Sam was wonderful to work with! I absolutely LOVE all my wedding photos, including engagement and bridal portraits as well. Our photos had that artistic touch that I dreamt of. I couldnt be any happier, sam captured so many beautiful moments throughout our special day!Sent on 06/23/2010

My wedding day went well and I'm overall happy with all of my vendors EXCEPT this one. This is the ONLY vendor I was highly disappointed with. I'll break down my review in the 3 categories listed.Sent on 04/08/2013
Quality of Service
Sam tends to add effects that are not realistic and looks retarded. Also, when we book him, we were going to choose him for our video only but he convinced us to sign a contract with him for photo as well. He said he can take creative pictures similar to magazines, but that totally is not what we received. I almost coughed up a few more grand to hire a new photographer. You would think for 5K, you would get better quality, but I guess not with Sam.
Before the wedding and before we paid off the full amount of the contract, which is due on the wedding day, Sam is very responsive. But after he runs off with your money, give him up to 3 months to respond to one little email asking him for a status of your photo album. It took ONE WHOLE YEAR to finally get our albums. I had to set a reminder to send him an email once a week and just hope he responds. Sometimes you have to go to his store and talk directly to his wife and niece in order for him to finally respond to you. I would give him a negative rating if it's possible for this one.
I don't see anything professional about him. If he mails you anything, he'll send it short of postage in a repackaged yellow envelope (you can tell it was used for something else and he taped white paper over it to reuse) and you have to cough up the different at the post office to pick up your item. I can write a book about this category, but I think the first statement I made gives you a pretty good idea of how professional he is.

my wedding was very well but it has been three years now since the day i got married and still haven't seen a wedding picture. gave him over 10 referrals before my wedding date that also signed contracts with him and they have yet to receive any pictures either. this is horrible don't ever contact this man for any service you will be very very dissapointed. looking into putting a lawsuitSent on 02/25/2014

I just celebrated my 1 year anniversary last month and I have yet to receive the Photo Book that was included in my wedding photography package. After several months of following up with Sam who continually told me they were working on it I still have never received my album. Not only that, but he decided to no longer return any correspondence from either my husband or myself. This photography company is a joke. I paid a lot of money for wedding photos and I have nothing to show for it except unedited, poor quality pictures on cds. Buyer beware is an understatement.Sent on 05/17/2012
