We got the name of Red Shoe Bride from a friend of ours who used them, and we couldn't be happier!! Ilysa was super accommodating and willing to travel a bit of a distance to take our engagement pictures (the location was special to us), and made us feel comfortable and relaxed in what could have been an incredibly awkward situation. When planning for the wedding, Kendra, the office manager, helped coordinate our schedules so we could meet in a place that was convenient for me during a lunch break. They were extremely organized by having me write out a list of pictures that we were sure we wanted to get on the day of, and on the day of the wedding, they made sure that they got everything! They brought a calming and yet fun energy to the wedding day (especially the time getting ready before the ceremony), and helped make sure that everything ran smoothly and on time. The team of Ilysa, Eric and Kevin were great, and we cannot wait to see our pictures!!

The worst! I see that some of the other negative reviews are very similar to ours. Basically, Red Shoe Bride took our payment then fell off the face of the earth for months after our wedding! Something very sketchy was going on. They would not respond to texts, emails, calls, even Facebook messages. We got to the point that we thought it was a front for a scam. Finally, they sent us the link with pictures. No apology, no explanation, nothing. The pictures are horrible! Not flattering at all. And not what I wanted. I filled out a form of people and moments I wanted photographed... what a waste of time because none of that mattered. Still have not received our wedding video, photo albums or DVDs 10 months later! The positive reviews on here must be fake because dealing with Red Shoe Bride was an absolute nightmare. Thank god all other vendors for our wedding were good.

ALSO, PHOTOS ON RED SHOE BRIDE'S WEBSITE ARE NOT THEIR WORK!!! I saw a friend and his wife in their online gallery and contacted him to see if he had the same issue when working with Red Shoe Bride. He says "I've never heard of Red Shoe Bride. We used someone else."

HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!!!! STAY FAR AWAY!

I was married in August 2015 and this photographer still owes me my video, album and many of my photos. She was hard to reach once I signed a contract with her and that made her the most stressful vendor I used, adding stress to wedding planning. She came to my wedding with a broken printer for my photo booth and spent the day trying to fix it rather than taking pictures as I paid her to do. She has now blocked my cell and work numbers so I cannot call her and does not respond to my emails. Do not use this vendor, she steals your money without providing services listed in a signed contract.

Let me preface this review with the fact that Red Shoe really does take great photos. What really has me upset is the fact that it's been a year since my wedding (4-11-15) and I have yet to receive my wedding video and highight reel DVDs. I found Red Shoe Bride through reading reviews on The Knot - they received very positive feedback - in hindsight I almost wonder if they wrote their own reviews. What aggravates me the most is that they ask for all fees to be paid upfront - which really makes it hard for me now that I am still waiting for my materials. The day of the wedding I found Ilysa to not be the easiest to work with - especially when it came to us taking table pictures with the guests - she refused to do the pictures and said we wouldn't have enough time. Luckily we ended up getting half of the tables at least. I also found out that my mother in law had been chasing her most of the night to take one family photo - that too was a struggle. After the wedding, it took approximately 4-5 months to receive the links to my photos - I received the link to the video at around 6 months post wedding but the DVDs have yet to be mailed to me. When contacting Red Shoe, I no longer receive a response. It's frustrating to be dealing with this so many months post wedding - but I am simply asking for the items that were clearly written into our contract. Again, I will reiterate that the photos did come out beautiful and I am very appreciative of that - but I am angry at how this vendor is treating me now that my wedding is over and they already have all my money. I would highly recommend that if you do choose to go with this vendor - avoid paying for everything upfront - give them half when booking and then the rest on receipt of all your materials. Otherwise you'll be in the same position as me - chasing after them with no response. I would also recommend that you try to meet or have a call with them before your big day to go over the important pictures.

I couldnt be happier with my photographer, Jim from Red Shoe Bride! His attention to detail and creative ideas were so great! I was afraid I was going to need to find pictures i wanted to have but, as soon as he got there he directed us and took our ideas and just managed to get the greatest pictures!! Ilysa is the person who I worked with back and forth and she was so great and accommodating, I cant thank her enough!! We got such a great deal/ value which included our engagement shoot with our package! Thank you to Red Shoe Bride, everything was perfect!!!

Photography was incredibly important to us, because it is the only thing you really get to have forever from the wedding. I am one of those people who love having pictures but hate my photo being taken, so I was incredibly picky. When we first met Ilysa, we were instantly comfortable with her. She felt more like a friend than a vendor, and I felt like that is very important when it is the person who is going to be with you all day. She was incredibly patient with me (even after dozens of emails all with different questions), and was very willing to work within our budget. She was so awesome the day of, I’m pretty sure the poor thing didn’t even get a chance to eat (friends and family kept requesting group shots during dinner).We received a USB of the full sized and facebook sized pictures about 10 weeks after the wedding, and they were INCREDIBLE. I feel like I could relive every moment of the day, (even my husband and his friends getting ready- which I wasn’t even there for)! She even caught tiny things that I didn’t even notice. She has such a great eye for detail, lighting, and posing. My (very critical) sister was shocked at how natural even the posed shots looked. I feel like my wedding through her photos looked better than it did it real life. I also love how she doesn’t over photoshop the pictures. So many photographers overdo the vibrancy which creates neon- green grass and looks so unnatural. We look like us and not like a blurred painting. I would HIGHLY recommend Red Shoe Bride and especially Ilysa.

There is not enough space on this page to fully express how happy we were with our experience with Red Shoe Bride. Red Shoe Bride was the second photographer we contacted and we did not look any further. From our first meeting, we knew we were in capable hands. Ilysa was responsive, prompt, and honest - not to mention fun to be around! We had a great time taking our engagement pictures. We felt like we were the only wedding they were working on, but knew that we weren't as two of our friends booked them after seeing our engagement shots! The day of our wedding went smoothly thanks to their organization and experience. We received several compliments from guests before they even saw our pictures of how great the photo/video teams worked together, always capturing the moment but not in the way. We were thrilled to receive our wedding photos! They truly capture the happiness and excitement of our wedding day. Hiring Red Shoe Bride was the best decision we made for our wedding, hands down, except the decision to marry each other!
