It took three months+ to view my wedding photos. It's been almost five months and I still don't have a single print, album, or disc of my pictures. Considering Lilies was slow taking pictures and the pictures turned out less than desirable.

Considering Lilies Photography responded with the following comments:

It is very difficult to respond to an anonymous review, especially since 5 months prior to the date of this review would have been mid-May, when the only wedding I had was done as a gift to a dear friend's daughter.

Our clients are told that our turnaround time to post all of their images is 8-10 weeks. We did experience a bit of delay this year due to a complete computer failure. which can happen to anyone. Because of how important our clients' memories are to me, I back up files in triplicate, one of which is off-site-- therefore, I lost no images. What I did lose, however, is time. It took a bit of time to order, reconfigure and set up preferences on a new computer system, putting me at a time crunch at my busiest time. That being said, no one waited more than 11 weeks, which is a week late. I realize to a bride, that is a long time, I really do. Most of my clients have been more than understanding and completely thankful that because of our carefulness, nothing was lost.

As for the quality of the images themselves, I have had no complaints of this nature expressed to me.

I care deeply for each and every couple that comes my way. I've done this for 16 years+ and photographed hundreds of weddings. I have treated every wedding with the care that I would give my own children. However, I am human and everyone has shortcomings. I am working very hard on answering emails and phone calls more quickly. I realize there have been times I have been slower to respond than expected.

I'll start off by saying that Kim is very sweet and you can tell that she has a passion for photography. As for the quality of the wedding pictures themselves, we were pleased. I felt like I was left wanting more pictures of our guests though. Kim's style is photo journalistic (and those shots are great!) but at the end of the day you want to see photos that include the faces of your guests....either at church, dinner or the reception. Especially since the day goes by so quickly, and you aren't able to spend as much time as you'd like with everyone. There were quite a few family members and lots of friends who we have no pictures of at all.

My only other complaint would be that Kim didn't offer much direction when it came to gathering and posing our family and wedding party for pictures after the ceremony. For bridal party pictures, I felt like my bridesmaids and I were picking out picture spots/ideas more-so than Kim was. Kim's style is to hang back and just let things happen. Unfortunately, on your wedding day - there are time constraints and you need to keep things moving along.

With that being said - if you tell Kim that there is something specific you want, she will make it happen. On your wedding day though, you're feeling pretty all over the place and you want your photographer to anticipate a lot of these types of things.

Lastly, I found communication with Kim very difficult. It took just over 10 weeks to receive our wedding pictures (which was fine), but it would have been nice to receive timely responses to my e-mail inquiries. Same went for our wedding album (which we paid for as part of our package). I sent many e-mails to Kim about our book and it was like pulling teeth to get a response, much less the actual album (which arrived the week after our 1 year anniversary).

Kim and the entire Considering Lilies team did a phenomenal job of capturing the love, joy, tears and excitement of my wedding day. From the moment I stepped into my dress, they were there snapping photos, giving me advice and helping to make me comfortable. Kim was quick to get us a sneak peek after our wedding was over so that I could share them with friends and family. We also used Considering Lilies for our engagement pictures and a photo booth during our reception. I cannot say enough good things about the talent, cooperation and creativity of this team. I hope to use them again in the future. Thanks you CLP!

I don't know what to expect from our photos. We were rushed and didn't get a some of the poses I was hoping for, but Kim's photojournalistic style is what I like, so I'm hopeful that she captured a lot of great candid moments.

This is one of those reviews that I absolutely hate to write.

First, I will say that we loved working with Kim and her staff on a personal level. They were so sweet and made us feel really comfortable. Our photos were the ONE thing we really wanted to "splurge" on in our wedding- and we felt it was going to be worth it to go with them.

I hate to say it but we have had nothing but issue after issue in working with them as far as communication goes. We received the digital proofs of our wedding photos in a relatively timely manner, but after that, everything has gone drastically downhill. They cashed the (very large) check for our wedding album five months ago and we have yet to see our product. Two months ago, after contacting them and failing to get a response, I went so far as to request a refund- I was going to have our product made somewhere else. I was offered an apology and a promise that the album would be done immediately and I would have it within about three weeks. We are now on week #10 and I have yet to see the product. I was told it came in over a week ago but they have still not mailed it out to me. I love the people at CLP but I cannot believe they are not trying to make things right... and it's like pulling teeth trying to get a response from anyone except Kim's assistant (who, I will add, has been absolutely awesome.)

On top of that, while we were happy with the quality of the photos, we both were disappointed in the content of them. We felt that there were many "normal" photos that were left out. I do not have any photos of me with each bridesmaid or me with my siblings. A bride is very "scatter-brained" on her wedding day- so maybe I should've made a list of EVERY single photo I wanted, but many of them were very "normal" photos that every bride gets- they should have been taken without me having to mention them.

Again- VERY sweet people, but very hard to work with. I hate to say it, but my honest recommendation is to go elsewhere.

Considering Lilies Photography responded with the following comments:

I am very sad that you feel this way. Not knowing who you are, I don't know how to respond. I do not know of anyone who has requested a refund, at least to my knowledge. Please contact me so that I can respond directly to you and address your concerns.

Regarding "normal" photos... our brides are all given an information sheet to fill out. On it is a list of the normal groupings we cover (that most people ask for). There is also an area to list the ones that are not on the list. Individual bridal party shots are not that often requested, nor are sibling photos. However, if they are requested, we are always happy to do them. I realize these groupings are nice, but often we have time constraints, and the things that are requested are prioritized. Had I realized these were important, I would have moved Heaven and earth to be sure we got them.

Considering Lilies did our daughter's engagement and wedding photo's. Can I just say AMAZING! Jamie Koluch did the photo's along with Clayton Frutig. Between the 2 of them I don't think there was a shot they missed. They arrived early in the morning to capture hair and make-up and got some great candid shots there, then went with us to the wedding and dealt with all the people very professionally. I had told them I was surprising our daughter with some butterflies to release and they got some gorgeous shots of them being released. They were there until the very end and even got them leaving through the sparkler send off we gave them. They put a slideshow together with music, within a week, that was fabulous for our guests to see.
I would highly recommend them to anyone. Great people and awesome photo's! Now, we just have to choose out of all the great pictures!!!
