Stress free photography

My husband and I had set a date for June and planned on inviting all of our friends and family. When my grandmother passed away in the fall, she was in so much debt from medical expenses that it no longer seemed fair or financially responsible to keep the guest list at 150... Read More people. In October, we made the call to move the wedding to early January 2015 and cut the guest list to 25. We were worried that our vendors we already booked with wouldn't be able to make the change in their books and that we would lose the deposit. However, despite our wedding date falling immediately after a holiday, Laura offered to be our photographer! We were thrilled, as she had done our engagement shoot and the pictures were completely ethereal. In the months leading up to our wedding, she kept in touch and was very quick to respond to our e-mails. From the beginning, costs were completely transparent and there were no surprises or extra charges. We sat down together a few weeks before the wedding (a meeting WE were 15 minutes late to and she was totally laid back about it) and she took note of every shot my husband and I wanted. She even memorized names of our closest family members! She is an absolute pro. On the day of, Laura was incredibly diligent and ensured that we stayed on schedule. She was flexible, funny, and discreet! Though it was a little chilly, Laura never complained once. We were so grateful to have her with us and we will have wonderful photos with our family that will last forever. She helped make our wedding day the best day of our lives. Thank you, Laura!

May 9th, 2014 Dear Clair Pruett Studio of Springfield, We would like to take the time to express our appreciation for our beautiful engagement and wedding photographs. Clair Pruett was highly recommended by several of our other family members and has become a family... Read More tradition for wedding photography. Clair Pruett assigned us to Susan as a wedding consultant. We could have never organized our ideas for wedding photography without Susan’s assistance throughout the process. Her kind and considerate personality shines through her work. She was always available whenever we had questions about our photography package and recommended Laura, Peter and Bruce to capture this special time in our lives. Laura was flexible when we asked her to meet us at Cabrini College for our engagement session. She allowed us to take her to our favorite places among the campus and was able to place her creative touch on each picture that was taken. We were impressed with so many of her pictures that we even ordered a special canvas photograph to display in our home. Peter was our photographer for our wedding day. He was very professional as he took the time to check in with me a couple days before the wedding to make sure everything was okay. It was also nice to see that he was a family man as he brought his son Justin to assist him on site. His family-like nature gave him the ability to capture the essence of our wedding and now when we look at our photographs they take us back in time as if it were our wedding day all over again. His images will be enjoyed and cherished for a lifetime. After seeing our photographs from our wedding day, we are truly looking forward to seeing the video Bruce creates soon. A hug from us to all of you! Love, Jessica & Daniel Wyatt / Robert & Betsy Westbrook

We got married at the end of June 2015, and our wedding day was wonderful, except for the monsoon of rain we had on that day. We had contracted with Clair Pruett for our engagement session, wedding day photography and video. Our engagement session with Laura was great, our... Read More pictures came out beautiful as did our album. On the day of our wedding, Pete was our photographer, along with a 2nd shooter and assistant. Bruce was our videographer. Because we had 4 people in our team, I was worried that it would be a bit much. However, they were the most non-intrusive team, that some guests even remarked that they didn't feel like they were in our faces all night. They worked hard from morning until night. The rain was so bad, but Pete kept in contact with me the entire week prior to our wedding so we had a game plan due to bad weather. He suggested alternate photo sites outside where we would be covered. He was so helpful and really calmed my nerves. They honestly felt like family to us at our wedding. We felt they always had our best interest in mind, and we felt truly taken care of. Different moments throughout the day, when things became really hectic or difficult because of the weather, they were always there to help calm the stress. I can't stress how above and beyond they all went. All of our wedding proofs are beautiful. I only rated them 4 stars because we are still in the process of creating our album and haven't received the video yet. I cannot wait for the finished products. The owners, Rich and Dasha, have been kind and professional throughout. Our pictures were even featured in Philadelphia Magazine's online Wedding edition. We thank all of them for helping to capture the most special day in our lives! Marlena and Jimmy

Laura was fun to work with and helped us loosen up. Maureen was very professional, memorized...

The only negative about Clair Pruett, was that the photos were supposed to be ready 4-5 weeks after the wedding, but they ended up taking 8 weeks. All else was great, and I highly recommend for wedding photo services.

My wedding was 10/25/14 but I wanted to wait to write a review until I received everything I had contracted for (photo & video only). While we are very happy with the finished products, it took entirely too long for both (especially video) to be finished and there was no... Read More communication whatsoever along the way. Our video took almost 10 months to be finished. When I contacted the office in May I was told it would be ready by the end of the month. I reached out again mid-June and was told there was a "major system failure in our post production department" and that they thought they had reached out to everyone affected (nope!). They reassured me nothing happened to our video but that they would need until the end of July to finish it. At this point I was beyond frustrated because it seemed like they were trying to let it slide, I would have never known if I hadn't kept contacting them. I requested that I be contacted if the end of July deadline would pass. It did, and of course I wasn't contacted. After reaching out again in August, it was finally ready 8/11. The video turned out nice but we did not pick the songs that were on it. I thought that was part of the process, but we were never contacted about that. Our photographs came out beautifully, and Laura was wonderful to work with. I feel bad that the issues with the company itself and the video are affecting the overall rating. Laura also took our engagement photos which came out beautifully as well. I would recommend her to anyone. The engagement session is included in the package but only one photo is included. I didn't think that was spelled out very clearly in the contract. There was no way to choose one photo out of 100+ so we ended up just buying the cd. Overall we are happy with the final product, but I don't know if I would recommend them given the lack of communication and the delays.

We used Clair Pruett for our photos. We had a great time working with Dasha, who was prompt and professional in every regard. But the photographer (Jack Dugan) was a genuine disaster. He didn't take many photos and several of the photos he took weren't good. He tried weird... Read More lightings and decided on bad backgrounds. Worse than that, he also tried to create his own program, which at one point led to me--the groom--standing outside of the hotel for thirty minutes with no one else prior to the wedding. Other lowlights: We don't have photos of the groom entering the ballroom for the ceremony. Jack was taking photos of the bridal retinue somewhere else instead of being at the ceremony. We don't have any pictures of the front portion of our ceremony stage. We don't have a picture from during the ceremony where both the bride and groom are in focus. This one particularly sucks. After the ceremony, when we wanted to take photos with guests, he had disappeared for a while. At one point, while we were doing the cake cutting, he ran to the dance floor to take pictures of some of our guests jumping into each others' arms. We don't have a photo of the cake before we cut it, which is something my bride was asking for when he ran off. Of the photos Jack took, many are simply unusable. After the wedding ceremony, he had us pose in front of the parking lot outside. There is a cheap looking car in the background of many of these shots, and then he was also trying to do some weird things with fairy lights in the photos, I think. None of those photos worked, and that was about twenty minutes of our wedding evening. Jack let many of our guests know that he was a professional and that they didn't need to bother taking photos while he was doing it. Unfortunately, some of them listened to him. Long story short, we recommend Dasha, but we wish we had gotten a better photographer. ps Clair Pruett offers a free 8x10 to anyone who writes a favorable review. Giving tokens for favorable reviews seems to be standard practice in the wedding industry, but I thought it is worth mentioning.

Wish I Would Have Used Someone Else

This is the one thing that I was not happy with. Engagement photos were included in our photo/video package and came out just awful. My husband & I didn't feel like he (Rich) listened to anything we said, made no attempt to take photos that matched our personalities and we felt... Read More rushed (in & out in 30 minutes). We had my future sister-in-law (Aaren Lee Photography) re-take these and came out beautifully. The planning process after the engagement photos went pretty well. We made it known that we did not like Rich's style and so chose a different photographer (Maureen). We went talked about what we wanted and went through a list of photo ideas together so we felt really comfortable that our wedding photos would be better. The photo proofs were emailed to us within a month and I was immediately disappointed with most of them. While the quality was good I was disappointed that every single family photo was taken in the same location of our reception venue: the same set of steps with the ADA lift to the right & table jack to the left. The venue was amazing but every group shot was the same. Another thing was that my brother-in-law was captured in maybe 3 photos total- no pictures with him and no pictures of he and my sister together. I should note that Clair Pruett asked for a detail of family, anyone in the wedding and their significant other…I thought my matron of honor (my sister) and her husband would be photographed. I was wrong. We started the album process by July (wedding was in May). You make a favorites folder on the website to choose the album photos then submit it for the album. After that, their designers need 2 weeks to review our picks then set up a meeting. We submitted our photos for the album on 8/1 and couldn't get an appointment until 8/21 to review the photos together. We were told the album layout would be ready for review within 2-4 weeks. After almost 6 weeks, I wrote them to ask where the album layout was and was told that they were behind (shouldn't someone have reached out to tell me that?) and then miraculously our album layout was emailed to us the same day, 10/1. We met again to review the layout and at that time, we asked if the photos would be touched up, cropped, etc. and were told no, they don't do that. We were so perplexed- no touch ups up at all? Lighting adjustments so that all the photo lighting is the same? Crop out this table jack and ADA lift? After a little bit of an argument they said okay and made us go through each photo that we wanted fixed and what we wanted done to it. Isn't this what photographers/editors are supposed to do? Maybe it's just me. We got our final album back in April, 11 months after our wedding. As for the video, Bruce was great to work with on the day of but it was like pulling teeth to get a status update on the final product. The video quality was great but the edited video didn't contain one song that we submitted- not ONE. At this point (January- 8 months later), I was tired of complaining. There is not one photo that I am excited to blow up and hang on a wall (married almost a year now and still haven't hung any up). I truly wish I would have spent more and gotten better photos to remember my wedding day.

I would not call my experience with Clair Pruett a good one. Several friends of ours recommended this company so we went with it. The positives - we got back 1,200 photos from our wedding day, the editing was clean, classic like we asked for, with so many photos it feels like... Read More the day was well covered. The negatives - getting in touch with the Greenville office was impossible because of their new 'by appointment only' hours, they do not follow up with you during the planning process so it's 100% on you to arrange all details prior to your wedding day (including speaking to the photographer prior to the rehearsal day), the photographer, Dustin, and second shooter didn't direct ANY details while working (people have sunglasses on in family portraits, groom's suit jacket bunched up, bride's hair out of place, second shooter in the shot, etc.), photographer asked me to sign papers while sitting at dinner about paying for extra time and not getting shots we asked for to absolve him of responsibility, photos were not delivered until 8 weeks and 3 days after wedding (they cited technical difficulties on their end). The videographer and photographer acted as though they had never worked with the other type of professional before - a lot of wasted time during photos, in each other's shots, etc. It's 3 months after our wedding and we haven't heard a word on delivery of the video so I can't comment on the quality of that. I could go on but won't. I can see that other people had a fine experience with them; We did not.

Photography and Videography were 2 of the most important details for my wife and I when planning our Wedding. We were willing to spend more with these 2 if it meant better quality. Clair Pruett delivered on the quality and service and they fit nicely within our budget! From... Read More our initial emails with Daurne at the Blue Bell office (even before we signed on the dotted line), we could tell that Clair Pruett Studios was a family business that has grown over the years based on reputation and quality. Daurne was punctual with her responses to any questions we had. After our in-person meeting, our impression of Daurne increased even more. She was extremely easy to work with and made us feel special. We got a great bundle of Videography and Photography. Daurne continued to answer any questions we had even though our Wedding was a year and a half away. We brought our dog with us to our Engagement Session and our photographer, CaraLee, was excellent with Mia. She captured a lot of fun shots for us and had creative ideas. Looking back, we wish we had more than the hour that was included in our package. That was one of the few disappointments of the entire experience. Fast forward to the Wedding Day...we chose to hire a Photojournalist (Dan) in addition to our Photographer (Danielle). We highly recommend this upgrade, as Dan spent the day with the guys as they got ready and arrived at Church. Danielle was with the girls. Dan and Danielle both photographed the ceremony, formal pictures, and reception. They each had very different shots of the same thing, which gave us so many pictures to choose from! They were both very easy to work with and open to making our ideas come to fruition. Dasha was a great assistant. She was extremely nice and always ready to grab something we forgot for a picture or round up people we needed for a shot. Ray was our Videographer and he was awesome. He was there to video the guys arriving at the Church and for the rest of the day. We have only seen our "Wedding Trailer" but we are thrilled with his creativity and vision so far. Picking out what photos we wanted to include in the albums was a long process for us. We were indecisive, but Daurne was understanding and great to work with, offering us advice and ideas. The website is very easy to navigate and allows you to go through pictures when you have time, not a rushed process. We can't wait to see how our albums turn out! If you want a reliable, professional, and friendly studio to work with Clair Pruett should be your choice. Being able to do Videography and Photography at the same studio is a great benefit (saves you a lot of time) and the package they are able to put together is financially competitive. We highly recommend Clair Pruett Studios.
