Initial meeting with Craig went well and he was very responsive. From the time we signed an agreement with him to the actual wedding day, the response times were mediocre. The engagement pictures turned out well and he was very personable. It wasn't until the time after the wedding when it seemed like you received absolutely no response from him. It's been 9 months since the wedding and we have yet to receive our final album. This is after text messages, 10+ follow up emails, with either no response or a response 2-3 weeks later. Overall, pictures turned out ok. For the price, I would have expected better service and response time throughout the period, pre and post wedding.

We searched for a few months for the perfect photographer, and thought we had found that in Studio563. Our initial meeting with Craig (the main photographer) went great, and we were very happy with the outcome of our engagement photos. This is the only reason I am giving 2 stars on quality of service. Unfortunately, things went downhill after that.

Throughout the wedding day and night, I had the nagging feeling that the photographers (Craig and the second photog) were not capturing the pictures that we really wanted. To be more specific, we wanted pictures with our friends and family who were there, not just candids of people dancing and standing around. At one point I grabbed the second photographer and had him walk with me to take pictures with various family members and friends just to make sure we had them.

Two and a half months later, we received the proofs, and were confused to see that many pictures we remembered taking were not included. When we inquired, Craig admitted that the second photographer had lost one of his cards, which we believe contained the majority of the photos he took that night. While disappointing, we recognize that mistakes happen, and were willing to work with Craig to discuss options for rectifying the situation. Unfortunately, Craig became unresponsive for weeks at a time, which added unneeded stress to the situation. He finally agreed to refund a very small portion of the money we had paid for the event coverage, but made sure we knew he "stood by the quality of the work." The refund arrived about 9 months after the wedding, and only after asking for it many times over without response. The saddest part was the pictures we did have were underwhelming at best, and I haven't looked back at them since we received them.

My brother got married this spring, and we used a family member to take pictures instead. They turned out great and everyone was happy. Too bad we didn't do this for our own wedding!

My fiance and I have discussed many times vendors we would recommend to our friends for their upcoming weddings. Without a doubt - Studio563Houston. All of our vendors had some type of hiccup/issue but not them. Photography was at the top of our list while planning this wedding, and Studio563 was worth every penny. After all, when the day comes and goes, pictures are all you have left.

Working with April and Craig was definitely an awesome experience. I still remember our first meeting with April; she was wonderful to work with. Cherry on top?? - She looked up the sunset time for our wedding, so that we may consider utilizing the intimate lighting for a few extra photos between the ceremony and reception. Might I add that our meeting was in February, our wedding in October. Needless to say, she was on top of the game. Meeting with Craig to collaborate what we were envisioning for our special day made us excited for our wedding day again (and believe me, by that time, it was MUCH needed). After getting to know him, it definitely made every photo shoot easier. Craig went above and beyond what we could ever imagine or even expected. The attention to detail these two have are impressive. Our experience was professional yet personable.

Haven't received any final products yet, but if it correlates with any of the services that we have received thus far, I don't doubt we will be impressed once again.

HIGHLY recommend!!!!!

Of all the decisions we had to make to prepare for our wedding, the decision to go with Craig at Studio 563 was by far the best decision we made. I was a "Type A" bride and from our first meeting with Craig and April, we were amazed at the quality of service, professionalism and attention to detail. Craig is truly an artist who captured each priceless moment of our wedding and was even able to capture our personalities. I am so glad that we entrusted the most special day or our lives to Craig- he exceeded all expectations!

I loved the way our wedding pictures turned out! Craig is a true artist with his camera. And April was so helpful at answering all of my questions and explaining everything to me. I would definitely recommend Studio563 to anyone I know that is looking for a photographer.

They went above and beyond for me and my family. You will not regret having them shoot your wedding!

What a company! Family oriented and so fun! They claim to capture emotion and live up to their claim! The pictures are beautiful and they provide excellent service too. They know what to look for, and how to remain in the background and still capture the great moments.

We used Studio 563 for our wedding photos and were absolutely with both the overall experience and the photos. They are incredilbe and really care about making the wedding day a truly unique and special day for the bride and groom and their families. They bring it to life in a way that no other photographer can and do an excellent job. They care about their clients, are are passionate at what they do and that shows in the finished product that they delivered to us. If you want top notch pictures and a great experience on your wedding day there is no doubt that you need to use Craig and April at Studio 563. They are some of the best people that I have ever met and they will make your wedding day a wonderful experience and provide photos for a life time of visual memories.
