Paul Blaser from Balser Photography steals from his customers and performs sub-par work.
Paul Blaser did our wedding photography in September of 2011. It has been a year and a half since our wedding and we have not received our pre-paid album and had to wait over a year to receive the rest of what was in our contract. When we received a couple of prints, the quality were awful and we had to reorder from another vendor. Through a year of communication, Paul has continuously made excuses and played to our generousity and pity to delay sending our products (and I repeat-they were already paid for).
His excuse for not replying to our voice messages and emails was that he was never in his studio to receive them. As a consolation, he gave us his personal cell phone number..which he never answered. When we did have a chance to speak to him, his excuse was that he had heart surgery and complained about the toll this has taken on his business. After his pleas of giving him another chance (in his words: to save his business) we gave him THREE more changes and still have not received the album. We checked his background and found out that he has three outstanding small-claims judgments against him dating back to 2007 and has a dozen tax liens dating back from 2010 . This tells us that whether he had a heart condition or not, his tendency to steal from his customers and his financial troubles dates back to several years prior to our wedding.
In hindsight-we really should have done a background check before investing so much money into him.
Paul Blaser is a liar, a poor businessman, a sub-par photographer and cannot be trusted.
