Doug Forner Photography is absolutely AMAZING. Doug did our engagement pictures as well as our wedding pictures. We love our engagement pictures, and I can assume that we will love our wedding pictures when we get them. Doug Forner didn't waste time and keep us from our guests. We did outdoor pictures with the family and indoor pictures, and we were still able to mingle with our guests before everyone headed upstairs for the reception.

Doug was my first photographer for my wedding and always had me in a panic. He continuously cancelled my engagement photo shoots (even when they were booked weeks in advanced) because he said he "overbooked" himself. I rescheduled three times before becoming fed up with him and I told him that if I could not depend on him for my engagement photos, I could not depend on him for my wedding. He said that that was fine and he wishes that I would reconsider. Also, he told me that he would not refund me the $100 I had already paid him because it was a scheduling fee for my wedding. I told him that he had the worst customer service that I had every dealt with and I hope that he does not put other brides through this. I was just relieved that I found this out about him during my engagement photos, instead of at my wedding.

First let me say that we are in LOVE with how our pictures came out! We couldn’t have asked for anything better! Doug was an absolute joy to work with. He was very professional and personable throughout the entire process. He arrived early in the morning to capture myself, and the bridesmaids getting ready before the ceremony and stayed until our final walk out at the end of the reception. He was able to come up with solutions when it unexpectedly down poured, ruining our initial plans for outdoor pictures. His pictures are exactly what I wanted my wedding pictures to be. He is definitely worth every cent, you would have to be crazy to not book with Doug!

Very disappointed!!! I choose Doug Forner Photography because his price was great and his time was unlimited . But I guess it's true that "you get what you pay for". There is so much to say about my experience with this photographer I don't know where to start. On my wedding day I was running just a little bit behind. He was supposed to arrive at 3:30pm but he arrived at 3 which was good. I was not ready yet so he took pics of me getting my makeup done which was ok. But after that he was ready to go to the church. my sister-in-law had to tell him to take a dress picture with the shoes and bouquet (and I'm glad she did, otherwise I would not have that pic) she also said "take pics of her going down the stairs!" (those came out horrible) He didn't help much with posing. I have an 11 yr old daughter he took only one pic of me and her getting ready and her back was facing the camera. At the church he was extremely rude to my guest when it was time for the pics at the alter. Screaming for everyone to leave because the wedding was over and for them to go to the reception. Everyone was asking "where did you get this guy?" And at the reception most of the time I was wondering were he was. As far as my pictures goes, he was with us for about 6 1/2 hours and he only gave me around 560 photos. many of which were cropped and edited so he really only took about 520. most of the pics are not edited. And out of all of those I only really love about 30 photos. I got non of the classics (ring pic) and I did'nt realize it till after. I have almost no good pics of my guest. The quality of the photos are terrible. Some pictures were taken so far away and then zoomed in. I printed one of me and the groom for my mom's bday in a 10x13 and our faces are a little bit fuzzy. I cried about these photos for weeks after the wedding because after all the planning and all the money and time spent the photos is what is left of your wedding day. So pick wisely!

Horrible! Came off very professional in initial meeting and conversations prior to wedding. On the day of wedding he was very rude to family and bridal party. Did not capture good photos of ceremony or reception. He would disappear at times during the reception. He also did not take any pictures of guests during reception or of decorations.

One of the main things i stressed to him was that i wanted pictures of my dress prior to it being put on, these pictures are horrible and not even centered. He also did not calculate the bill right and advised me i owed him money still after the event. So keep your contract! I was able to produce mine and advised him he was wrong. He wasn't going to send me my disk until i proved him he was wrong and i did not owe him any money.

Originally, we were going to have family friends take our wedding photos, but we found out 2 months before our wedding date that they were not coming to the wedding. I had to find a photographer fast and for a good value as we did not budget for a photographer.

I found Doug Forner on the web, and he was running a special for less than $1000, we got unlimited time on our wedding day, free online hosting, and a High Res CD with rights to our photos. It was exactly what I was looking for!

Our photographer was named Gil and he was really good. He got all the shots that I had wanted and our First Look Photos came out amazing! We got alot of really awesome photos that I got to use to make my our scrapbook.

We got the CD with our images a week after our wedding, and he posted a "sneak peak" on his facebook page with 4 of our photos. He was very friendly and helpful all along the way. We were very happy with the service and photos we received.

I really enjoyed working with Doug Forner. He was friendly and professional and took the time to remember the names of the members of our family and friends. The proofs were available very quickly and the pictures are beautiful! We were really interested in his photojournalistic style and he did not disappoint. There were many beautiful photos of moments caught during the wedding, and I was really happy he captured them "unscripted". Overall, we really enjoyed our experience with Doug and can’t wait to get our DVD in the mail. I would recommend his services highly, and feel really lucky that we got a great photographer at a fantastic price!!

Doug did a great job with a huge family and remembered everyone's name and the relationships. He was also very flexible when our flowers were a bit delayed for the pre-wedding photos. My proofs were ready in less than 2 weeks - before we even returned from our honeymoon. He also doesn't require you to buy big expensive books if you don't want to and the reprint prices are very reasonable. The photos were GREAT!!

Doug Forner was recommended to me by two of my coworkers (he was their photographer over 10 years ago). Doug contacted me immediately and got my photo wish list and made unique recommendations for me. When he arrived at the wedding site, he immediately got all of the wish list photos as well as others. He knew all of our family members' names and was extremely efficient. He was able to get all of our photos easily (even though I was running one hour behind schedule!) We couldn't be more pleased with the results. I highly recommend Doug Forner and understand why he has been in business for so long.

I hired Doug because I got a GREAT deal. We met once before the BIG day to discuss what my husband and I were looking for and planned out the day. It wasn't until the night before when Doug called me and sat on the phone for over an hour as he asked questions. I don't mind talking on the phone, what I minded was it was the day of my rehearsal and I had family in town. On the wedding day he showed up and we began the day I felt like I had to tell him what I wanted pictures of. As the day went on and it got hotter outside, Doug got a but more snippy, giving some attitude when we asked for a particular picture that wasn't discussed on the phone previously. At the end of the day I have some nice pictures, but I do feel like I am missing some key pictures I would have liked to have (one picture of just the ring bearers and flower girls etc.).
