Please let me know your thoughts….

I wouldnt do it. We originally hired them for photography and did e-pics with the photog. They were awful looking even though the stuff in her portfolio had been good. We fired her and get a different, better, photographer. In addition, it will cost extra for B&W photos and re-touching. All pictures will come to you raw
We did use them for DJ services and our DJ sucked!! He didnt play any of the songs we had requested – I had sent him a list of about 50 songs several weeks before our wedding and said if he didnt have some of the songs to let me know and I could provide them. Well he said he had all the songs but didnt play a single one. He also forgot all of our special dances songs but luckily I had brought a CD with those songs on it because I had a bad feeling. Lastly, he performed a spontaneous break dance in the middle of our reception and it was awful.

They are a large company similar to the pros. They farm out their jobs to people just entering the business or work for them to cover their unbooked weekends. We have had three couples hire us after their “the pro” bailed on them to shoot a wedding for themselves. These photogs are usually hired for only a few hundred dollars to shoot the wedding all day, they don’t bond with their clients and honestly it’s just showing up for another day of work for them. If they mess up, it’s on the company not them. They get paid and walk away.
If photos are important to you, I recommend hiring a smaller studio where you know who you are working with and have a stake in the quality they are giving you.

I have heard nothing but bad things about them across various review sites. I would definitely consider someone else.
