The engagement pictures came out great and we were looking forward to the wedding pictures to be taken. Several times throughout the day Ronald and his wife Debbie would occasionally show us some of the pictures they have taken and we were blown away on how good they looked even before the editors and others were to get the pictures. My wife and I are eagerly awaiting the proofs and cannot imagine the stunning quality we are going to get. They have a mastery of the job that rivals no one other. Extremely easy to work with and they want to take as many pictures as possible to create the best album imaginable.

I went to the novi bridal show with my mom. We looked at every photographer and he was the only photographers pictures I fell in love with. From the day I called to book a meeting until the day of my wedding everything went smoothly. The day of my wedding Ron and his wife were amazing, they captured every photo and expression I wanted. We just got our online pictures and I can't wait for the actual photo prints and my photo album. I don't have any complaints on anything from there service.

I chose to go with this photographer because the prices were good. What I didn't know was that unless you are photogenic it cost extra to have your photos edited. Half my shots made me look fat, I know I'm not the skinniest of people but there are things that can be done so you do not have a chunk of fat hanging on the side of your photo. But as mentioned that cost extra.

I could possibly deal with that, however the photographer's assistant is his wife, she seems all nice when you meet her for selection and payments. However, when she called my matron of honor a "thing" and yelled at her because she has cerebral palsy and could not stand in line or move on her own, it is very unprofessional. Additionally, my father-in-law had to talk to the photographer to get her to quit yelling at my guests.

If you do decide to hire them you are expected to include them in your seating arrangements or they will leave for an hour. On top of that during the dancing they were CONSTANTLY sitting down talking to each other. Give them a list of photos to take otherwise you wont get them. I had a personalized cake with four different sides, my photographer only took photos of two of the sides.

My photo book turned out alright. But my overall experience made me cry. I felt like they were more concerned with how they wanted things done than how I would want them done. They were rude, unhelpful, and I would not suggest calling them. I wish I would have spent more money on a photographer that knew what they were doing and could be professional about it.

THEY WERE AWESOME!!!! GREAT COUPLE and they LOVE what they do! Our only complaint was that we wish the bride had more/ different backgrounds for her pictures, they were all the same; where as the groom had many different backgrounds.

Ron was professional and caring. He made sure that we had all of the pictures that we wanted. He was never in the way or an annoyance while he taking pictures during the ceremony or at the reception.

It's a husband/wife team. The wife doesn't know how to use the camera. All of my pictures (with the exception of one ) by him turned out bad so I ended up using pictures my friends and took. I was really impressed when i saw his portfolio but he's not good at taking pictures he just has a good photo editor. They fought during the wedding and made things really awkward. After meeting me twice, they asked my maid of honor if she was the bride on my wedding day (she's Asian and I'm blonde). When i called them from my limo to meet at another location for pictures he didn't know who i was when i told him my name. The wife is extremely rude and they interrupted important moments in my wedding... Like stopping during the first dance, stopping during our exit and faking the bouquet and garter toss. Sometimes a better time is more important than one or two pictures. My guests seemed to really like Ron. He was really rude when I went to pick up my cd from him and lied to me on the phone when they weren't ready in time. If you're looking for a good price then you got one. If you do decide to go with him make sure you know what poses and locations you want to do and don't let him change you're mind. He takes a really long time to take one picture and can not take in the moment pictures. I have a billion pictures with my eyes closed and looking a different way. At the end of the day me and my bridal party still have something to laugh at... My crazy photographers....

Ronald Ponkey Photography, LLC responded with the following comments:

We have been in business for over 27 years and are members of the Professional Photographers of America. I will not respond to such ridiculous allegations regarding our photography services

I never received any complaints from this bridal couple at any time during the wedding, after the wedding or after their package was completed and delivered.

My only response is for people to view my website and visit my studio and let them decide for themselves the caliber of our professionalism.

I have learned through the years of professional excellence is when a bridal couple fails to cooperate on the wedding day and does not put importance on their wedding pictures their only option is to bad mouth the studio.

We hired Ronald Ponkey Photography for our wedding in July and they were AWESOME!!!! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer. The variety of pictures and the quality were more than I could ask for. Another thing that I personally enjoyed about Ron and his wife was how much fun they were too! They made our day special, but also seemed like they enjoyed themselves! I also LOVED the fact that they stay unlimited hours!! I couldn't find any other photographers that offered this option plus all the additional things we got with our package. Check out Ronald Photography LLC on Facebook and book with them - you will not be disappointed!!!!!
