I was slightly disappointed with the photos we received from Matthew James Photographer. We asked for many candid photos to be taken of the reception, and he delivered on this very well, his photos of our young family members are adorable. Day of I felt like he didn't listen to or get a feel for us very well, we were obviously and verbally uncomfortable with some of the poses he asked us to do, and ended up with only 2 photos where we are even looking at the camera. His partner Dannie is really nice. There are very few 'standard' wedding photos of family members and the bridal party, which initially was fine with me, but the ones that we have are not very impressive, and frankly the standard photos are the ones you hang on to anyway! Post wedding I notified him of our new address to send the photo disc to, he sent it to the wrong one anyway, with the same misspelling of our name that occurred on the proofs- of which I had informed him of.

Matthew James Photographers responded with the following comments:

We are not, and have never claimed to be traditional or "standard" photographers. Our work is unique and different, and that is what our clients like about us! We explained this aspect of our photography to this client, as we do with all our clients. We provided myriad examples of our work, both online and in person. When you book photographers like us, remember that you are hiring an artist, not a standardized service. It is important to make sure, before you book, that the work we show you reflects what you want to see in your wedding pictures!

The poses that we direct our clients to do are designed to produce the kind of imagery that you can expect from us. If you like what you see on our website, you should be prepared to trust our creative process. We don't take prom pictures...don't expect to pose that way! This client seemed to display an unwillingness to be photographed at all, and while we try our best to make each person feel relaxed and comfortable, we still need to take your picture. That's what we're there for!

To address the issue of the typo and the incorrect shipping address...we're only human! We care about each one of our clients, and if we misspell something slightly (we missed an "e"!) it doesn't mean we don't respect you or value your business, it just means we made a mistake. We apologized of course, and corrected the error immediately. If we ever make a mistake like this, we will always make it right!

In spite of all this, we love the way the pictures from this wedding turned out! The location (Chardonnay Golf Club) was beautiful, and many of the photographs were phenomenal. We are proud to include them in our portfolio!

Our wedding pictures turned out so beautiful! We met him for the first time before the wedding and he was very friendly and nice. I love all of my photos and enjoyed receiving the CD in the mail shortly after the wedding. If you want a friendly photographer that works great with kids and makes you feel at ease then hire this guy!
