I would not recommend Barnaby Draper to anyone. I didn't give him 0 stars just because I did like the engagement pictures and portraits from my wedding. The problem is with the videography. I have been married for 3 & 1/2 years now and I still haven't gotten my wedding videos. Well, to be clear, I did receive them, 8 months after my wedding, but they were just thrown together. So, we were asked to return them and they would be worked on. We did. Now, I can't get any response from anyone about them and I have no videos. My grandfather was singing to me on those video's and he has passed away. It would mean a great deal to me to get these videos back. At this point I don't even care if the quality is bad, I would just like to have some sort of videos to remember the most magical day of my life. Don't waste your money on something that is going to mean so much to you. There are many other photographers and videographers out there who will give you what you pay for.

Thank you for your feedback, I just wanted to let you know that in all of our video contracts, and agreement we state that it takes 3-4 months for the edit to be completed. The reason being, that our video editors spend at least 2 weeks edited each video. I have had a chance to check out your highlight clip and it looks beautiful!
Thank you,

I cannot express how happy and extremely pleased my husband and I are in our decision to have Barnaby Draper photograph our wedding. His calm and easygoing demeanor made him the greatest pleasure to work with. We truly enjoyed having him with us all day, both professionally and personally; what a delight he was !

Our pictures are fantastic and I cannot believe all the shots he captured. We are so happy with all of our pictures and cannot stop looking at them ! They are so fresh and exciting - exactly what we wanted !

I HIGHLY recommend Barnaby Draper Studios. Not only were Barnaby and his assistant so wonderful the day of our wedding, but his quick responsiveness to all of my questions and suggestions in the year leading up to the wedding were excellent.
Our photos were available for our viewing while we were still on our honeymoon and his colleagues are already working with us to select our photos and design our album...All in just a few short weeks...Their service has been exceptional and I am forever grateful to them for so beautifully capturing our special day.

Our experience working with Barnaby Draper Studios was excellent. The team was professional and incredibly comprehensive in the number and variation of shots they took. In addition, Barnaby and his team have great 'eyes' and took both standard shots but also identified opportunities to shoot pictures that were memorable and made the group look fantastic. I cannot recommend Barnaby Draper Studios more highly.

I have worked with Barnaby and his team on my wedding and my best friends wedding. He is also going to shoot my cousin's wedding in September '07. Obviously I feel strongly enough about the product to recommend him twice. His work speaks for itself. He has experience outside of wedding photography so this enables him to shoot in many ways that are outside of a "traditional wedding" portrait style. (of course he does those too if you so desire!) Everyone at the studio is professional and down to earth. They are quick to respond to special requests and always make you feel like you are the most important client.

Craig Macneill of Barnaby Draper Studios was our wedding videographer. I honestly cannot say enough great things about him, his work, and what it has meant to me and my family. When I think back to my wedding day and getting dressed and ready, I can picture Craig waiting patiently at the hair salon, as my hair and makeup was applied for HOURS. He stayed throughout the whole process, with a smile on his face. And, he got the best images of me, my mom, and my sister all getting ourselves dolled up for the evening. I can also remember him putting his camera at the church right before I was to begin my walk down the aisle down and blotting the wetness from my bouquet so it would not drip onto my dress. What I'm getting at is that Craig was not just a videographer for me on my wedding day. He was a friend, and a calming, cheerful presence on a very emotional day. If there's one decision you make when planning your wedding, it's to hire a Barnaby Draper wedding videographer like Craig (if he's not available, I'm sure they are all great!). The video he has put together for us is something I will cherish for the rest of my life. It's exquisite work, and I just cannot imagine not having it as a memory of the best day of my life.

it has been 13 months and I haven't received my album yet. I have tried contacting Barnaby several times. Sometimes i get excuses, something i get promises that staff are working on it, and most of the time i get no response at all. After 7 months i threatened legal action and even contacted the BBB but it has done nothing. Barnaby's staff are great but they needed things from him and when i questioned him about it he would just blame them. this has been an awful, frustrating experience and DEF NOT WORTH THE MONEY. I would like to prevent this from happening to anyone in the future. It has been so disheartening.

Erica Belcher was our photographer on behalf of Barnaby Draper Studios. She was amazing. She made a special trip a few weeks before our wedding to look at the venues and to discuss ideas for the photography. She had some very cool ideas and the photos turned out beautiful.

I would recommend her services to anyone. She is very easy going and makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera lens. She captured every moment and every detail on our wedding day, including all of the many fleeting moments that my husband and I were too busy to experience. This is truly the best value for the price.
