Nothing short of Amazing!Reviewed on 4/29/2015
A photographer was one of the first things I searched for once my wedding planning process started. A friend recommended Sandra Grunzinger Photography and showed me a sampling of her work. I instantly fell in love with her ability to capture not only the major moments of the day, but also the small intimate moments with and between family and friends. Sandra was nothing but professional throughout the entire planning process. We sat down a few months before the wedding and she went over all the packages she offers and we filled out a formal contract. This process really helped to instill in me that Sandra was doing everything possible to ensure she knew what I was wanting in a photographer and that we were on the same page. The package I picked included engagement photos. Sandra helped us pick out a gorgeous location and was even able to get my fiancé to smile naturally for the photos! The photos were done in a very timely manner and we were ecstatic with the results. About a month before the wedding Sandra sent my fiancé and I a questionnaire to fill out about our wedding day. I liked to think of myself as an overly prepared bride, but her questionnaire helped to ask about details that I hadn’t even though about. Sandra wanted to make sure that she was able to capture as many of the special moments throughout our wedding day as possible. Sandra showed up early on the wedding day and was well prepared. She did a great job with all the formal wedding photos, even memorizing some of the family member’s names to help in the posing process. We even started running ahead of schedule! While the posed pictures turned out amazing, I have to say that all my favorite pictures are the ones that Sandra took while no one was paying attention. She really captured my wedding day and the special moments; my mother putting a family bracelet on me, my fiancé and I laughing together, our friends and family dancing out on the dance floor. Our wedding photos were done in a very timely manner and I am thrilled with the results! I highly recommend Sandra Grunzinger Photography for your wedding!

Sandra did an absolutely amazing job photographing my wedding! She was able to capture our day perfectly! Sandra was able to make the most out of our rainy day by finding photo inspiration inside a Casino/Hotel lobby! I highly recommend her services to brides looking for high quality photos at a very reasonable price!!
Rising Star!Reviewed on 11/30/2013 Kathryn M
Sandra did our engagement pictures and we would have had her do the wedding if she could have! She does fantastic work. My fiancee and I have never looked so good as we do in her pictures. We did a superhero-themed shoot and she was completely on board. We're not models, so I was glad she gave us a lot of instruction about where to look and place our hands. I'm really self-conscious in front of the camera and I was really comfortable with her.
SGP was magnificent with our families wedding and even better on our daughters newbord photos. I could not say enough good things about thing young woman and her talent.
We selected Sandra Grunzinger Photography for both our engagement photos and wedding photos. While I was impressed with the interactions and at ease approach of the session, I got what I was expecting: high quality, professionally shot photographs that were worth sharing and hanging in our home. So when it came time for the wedding, I didn't give the photos a second thought. When we received them, I was blown away! Yes, there were the countless photos of families standing and posing with my new wife and me. But past that were truly breathtaking images of our special day. From the perfect look on my face of when I saw my wife's dress for the first time to our marriage vows, those touchstone moments were heartfelt and perfect. I was so happy that those monumentally important instances were captured with such clarity and framing that for a moment I thought we were looking at a staged event. But then we got to see the photos from the reception and I was astounded by how Sandra Grunzinger was able to capture utterly perfect candid shots that exemplified the love and joy of that day. To see all of our friends and family embrace one another in song and dance, sitting and laughing at tables, watching the bouquet toss and cake cutting, I couldn't believe that Sandra had been in the right spot at the right time over and over again. She has an ability to adjust her lenses and seek out the right moment to showcase emotion that I envy. In short, I cannot thank her enough for giving us a photo album that I often look back on and never hesitate to show off. I've never been a fan of any picture taken on me, but I cannot think of a single embarrassing shot from that day. If you're looking for a photographer that is easy to get along with, knows exactly what they're doing, and will provide you with dozens of frame-worthy images of you special day, then you need Sandra Grunzinger Photography.
If you are looking for a photographer that can capture breathtaking photos that you would see on Pinterest while also highlighting the personalities of you and your future spouse, look no further than Sandra Grunzinger Photography. Sandra took my engagement photos, and I could not be more in love. Sandra took every picture that we requested, while also suggesting poses that would flatter us, and show off our goofy side. Some of my favorite photos were not the ones we posed for, but the ones she snapped while we were moving from location to location that were completely candid. Sandra is very easy to work with, and made us feel completely comfortable (which is saying a lot for my very awkward fiance)! I would HIGHLY recommend her as a photographer!!!!!!
Sandra Grunzinger Photography is fantastic. Sandra knew just how to make this self-conscience bride look and feel beautiful!
Sandra was very pleasant, flexible, followed up with us quickly, and took beautiful wedding photos demonstrating her eye for detail. We are very happy with the results and would recommend her to anyone!
Sandra did an amazing job with our wedding. She did a fantastic job not only with the photos, but also making sure that we were on schedule. She was very organized and nothing was missed. We got our photos back very quickly and we were extremely pleased. We were also very impressed with her personality. My brother has autism and she worked very well with him. She captured him actually smiling which is not an easy task. He still mentions how nice she was almost two months later. I couldn't be happier with the service and pictures we received from her. Would highly recommend.
Sandra did a great job photographing our wedding! We couldn't be happier with how things turned out. Our photos looked wonderful, and we were surprised at how soon we got some sneak peak shots after the wedding. Sandra really worked to make sure we got all of the photos that we wanted at the ceremony and the reception. Highly recommended!
Sandra was great to work with and the photos turned out wonderfully. She was also very reasonably priced.
Sandra is the best! She took amazing photos and even took some of the silly photos that I wanted! She's very accommodating to requests and will fill them. When I told her that I was interested in a photo booth, she put one together and it was fantastic and fun! She and her husband work so well together and they're so easy going that you can't feel awkward or weird with them. They're family!
We chose Sandra for our engagement and wedding photos and it was a wonderful decision. Sandra was easy to work with and did a wonderful job for both events. My husband and I are not very good at taking pictures, but she made us feel comfortable and we got amazing results! We loved her and would absolutely recommend her!
Sandra was more than amazing. She was so patient with us and accommodated every request. Her work is beautiful and from the photos she showed me, her quality of work is top notch. We highly recommend her!!!
Sandra did our engagement photos and she will be doing our wedding in May! I normally feel awkward having my picture taken but Sandra did such a good job of making us feel comfortable and reminding us to have fun! We had our engagement pictures taken in Busch stadium and then we took pictures with our dogs in a park and she did awesome with both! It was a fun and stress free day and our pictures turned out awesome! I can't wait to see how my wedding pictures will turn out!
Sandra was amazing for so many reasons! -The photos turned out beautiful -We got the photos back VERY quickly -She offered great insight and feedback on photo locations and poses -She made the entire process very simple and was pleasant to work with!
Sandra was absolutely amazing! Booking her for our wedding was the best decision that we made by far! She is professional, flexible, and very talented! She goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. She has a great eye for scenery and captures moments perfectly! Sandra truly cares about how your pictures make you feel and wants the best shots possible! If you're uncomfortable taking photos (like my husband and I were) she is fantastic at educating you about photography and different ways that you can pose for the camera. The thing that I like best about her is she captured the most pure moments that not many photographers can catch. Her products that she offers are by far the most unique I have seen and absolutely worth everything! I absolutely 100% recommend Sandra as your wedding day photographer! She will NOT disappoint! By far the best photographer in St. Louis!
Our experience with Sandra was nothing short of amazing. She worked with us throughout the process to make sure that everything was in line with our vision for the perfect wedding experience. We had an engagement photo shoot prior to the wedding, which gave us an opportunity to explore and develop our personal style. Sandra was fun, helpful, and professional during the photo shoots, which allowed her to capture some truly amazing memories. We cannot recommend her highly enough; our experience was everything we could have hoped for!
Sandra did an excellent job. Her photographs are very beautiful, and she was never obtrusive while taking them, whether at the ceremony or during the reception. We had to leave the church quite soon after the ceremony ended. Without seeming rushed, she managed to take a large number of family portraits for us in a limited space of time. She's a talented professional. I highly recommend her.
Sandra was wonderful to work with! She was always available to answer questions and put us at ease from the beginning of the process through our wedding day. But more than just being easy to work with, Sandra made us and our wedding party comfortable during pictures. She helped coach us when we weren't sure what to do, and we have some amazing pictures (posed and candid) to show for it.
We had a very unique venue, and we were very pleased with Sandra's flexibility with regard to the pictures we wanted and the special use we wanted to make with the venue itself. She took an extrordinary amount of pictures in the time allotted. Sandra put together a great plan and took many different photos of the shots we wanted. We found her to be very professional and a really great value!!! We will recommend her.
Best Decision EverReviewed on 12/13/2015 Meg S
Sandra was nothing short of amazing throughout the entire wedding process. She was the first "piece of the puzzle" and we just knew-before we even had a solid date or a venue. Getting great photos and having a photographer we clicked with was really important to us. It was something I was super worried about, but as soon as I read her knot profile and looked at her website I had a good feeling! From our first meeting to our engagement photos to the big day and our after party- Sandra was a joy to work with. The photos are spectacular and truly captured the emotion of the day. On top of all of this, Sandra was also an amazing sound board and I never felt silly asking her advice on timelines/locations/shots. She really helped pull things together. There were a few bumps along the way (it wouldn't be a wedding season without them) but Sandra made all that stuff easy. My only regret is that some rain cut out group session short, as we were having such fun. She made rolling with things a breeze, even rain!!
Photographic Excellence!Reviewed on 10/23/2015 Charity L
Sandra photographed our engagement pictures and our 09/19/2015 wedding. She was wonderful! I enjoyed spending time with Sandra; she is quirky, funny, easy-going and flexible. It is easy to see that she loves her job. She shoots beautiful, natural photos and has the talent of capturing those small, special moments that could so easily be missed on a wedding day. Sandra is smart and utilizes her allotted time well. Our wedding party had been together on a party bus and when we arrived at the Botanical Gardens, instead of meeting just inside, everybody took off. Scattered like dust in the wind! As the hectic search ensued to gather everyone back together, Sandra stayed by my side. She realized we would not have luck in reorganizing the group any time soon. With a sinking feeling, I realized this as well. So Sandra, keen as she is, looks directly at me and says "Well how about we shoot some bridal portraits?" We sure did, and I am thrilled she offered this opportunity because I'll have beautiful pictures to cherish for years to come. She did the same right before the ceremony, while the groom and I were trying to stay out of view as guests arrived. She shot some beautiful bride and groom portraits - these are some of my favorite shots! Basically, if you're a fan of extremely well-priced photos, a fun, chill, talented photographer, and beautiful photographs, Sandra is your lady! If it doesn't interest you, then you have probably stumbled upon this page by accident. Sandra is wonderful and I highly recommend her!
AmazingReviewed on 1/06/2014 Zach P
Before our engagement shoot, I didn't understand why my fiance was so picky about our photographer. I completely understand now. Sandra managed to make two people who are naturally awkward in front of a camera extremely comfortable, and somehow managed to make my always beautiful bride, even more breathtaking than normal. She even made me look halfway decent (something I thought was impossible). The engagement shoot was truly a wonderful experience.

I am a professional photographer with five years' wedding experience. I'm also a wife, mom of twin boys, fit-ish junkie, and lover of Netflix. My goal as a photographer is not just to take pretty pictures. My goal is to capture emotion, connection and who you really are. I'm out there to capture relaxed, candid, beautiful moments instead of overly posed or cookie cutter imagery.
