PLEASE choose another photographer for your own good! I first heard of Celebration Photography when attending a LA Bridal Show. They handed out a flyer of questions to ask other photographers to help me choose the right photographer. When decision time came, I asked them all of the questions that were on their flyer and after seeing their digital photo albums, we decided on them. BIG MISTAKE! BEWARE - They are super nice until they receive your final payment. Once the final payment was received the only contact I had with them was initiated by me and they were always incredibly rude and seemed bothered by my questions and follow-up. The issue began when I had no idea who my photographer was until the day of the wedding - turns out they outsource their photographers and don??t necessarily know who your photographer actually will be until the day of an event. The photographer they chose to cover our wedding did not follow the list of photos requested, disappeared for 30 minutes during the reception, lost several key family and bride w/groom pictures, and many of the remaining pictures had lighting issues. Upon notifying Celebration Photography of these issues, not only were they unwilling to take responsibility for the lack of quality but did not apologize for any inconvenience. And recall one of the main reasons I booked them was for their album digital designs? If you decide on this photography studio be very careful and make them spell out exactly what you are looking for in the contract regarding the album design = bait & switch. They showed us one album, we negotiated the price, and now they want more money (a couple hundred more) for the digital design because they forgot to write digital design on the contract. They are saying we only negotiated 20 pages with 20 pictures ?? 1 picture per page? The worst part? We also paid for a CD of all the negatives? 9 months have passed and we still do not have any negatives or an album. The timeline they give you is separate from the contract so they are not bound by it. Another thing to consider, the employees who drafted our contract no longer work there, and despite the fact that their initials are all over our contract w/ modifications ?? their current office manager Shameka (VERY RUDE) will not honor their changes. When I shared my frustration of how we still do not have photos her response was that she has couples from 2008 that still haven??t received their photos. Was that supposed to make me feel better? PLEASE choose someone else! There are so many other talented and more professional photographers out there?

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, Do not hire this company to take pictures for a memorable occassion. You will be so disappointed. Celebrations lack professionalism and service which is so important when coordinating a wedding. We never receive follow-up calls. Our calls are never returned. You fill out information for the photographer and its never even reviewed. Celebrations is the "middle man". You never know who you're photographer will be until at best 3 days before your event. You should always have a face-to-face meeting with your photographer. Please don't let their pricing or whatever else you think is great about this company, persuade you to use them. You will be so disappointed. I'm still waiting for someone to call me, so I can choose my pictures for my wedding album which was 2 months ago. No one should go through this type of heartache after paying for a service. I hope this review was helpful. I wish I had researched better before signing a contract with them.

They did my wedding and boy were we impressed. Talk about talented, my wife never looked so good! They were like flys on the wall at the reception and they really captured the spirit of the celebration.They have great packages and we are definitely going to use them again.
