I would not recommend Saks for handling any major service that you may be interested in. My wife and I just completed our wedding, and as part of the package we were to include a "Signature Portrait for our reception"as stated in their brochure under the "Designer Wedding Coverage". When the photographer showed up, he didn't have it in his possession and then made NO EXTRA EFFORT to resolve this. I wasn't made aware of this not being there until about 1 hour before our ceremony. Thankfully the owner of the venue went out of her way to purchase a journal so that our guest would have something to sign.

My wife called them on Tuesday and spoke with an employee there. The argument used for the oversight was that because we didn't show up for the engagement session that we didn't want the signature portrait. I sure am glad that they didn't make the same assumptions with showing up to take pictures at our wedding, because they absolutelycould have with the logic that they used.

I just got off the phone with the location, and I asked to speak to the owner of the company about this complaint. I was told that the owner wasn't in and that he would effectively get to me when he got to me sometime next week. The conversations was handled as if it was to be expected and nothing was out of the ordinary. Why would anyone want to engage in a relationship with this company that doesn't value the opinion of their customers and treat mild transgressions as egregious offenses. Sak's doesn't care to live up to the contract that They Wrote and They Signed. They know what comes in these packages and I guess they pick and choose what to deliver on. My wife went to a bridal show and got sucked in to the sales pitch. A better sales pitch than delivery on goods and services promised.

Saks Photography and Video responded with the following comments:

We would like to respond first by stating the package this client chose is our "Signature 8X10 Wedding Coverage" and not our "Designer Wedding Coverage" as the client stated in their review. In reference to the FREE signature mat - the client never scheduled their engagement session. On July 29, 2014, Amanda (the bride) called the studio to ask about the included engagement session, bridal session, and signature mat in her wedding package. We explained to Amanda the days and times engagement sessions can be taken in the studio and advised her she needed to schedule the engagement session ASAP if she wanted it in time for her wedding. We also offered the option to have the signature mat included after the wedding with a wedding image included. Amanda discussed trading in the engagement and bridal sessions for a third parent album at no additional cost. We explained to Amanda the trade value would not be equal for an additional third parent album. Amanda told us on that July day she would get back to us with her and Jeremy's decision. We are still waiting on their decision on this matter. Amanda called the studio this Tuesday to discuss the signature mat and was told that she could still have the mat with a wedding image included. We at Saks include all which is purchased and included in every package. We will still include the signature mat for Jeremy and Amanda as soon as their images are processed since their wedding was only five days ago.

Saks Photography did a fabulous job for my daughters wedding. From the moment they showed up for the "before the wedding" photos to the end of the night they captured the wonderful night that was had by all. Very courteous and took all the special photos that we requested and did it graciously. We highly recommend their service.

I would not recommend Saks from our experience at our wedding. I see everyone raving about Tara on the reviews, I wish we would have gotten her because our photographer missed several good photo opportunities, resulting in probably the worst wedding photos I've seen. We had a male photographer and videographer.

The photos themselves are basic - no creativity. Honestly some just in poor taste, like 2 of just my cleavage (no I'm not kidding). My guests who I did show the photos to also made reference to these odd photos, so it wasn't just us who noticed it.

After the ceremony, the photographer seemed to just take photos with anyone who stood next to me vs. taking charge and organizing the families ensuring everyone was in there. I had enough to worry about on the day of the wedding, I was relying on the photographer to be organized and make sure he got every possible shot with family.

I don't have a photo of myself, my mother, and grandmother all in one photo, just separates --what good is this? I don't have a photo of my grandparents on my father's side along with his siblings all in one photo -- again a missed opportunity. There's a photo of the fountain in front of Samuel's Grande Manor, just the fountain -- we didn't even know he got that until we got the cd back. You'd think the photographer would've asked me and the groom to get in front of that fountain -- it's a beautiful photo opportunity. My point is, he missed a lot of opportunities and we are really disappointed because you can't go back and take new ones. We're stuck with what we got.

It's also been 2 months since my wedding and no video -- not even a phone call with an update. I emailed Saks regarding my disappointment in the photos and surprise - no response. It's just unfortunate that we spent all this money for mediocre photos.

I loved everything! I had two photographers and they captured so many elements of my wedding that I loved! I had candids and traditional photographs and loved that I got my cd of images. They took over 1,000 images and it was super hard to narrow down becuase I loved them all - I highly recommend them!

Saks Photography did a wonderful job from start to finish. They have very good hours of business, so you will never have to worry about not being able to fit a time in your schedule to go to the studio. Being the bride and planning your own wedding leaves you anxious and nervous at times, and Saks was always ready and willing to answer my photography questions, so I never felt bad calling them. Tara was our photographer and she did an incredible job! I truly cannot even thank her enough. On the day of my wedding she was right on time and ready to start capturing all of the special moments. Everyone loved her, I got so many compliments from friends and family. Many said that they didn't even know she was there, during the ceremony, taking all the pictures because she's so good at what she does. And brides to be that is very important!!! My husband and I just got our wedding album back and I literally have looked at it everyday, twice or more a day, because it is just that beautiful. Thank you Tara and Saks for everything. We couldn't be happier!

Ron was our wedding photographer and we couldn't have been happier with the hole process. He also did out engagement photos which came out beautiful. On the day of our wedding he was so helpful. We had planned on having our photos outside but it poured so we had no clue where to go. He gave us several suggestions and our wedding photos were fabulous.

I love love love saks. My wedding photos came out absolutely amazing. Over 25 years ago they did my parents wedding and it seemed fitting for them to do mine as well. This is a family run business that made me feel like family on my wedding day. All day I barely knew they were there, but somehow, every amazing moment was captured. I was in tears when I saw all the great photos they took. They are honestly top notch, great quality photos, and everyone that works there is so nice. If you want flawless photography on your big day, it would be a mistake not to go with SAKS. You get what you pay for. Cant wait to see my video!! Thanks again saks!

We had a great experience with Saks for our wedding. We worked with 3 people mainly - Diane, Mr. Saks, and Tara. Diane in the office was very helpful with explaining what our package included, and keeping all the order details straight. Mr Saks did our engagement photo session, which only took about a half hour, and the photos came out great. Tara was our wedding photographer. She arrived just a few minutes early and started taking pictures of all the details (the ring, the shoes, etc.). During our formal session she got our group of 14 to coordinate some nice poses, and we had time to visit 3 different locations. During the ceremony, she was completely unobtrusive, I didn't even notice her there. She somehow managed to get some great angles while not being a distraction. When all was said and done we came away with almost 900 pictures to review and choose from.
I would recommend Saks, we had a positive experience all around.

We had Tara and Brooke as our photographers for our wedding day. With it being a Friday wedding things were a little more rushed than a normal Saturday wedding and these two ladies handled everything well along with the timing. We had TONS of pictures to look at from our wedding; over 1,000 and couldn't be happier with them. We just received our photo album yesterday and I made my husband wait for me to look at it and since he couldnt check it out in front of Tara she wanted me to call her back today to make sure that we absolutely loved it. We will cherish it forever and are both very glad with our decision to go to Saks for photography. Everyone goes out of their way to make your wedding planning a whole lot easier.
