Sarah shot our wedding on March 9, 2012, and she was terrific! She really listened to us and was able to provide us what we wanted when we knew what we wanted, and she gave us lots of suggestions for things like shooting locations when we were stumped. We wanted a mix of some very traditional family portraits as well as some artsier shots of the event, and Sarah worked for a portrait photography studio for a long time and is a master of the studio head and shoulders shot, the sort of thing you might see in a corporate publication, but she is also a fine arts photographer, and she knows how to really push the medium with interesting angles, depth of field techniques, unusual lighting (one sequence for us included candles), filters, and post processing special effects, so I really felt like we had the best of both worlds with her. Before our ceremony, during the shooting of the traditional portraits and group shots, she was assertive and organized and was able to get our large, rowdy group to take their places in one combination after another, but she never came across as bossy or abrasive, the way some photographers do under these circumstances. It's a tough balance! She was right there for every key moment in our event but never distracted away from what was happening. I would book her again for sure.
We're sorry that you had a bad experience at Shirtabulous. As you may have forgotten or neglected to mention, you said that you needed the shirts now and that you didn't have time to go anywhere else. We did not have time to process a second rush order of that size without delaying other customers orders as it was just days before fathers day. We would have offered a full refund and kept the shirts we made and donate them to Goodwill. You chose to take the shirts and we gave you the shirts and still gave you a 3/4 refund. The phone call made the next day was to apologize to the gentleman that originally called us and suggested black lettering. We did however, feel your phone call later that day falsely claiming that you were called a vulgar name by the owner was slanderous and unecessary. There's no need for us to mention the words you used in this forum. Those who patronize our shop know you would not have been called such names regardless of your demeanor. If you would like, there is a family from our church with a screenprinting business that we highly recommend for larger orders. We respect your opinion and wish you good luck in your future endeavors. God bless!
Working with JG Visual was a truly great experience and I strongly recommend them to anyone looking for quality web design or photography. We worked with JG Visual to create a new website and Facebook landing page for our organization. I've led a couple website projects for different employers, and through this I've met with and worked with many different web developers in the St. Louis area. I can say without a doubt that JG Visual was the best company I've worked with. They took the time to understand our needs and goals, and worked with us to develop a comprehensive plan. From the idea phase and initial designs to execution and training, Jonathan and David from JG Visual were professional, patient, and maintained constant communication. Equally important, they cared - they checked in with us throughout the entire process and even after our sites launched they have been very helpful with any questions we have had. We love our new website! - Phil, Children's Miracle Network of Greater St. Louis
