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!

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!

Our photographer Tara was amazing and fun to work with. My 18 month old niece just loved her and Tara was great getting her to smile and look up when she needed it. Tara was very patient and pleasant- always had a smile on her face. and was understanding when a pushy aunt thought that she ruled the show. We have 975 pictures to review of our day, and it's not like we had the camera shoved in our face the entire night.

I wasn't excatly the easiest bride to get in touch with, but Saks never let that get in the way of service. My husband and I are so happy with the wedding photo's and the package with everything it entails. The photographer was very clever in taking pictures that showed the actual tone of the wedding and party. He suggested certain poses and scenes that made for excellent pictures that I would have never thought of! I have already recommended this place to others!

Saks also did my invitations and they were so classy and unique. I also received a 25% discount for the invites since I booked my photography thru them. They had many selections for us to choose from and the choice was difficult. After explaining to Diane what I was looking for, she found just the right invitation and it was perfect. They were so beautiful, words just does not do them justice!

I recently was married Sept 10, 2011 and had our photos taken through Saks. We had both Ron and Tara as our photographers and I don't even know where to begin, they were that AMAZING!!!! By far the most professional individuals (and staff) I have ever dealt with. Our photos are just unbelieveably gorgeous, there is not a single one that we do not like and I am very picky when it comes to photos. Weddings can be so hectic, but they made sure that all the important photos were taken care of without being pushy, like some photographers. They did a whole variety of styles of photos, both traditional and creative, which we loved! This gives us a really great selection to choose from. Overall, we felt their prices were extremely fair. (Remember, you get what you pay for) I think brides and grooms lose focus on where to spend their money. ***Remember, the only thing you will have left from your wedding day will be your photos!!! Make sure you make the right decision, I know we did!!!!***

A complete success! I loved having Saks Photography do my wedding photos and video. I am originally from Buffalo, but my wedding was in Atlanta. I just had to have them! We flew down Ron and Tara for photography and Brooke did the video. Throughout my year of planning, I really got to know Pat and Diane over the phone. Both ladies were extremely helpful and resourceful. The distance didn't hinder any of the plans. Our wedding day was perfect! Ron, Tara, and Brooke worked so well together. We loved them! We all were so very impressed. I rarely knew they were there - incredibly unobtrusive. When we viewed our photos online after we returned from our honeymoon, we were floored. The photos are beautiful and so creative! I love the mix of candid and traditional shots. They captured so many wonderful candid moments. I am so grateful to Saks Photography - they truly did the best job! I highly recommend Saks, especially Ron, Tara, and Brooke! Can't wait to see the video - we are submitting some honeymoon photos we took to add to the video! Super excited!

We had Ron and Brooke as our photographers and we had our video (Tara did it)through them and they were AWESOME! They worked really well together and with us so my hubby and I didn't feel rushed or anything on our day. Our photos were awesome! We got to see the photos about 1 1/2 after the wedding and I was so thrilled. There were detail shots, candids of my guests, and everything in between. I think that we got a good deal for the price as well. For the quality of the work and what we received, you couldn't really go wrong. Our video was also really nice! I would recommend going through them to have both photography and video because like I said before they worked really well together and knew what the other was doing so they didn't get in each other’s way. We went with the blu-ray and it's awesome. I loved watching the people dance - especially my grandparents and watching what people had to say. I was extremely pleased and will be going back for other picture stuff.

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!

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.

Saks photography did a wonderful job at our wedding! Our photographer was wonderful and took so many pictures of the entire day. They follow you from the morning all the way until you leave at the end of the evening! We haven't gotten our pictures yet but I know they will be beautiful. They are a little more expensive than the other local photographers, but Saks is a business that has been around for over 30 years with a great reputation and offered more services than the other places around. This in mind is the main reason why we choose Saks photography to capture all the moments of our special day.

Choosing Saks for our wedding photography was a reference. I enjoyed our pictures thoroughly, however, I had asked for a lot of ad lib pictures (not all posed). The majority of our pictures were all group poses and side shots of those group poses. One of our photographers (I'm assuming the owner) was also very reluctant when I asked for a specific shot. I don't expect an attitude for a simple need when this is your job. The packages Saks offered were great, however for the amount of money you pay things like digital retouching and album preservatives should not be an extra charge (they are). Flexibility is not so great as they don't have too many late hours during the weekdays (when my husband and I both work late) and they are almost unavailable on weekends due to weddings.

Saks Photography and Video responded with the following comments:

We are happy you chose Saks Photography for your wedding photography and are excited that you love your end product. As far as the store hours, we are open daily (minus Wednesday), every Monday and Thursday until 8pm, and every Saturday. We are sorry to hear that our late day and weekend hours do not fit your schedule. As far as the specific shot you had in mind for your wedding, the photographer had specific reasons as to not take the shot, but we are happy once again that you love your photographs. Every photograph that is chosen for all wedding albums is lightly retouched. We charge extra for heavy retouch because of the time and energy that goes into each photograph. Not every client needs photo retouch. As far as album preservatives, we already include 100 year life expectancy photograph paper. Any additional preservatives added on are optional to the client for a minimal charge. Please call the studio with any concerns you may have so that we can help you personally and not anonymously. Thank you again for choosing Saks Photography.

We felt the package we purchased was the best value for our budget. We really liked our photographs, and felt the photographer did a great job. We hardly noticed him throughout the night, and were surprised when we saw the pictures how involved he really was. They did a great job capturing the best moments of our wedding. Working with the staff at the studio itself has been the only problem. They seem to be slightly unorganized, but are friendly. Overall, great value and product.

This is a family owned business. I liked dealing with Diana and one of the daughters that worked at the place of business. They were both very friendly and accommodating. However our main photographer (we had 2) made us feel rushed. I know he needed to capture certain moments, but his "bedside manor" was a little rough. Also some of the pictures had a very high ISO which made them look grainy in the darker atmosphere at the reception. I'm not an expert but I was surprised at the quality of some of the darker pictures. And maybe it was my fault for not specifying, but I would have like some more creative pictures, instead of just "stand here, turn this way, look that way". Overall our pictures turned out beautiful. If I had to do it again, I don't know 100% if I'd choose them again.

I booked Saks at a bridal show based on their reputation and also the deal they were offering for booking on that day. The pictures are very nice, but they're just your basic wedding photos with little to no creativity. There aren't nearly as many pictures of just myself and my husband as I would like, but still, they photos are very nice. I was very turned off by Ron as he made several comments rude about my husbands weight while taking the pictures (this coming from a personal who is hard to offend), but Brooke (who was also taking pictures) was fabulous. I was upset with the service I got when I went in to pick the pictures I wanted as the woman I was working with was rather rude and condesending. The bridal show "deal" made it look at though you were getting several items included in the package price, only to find out you had to pay extra in the end. I also requested a specific item to be included in my price when I had my initial counseltation only to find out it wasn't included and I would again have to pay extra. Overall, I'm only so-so on the pictures, and disappointed with the service.

We had Saks as our photographer and when we initially booked with them, we worked with Pat. She is a very nice lady and was very helpful and friendly. When we had our engagement photos done, i was less than thrilled with the photographer, he was very impatient and cracked jokes that I did not find to be funny. The results-pretty pictures but not very creative. They were just very pretty, ordinary pictures. On the day of the Wedding, we had the same photographer. He once again was not very patient, especially with my ring bearer. I know he was trying to get the best shots possible, but you can't tell me that he never had to deal with a 3yr. old ring bearer before. After the ceremony was over at the church, we took family photos and once again, he was not very patient. We have a very small family so it is not like there were a ton of us where it would be overwhelming. He actually snapped at me, and as the bride, i was less then pleased. I was also embarrassed that my familyand friends had to tell me to not let him ruin my day because they could observe me becoming upset. At the reception, we really did not see him and when I did, I can honestly say that he was busy taking pictures and he did not bother us at all, this i was pleased with. The end results, the pictures once again are very beautiful, but not very creative. I wish there was a shot of the back of my gown or of my jewelry or my beautiful shoes. There were not a lot of shots of myself alone or my husband alone. Also, I had the most beautiful veil ever, and there is not one detailed shot of it. I cannot say that the pictures are bad because they really are beautiful, but again, they are just ordinary pictures. I wish I had asked him for those particular shots, ahead of time, because when that day came, my mind was in a thousand places and I just did not think of it. I was counting on the professional to think of those things.

I heard nothing but great things about Saks, but my experience was quite the opposite. I should have known when my fiance (at the time) and I were sitting in the waiting area and one of their clients was saying what horrible service they had. On my actual wedding day, I thought the girls did a pretty decent job. I had Tara and (I forget her name). They were both very nice and personable. I felt like Tara didn't take control much or direct the group. I had bridesmaids dresses looking sloppy, hands going in opposite directions. As the photographer, she should have noticed the little details. This is what we paid them for.
Then came the viewing of the photos. I was so disappointed in the majority of the photos. There was no creativity. They were all one dimensional shots, same point of view, so boring. There were barely any of just my husband and I. This was my wedding day, and it was so poorly captured.
I chose my photos for the album and asked if certain photos could be black/white because I did not like how the photographer put my shoes on my mother's carpet for a backdrop, that was going to be an additional cost. And if I wanted anything else edited, it would cost extra What photographer does not edit their photos? I can tell you that Wozniak Photography edits everything!!!!
I finally received my photos on a CD, none of them are edited or cropped. They take the photos and give them to you. No editing included. There is no creativity!!!! They only edit 4-5 of them, and that's so they can put them on their facebook page or their website.
And the video.. that was the worst part of the whole experience! I had to return it 5 times due to editing errors!!! Not to mention the quality of the video is crap. There are so many parts where it is shakey or when she tried zooming in, it wobbles. Now, don't get me wrong, there are some decent aspects of it, but overall.. I am displeased in Saks.

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.
