My husband and I were married in October of 2013. Honestly, it went off without a hitch. The weather cooperated, I learned to let the little things go, the food was amazing, all of our family and friends were there, and then there were the photographers. First of all, they were spotty on communication before the wedding, but I chalked that up to them being “artists” and a bit looser with scheduling. They showed up on the wedding day, as they said they would. I had paid in full prior to the wedding, as required according to the contract we signed. In November we reached out to get the family images for Christmas gifts. She got them to us two weeks before Christmas, needless to say, that was not enough time. And unfortunately that was the LAST time we heard from her (or her partner). They will not respond to calls, texts, emails, Facebook messages, etc. We do not have our wedding pictures, however, they have our money and our wedding photos. The photographers went under the name The Studio 32, based out of Plymouth, Massachusetts. The female photographer was Tiffany Williams and the male photographer was Jay LuBlang. Both of them have their own side companies running and BOTH are using our wedding photos to promote their business, however, they never held up their end of the contract. Please, please, please do not work with these people. <br />I was a laid back bride. I didn’t fuss over too much, everything was elegant but simple. I honestly never thought I could be so upset about not getting pictures, but I cannot express my frustration and disappointment. And to be honest, it gives me nightmares that we will never get our wedding pictures and these people will go on ripping off more people. (Even having to turn to blogs and speaking negatively about them is upsetting to me.)
A word of advice for future brides- negotiate the final payments. Had I done this, I could have withheld payment until receipt of the pictures. At this point, we have no professional pictures of our wedding and they took thousands of dollars from us.
