Michael took great pics, my photo proofs were available online withing 2 wks, there are a hundred couples who have their albums avail for online viewing but ours however is "difficult" This man has more stories and excuses as to why I still do not have what I paid very good money for, he is not cheap that's for sure. I had my video within a couple months after my wedding and that was very well done, don't get me wrong, I love my photos but I would very much like to have them along with my album. A couple of friends who are getting married asked if I would recommend him, and the answer is "if you're ok with waiting 7+ months for your pics, then yes" otherwise a big fat NO!! I had to pay him in full prior to my wedding, so why would he rush for me??!!! I am sorry I didn't use a different vendor.

Where do I start; had to do 2 e-photo shoots bc first go around was with second photog, who was 1 hr late, rushed us, shadows, insulted my husband and forgot her step stool. Luckily Michael redid the e-photo shoot and the thank you card came out nice, although took him 4 months and 2 tried to get us the right amount. Day of wedding showed up without a second photog (which we paid for them to eat and also in our contract), his wife showed up as our videographer when we saw his sons videos at initial meeting, did not take any photos of cocktail hr, poor photos of couples walking down aisle, none of my harpist. Poor video quality and bad editing. Constant excuses about getting our albums - he was sick, his dad was sick, he sent the photos/albums to another company (he told us originally he did all the processing/editing himself), etc. 10 months later we finally get our items - the 2 wall photos were wrong, the parents albums were cheap and not what he showed us, luckily our album came out nice. Don't get me started on the video. The CD with our photos was blank, still waiting on that! I expressed my concern and unhappiness with them and they took a small amount off our final payment but that doesn't make up for the stress I went through or the poor quality items we received. The online proofs are difficult to see. The pictures just look outdated and amateur. I have since told my venue to stop recommending him based on my experience. It seems form previous posters that his work/business has gone downhill over the past year or so.

Horrible this vendor is a thief who cared about just getting a pay check. Leading up to the wedding we would be in contact every other week after he vanished. Its been over a year and a half and I have spoken to them 3 times ever time they stall. Micheal had the audacity to blame the recent hurricane in our area for the reason why we haven't received our pictures. When we got married over a year and half before it. If anyone else is out there i plan on filing a lawsuit against him. We payed a lot of money for his services I hope no one else falls in his scheme.

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!! DO NOT USE!!! Michael and Kathy are the biggest scam artist!!!! Both myself and my boss used them and had the exact horrendous experience. They rob you of your money and do not fulfill any of their obligations except for showing up at the wedding with a camera. I could have had my 15 year old cousin take better quality pictures. Not only terrible quality but they were given a very extensive list of photos to take and somehow managed to take all the ones we wanted. They even took family pictures and neglected to add the groom! Any of these people on here that wrote good reviews for them I would love to see their pictures, albums, thank you cards etc. I have a really strong feeling based on my experience that those people actually do not exist and is probably those scam artists writing them. There is absolutely no way they could have done one thing well when they have been completely horrible for us. They have been unprofessional and unresponsive the moment the wedding was over. Not once have they initiated contact with us. It has been over a year and a half since my wedding and every time I schedule am appointment to work on my album they come up with another excuse when they cancel the appointment the day of last minute. Now it has gotten to a point where they won't even return my call, I am contacting my attorney, and the potentially the media. My only hope at this point is I can help one other couple my spreading the word to not use them and be thoroughly disappointed and robbed.

Message For Everyone searching for their photographs and video from Michael!!!!!!

I was able to get in touch with a woman named Laurie (Can't recall the last name) who has been brought in by a third party to sort out all the past due albums and videos. She has been given Michael's business cell phone (973-202-0542) if you need to get in touch with her and she was able to get my albums sent out to me. She told me to put the word out that she will assist in getting people their product. Feel free to give me a call beforehand at 917-656-6772 if you need more information.

ATTENTION ALL CUSTOMERS,

If you have been ripped off like my wife & I were, I suggest you go to LITTLE FALLS POLICE DEPT. on Monday April 29, 2013 and file a police report. He was arrested last week for ripping people off and he is due in court to face criminal charges on April 30. The more that come foward, the better chance we all have of receiving our photos of a day none of us can get back.

I have been trying to contact this photographer in hopes of receiving my albums, video and other products that we have paid in full for. Unfortunately this does not seem that it will happen. Has anyone filed with the court system? What court house did you go through town or county? Any help would be appreciated since we are deployed in Japan and can't goto the court house for assistance. Please email me at Jbweddingsc@gmail.com if you have had any success. Thank you!
