Wedding was early June, have only seen before wedding proofs. Other brides got married in September and photographers are showing off on FB their photos. Would suggest looking for another photgrapher. About time to call the BBB.

Horrible response time/follow up. Over 6 months to get pictures back. Grated we got lots of pictures, but most of them were pretty bad. Shadows, poor lighting. We got over 75 beautiful pictures of our plates. The majority of our ceremony pictures were of the back of our (bride and groom) heads. He did absolutely no staging of the family photos so they all came out pretty awful as well. I could go on, but long story short, my wife was in tears when we went through the pictures (and not the good type), the venue has taken him off of their vendor list, and we only got about 15 fair quality pictures out of about 600 photos. If you shoot as many pictures as he did, even an amateur could come up with a few gems. Stay away!!!!

As a wedding planner, I had many vendors I could choose from. I had worked with Brad for a couple of years and knew what to expect. Amazing quality photos for a wonderful price was exactly what he provided. Brad goes above and beyond for all of his clients. He always is willing to stay the extra time to capture every moment. Sometimes I often wonder how he gets the shots he does because you never see him! He is so generous and always willing to do what it takes to give you the best photos.

One thing I would like to say is that I know many people are upset he takes a long time in getting photos back. Being a vendor, I have different feelings than most. But I will say, I am beginning to see more and more that photographers are uping their production time and constantly posting to social media. This is something Brad does not do. Good quality works takes time! I do understand being frustrated if photos don't come as quickly as you expected or takes months, but I remind my clients and myself, that in 20 years it won't matter that it took 5 months to get your incredible photos back!

Overall Brad is an incredible value and I think for the money and for the quality of photos it is worth the wait :)

We passed on two very well-known photographers because Brad came so highly recommended. My daughter is married 1.5 years this month and we still do not have the photography package we purchased from Brad. All we keep hearing is he is busy and that he will upload pictures soon. It is disgusting to me that anyone could look themselves in a mirror and call themselves a professional. Why would you take people’s money and not deliver the pictures that were promised to this young married couple. How dare you Brad. How dare you trick us into thinking you were the best. We trusted you. You called us and threatened to cancel on us because my daughter got the payment due date incorrect. We raced the money to you. We did that because we wanted the BEST that money could buy. I feel foolish that we did not hire someone else. I feel terrible that my daughter nor I have a beautiful wedding picture hanging on our wall 1.5 years later. We treated you so well at the wedding. Served you dinner like you were a member of our family. I have NEVER posted anything like this in my life but you have pushed our family to let others know what you will do to them. I will never recommend your services to anyone. You may keep getting business based on other vendors or Two Rivers Country Club sharing the same photo shots over and over to make people believe you are a terrific photographer. But truth is you are not. IF you were this post would not be written. My daughter would have the memory of her wedding that she has been waiting for. Thank you for disregarding us over and over. In shock that we still do not have our photos that you were paid for 1.5 years ago..... Integrity is everything in life from business to our professional lives. I hope that you right your wrong doing. Court battles can become costly but worth it in this case.

We selected Brad Howe, because he is reputed to have a knack for getting good candid shots. My husband and I aren't a fan of stuffy, staged photos so we thought this was a good fit for us.

It's been over 7 months since our wedding and I still don't have my photos. I haven't seen anything from the ceremony or reception. After paying thousands of dollars, you want to see something! Repeated attempts to contact him have proven fruitless. We feel completely helpless.

Other photographers can take wonderful photos and actually deliver them within a month of your wedding. Spare yourself the grief - don't hire Brad Howe.

Although on meeting Brad, he seems personable enough. We have found him non responsive when it comes to delivering his product in a timely manor. He provides no proofs. He says he provides all the pictures he took fully edited. We have yet to see them. His response is we cannot push his creative process. The brides grandmother passed away last week never seeing a picture of her beautiful granddaughter on her wedding day. I was told by Brad we should have informed him of her imminent death and he would have materialized the pictures as he did for two other couples. Sorry we could not predict the future. I was told he would again be in contact with us in a timely fashion. Still have not heard from him. I would not recommend him to any bride. He will come up with creative excuses. So far just not creative photos.

Before your wedding, Brad is fantastic, responsive and attentive to what you want for your wedding. However, after your wedding, good luck hearing back from him. We didn't receive our wedding photos until we had already been married ONE YEAR. We had to beg to receive photos to take to my grandmother who was too old to attend my wedding months afterwards. We are now trying to receive our wedding album and its now been 18 months after our wedding. I have emailed Brad twice now and haven't received any response. I am hopeful to hear something back or I'll be filing a report with the BBB as we already paid the money and still haven't received our product.

I have only seen very few pictures from our wedding and it was EIGHT months ago. Brad and his assistant were very nice and helpful they seemed to get a lot of great shots. What we have seen are good but they are all very similar I have no idea what else he got. I just cannot believe it has taken 8 months and who knows how much longer until we get them. We are very disappointed since we had heard such great things.

My husband and I are delighted with our choice of Brad Howe as a photographer. We can't recommend him enough. He was so easygoing - we barely even knew he was there. He caught every moment, and got every shot that we asked for - plus so many more! His work is just beautiful. We had an outdoor wedding and reception - with unseasonably cold weather - and Brad and his assistant toughed it out the whole time - beginning to end. It was about a 3 month turnaround time for our photos - and well worth the wait for the quality and attention to detail he put into finishing the photos.
