We used Michelle for a July wedding. it's now December and she's next to impossible to reach. We have yet to see pictures--when we tried to reach her, her phone numbers and emails had changed. She had moved to Iowa. We were not informed of any of these changes. We tracked her down through multiple photographers in Grand Junctions and had to call her at work in order to talk with her. She is now avoiding calls from us and is not getting pictures to us. She was fantastic on our wedding day, but is making it incredibly difficult to get the pictures we paid her for.... I would'nt recommend her because of the difficulty in getting our pictures. Very disappointing.

This photographer is the worst ever!!!! It might seem like her pictures are the greatest pictures you've seen, but good luck ever getting your wedding pictures back she took. My best friend got married june/2009, didn't get her pictures till a year later. Not only that but this lady took off OUT OF STATE! Didn't tell anyone, changed her phone number, address, email. When my friend threatened to take her to court, she finally gave her the pictures, but the pictures were awful, like someone took them with a disposable camera. If you're looking for a good photographer, GO WITH FIFTH GEAR PORTRAIT DESIGNS!

I have had the same experience as all the rest of these poor brides that have also reviewed Michelle Means. She was absolutely horrible!!!!! It was one of the worst experiences of my life, which is not something you want to go through after your wedding! She was great to your face. She seemed friendly and sweet and I would never have suspected anything. She was great on my wedding day, but after is when the trouble started. It took her six months to even post half of my pictures online for me to view. Then, she moved out of state to Iowa without letting me know. She would not answer any of my calls. I had to get a lawyer to write her a letter before she would even call me. She promised to get everything to me, but still nothing happened. Finally, I had to send her a court summons to let her know that I was serious. After eleven months, we finally got our pictures. They were great pictures, but she was not worth the hassle. I know that I wouldn't have gotten my pictures if I hadn't filed a small claims against her. SHE IS A HORRIBLE PHOTOGRAPHER AND A HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE PERSON! DO NOT HIRE HER!!!!

My husband and I got married in October and used Michelle Means, Forever yours photography. I can not express how disgusted and horrified I am on every aspect of the service. It is now the end of July and we have not received our photos, engagement session, a CD, NOTHING! We have heard excuse after excuse from her after she drops off the face of the earth for months at a time. I also have a friend who hired her to photograph her wedding a month before mine and the same thing happened. She took the money showed up for the wedding and took off with the photos and our money. She has yet to return another brides deposit after the bride cancelled Michelle as her photographer. She heard what Forever Yours was all about and decided to go with a true professional instead. NEVER use, support, or even think about using this photographer. You will not only be out your money, but your pictures of a life time. It’s very sad.

She does amazing work and made us feel completely comfortable during our engagement session and at our actual wedding. She has a great personality and is fun to work with. The only problem we had was her responsiveness timing. Kinda on the slow side...I felt like I was stalking her a few times, but she came around eventually. We cut her some slack because she was booked basically the entire spring, summer, and beginning of fall. Things worked out for the best and we've loved the photos she took.

Michelle Means did our wedding and wow what a headache it has been. She does great quality work but talk about pulling teeth to get what you paid for delievered to you in a timely matter. Did not get my engagement pictures until a week before the wedding, so much for being able to use them for anything before hand. Got married in July and it took until December/January to be able to see them online and then took until April to get the ones I wanted. Videographer did a horrible job putting the wedding video together. Been almost a year since we got married and still do not have the albums to put the photos in or the cd of all the pictures to go with it. You can never get a hold of her and if you do it is one story after the other. The pictures look amazing but if you ever want to see your photos before you die then do not choose her.

I am writing this to warn all brides of this Photographer!!!! First I would like to say she is very nice to your face and is good at selling her services to you, but after she takes the pictures WATCH OUT!!! We hired Michelle Means dba Forever Yours Photographer for a summer 2009 wedding. We selected her most expensive package at the time, $2000.00! We waited over 3 months for our photos to be posted online then, waited 7 MONTHS to finally get our pictures. When our albums arrived they were poorly put into CHEAP $10 albums from Wal-Mart, not something you would expect for wedding photos. We called dozens of times with no response and our emails were never returned. It was not until we filed a court complaint in Mesa County Colorado, that we received the rest of the contracted items. There were other problems with people who ordered pictures from her having to wait over 2 MONTHS to get them. Our friends used her and 6 months later...thats right NO PICTURES. So I warn you to be careful of this photographer for your special day!!!! She is the queen of excuses and will avoid talking to you at all cost. And how long do you want to wait for your pictures?
