        Thanks for your honest review. Although the poses may look silly and were not what you were going for, you should know that you were a BEAUTIFUL bride :)

            This guy sounds terrible! I contacted him when I was searching for a photographer and had a weird feeling about the wording in his email so I never responded. Good thing for me I guess. I am waiting for the photos from the photographer that I used, Martha Roque, but I must say, she was a total sweetheart!

              i have had many vendors threaten legal action against me and the forum for reviews made by other people but luckily the forum is protected by law from these types of lawsuits.
              Oh yes I knew that, I did not mean to suggest you were going to take it down. I meant if ever the bride gets harassed by the vendor to the point where she asks for it to be taken down as has happened with several other negative reviews in the past (hope it doesn't come to that). In that case it would be good to have a copy of the review saved to pass it on to other brides.

                I would not had hired a videographer if I wasn't wanting to use my lost deposit. I am so happy I did. I love having a video.

                  Oh no! I'm so sorry! This was another thing I was worried about in posting a negative review...
                  But Morgan's idea sounds wonderful! It may have not been in your original plans to get a videographer, but honestly, I think you're better off swinging that kind of deal, where your deposit goes to a videographer, than having him be your photographer.
                  Had I known how bad it would actually be, I would have given up the $1000 or so we'd already paid in deposits!

                  This is REALLY good to know! I worry every time I open my home e-mail account now that I'll have a nasty e-mail from him or his company... hasn't happened (yet) though :)

                  Seriously... you have all made me feel much better... I think just writing it all down made me feel better too :-)

                    Wow... Thanks for the review; I do sympathize you. One of the most important days of your life ruined by a photographer. Its a good thing your guests were taking photos as well, so at least you can still get some photos from them.

                      Oh my Gosh, I'm so sorry for your experience!! The last thing you need on your wedding day is someone like that to stress you out on YOUR day! Thank you so much for posting this review, in doing so you have probably saved many many brides from having to go through what you had to go through!
