We are satisfied with the performance and service provided by Greg. He is a respectful professional with whom it is easy to work. All of our family and friends found him to be unobtrusive and pleasant. One more kudo — our wedding was an international and ethnic kaleidoscope of complexions and skin tones. Greg got all of them right.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with GV Photography. Greg was just wonderful. Everyone who has seen our pictures just loves them and is hoping to have Greg shoot their wedding (should they ever have one). The pictures came out better than we could have hoped. It was a very windy day and I was concerned that every picture would show someone with their hair flying all about, Greg timed the pictures just perfectly that you cant even tell it was such a blustery day. We spoke several times throughout the wedding and before and he answered any silly questions that we had and was patient with us. This was the first time we had gone through the wedding planning process we had lots of questions, he helped us through the process and was great fun to work with. Greg was very easy to work with, knowledgeable, courteous and friendly. He understood exactly what we wanted from start to finish and the final product was absolutely beautiful. We would absolutely recommend GV Photography to anyone for their wedding.

We recently employed Greg Verville of GV Photography to photograph our son’s wedding and are pleased to recommend him highly for reasons outlined below.
Due to a misunderstanding with the wedding organizers, we were obliged to make arrangements for a photographer in a distant city with only two weeks remaining. Having never hired a wedding photographer and with no chance to interview him/her, we were understandably nervous. We chose to go online and were attracted to Mr. Verville’s skills by the quality of the images on his website and by the manner in which he responded to our telephone calls. We found him very easy to communicate with and utterly reliable. He responded promptly to our numerous questions and accommodated every one of our requests. This was a large wedding consisting of diverse groups of people, and we were impressed by the manner in which he interacted with the different groups, gaining their confidence by the friendly and unobtrusive way in which he photographed them. He has a special knack for putting people at ease for portraits. The result is several hundred high quality images that capture all elements of an extended wedding ceremony and dinner.
His responsiveness was further evident in the post-wedding period when, in less than a week, he put these images on a website and provided us with DVD’s of downloadable high quality photos.
In summary, we couldn’t be more pleased; he is the consummate professional from start to finish. If you are looking for a highly skilled photographer who is dependable and works well with diverse individuals, we recommend Mr. Verville without reservation.

I am so happy with the service that Greg provided. His professionalism was amazing and made us all feel really comfortable. Thus, making the photos look natural and just simply gorgeous. He was attentive and on point on every family shot at the garden, church, and the party. I didn’t hire a Videographer and was worried but after seeing the photos, I felt relieved, the photos really tells the story of our wedding day and the price was so affordable. Greg was easy to work with, always reachable and polite. I will definitely refer him to all my friends and family.

Everything went so perfect!! From start to finish, the service with GV Photography was superb!! Everything Greg at GV Photography said they would do was exactly what we received, plus more! If you're looking for stress free photography service.. you will get stress-free service with GV Photography!!

Greg you and your 2nd photographer Jeremy are awesome photographers!! Very nice and just so easy to work with and talk to. We were very pleased and surprised how flexible and easy-going your team was. You both listened to to our wants and needs but also had really helpful suggestions making everything fit together even better than we could have wanted. Greg never seemed to take a break making make sure he captured every little and big moment throughout the night. It was crazy how most of the time we didn't even realize he was taking pictures, but he gave us a sneak peak of a few shots - awesome!! I can hardly wait to get the proofs and albums that will be the envy of all my friends and family.

Our wedding pictures are beautiful, Greg is an excellent photographer and
he made it so much "fun" to take pictures during our wedding. His
attention to detail is great, the pictures are perfect and he had them
ready for us before we got back from our honeymoon!

We found GV Photography online. Not having the chance to meet Greg before
the wedding made us feel a little uneasy, but he exceeded our expectations
and made our wedding day even more fun and special than we could have ever
dreamed of. His photography prices are great and worked well with our
budget. We really appreciate Greg's photography services and highly
recommend him for any wedding or special occasion. Thanks Greg for
everything!!

I couldn't have asked for more in a photographer. Greg took absolutely beautiful pictures of our wedding and surpassed our every expectation.

Plus he was SO easy to work with - we never worried about what he was doing. He showed up on time, rallied & organized everyone when it was time for group pictures, and made us all laugh while doing so. There was no drama or grief from him (which is more than I can say about my florist!)

I can't wait to share all the photos with our family and friends, and even our children one day! I am really thankful to have found such a great photographer and would absolutely recommend GV Photography to all you future brides.

Thank you for the amazing photos that you took at our wedding. They are so beautiful and are exactly what I was hoping for. It was a long day with probably the largest family you have ever seen but you were as energetic and funny on the last photo as you were on first of the day.Your friendly approach really helped me relax and be myself. Also, your attention to detail was impeccable and the way you handled my family and bridal party by making us laugh all day was priceless.Our family and friends have given us so many compliments about our photos and the great way you captured the moment and spirit of the wedding. Our wedding pictures will be cherished for a long time and we thank you for helping us create a lasting memory of that day. If I know anyone who is getting married in the Los Angeles area, we would certainly recommend you. Thank you again and take care!

We had been planning our wedding for 10 months when I lost my job. In trying to cut back costs, we almost canceled our contract with GV Photography. But Greg was willing to work with us to help us get what we want for our money. Now that everything is over, I am so glad that we stuck with him. Our pictures are incredible, and he caught everything that happened including my nephew falling into the fountain! We couldn't been happier.

Wedding nightmare come true, I would not recommend him to anyone; he has no integrity and is unstable.
We contract which he did not keep to and kept changing his words and what he wanted.
We gave him half the money up front, and were supposed to give him the rest after getting our photos.
He held us hostage to extra payment in cash the night of my wedding at our reception; he stopped photographing and demanded more money in cash to be paid to him right then and there. We had no choice my husband gave him cash on the spot after which he said he felt better and could continue.
When trying to obtain our disks from him after our wedding, he brought us the wrong disks, he had agreed to the give us the raw photos but when we asked for it and said he did not remember agreeing to that and then he lost it he started yelling and said he could not trust us to give him his money,
After my husband dangled the envelope full of cash in front of him, he said he would give us our disks after a hell of ordeal we finally got our photos. The photos were terrible, there was not creativity or art, he had nothing at all of what we expected, and we could have taken better photos with our armature cameras.
I would not recommend him to anyone he is a money hungry jerk whom takes advantage of good people and at a very critical time.

We had no issues with any of other vendors we used they were all professionals and treated us well and did a great job.
I would not wish what happened to us upon anyone and would not want anyone to go through that on their wedding night or after.

GV Photography responded with the following comments:

I've shot over 300 weddings and 500 live events with the vast majority of my clients extremely happy with the end product, and the rest very pleased, so I was shocked to see this.
Monetary gain is not the reason I do photography because chances are your not going to become wealthy doing it. The quality or cost of my photography has never been an issue with anyone else that I have
worked with in the 20 years I've been doing photography. I've never
tried to "cheat" or deceive anyone in my photography since that would be counter-productive and I value my integrity. I would gladly work with any client to solve any problem they had with me or my work if that ever arose.
