Ryan took my wedding photos over a year ago. He did provide the CD with the photos but I am still waiting for the wedding book to be provided. I also signed up for his service at a Bridal show for a discount and paid up front. I want the book or I want to be refunded the cost of the wedding book.

I was very pleased with the photos and he was great to work with during the wedding planning and the day of the wedding. He gave a great price too. My only disappointment is that he never gave me my photo book which was part of the contract. I emailed him 3 times for the book. I also had a followup phone call for every email. The first call he seemed friendly. After I didn't get a response a few months after I emailed again and called. He seemed frazzled on the phone and said I was on a long waiting list. Finally I emailed again and called and without being upfront and telling me he wasn't going to make the book, he just said I was still on a waiting list and how he was on the fence with bankruptcy. That last call was made one year after my wedding and I've heard nothing since.

We originally booked Ryan at a "great discount" at a bridal show. Big mistake. Soon he was calling us telling us that at that price, we needed to pay in full at the time of booking his services, even though his representatives specifically told us the balance was not due until 2 weeks before the wedding. He said they made a mistake, and insisted we pay in full immediately. He was rude on the telephone, and continued to say what a busy time of year our wedding was. I was so unimpressed with him, that I could not imagine him being part of our wedding. We chose to cancel his services and forfeit the $400 deposit we had already paid. We were not happy to lose this money, but it was worth it not to have him part of our wedding. I would not recommend booking his services.

Everyone should beware of this photographer. I booked him at a bridal show THEN checked reviews after. Yes that was my mistake, I should've done research before. I assumed that because he was at the biggest, most reputable bridal show he was good to go. After reading the reviews my mom and I became sick to our stomachs about the investment we just made. A wedding is a once in a lifetime event that should be cherished and free of hassle. I received a call Monday morning from Ryan saying I didn't have the funds in my account for the check to process. I found this very interesting since I had PLENTY of money in my account. I then called my bank and verified there was enough money, but found this to be a blessing. I sent him a text, to make sure everything was documented, letting him know the funds were there, but we would not be continuing business with him due to the amount of horrible reviews. He kept calling me so I again sent him a text saying I would only communicate through text or email. He then became very unprofessional and told me he has ripped up my contract and check and I never have to talk to him again. Seriously? Aren't you supposed to be professional not childish? I am so thankful that I do not have to deal with this man ever again. ***DO NOT USE***

Some of the comments listed here are unfounded and malicious slander targeting my business. Alot of these dates are not compatible with my services rendered.

Ryan recently photographed my daughter's wedding and we could not have been more pleased. He was prompt and professional. We felt like we received a great package for the price. He took many, many photos and was quick to email them to us for review. He was fun and easy to work with. I would highly recommend Ryan Pearson to anyone.

TACKIEST PHOTOS! Been in business for awhile but he has done nothing to upgrade his skills, if you want photos and cheesy poses from the 1980's and 90's then this is your guy! Horrible experience all around, the brides family paid for the photos and so he treated the groom and his family like dirt. All the great reviews seem suspicious on here as they come right after a negative one... I think Ryan must be praising himself on those ones which by the way goes along with is arrogant attitude. Safe yourself the hassle and regret and higher one of the gazillion other better photographers that Utah has.

go with someone else and please save yourself the heartache. Worst choice of my wedding! The photos are okay and we was nice at first, but over all he seemed pretty short with us and rude, and made everyone feel kinda uncomfortable, and made things awkward. Like I said the pictures are okay but for what we went through i certainly don't love the pictures enough to ever go through that again, or recommend him to anyone. Please choose someone else.

His pictures looked much better than we had even anticipated, and his style of photography was exactly what we were looking for.

He is a con artist. His prices do appear low at first. That is why we signed up with him. We paid for all of our services in advance. It was $1000. It clearly, states in the contract that if I cancelled his services I would be charged $400 for cancelling. This is somewhat steep, but with that said I understand that I signed a contract saying I was responsible for a $400 deposit if I cancelled.
After paying the $1000 I looked more on his website and realized that his pictures were not good... He has the white trash 90's motif down to an art and I realized I did not want my wedding memories to look like that.

So, the day after giving him my Credit Card info, I called him and told him we were going to cancel his services. He seemed surprised but said it was fine and would not take the money out of our account. He said if the payment did go through he would reverse it immediately and ensures that everything worked out ok and I would not be charged a dime. I was happy with this, and even ended the phone call thinking he was a pretty good guy.
The next day he called my fiancée and told him that I would be charged the $400 reservation fee. I thought it was obnoxious that he had lied to me, but even then, I understood that I was responsible for the $400 per the contract and had no problem paying that.

The next week my credit card was charged for the full $1000.

My fiancée tried calling him on the day that it was charged with billing questions but Mr. Pearson did not respond to the messages. The money was never returned and he still had the full $1000.

Finally, a week later my mother (the holder of the card) was able to contact him. He said that he had no idea we had canceled and acted sad that we were no longer using him (a blatant lie considering both my fiancée and I had in depth conversations with him about how we were not using his services).
He told my mother he would keep the $400 and that he would be returning the other $600 back to the card immediately.
It has been over a month since he told my mother that. She has called him repeatedly and he will not answer or return her calls and the money has not yet been returned. My mother is contacting the credit card processing company now, in hopes that he will not be able to destroy anyone else’ wedding day! In short, he is a Con Artist. He will steal from you if he gets the chance, and beyond that, his photos are TACKY!

I was very happy with Ryan. we chose him because he had such good prices and because i really liked some of his photos. he was very flexible in working with us, we had to reschedule a few times because of weather and just being busy, but he was always very easy to work with. when i got my bridals done, it was at the capital building and he just decided to also take us to some random neighborhood by there too and i absolutely loved those pictures. i was so glad he did that because those were my favorite pictures. he listened to what sort of things i liked and didn't like and incorporated those into the pictures. he also got the pictures back to me in good time so that i could see them. and i liked how he did different lighting on the pictures so that i could choose which lighting i liked best. basically he was nice and easy to work with. i'm not sure why he has a few bad reviews on here, maybe he's bipolar or something but for my wedding, bridals, and engagements we were very impressed

I'm in no way a good judge of "what makes a good photographer" but my wife and mother-in-law (very OCD on what they wanted) were very pleased with his work. He understood that I (like most guys) didn't have pictures on the top of my list, and worked with me to get the pictures with me done first. He was very accomodating and open to feedback with out giving a vibe of being annoyed or put off. At our reception, when the group pictures were done, he seemed to dissapear, not literally, but he backed out of the action and stil got some amazing shots. He was also very easy to get a hold of and even rushed some of our proofs at no extra cost. As for what my wife said about being Bi- polar, she didn't mean that we thought he was, only that it is so weird that after such a positive interaction with him, he would be getting bad reviews.

I loved working with Ryan! I found him at a bridal fair and he had a great deal. He was really nice and I asked him if I could have a certain look to my photos. My mom and I were really specific and I was probably a handful for him... but he delivered everything I asked for. He came up with great ideas for the "look" I was going for. He had great locations and every picture turned out to be perfect! He made me and my husband feel really comfortable. He is very genuine and nice and has a real sense of what people want. I have had so many compliments on my wedding pictures. We are now married and I have a few of my photos on the wall and the frames that he offers are also gorgeous! All in all he was a great match for me and my husband. You can never "redo" your wedding photos, so going with someone who makes you look good and makes you feel comfortable is SO important, not to mention...if you don't want to spend a fortune Ryan Pearson Photography is a perfect photographer! LOVED him!

NOTE FROM THE GROOM: "My wife and mother in law are not the easiest to work with but he had no problem catering to specific needs and wants, and at the same time he didn't make the groom(me) feel like a second class citizen unlike some photographers out there."

Unfortunately, Ryan lacks professionalism in almost every regard. After dealing/ "not dealing" with him, I feel like he is a shady businessman with little regards to customer satisfaction. There was a few times when he did call back right away but it was always rushed. I felt like an inconvenience to him. His unanswered phone calls and emails can go for months. literally. He overbooks himself, overpays his customers and takes shoddy photographs. Most of our pictures are off-centered or from a bizarre angle, missing the temple spire or cutting people out of the picture. I thought he would be better at organizing large groups for a wedding day but most of the people still had there sunglasses on, the group was spread out and he even gave us pictures with most peoples eyes closed!?!? He should have just left those out. He also made fun of our videographer.

I'll be completely honest with you. I felt like a lot of the shots my uncle could have taken with a nice SLR. He is a nice guy but seems like he is out of date with his photos. I read a bunch of these reviews and I would NOT want to see what happened with out wedding photos happen to ANYONE else, even if I didn't know you. We paid so much money for what seemed like a good deal and over a year later we are still paying the price for our choice.

Sorry Ryan, I know you'll read this and be upset but what's funny is that this may be a time you'll actually listen. iit was always so difficult to get a hold of you. Sharing my opinions seemed to get shut down most of the time and the only thing we got was our c.d. of photographs. I hope you can be more honest and more professional in your years to come.

Ryan was a really fun, easy going photographer to work with. I am very picky and was a little worried about my pictures being the way I wanted since my mom loved the price and wanted to use Ryan. But I was very happy with all the pictures, My husband and I even emailed him some pictures that we liked just to give him an idea of what we liked and he accepted them professionally and worked really hard to do what we liked. Ryan is very nice, and ALWAYS stays calm throughout all the chaos. I love that you get all your pictures and he does such a great job editing them! I would recommend Ryan to anyone.. We LOVE all of our pictures :)

Here is the deal with Ryan. He is cheap, if you check his prices, you will see he is cheaper then most, this is the only reason why we went with him. But if I knew then what I know now about his service, I would have gotten another job to pay the difference to have a different photographer.

His pictures are OK... nothing too creative or artistic, and he doesnt do many close ups, but he doest the standard poses at the standard places at the SLC temple for example.

His sarcasm and attempt at humor is more awkward and borderline offensive to some rather than being anything close to funny. He shows a lack of patience during shooting, but like I said, his pictures are OK.

The worst part about Ryan is after he is paid and the wedding is done. It is near impossible to get a hold of him, ad once you do, he does not seem helpful in ordering prints, he will avoid it like the plague. Takes forever to get your CD of photos, and you have to hassle him to get anything done.

We paid extra for photobooks that he said might be done by Christmas (we were married in MAY) Once we called and found out that wouldnt happen, he said he would let us know when they would be done. It is now Mid- March, we have left over 5 messages, and have not heard from him. I tracked him down today and he told me that it wasnt his responsibility anymore and that he thought someone else might be working on them.

Needless to say I want to help anyone who might read this by saying DO NOT HIR RYAN PEARSON... spend a little more, get someone more professional, creative, and pleasant to work with.

Here is the deal with Ryan. He is cheap, if you check his prices, you will see he is cheaper then most, this is the only reason why we went with him. But if I knew then what I know now about his service, I would have gotten another job to pay the difference to have a different photographer.

Ryan Pearson is a amazing photographer, we had a wonderful. Experience with him. He treated my husband and I with respect. He even told jokes to get my husband to smile. We love our pictures. It took us about three weeks to get our wedding pictures back but this was in may so we understand and thought that was a good time. We would recommended him to anyone. Really a great photograper!!!!!

I don't want to sound like one of those whining, selfish brides, but I would not recommend this photographer at all. I was referred to this photographer by my good friend who warned me that although he was pretty difficult to work with, the quality of pictures they got for the price they paid was pretty good. She also advised me to only work with his wife, Carol, because she was really friendly and great. So I booked Ryan. I tried to contact him at times when I thought it would be his wife answering; I tried emailing only because my friend had said she was the one who answered the emails, but Ryan was always the one I talked to. The only time I ever exchanged a single word with her was when I booked them, which is unfortunate. I have met her (at my friend's wedding) and she was very nice. Ryan, however, was a disaster to work with. Getting a hold of him was a bit of a nightmare, but putting that aside, I felt the entire time we were working with him that I just wasn't important enough. The engagement session had to be postponed after we had already driven from Logan to Provo and were waiting for him to arrive. Admittedly, this was beyond his control and he did reimburse us for our gas money. But when I did my bridals, I looked forward to having Carol come because my friend had such a good experience with her there and was made to feel so special and pretty. She was not available to come during my bridals, and Ryan just acted impatient, disgruntled, and tense the entire time. I felt like he disapproved of any ideas I had and I was, again, made to feel unspecial. We got some decent pictures, however, so again I tried to overlook all these facts. On the wedding day, he was a bit more affable, and the pictures were nice - really they were - but I've also seen better. Of course, he wasn't that expensive so I suppose that's what I get. But getting everything ordered afterwards? A nightmare. He wouldn't tell me how much each enlargement was, and I couldn't find this information on his website, so finally I just ordered the pictures I wanted and hoped my print credit covered it. I ordered, and ended up having extra credit. It took me several months to use the rest, but when I finally did, he was completely unhelpful during the entire process. His emails were short, undetailed, and usually only answered one question out of a few I had asked in my email. And when he finally did send my order to the press, there was a miscommunication (although I believe I made myself very clear) about the quantity of one certain print, which made me go over and end up owing him money. Without checking with me first (even though I specifically told him I had ordered the perfect amount to use my credit and no more), he just sent the order to the press and told me I needed to send him a check for what I owed him before he would give me my pictures. When I pointed out that I hadn't ordered what he thought, he just said it was my mistake and that I still owed him. I'm honestly so frustrated with him. His skill as a photographer is a given, but his customer service is absolutely terrible. I'm not a pushy or overbearing person at all, and I feel that because I am not like that, I was just walked over and not taken care of. It is not usually in my nature to write poor reviews and whine, but I truly want to let people know to steer clear of this photographer. You can do much better.

If there is any advice I could offer a bride, it would be not to hire Ryan Pearson as your photographer. I hate to be so blunt, but I have never been through such an negative ordeal as my experience with his services.
He was recommended to me by an girl in my church, she said his pictures were good for the price. I met him at a bridal show, he was very nice and I was excited to hire him. Pictures were important to me. As soon as we had paid him for one of his top picture packages ($ all up front), his attitude started to change. He was difficult to schedule for engagement/bridals, I felt like I had to work around his busy schedule. I figured he was very popular and didn't mind.
On my wedding day he took pictures and didn't interact with us much - was very quiet. He seemed in a hurry. During the end of our reception he approached me to ask when we would be leaving so he could get pictures and go home. It didn't seem very professional or kind for him to rush me out of the church on my wedding day.
I will admit I waited a few months to order my pictures. I was in school, and I took the time to go through them multiple times to decide which ones I wanted. I emailed Ryan, and did not get a response. I emailed him a month later, and he confirmed he had received the order. A couple months later, my mom called him, he acted as if he had forgot about me and asked me to send the order again. I sent the order again, following with a voicemail left on his phone. My mom continued to call him. He was rude on the phone and in his emails so I was afraid to talk to him. By this point, it had been over a year since my wedding. Ryan then tried to claim that he didn't owe me my pictures or albums since it had been over a year. We forwarded him all the past emails - proving I ordered far earlier than a year. I was so upset - I was for sure that I had lost all my money and was going to get nothing from this guy. My dad finally sent him an email - saying that we would pursue legal action if he did not produce my albums. I had to change my original order since his albums available had "changed," but within the next month I had my pictures, a year and a half after my wedding.
With no apologies or compensation for the time he took to produce my pictures, I felt like a part of my wedding experience had been taken away. A year and a half after your wedding those albums lose some of their excitement and charm. Finding the right photographer is so important, and I only wish I had made a different choice. I hope that my review can save another bride from going through my experience.

Ryan and Carol were AMAZING! I LOVED working with them! I had to reschedule my bridals twice because of bad weather, and they made sure I got the pictures I wanted. My husband hates taking pictures, but after about an hour of engagements, his comment was "Are we done already? That was painless", and coming from him that means alot! My photographer was the first thing I booked, and they are worth every cent. The wedding didn't last very long, but Ryan captured the memories we will have forever! Ryan had lots of ideas for where and how to take pics and Carol does amazing edits on all the photos, so all of your pictures will look the best. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this fantastic couple and the awesome way they work! I absolutely love all my photos, engagements, bridals, temple, reception-they are personal, candid, and memorable!

I look back at my overall experience and feel so taken advantage. The day of my engagements he rushed us and seemed annoyed to be there. On the day of my bridals his wife was there and she was great, but I didn't like a lot of the tacky poses and I feel like his work was basic. Nothing to creative or artistic. He didn't show up on my wedding day, someone I never met before showed up. I actually am glad that she did because she was way more fun to work with. If I could go back in time I would do my research first. Also, he said I would get a FREE photo-book with the package I purchased. Well 4 years later and I don't have it. My mom and me gave up on that. I wish I would've chosen a different photographer.

We almost used this wedding photographer for our upcoming wedding but i am glad now that we didn't. My sister, however did, at her wedding last weekend. I have no problem with the quality of pictures he takes, at least the ones that i have seen. They actually are quite good for my taste. But you pay a certain amount of money and he is supposed to take pics for a certain amount of hours based on what you pay. Don't you think he should actually be taking pics for the full time that you paid for? No. My fiance and i saw him outside just talking to people and handing out his card and pretty much soliciting his service when he should have bern focused on documenting my sister's wedding. After seeing this and reading the other reviews on here i am just so relieved we did not make the mistake of hiring him

I would like to present a question for those good reviews on this website. Did you pay full price? Or did you pay the "discount price" he gives at Bridal Show he attends? Well needless to say, my wife found him at a bridal show and gave her the half price deal with a large credit to go toward prints when the wedding was over. First, I believe his photos are not horrible by any means, they are decent quality, however, the professionalism, responsiveness, and all around lack of communication makes me wonder if he gives more attention to those who pay the full price of his Wedding packages? A side note, he pays very little attention to detail. I.E. Pictures with brides hair in her face, group photos with eyes closed, people not paying attention, etc. Never once did I hear him tell the group to change something to make it better such as, "Hey you could you please not touch that persons shoulder?" I believe there were at least five conversations we had with Ryan regarding SPECIFIC details on how we wanted to handle the process for our prints, but nothing was done in the order or way we agreed upon. My wife would email him no response. She would email him a second time a week later. Nothing in our inbox or spam. Finally, I had to call him. Reaching him on his phone isn't bad. For those not getting any response via email, he usually picks up the phone. The thing that was most frusturating about the service and communication is he would never follow through what you agree. We wanted him to photo shop our prints and send them to us via email to approve before sending them to print. Nope, he sat on our order and three weeks later sent the order to print without even communicating with us. He is always overwhelmed by how booked he is and believe me, he will mention that to you if you go see him. All in all, I would not suggest this photographer for anyone planning their wedding day spent a little more and get the customer service satisfaction.

I would like to present a question for those good reviewers on here. Did you pay full price for Ryan's Packages? I wonder if he pays more attention to those that do? We were one of those who got the discount price at a bridal show. He never would respond to our emails. Never paid much attention to the details on our photos. We would get back photos with hair in my wifes face, group photos with eyes closed, people not paying attention. His photo's are not bad it was the lack of interest, communication, and time to put into making them worth while that made our experience frustrating. Yes, he does over book himself. In fact, he will tell you that if you go see him. Plans we would make with him regarding our final prints, photos, etc, were never followed up on or followed through. He would just do things without approval or communicating. We were to have our final prints emailed to us after photo shop and fixing any blemish was complete to approve the next step, printing. Did he do that? Nope. He sat on our order for three weeks and just sent it in. Spend your money somewhere else for the customer service satisfaction any bride deserves. By the way, does the quality of service a vendor gives have anything to do with the wedding date specifically? I didn't think so. This is a review site and this is simply what these comments depict; Our honest review of service by this vendor.

I booked this photographer at one of the bridal shows and thought since it was such a big bridal show and he said he had been around for 25 years that we were in good shape-wrong!!! We purchased a package at a huge discount since it was at the bridal show, and he let us know that every time we worked with him. Every time I had trouble getting in touch with him or wanted to communicate with him regarding my photos he made sure to tell me how busy he was and I was getting what I paid for since I'd gotten such a big discount. He was extremely hard to get in touch with, I would always have to email him multiple times and call over a week or two in order to get any response. When I placed orders with him for my bridal photos he acted put out like I was bothering him or that it was a pain to have to order so many. When we got our wedding photos back I was surprised to find that all the pictures he'd taken of us during the ceremony were from behind. We'd asked for a second photographer for that day and thank god she captured 3-4 shots of my dad walking me down the aisle. So if we had not hired a 2nd photographer for that day all of the pictures of my dad walking me down the aisle would have been from behind. Disappointing, that a wedding photographer that's been in business for 25 years would not understand how important it is to capture those shots. When I got the proof back for the wedding album I ordered I tried to ask him about different templates and color schemes for the background and he said sorry I only have that template - really a professional photographer and you only offer 1 background for your photo albums?! Overall the pictures turned out okay but it was not worth dealing with someone who was so rude to us and unprofessional. Oh and after he saw my review he tried to threaten us saying he would not give us our wedding album, that's already paid for, and would and hire an attorney to take us to court if we didn't take the review down. Ridiculous!

Oh and after he saw my review he tried to threaten us saying he would not give us our wedding album, that's already paid for, and would and hire an attorney to take us to court if we didn't take the review down. Ridiculous! Read less

Ryan took my wedding photos over a year ago. He did provide the CD with the photos but I am still waiting for the wedding book to be provided. I also signed up for his service at a Bridal show for a discount and paid up front. I want the book or I want to be refunded the cost of the wedding book. I really didnt like my wedding pictures because he had us stand in front of wedding and there was to much of the reflection on the picture. He states that he was been in business for 25 years but the quality of the editing it was horrible.

He was late to our reception. He was angry that some of the guests had nicer cameras than he did. He told us we should have waited for him to start the reception because he was late because he had scheduled another photo shoot. Very hard to work with after the wedding. The bridals and engagement pictures look very nice, but his attitude and customer service left a bad feeling about his service.

DO NOT USE THIS VENDOR! Pictures were great and offered great ideas of places to do pictures. However, apparently has recently gone out of business and has not returned any of my calls or emails to get the rest of the photography package that has BEEN PAID FOR. I am still frustrated of even how to contact this person, luckily I do have the rights to the photos.

My parents met Ryan at the bridal show, bought a package for a great deal, and we really enjoyed working with him!! Our wedding day pictures turned out beautiful. He also took our engagement pictures. Being engaged in the winter in Utah, the weather was horrible every day we scheduled. He would get right on the phone and help me reschedule. We finally got it right with the weather and had an awesome engagement picture session! On the wedding day, he took pictures that mattered - plenty of my husband and me together, but just as important, he made sure every family member was involved seeing as they are a big part of the day, too. Our pictures look nice and are truly memorable. Thank you, Ryan!!

We ahd to change our date, because we had to ahve this photographer. He was amazing. He gave us a deal when we switched our date. He traveled to different cities for the pictures. The quality was phenomenal! He was by far the best in the city, and we would recommend him to anyone. Pricy, but worth the investment.

This photo shop was next to my aunt's hair salon, and we were able to strike a deal with them for our pictures (both wedding day and engagement pictures) because of favors they had done for each other in the past. I was a little worried at first that this would make me less important to the photographer since I didn't represent as large a paycheck to him. He was, however, attentive, respectful, and very patient with me, as well as helpful suggesting shooting sites. I was very pleased with his work, and would reccommend him to anyone!
