About Lou

Lou, owner & founder of Ravetta Photography, instantly found a passion in photography after purchasing his first camera! What started off as a hobby, photographing weddings for family & friends, turned into a life-long career with his wife, Karen. The two met in high school and later decided to combine their skills, following graduation, to form their own company.

With Lou’s photographic skills, and Karen’s love for art, they were able to create outstanding portraits from the start! Throughout the years they’ve improved their skills by constantly learning and taking part in local organizations. Lou served as President of the Greater St. Louis Photographers and is still an active member. He is also a member of both PPA of America and Missouri.

As a photographer, his natural ability to “capture the moment” has brought well over 40 years of success. When he’s not keeping everyone at the studio busy, he takes every chance he gets to travel & enjoy time with his wife, and their family!
