Let me start by saying that I truly love all my photos and I would definitely recommend Sam to my friends. There are pros and cons to every photographer, and for me, Sam's pros definitely outweigh the cons. I love his unique style, and when I asked him to capture all the little do it yourself details, he really captured EVERYTHING. He even spoke with my planner and other vendors to make sure that he got a photo of everything I might think is important. I also love that he puts some of his favorite shots on facebook the day after the wedding! My family and I loved seeing these photos right away. The cons are minor, but might be important to others. First, he has an accent so it's sometimes hard to understand what he's saying. Second, he isn't super fun/funny, and taking lots of pictures can be draining on the bridal party after awhile so make sure you have somebody around to lighten up the mood. My other vendors didn't have a super great rapport with him. For me, in the end this didn't really matter.

If you like his style, I fully recommend him. If you're looking for more of a modern style with super high quality, and lots of close ups, he's not the guy for you.

Sam, the owner, is great, friendly, and professional. We loved our pictures and album! However, we had one little minor iccident. The package we picked was for a contracted photographer and when he came to our wedding he brought along his "assistant", no one knew of this and she rode in our limo which was already full and we had to give her a place to sit and eat. So as the night went on guests were noticing this girl standing on the side texting all night. someone asked her who she was and she said she is the daughter of the photographer. So not only did we have to fit her into the limo, feed her, and let her drink from our bar, now she was in the background of our pictures texting. That was very rude and unprofessional.

Sam did our engagement photos and they turned out amazing. I wish he was the one to do our wedding.

Sam was great to work with on our wedding day. We have over 700 proofs to choose from for our wedding album. Our engagement pics did not turn out how a lot of the ones on his web-site shows. He does put the "best of the best" on the web, however, my friends and family absolutly love our pics. We chose sam because we did not do a videographer, and we wanted amazing pics. We do have that!!

Photography is not something you want to skimp on. I had seen Sam's work from my friends and he is a great artist. The only complaint I have is that I prefer "action" shots, and their weren't enough of those. Also, a lot of "serious" poses required of my husband and I, which again I prefer to laugh rather than pose. On the wedding day I just trusted him but wish I would've told him more of what I wanted. He is great and would've probably done whatever I asked. I have my proof's but not my official book yet but there are plenty of pictures to choose from.

We were VERY disappointed when it came time to receive our proposal/engagement photos. When we had first contacted him he had mentioned that we would receive some photos included with the initial fee of $350. For the whole set, it'd be an extra $250.

When we went to view our photographs, we were then told that $350 only include FOUR photos. And to receive the full set we'd be paying an additional $600 or $100/picture. We feel as if we were grossly misled. He took a very important moment of our lives and exploited it.

Although he took great pictures, our wedding albulm was a disaster, and despite his promises, he did not stand behind his work. We spent quite a bit of money for an upgraded digital albulm and we have duplicate and triplicate pictures in it. He said he would fix it, and although he made a few changes, it still was a mess. He was unwilling to fix the albulm so that we were happy...and people who look at our albulm don't flip between the pages and point of the mistakes to us.

We don't show it to anyone anymore.
