Working with lasting memories was one of the most unpleasant experiences for me and my wife. I was referred to the business by a very close friend. The owner of the business, Vishal, was very helpful in the initial meetings, but that’s where it all ended. The photographer he sent to our wedding was so disengaged, I might as well not have had any photographer. The photographer missed a lot of vital moments during the wedding. Just to give you an example, there is no picture of me with my immediate family during the wedding. There is no picture of me and my wife with our entire family. The videographer was the same way. The whole video was shot on a DSL instead of a video camera. After the wedding it took Vishal almost 4 weeks to send us the pictures and they were nothing more than extracts from the camera. When I inquired about it, he said the final product would be much better. Another couple of months later he sent me the draft for the album and it was the same crappy photos that he had showed me before with no edits made. I sent a formal email to him with my negative feedback and he simply ignored it. I sent that email on Jan 6th and after that have tried contacting him at least 4 times and he has ignored all my communication.

I would highly recommend no one use his business for their wedding photography needs.

If anyone would like to talk to me about his experience and get more information, please email me at tink.23.90@gmail.com.

Overall, we were very pleased with the service and quality of the photos. However, we were not as pleased with how long it took us to receive our video. We were told that it would take 2 to 3 months. In fact, it took 5 months. We would highly recommend for photography. We would not recommend for video.

Note: Make a list off ALL of the photos that are must haves (i.e. ALL family and guests).

Lasting Memories did an amazing job in all aspects for the photography of my wedding. Every detail was covered for our destination wedding and our photographer showed great passion in not only his work, but making our special day the most memorable that it could be. Their artistic ability surpasses any that I have seen compared to other wedding vendors. Their packages and prices are very reasonable and flexible. I would highly recommend them to any bride searching for the best photography to capture those special moments on their wedding day.

High quality and a reasonable price and great service is what you will get with Lasting Memories.

My amazing wedding looked even better in Vish's photos and albums than they did in real life! He did such amazing work that we kept ordering more and more albums. We couldn't get enough of his incredible masterpieces.

absolutely awful. Lasting memories cut out crucial parts of my ceremony as well as important family members. The editors dubbed over my original music with their own songs. A live feed was promised, but not delivered. The owner, Vishal, refused to refund a penny of my money. He re-made the dvds and mailed them out but when I asked if he previewed them to make sure all of the missing parts were fixed, he said he had not seen the whole thing. He couldnt back up a product that he sold and has awful customer service skills. I highly DO NOT recommend this guy or his company.

The quality of their work was amazing and more than I expected. Overall, the service that they provide is worth much more than then I paid. They took care of everything and made my day stress less, that for me was priceless.
