Darin was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. He listened to what we wanted and what was important to us and delivered on all counts. We now have TONS of pictures that have all been edited beautifully that we can treasure forever. The pictures are phenomenal and very original. Everyone enjoyed having Darin and his assistant hanging out with us the entire day. They were so much fun and incredibly personable, but also completely professional (and inconspicuous during the ceremony, which is very important). The bridal party all commented on how great the photographers were and how much fun they had taking pictures. We got everything we wanted in a wedding photographer and more with Dear Hart, and all for the lowest price we found in the area. I definitely recommend!
I hired Phil for a bachelorette photo shoot for a total of 10 girls. The photo shoot was for my sister. All the girls had an awesome time with Phil! He was absolutely amazing. He had never ending pose ideas and was also completely willing to try out whatever poses my sister had in mind. Despite the 95+ degree weather, Phil was a trooper and even kept us in the shade throughout our entire photo shoot. I have yet to see the final products, but I am sure they will look great! I highly recommend Phil and would definitely hire him again if I ever need a photographer in the STL area. I'm not sure I could have asked for a better photographer for our photo shoot!
We hired the Film Perspective to do a photo booth for our wedding reception. Our photographer did a great job. He had a variety of props and all the guests had a great time. The best part was seeing all of the images on the disc after the honeymoon. The BEST part was watching video messages from our dear friends that stayed later and recorded them. We would recommend the Film Perspective for your photo booth! We would recommend the video portion be available earlier. All in all a great experience!
I would say this is the most amazing photographer that I have ever worked with but she is more than that. She is the most amazing PERSON I have ever worked with on anything period! She is professional, courteous, and accommodating yet easy going and fun-loving! We hired her to do my daughter's senior pictures and I can't even begin to describe what an incredible experience it was. Not only did she do a fantastic job she did it at the last minute. The photographer that we originally hired cancelled 4 hours before the scheduled shoot. He was worried about the weather forecast. I knew it was a long shot to try and find someone else at the last minute but we had already put a lot of preparation into getting ready for the session. By that I mean we had already picked the outfits, done the hair and makeup and I had transformed the back of our SUV into a sort of fitting room. Since we were doing the shoot Downtown St Louis I knew my daughter would need a place to change clothes so I was prepared. Little did I know that Giovanna, even on such short notice, had us covered for any eventuality. She had her own little pop up dressing room, towels, umbrellas and just about anything else you can think of or would need. Again she did all of this with just a couple hours notice. Only later did I find out that she lives about an hour from the location we had chosen for the shoot so really she put it together in about an hour and she did it without hesitation. Needless to say I was extremely grateful for everything she was doing and I told her I couldn't believe what all she had done to make it happen for us. Her response was simply, "I like to make people happy." Now you know what I mean when I say she is the most amazing PERSON period! How many photographers would drop everything they were doing last minute on a Sunday afternoon, meet a strange client an hour away, and be more professional and prepared than any photographer you have ever worked with before......only GIOVANNA von NIDA PHOTOGRAPHY I guarantee it !!!
I hired Patrick to take business portraits. Ended up with a great variety of pics. Very happy with the results and would gladly hire him again.
After a great first experience with Karen's photography, I have asked her to do our family portraits annually for the past six years. Unlike previous photographers, within 4 days Karen gave me a disk with ALL THE PHOTOS. I like to decide which quirky look is typical and endearing on a child, something a photographer can't know. Since I got all the photos I had great fun playing with cropping them and choosing which to frame. She has done Senior Portraits, formal groups and my favorite are the very informal settings. I will call her again and again.
From start to end they were great! He was friendly, attentive and not demanding. They had to work with several families and arrangements and they kept everyone in line. I cant wait to see the photos!!
I know Randy Allen through the St. Louis Artists' Guild, where he took over for me as Chairman of the Photography Section. He's conscientious, a pleasure to work with, and a very capable & talented photographer. You will enjoy working with him.
I couldn't have asked for a better photographer for my bridal shower! She captured everything important without even knowing what was. Krysti is sweet and bubbly and a pleasure to work with! I'm so lucky to have her for such a special day!
There aren’t enough descriptors to compliment Sonya. Sonya met every expectation from start to finish. We were in need of a short notice photographer and Sonya was available. She made us feel comfortable by allowing us to share pictures and ideas before hand. Our shoot was scheduled on a day of rain, we had agreed on a location in advance. Sonya arrived early to survey the location and realized we would be fighting for space. Her quick response, provided us with an alternate location that we had to ourselves without any stress. On site, Sonya had props, and even allowed us to be in the way at times.. LOL Sonya was patient and fast at the same time. It was a perfect shoot.. rain, cold weather and all! The only suggestion I have is to CHOOSE Sonya for your event that you want captured, she will not disappoint😊
Mike O is the best photographer to have for any special occasion or photography session. He was on early and on top of all the details. There was no set schedule for his time. Mike made sure to be there for every moment of my wedding. If there was a request he was so flexible and fufilled it while giving his professional opinion. My photos turned out gorgeous including the samples he gave us as a gift. Unlike most photographers he dedicates his time unlimited to you and gave us a copy of all the moments. His pricing was less than any others and the quality even better!! Many of my guests complimented on how interactive and hilarious he was as well.
We can’t wait to work with Mark again! He achieved the exact look we were trying to achieve in our family portraits. He delivered us beautiful, high quality images that we will cherish for a lifetime.
Mattea is by far one of the best photographers I know. She produces world class photos on a consistent basis and has a keen eye for details. Passionate, inspirational, and easy to work with are just a few phrases to describe her. I thoroughly recommend Mattea.
Andre was amazing. I reached out via thumbtack and he was the only person to follow up 2x. Time zones were an issue with me being in New Zealand and him being in The USA. I liked his vibe and was comfortable the event would be properly documented-a family gathering. I ended up having a high school reunion the following weekend and was happy that he was available then too...no one had considered that a professional photographer would be a massive improvement over just a bunch of selfies... If you want quality and amazing memories, Andre is someone I can totally resommend!
I have seen many photographers before.Actually, I am really picky with every single thing that I wanna do or buy, but, but, he is the one whom you can ly on him with no hassles.we had 3 hrs of fun and enjoyable photo-shooting with him and, I really happy for choosing him between other photographers .our photos are amazing and speechless.I really love ,love ,love.... my husband is a very uncomfortable guy with these kinds of stuff like photo-shooting, but at the end, he told me we should have more session in future and it was shocking for me :))definitely I and my husband will have more session in different seasons with him, as long as we live in St.Louis. I highly recommend him to any couples who looking for a punctual, professional, responsible photographer with a calm session, and amazing photos... :)
Rae Marcel gave us an amazing experience even when Mother Nature decided to rain on our parade. Raynesha was beyond professional and encouraging throughout the process and gave us much laughter. I would recommend this photographer many times over and we will use her for many shoots to come! Kudos!
Very Passionate about his work and it shows in his Pictures & his Photography.
Samantha was amazing and worked well with Bryson, my son. She took us to a beautiful park and farm to let him engage with all of the animals. She is now our families photographer. I tell everyone to go to her. I highly recommend!
Wonderful Photographer with a natural eye for capturing the perfect shot!!
Angie is an amazing photographer. She listens to what you want out of your session as well as lending her experience to the shoot. I absolutely would recommend her to anyone for any occasion. Once again, AMAZING!!
Stephanie did a great job of capturing the personality of my son and nephew when she did their senior high school portraits. She produced really unique shots with beautiful lighting. Special and meaningful photos!
