DO NOT DO IT. Leo is a snake. He completely missed our ceremony. He admired that he shorted us $2,600.00 worth of service. He did not offer to repay it and when asked he refused. He sent 110 crap photos that he valued at $2,600.00. His website used to claim a 100% money back guarantee. He claimed to have an A+ BBB. He claimed to be a PPA (Professional Photographers of America) member. He is none. He has removed them and we are going to be going to court for class advertising and breach of contract. He also forged my check to cash it early. I did receive that money back from the bank with no argument from Leo. When we wanted to do engagement pics, he was too busy. Just to meet with him for his services was on his time, not yours. His contract is over 20 pages and he would not allow it to leave his studio, which he no longer has. He uses "actions" when editing images, basically he sets up an edit, saves the presets and clicks edit all. This does not work. Feel free to contact me about this fraud if you still think you should hire him.

-be sure to read the contract word for word and ask lots of questions
-when emailing, write specific questions for him to respond to
-get everything you want in writing before signing a contract (example: length of fusion movie, specific photos you want) [example: our 5 minute fusion video did not include our vows, which we had said we wanted but did not have in written... so now we can pay for an 'upgraded special package' to get a longer video which may contain our vows'
-he takes good photos, there were just some key ones we were missing: like our kiss after exchanging vows and rings

BE CAREFUL, WE DID NOT GET WHAT WE EXPECTED!!

Leo is a complete snake. I wish we would have seen some reviews before we signed his lengthy contract. (Which he wouldn't let us take home to look over before signing) He was the biggest headache in an otherwise perfect wedding. He told us the whole time not to worry about shadows, or shirts being tucked in, etc because he would edit. Well guess what! No editing- poor quality. He has a good artistic view, but takes horrible pictures. (focuses on the wrong thing) We had to pay him months in advance and it took 8 (yes 8!) months to get our albums. My biggest advise to any bride and groom trying to plan their perfect day- don't book Leo

I would definitely recommend Leo Pilak as the photographer for a wedding. Although we have not received all the pictures yet (we will in about a week), the pictures I have seen so far are awesome. Leo puts up "teaser" pics a couple days after the wedding. There were about 110 of these pictures and they were really good! I cannot wait to see the rest of the pictures. Leo and the two other photographers that were there that day were awesome to work with. They really made us smile naturally because of their silliness and quirkiness! One word of advice though - if you are a person who doesn't like sarcasm or wittiness, do not choose Leo as your photographer. My husband and I loved his personality though, and he worked out great for us!

-Difficult to work with.
-Has been reluctant to answer questions. "It's in your contract."
-did not provide service that we wanted- Little "photojournalistic" photography, always out for the perfect shot.
-Dissappeared after ceremony, did not get family shots after ceremony, or of cocktail hour before.

If you decide to go with this photographer, make sure you give him a list of pictures you want. I didn't even get a picture of our kiss at the end of the ceremony! There were no posed pictures of just me in my dress. He had an assistant there taking pictures but I never saw any of those pictures. The photos I got were very good. Maybe I just didn't get the best service because I took advantage of a deal he was offering. I know he can do great work based on his samples and the photos he did get at my wedding. I just would have liked him to capture the whole wedding.
