INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Prints
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
We have professional graphic designers that try and accomodate any special request. It is our favorite thing to do. That would be considered either an "Artistic Enhancement" or a "Premium Artistic Conversion" to us depending on the request. Please visit: http://www.journalisticstyle.com/shortpdf.pdf
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
We are all experienced professionals and very adaptable - we bring portable studio lighting equipment with umbrellas along for use if necessary.
Is your media preference film or digital?
We shoot all digital. We shoot in the RAW mode for capturing the most information possible and then spend huge amounts of time refining those images into the best printable jpgs we can provide you.
How many photographers do you work with?
We are a total of eight professional photographers as main photograhers, but we also have several photograhers who specialize in being second photographers.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Of course.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never more than one event in a day for any photographer. Most of our photograhers will only shoot one event on a weekend.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes - and that is an advantage of booking with a studio with a lot of resources and experience in the wedding photography field. We even hire a photographer on a busy weekend just as a backup and don't charge a lucky client for a second photographer that day. You book with a "lone wolf" and that person gets sick that day (or just decides otherwise) and you are out of luck. We get last minute calls all the time to cover someone like that.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
each photograher brings a couple of professionals level cameras and several lenses and both on camera flash on a bracket and studio lighting equipment with umbrellas.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Both - usually hourly, but you book us for 10 hours we consider that a full day and make that allowance. We are pretty flexible. Please visit and discuss your needs.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
It varies, but from as little as $125 to $145 per hour. We allow a half hour "grace period" and have a careful planning session before the wedding so this does not usually come up at the event
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
If there is a dinner within the days plans, we request something to eat, but a vendor meal is fine and we have not charged you for that time - it is included in our charges.
Do you charge for travel?
Only if it is very extensive. And it is often a savings over the regular photograhy charge for that time. It is in the cleints interest.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
I try to be within around 3 weeks but sometimes things get backed up as much as five weeks. The reason is we process to a greater degree than most any other studio - we process 2.5 hours on average for every hour we have shot. The results are extremely well processsed images that can be printed as is by the client with full rights to them. It is worth the wait.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
printable jpgs - printable to 8x10 prints.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
There are no proof books - you receive a DVD of printable images. And full rights to them forever.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Only for marketing purposes and only if you voluntarily do so.
 We give you full rights. The only exception being you can't resell the images.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
With your permission only.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes - automatically as images printable to 8x10 in size, and as full res images with an album or a reasonable additional charge.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes - we place all image on a convenient website.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Various professionally designed flush mount albums - our website has extensive information and images regarding this. We also offer traditional matted albums. I think we are one of the few studios that still offer these.
When will the client get the final album?
They are welcome to design the album whenever they want after they receive the images - but the design process often takes about four weeks (it is a professional custom design process) and then the actual printing and binding takes around six more weeks.

I chose St. Louis Color to do my engagement and wedding photos, and I was also able to add a photo booth to my contract at a discounted rate. Guillermo is a very experienced photographer, and did a beautiful job on our engagement photos. I got all the photos from the shoot on a disc, so I was able to make my own save the date cards. The copyright release was a large determining factor in using STL color for our wedding. Sonia Dea was our wedding photographer. She has done several weddings, and was a huge help as far as making our day run more smoothly! (including pinning on boutonnieres and getting programs passed out super last minute, because I was an unorganized bride..) I really appreciated Sonia's extra help! Our photos turned out beautifully. Again, I got all of my photos on a flash drive, so I'm able to print them when I want them, and also share them with our family and friends. Lastly, the photo booth was a huge hit! We got over 600 photos of our guests at the reception, and it kept all the kids occupied! And it was fun seeing my husband's grandpa posing with a pink feather boa! I picked Stl Color to do our photos because they had both the highest ratings and the most reasonable prices in the area. Guillermo was a pleasure to work with. If I have the opportunity to work with them again, I will!

We had such a great experience with St. Louis Color! They have packages available for any budget, and we were able to get full resolution files of our photos for less than any other photography company we interviewed. We also received our photos for both our engagement and wedding pictures within 2-3 weeks afterwards. Our photographer, Dominique, was great to work with! He was very professional and courteous and had great ideas for our photos. We were really happy with the results, and would recommend this company to others!

St. Louis Color was responsive, easy to work with, and professional.

More specifically:
Our photographer was Stacy Collier, and she was unequivocally amazing! Countless times during and since the wedding, I've heard, "Your photographer was the best."

I think the raves were certainly justified. From the onset, Stacy was personable, organized, engaging, and adaptable. Our four boys (age 5, 7, 7 and 8) were the groomsmen. They were a handful, and Stacy addressed them with grace and efficiency. She photographed our guests unobtrusviely and yet still managed to be everywhere. As my husband noted, you cannot help but smile when she points the camera at you, as her personality is so delightful.

When one of the little boys would step into a shot, she quickly included them and then returned to whatever we were actually trying to accomplish.

I may have to create another big life event soon, so just so I can work with her again.

Thank you so much for making a great event even better!

Guillermo and Rebecca did my sister's engagement and wedding photos over a year ago, and we loved it so much that we wanted them to do ours as well! My husband and I had a great experience taking engagement photos around Forest Park, and had a wonderful evening for our Wedding at the Lemp Mansion. Our personalities were captured perfectly, and the day was very well documented. Our families and friends love the pictures as well. We couldn't have been happier and were especially pleased with how affordable everything was!
