I'm writing this review close to three years after our experience with AER Photography, that's how mad I am at myself for not doing more research. We were married at Southernmost on the Beach, and Alicia was one of the few photographers that was on the approved vendor list. I ended up going with her because I liked what I saw on her website. There were several alarms that I should have heeded, though. She was terribly unresponsive after I booked her, and when she did respond it was gruff and almost rude. I told her I had a couple ideas for pictures and her response was "I guarantee whatever your idea is, I've already seen it." I forgot to keep a copy of the signed contract and asked her to mail me a copy. She ignored me. Finally my wedding coordinator was able to get a copy for my records. The day of, I thought I would have pretty detail shots of me getting ready with my bridesmaids - just like I saw on the website. The fallback of having a single photographer was that she could only be in one place at a time. Before the wedding she was with the groomsmen. There is not a single picture of my hair, makeup, me getting into my dress. The couple of 'portraits' she did of me and the girls in the meeting room we'd reserved include an exit sign above my head. These are details that shouldn't have been missed and I'm still so upset over it. The photos from the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception (no shots of the food, or many of our guests) are poor in quality/composition and color, and hadn't been retouched (I'm not talking 'make me skinny', I'm talking 'make me not shiny'). I was especially disappointed with the reception shots after the sun set - many of the pictures are completely blurry and not in an artistic way. I was stunned at the quality delivered. Stunned. If I had to do it over again I absolutely would not hire Alicia and I would be sure the photographer I did hire had a second shooter with them.

I had a destination wedding in Key West, FL. The photographer was booked through Margaret/Peg/Peggy Russell with keywestweddingchapel. What a disaster! Not one picture was print quality and I will have to recreate the event in hopes to get better photos. Blurred, over exposed, shadows, poor angles, no hair picts, no ring picts, pict of cake had huge smudge, 50% had closed eyes of either the groom or bride...all details a professional would recognize. When photos received they were unedited and complete trash. The note on the cd envelope stated the picts could be edited through some software the average person does not have. I had a 4 yr old in the ceremony that she was clearly aggravated with. She was quick as another review stated...picts done in 20 minutes...I guess that's why we received the quality we received. Money was never an issue as my huband and I are both doctors...we paid the set price the coordinator stated. It almost seemed as if the photographer was called in at the last minute and angry. A HUGE DISSAPOINTMENT! Research, Research, Research to avoid the same dissapointment.
