Photographer warning

I got married in December and used a local studio with locations in Holt and Williamston (I've heard theknot will delete posts with specific references). It's been 7 months, and I have no album, no digital negatives, no wall portrait, nothing. We got married and when we got back from our honeymoon had multiple messages from the studio asking for our balance (which we were told not to pay until we got our proofs and it was only a few hundred dollars.) Since we paid it (and over $3,000 total), they have never contacted us again. I would never recommend these people to anyone. They are horribly unprofessional, and I hope that other brides will steer clear!

    I'm so sorry this happened to you! Please e-mail me and let me know who you used. Also, I may be getting married in the winter so I would appreciate any recommendations you might have with venues and vendors for the winter time. Here is my e-mail: [email protected] Or give me your e-mail address and I can get in touch with you.

    Hi Samjones1, I am very worried about a photographer I booked after reading many poor reviews online.  Could you please e-mail ASAP to let me know who you used?!!!  I greatly appreciate it.  Thank you! [email protected]

    Could you please also email me as well. I want to use vendors from the lansing area and would prefer to avoid the one you mentioned above as well!

    Why do I have a feeling that this was Miller Studios? I"ve heard nightmares about them but their photographers do great work. One of their photogs has recently left them to open her own studio.
