able to do photography.

Hi everyone! My name is Jennifer Herron. I started mentoring with Lori a few years ago where I began assisting at weddings, to second shooting and now a lead photographer.

 

Here's some of those 'fun facts' about me. 

  • I married may best friend, biggest fan and the love of my life, September 2015

  • We are the proud parents to two daughters. Our youngest girl loves school, dance and playing wiffleball.

  • We have four fur babies. Two dogs that love us and two cats that seem to like us. LOL!

  • I was in health care for nine years before I became a stay-at-home Mom.

  • I volunteer for a group in our community that helps families who have fallen on hard times. I've served as president of that group for three years now. I recently started volunteering as coach for my daughter's wiffleball team.

  • My longtime love has been photography! Lori took my wedding photos. We got to know each other and became friends. I started mentoring with her and now we've been a team for the last few years. I am truly blessed to be where I am.
