I also came on here to check out the reveiws on them. I actually really like the how their pictures look so crisp! and artistic .. i just think that it might be too good to be true the price for 8 hours of photography is the best i have seen. If it helps They are a preferred vendor at the venue im getting married at in long beach. Cathy or cordinator indicated that she has been using them for years and no bride has ever complained. I told her that they didnt have great reveiws on the internet. but she pretty much bet her life on them.. that they are great! I have already emailed them im hoping to meet up wilth them soon.. please let me know what you hear from them.

The blog pics are too small to be useful IMO.  If you look at the images on their website they don’t appear to be as crisp and flaws show (like shadows on the wall from on camera flash,etc).  Pretty good price though if you like them in person and like their work.

I would question their professionalism since their rates are far too low for wedding photography. When I looked at photographers I looked at the whole package and that was something that was important to me. Someone who has faith and time invested in their talent would surely charge more for their work. That is just my opinion.

Best.

@KarenArnold322012: I wouldn’t necessarily say that. I’ve seen photographers who have low prices and still do GREAT work.

With that being said, I feel like the pricing is equal to their quality of work. The pictures were just decent pictures. They do look a little photoshopped, but I’ve seen worse. If you like them, go for it.

I think it depends on where they are at in their business. I have seen recent art student graduates who have amazing portfolios but have only done 2 small weddings and are charging $800. They don’t have any of the costs that a full time pro has. Someone who has been doing photography for a long time, has talent, has business overhead, has a demand for their work, ect is not going to charge low prices. They wouldn’t make any money. How would they keep their business up if they are only charging $500 for a wedding? I think that’s what Karen was trying to say. Someone who knows that they are good and is doing this on a pro level isn’t going to charge a crazy low amount that a student or someone just starting out would charge.

That being said, I can’t even tell you about this photographer. FLASH is required for their website and I’m not at work. Without FLASH, their blog looks wonky and all I see is a very very tiny photo. If I was still looking for a photographer, I would have skipped them because of this.

There is definitely a lot of photoshop going on, and I see some issues with lighting (flash shadows, blown highlights, etc) which worries me. Have you decided what to do?

I just can’t get past the harsh flash lighting that they have on a lot of their images.  To me it just shows that their lighting skills are lacking.

 

But on the other hand, they are cheap, so you get what you pay for I guess.
