Jeff was amazing and so much fun to work with! He kept our session laid back and silly just as we'd hoped he would. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer! We got the pictures so quickly we'll have time to show them off at our reception. Very professional but personable.

a year later, we finally decided to write a review. really werent happy with their work, but have tried to let it go. hindsight is 20/20, now we have a firm grasp of what we missed out on when we see other people's pictures and hear about their experiences with other photographers. we hired sam and harry from this company. for 5000, this is what we got....

1. an engagement session that was in one word: pathetic. it was about 45 minutes long, with sam's young son holding the reflectors. sam was late for our appointment because his son had baseball practice and apparently sams the coach. we arrived at his house as instructed and had to wait a while. it also happened to be just about a week before our wedding. because of scheduling conflicts, it was our last chance. it was evening time and the sun was almost going down. we visited a parking lot in downtown sac that had some artwork, and a nearby rose garden near the capitol. we had a few poses, and many shots of the same poses. 45 minutes, at 2 locations. we were able to pick out a few photos that we liked, but definitely embarrasing when we compare with our friends' experiences

2. these guys were very patient on the wedding day. they spent about 10 hours with us and never got in the way of others, very nice and polite to us and all of our guests. the experience of the wedding day was perfect....

3. quality of pictures. nothing that was spectacular or left us with the impression that says "wow that was awesome." there were alot of shots that were quite nice, but many of them were plain. not all picutres were edited as they should have been and alot of them were unusable. for example, posed shots taken in the church were much too dark and underexposed, while all the pictures at the reception were aweful. at the reception we had a backdrop set up for all arriving guests and had told sam we wanted all those shots cropped to take out the backdrop frames, he never did that. also, hes about 6 feet tall and we're asian, alot of those shots are angled down at us, which makes it even worse. many of the rest of the reception picutres were taken with a fisheye lens, which looks cool sometimes but thats a matter of taste, and that didnt realliy fit out taste. we picked this company because their studio and website shows alot of pictures that are fantastic, unique, and outstanding. we wonder now if those were taken by other people??

4. album. the album was very nice. whichever employee that designed it did an awesome job. only thing was that out of the 80 photos that we were allowed, we had to use about 30 or so of our own pictures from family and friends because there wasnt enough photos from sharpe photography that we felt were album worthy. we tried not to use photos from friends and family because different photographers have different styles, but whoever designed our album put it together seemlessly. also, would like to add that the album is of very high quality.

5. punctuality. sam was late with pretty much everything. whenever he promised something by a certain date, he never met that date. sending us the cd of photos, time to edit the photos, album draft, finished album, pretty much anything and everything was late. it took alot of patience, especially when we paid so much and were newlyweds, there just seemed to be no sense of urgency on his part and it drove us crazy.

when we see our friends have their engagement shoots, sometimes with video montages, and they go to beautiful sites all day long, and have wedding pictures that turn out great, while paying 1-2 thousand less than we did, always leaves a bad taste in our mouths because we paid more, and got less. bottom line: not recommended

We hired Jeremy Underwood at Sharpe Photography to handle all of our wedding photos. He was absolutely awesome with the engagement photos! On our wedding day... it was a little different. He seemed rushed. He didnt caption ANY creative shots that Sharpe Photgraphy is known for. His pictures lacked the professionalism that we expected when we paid top dollar for his services. Sharpe is a reputable photography Co. in town.. I would recommend them however I would think twice before going with Jeremy Underwood.

We hired Sam from Sharpe Photographers for our wedding, and we couldn't have been more pleased. Before we selected Sam, we were going back and forth in our decision between him and one other photographer whose pricing was less than Sam's, but loved Sam's work, and it was better than any of the photographers that we interviewed. He was amazing. Our photos are fabluous -- just what I imagined, and Sam and his assistant made us feel so comfortable through all of the photos. The hardest decision we have had to make so far is how to narrow down the photos to include in our album. They are all fabulous. I would highly recommend Sam and I would definitely hire him again if I have the opportunity to have any other photgraphs taken for any other reason.

We used Sam Wood from Sharpe Photography. They were one of the pricier photographers we looked at, but his work was by far the best. We had Sam and his assistant for 7 hours for about $3,700. Out of that, we get a coffee table book, online viewing and we own our proofs. We also got an engagement picture sitting. Sam was very open to our suggestions for pictures and when my husband and I got tired of taking pictures after the ceremony and were ready to get to the reception, he didn't hassle us to take more pictures. The pictures are perfect and I couldn't be happier with my pictures. I have seen some pictures from friends' weddings and none were nearly as good as these. I would highly highly recommend Sharpe Photographers.

We loved working with Sam from Sharpe Photography! He was incredibly easy to get in touch with and did a remarkable job shooting our engagement photos! We got along perfectly with him and throughout the wedding he let us enjoy our special day while still making sure to capture all those special moments!
