Not worth it. I almost always had to leave multiple voice mails before hearing back from Allan, and he rarely called me back when he said he would. He is funny...if you don't mind hearing the same 10 rude and inappropriate jokes over and over all day. He outright insulted several of my relatives with his "jokes." He was condescending and rude half the day, and disinterested for the rest of it. He ignored my list of requested photographs, and wasted a lot of time standing around on his phone and making his ridiculous jokes. One of the members of my bridal party ended up directing everyone on how to pose for photos and telling him when we were ready for him to take a picture, because he wasn't doing it. And when he did direct people himself, he used noises and hand motions, not words. We kept having to ask him what he meant, and ask him to use words not noises, but he ignored those requests. He also spent most of our reception hanging out in another room and could never be found when we looked for him. Thank god we had paid for a second photographer, at least he was around. In the end we got some good pictures (after hounding him for months and catching him in multiple lies about why they weren't done yet) but the number of pictures I would have liked that we DON'T have is a lot longer than the number of pictures I like that we DO have. A lot of the pictures are also taken at weird angles, or will need a lot of photoshopping to fix the lighting and cover up things that could have been left out of the picture if Allan had spent just a few seconds paying attention to how he was framing the photographs. (Some problems being obvious spot lights and garbage cans in outdoor shots, piles of belongings and elevators featured in the background of indoor shots.) I knew that I would have to pay attention to to what the photographer was doing to a certain extent, if I wanted certain things, but I didn't expect to have to have a friend literally tell him what to do.

Very difficult and disinterested. Almost everyone found him incredibly annoying to deal with. Pictures are ok, but not that great. Often very hard to contact as well. Seemed great at our first meeting, but one of the things everyone remembers the most about our wedding seems to be "the bonkers photographer", and refers to him as the thing that went wrong, since everyone has to have one thing go wrong at their wedding.

I loved many of the pictures I got ack from my wedding. Some pictures were not taken that I would have liked, so communication is key. That was my fault for not articulating the shots that were important. Overall I was happy with the result.

Allan Reider Studio did my wedding photo's THey were AMAZING. SO creative, great shots. They captured every important moment of our day. and even some moments that were unexpected. Although in the mid range of the pricing that we looked at, it was worth the money well spent.
