Celebration Photography is the most horrible photography company I have ever met. My Husband and I booked them on an impulse buy.We had no idea what we were in for. First of all they don't tell you up front that you will not meet the photographer who will be shooting for your engagment or wedding until the day of. They couldn't even gurantee us that we would have the same photographers for e-pictures as for the wedding. The reason we booked with them was because they had some great deals and show cased some nice photographs. But I read all the bad reviews after I had already signed the contract. Once I read the reviews and realized I wouldn't meet my photographer until the day of I tried to get out of the contract. This was a huge mistake on our part because we did not realize that once you sign the contract with them you are responsible for the entire amount regardless if they deliver the service or not. I tried to give them the benefit of the doubt but the reviews were true. They have awful customer service. Shamika was so rude, she didn't return our phone calls or e-mails the week of our wedding.. so we were stressed out wondering if the photographers would show on time. This was unnecessary stress. No bride or groom should stress out as much as we did regarding their photography. Thankfully, My husband and I decided to book another photographer the month before our wedding.. If it wasn't for her I would of gone crazy. I am so glad I followed my instinct because I was notified today that the company is going bankrupt. I am sad because I ordered an album for myself, for our parents, prints, cd with pictures and I am not even sure if they will follow thru and fulfill the contract. Please Please read reviews before you book with any photography company. I do not wish what we have gone through with this company on anyone else.

This company is aweful! The actual photographer was great but the company is run like a fly by night. It is impossible to contact anyone to set up appointments for photos or to find out any information. It took 7 months to finally get my album and prints. Once you've paid in full they really don't care about customer service and make all sorts of promices they can't keep. My suggestion is if you do decide to ues them pay half up front and tell them you'll pat the rest when you receive your album and prints.

They are EXTREMELY rude and they take forever to return phone calls and of course they never answer the phone. The photographer I worked with was great, but you're not dealing with them, you deal with the company. ariel was never willing to work with me as far as a payment plan after I stopped working. The album that was free wasnt even nice and it only holds 20 pages, so to get my entire day, I had to get another 6 pages at 40 dollars each.

PLEASE choose another photographer for your own good! I first heard of Celebration Photography when attending a LA Bridal Show. They handed out a flyer of questions to ask other photographers to help me choose the right photographer. When decision time came, I asked them all of the questions that were on their flyer and after seeing their digital photo albums, we decided on them. BIG MISTAKE! BEWARE - They are super nice until they receive your final payment. Once the final payment was received the only contact I had with them was initiated by me and they were always incredibly rude and seemed bothered by my questions and follow-up. The issue began when I had no idea who my photographer was until the day of the wedding - turns out they outsource their photographers and don’t necessarily know who your photographer actually will be until the day of an event. The photographer they chose to cover our wedding did not follow the list of photos requested, disappeared for 30 minutes during the reception, lost several key family and bride w/groom pictures, and many of the remaining pictures had lighting issues. Upon notifying Celebration Photography of these issues, not only were they unwilling to take responsibility for the lack of quality but did not apologize for any inconvenience. And recall one of the main reasons I booked them was for their album digital designs? If you decide on this photography studio be very careful and make them spell out exactly what you are looking for in the contract regarding the album design = bait & switch. They showed us one album, we negotiated the price, and now they want more money (a couple hundred more) for the digital design because they forgot to write digital design on the contract. They are saying we only negotiated 20 pages with 20 pictures – 1 picture per page… The worst part? We also paid for a CD of all the negatives… 9 months have passed and we still do not have any negatives or an album. The timeline they give you is separate from the contract so they are not bound by it. Another thing to consider, the employees who drafted our contract no longer work there, and despite the fact that their initials are all over our contract w/ modifications – their current office manager Shameka (VERY RUDE) will not honor their changes. When I shared my frustration of how we still do not have photos her response was that she has couples from 2008 that still haven’t received their photos. Was that supposed to make me feel better? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE choose someone else! There are so many other talented and more professional photographers out there…

Brides Beware. This company worked hard to get our business but after our initial deposit, I never spoke to the same person twice. They asked us to fill out a questionairre to include the important people that should be photographed at the wedding and they never used it. They took pictures of the wrong family....We never received photos of our parents. They basically ruined our wedding!! We don't have memories of us with our parents! We complained to Ariel Kahn, Chief of Staff, who pretty much told us that the pictures were fine and we should just be happy with them. Our package included an album and she designed it for us. We did not get the design we wanted, all of our requests were ignored from day one. Ariel did not care if we were satisifed with them, in fact, it appears as if she doesn't even like her job. We received our pictures 6 months after the wedding and we only received half of the pictures. I had to call back and rudely was sent the second half. There were over 1000 pictures taken and only 7 of those were good pictures. I still had to take them to another photography studio to have them fixed. We had soooo many issues with this company. Brides...please save yourself alot of grief and don't fall for this company based on price like we did. Celebration was not the highest nor the cheapest so we thought we were doing good. We are very disappointed. This is one of the most important days of your life....don't let them ruin it!

They don't call you back, don't answer the phone, require that the final payment be made by cash or cashiers check so we had to drive 45 minutes to drop it off when the initial payment was able to be made by paypal.

PLEASE do not use this company! They are extremely rude and unprofessional. I have been working with manager, Ariel Kahn. I cannot believe how she treats people with disdain, sarcasm and minimizing your wedding day and value as a consumer. Again, she is the MANAGER! Can you imagine? The manager of the company treating customers so poorly? She treats you as if she is doing you a favor. We are PAYING for services! We tried to forefit our deposit because of the service...the contract is unbreakable, you must still pay even if you do not use their services! I hope that everyone that has used this company complains to the better business bureau.

The pictures are wonderful and the photographer was great, the people who you work with before hand are awfull!! they never return phone calls and you have to be on the ball with them. they also somewhat rip you off for what you get with your pictures. example, i thought we were getting a big book with lots of pages like they showed us. what i got was a credit for a small simple boring book and then it cost me another 3,000.00 to get what i really wanted. for the time you got the photographer you needed to add more time and that was also a rip off. so if you want great pictures and can handle being very patient with your handler (because you don't meet the photographer till the big day) then they are great. if not go with someone else.

I had a major issue with this vendor. When I went in to meet with them, it was a huge push to get my business. Once they had it and I had signed my contract, I received mulitple calls to get my business (again) and little no response when I did need them. I never received a corrected contract (names were misspelled, locations were incorrect, and lots of handwritten additions and subtractions) and only recieved a call back when they needed my second payment. However, my photographer was fantastic. His work was great, he was very nice, and completely unobtrusive to my day while still getting all the right shots. Upon receiving my proofs, I had no black and white shots (I had been promised 20%, handwritten in on my contract), and had them uncerimoniously handed to me in cardboard box with no explanation as to what steps I needed to take next to get my album finished. And I never dealt with the same person twice.

I would never recommend this photography company. Their photographer showed up an hour late then lost 100 of our photos. We nearly had to take legal action to get a refund for the lost time.

They are horrible with communication. They are very difficult to reach by phone, and I rarely got a response to my emails. We sent a list of photos to our photographer that we specifically wanted, which he never bothered to look at.

In retrospect, I would have rather picked a photographer who I could have met with a couple months before the wedding to work out details instead of trying to sort it out a couple days before (since Celebration doesn't tell you who the photographer is until just before the event). I do have to say that the photos we did get turned out very well, but dealing with the company was a total hassle.

This company is like what K-mart is to the appearal industry. You will not know who your photographer is until you meet him on your wedding day. The company itself was professional but in hind site I would never use them again or recommend them. Out of the 500 shots the Photographer they assigned to our Wedding took we liked about 45. Many were riduculous mug shots of individuals instead of couples and hideous angles of my dress that were very unflattering. We got the few shots we wanted of each part of the day so it was good enough. But for the type of black tie evening event we threw, the photos should have been so much more. This company contracts out to whatever photographer is slow that month or just getting their feet wet and not very experienced. I would pass on this company and hire a real photographer that you can meet ahead of time. Ask everyone you know that is married what they liked and disliked about their photography and make a detailed list of everything you want. The best advice we got was to take the professional family and wedding party shots before the ceremony. My husband and I meet quietly alone with the photographer so he could see me for the first time and we are so glad we did that. My groom did not have that Deer in Headlight look that can happen when he sees you walking down the aisle and we were able to join our guests at the cocktail party before the reception. I have been to Weddings where all the major players dissapear for 2 hours to take photos after the ceremony and I always wished that they were able to enjoy their own party. We bought the RAW files and I will be able to make my own digital coffee table book from them once I fix them up a bit. Pass on this one and go elsewhere.

I would pass on this company and hire a real photographer that you can meet ahead of time. Ask everyone you know that is married what they liked and disliked about their photography and make a detailed list of everything you want. The best advice we got was to take the professional family and wedding party shots before the ceremony. My husband and I meet quietly alone with the photographer so he could see me for the first time and we are so glad we did that. My groom did not have that Deer in Headlight look that can happen when he sees you walking down the aisle and we were able to join our guests at the cocktail party before the reception. I have been to Weddings where all the major players dissapear for 2 hours to take photos after the ceremony and I always wished that they were able to enjoy their own party. We bought the RAW files and I will be able to make my own digital coffee table book from them once I fix them up a bit. Pass on this one and go elsewhere. Read less
