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.

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
Rachel and Lara photographed our wedding this past April. They work very well together and kept a fantastic pace. We didn't feel rushed, nor did we feel like we missed out on anything due to the time it took to take pictures. They kept our families happy, were never rude, and even made us laugh at times! They captured our day perfectly! We ordered our wedding album through Ravetta, too. Rachel designed it and did such an incredible job. I couldn't imagine anyone could have done a better job. They are such kind people and are always happy to help. We have recommended Ravetta to other engaged couples and we are very confident they will be just as pleased as we were. We will be using Ravetta for all of our future portrait needs!
Before you sign up for a sitting, be sure you pay attention to their prices. Do not assume that they are more or less in line with other comparable photographers. They are in the stratosphere! You will end up paying nearly $1000 for a handful of prints and no high quality electronic images. She will only make these available as a slide show (not reproducible at high quality) for $250. She also does not make available basic things that you would expect from any professional photographer, like a black portrait background or any size print between 5 X 7 and wallets (no 3 X 5s; no 4 X 6s). The pictures were fine, but she is by no means better than other, more reasonably priced photographers.
Ravetta Photography photographed weddings for two of my daughters last year. I was extremely pleased both times. They are very helpful in assisting with packages and details of what will happen. Their prices are very competitive. They work hard and always have a pleasant attitude. We had the photo booth both weddings, and it was one of the highlights of each reception. Everyone had fun with the props,and my daughters had memory books there to put each photo in with the second photo going with the guest. I highly recommend Ravetta Photography for any photography needs.
Jonathan is a great listener and provides helpful feedback. I found him through a special he ran with Dealfind. He met me at my location of choice on time. As a woman I really appreciated his input in where my hands should be placed and even made sure my hair was nicely placed. I really APPRECIATED when he told me to suck in my gut. The pictures are phenomenal! He was able to get my photos back to me within a week and a half. I am still getting compliments on the photos he took.
Spectacular is the only way I can describe the service and photography that I received for my daughter's wedding. The photographers were extremely a pleasure to work with and in tune to us all day. My daughter was so happy with everything they took, that we had a hard time deciding what to pick. This is a good problem to have. Needless to say, the albums are fantastic. We made the right decision when we choose a professional photographer.
We felt incredibly fortunate to have used Sarah Carmody as our wedding photographer. Her photography was consistently exceptional and she captured both the intimate and larger moments that made our wedding special to us and our family and friends. In addition, Sarah was extremely pleasant to work with, before, during and after the wedding. We felt that we got great value and we love our wedding album!
I love, love, love this store!!! It is so much fun! Personalizing anything! Great gifts, fabulous colors and so many options...decorating handbags, water bottles, back packs, phone covers, headbands....the prices are extremely reasonable and affordable and it is a local family owned business with amazing service and dedication to doing a great job and getting it right every time.
Support a family owned and operated St. Louis business! If you want more unique pictures taken outside of the studio on "The Hill", they are willing to go practically anywhere! If you or your organization have a special event coming up give Ravetta a call! They have a photo booth with so many unique accessories! My wedding guests of all ages had a ton of fun with it!
