we were mariried at athe hemingway house last year. We even paid for extra time. the video was great. However the pictures were a huge disappointment. i even emailed Gail and told her I was disappointed with the pictures. her focus was she was removing the sweat stains from my husband suit. the quality of the pictures where good. However, there were no good pictures of the ring, none by the wall of hemkingway house. not one good picture of the two of us. The only decent ones where of family, group pictures, $6000 waiste of money. My brother in law took better photos. and so did my daughters 18 year old friend. Last but not least, when received the 300 pictures I paid for, they where placed in the album, not in order.. Very disappointed. She talks a good story, but doesntdeliver. 13 proof pictures of my dress hanging on the hanger. 6 pictures of my shoes. 6 pictures of my dog. We had to choose 300, and couldnt even come up with 100. They say they take 1000, they do, but they are all duplicates. I finally had my daughter pick the 300 pictures because it make me ill to have to look at them. I would not recommend these people. The show up on tiem. and last but not least. she went to the hemingway house to wait for me, and was not there when the limo arrived, so didnt get any pictures coming out of the limo. Would not recomment these people at all.

Gail and her husband were wonderful to work with; our pictures turned our great! For our Pittsburgh reception (which was 3 weeks after we got married in Key West), I needed a picture for a "picture frame guest book" and Gail took time out of her busy schedule to find a phenominal picture, touch it up and send it to me in time for my reception! I was very pleased with their work and would recommend Abracadabra Productions to anyone!
