Elan Artists presents Melissa Barlow Photodocumentary
I worked with Judith and her team for our wedding on July 2 and they were fantastic! I began planning everything with Judith in the fall of 2010, so had quite some time to get to know her and she was really great to work with, both throughout the planning process and the day of. Her portfolio speaks for itself, as her shots are amazing and I am so excited to see the final results from our wedding! She and her team scouted out a great location for us to shoot the day of our wedding, off site from the hotel. They really have an eye for details and just know what will look good. Highly recommend!!
We used Judith Weinberg from Mel Barlow's staff for our wedding photography and were very happy with the quality and editorial aspects of our photos. We have only received our engagement pictures but cannot wait to see our wedding photos. We were looking for a more modern approach to wedding photos and knew that Judith was the right person as soon as we met her! She is energetic, outgoing, and has a great eye for capturing amazing moments.
I wish I could give six stars for Quality Of Service - Mel's photos to us are groundbreaking. We never knew our feelings for each other and our personalities could be captured so artistically. She is quite charismatic as well and befriended the attendees, getting some great shots in the process. She gathered up a fabulous second shooter and he supported her wonderfully with a great vintage polaroid technique. The whole experience was wonderful! Mel is sweet, flexible, fun and extremely talented. Book her before her rates just soar and soar because they will as people realize that she is one of the best of the best!
By the way I wanted to note that Mel Barlow does photography so I'm not sure why someone reveiwed a video service... must have been put under the wrong name.
I worked very hard to find the right wedding videographer, researched it very carefully, and got samples from all. I was really excited when I found Elan....their work looked amazing. I even got a lot of inspiration for other parts of my wedding from the videos that they sent me.
I did not get what I expected...not at all. I was sent gorgeous videos of other couples...very candid and natural.
Josh was very responsive to my phone calls, and he showed up that day and was very professional. However, hat I got back was crap. The editing is nothing of what I thought it would be. it was a total waste of money.
I ended up having to take the raw footage mini casettes, and then paying someone else $100 to transfer it onto a dvd.
This was a total waste of $2000, and the only wedding vendor I was dissapointed in.
I suppose that their mistake was sending me samples of $10,000 packages when they knew I only had $2,000 to spend. It probably would have been much better if they gave me a more realistic expectation of what I was getting for what I was spending. But they didn't. I would not recommend this vendor at all.
