When looking for a wedding photographer my wife and I were overwhelmed with the infinite choices of photographers out there, after meeting Ron and Debbie and comparing their prices to others it was a no brainer on choosing them to photograph our wedding. With the help of their other photographer Rafael they were able to capture all of the amazing moments on our special day. On top of taking excellent photographs they were so much fun to work with (especially Rafael) and what was most impressive was their ability to get the best pictures, and so many of them, without it feeling like you had paparazzi following you around! I could not recommend anyone better than them for capturing such a special day, it is obvious that they care about the people they work with and love what they do. Thank you Ronald Ponkey Photography, you made the memories of our special day last forever!

This husband and wife pair are so great... My daughter and I met with them at their home office to sign our contract and see their work. Their work is beautiful and they have so many original ideas. They had us laughing the whole time. We shopped for months for a photographer that was not outrageous and finally found Ronald Ponkey Photography, LLC. They offered SO much more than any of the other photographers at a fraction of the cost and spend your WHOLE day with you taking pictures, not just 6 to 8 hours the others do. They also offer a second photographer (for a fee), which works out great for the morning of the wedding, so one can be with the bride and the other with the groom as they get ready for their special day AND Debbie, Ron's wife is there to make sure everything looks perfect in the pictures. Looking forward to the big day and them capturing it all!

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.

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!!!!!
