You make the memories, we beautifully preserve them.
You only get one shot at a wedding, so go with someone you can trust to preserve those precious moments. The Schiffman Photography Company is a professional photography company servicing the Central Virginia area. We offer a wide range of photographic services from weddings, location photography and product photography to corporate events and model portfolios. Our professional and creative work reflects a long history behind the camera and an ability to create some of the most sought after imagery at a reasonable price. A detailed eye and a long history of success makes The Schiffman Photography Company a clients number one choice in all areas of our industry.
I've used them to photograph a few of our outdoor events. The photos they took were great. Just as clear as could be and the colors popping out at you. One of the things that helps is just to talk with them before hand and let them know exactly what you want or are looking for. They will capture that and also get creative to get those shots you normally wouldn't. I know at times they may have had some issues with the print lab they were using but I believe they have taken care of that matter. These guys work hard and stay very busy. Hopefully they can get some more help in that can handle the busy work schedule. Look forward to working with these guys again.
Do not hire this company! They are extremely unprofessional and unreliable. We hired them to photograph our wedding and not only did they repeated fail to meet us at pre-wedding planning events but they basically extorted us to pay more money for the event that they contracted to photograph.
Specifically, on the day of wedding, they emailed my wife, the bride and told her that they wouldn't show up unless she paid them an extra $800 because they claimed that our payment was late even though we had agreed to make the rest of the payment at a later date. We paid them because, being the day of the wedding there was no way for us to hire another photographer.
To add insult to injury, Joe Schiffman has treated me with great disrespect throughout the whole process. Here is an excerpt from an email that he sent me, "Your images are being provided to you in RAW format (those are the ones we open in our software that costs us 1400 a year to maintain and upgrade each time a new version comes out). You've been provided all the services, images, and disks with all your images. What you do with them is up to you. Any images you see on those disks with your free preview software are called jpeg files. They are the printable files that we have opened, converted, and/or edited already and will not spend any more time on this already significant waste of time. My staff has been informed NOT to respond to you calls, EMAILS ONLY if there is any reason at this point for you to contact us other than to get the final word in this conversation over to us which I'm sure is what you will need to do as your unable to speak to any of our staff throughout your wedding, reception, and following your wedding. We have COMPLETED ALL aspects of our agreements with you and will no longer spend time, money, labor, expenses, or anything else no matter the terminology on this matter."
Save yourself a massive headache and do NOT do business with these people.
Looks like Joe Schiffman got some of his friends to write fake positive reviews....
Again, do not use these folks, they are scam artists. They will nickle and dime you for everything and they are extremely unprofessional amateurs. See my review herein.
It's hard to reccomend a photographer because I never get to see the end result, but I could see that these folks took a lot of photos without being in everyone's way. They captured the moment, while allowing it happen naturely.
