I was very excited to hire the Jorgensens at first. All their photos they have on display are amazing however; the pictures I received were not at all like the ones I saw on display. Further, they forgot to take SEVERAL key pictures including ones of me and the groom with our parents, our invitation, our seating card, etc. My mom was so upset not to have a group picture and when I pointed this out to them Rosie did not even apologize and turned it around and blamed it on me and the fact that my groom had a big family. We told the Jorgensens well in advance that the groom has a big family and if they couldn't handle that they should have told us before. We wouldn not have hired them then. I don't think it is the brides responsibility to remind the Jorgenens on what pictures need to be taken the day of the wedding- THAT"S WHAT I WAS PAYING THEM FOR! Rosie was very difficult to work with and she was rude to all my other vendors. She photoshopped pictures for me and provided us with a free enlargement but only after several emails and arguments and still there was no apology for their mistake. Don was trying to work with us to rectify the mistake but Rosie made it very difficult. Save your time and go with another photographer. They may have been good photographers before but I think they stopped putting in the effort. I was really disappointed, it shouldn't be stressful to work with a vendor and that is exactly what they made it.

I would caution you to make sure that the Jorgensens style of ‘directing the day’ is one you are comfortable with. It has pros and cons. For what you are paying, I would have liked them to be more flexible on certain points. They have loads of experience and take beautiful pictures. However, unfortunately they missed two very important photos from our wedding day: The Bride (me) with my immediate family (parents, brother/his wife/their kids). And the same photo with my husband in the picture. I realize mistakes do happen but ironically that was a big reason for hiring a directorial style photographer, I didn’t want to worry about keeping track of what photos were taken. I brought it to their attention and no apology was initially given, no money back, so I asked them to photoshop my parents into the picture, and they were noncommittal if it could be done. They finally emailed me a photo (the only photo I now have of my immediate family on our wedding day) and I thought my parents didn't look their best so I asked if they could try again. I was told "it took us 4-5 hours to do this, and that's the best we can do, hope it helps". I was disappointed but at the end of the day they do nice work and we like our photos just wish it wasn't so forced - people were getting annoyed at being told what to do and I felt bad.

The Jorgensens responded with the following comments:

Yes, we missed a photograph and expressed how sorry we were. We believe we did the best we could to make up for it. Often we do need to be "directorial" in order to create family photographs in an efficient and timely manner.

The Jorgensens were the best! You don't realize how important the pictures are for your wedding day until the day is over. We are so happy that we chose the right photographers to not only take these photographs that would forever hold the memory of our very special day; but they were also a joy to spend our day with. From the beginning Rosie and Don were a pleasure to work with, both very friendly and at the same time detail oriented,organized and fun. We knew we loved them after our engagement photo session. The couple is very upbeat and does a great job of creating and maintaining an ambience of love and romance. We are thankful for their exceptional work and professionalism.

The pictures are beautiful!!!!!I love the way they came out. The only thing we didn't like to much was for the albums they all have to be the same pictures, so what goes in you album also goes in the parent ones. Just an FYI to future brides they got to my house about 3 hours before the ceremony because they also needed to get pictures of the groom, so I had to rearrange the time for hair and makeup time but it was not a big deal. Overall these guys are great and any bride would be very happy with the pictures, there just amazing. I think The Jorgensens are the best around, they really know what they are doing, and are very professional.

The Jorgensen's photographed our wedding beautifully. The photo's came out wonderful! I have gotten so many comments that they look straight out of a wedding magazine! We didn't look "staged or stiff" just natural and they really captured our true personalities. They were very creative with poses and backdrops. Rosie really understand's the importance of small changes in body position that really make or break a photo! They were very efficient and flexible taking most of our photo's before the ceremony so that we had plenty of time with our guests during the reception. We actually planned our wedding from afar and never had a chance to meet them in person and they were so flexible and understanding. We even Skyped to first meet and discuss our wants and needs! They were always available for phone calls with questions and really made our planning a lot less stressful! We had many photographer choices but we chose The Jorgensen's because of their professionalism, their great portfolio of samples and because they also took video clips during our wedding day and made a still image/video clip slideshow to a song of our choice. It came out great and is such a perfect added bonus to remember the day. I would recommend their service to anyone looking for the perfect photographer to capture the story of your wedding day!
