Please help-Digital Memories-love or hate?

Recommended Posts

I know there are a couple positive reviews regarding this company and I looked at their website as well as the slide shows. I don't want to offend anyone at all...but some of them seem very "posed" and they seem to use the same poses with a lot of couples. I'm also not a fan of the music slide shows they offer. Anyone want to chime in with their experience? Love, hate, or somewhere in between? This is the only photography option offered to me by the resort without flying in a photographer.

I have seen several raves on here of brides who used Digital Memories and loved them...I considered using them, as they are very affordably, but decided against it for the reasons you stated. I wanted my wedding pics to be more candid and true to the feel of the wedding. I think it comes down to personal taste and what you want out of your wedding pics. If you aren't thrilled by their sample pics you saw, I wouldn't go with them, because your pictures will be very similar! Good luck!!

I had never heard of them before, but I looked at the website and I see what you are saying. I don't know what your budget is.. but my photographer was AWESOME and affordable even though he had to travel.

Here is his website if you want to take a look at his work. Also a link to my pictures from him in is my signature.

 

It is worth checking into other photographers if you arent happy with the one that the resort provides for you.

Mallory57- You are right. I think that most photographers are going to put their best pictures on the website, so you prob can't expect a different feel for your pictures.

 

Kat- Your pictures are beautiful! I think I will send him an email just to see what he can offer! Did you do a TTD session with him?

I didnt do a TTD with him, but he does have a few of the recent ones that he has done on his website right now! And I see you are in Bend, Oregon. Another good thing about Nate is that he lives in Portland. If you wanted to meet him, you can. I know that it would be a drive but it might put your mind at ease. We got to meet up with him over Christmas (when I was home.. since I am from Portland) and it was GREAT

Kat- I emailed him but it was a little over budget for me. There is a definite advantage to being able to meet a photographer face-to-face though! Portland is great-awesome that you are from there!

 

NikkiT-Thanks!

Thats too bad that he is over your budget. I thought he was very reasonable compared to the others that I emailed. But he did launch a new site and stuff so maybe he raised him prices some.

 

There are some that my wedding planner recommended that I can get you links to as well if you would like :)

I used Diana Campbell from Digital Memories and was happy with what I got. They're very affordable and very friendly. I suppose it depends in the person you are. I personally don't care if we had the same pictures as other couples, I'm going to be looking at my pictures not theirs. They took the pictures we wanted at the locations we wanted. They took us themselves to the lighthouse and then to the Mayfield Falls for more pictures. We love the friendly feeling that we get from the people of Jamaica every time we go and we got this from them. Not upright photographers. We are a laid back couple that wanted nice pictures for a reasonable price. If that fits you then you should do it!

Amy were you able to get a wedding album (or parent album) with your photography package with Digital Memories? Also how long did it take to receive your pics?

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
