You are excitedly, diligently, fervently planning your wedding. Going over venues, colors, dresses, tuxedos, flowers … a million details that will add up to the one day in your life that will last in your memory for a life time!

The truth is and any one will tell you is that after 1 year, 10 years or 50 years even you won’t remember, or care, how the food tasted or if the flowers exactly matched the bridesmaids’ dresses.
What you will remember is the look on your fathers face walking you down the isle with tears in his eyes. When you finally say “I Do” and you kiss your Groom. The look on your 3 year old flower girls face when she catches your bouquet.

Your wedding photos and album will carry those memories forward for generations.

Although our photographer personally was a wonderful person, very professional and nice. The company He works for is a joke! All there contact numbers are messages saying they have a new number, they never return phone calls or respond to e mails.

And they were always trying to tell us we owed them more money. Even after we paid for there services in full they would claim they didn’t get payment, and raise there prices from what we had agreed on.

Your company contracted with my son to take their wedding Pictures.
I paid for them, in August of 2011. Their wedding was on October 19, 2011.
We have never received the wedding pictures. I feel that we have been very patient with your company, but it has been 10 months and you have not held up your end of the contract.

I am a very unhappy customer,

Studio one did my wedding and I had three photographers there!! They caught everything from every angle! Every person that came to the wedding had multiple shots taken of them! It was amazing to see my photos and be able to relive the night! They did an amazing job and my entire family is really impressed with the photos!! The photographers were almost invisible so I can not believe how much they got pictures of! When I wanted a photo taken one of them was right there to do it! Weston Hall was amazing, his shots are artistic and meaningful!! I can't even express how happy I am with my experience with Studio one! YOu hear of horror stories about photographers at weddings and it was a relief that everything went perfect for me thanks to studio one!! My price for everything I recieved was amazing and I could not have asked for more. My bridals, engagements, and wedding photos are the best photos I have seen! I have been told by many people the same thing!! Thank you so much Russ and everyone at Studio one including lindsay the receptionist for always calling me back and setting everything up! Also carly the lady I viewed my photos with and took my orders was nice and always did everything perfect! Most of all Weston was amazing at everything and truely a pleasure to have at my wedding!!

As the mother of the bride, my first thought for the wedding photographer was to go with using a family member. My experience with Studio 1 made me totally glad that a professional photographer was used. Afterall, these are the most important photos and family memories of your entire life. Afterwards, when comparing the photos of Studio 1 & those taken by family members, the differences were immediately obvious. With Studio 1, you did get what you paid for. Unsurpassed quality & professionalism throughout. The phortgrapher was excellent; I think he had as much fun at the wedding as the guests did, and was very nice. His choice of shots, etc, some taken with little time to set up, was spot on. He had a nice combination of creativiity, experience and style. Very responsive to different individual's unique needs. Same experience with the rest of the staff, they were courteous and professional. They paid attention to the details of each & every shot. This team of Studio 1 was completely dedicated to making the bride, groom and family happy. If you want someone at your wedding dedicated to capturing every precious moment throughout, the talent of this team can do it. The only issue we ran in to, was that a second photographer had to be sent out at the last minute, and their office didn't call. Important shots were missed, and the ceremony was delayed. It was at this point that the owner, Russ, made it his personal responsibility to make up for this, at whatever the cost. I can assure you that not only did he make up for the mistake, he went above and beyond that to make sure the bride, groom & family were happy with the services of Studio 1. He would not allow the reputation of this business to be associated with anything but the highest standards. Overall, the team of Studio 1 Photography was well worth the cost, and we have so many exceptional photos to enjoy for the rest of our lives. If our house burns down, I'm saving those if nothing else. Bravo to Studio 1!

Please read this full review before deciding to do business with Studio One Photography.

My wife and I hired Studio One to shoot our bridal pictures, and 2 hours of our wedding day. The bridal shoot went good, although it took an additional hour because the photographer kept taking breaks to roll his own cigarettes. When we reviewed the pictures in the studio, we were pleased with them, so we ordered a DVD with all of them on it which cost us $500. When we received the DVD later that week, only a 1/3 of the pictures were on the DVD, and every single one was edited in a way that we did not like. out of 63 pictures on the DVD, only 3 were photos we would ever display!

When we asked them why there were only a 1/3 of the pictures on the DVD, we were told that we were being rude to question the work that they did, and later told by the owner that they had DELETED our pictures from the hard drive, and that they would not re-shoot the photos without charging us more money! around a month later, we received a DVD from the receptionists home address that had the rest of the pictures on it! There was a letter in there stating that she was sorry for any inconvenience that took place and that she took it in her own hands to make the DVD and send it to us without the owner knowing! God bless her!

When it comes to the 2 hours of shooting that we ordered for our wedding day, they called us 2 DAYS before our wedding and told us that we would need to reschedule our wedding because they had another customer that wanted to shoot their wedding on that day! even though we had booked them 4 months in advance, they called us 2 DAYS before our wedding! Obviously we had to find another photographer in the last moments of the wedding planning.

To sum it all up, save yourself the hassle and go with a different photography company, and if you still choose to go with Studio One, then READ THE CONTRACT VERY VERY CAREFULLY! There were parts to our contract that said Studio One could charge us $50/min for and customer service issues if we were not polite to them! So when you have customer service issues, they bring up the contract and say that if you do not ignore your issues, they will say you are being rude and charge you money!

All in all, this was the worst experience I have ever had with any company, and the manager and owner are the worst people to deal with. so if you have to talk to someone ask for the receptionist!

For the ridiculous high price I paid, they should have retouched some of the photos. I've never seen such a greedy photography studio. Don't go there unless you like to waste a lot of money on low-quality service and products.

I wanted to say how great Studio 1 was with me. I have never planned a wedding before so I was nervous about having such little experience and knowledge. I found Studio 1 online and LOVED their work. They had such original pictures and they were such high quality. When I emailed Studio 1 they were quick to respond and were willing to work with my schedule so we could meet. Once I was at their studio everyone was so kind and went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. Like a lot of brides I didn't have a huge budget but they worked with me and my mom until we felt comfortable with the price. I was so thankful because the cost of weddings really add up. Russ and his staff were really knowledgeable about not only wedding photography but weddings in general. (They gave me suggestions for my dress alterations) I would highly recommend studio 1 if you are looking for a low stress photographer that does a great job!

The pictures here turned out niceley that is all that was good about it.

They were absolutley too expensive, we got a deal with them because our reception was at the Chantilly and the price was still astronomical but we decided to trust the Chantilly.

The problems were these:
-When we arrived for our announcement photos nobody knew who we were. The photographer assigned to us was at lunch so we began 40 minutes late.
-We were called to come down to the studio informed that we had won $700. When we arrived they had no idea why they called us down there. After about a half hour of discussion they finally figured out that they had miss read our Chantilly discount. So we made an uneccesary trip from Layton to Salt Lake because of their mistake.
-Also they told us we would have a meeting with our photographers about the kinds of styles that we would want our pictures to be. And we never got to meet with them.

SCAM ARTISTS. They fool you into thinking you won a free prize, then take a $100 deposit from you that they supposedly will return along with a free cd of images, but you get NOTHING but an amateur photographer. I have been contacting them for 7 months now and still nothing. I want my money back like they promised. I can't comment on the quality of the shots because I haven't seen them; they never sent me my wedding photos! BEWARE.

Worst and best photos ever. Starting on the good note- Weston Hall, their principle photographer, is amazing. Punctual, dressed nicely, professional, funny and has a phenomenal eye. I LOVED his shots. He did my initial engagement photos (which I'm crazy about) and then he was one of two photographers from Studio 1 that photographed my wedding. His photos of my wedding are exactly what I wanted and I can't rave enough about them. However, this is where the good ends. Three weeks prior to my wedding, the Studio moved and changed their telephone number--- and didn't tell me. I spent one week stressed out trying to reach them- finally I googled the studio discovered a new address and number. When I called I was routed in circles- to finally connect with them, I had to go there and pin someone down to find out who my second photographer would be! This second photographer, while professional and polite, had the most wretched eye and took the worst photos I've seen. Out of the 300+ photos he snapped that day, over 1 ...

I spent one week stressed out trying to reach them- finally I googled the studio discovered a new address and number. When I called I was routed in circles- to finally connect with them, I had to go there and pin someone down to find out who my second photographer would be! This second photographer, while professional and polite, had the most wretched eye and took the worst photos I've seen. Out of the 300+ photos he snapped that day, over 1/3 of them either have a softbox in the shot (a light the photographers bring with them) or they have people's heads cut out of the frame! If the head isn't out, then it's barely in and in a standard 4x6 photo, there would be a good inch of floor space visible beyond people's feet. In speaking with Rebekah the owner, she said there was 'nothing wrong' with the photographs. Check out their website- they don't have photos like mine on there. To say that I am frustrated and displeased with this studio is an extreme understatement. If I could book Weston again without going through Studio 1, I would. I can't say enough positive things about his abilities behind a camera. However, if they 'hook' you like they hooked me, they will do what is called a Bait and Switch. They didn't even sell me on Weston- they sold me on this other photographer that used to be on their staff named either Brent or Brett- and Weston was his understudy. They said their 'best photographers' would be put on my wedding, but they would not commit to whom that would be. They suggested this would likely be Brent and Weston working together. After being sold the photo package by the owner's husband, Russ, in November-- I waited 2 months to find out who my photographer would be. I was told Brent was no longer in their employ, and that Weston would be doing my pictures. We had engagements the beginning of February, and they were amazing- quick turn around, 2 weeks in fact, on roughly 150 photos. Color was great- and I was thrilled with my choice of photographer for the wedding. That is- until I got my wedding photos and saw the work of Dave. I will update this posting and let people know what becomes of the wretched photos- they suggested that they can be fixed with cropping, which I want nothing to do with. First of all, I paid a fair amount of money for my venue (the McCune Mansion downtown- GORGEOUS!!) and I want that background in my photos. If they are cropped to make it look like they intended to cut the heads off, or allow minimal space at the top, then my pictures will turn into close-up photos (chest up) and I will loose the amazing setting for the wedding. The other alternative is to digitally add an inch above peoples heads- which of course I think is dubious because I want these photos to be printed on a large scale. In summation, I would not recommend Studio 1. If you do choose to go with them, make sure you specify Weston will be your photographer- and get it in writing.

Worst and best photos ever. Starting on the good note- Weston Hall, their principle photographer, is amazing. Punctual, dressed nicely, professional, funny and has a phenomenal eye. I LOVED his shots. He did my initial engagement photos (which I'm crazy about) and then he was one of two photographers from Studio 1 that photographed my wedding. His photos of my wedding are exactly what I wanted and I can't rave enough about them. However, this is where the good ends. Three weeks prior to my wedding, the Studio moved and changed their telephone number--- and didn't tell me. I spent one week stressed out trying to reach them- finally I googled the studio discovered a new address and number. When I called I was routed in circles- to finally connect with them, I had to go there and pin someone down to find out who my second photographer would be! This second photographer, while professional and polite, had the most wretched eye and took the worst photos I've seen. Out of the 300+ photos he snapped that day, over 1 ... Starting on the good note- Weston Hall, their principle photographer, is amazing. Punctual, dressed nicely, professional, funny and has a phenomenal eye. I LOVED his shots.

I spent one week stressed out trying to reach them- finally I googled the studio discovered a new address and number. When I called I was routed in circles- to finally connect with them, I had to go there and pin someone down to find out who my second photographer would be! This second photographer, while professional and polite, had the most wretched eye and took the worst photos I've seen. Out of the 300+ photos he snapped that day, over 1/3 of them either have a softbox in the shot (a light the photographers bring with them) or they have people's heads cut out of the frame! If the head isn't out, then it's barely in and in a standard 4x6 photo, there would be a good inch of floor space visible beyond people's feet. In speaking with Rebekah the owner, she said there was 'nothing wrong' with the photographs. Check out their website- they don't have photos like mine on there. To say that I am frustrated and displeased with this studio is an extreme understatement. If I could book Weston again without going through Studio 1, I would. I can't say enough positive things about his abilities behind a camera. However, if they 'hook' you like they hooked me, they will do what is called a Bait and Switch. They didn't even sell me on Weston- they sold me on this other photographer that used to be on their staff named either Brent or Brett- and Weston was his understudy. They said their 'best photographers' would be put on my wedding, but they would not commit to whom that would be. They suggested this would likely be Brent and Weston working together. After being sold the photo package by the owner's husband, Russ, in November-- I waited 2 months to find out who my photographer would be. I was told Brent was no longer in their employ, and that Weston would be doing my pictures. We had engagements the beginning of February, and they were amazing- quick turn around, 2 weeks in fact, on roughly 150 photos. Color was great- and I was thrilled with my choice of photographer for the wedding. That is- until I got my wedding photos and saw the work of Dave.
