OUTSTANDING!!!! Our wedding pictures turned out absolutely beautiful thanks to JOANNA our Photographer. We couldn't ask for more. Reasonable pricing, professional & patient photographer with great ideas, prompt service (our photos were posted online within 10 days) and best yet we own the rights to the CD copy of our pictures. Hands down a great deal! Thank you Joanna!!!!

The overall quality of our pictures was nice however for the price we paid we expected better lighting, less shadows under our noses, etc. Our photographer Mike Molloy was a good salesman prior to the wedding. However even though some things were in writing, he explained that some of the policies changed regarding the pricing of the reprints offered to our guests after the wedding was over.
We were pleased with the amount of pictures taken (900+) and we are very pleased with the journalistic style of photography that he provided us with. We are extremely happy to have been provided with the CD so that we can put our money towards more trusted companies to print our pictures wherever we please. I must also mention that I had one very important request for our photographer on our wedding day that I stated on the very first day we met with him after signing the contract and he blew it off completely- I was too hectic to remember the idea amidst all the excitement of the day.
One other occurrence was that our photographer had not provided us with the Rights to our engagement photos prior to the wedding and when I went to get a couple of them printed for our guest book, I was denied the right to have them printed because I had not been provided the proper paperwork from our photographer. He resolved the problem on the day of the wedding but it took him away from 1 hour of photography that he should have been taking of our preparations. I'm not positive I could feel great about spreading a good word about this photography company or at least not good things about our photographer in particular.

Unfortunately I had a very disappointing experience with this company. Photos on the website were great however their service does not match. There were several occasions where the staff was slow to respond and I had to either call or email multiple times. I wanted to speak to my photographers before the wedding to make sure that they understood what I wanted. When my lead photographer did call me back he had a really heavy accent and was difficult to understand and communicate with. I went into the wedding praying that everything would turn out alright! On the day of our wedding the photographers were disorganized, seemed uncomfortable commanding a group and settng up group shots and also got lost between the church and the reception site (which were 1-block apart) causing us to wait in the limo for 45 minutes. Afterwards, I wanted to touch up a photo and was charged $85, which I didn't find clear in the contract but since I wanted one really good photo of us both looking at the calendar, I paid it. Since then I have also been charged more than $50 in shipping charges, twice. They were also unwilling to compromise on those charges. After spending nearly $2000 on a photography package I was really surprised that they refused to work with me in any way. Doesn't appear that they value customer service.

We did however have some good pictures which I'm thankful for. I am convinced though that this was only possible because we had hired an amazing videographer who knew the best photo spots and setup all of the poses for us. Of all of the vendors that we chose, this was our worst experience by far.

I'm sorry to say that I would not recommend this company.

Scott at Clark Photographics was wonderful to work with. He had a quick response time to all emails and phone messages and provided a lot of great advice for photography. Photographer Lydia was very professional and did a fantastic job capturing all candid and artistic shots and did not spend as much time on the formal posed shots, just as I had requested. The online photos were posted less than 3 weeks after the wedding and we are anxiously awaiting the album-making process

I chose Clark Photographics to photo our wedding after shopping around at a few different vendors. Their was prices were comparable to other vendors, but it was significantly cheaper for our guests to order prints. Meeting with Scott was very personable and he was always quick to return my calls. Our photographer was very professional and he too so many great shots. He was responsive to our suggestions and requests for pictures. And, of course, our pictures came out beautiful.

Scott was an excellent photographer. He was very flexible in working with us on logistics. In addition, the photos were outstanding...we even had him do a family portrait a year later as a gift to my parents.

The costs of ordering photos for guests is much lower than you will find at other vendors. In addition, most of his packages include an engagement portrait session, and free travel within 50 miles or so from his studio at Fullerton/Clark. Proofs came back within the 3 to 4 weeks promised.

Scott also assisted us with the design of our wedding album which was one of the best purchases we made by including it in our package. We weren't originally going to buy the package that included the albums but it is well worth the additional cost and much more affordable than other vendors in Chicago.

I was so thrilled with how beautiful my pictures turned out. I cannot even explain how great they are. He was on time, professinal and courteous. And when we went in to book him, he went over dozens of options with us. I would recommend him to anyone to use.
