I had won a contest to get a second free photographer and that's why we originally went with Birch Photographers. But after our wedding was done I was more than pleased we had chosen them! Our photographers were professional, experienced, had a good sense of humor, and were wonderful at posing people and taking STUNNING pictures.

Our main photographer, Matt, was great posing the little kids in the wedding party and taking control of the situation when people would get distracted. He made sure that every moment of time we paid for was well worth it.

Toby was great, dealt with our craziness, and even stayed an extra hour (that we paid for, but he had to go home to his kids so it was still nice) so we didn't miss pictures of all the important things at the reception. They were very efficient and worked as a team well to get multiple shots at the same time. I cant wait to see how they turned out!

I can not begin to express how much I enjoyed having Birch Photography as a part of our big day! Tony and Steve were our photographers - not only did they do an amazing job of capturing the moments throughout the day, they were so fun to be around and very polite! I was shocked at how fast we received our photos back and how organized and perfect the whole process was. Not to mention, the customer service prior to the day and afterward has been nothing but exemplary. One of the photos was lost in the shuffle (of my husband's whole family) and they found the photo and sent it to me within hours along with a $30 gift certificate to Pictage so I could get the photos printed. HOW AMAZING IS THAT? Birch goes above and beyond with everything that they do and I would recommend them to every single person that I know who is or will be getting married. Thanks Birch!

We used Birch Photographers for our fall wedding on Oct 1, 2011. Corinna was our photographer and she was so great to work with. We had met her initially at our engagement shoot where she got a feel of our style and what we were looking for. Birch photographers were very profressional. Prior to my wedding, they sent me a survey to fill out so they knew almot everything about my family, the types of footage I wanted them to take on my wedding day, and any other details. We got our pictures back about 3 weeks after our wedding. It was SUPER fast! Scott over at Birch photographers also put together a teaser slideshow (to music) about 4 - 5 weeks after our wedding. All in all, if you are looking for a great photographer for an exceptional value I would check out Birch Photographers. Great quality and great service!!

My Photopraher Amy and her assistant, were excellent they listened to everyting we wanted, My husband and I love the game of golf and we got married at the polo fields of washentaw in Yspilanti, I forgot our clubs and Amy's assistant had some in his car, so we were able to do some shots with the clubs, they captured our story perfectly and Birch Photograhers in a whole were amazing, and I had a alot of stressful things happen during the last months of planning, and they were helpful, I loved the payment plan, and I love LOVE LOVE my album.

We had awesome service from the start to the finish ! Booking was easy . Whenever I had any questions they were answered promptly . All the photos were brilliant and the wedding book we received with all of our photos was much better then what we were expecting ! We also got a CD with all the photos on it and it was great to look back and see bits and pieces I missed during the wedding . They captured every moment perfectly without being too intrusive ! I recommend them to all of my friends getting married !!

We had some miscommunication the day of the wedding about where I wanted to start the first round of pictures, but the quality of the photos and the final product did not suffer from it. Overall it was a very pleasant experience, and the album turned out beautifully; which is important since getting photographed is what I remember the most about our wedding.

We were able to select a photographer that we liked by choosing from a few portfolios. Birch offers a great payment plan that you take care of monthly, which is great for couples on a budget. We were also able to get one a promotion that included a photobooth through Swaggerbooth and an additional photographer.

Birch photography provided a great package special I recieved at the Canton, MI Bridal Show. I purchased the package over a year in advance and initially, a Birch representative was hard to reach for questions. But the professionalism and creativity Kimberlee and Jordan showed on my wedding day erased any doubt. They took amazing pictures and were willing to listen to ideas or suggestions from me or my wedding party. It couldn't have gone any better!

I had nothing but positive interactions with Birch Photography from Day 1. The low prices, option for interest free monthly payment plans, amazing albums and availability are what drew me to the company initially. Once I met with a consultant and viewed the portfolios, I was hooked.

As most brides out there, I had many questions along the way. Everyone responded to my emails within hours. I was updated throughout the process, and if I ever forgot a detail, it was all on my online account.

Most importantly, my pictures are simply amazing. I could not have asked for a better outcome... and I can not stop looking at the pictures!

There was a big fiasco with booking the correct photographer, but in the end we needed up with Meaghan B., and Mattie. Meaghan was awesome. She was very chill and accommodating, but definitely knew her stuff. She took lots of photos all evening, from the First look to the ceremony to the reception, but I never felt like she was in my face or in the way. She was very courteous and just fun to hang around with.

The photos take up to a month to get back, but I am looking forward to seeing Meaghan and Mattie's beautiful work!

The value I got with this company is the reason why I stayed but you do get what you paid for. At first I picked out my photographer, and then couldn't have him due to health issues. Therefore I picked my second photographer and did my engagement shoot and started to set everything up with her until she found out my wedding was 3.5 hours up north. A little background, when I booked I specifically asked if I had to pay a travel fee as long as my wedding was in the state of MI and I was told that there weren't any travel fees. Well after being involved with this company for a little over 2 months they FINALLY looked at my information and found out that my wedding was 3.5 hours away and further told me that if I wanted to stay with my photographer I would have to pay for travel costs or find one closer to my location. I was extremely upset because I specifically asked about travel from the start. So I ended up going with my THIRD photographer who was from the same area as me and would still have to travel a great distance (yet I didn't have to pay for her fees?)
My photographer is with another company who is affiliated with Birch and she was AMAZING. She was extremely sweet and very professional. I haven't seen the final photos yet but from what she was showing me on my camera I can tell that every shot will be beautiful.
The company didn't work well with me, I felt like they were paying me and I was bending over backwards for them. BUT the photographers that I worked with were very professional and both my engagement photos and wedding photos are perfect. If you can handle dealing with some organization issues then I would book with them, if you can't handle a few bumps in the road then I would look someplace else. Overall my big day went very well and I can't wait to see the finished product.

We truly are sorry for all of the hoops we made you jump through to finally get to a photographer that travels to your destination. I am sure it was disappointing for you to switch photographers but in the end, we did want to make sure that you got one of the best photographers to photograph your wedding day.

Our wedding photos were highly anticipated, and when they were returned to us I was very disappointed. Many of the photos were not centered, thus some people were cut off. Some were tilted and crooked. Others just weren't quite right to me. This might have been me being picky, but looking at each photo it seemed like none of them had been touched up. I felt like I was looking at the raw, unedited photos. None of this was what I expected at all. Although there were some truly fantastic photos, there were some that I just didn't understand how that could pass as acceptable. Since receiving the disc, I have spent time editing my own photos as well as enlisting the help of friends with experience in this.

On a different note, our photographer was nice and was willing to work with us on whatever we wanted to do. That was appreciated. They arrived on time, asked us if there were any other photos we wanted before we left.

I don't feel that we got what we paid for. I also don't know what the point of the wedding survey was because they didn't take any of the pictures I specifically requested. There weren't any pictures of the guests at the wedding/reception. But yet they were outside with our rings for at least 30 minutes. For the price we paid I assumed we were going to be getting professional pictures of the whole day and everyone there, and get what we want. But I could have taken the same pictures we got from my iPhone. Some came out really nice, but that was like 20/900. Would not recommend.

Brandilynn seemed fun, professional, and very thorough over the course of our emails which made me feel confident in my choosing of her. However, this woman caused so much undue stress on me, my husband, and my bridal party on my wedding day. She arrived late after calling multiple times asking for directions to our hotel. When we finally got to the farm, she hopped out without grabbing anything but her camera and began taking us to the barn for our photoshoot. Once inside the barn she informed us that oh, darn... She forgot EVERYTHING she needed for the shoot back in the car. All 12 of us then had to sit around and wait for her to go retrieve her things which took a lot of precious time that at this point we did not have. She finally got back and wasted several more minutes thinking about and posing each shot before ever taking any. Then after the ceremony, she informed me that she had LEFT HER PACKET OF INFORMATION at the hotel. This included all the family shots I wanted, the names of everyone and little things like "the brides parents are divorced." I then had to assist her in calling everyone up and trying to remember the shots I had wanted while I was still shaking from having just experienced one of the biggest moments of my life. When she called my parents up for a shot, she again spent minutes telling us "move your arm 2 inches to the left please, and turn your foot slightly inward" as she did with every pose, and then she asked my DIVORCED father and mother to embrace each other for the camera. Needless to say, that was very embarrassing for them and could have been completely avoided had our photographer remembered to gather her very important information or at least taken a few minutes to really read over it prior to the wedding.

Using a place like Birch means that you don't have to pay as much for your photographer, but unfortunately the quality of the photos taken was not up to par in my mind. For 5 hours of service, with 2 photographers, we only received 900 photos, many of which were duplicates. We hired 2 photographers in hopes to get some pictures with different angles, but instead it appears that every photo was taken by the same person from the same place. The major shots that brides want (picture of the grooms face when he first sees her for instance) were out of focus and from a distance. There framing was bad on the photos that we received. We realize they are unedited, but unfortunately they also look unprofessional. We also had communication problems with Birch and our photographer. Worth spending the extra money to get a photographer that works on their own/has their own business rather than one that is contracted through a company like Birch.

Worst experience ever! Wouldn't imagine recommending this company to anyone! They did not get a single thing correct from our engagement pictures to our wedding day! Never heard from our photographer, didn't bring what they were supposed to to our wedding, didn't send correct event cards, have to pay for edits to each picture, etc. I can't reiterate enough how disappointed I am in the quality of service and professionalism they provide.

We are so sorry that Anonymous felt they had such a bad experience. We truly strive to be the best wedding photography service and will always go above and beyond, especially if problems should arise.

Our photographers have a final review with the bride and groom no later than the week of the wedding but typically 7-14 days before the wedding.

Standard editing is always included in our packages and we have even provided premium editing at no charge in the rare instances where customers may have had issues with some of their images.

We hope that Anonymous gives us an opportunity to rectify any issues they may have had.

I would invite all to read our other reviews that highlight our due diligence and the pride we take in our role as your wedding photographer.

Thank you.

Incredibly dissatisfied with my photos by Birch Photography. I contacted them to make my concerns known and I was told that they would edit the photos (half of them were too dark to see, or our faces were red because of poor lighting by the photographer). When my "NEW" photos were mailed to me, they look the same. My mother was also very upset that in the gallery, there was no photo of my brother walking her down the aisle. I left Birch a voicemail about where this photo is and they uploaded it under a folder called, "Additional Photos". So now I'm wondering what other photos have been withheld from us. Pretty fishy, unprofessional, and frustrating, if you ask me.

I contacted them to make my concerns known and I was told that they would edit the photos (half of them were too dark to see, or our faces were red because of poor lighting by the photographer). When my "NEW" photos were mailed to me, they look the same. My mother was also very upset that in the gallery, there was no photo of my brother walking her down the aisle. I left Birch a voicemail about where this photo is and they uploaded it under a folder called, "Additional Photos". So now I'm wondering what other photos have been withheld from us. Pretty fishy, unprofessional, and frustrating, if you ask me. Read less

My experience with Birch Photography has been abysmal. Our wedding was 7 1/2 months ago and I still do not have the issues surrounding our wedding photos resolved. To begin with, our photographer, Brandilyn did not provide professional photography service. To begin with, she arrived late to our wedding site. Subsequently, our photos did not have good or consistent lighting. Additionally, she did not pay attention to details, such as centering persons in relation to the background or avoiding random/odd things being in the background of staged photos. When I first received my photos in November and noticed the disappointingly low quality of the photos, I contacted Birch immediately. I was told they could provide clarity to the blurry photos, crop out random oddities from the background, and fix in some fashion some of the coloring issues. After numerous calls and failed attempts to fulfill what I had been told could be done. I now, 7 and a half months later, have just been told that they removed a banner from the background of half a dozen pictures and they are done. I still do not have quality photos of my wedding day and am deeply disappointed at the lack of professionalism and customer service provided by Birch. I am glad that others seem to have had wonderful experiences, but that certainly was not my experience with this company.

My wedding was July 5th, 2013. I had the photobooth schedule from 8:30-11:30pm for my wedding reception. I was told they would come set up at 7:30. Two girls showed up at 5:30pm dressed like they were going clubbing. Miniskirts and mustache jewelry….really? I told them that they were dressed kind of immodestly for the wedding and I was afraid they would offend some of my guests. This was a church wedding and reception with no drinking or dancing. They told me that they would run up to Wal-Mart and see if there was something they could do. They then left and around 7:30 they came back and said that there was nothing they could find for under $25 and they could not afford it. After the ceremony (8:30pm) when my bridesmaids went to check on the reception area and the photobooth girls were taking down the equipment. They said that the computer was not working and they were going to leave and their manager would call on Monday. My awesome bridesmaids and the bestman had an idea of using one of their personal SD cards and the photobooth camera and just taking pictures manually on a tripod and then getting the picture printed up later. The girls started doing that but around 8:45pm they asked one of my girls if they could leave to get some food. She told them that they should probably stay. By the time the official reception started the girls had left and did not return till after the reception. They left their camera but never put up the booth. I do have some pictures on an SD card but none on them were in the photobooth, instead they are against a plain wall. We were promised my swaggerbooth that we would get a full refund. We did finally get a check almost a month after the wedding and after many calls. The first check we got was not written out correctly. We also did not get refunded for the tax we paid on the package, we only got the package price back.

Three and a half years ago my husband and I renewed our wedding vows. We had an intimate ceremony followed by a private photo session with our photographer and his assistant (whom we were told by Birch would be a second photographer). During the photo shoot our photographer took a couple of shots of us near an old wagon wheel. We were concerned with the utility pole guide wire being in the photos but the photographer assured us it was a simple edit and it would not be in the final photos. However, when we received our dvd it had not been edited out. When I contacted Birch regarding this I was told that their photo editor simply did not know how to remove the guide wire from the photo. My 19 year old daughter offered to edit the photo (something she learned in a high school computer program course) and email it to the professional? editor. Which she did.
Our DVD contained 550 photos (many duplicates and triples of the same photo turned black & white and/or sepia). This is nearly half the amount of photos of many other reviewers who have complained of the mere 900, whom also had two photographers. I did receive the DVD in a timely manner. However, it took over a year and many phone calls for my photos to arrive! After 3 and a half years I still have yet to receive my Canvas Print or Photo Album, which were part of the package. Countless phone calls have simply been ignored.
