We hired Amanda Duffy in June 2016 for our Wedding. After seeing their photos and her online portfolio both online on the website and facebook page we were confident she could deliver the types of images we were expecting from our wedding day. We were sadly mistaken. The day of, Amanda arrived right on time with an additional photographer, Georgio. I really didn't do any research into what poses we needed to do, because I figured the photographer would direct us. Not the case. As the day and night went on, we had no issues with Amanda or Georgio. I kind of lost track of them with all the activities of the day. Near the end, Amanda asked us to go outside and record a testimonial, which I thought was weird because I hadn't even seen our photos yet. I reluctantly did and now I see why she does that BEFORE she sends you the actual images. When we recieved our photos after the wedding, we found that Amanda Duffy put her logo/watermark on each photo, "Photography by Amanda Duffy" even though she was providing us files and we were the ones making prints. We asked her to remove the "watermark". She obliged but tried to make us feel awful about even asking. Most of the outdoor photos were blurry, fuzzy and felt like they were "in motion" when you looked at them. There are no clear/crisp edges like you would expect in wedding photos. The tops of people's heads are white/overexposed and blown out from the sun. The angles in which the wedding was shot from is very awkward. My dress is overexposed and blown out. Our photos of bride and groom are very awkward becuase she has us put our heads together like a prom couple. Just ugly. There was little to no direction to compose nice, elegant, modern couple portraits. Our indoor/reception images are okay in quality. A handful of them are mis-focused. The people in the foreground are blurry and the background is in focus. There were no re-takes of those photos. The father/daughter dance photos are not good. Amanda just can't capture that "moment". A lot of moments were missed. Very cold and normal. I addressed these issues with Amanda, the blurry/overexposed/blown out photos. She failed to understand what I was talking about. She kept blaming the quality on the sun (even though shaded also the same), the venue, the time between wedding and ceremony, etc. etc. I asked for a refund, either full or partial and Amanda refuses to give any sort of refund compensation. Amanda DID try to edit the photos to make them look better - but it made them look worse. After multiple emails, she stopped communicating with us and totally ignored us after I asked for an explanation why the photos were blurry. Amanda never once took any personal responsibility for the poor quality of the photos, instead just made excuses of the sun, venue, location, and us for not knowing what kind of poses we wanted. A lot of our photos are over edited to compensate. I do not recommend Amanda Duffy for your wedding day photography. Amanda may be better suited for in-studio photography, family or portrait sessions that can be rescheduled. She will never give you a straight answer in regards to the quality of your photos and why they look the way they do if you have issues and will only respond with "I've done everything that I can to enhance some of these images. There is nothing more that I can do at this point in time." You can view our photos on my Google Album and judge for yourself: https://goo.gl/photos/5UFLwJCuvrznUPSLA
Giorgio & Amanda were great!Reviewed on 1/18/2015 Jenny
We found Giorgio & Amanda shortly after letting our previous photographer go after we received engagement photos we did not like. We booked them very last minute for our wedding, and they were great! We got a great price, and they were so fantastic to work with. Our friends were so impressed with their photography that they booked them for their wedding in October of 2015!
