    Review This Vendor

    Terrible...go to Yelp and read all the filtered reviews. He is HORRIBLE!

    Nicole, Moreno Valley, CA, October 18, 2013

    This guy is horrible and ruined my wedding day. He has a response for every negative review so I went with him, but I should have listened to the nay sayers. Really bad service and I am so sad he made my day horrible.


    Vendor response: After reviewing our wedding client contracts, over the past 5 years, we have had no wedding clients named "Nicole" or any wedding clients from "Moreno Valley, CA." Since anybody can post a review for any reason on this website, it is impossible for us to respond to any fictitious "client." We will happily provide any potential client, a long list of recent wedding client referrals and many sample client photos of recent events. Please contact us at either 877-474-4334 or 951-970-0853 if we can answer any questions you may have and give us an opportunity to prove ourselves to you. Thank you so much for putting a "review" like this one in proper perspective.

    Fantastic Wedding Photographer!

    Janet P, Corona, CA, August 17, 2013

    My husband and I were so impressed with Chris that we wanted to write this review. Our wedding day at the Edwards Mansion in July 2013 couldn't have gone any smoother! His professionalism and knowledge of how to pose brides, our families, and our wedding party was so amazingly brought out in our beautifully and artistically composed wedding photos. I want to let everyone know that Chris is the REAL DEAL and he gave us wonderful memories through our photographs that we will cherish forever!!!

    FIND SOMEONE ELSE!!

    My daughter was married in September and we hired this man to be her photographer our choice to use him was because of his creative samples he had presented to us during our meeting. Huge mistake!!! On the day of the wedding he made it difficult for her to get ready, not allowing her into the room for almost a hour, once she was able to come in he ordered her and her bridal party around, he had my daughter in tears. During the service he was all over the stage distracting my guest from the service my husband tried to get him to stop as well as the chapel assistant but he still was all over the place. you would hope you would at least get good pictures from such a bad experience. Not the situation at all. He left the wedding almost immediately following the service to head to the reception facility. completely missing the limo arriving to pick up the couple. Upon arrival at the reception the photographer paid no attention to their arrival and a guest told him he needed to take pictures. He then had the party go to where my daughter had asked for some pictures to be taken it took him almost a hour for 3 different poses. that was all the formals that were taken, no family pictures were taken. I could go on about the horrible experience but i think you get the idea. WORST PHOTOGRAPHER EVER!!!


    Vendor response: The client (Kirsten Smith) was married at the Unity Valley Chapel in Hemet with a reception at the Country Club at Soboba Springs In September 2012. Before the wedding, I reviewed a detailed minute-to-minute photography itinerary with the bride which I followed on the wedding day. On the wedding day, I met with the chapel wedding coordinator, the bride and her family, and the minister to be briefed on the photographer protocols which I followed explicitly. They gave me no photography instructions which would limit my travel during the ceremony or anywhere else. According to the minister, wedding photographers and videographers routinely use the chapel's stage area for photographing the bride and groom unless told not to do so by the client. When the bride was getting ready, I spent about 1 hour and 30 minutes photographing her, and her bridal party as the client had agreed to. At no time did I hear any objections from her, her family, the minister, or anybody else until this review. After the ceremony, I followed the photography timeline that was agreed to by the bride and her family. Upon arrival to the reception venue, I photographed the bride and her wedding party exiting the limo (I can email proof of these photos upon request) and was given only 10 minutes to photograph the wedding party and the bride and groom alone before the grand entrance (the family decided not to be photographed). The bride had previously agreed to 1 hour of photography time before the reception for her family, wedding party, and bride/groom shots but since the wedding party and family arrived late to the golf course for their post-ceremony photos, the family made the decision not to take any photographs at all. I specifically asked for more time to photograph the family but the couple, the wedding party, and the family made the decision not to spend sufficient time to be photographed, not mine. As a result, the family have no family photos taken by me, and I can't be held responsible for their decision not to be photographed. If you have any further questions about this event, please call me at 951-970-0853. I will also email you samples from this wedding upon request.

    Loved their service!

    Jenny A., San Diego, CA, November 16, 2012

    I just read a couple of the comments posted about Chris and thought how we could've had the same photographer??? Chris was very organized, professional and courteous with everyone and gave us wonderful wedding memories through his photos. Our experience with him was that he really cared about our needs in every way and couldn't disagree more with a couple of the reviews posted here. We really loved his service and want to strongly recommend him!

    Really, really bad!

    This guy is terrible! He is unprofessional and arrogant and wants to control every aspect of your wedding. He thinks the wedding is about him and not the bride and groom. He doesn't listen and will ruin your wedding day. Trust me, don't hire him. He is not worth the $750 you will pay. Although his photo examples may be impressive, he will make your life hell on your special day. Stay away from Chris at All About You Photo and Video!


    Vendor response: This client Susan Dragoo (Rancho Palos Verdes) and Amber Myrick (Fallbrook) have posted numerous reviews in November 2012 about us that are slanderous with the purpose of destroying our business. They violated the terms of our photography agreement by hiring another professional wedding photographer without our consent to perform their wedding photography services. We found out about this breach from the client the day before the wedding event and since the client insisted upon using this other professional photographer at their event in violation of our exclusive photographer agreement with them, were forced to terminate our contract as a result of this violation. The client has threatened us with a lawsuit and has threatened to post an abundance of slanderous reviews about us on this website, YELP, and other websites in order to drive customers away from us. So far, there has been no lawsuit and we do not anticipate any, since it was the client who violated our contract by hiring another professional photographer for their event. We are very sorry that we were forced to publicly name the client in this matter but felt it necessary in order to protect our good reputation from any further damage. Please feel free to contact us directly at 951-970-0853 if we can answer any questions about this matter or if you have any concerns about our customer service. We can also provide you with numerous client references that will give you a more balanced review of our services. You can also leave us an email at allaboutyouphotoandvideo@yahoo.com and we will happily respond promptly to any concerns you may have. Please understand that this client intends to ruin our reputation and we feel obligated to rightly publicly defend ourselves. Thanks in advance for taking the time to consider the other side of this matter.

    Did Not Show Up- Horrible

    This guy Chris is a nightmare. He gave the bride, groom and myself, the mother of the groom, grief to the point of tears the day before the wedding and the morning of the wedding. He did not want to comply with the timeline and became extremely agitated. He said he needed 15 minutes between light changes and said if we wanted to stay with our timeline he would miss some shots when the bride and groom would be announced. After completely upsetting my son and the bride, my son told me to try to make him understand the timeline. I tried to accommodate his needs by telling him a friend at the wedding could help by covering the first indoor shots. He agreed that this was a solution to his problem the day before the wedding, however by the morning of the wedding he emailed my son and stated that due to a breech in contract he would not shoot the wedding and he would keep the deposit. We will be hiring an attorney at this point. Go to yelp and you will see that this guy is a real loser. Don't be fooled by some good reviews, this guy is truly a nightmare and to be avoided at all cost! Another clue is that this guy uses a blocked cell phone, very strange for a legitimate business.

    Best Wedding Photos Ever!

    Bonnie M., Tustin, CA, September 28, 2012

    We shopped around and wanted an affordable but professional wedding photographer for our wedding at the Tustin Ranch Golf Course on September 7, 2012. Chris was very patient and treated our family and friends with great respect and professionalism. When we received our wedding DVD, it blew our mind! His work is very artistic and captured every moment beautifully! We highly recommend All About You Photo and Video for your wedding or any event where you want great photos at a reasonable price.....Two thumbs way up!!!

    Fantastic Wedding Pictures!

    Andrew, Newport Beach, CA, May 15, 2012

    We just love the work they did for our wedding in Newport Beach on the Hornblower Yacht! Our wedding album and video from Chris and Alex at All About You Photo and Video was simply amazing! My best friend's wedding photographer charged her over $2,000.00 and didn't give her anywhere close to the photojournalistic style and artistic quality we received for less than $800.00 from Chris and Alex! You won't find a better photographer than Chris at any price so if you're looking to pay more, you're just throwing your money away!

    Loved their service!

    Stephanie Sherman, San Diego, September 11, 2011

    I got married in Ocean Beach and Chris did an amazing job. We got married back in February and I was unable to find anywhere to leave him reviews. It was hot while he was photographing our wedding, and he was so patient with having to deal with all the last minute details. Thank you Chris, I appreciate everything the photos (in black and white & color) are beautiful.
