The high reviews are strictly for my photographer. The company itself just closed up shop and left hundreds of us high and dry without proofs, albums, etc.!!! Do not use them! My photographer was Tim Camuso. You can now find him here www.timothyglennphoto.com I highly recommend him!!

The photographer and videographer were very professional. Customer service at the company less than desireable. Still waiting for proofs. Look up the company on the web and find out the truth.

I can not report on any pictures because I do not have anything back after 2 months!!!!! They will not return phone calls to me to let me know when my proofs will be able to be picked up or on-line. I have made several calls to them. I also never talked to my photographer before that day and I called the office all week looking for them. One photographer was late. I had two photographers and one was a little pushy and was annoyed at times people were not ready. The other was more fun and laid back. I do know that when funny things happened or special moments they were all there.
Do not hire them if you want pictures back on time or ever want to speak with anyone

What a DISASTER!!! The photographers (Brian O. & Ileana) were prompt/professional/&nice on the day of my wedding... but the studio literally Disappeared afterwards. All I've gotten thus far are Some of my paper proofs, but currently have no way of making an albums/portraits/etc. As a result of this experience, I would certainly recommend to new brides to spend the extra money on a Small Studio!!

I will say that our actual photographer was WONDERFUL the days before and on our wedding day. We had no problem with him or others who worked in the office. Everyone answered all of our questions & was readily available to us. ALL of our problems have occured AFTER we got married. They breeched our contract and didn't care. Proofs were 7 weeks late (no apologizes). We hardly get in touch with anyone in the office when we call or email. Photos are missing from our proofs (i.e. father/bride walking down aisle!!). We were promised more than 800 photos, we got less than 600 hundred. It took over a month to order Thank You photos b/c no one would answer the phone when we called to order. We were told our proofs would be online for our family & friends to view--they're not online at all. And we have yet to discuss our album with anyone. While we got married in August, friends of ours got married in May & used Celebration too--they are having the same problems! My husband & I HIGHLY discourage anyone from booking with Celebration. We promise you, you'll be treated well before & the day of your wedding, but after that forget it! They want nothing to do with you once they have your money. You are left feeling scammed and frustrated. We've spoken to a lawyer about our issues, and are reporting them to the Better Business Bureau. Be warned, they've redone their website and claim that they work together as a team and how they'll cater to your every wish & desire--it's totally false. We have yet to see any of that. It's nothing but months of aggravation with this company.

Celebration Studios is now a defunct photography company that promised many wonderful items, but didn't fulfill any of these promises. Our photographers were fabulous people and took amazing pictures. Thankfully they were great people, and we therefore have some of our wedding memories.

we spent alot of money on getting our photographer, but it was hard to get in touch with them. After the wedding, i kept calling them for updating on our wedding pictures, they weren't responding right away. It took us 6 months to get our photos, and we still haven't got our albums from them since they went bankruptcy....it was a disaster!

Please do not use this service. It has been over a year from my wedding and I still do not have any pictures. The photographer was unprofessional, dressed in rags, and tried to take over reception. The process since has been painful, no one answers phone calls, messages, emails, and even after an appointment to sit down and discuss our issues, there is still no progress on our albums. This company seems like it would be wonderful because it is large and in multiple areas (Philly, New York, New Jersey) but in reality they are overloaded with clients and understaffed. The staff members that are employed are not professional and in the span of our contract, we have seen 3 members be let go or leave.

Make sure you make your album layout appointment AS SOON as you get your proofs. I waited about a month and then when I went to make the appointment there was nothing available for another 2 months. All in all we were happy with the quality of the photographs and the photographers. We are still waiting for the album and video, but hear that is typical for most places.

You needed to be ver specific with what you wanted from them. I didn't want a bunch of "lined up shots" and i wanted more candid shots, if i had not told them i would have gotten a boring high school year book out of them.

Before and during my wedding, I had an excellent experience with them. However, afterwards, I had to constantly get in touch with them to find out what the status was with my proofs, my album and my video.

It turns out that a little over a year after my wedding, the company started going downhill, but I didn't know this until my sister-in-law used them for her wedding. She is still waiting to get her proofs (almost a year later) because the company filed for bankruptcy and there is a class action law suit against them!

My pictures came out beautifully so their quality was great, but their customer service was very poor!

I was calling them off the hook and they were giving me the run around. THE COMPANY Was a sham but they staff taking the pictures and the video were very talented. They just worked for SCUM!

This vendor has been on the news recently and has gone bankrupt. Our photographers that we were assigned were fantastic and I was thrilled with the quality of the pictures and album I received. I wasn't so happy with the design crew and didn't find them helpful.

I want to note that the photos actually come out fine. That is, if you ever get them.

I was married over 18 months ago and I'm still waiting on 2 parents albums. We gave them the proofs for one of them last Thanksiving and now it is Oct. Since they need the actual physical proofs to make an album, the other parents album has just started and I probably won't see it until the end of 2008 (at this rate). Here are the problems I've encountered:
1. videographer missed the speeches at the reception
2. VERY slow turnaround of the albums.
3. They got my husband's first name and the date wrong on our video.
4. My designer does not return calls or emails in a timely manner-or at all. Once I called at 2pm and was told she was out to lunch and then called back at 5pm and was told she was out to dinner. I really think she was just to busy too take calls.
5. I've had to mail them back the CD's (and video) they mailed me because they didn't make copies for themselves.
6. No table photos
7. not many photos of people outside of the wedding party

We hired Celebration Studios to do our photography and videography. We were assigned Tim as our photographer, and he was fantastic. He met with us prior to our event to go over details and to see the location where we would have our pictures taken (Duke Farms in Hillsborough, NJ). On our wedding day he was extremely professional and courteous. After the wedding we received all of our proofs in both digital and tangible form. The album consultation was a breeze. The only problem we had, which really wasn't a problem at all, was the amount of time it took us to actually get our albums and DVD videos. We received our albums right before our 1 year anniversary, and our DVD didn't come until many months after our 1 year anniversary.

Let me say this, my husband and I have been married for over 2 years and we still do not have our wedding album or video. We can not get a straight answer as to when we will receive our wedding album and we can even get anyone to respond to us about our video. I will say that our photographer and videographer were great! It's too bad, we can't enjoy the work they did.
