  • I was out of town when planning my wedding so I relied quite a bit on websites. I based my decision on pictures that were on the website. I really liked when I could see a good sampling from one wedding because I felt like anyone can take 100 pictures and end up with one good one so I felt better when I could see that all the pictures or at least most from one event were good. I also looked for websites that had pricing listed because I didn't want to waste time asking over and over only to find out someone was too expensive. I also made sure to go with someone who would let me have the digital negatives and copyright.

  • We hired her based on reviews on Weddings.com. She was great until it came time to process the photos and present us with the finished product. Then it became a HUGE problem. I didn't get my "professional" photos from my November 24th wedding until after Valentines day.

    Needless to say, I had to go back to the original website that I found her on and give her a somewhat negative review.

  • I wanted an inexpensive photographer with lots of experience. I hired this little old couple to shoot our wedding. They didn't put the photos online, but they were digital. I wasn't terribly interested in all the fancy stuff or extras, so I was really happy with what I got.
