PERFECT.

We had the pleasure of working with Billy for our Engagement, Bridal, and Wedding photos. After our first meeting we knew he was punctual, professional, and exceptionally talented. He made my mother in law and I feel very welcome and comfortable in all aspects. He loves his job and it shows in his work. Every session we had he made it very clear that he would go above and beyond for us and the shot we wanted. My husband HATES taking photos but with Billy he never complained he even said it was fun and couldn't wait to see how the photos came out. Billy is also very efficient, every session we had we needed the photos rushed for different occasions.... Billy had the back to me within a few days. You can call him or text him at any time and he always answered or got right back with me in the same day.

Also my family is huge, loud, and sometimes hard to deal with... Billy had no problem coordinating everyone and eveything in a timely manner so that we could maximize our time at the reception. All I am saying is when are needing perfection in a photographer Billy is your guy!!!!!

I cannot even BEGIN to express my gratitude to Billy and his team at Agaba Studios for making our wedding day absolutely WONDERFUL. From the first time that I sat down with Billy, I had no doubt that she completely understood my style, and the type of pictures that I wanted to capture. I typically do not like photos of myself, and so my goal for our engagement shoot was to get just ONE picture that I liked. Billy surpassed all of my wildest hopes, and I loved ALL of our pictures.
Fast forward to our wedding day – I cannot tell you how amazing Billyand his assistant were on our wedding day. Agaba Studios are not just photographers – they are wedding experts! They know just what to say and do at the right time to ensure that everything runs smoothly! I felt like a model on our wedding day, and all of our family and friends cannot stop commenting on the photos. Several of my friends that have already been brides themselves have told me that they are completely jealous of our wedding photos. 
I found Billy the same way you are right now – through reading various reviews on wedding websites. I can tell you right now – hands down, Agaba Studios was the BEST decision I could have ever made. You will not be disappointed – I would highly recommend Billy and his staff to ANYONE!

Billy has been great with our engagement photos and wedding photos. What ever we wanted he made it happen. I wanted photos in the medical center and Billy researched the area and found us great locations. I also wanted rustic country shots at our ranch and Billy's eye was right on. He sees locations and props that you would think "Really?" but when the pictures come out you will be presently surprised! Brides, my fiancé does not like taking photos but Billy was very patient and professional and worked with him so that I got all the photos I wanted and he spent minimal time in front of the camera.

Agaba Studios met with us to work out a package that kept us within our budget while giving us all that we desired from a wedding photographer. Billy traveled to the sites that we desired for our engagment sessions without charging us any additional costs of gas or mileage and produced some stunning images that we will treasure for years to come.

We loved Billy the moment we met him- he is extremely friendly, knowledgeable and also exudes a wonderful calm confidence. We had no idea how much that would come in handy- we got married in Houston at a venue that was intended to be outdoors during one of those August hot humid days. Billy got there hours early to scope out the site and found some amazing locations for the shoot. He is very professional and a delight to work with. The photos are absolutely beautiful and he did a lovely job of capturing the evening. We loved working with him and would highly recommend him to any couple looking for a photographer in the Texas.

I LOOOOVED my experience with Agaba Studios!!!! Billy was professional but warm and personable. He was super flexible and took whatever ideas we had and made them extraordinary! We were able to tell him what we wanted and it was never a problem to get it done. Between the 2 engagement shoots and the wedding day we have TONS of special memories for years to come! Our pictures were absolutely gorgeous and I can't imagine I would have found a better photographer. Also, Billy focuses a lot on the family shots on the wedding day which is a huge plus!! The only reason we didn't have even more pics is because between Billy and the videographer my husband was a bit over the camera :-)

Billy is now the BEST photographer we know of. Our house is well decorated with admirable family portraits from his wonderful ingenuity. During our wedding, Billy captured all the important moments that we barely remember, and beyond our expectations. It was wonderful and we are thankful. The retouch of stress blemishes that we had on that day were taken off. Billy has since become not only our family photographer, but also our parents’ friend. They appreciate and admire his exceptional skills. Billy is now our first choice in photography. We will always invite him to cover our functions.

Billy is strongly passionate about what he does and it does show in his work. he took our engagement pictures and they turned out great. He will go an extra mile to make sure that your pictures turn out the way the should. Also, he is willing to travel to the site you want to take your pictures.

If you want your big day to be memorable do not waste your money and use this guy, he hasn't got a clue what he is doing, totally inexperienced. He was a nightmare. On the wedding day I couldn't see this guy capturing any of the moments he was suppose to, he was always in the wrong place and when he was in the right place the pictures were of a poor quality. I had pics where people were clearly not ready as they wasn't even looking at the cam, I had parts of the bridal party cut off, I can go on the list is endless. If you look at his website you would think you we're getting a true professional, DON'T BE FOOLED. I should have been suspicious when he mentioned my wedding was his only booking in a 9 month window, good photographers are booked almost every week. We had so many problems with this guy leading up to the wedding, from Canvasses not arriving on time to his unresponsiveness. Very difficult guy to work with. I would never recommend this guy, he was really bad.

If you are reading this response, thank you for making it all the way to the bottom of this review. There are always two sides to every story. Rather than try to dispute all of the points Mr. Bola has made, all I ask is that you look at all the other reviews we have.
I do not find the review to be truthful in any way and I hope the other reviews have you doubting the validity of this complaint.

I would like to offer anyone the option to view Mr. bola's wedding in the "Wedding Gallery” of our website at www.agabastudios.com. The gallery is entitled "Siju and Bola." I truly believe the images speak for themselves. Thank you.
