"Bad" does not begin to describe our experience with
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
/Avalon Studios. I consider this a public service message: please do not use him for your wedding pictures!!
Blanco 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.)
Blanco 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.)
Blanco 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:
Blanco 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
Blanco 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
Blanco 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.

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
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
which gave me lots of options to pick from.

took our engagement photos over 20 years ago. He has taken our family photo's and my some Sr. Picture. We keep coming back over the years because we feel he is the best. Experience, professionalism and fair prices. Really a steal for what you get. After seeing the result from the cattle call we got from my sons school photographer, we new we had to trust his Yearbook picture to

for a truly great result! Could not be happier as a customer. http://www.gardeiphotography.com/

Every time we have used
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
we have been more than pleased. Each time has been a friendly and pleasant experience for my family, and ultimately for our friends who we recommended them to. I have some family members that are not too
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
to have their pictures taken, yet
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
made it a fun experience and had all of us laughing and smiling. We ended up with a fun time, not a boring portrait session. We were impressed by her creativity, her ability to pose us, and by her fun ability to get candid moments during the shoot as well. We have constantly been impressed by
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
's knowledge and professionalism as well. I have always gotten my photos back in a timely fashion, and have been very happy with the results. The photos are always clear and beautiful, and we get all our digital photos with no watermark. She makes sure we have the ability to print anywhere we want, but we have decided to get the majority of our prints from her because they turn out so much better than grocery photo printing. I have some great family portraits on my walls that she has printed out for us. I end up with way more digital photos than I could ever expect, and I have had a hard time picking my favorites. I recommended her to a friend who was getting married, and I attended. She and her second shooter were always present, and their interactions with the guests were as fun and professional as I have come to expect from
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
. My friend said she had the photos back within two weeks, and everything she posted was just beautiful! I will never use any other photographer, ever! Nor should you!

I emailed
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
through her website and she got back to me the next day with her price list and possible dates. Her prices are quite reasonable and there were several near-term dates to choose from. We chose a date a week out but ended up rescheduling for another week due to rain. On the day of the photo shoot,
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
arrived promptly (even a few minutes early) and took photos in various locations around the park for the next hour. She was very patient with our two year old, who was a difficult subject to shoot! She promised that we would be able to choose our photos within a week and they were ready in two days. We chose 20 digital copies as part of our package and once we were able to narrow down our choices and send them to
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
they were ready for download the next day. We were very pleased with the whole process and would recommend
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
to anyone looking for a family photographer.

The photo shoot went exceptionally well.
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
proved to be quite considerate as a business owner and intuitive as an artist. She was successful at capturing everyone's personalities, and took the time and had the patience for this to happen. I was there, and enjoyed watching Ms.
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
at work. The first date they chose was plagued by inclimate weather. Photographs were taken, but
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
apparently knew she could get better results on another day, on a day with nicer weather, so she set up a second day (at no cost to my daughter's family). Many photographers would have simply considered their commitment complete and their work finished with that first session, but not
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
. She wanted to make sure that everyone was happy with the end results... My son-in-law, who rarely smiles and hates to have his picture taken--even he enjoyed this experience. My granddaughter is also not thrilled when cameras come out--she is not fond of getting her picture taken--but Ms.
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
's personality and her skill at drawing people out of their shell paid off. Each of them said they were glad they did it, and would be willing to do it again (in a year or so, when my granddaughter has grown and changed a bit, so that we have chronicled her growth on an annual basis). I would highly recommend
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
as a photographer. During the shoot, I looked through a book which included other examples of her work. She even had some portraits of some dogs! (And if you can take a great picture of a pet, you can take a great photo of anything.)

arrived exactly on time fully prepared to do the job, we just showed her through the house and she took it from there showing us how professional she is putting her touch into every photo. She took forty pictures and they were all of such high quality we had a hard time trimming them back to the twenty four we needed for the website.
We would highly recommend
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
to anyone,her professionalism, equipment and work ethic are second to none.

's communication was great, she was flexible with scheduling, and she worked with us in choosing a location.
On the day of our scheduled shoot, we had intermittent rain, but she willingly bumped back the appointment by a few hours and even waited out the rain with us under a tarp -- shooting during the sun's occasional appearances -- so that we wouldn't have to reschedule. In addition to her tolerance with the weather, she was extremely patient and upbeat with our nap-deprived, distracted four-year old. And through all that, she managed to incorporate every shot we requested and contributed a lot of additional posed and candid ideas.
After the shoot,
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
started sending us jpgs of shots while she was still in the process of editing, and we had a CD of the complete shoot in a remarkably short amount of time (less than two weeks)! Since we always prefer digital copies to prints, it was wonderful that we were able to buy just the CD. We didn't have to commit to buying anything we didn't want. She does sell prints for those who want them, though.
In addition to
Blanco Photographers Provider Name Locked
being responsive, affordable, creative, accommodating, swift and an all-around pleasure to work with, the pictures came out great! I mean really, really AMAZING.
We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Does beautiful work! You can tell she cares about her customers. She was there every step of the way before the wedding, she provided me a checklist to ensure that I would not miss a single photo that was important to us. She took very romantic photos of me and my husband for our Engagement and Wedding. I would recommend her to anyone as her prices were wonderful and the photos are so wonderful. I could not be happier and I wanted to post a review as result! You wont be sorry. Check out her website for yourself. www.angelacampbellgallery.com
