This photographer cancelled on my 3 days before my wedding, despite having a contract and having paid a deposit months in advance. He sent his assistant as a replacement - who did not do an adequate job. It was horrible to be 3-days out from my wedding and have my photographer cancel. He didn't even call me - he emailed me. And I couldn't argue or complain because I was stuck having to be 'nice' so that they didn't screw up my wedding photos. He was unprofessional, and his behavior was unacceptable. I was crying when I learned that he was going to be a 'no-show'. I wouldn't wish that on any bride a couple days before her wedding.

We were referred to Erik by my girlfriend who just got married. The pictures are so perfect and we really liked how classic they looked. We know that on our 50th wedding anniversary the pictures are going to be our biggest memory and we loved the style of Erik's work so much. Just a really nice guy and easy to work. We would definitely recommend him!

I am extremely dissappointed with Erik Merkow. It has been almost 1 year since my wedding and I still have not recieved my wedding photos. Everytime I try to contact Erik it either takes him forever to get back or he doesn't get back to you at all. I would not even suggest Erik Merkow to my own worst enemy. ERIK MERKOW LACKS THE PROFESSIONALISM TO RUN A PHOTOGRAPHY BUISINESS.

We have since resolved all of the issue. I was not aware the images were not received. Once I found out I immediately delivered the images and resolved all of the issues

Our wedding photographs are amazing! Not only are we pleased, but so are our friends and family. We have received endless compliments.

We do not live in Arizona, so we were very pleased to find that Erik was so accommodating, easy to contact and very willing to work with us. He made our pictures fun and allowed us to feel natural while taking them. We couldn't be happier with the results. Thanks again Erik!

Sincerely,

Mr. and Mrs. Todd Ritchie

Erik Merkow was one of the best vendors I used for my wedding. From a creative standpoint, his work is breathtaking and he really captures the emotions of the whole day. He captured shots that brought back memories of my wedding as if I was experiencing the day all over again. From a professional standpoint he was very thorough and reliable. I trusted my wedding completely with him. I highly recommend him to every bride I meet!

Erik is probably the most easy going person I have ever met. He has a great eye and is able to capture moments that mean the most. He is so fun to work with, we actually enjoyed taking pictures with him both at our engagement shoot and before the reception. He helped us savor the moment with a set of beautiful pictures that our family and friends can't stop talking about almost three months later. I read the review the person wrote in July-unfortunately he is a busy person. I learned that with all my vendors, they aren't just sitting around waiting for your wedding. We did have to call him, just the same as we had to call most of our other vendors however, he had it completely under control. Never once did I feel like "just a customer". I felt like a special project and I trusted him completely with my wedding. In fact, once he showed up at the ceremony I knew it was going to be smooth sailing. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for more than a "photographer" because Erik does not just take pictures, he captures emotions and it takes a lot of talent to be able to do that.

We hired Erik to photograph our wedding in Scottsdale. He took some amazing pictures of my ailing mother that I will cherish for a lifetime. (I would actually recommend asking him for more of these individual/candid shots of special people- I think it's an area of expertise for him.) Erik was very low key which worked well for the makeup of my family. Also, I called him on a Saturday recently (two months since the wedding) and he was very responsive and helpful with some questions I had. Very helpful!
