When Jan called me on the phone and asked if he could send me a video to review I accepted. He was very cordial and polite. I signed a contract with him to shoot my October 29, 2011 wedding and placed a deposit.
I later called him to ask if we could revise the contract because I was in a difficult financial bind. I asked if perhaps he could just shoot the ceremony instead of both the ceremony and reception. He was rude and abrupt. He told me to fire my photographer and just use him because he was live action. He additionally told me to go to my parents for more money.
Obviously, I was saddened by the response and angry. I told my fiancé about what had happened so my fiancé called to discuss this behavior. Jan did not return the phone call for over a week. When we called him back, he became a used car salesperson with this strong-armed approach about how we were throwing away our memories and again asked why we did not ask our families for more money. My fiancé explained to him immediately that we did not want his services and that we would happily take the loss of the deposit.

On Wednesday before my Saturday wedding Jan called me to ask what had happened. How had I moved from being so excited about his services to not wanting to do business with him? He had the gall to ask was it because my fiancé was involved? He explained that because I had not mailed the contract back with the word cancel on it, that he was still contractually obligated to shoot my wedding. He wanted to know what he could do to salvage this relationship. I let him know that he was rude, insulting, and abrasive that I did not appreciate his call at all.

The videos that Jan sent to our home were beautiful. I cried while watching them but I cannot in, good conscience, recommend this vendor.

Jan was extremely flexible and so easy to work with. We literally hired him the week of our wedding to be our videographer. I always wanted a videographer and my husband totally thought it'd be a waste of money. He has now changed his mind and is very happy we got a wedding video to capture everything we missed. On top of hiring Jan the week of, we threw more at him. We wanted to know if he could put together a slide show that we could show at the wedding. Well, he pulled it off. We dropped the digital files for the slide show on Friday and he had it ready for our wedding, which was on Sunday!!! We already got the video, too. We watched it and it was so sweet to see our parents on the dance floor and how happy they were. I think that alone made my husband think that it was money well spent.
