"Bill Dabovich twas our photographer. He was very professional and managed to get great pictures without interfering with the party. The guests really liked him." He was courteous and not at all invasive. He also managed to capture every guest. He asked me ahead of time where to focus and he listened to my requests & gave me exactly the kinds of pictures I was looking for. He captured several meaningful moments, for which I am really grateful. I was so happy with the pictures I got back. You can't recreate a party so finding the right photographer is so important. I am glad all the pictures from it came out so well! At one point I asked Bill to get a family portrait, too. I have two small kids who were not in the mood to have their picture taken. It was awful trying to get them to smile and not run away! Bill was really patient & great with the kids, but I thought for sure we wouldn't get anything worthwhile from that quick spur of the moment photo shoot. During the melee, he said he got a good one but I didn't really believe him given the situation. I was shocked when I got the photos back and found one of the best family portraits we've ever taken. There were even a few other good ones in that mix, too. I will definitely hire
again.

"My son, while very much an extrovert, is not good at posing for photos. It seems strange that he would be self-conscious, but he is. When
" and
came to my parents' house,
asked me whether I wanted to stay in the room for the shoot or wait elsewhere. I took the gentle hint and waited downstairs. I'm glad I did. I heard lots of spirited conversation going on upstairs and could see lots of flashes going off. I think
could see that my son was a talker, and by engaging him in non-stop conversation she got him to
his self-consciousness. The photos were GORGEOUS! He looked completely at ease and natural. So my extra plug for
this year is that not only does she take superb photos she has a gift for drawing people out to make them look their best. This combination of excellent photographic technique plus her people savvy skills are why I have traveled three thousand miles for the last two years to engage
's services.

and
Nauvoo Photographers Provider Name Locked
were our engagement photo photographers -- from the moment we found them on Thumbtack (a website where we received bids from at least 15 photographers) -- they were different.

Nauvoo Photographers Provider Name Locked
was the only one of the photographers we contacted that was not focused on just the money she will make, but the idea and the quality of work her and
Nauvoo Photographers Provider Name Locked
could provide.

We had 3 themes in our photoshoot. We had a Huckleberry
Nauvoo Photographers Provider Name Locked
theme, a Pleasantville movie theme, and our favorite

&

!

Literally every photo was pristine! We would see both
Nauvoo Photographers Provider Name Locked
and
Nauvoo Photographers Provider Name Locked
roll around the floor or position themselves in an odd angle to get the best shot they could.

It was SOOOO much fun too.

Afterwards they got right to work and we were provided with photos and touch ups -- which by the way the touch ups were even more incredible as they added backgrounds and wonderful contrasts.

I am a person of quality -- and this team has that and so much more!

Trust me -- best of the best!

Once the photo book was purchased at the school (Columbus Charter School Whiteville NC) - I followed the instructions as per the instruction page provided by the school.
I logged into: torememberthis.com and enter my prepaid certificate code and began to create my photo book online. This was very special to me as I am going to visit the county I immigrated from to the USA.
From here the online procedure became more and more difficult to execute. The process of uploading the photo's and inserting them into the photo book took nearly six (6) hours. I then phoned
Nauvoo Photographers Provider Name Locked
Opportuneties and explained the problems. I was told that this regularly happened and that my complaint would be forwarded to their technical department and would be resolved soon.
I logged in again into my account, four (4) hours later. Nothing was resolved and in fact the situation was worse.
After all of this, I now have to find a alternative method of making up a photo album to take with me.

It was not a good experience for us. We had some things get miscommunicatted. The pictures were not delivered in time. The service was also high priced.

Stay clear of
Nauvoo Photographers Provider Name Locked
based out of
Concord, NC!! I booked him in advance for my wedding, which was suppose to be March
2015, after I saw his great work. He may be a good photographer but he is the
most unprofessional business owner I have ever dealt with and I seriously
question his business ethics. Due to several reasons mostly with
Nauvoo Photographers Provider Name Locked
and
distance, my fiancé at the time and I had to call off our wedding. I notified
Nauvoo Photographers Provider Name Locked
in November 2014 of our situation immediately out of respect for his
business to allow our spot to be filled. In December, he agreed to give me a
refund of $1,000.00 since he was almost completely paid for. It is now February
and I have yet to see the refund check or hear from him even with my multiple
attempts to reach out to him via phone calls, emails, website, texts, etc. I
will NEVER deal with him or his company based off of this business experience!
It is very frustrating as a consumer that he would treat me as well as my
mother like this and think it is perfectly okay to do what he continues to do,
not only to me but even others after some of the reviews I have seen. There are
plenty of other wonderful and PROFESSIONAL photographers out there that you
should use instead of

Before you consider using

by
Nauvoo Photographers Provider Name Locked
, this thief and fraud of a photographer, none of the pictures he portrays on his website are the quality of photos he produces!
Contact me and i will show you the garbage photo's he really produces! ...More />
Nauvoo Photographers Provider Name Locked
ruined my wedding on so many levels (which I will gladly give anyone the whole story all the ways he ruined our day) and the bottom line, their is not 1 quality photo i can use, not 1! Their is not one close up photo taken of me and my husband together, I have nothing to hang up in my home or give our parents to display in their homes.We hired 2 photographers from him and have not 1 photo of the 3 hours the men were getting ready.
Nauvoo Photographers Provider Name Locked
did not take 1 photo of me and my mother or bridesmaids getting ready, really! NOTHING, although he did spend 2 hours taking pictures of my shoes!!!!!
Instead of taking a photo of me and my mother walking down the aisle together, he took a photo of us walking behind chairs!
Nauvoo Photographers Provider Name Locked
did not take 1 photo of me meeting my husband at the alter.
Nauvoo Photographers Provider Name Locked
did not take 1 photo of us walking into the reception!!!!
I have not 1 of me and my husband!
Not one of my mother entering the reception!
And the garbage photos he did take are all from the left side on the floor, allll the photos are from the side floor view !
I have better photos taken from my family's cell phones!
this experience has been completely HEARTBREAKING!
I have been crying and sick over this for months,
Nauvoo Photographers Provider Name Locked
ruined the most important day of my life and takes absolutely no responsibility!!!!!!
I received my pictures almost 2 weeks ago and told him my issues and heartbreak and waited for him to contact me to make it right, instead he told me not to email him, send any correspondence to his
Nauvoo Photographers Provider Name Locked
Box which he never checks and I have the emails from him to prove it.
I don't want my money back, I want wedding photos. I waited my whole life for those moments!
In addition to it all, he trekked my dress up and down the stair and hung it all over the house to take pictures, and when i put it on there was then a huge tear in it! It shredded off me within the first hour.
He told me my house was too small to take quality pictures, or any pictures of me and my mother or bridesmaids while at the house, instead we watched him take pictures of my shoes for 2 hours. He took a picture of my keys?? and my refrigerator??? but not of me and my mother !!!
He took a picture of a marshmallow, but NOT of the candy table!
He did not take any pictures of the tables of guests.
He dressed in a T shirt like he was going to a bbq, and got angry when asked about it!!!
Please save yourself the heartbreak and loss of the most important memories of your life! When you are a small girl and you see the wedding pictures displayed in everyones home and can't wait until you walk down the aisle and get to look at that beautiful picture every day with your family... i do not have that.... and i can never get that moment back.

The alarm is a known issue. There have been at least 4 activation calls for the same issue and police dispatched. I have a service call scheduled. Today, I missed the call and called back to the number & option given. The operator for the response team verified my password, said that it appeared that service was calling (i do have a service request in place), and without allowing me to speak, transferred to the service area. I spoke to a manager who said he would review the audio. However, the is the level of service that is constant and, now, expected.

I think I found him in the classifieds. My experience with him was real good. He talks a lot, but he is friendly. We just discussed how we were going to do the photos for the wedding. His website is very complicated. we've had a lot of difficulties in ordering pictures. The pictures were real good. I was just satisfied with the pictures. The quality was good. With regard to responsiveness, he would email back quickly and was there timely. His punctuality was good. I probably would not use him again in the future; just different personalities and his website is so hard.

I have always gotten my pictures back within 3 days. She is wonderful with my children and very professional. I highly recommend her if you are seeking a photographer! She is great at what she does and also doesn't break the bank!
