Brent did an absolutely fantastic job with our engagement photo's. He really took his time with us and with photoshop to really create some works of art. This review has been a long time coming. Brent's wife even did my hair for the shoot so we really got the special treatment. I cannot wait until our next milestone in life so Brent can capture those moments for us as well.

Dina's Bridal
( 2.0 / 5.0 )
I was so excited when Dina's carried the dress line I wanted. I had to go to Greenwood Village to try on my dress and I should have bought it there.Don't get me wrong, Gina is super nice, but I feel like my bridesmaids and I were taken advantage of. When it comes to formal wera, I usual wear a 2-4. Gina measured me and told me I needed an 8. I remembered from the size chart on Maggie Sottero's site that I would be a 4. After going back and forth she finally felt "comfortable" ordering me a 6. When She arrived, she was too big all over (& I hadn't lost weight like gina had said). It was a lace-up so there was some room to work with, but the bust was way too big even after Dina sewwed in cups. I ended up spending about $400 on alterations, but had the dress been smaller in the first place that wouldn't have happened. Then it came time to order all my bridesmaid dresses. I know the differences between length and I kept telling Gina that I wanted the cocktail length for the dresses. She insisted that those would be too long and I would need the tea length if I wanted shorter dresses. I flat out told her No and to just order the cocktail length. When it came time to measure my girls, she told 2 of them they would need to pay 10% extra and order the 18W size. My girls aren't little pin thin things, but nor are they pushing into the "women's world" of clothing sizes, so reluctantly we ordered those sizes, only to have them Falling off my girls when they came in. Dina also had the audacity to try to charge my girl for alterations when she told Gina the largest size she wanted to order would be a 12 (and they had to alter the 18w down to a 10). I really think they run a scheme here to order dresses large, so Dina can alter them. Had my dresses been in the correct sizes my review would be so much different.

Bridal Suite
( 1.0 / 5.0 )
Really awkward experience when I first went to try on dresses. I came in with my mom and MOH. The sales girl didn't even bother to greet us. I asked her to pull a certain dress for me, she did, but she just handed it to me instead of putting it up in the fitting room. I had to ask my MOH to help me lace up some of the dresses. The sales girl ordered lunch after we had been there about 15 minutes, it must have been from a friend or someone she knew because she said in an annoyed voice that she would pick it up "when I am able to because I am starving here and I cannot leave". So we left. Poor girl must have been really, really hungry and cranky.
