This guy obviously has an "A" game if you go in his studio and look on the walls, however we did not get it. We got his "D" game at best.The owner is a GREAT salesman, he promises the world and delivers next to nothing. I am on the board of the Lake Jackson Soccer Club...we hired his company to take the pictures of our Fall teams and players. Not only did it take 2 months for him to get back with us, and he promised to call us when they were done...this never happened. Some of his staff is very young, rude and has a lot to learn about customer service. The quality of the pictures we received was horrible. I could have done better with my I-phone and would had if I would had known this is what we were going to get. This guy talks out of both sides of his mouth and is not trust worthy. You can take a chance but when he does not return your calls and makes promises he does not intend to keep you too will be sorry you ever heard of this place.

My dear friend Stephanie recommended TriCoast to me, and I AM SO THANKFUL! Everyone at Tricoast is amazing to work with: Mike, Jordan, Cody, Suzy- great people. Not only is their work amazing (they made me feel like a model), but they're so fun to be around. I am self-conscious and camera-shy, and yet I couldn't believe how comfortable they made me and how much fun we were having. I recommend Tricoast to anyone who wants top-quality photos with a photog company that they can trust.

I got Jordan to do pictures for my wedding and reception and he is a very very good photographer. He also did my before wedding pictures and it's like he's known me forever because he knew that I didn't want the traditional kind of pictures but rather grungy ones. They came out absolutely beautiful! A little on the expensive side but definitely worth it!

I can't say enough about TriCoast! Photography was one of our top priorities so I spent a ton of time researching a studio that would provide me with photojournalistic, fun, and beautiful images. I got their highest package which provided four photographers and have so many images that I love. For my Philadelphia wedding, I covered their travel costs which were minimal in my mind compared to the incredible service and product that I received. In addition to their talent, the team at TriCoast was so professional. I never felt like they were obtrusive in any way, yet they captured every moment - from the happiness my husband and I felt as we walked down the aisle to the my husband's emotional reaction to his brother's best man toast. I loved planning my wedding, and it was truly the happiest day of my life. Post wedding, the images are really the only thing you have to remember that incredible day.

I hate to rate these guys so low. Their photographs were amazing, but more than 2 years after our wedding we have yet to receive our wedding album or parent albums that were included int he price of our package. We managed to brow-beat them into giving us the digital negatives about a year ago, so I've been able to have my own prints made. I was so pleased with the quality of the pictures, its unfortunate that I cannot reccomend them. The guys have even taken to avoiding and not returning my husbands calls. If they hadn't given us the digital negs I would have taken legal action long ago.
