I went with Blaisdell for my daughter milestones pictures back in 2008 at first they seemed friendly and profesional but once the have your money they forget you I still have not received my pictures. After numerous messages and even going to their studio on several occasions We still have no pictures. It amazes me how these people can go around taking peoples money and not delivering on goods.

CAN'T BELIEVE THIS GUY STILL IN BUSINESS
Went to Blaisdell to have my daughter's milestones pictures taken and what a big mistake it was.....My calls to reschedule my appointment were never returned, pictures that were paid for were never deliver....I would expect better service from a "professional". Even went to their studios and no one came to the door. Don't get fooled if you want pictures go to Penny's or Sears...Every time I think of my daughter's pictures I get very upset. I trusted them with something very important to us and now our daughter will never have it.

Cons: Pics never deliver.....

And all this time I thought it was just me...Got married in September 2004 - received my completed wedding album in April 2006. In the span of that time there were several unreturned phone calls and emails, they lost checks that I had given to them IN PERSON, I was charged twice for an order, etc. I hadn't heard from them in so long that at one point I thought they had skipped town. We finally had to resort to getting an attorney. I made sure to file complaints with the BBB, CT Department of Consumer Protection and the CT Professional Photographers Association. I also took the opportunity to tell the story to anybody who would listen in the hopes word would get around.

Just to confirm, this place is:
1) overpriced
2) unprofessional & rude
3) slow

Steve is a total salesman. They take decent pictures, but there is so many that you get lost. The album ended up "decent", not what you expect for the price. It wasn't what we saw, or what we were promised. The first version could have been done by an art student, I was absolutely livid. We saw an identical album setup with another vendor for 1/2 the price after we had already signed, and boy did we regret it. It took 3 yrs to get our album, people had died, we had two kids by then, I mean come on! But the experience in dealing with them wouldn't be worth it even if it was free, never mind having to pay their price. We didn't bother to take our 2nd child there for the photo layout because it wasn't worth the aggravation. You can only break so many promises and ignore people so long. I hope they go out of business soon so nobody else has to deal with them. Make sure to report to BBB as well.

DON'T PAY THEM MONEY UP FRONT !!!

Horrible!!!!!
We hired them to take the panel photos (3,6,9,12 month) of our son. We have not received a call to do the 9 month. I'm tired of leaving messages. We paid a small fee for all the sittings, and did receive pictures around Christmas. But haven't heard anything since then. I would not recommend. Unprofessional.

I had my sons first stages photos taking by Steve and his wife. Now that all his photos have been done i haven't received a phone call to pick them up and they haven't returned my phone calls either after leaving numerous messages and stating i will take legal action i have not heard anything back still. Its amazing how they can deceive you into believing their something their not. They talk a good sales talk but can't back up what they clam they are. They have no problem calling you back to confirm your appointment with them but when it comes to getting your photos they forget to call or as it seems they may not even care.

Blaisdell Photography is the worst when it comes to pictures for any occasion. Steve is the biggest cheeseball in the world! He is the most annoying salesman you'll ever come in contact with. Had them do our wedding. He and his wife are not photographers. They take about 1500 pictures and you have to sort through their mess to find good ones. And it's amazing, for anyone to take 1500 photos you'd think at least 10% or so would be good. I think there was one good photo we had, and that was us waving goodbye to them at the end of the wedding.

Baby portrait package.... great deal! However, other prices are outrageous! The Blaisedell's work is outstanding, however, so if you have the money... it's worth it for your child's first year (you'll never get the opportunity for that child again!) Had no problem contacting them, however, they did not contact us when the photos were ready for p/up.

This photographer was recommended by a venue. They were friendly at the wedding and took tons of pictures. Actually more than enough. After the wedding it was like they disappeared. No return phone calls after SEVERAL messages left. Finally received a cd to look at proofs after a year. After we picked the pictures we wanted in our album another two years past...two more years of ignored phone calls. After a call to our attorney the album was suddenly finished! Isn't that amazing. VERY overpriced! For this much money I expected top notch service! Not to be ignored and given the run around. Poor service, expensive, bad deal. Avoid!

Three years ago my wife and I contracted Blaisdell to do our wedding. Their work is amazing and although their pricing is astronomical we decided it was money well spent. Our problems started when they were late to our wedding. Then they forgot our engagement picture for our family to sign. They went back and got it and it was framed wrong (a totally ugly frame). They messed up a couple other frame orders also. The icing on the cake was 3 years later I just received our wedding album. This was after (no exaggeration) about 50 - 100 calls between myself and my wife to their business. Maybe two in that span of time got returned. They were extremely apologetic toward the end, but come on . . . 3 YEARS! Their work is great, and if you can wait years and have the patience then go ahead and use them. But from my experience, I would not recommend them to anyone and it is really unfortunate.

My sister used them over two years ago and she still has not gotten her album. They don't return phone calls most of the time, and when they are returned, they give excuse upon excuse as to why they haven't gotten their album. They have 8 BBB reports against them in the past year, five of which are for not delivering goods as promised. They are very nice when you meet them so it can be tempting to trust them but DON'T DO IT. They will take your money and run.

The Blaisdells do take some very amazing pictures- however, they offer this "great deal" on a baby package and don't tell you anything about pricing until you are there for 2nd visit on it- and they are astronomical in price!! Part of the requirements of this package are kind of unfair- they want to take the 12 month photos, for example, as SOON as the baby starts walking, which happened to be at 9.5 months for us. We declined to continue the package, for the pricing they offer (outrageous) and because of their age limitations.
