ZERO stars, actually, not one. They ruined my wedding memories. Long story short: I paid them in full (or they wouldn't have shown up) but had to FIGHT for my pictures. I got my pictures back one year and 3 months later. That is simply unacceptable, and my pictures look NOTHING like the ones in their fancy schmancy office. Alan did nothing but make excuses about why they weren't sent and that he would send them now...only to be send a year later. I filed a claim against them with the BBB but the claim was dropped after BBB did not hear a response from Ron Carroll Photography. I don't think that's fair, either, but what are you going to do? Alan is a lying, manipulative photographer. I just wanted what I paid for and it was a battle. Do not use.

So...I was tricked by the pretty photos in their office too. All of my other wedding vendors were amazing. We contacted Alan (the photographer, aka "the excuse-maker") several times about receiving my photos to no avail. I tried to file

To put it shortly, I think I do not have wedding pictures...
They are so bad, that I do not even want to look at them or show them to everyone:( I am very sad. We paid a lot, and the quality is absolutely horrible. Everyone looks orange, they did not take any efforts to retouch any pictures, even though I asked.
There was no customer service provided whatsoever! I had to call many many times to get someone on the phone, since they would never return my calls. And when I would talk to them there were rude, really - why to bother if I already paid up front? Finally, 1 year after the wedding (I am not kidding!) my album was ready. It's simply horrible...
Do NOT ever go there! Everyone deserves better service for their money.

I had Ron Carroll take my wedding pictures back in September and LOVE them! I had two photographers so they captured everything! They were great to work with and have a great eye. They like to do some unusual shots which some of them turned out really neat but dont be afraid to tell them what YOU want. They want you to be happy with them! If I were to go back the only thing I would have changed was to ask for more pictures of my husband and I looking at the camera. I have a lot of great "capture the moment" pictures but they don't always look right in a frame. Another thing... they have a sense of humor so if you are really conservative I might advise you to go with someone else. They crack jokes and say some witty things to make everyone naturally smile but I could see how some people may be offended. My family is pretty laid back and had a great time with them! I love looking at my wedding pictures and feel like they captured every moment!

Pros: Great Pictures, have back up equipment, organized and fast!

Cons: Expensive

I hired Ron Carrol and his assistant after seeing his impressive array of award wining photos in the office. Do Not be fooled, those drew me in but they are not typical. I had my engagement pictures taken and they were very bad. Both myself and my fiance looked pale,and washed out. The poses looked more like family poses rather than a couple poses. I convinced myself to order one of the pictures to use in the newspaper. After ordering them, I was never contacted again. After 3 months of waiting I began contacting them. I emailed him multiple times and called, but received nothing. Finally I got ahold of him by phone and was told that they were experiencing email difficulties. When I asked about my pictures he said he wasn't sure if they were done or not. I complained that I should have been called when they were ready and he informed me that he thought he had called me. Funny, he can't remember if the pictures were developed or not but he was sure he called me. I cancelled my contract immediately and am now looking for someone who is an actual professional rather than someone who makes excuses for not contacting their clients. There is no reason one photo should take that long to develop and there is no reason why they should have not contacted me.

If I was showing my wedding pictures to a good friend I would be embarrassed! You end up paying thousands of dollars for "one day" that is supposed to be captured with an artistic eye. That was not the case in my situation. When promised that my pictures would be redone, a month goes by and they are saying that they had no record that my album was promised to be reworked. Ron Carroll himself would not even call me back when I wanted to talk to him about how unhappy I was with my pictures. Ron Carroll took the pictures himself and you can see the quality is not the same as the ones you see on display in his office and on his website. Half of the pictures are not even in focus! I cry when I look at my pictures! It has been a year and I still have not got my pictures back. I would not recommend Ron to ANYONE! If you care about quality in your pictures don't waste your money and time with Ron Carroll Photography.

Pros: overpriced pictures

Cons: Ron Carroll

I have never written a review before and I had hoped that my first one would be in favor of someone or something but that is not the case. Ron Carroll Photographers are the worst I have ever seen in my life. I could just cry when I think of my son's wedding pictures and how bad a lot of them were. There were two photographers at the wedding and both were bad; definitely not a good eye for background; they took way too many shots of one pose; all of the pictures were far away; both photographers were taking pictures at the same time so you would be looking at one photographer and the other one would snap a picture and when we saw the proofs it looked like everyone was looking off into la-la land because our eyes were not looking toward the camera but off to the other camera -- absolutely awful.

They took about 25 pictures of an empty reception room; many more pictures than were needed of the wedding cake; and they are way overpriced for their time and for their pictures. We also had to wait almost 8 months before we even received any pictures and then some had to be returned because of the lousy coloring and cropping they did.

Very unsatisfactory work -- my son will be married a year in August 2008 and I still don't have all of my pictures from this place.

A word to the wise -- DO NOT USE THIS STUDIO!!!!!
