Natural Aspects is an exceptional and affordable St Louis wedding photographer, St Charles wedding photographer, St Louis metro area wedding photographer, and Southern Illinois wedding photographer.
As St Louis wedding photographers for the last 15 years, our experience sets us apart from other wedding photographers in several important areas you need to be aware:
#1 TRUE HI RESOLUTION WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY DVD/CD
(BEWARE, not all CD’s are created equal)
One of the most important products in any St Louis wedding photography package is the CD of all wedding day images. Many St Louis wedding photographers offer this, however, there are major differences in quality, usage, and delivery time.
There are wedding photographers who include a CD of images, but not all images. Some offer the CD but not hi-resolution files so you can only post your photos online for social sharing. Other photographers allow print rights but are limited to a certain size like 3” x 5” or 4” x 6” (these are not hi-resolution files). And finally, there are St Louis wedding photographers that include hi-resolution files on CD with printing rights but they hold the CD for a period of time following the wedding such as 6 months or even up to 1 year before releasing them to you!
Natural Aspects wedding photography releases ALL wedding day images on a TRUE hi-resolution DVD/CD with FULL print rights up to any size desired within 3 WEEKS of the wedding day!
#2 WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY PLANNING ASSISTANCE
As a St Louis wedding photographer for the last 15 years, we provide you with professional wedding photography planning to avoid problems you may not be aware of, for FREE!
We meet with every bride & groom several weeks prior to wedding day to discuss the wedding day time line. We offer helpful suggestions on secret parks and unique photo areas that we’ve discovered over the years to avoid wasting time and big crowds. We stay up to date on all special events at parks and professional sports teams schedules so we can avoid or plan around these areas on your wedding day to prevent unnecessary delays. We pay close attention to sunset time everyday of the year so we’re not “caught in the dark.” Many wedding day details are discussed at this meeting to insure our wedding photography runs on a smooth schedule and nothing is missed.
After our meeting, you’ll be comfortable knowing that we pay attention to every detail to insure there are no surprises, delays, or disappointments.
With Natural Aspects, you’re not just hiring a St Louis wedding photographer but a seasoned and knowledgeable St Louis wedding planning team familiar with all aspects of the wedding day process to assist in fulfilling your expectations.
#3 WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER SPECIAL SHOT LIST
There are many important shots; bride portraits, rings, kiss, parents, cake, dance, etc., that will always be captured at every wedding. Each and every St Louis wedding is special so we always find ways of photographing the beauty and spontaneity in creative ways. Additionally, you may have ideas of what is special to you including people, places, and creative shots you’ve seen in magazines or online. We encourage you to list or show us those “not to be missed” shots and we help you put them in a format easy to follow on the wedding day so time is not wasted and nothing important to you is missed.
#4 WE BACK UP EVERYTHING
Not only do we provide back up equipment on each and every wedding but back up wedding photographers as well. Although we photograph several weddings in one day, we always keep at least two wedding photographers in reserve that are packed and ready to go at a moments notice. Since wedding photographers can have accidents, sickness, or other emergencies that prevent them from shooting, this is an excellent built-in insurance policy to give you peace of mind.
#5 ARCHIVAL WEDDING PHOTO PROTECTION BACK UP
Over the years we’ve had many couples contact us regarding losses of their precious wedding photographs due to fire, flood, or they simply misplaced them. Luckily for them and you, our policy has always been to protect these important images forever.
We keep original hard copy files of each and every wedding in fire-proof cabinets and electronic back up at our studio in St. Charles and, as added precaution, off-site electronic file back up of every wedding. This triple security of your wedding photographs insures that you will never be without these irreplaceable memories regardless of what happens in life.
#6 MULTIPLE PAYMENT OPTIONS
Most professional St Louis wedding photographers require full payment 2-4 weeks prior to your wedding date. This may be unrealistic for many couples.
Natural Aspects is one of few St Louis wedding photographers that offer a payment plan and the ONLY St Louis wedding photographer that offers an extended monthly payment plan well beyond your wedding date. Call 636-697-8780 anytime to discuss the flexible and affordable payment plans available to you. No credit checks – everyone is approved. $100 reserves your wedding date when you choose a Natural Aspects interest-free monthly payment plan.
The confidence in our work is evident as we do not require you pay in full prior to your wedding date. However, we offer a very generous discount for those couples who desire and are able to pay in full when booking with us.
#7 EXCLUSIVE DESIGNED ALBUMS BY MARILYN WOLFE
All bridal albums are custom designed exclusively by owner, Marilyn Wolfe. She DOES NOT use boring drag and drop templates which make every album look alike. Marilyn allows you to choose your favorite images, then blends unique backgrounds to compliment those images, and provides you with a stunning, one-of-a-kind masterpiece to be cherished for years to come. Your St Louis wedding photography will not be complete without a special album designed by Marilyn!
#8 WHY OUR WEDDING PRICING IS AFFORDABLE
First of all, we’ve been in the St Louis wedding photography business long enough (15 years) that the building in which our studio is located is paid off so we don’t have any rent or mortgage payments like other photographers must pay.
More than half our St Louis wedding photography business comes from referrals (people who know someone who has used us in the past) so we don’t need to spend huge amounts of money on advertising.
We have a team of seven full time St Louis wedding photographers who have been with us for 7+ years that allows us to photograph several weddings on any given date. Although there are many fine St Louis wedding photographers and St Charles wedding photographers who work on their own, most can only photograph one wedding on any given date and must charge more in order to stay in business. You’re not really getting a better wedding photographer by paying them more, you’re just paying more!
Natural Aspects Photography has never borrowed any money to operate and does not have monthly debt payments like other St Louis wedding photographers. It’s almost unheard of for any business to be debt free in this country, but we are!
It’s really just a matter of economics, we charge less than other experienced St Louis wedding photographers and experienced St Charles wedding photographers because our wedding photography company is very well managed and financially sound which is comforting to any bride. The last thing you need to worry about is whether or not your St Louis wedding photographer will show up on your wedding day or worse, be out of business.
Beware of some St Louis wedding photographers who heavily discount their normally high wedding photography packages in order to get your business. Although a temporary fix for them, this practice may put them in danger of not having enough funds available to complete your product orders following your wedding which could mean long delays or no product for you at all.
At Natural Aspects Photography you always pay a reasonable price and get exceptional service with a financially stable company.
Because of our distinct advantages and affordable pricing, most wedding dates book up quickly. Don’t hesitate to contact us and temporarily reserve your date prior to meeting with us at our photography studio in St Charles.
