We had Jack take our engagement photos and wedding photos and both were wonderful experiences. Jack and his co-photographer Janet are punctual, professional, and take amazing shots. They recommended we take our engagement photos at Mission San Juan and I'm so glad we did. The varied backdrops and colors made it look like we were in Europe. This also allowed us an opportunity to meet with Jack prior to our wedding. On the wedding day, they arrived early and after seeing the sky, hustled us out to the beach a few minutes earlier than anticipated, and boy was it worth it! Our sunset beach shots are amazing!!! Jack and Janet were quick, efficient and easy to work with. Our wedding was on Sat and our photos were ready for pick-up on Tues. (3 days later)! Talk about fast service. I would absolutely recommend hiring Jack Randall Photography for your photography needs.

I used Jack Randall for my wedding because he was recommended by our wedding venue. I had such high hopes and was soooooo disappointed. First of all, after having an engagement session with him in Feb. I did not hear from him at all until I called myself two days before my wedding in October to confirm time and schedule. HE was very unorganized and misplaced the date and time. Then the day of the wedding, all of my friends and family said that they were disappointed with how he was taking photos but I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt.
When it came time to pick up our pictures, I saw that they were dark, out of focused and very poorly taken. Our faces are little specs and can barely be seen. The worst part is that when I asked if he was going to enhance any of the pictures for our photo album, he tells me that we have to pay an ADDITIONAL fee to correct any photos! I can't believe that when you pay thousands of dollars for a professional photographer, they don't include any photo retouching. This should have been put into our contract. He is truly a scam artist, and doesn't care about your experience or pictures. The worst part of all is that our wedding is done and over with and we don't even have a single nice photograph to remember it by. The best pictures I do have were taken by friends and family using their own cameras. Jack offered no compensation whatsoever and was very difficult to work with. Please future brides beware and take careful consideration when choosing your wedding photographer.

SCAM! Be aware, for their supposedly $220 value engagement shoot package, you will put in more than 1 hour of you and your fiancé’s time with all your heart & hope, YET you pretty much get NOTHING out of it!!! (you ONLY get 1 image and that’s it!! And no digital image at all.) plus, they are not even sorry how upsetting this is to the clients that they disappointed (they make you feel very stupid on the phone).

I bought their wedding channel deal for an $220 value engagement shoot session. And I am VERY disappointed that I don’t get any images out of it!! They said the $220 value package covers 1 hour engagement shoot plus 1 bonus free print out. Normally an 1 hour $220 engagement shoot means you get the digital images of your pictures (at least a reasonable amount of images), and the free print out would be the extra. However, only after we’ve put in all our time, energy and hopes into the full hour engagement shoot, I’ve found out that the 1 picture is ALL you get! If you want more images of your own engagement shoot pictures, you will have to PAY EXTRA FOR EVERYTHING!!!! What a scam this is!!!!!! Again, be very aware, for their supposedly $220 value package, you ONLY get 1 image and that’s it!! This is very upsetting and disappointing, if they plan to give their clients no digital images and plan to have them pay extra for everything afterwards, then they should really have that spelt out in their packages. Even more upsetting, when I confronted them about it (the lady I spoke to is named Connie), she took NO responsibility at all and said it’s Wedding Channel’s wording, so not their fault. She further implies that it’s the clients’ own fault to expect getting any images from the $220 value package…… I can’t believe this! I feel very CHEATED!!!

They get ½ star because the photographers who took the pictures were actually very nice (NOT Jack; I have not met or spoken to Jack so far and I don’t know where he stands in this upsetting tricky situation). The nice photographers worked hard as if you were actually getting the pictures, like it actually mattered. So I don’t think they were in on the scam. It’s the way the office is run that’s unbelievably horrible! Their staff on the phone (Connie) definitely had an indifference attitude and was not helpful at all. Her uncaring demeanor convinced me that this WAS NOT an honest mistake BUT an intentional SCAM! They don’t tell you that you actually get virtually NOTHING out of the photo shoot, so that you get your hopes and anticipation up for the results. Since you get yourself so excited about the images, you will probably end up spending A LOT MORE money just to keep a few – that’s what they are counting on! Again, I’m unbelievably disappointed!!!!! Jack Randall Photography’s $220 value engagement shoot package WASTED both my money and my time, and more importantly, RUINED my happy wedding planning. Unless they try to make up their wrong-doing (which has not happened), you should STAY FAR AWAY FROM THEM!!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely beautiful photography and videography! Jack and Karen were absolutely AMAZING...and were worth every penny. Staff was fun to work with yet very professional, and communicated wonderfully. No doubt that they captured the most beautiful moments of our wedding.

Jack Randall is defiantly not worth the money he thinks he is! I would not recommend using this company. We have had multiple friends who have recently been married, their pictures were amazing and were half the price. There was no creativity or enthusiasm. He was late to our event. Our pictures were mediocre. There were hardly any intimate pictures taken of the two of us together, which was very disappointing. To top it off they have you send in a list of your favorite pictures to be placed in an album, but you have no say in how they put the album together. So, if you don't like the way they format the photo's, or the backgrounds they choose you have to pay for the changes yourself! We had alot of issues with Jack Randall and his staff who were very rude. Their customer service was very poor, like they did not care about us after we paid them. It took them weeks to correspond with us about our issues. They took our special day, our memories and something that should have been enjoyable and made it very stressful and unpleasant. Every time we look at our pictures we get frustrated. NOT WORTH THE MONEY!
