    That is so sad. I mean pics are probably the most important at a wedding. You have a right to vent and warn other brides. I hope there are some pics that you like for your memories. You were a very pretty bride, though!

      wow- I can't believe that guy. what nerve! thank you for your honest and candid review. It information like that that is the best part of this forum! pitfalls to avoid, and vendors that do outstanding work. Your photographer falls into the first category. I won't be getting a quote from that guy! Take comfort in the fact that you are helping so many other brides! and I agree with an earlier post- take those photos to a professional and see if they can photoshop them into shot you want to out into your album.

        Sorry you had to deal with such a tool. You were very proactive about what was important to you and your dh but this guy just didnt seem to care. Seems like he's on some kind of power trip. I hope your able to salvage more pics and make a really great album. Like Abbie suggested i would look into what Sarah can do. Her albums look really nice and she might be able to work with some pics that you dont think are usable. I'm so glad you posted an honest review to warn b2bs about this jerk.

          Yeah, I was seriously considering booking him too a while back.

          When he found out that our wedding was at the Moon Palace, I got an email saying "the Moon Palace doesn't allow outside photographers. You should really do some research before you ask questions."

          I was like....NEVERMIND!

          What an awful experience. I probably would have fired him on the spot. Are you getting any of your money back? I know I would try to!

          At least you and your DH look great in the photos, even if they aren't exactly what you wanted. I'm sure you can find someone to doctor them up for you. And, maybe when you have the funds, you could do a second TTD somewhere closer to home, or on an anniversary to make up for it!

            Thank you for posting this. I'm so sorry for your horrible experience. I was considering booking him before, but I chose to go with Luckie Photography instead. I have an upcoming wedding June 26th. I JUST had Michael email me yesterday (before I read your post) asking if I was still interested. He informed me that another bride was requesting his services for the same day! I REALLY hope the other JUNE 26TH bride is on here and read's you post before she sends in her deposit.

              I'm SO SORRY! He sounds completely awful, I would have been so disappointed if I had hired him. When I was looking for a photographer I had contacted him, but couldn't find any reviews here about him, and ended up going with someone else, whose style I liked better. My husband gave me a hard enough time about spending money for a photographer, I can't imagine what he would have said if we hired this guy!

              Thank you for posting an honest review I really think it will help future brides.

                      Oh my gosh, I am hearing SO many stories now!

                      We're not even going to BOTHER trying to ask for any money back... We just want to be DONE with him and his company! But I like your idea of an anniversary TTD shoot! Good excuse to go somewhere hot and sunny again:-)

                      Oh, and thanks everyone for the suggestion of contacting Sarah...I sent her an e-mail and will wait to hear what she says:-)
