At the first meeting, this place seemed perfect. Then after signing the contract, we found out that to meet with our photographer before the wedding, we had to pay $400! So on our wedding day, time was too tight with the pictures. It was a fairly annoying process.
So I will be honest to say that the sales people we worked with at Modern Image were not very good and did not always return phone calls or emails. What did make up for this was the photographer we worked with, Michael Litchfield. I have been in many weddings and he was one of the best photographers I have ever met! He was friendly and fun and just made everyone comfortable. And our pictures are absolutely AMAZING! I still can't get over how great the pictures turned out and I will owe it all to Michael.
We went with photographer Jeff Owen (he's been photographing weddings for over 20 years). Our pictures are out of this world!!! I am a big picture person and my husband is very much into photography, so our expectations were high. Jeff beyond delivered! He was such a fun addition to our day...our bridal party loved him! And his work is phenominal!! I tear up each time I look at our photos because he captured the day so perfectly.
We loved our photographer, whom we chose by looking at different portfolios. Her style was exactly what we wanted, and after getting our proofs back, we were so happy with the work she did! We still have to put our album together, but I think there will be a lot of difficult decisions as to which photos to include.
The entire staff is very helpfull and friendly. The photographer was genuinely enthusiastic about each shot he took and the pictures turned out great. The whole day was relaxed and not forced. I recommend Jeff Owen, since that is who we worked with, but all of the photographers are good.
RAVE on John Strauss. He captured the day perfectly and wasn't in your face like some photographers can be. He was always in the background, but always seemed to capture the best pictures. He really has a beautiful eye for photography. Our book ended up being a little expensive, but well worth it. Wonderful!!
What's nice about Modern Images is you get to review the work of several photographers and then chose who you want. You then get to meet with them prior to the wedding to make sure you will be able to work well together. We loved our photogrpaher, he really worked for us on our special day.
