Ok, wedding photography is expensive. They get it. That's why they print everything from prints to canvases to fancy albums all in-house. They are able to keep their prices as low as possible and provide excellent service. Our photos turned out so great! Mike was so aware of the lighting, and it shows in every picture. There are a lot of artistic details that he captured throughout the day. He made us feel comfortable and at ease...I felt like a model just hamming it up on camera, especially while getting ready. My venue provides 30 minutes between the ceremony and reception for family and group shots, and Mike nailed it! He was right on point and got all the right people together, snapping about 3 shots of each pose or group. He really captured everyone having fun, and captured so many loving moments up close. Wow. I can't wait to get these printed.

When planning our wedding day with Rhonda she made it so easy. When she called you could tell just how excited she was to be part of our wedding day. There was one little glitch in our plan- Dave and I wanted some of our wedding pictures taken in downtown Annapolis after the reception. Unfortunately, the Annapolis Boat Show was that weekend. When I discovered this I was really upset and told Rhonda. Without skipping a beat Rhonda said, “Don’t worry, I have an even better location that will overlook all of Annapolis.” She found the most perfect location, Jonas Green Park, that had the skyline of Annapolis. We were able to get shots with Annapolis in the background as well as shots of us on the beach. They turned out to be our favorite pictures of the day!
As far as for the rest of the wedding day, Rhonda was equally as amazing. She somehow was always there, but never seen. She showed up early at my parent’s house where we were getting ready and immediately began working. She got so many wonderful pictures of my girls, my mom, and myself getting ready. She even noticed a tree that had lavender flowers (which was one of our wedding colors) in our front yard and asked if I minded my dress being hung from the tree. She got a lot of really neat shots of my dress this way! During the ceremony she got an array of shots from up on a balcony all the way to her laying on the floor and capturing some really great shots. During the reception I didn’t notice her once yet she somehow got pictures of us holding hands while eating dinner and dancing on the dance floor. She blended in with all of the guests but didn’t get in the way at the same time. With the variety of shots taken by Rhonda it almost seemed as if there were multiple photographers at our wedding!! Our photos were available online within two weeks!
Overall, I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Rhonda. Rhonda was able to capture our wedding day beyond our expectation! Highly recommend!!

We had a very positive experience working with Life Gallery Studio. Scott was our main contact in the beginning and helped set us up with a contract that suited our needs and fit our budget. Scott also made sure to collect information from us as far as what types of pictures are important to us, starting time, location, etc. Scott has a great personality. Very friendly and easy to work with. Scott assigned Mike as our photographer for our wedding day. Mike was incredible and basically moved like a ninja all night. If something was going on, Mike was getting a picture of it. We just got access to the website with all of our pictures from the wedding and Mike did not disappoint. The shots are great. It will be difficult to choose which ones to print. We highly recommend Life Gallery Studio.

Scott was my contact person from the beginning. He was great with answering all my questions and making sure they got all the information they needed. He asked me some questions, and had me look at pictures, and set us up with Rhonda. She did our engagement shoot and wedding and she was just amazing! I haven't actually seen the pictures from our wedding yet, as we aren't that far our from the wedding, but I could tell she got some amazing shots with out being obtrusive. I can't wait to see the final products!
Their packages are comprehensive and priced fairly.

Finding a photographer was probably one of the most difficult parts of planning our wedding for me. Of course we wanted really great pictures without spending an excessive amount of money. I asked for a lot of recommendations and someone on WW pointed me in the direction of Life Gallery Studio. I emailed Scott and got an immediate response from him about their pricing and portfolio. We made an appointment to meet and he graciously offered to meet us in Columbia even though their main office is in Vienna. This was especially nice since our venue had suggested a photographer in that same area that was not very flexible and offered nearly impossible meeting times considering we live in Baltimore. Scott showed up on time and brought a lot of information, photos, and photo books with him. He was extremely nice and took the approach of explaining everything to us that we could possibly need to know. What I really liked about him was that there was never a hard sell with him. He clearly wanted us to make the best decision for us whether it was his company or not. In the end, that is one of the reasons why we chose him. Rhonda was the photographer assigned to us for our engagement photos and wedding. She had a great sense of humor and was very nice, showing us how to pose, giving us ideas, and making us very comfortable with her. Even when I was speaking with her going over the schedule, location (which she was very helpful in helping us chose), and quantity of pictures I wanted, she was always very friendly and patient. She did a great job and made sure we had a lot of photos as well as all of the shots that I had asked for. She was also very patient in dealing with our "family" photographers and was just pushy enough to get the photos we wanted but kind enough that everyone got the pictures they wanted to. I always got my pictures in a timely manner and felt that Scott and Rhonda were always responsive to any of my requests.

Scott gave us the initial overview of the package options for our wedding and was really knowledgable and seemed to know exactly what we were looking for. They have a process in place that allows them to select the perfect photographer for your style. Rhonda was our day-of photographer and took some absolutely amazing pictures! At the end of the big day, the pictures are all that's left, and we couldn't be happier with how this amazing memory was captured by Rhonda!

Don't be skeptical of the reasonable price... We couldn't be more pleased with the decision we made. It took me awhile to find one we were happy with, we were so thankful they could accept us last minute and worked with what we wanted. Our photographer and the experience was phenomenal! My husband and I met with Scott who wasn't the photographer on the day of but he showed us all of our options for wedding albums and discussed the prices, answered all of our questions and stayed in contact with us throughout the time leading up to our wedding. The photographer Rhonda was just fabulous and she got some great shots, and got almost all of our pictures we requested. They were just a great group of people to work with and we hope we can use them again in the future!

Life Gallery Studio has won awards for a reason, and they lived up to their reputation at our wedding. There were a few mishaps on the wedding day, that were not the photographers fault, but he compensated well. Our photographer was very efficient in getting shots done in a timely manner, knowing we were on a time crunch. He was flexible with us in the location of our shots (there was a really cool playground outside the church we got married at) and captured great moments in the spontaneous location. We are very pleased with our pictures and are impressed with how many different types of pictures there were. Mike was very professional and we would highly recommend him. The only thing we wish we could have done is meet our photographer before the wedding day, this would have been helpful to us. Scott was also a great help setting up their services to us, he was very professional and kept in great communication throughout our engagement.

We appreciated that he called us before the wedding to go over the day and make sure everything was set and as stress free as possible. He did a great job posing everyone for the formal photos and was able to capture all of the fun at the reception. He got photos of just about every guest whether it be formal or in the moment! We can't wait to design our album and start framing photos!

Don't let the reasonable price fool you...
Having located this photographer via the net (theknot.com) I was a bit skeptical when I decided to just go with it. I couldn't be more pleased with the decision we made. Our photographer was phenomenal! We'd expressed that we were interested in more photojournalistic photos--spending a limited amount of time taking staged/traditional photos. I feel as though she gave us an opportunity to really enjoy our celebration by not sacrificing a lot of time--while still capturing every moment of our special day. She was prompt and so knowledgeable on optimizing photo opportunities (she'd visited the venue prior to). Moreover, she was engaging and made sure we were satisfied with our photo opportunities. Lastly, Scott (owner) was truly accommodating and on-top of getting our photos to us in a timely manner (less than two weeks). We've already recommended two of our friends--they were impressed with their level of service as well. Thank you LGS for your superb work and dedication to providing quality work.

Life Gallery Studio disputed this review, claiming a duplicate. I'm skeptical, but decided to revert this review to it's original purely because they did try to help our initial disappointment.

The bad:
We were less than pleased with the end products we received and our photographer, Rhonda. Before we booked, I specifically asked if the photographers went to scout out photo locations at the venue before the day of the wedding and the answer was yes, of course. When I spoke with Rhonda, she said that she would google it and get there half an hour early. I wasn't happy that she wouldn't be scouting out the location as I was previously told. I also let her know that the area could be very confusing and that it would be best to at least look at the online map so she doesn't get lost. As I was on my way to the venue the day of our wedding, Rhonda called me, panicked, because she was lost and no one could give her good directions. I really did not appreciate a panicked phone call 20 minutes before doing our first look. She also called my husband a ding-dong. My husband and I were not amused or pleased that a hired vendor called him names. It was unprofessional, to say the least.
We were very displeased with the photos. In almost all of her photos, she has an upward angle which gives most people a double chin, a view up their nostrils, or is very unflattering to their figures. Many are, quite frankly, amateurish.

The good:
We did get some good photos that we are happy with, but not many. I spoke with Scott on the phone after the wedding to talk about what my husband and I were displeased with and offered us a portrait session.

Conclusion:
We were not happy with the photos we received or our photographer, Rhonda. I would not recommend them to friends due to disputing a fair review. My advice for future couples using the studio, meet your photographer before your wedding to make sure your personalities are not at odds. Ask to see a complete album from the photographer
