BRIDES BEWARE!!!! They are a scam!! I purchased their 6hr package (the smallest package which is still $1500) with an additional second photographer (plus $250) to cover my wedding. When I received my proofs back I was very disappointed with the shots. I felt that they captured the wedding very well in candid shots but did not get many posed shots of the bride and groom. I could not find one shot of me and the groom that I could use for my thank you cards out of 900 pictures. Altogether (not exaggerating) we only have 10 shots together and of the 10 only 5 were posed and 3 came out nice as far as smiles, but absolutely none that encompassed everything (dress, both smiling etc). When I approached Dave about it, he agreed that the shots were disappointing; however he blamed me for being late, stating that my timing was the reason for hi not getting the shots. There were no individual pictures of my bridesmaids and my groomsmen with the bridesmaids or my family. He never offered us the option of using the additional a la carte hours, he just went on like nothing was wrong and the final product was Terrible. DO NOT GO WITH THIS COMPANY : 1. You will be the total blame if they do not get capture all the moments, 2. They will not take any responsibility for anything except if they were late 3. You will be discriminated against if you buy the smallest package 4. Do not purchase the a la carte 2nd photographer, you are wasting your money if it is not a part of your package (they will only moonlight the 1st photographer) 5. You will not have enough bride and groom poses to use for anything later 7. You will not have many photographs to use in your wedding album if you are trying to do one outside of them (lots of candid photos of randomness) 8. They will make your wedding party feel very uncomfortable if things are not going by their schedule. 9. You will be sorry if the wedding runs behind with time (like many weddings do) they will use that against you. 10. You will not be offered a la carte hours if time is running out (you will just get what you get) 11. They will lie to cover their mistakes; very arrogant spirit (not initially but if something does not come out well) 12. If you are Black please proceed with caution, they are partial.
