I just booked Vanessa and she is already de-stressing me. =]
As soon as I met with her I just felt so super comfortable with her, she didn't rush me as I talked her ear off and she understood exactly what I wanted. I have no doubt that my wedding will be even better than I imagine because of Vanessa. I booked her for the month-of coordination (getting married in July) but she is already e-mailing me pictures of wedding ideas that reminded her of me! =] and she is so excited about my up-coming engagement session. She really does care! Can't wait to update =]
Although I didn't book Duane as my photographer for the wedding, I thought I should still write a review on the contact I had with him.
A friend of mine mentioned he was the photographer for her wedding, he was fabulous, but also knew he was fabulous and he didn't have a problem letting you know. Because I liked her pictures so much, I decided to contact him.
First things first, on his website it said packages were between 1,900 - 3,100. For the pictures I saw from my friend's wedding, that price was AMAZING! I couldn't wait to book him!
Well, when I contacted him, he said his starting price was 3,000.
I apologized for taking up his time, and mentioned I thought his prices started at 1,900 which is what's stated on his website. He then said let's meet up, we can work something out.
I tried to schedule a few different dates with Duane, but he wasn't very flexible.
I am a court reporter so my schedule varies day to day and I mentioned that to him and every e-mail he just said. I am only available this day. It was always just one day a week and we tried to work something out but he would just say "I'm busy that day."
So I just gave up on contacting him. A few weeks later he contacted me saying "I really want to book your wedding. Let's meet." No hello, how are you, nothing. That's all that was in the e-mail. So once more I tried to schedule something but received the same responses as previous, "I'm busy that day."
I didn't reply to the last e-mail he sent me because he wasn't very helpful or polite. I haven't heard anything from him since. That was over 3 months ago.
I gave him 3 stars because his pictures are gorgeous, but his communication skills need work.

My fiance and I just booked Nixon for our April 2010 wedding. Originally when I inquired about Nixon, the contact I had was not very helpful or friendly so I inquired again hoping to get someone different, and I did, and I couldn't be happier. We have visited three times total. Two times before we booked and one time after we booked to show my parents, his parents and then again to meet the caterer. Not once did Carrie make us feel like we were bothering. We originally were booking for the 30th of April, but later decided to book the 23rd in order to get the photographer we wanted, and she didn't make us feel bad for having to change all of the paperwork, she was so helpful and always has a great attitude. I will give an update after our wedding.
