I don't normally post negative things but today is the day I reveal the most unprofessional, unethical photographer of ALL times. Caroline Johnson photography. Grant & I got married last year on Feb. 18th 2012 and we still have yet to recieve our wedding album. Yeah, that's right people. It's now June 2013. We paid a small fortune to Caroline Johnson and she simply stole our money and our memories of that day. Unbelievable and from what I hear I am not the only one she has done this to. All we would get were excuses EVERY time and then no calls or emails were returned and text messages went unanswered for months at a time. Funny thing is she damn sure didn't forget to charge my debit card though! She was PAID IN FULL for thousands and I mean thousands of dollars before the wedding even occurred. Never in a million years did I expect this to happen. I can't believe she can sleep at night knowing she has done this to us. I chose her bc she takes amazing photos and I knew her from my spa and thought so highly of her. Just goes to show you never know who you can really trust and research is a must. Didn't think I needed o do that with her. Now it's legal action time because we have had enough. I think 16 months is more than enough time to get a wedding album and pictures back. She promised us Jan 31st of this year she would have it to us in 7 weeks...yeah right! Still waiting. So do yourselves a favor and DON'T EVER use Caroline Johnson as your photographer bc she has no problem screwing you over. #unethical#thief#liar#truefacts

Photography as art! She was also so fun to work with and made us all feel at ease! Loved her, expensive compared to some, but worth it!

Caroline Johnson was an absolutely amazing part of my wedding! From the time of booking, she was very prompt with her communication and stayed in the loop on all of the important details.

Caroline easily combines her professionalism with her fun-spirited personality to make you and your guests feel comfortable and happy during pictues. All of my bridesmaids loved her- and of course I did as well!

She was great with the guys too- and she got some really priceless and beautiful photos of them.

Overall, Caroline was better than I could've ever hoped for in a photographer. She captured all of the pictures that I wanted and more. *And a bonus: by the middle of the reception, she put up a digital picture frame at the bar with photos that were taken earlier in the night. By the next morning, Caroline had already edited and posted a good amount of pictures on facebook! All of my pictures turned out absolutely stunning- and I have not stopped receiving compliments on the photos even over a month after the wedding.

We have spoken several times in the past month since my wedding, and I even received a special thank you for a referral that she received due to the gorgeous pictures that a new bride saw from my wedding!

I know my decision for my album pictures and large prints will be difficult b/c I have so many beautiful pictures to choose form! You will not go wrong with Caroline- she is the best!

I, too, had a negative experience with this photographer. Her pictures were beautiful, which drew me to her in the first place, but when it came time to see the images online, create the album or order prints, things fell apart. She operated on her own timeline and was difficult and argumentative over the album creation and edits. While she was at first very friendly, she became short and hostile, when not completely unresponsive. Not worth the hassel. I recommend brides find a photographer who can back up their work with great customer service.

Overall Rating: 0!! Please Beware!!
After 2 1/2 years, we still have no wedding album, even though it has been paid for in full. As with others, our photos are beautiful but they are tainted by the unprofessional actions of this photographer...that I believed to be more than that, a friend. Sadly, her business practices have brought her amazing talent to ruin. As for us, we are now forced to file suit against her in order to receive that which she reneged on.

I previously posted a negative review of this photographer, after experiencing a number of problems with her. The review came to her attention and she contacted me recently to discuss the issues I wrote about. She asked me to consider removing the review. After some thought, I decided to rewrite the review to include her responses to be fair to her.

Basically, my complaints were that we had a very difficult time communicating with her, and the information she gave us about expected timelines was inaccurate.

She did listen to what I had to say, and seemed to genuinely want to improve her customer service, so I hope that things will change for the better. Also, she did give us several large prints and a parent's wedding album free of charge as an apology for the trouble we had, which was quite generous. I hope that she is able to use this experience to improve her business in the future.

Sigh. This photographer was my biggest regret on my wedding day. Her website is great, her photos are great...she does a great job sucking you into a whirlwind of stress and hassle. It is a shame that when we look at our wedding photos to this day, we have a bad taste in our mouth because we had to go through hell to get them. 3 years later and we are still waiting for items promised and NEVER received. She takes your money, lots of it, and then doesn't fullfill promises. PLEASE do not set yourself up for heartbreak on your wedding day. Choose someone that actually cares. I really hope she does all brides a favor and chooses another line of work.
She is extremely unprofessional. Great pictures...but once you get them you will be so mad you won't want to look at them.
