As is normal, the day promised a 60%
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
of typical thunderstorms.
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
, the owner of
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
, kept in touch and we decided that the sunset would likely be clear. Based on the timing we thought it best to stay in our town, Treasure Island.
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
suggested a good location, gave us directions, and we met.
Knowing that sunset puts a specific ending time on the photo session,
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
began immediately with normal groupings for the photos.
She made a point to ask if there were specific poses we wanted, and also suggested shots. She made the process easy, and was very efficient and professional. As we wre being 'arranged', we were all relaxed and had fun. That, of course, is reflected by the photos.
There were countless variations of poses, and as the cut off time (sunset) approached,
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
arranged us to take advantage of the remaining light.
The service is good value, which includes photo editing, touch up and 50 images which we own.
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
is a very professional and straighforward in their business. At the same time,
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
provides a very personal service in a way that is relaxing and enjoyable way. This, of course, makes for memorable photographs.

and
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
arrived early to check out the venue (which was our home and outdoor area). I had emailed
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
a list of photos which I wanted taken throughout the night. I also told her to take photos of anything she felt relevant to the night and occasion. We wanted to remember everything! There was not one requested picture that was not taken! Great job! I also must mention that our photos look great in spite of a dust storm, lighting strikes, a very long thunderstorm, and a huge amount of humidity produced not only by the storm but by the fact we forgot to turn our misting system off during the storm. Job Well Done by
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked

Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked

Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked

Thanks again!

and his wife
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
listened to what we wanted and provided exactly what we asked for. They showed up on time and made us feel at ease and comfortable. They photographed the wedding party, the entire wedding group, the ceremony and took some candid shots. They were very professional but also very friendly and personable. The finished product was really great with lots of different options to choose from. We highly recommend

Terrible!
First, it took nearly a year to get the photos, including the 'thank you' photo book. Second, photographs were taken at home and at the church, but not much else. Very few photos were taken at the reception. No photos were taken of individual guest tables or the venue, itself. But worse than that, the video was atrocious. Besides an incredibly boring 45 minutes of dancing - as if the camera had been placed on a tripod and left there - there was no video of the traditional bride/father-of-the-bride dance!! We reached out to
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
immediately, but 1 1/2 years of ignoring our calls and complaints later, there is still no resolution. At this point, we don't expect one.
The sad thing is that we recommended
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
to a friend and now we feel terrible about doing so.
Please avoid at all costs!!!

I originally purchased a $35 Groupon that included a family photo shoot and 8x10 print. The office staff at
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
was very responsive with scheduling the shoot and providing extensive details and instructions re: the overall process. In addition to the actual photo shoot, a follow-up appointment at their studio is also required to view the photos and place an order. I rescheduled the shoot a few times and they were very accommodating.
On the day of the shoot, we were late. My child wouldn't eat lunch, was tired, etc. etc.
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
was great about our being late and didn't make me feel guilty at all. He was really good about getting the shoot underway and making my daughter, who can also get very guarded around strangers, feel comfortable. The actual photo shoot was upbeat, fun and went by fairly quickly (30 mins?).
When we went to the studio to see the pictures, they were SO amazing.
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
was able to beautifully capture really special moments that will definitely have a special place in our family for years to come. Somehow during the photo shoot, he also captured a few candid video moments, which was a nice surprise. Because I loved many of the photos, I ended up purchasing more than the 8 x 10 that was included in the package, and ended up paying around $450. I didn't feel pressure to purchase the additional photos, but it was impossible to pick just one.

The entire experience was great! Mr. and Mrs.
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
met us at our hotel the night before the actual wedding for a final review of what we wanted. They helped keep everyone on schedule without ever hurrying or rushing anyone. Our family commented on how professional they were and on how well everyone looked in the pictures. We could not be more satisfied! Not only were the poses we suggested done, but Mr.
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
always had another idea for us to try. Many of those "other ideas" ended up as our final selections and are in our album. The coverage was thorough and complete. We never felt rushed or hurried, and never felt the Fausts were in a hurry, either. It was more a sense that they were there to help us celebrate our marriage. Follow up and service after the big day were equally good. We sat down and reviewed what had been taken before going home to make our selections, what our options were, and what they would cost. All of the pricing was upfront and clear, without any "upselling." My wife and I are very satisfied with the professionalism of Mr. and Mrs.
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
, the service and product they provided, and the price we were charged. We have recommend them whenever the opportunity comes up.

"Bad" does not begin to describe our experience with
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
/Avalon Studios. I consider this a public service message: please do not use him for your wedding pictures!!
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
took our wedding pictures this past May, and in a nutshell we have almost no usable pictures of our wedding day and are having to pursue legal action to get our files from him.

Specifically:

1.)
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
's wife told my mother-in-law on our wedding day that he is actually blind, which we had never been told. The fact that he has vision problems became very apparent after we saw the pictures.

2.)
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
made us pay the total amount upfront, before he would let us see any of the pictures he had taken.

3.) The pictures are not just awful, they're also nonsensical and sad. A few examples: the pictures before the wedding are so dark you can't see faces, and so uncentered that some people are cut in half while there are yards of empty space on the other side of the picture; there are several pictures with people's heads cut off; the cake cutting pictures do not include the cake (so it's just me holding a knife); the only picture of my parents has them both looking the other way and my mom's mouth is open because she's taking to someone. Almost ALL of the pictures are crooked (i.e. tilted) and the ones inside are so dark it appears a flash wasn't used. More pictures than not show people frowning, looking away, or checking their phone. Please note:
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
was contracted to stay until the end of the wedding, but he only has 500 pictures to show for 6 hours, and maybe 10 of them show people checking their phones.

4.) What isn't in the pictures is more heartbreaking than the awful pictures we do have. There are no pictures of the church decorated, the wedding procession, the drive-off, the special touches (i.e. my brooch, my great-grandmother's necklace, the bouquets), or of the back deck at the reception (where most of the guests were). There are almost none of the ceremony generally, the wedding party, or the guests (the church was full yet he managed to make it seem vacant).

5.) I called
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
after we saw the pictures and expressed that we were unhappy. I asked if there were any options in terms of photoshopping or retouching the pictures. He did not return my call. I called him several more times and then emailed him several times, but still no answer. Finally, when I threatened legal action, he sent a short email telling me it's my fault I don't like the pictures and that I would get nothing from him. He told me I should have come in before the wedding (which I tried to do) and that I'm simply too hard to please.

6.) Beyond the large payment we made to
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
, he expects us to pay for each picture individually (which was not made clear when we hired him). I'm not talking about paying for prints--we have to pay for each digital FILE individually to have any rights to our own pictures. So unless we pay him even more money, we won't have any pictures of our wedding at all.

I'm not usually the type to leave bad reviews, but I can't imagine a worse photographer or a less professional way of doing business. Please spare yourself the heartache my husband and I have experienced and hire someone else.

Photographer seemed to be taking a lot of pictures of my daughter. I was told I would have a cd w/ her images on Aug. 14th. Photographer has made arrangements to drop off cd or meet to give me the cd and she does not follow through. She is no longer repling to my emails, texts and is not answering my phone calls.

It went very well - I wasn't too sure how well it would go initially as I don't do the picture thing well. No matter how good the photographer is, they can't make a great picture from someone who freezes when the camera points at them.
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
was amazing though, he was so relaxed and helpful that by the time we got to shot 50 I was starting to smile naturally. We used various backgrounds at the Palladio in
Ellijay Photographers Provider Name Locked
which gave me lots of options to pick from.
