I think I have found the best wedding photographer in the St. Louis area. The business is called Lens Magic, run out of the photographers home. She is at the top of her game and does any type of shot you can think of, and the best part, the pricing is well below that of other photographers. When you book with her, you get the entire day, unlike most photographers who just stay for an hour of the reception. Shes there to capture the preparation, vows and post numptual celebration until the last guest leaves. Normally, for this kind of service, you would expect to pay in the thousands, but her service is much less than that although should be much more. I used her service for my own wedding and when the proofs came back, which was within two weeks, I was absolutely amazed at the number of photos I had to choose from. Not only did we have a 100 page album full, she also had a large envelope with just as many photos inside. We had professional pictures of every guest at our wedding and reception, which is much nicer than the disposable camera shots which normally is the only way you get those kind of pictures. When it was time to order, the reprint prices were just as reasonable as her rates were for our wedding day. The best part is, almost four years later, I was able to call her and still order prints. She keeps all of the weddings she does on file so that its possible to do this. She has actually done pictures for a wedding, then been called back for the couples 25th anniversary for copies of those pictures and had been able to produce them!
The best thing is, she does more than weddings! Baby pictures, senior pictures- whatever you want. When she does these types of pictures, she only books one person per day so that she can have as much time as necessary to capture exactly what you’re wanting. She will take whatever time is necessary, but without the additional charge that most photographers. You just pay for the session as a whole package, not per hour or per shot!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this business. This is definitely where I will have all of my professional pictures done from now on and will recommend her to anyone and everyone!
