This photographer was recommended by a friend. We sat with her and loved her and her work. Soon after there was a death in my family and a delay in getting her a deposit. In that time she was booked but assured me that her team would do an amazing job. I sent her samples of the type of photos I wanted. The team was unfamiliar with my wedding hall and church, they did not take the kinds of photos I wanted and in every picture my dress was not layed out, was a mess on the floor and looked terrible. I payed so much for my dress and you can't see any detail with me in it. I was so upset. I was also told by a few guests after my wedding that the team she sent was walking around and fooling around with eachother and taking selfies during my reception. I do like some of the photos very much but majority of them I do not. I got many compliments on how unique our thank yous were and the book came out very nice. I would recommend Sandi herself but not the team she sent me.

Sandi Rufo Photography responded with the following comments:

I'm so sorry that you had an unpleasant experience. I did let you know up front that I was booked for your wedding day but wanted to help you out under the circumstances I agree that the photos were not as good as they should have been which were shot by Nicole Rochelle Photography. But I did photoshop everything I could and created both a beautiful album and thank you card. This review would be better suited for her than I.

Photography was one of the most important aspects of the wedding for me and I couldn't be happier that we ended up choosing Sandi. Sandi and her assistant Kerry did a fantastic job capturing out wedding day! They were incredibly personable putting my husband and I at ease and making the picture taking process fun. Our pictures were even ready within a week of us getting back from our honeymoon! We had such a great time going though all the photos and reliving all the fun of our wedding day. It took forever to narrow it down to the ~140 we liked best for our album because there were so many we both loved. We also had a very large wedding party (8 bridesmaids and 9 groomsmen) and Sandi did a fantastic job of getting great pictures of them all. We would highly recommend Sandi to anyone for both her awesome personality and the high quality of her work.

Sandi added such a special touch to our wedding! I selected her initially because I appreciated her ability to take photos that look honest as she captures the essence of the moment and she is comfortable photographing large dogs-my furry kids. Sandi is extremely organized, flexible to meet your needs, pays special attention to making her clients feel comfortable & valued, she joins you in your excitement and truly loves her work! The photos she captured of our wedding are beautiful!

I first met Sandi when I was searching for a photographer to do our engagement photos. I had a unique situation that many photographers did not want to accommodate. I just wanted engagement photos, I did not want it to be part of a wedding package because I did not need wedding photos since I was having a destination wedding in Aruba. Sandi was willing to accommodate this request and came up with a lot of great ideas on how we could incorporate our dog in to the photos. Before our engagement photo shoot was over I asked my husband, if he was interested in talking to Sandi about possibly coming to Aruba to shoot our wedding there. I feel in love with her instantly, and after searching all the wedding photographers in Aruba I knew I would not get the quality I was looking for from anyone down there. After we received our engagement photos we met with Sandi at her house to discuss a plan to have her come to Aruba. Sandi did join my husband and I in Aruba in June to shoot our wedding. She first met my husband in his room to take pictures and then came to my room. I was so overwhelmed but she acted as such a calming force. Sandi did everything we asked her and came up with a lot of creative ideas for fun photos in Aruba. She was willing to do whatever we asked and was always there to help. The day after the wedding we also met with Sandi to take photos on the beach and in more remote areas of the island. Spending time with Sandi and taking the photos the day after the wedding was one of the highlights of our trip. Sandi had edited and posted all the photos of the wedding before we were even home from out trip, but was courteous enough not to post them without our permission since we were not home yet. All in all, to sum up Sandi and her work is to say she is an amazing photographer, and more importantly an amazing person. You will not be disappointed!

What can we say about Sandi and her second assistant Kerri, they were timely and so friendly and gracious. Sandi showed up at our venue and immediately began taking shots of all my details and Kerri took shots of the guys while I was at the salon getting my hair and make-up done, the whole day went smoothly. I had no idea how to set up a timeline for the big day and she took charge and did it for me, and I basically sent it on to my videographer, and venue. Sandi had done weddings at our venue, Three Village Inn, before so we were confident she would be able to get us some amazing shots because she knows the area so well. We never got the chance to meet Sandi or Kerri before our wedding because we live in Brooklyn, and with traffic and not always having access to a car, it was just too difficult to get out to Long Island during the weekdays. That didn't matter though because meeting Sandi and Kerri on the day of our wedding they were fantastic and definitely clicked very well with my husband and I. Sandi was able to help my us with poses and to be as natural as possible, which is our style. Sandi completed editing and sent us a link to our photos in about a week, we couldn't believe it. We left for our honeymoon and the day after coming back, we got to see ALL of our edited photos. The quality of the photos is impeccable, crisp clean colors and the black and white selections are gorgeous. None of those terrible fuzzy edged photos and dark backgrounds. Everything represented the beautiful weather we had and the soft peaches and greys of our color scheme. Sandi really has a great eye for beautiful photos and angles. Hopefully soon, we'll be able to get an album done with her, which we are certainly looking forward to. We would recommend Sandi to anyone we know getting married because we're so pleased with her and the quality of her work.

We booked Sandi early in our engagement and could not have made a better decision. Sandi did our engagement pictures which came out awesome, everyone ranted and raved about them. Sandi also did our wedding, and the pictures are breathtaking. We knew we did not want a "cookie cutter" photography and Sandi fulfilled all our hopes and dreams when it came to pictures. She took creative and original shots all day long. She was so easy to work with, flexible and fun to be around. She never made us feel rushed or pressured to do any shots, she was just so easy to work with. Our friends and family loved working with her as well. She made us feel as if we knew her for years and the pictures were just amazing, we recommend her to everyone we know!

Sandi shot our wedding July 27th, 2013 and simply put did an unbelievable job. There are so many great things I can say about her skill, her kindness, her ease of working with, I could go on for awhile. To start it off she was so sweet to my bride when they first met, she explained her style, showed us prints of past weddings, explained her cost, etc. Sandi put my wife's mind at ease that we we're making the right choice and instantly took away all of the stress in choosing a photographer. She broke the cost down into three separate payments leading up to the wedding, which made everything a lot easier and affordable. She even sent us a wedding present a couple weeks prior to the wedding, how amazingly sweet. The day of the wedding Sandi had all the information she needed ahead of time, met my wife at the hair salon, followed her to her house, beat her to the church to get photos of my groomsmen and I, found amazing places and ideas for taking all of the photos and was a "photography ninja" getting so many great shots, without even being seen. My wife doesn't like "posing" for pics and feels weird when the cameras on her yet, we have so many great shots when she didn't even know Sandi was focused on her. Sandi also didn't have to interrupt either of us with any questions throughout the day, she knew everything she needed to know about what we wanted and what she needed to do well before the wedding day. Everything was such a breeze. Also, we all know how long it takes to receive your photos after the wedding, or at least we thought we did. Sandi had our photos to us before we got home from our honeymoon. Sandi's screen prints are great, her books are stunning and her photo thank you cards are amazing! She's worth every cent and then some.When you meet with her, look up on her wall you'll see some of Sandi's beautiful work with my beautiful wife and I sitting on the beach under a pink/orange umbrella.

Sandi was a pleasure to work with from our first meeting straight to ordering our AMAZING album! She was always quick every question I had, gave perfect advice and really took our opinions and requests seriously. Onto the most important part.....the fantastic memories she gave us. Her eye for photos is spot on. She took photos of things I wouldn't even think of, caught emotions that I will treasure forever and did it all with us hardly even noticing she was there so we could completely enjoy our day. Sandi was also so great with the turnaround of our order! I had my thank you cards less than a month after the wedding and she had designed our album not even a week after I sent her our proof choices. I can't even tell you how happy you will be if you choose Sandi for your event. Book her now :0))

I absolutely loved working with Sandi. The first day I met her, I knew she would be our photographer. She has a great personality and really puts you at ease. She did engagement and wedding pictures for my husband and I; both of which turned out amazing. The day of she brought an assistant, they showed up on time and ready. I had a lot of requests, and changes throughout the process. Sandi was great with everything though and accommodated everything I wanted; she definitely went above and beyond. I never felt like I was a bother with my requests, and I loved being one of "her brides" and all the surprises that came with that! We cannot thank her enough for the amazing pictures of our wedding day that we will have forever. We will definitely be recommending Sandi to family and friends.
