A Chat with Jewels Photography StL
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I offer excellent service with my Nikon D5100. Once we pick a location and date, I travel to you. You will receive full rights to your disc of edited photos which you will receive within three weeks post-shoot.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I picked up my first camera in 7th grade. Throughout middle and high school, I was known as the one who always took photos. When I won my first photography competition in 2011, I decided to make a business of it.
What do you love most about your job?
I love giving people fabulous photos of themselves or their families. I love making people feel good. I also love that I get to give back to my community by keeping my prices affordable.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
My first wedding was tough. The bride was an hour late so the lighting guy was MIA by the time the ceremony began. Lighting is everything in photography so when I was told not to use my flash, I panicked. After editing, however, the bride was so happy with the results and that made me so happy!
