I found out today that Issa Michel disputed the review that I previously posted on this page . I received an email from weddingwire advising that he took the time to dispute my review but still didn't have the time to fulfill the contract that we sign for my wedding on March 2012 . I'm still waiting for the 2 photo albums that I was promised . He has my address , email , phone number , fb account and he totally avoided any type of contact... I encourage all of his past clients in the same situation to join forces and demand what we paid for .. Issa Michel , I know that you still access this site so will see this review .
Unbelievable, 2 years and 7 months after my wedding and still waiting for this man to give the photo books that he promised .

Issa did a good job photographing out wedding. He was really creative and had some great ideas for pictures. He was really easy going and didn't even seem to mind my crazy aunt being really pushy about family poses. He did not let the stress of the day get to him at all. You can tell he has a lot of experience photographing weddings.

Issa is a joke. Completely ruined my wedding experience. It has been over a year and I have not heard from him. He showed up after I was already in my dress on my wedding day, and seemed to spend more time focusing on food, and going outside during the wedding instead of capturing moments that should have been captured. This doesnt even count the month and a half he went MIA and we thought he was going to flake on us and he claimed he had our phone numbers written down wrong (yet they were in our contract). He also claims that he moved. I received my flash drive of photos for selections and sent it back to him shortly after I got them, and I have never heard from him after that. I have tried printing out my photos and enlarging them myself and they come out blurry. I cannot believe that any human being would ever strive to do this to someone on one of the most important days of their lives. I have texted, emailed and called him several times, with no response. I have had friends try to contact him, also with no response.His website has now been deactivated, phone goes straight to voicemail for ~5 months (but voicemail is never full which makes me feel like he avoiding me cause he KNOWS he is caught), and I researched that he was practicing under an expired business license when my contract was signed. Now, I have enlisted the help of a lawyer to sue him for damages and breach of contract. I hope this guy realizes what hes in for. Too bad he couldn't just give me all of my money back, or just provide me with images that I can use and my wedding album. TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS DEFINITELY NOT WELL SPENT! and to think we were also fooled to give him a decent tip at the end of it all.

Horrible!!!! Not sure what happened last year but 2013 is a complete FAIL for Issa Michel. Check the BBB for his 4 F ratings this year alone and I have not even written to them yet. We are a very easy going couple but this guy is a hot mess. Do not want to go into detail but just DO NOT use his services because he will be nothing like you expect and you want your wedding and other events to be memorable.

We had a great time working with Issa for our wedding. He had some good ideas for our first look and first dance. Our bridal party thought he was a lot of fun. His performance on the wedding day was flawless. Overall, he is a great artist and can really work a room with his camera. We agree that it can be a little tough to get an immediate reply to a text or email, but he does get back to you (what seems like) as soon as he can. We expected a one man show to have a lot going on at once, and we were pretty laid back about it, so we didn't really mind. We see no reason not to recommend him to everyone, his portfolio is great and his prices are competitive.

We loved everything about working with Issa! He was so in tune with us on our wedding day. Very quick on his feet, and very artistic. Our wedding pictures are so beautiful. Our guests LOVED him! He's fun to interact with and very animated when doing large group portraits.

My wife and I were married on 27 October 2012. Issa was out photographer for the day. However, leaving the day of the wedding out for the sake of brevity, dealing with Issa afterwards to get pictures and finally our albums was often an exercise in futility. He never took phone calls, would send cryptic message always concerning some new unfortunate set of circumstances that had befallen him. He routinely ignored any messages I sent and would only respond to my wife, even though I am 13 hours ahead in Korea I attempting many times to call and email but to no avail. It was not until my wife and I threatened legal action that he became responsive and tried to garner empathy from us for the predicament he put his business in through a failed marketing campaign. The day we had the paperwork ready to file in court we received our blow ups for the walls and confirmation the books had been printed.

Overall professionalism was lacking and artistic merit is well below the standard one would expect. Poor quality is prevalent throughout his shots and color he chose to highlight in certain pictures. He even photo shopped eyes over one of our groomsmen using the eyes from the guy next to him. It made my friend look like Tori Spelling. Poor Quality, limited artistic vision, unresponsive unless it is about you paying him, and little to no professionalism.

Working with Issa was a beautiful experience. We were treated wth such care and professionalism the entire day! He is such a good photographer and is very talented at setting up shots. We were nervous that having too many people in our bridal party would prevent us from getting all the romantic shots we wanted, but that was not the case! Issa's experience was so valuable!! He was terrific at directing us, as well as our bridal party, to ensure the best possible pose. His photographs are terrific and he is a pleasure to work with. My husband and I confidently recommend Issa!

You do NOT want to choose this guy. You would never guess that this seemingly nice and super friendly guy would ever stiff you. He didn't take great pictures at all. It took him almost 3 months to give us the CD and that was after repeated calls and emails to him. The worst part is that he never provided us our wedding album and it's been over a year! He would not answer anymore calls or emails and only replied after we advised we would take legal action. He tries to make you feel sorry for him, but then won't deliver in the end. He said he would get us the album but never has.
