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.
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!!!This is the subjective opinion of an independent reviewer and not of Decidio, Inc.
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!!!
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!This is the subjective opinion of an independent reviewer and not of Decidio, Inc.
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!
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.
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!!!This is the subjective opinion of an independent reviewer and not of Decidio, Inc.
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!This is the subjective opinion of an independent reviewer and not of Decidio, Inc.
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.This is the subjective opinion of an independent reviewer and not of Decidio, Inc.
