My experience with this company was a nightmare. This will not allow enough room for me to list everything, but my main issue was that we had to wait 24 weeks to get the photos when the contract stated it would take 8 and that was only after reporting the company to BBB. She also said she mailed the flash drive, but obviously didn't because it never came.
I didn't get a consultation before the wedding. There wasn't a photo of my mom and I together or my Maid of Honor (my sister) and I together, and there were only 2 photos of me by myself. One was from behind and the other from behind and I'm looking over my shoulder. That's it. Two photos of the bride.
I felt like I was having to lead alot of the shots and locations, but that's why I hired a professional. That being said, her husband did a great job and took lots of photos of the guys in many locations.
She said it took so long for the photos because there was a person taking photos during the wedding (that violates the contract) and was in the background of all the photos and she had to edit them out. Reality is that she was in 1 shot and that was because the photographer specifically took the photo of her, the bride and groom weren't in the shot at all. She also took pictures of any person she saw with a camera or camera bag even if they weren't taking photos and included these in the gallery. I'm wondering what shots she missed while looking for and taking photos of any person that had brought a camera. That shows me that she wanted to make sure she had something to hold over my head. She also said she didn't have to finish shooting that day or give me any of the photos since other people took photos.
Please beware because it seems that no matter what happens she could try to use the fact that someone else took photos if she has to. I have never been to a wedding where people did not take their own photos and there is only so much you can to do and control to keep that from happening.

Where to begin! This was a NIGHTMARE and still is! The wedding was August 2nd, it's not FEBRUARY 10 and we still have NO pictures!
It took till Dec to get Bobby to post some of the pics to view and they were horrible! The dress was SOFT white but in the pictures it's BRIGHT white and you can barely tell the difference between dress and skin! Bobby gave us the same song and dance she gave everyone else "It took so long because other people were taking pics with flash and they messed up the pictures." Well, the wedding was OUTSIDE in the SUNSHINE so even it someone did have a flash go off, it wouldn't overrun the SUN! My step sister is professional photographer as is the best man and 2 of my mother's best friends. ALL of them said that bull! She claimed she had been doing all the editing and THEN said she had to go back and edit them to fix how washed out they are. ALL FOUR photographers we asked to look at them agree they are overexposed and poorly done.
Bobby made what seems like dozens of deadlines for herself but never met ONE! We also noticed SEVERAL pictures are missing! Groom and bridesmaids, bride and groomsmen, Grooms family, some of bride before the wedding, and couple leaving in the car just to name a few. When asked where they were Bobby tried to tell us that "if something is wrong with a picture, like someone's eyes were closed, she didn't post them." We asked her to send ALL the pics to us so we could see if any photoshopping could be done to save them. NOPE. In one pic of me getting ready before the wedding, there is a reflection of me in my UNDERWEAR in the mirror!!!! HELLO????? After MONTHS and DOZENS of attempts to get this resolved, Bobby has simply stopped responding. This woman is a NIGHTMARE! Every time we would email, it was like we never talked before! She would ask the same questions and say she couldn't fix anything till we gave her the answers. I started to just forward her our emails from weeks previous!

Wayne and Bobbie were great! They traveled to middle tennessee for our wedding weekend, and photographed every part of the weekend. We received our pictures very quickly and the price we paid for the pictures they took was wonderful. Actually, they were at the venue before I was! Both of then were very professional and I would definitely suggest that anyone use them for thier wedding! My husband and I (as well as our two families) feel very fortunate to have found them and are very glad they were there to share our weekend with us!

The venue you chose was wonderful. We enjoyed working with you both and meeting your families. Having the entire weekend gave us time to photograph some very special moments.
Thanks so much for sharing your day with us.

Wayne and Bobbie did our engagement and reception photography. They did a fantastic job working with our unique reception (we had a Halloween reception), they even dressed in costume! They were very professional and made sure all of the shots were captured without being obtrusive. They were very fair on the price. We were so impressed my sister is using them for her wedding next year!

Bobbie and Wayne provided photography services for my husband and I last year on our wedding day as well as for our engagement photos. We were extremely pleased with the service and our photos! When I first talked to Bobbie about photographing our wedding she assisted me in coming up with a suitable package that fit our financial restrictions. It was one thing about them I think most brides will be most thankful for. We got wonderful pictures for a price we could afford!! Our engagement photos were way beyond our expectations! They were promptly made available to us so that we could use them for our engagement announcements despite the fact that we didn't have a chance to shoot them till just a few short weeks before our wedding. They were on time the day of our wedding leaving us plenty of time to get in the pictures we wanted to capture our wedding day. Having 2 photographers was wonderful. We got 2 perspectives in our photos! It took me awhile to order my photos, however Bobbie was again prompt about getting my order to me! When we received the pictures, they were beautiful! Wonderful quality! I should add that Bobbie and Wayne were recommended to me by a friend and I will surely pass on the recommendation!!

Thank you Ashley and Adam for allowing us to be a part of your day. We enjoyed working with you both and hope to have a chance to work with you both again. You and Adam were an inspiration to us and again thank you for allowing us to share your beautiful wedding day with you. I will never forget the look on your face when you walked out of the chapel and saw the carriage ride your parents had arranged for you. The photo of your all riding away in the carriage is one of my favorite images to date.

Wayne and Bobbie are two of the most amazing people my wife and I have ever met. Our wedding to say the least would have been a disaster if it were not for these two.When nothing else in our wedding was going right their experience instantly saved everything. Not only were they photogrophers, but became wedding wedding coordinators. Never pushy about anything at all, but it was like having a care taker there to take care of any problem that would arise. So talk about two people that went above and beyond. The phothos to say the least were amazing. Plenty of them, and enough to make you laugh, cry, and smile because you can relive every memory through each photo. So many original ideas also.. We had a blast with our pictures. My wife loves having her photo taken, me on the other hand not so much. So for me to say I had fun with photos it really means something. I can assure you that there is no better photographer to go with. Thank you Wayne and Bobbie

BW Photography consists of a husband and wife team...Bobbi and Wayne. They traveled from TN to Corbin KY twice. Once for our engagement photo session in March and a second time for our Wedding in May. They could not have been more accomodating or pleasant to work with. In fact, through our experience with them and their down to earth, personable, caring attitude, we now call them our friends.
On our wedding day, Wayne followed John around with his crew and even helped him set up our wedding site which was on the platform overlooking Cumberland Falls.....it was raining and so we couldn't set up till very very late.
Of course it raining...I'm freaking out and the whole time, Bobbi just kept me calm, focused on the meaning of the day and on getting ready.....even went out and got me food and a drink to make sure I didn't pass out from hunger that day. As we went to the outdoor wedding site, it was still raining....but like she said its all gonna be fine and work out....and it did...the skies parted, and the sun started shining I walked down the aisle to my fiance who was standing there overlooking the falls..... She was like a photgrapher, wedding assistant, and friend all in one.
We couldn't be more pleased with our experience with Bobbi and Wayne....and we'll definitely use them again whenever the occasion should arise.
