s photos had to be done after the ceremony. They extremely rushed us and caused stress . They didn't review the forms of what shots we wanted at all! We wanted photos and videos of our guest mingling we have absolutely nothing. They took no photos/videos of the ceremony or reception decorations like requested which meant the father of the grooms memorial chair and dedication we have nothing of which is heartbreaking. The video of the reception is just two stationary cameras around the dance floor. We thought the actual videographer was going around taking videos of the guest or asking if they had anything to say to the couples but no, none of that. Not sure why he was even there because we could've just place the two cameras by the dance floor. Nothing we requested from the videographer was done. Why even fill out the forms of what shots we wanted? We have nothing from cocktail hour. The photographer seemed lost and like this was her first time. She didn't direct us at all. We also shot on a bridge over the water and she forgot to get any photos of the bride and groom together which should have been a priority. Then the stupid viewing gallery. Our wedding was 6/18 and we can't see our photos without the watermarks until 10/10 which is utterly ridiculous. They also changed the colors of all of the photos and made them faded and dull. I had a bright blue dresses for the bridesmaids and vibrant purple for the groomsmens and they turned out to look like a light dusty blue and black. I have no close up of my hair, make-up, dress, or flowers, which again I asked for on the forms. Such a waste of money. My husband and I are very disappointed. It completely ruined the wedding we hate looking at the photos and video now. The quality of the iPhone pictures and videos that were taken were better.

I was pretty disappointed in this company. I originally chose Eivans because they had a good price for what I was looking for but I wish I had read the contract more closely. We chose a package that included digital downloads of our photos, no ...
physical copies or a physical photo album. It took 10 weeks after our wedding to receive a link to our photos. And then you can only access watermarked photos for 90 days. After that 90 days you can finally download all of the images. That wait time is pretty ridiculous and doesn’t serve a purpose other than to make the company extra money. During the 90 days you can buy prints only, and the prints are ridiculously over priced.
I was also disappointed with our photographer the day of the wedding. I anticipated that a wedding photographer would help come up with pose ideas and arrange people for group photos. They did neither of those things. Many of our family group photos are awkwardly spaced and in a few peoples faces are covered. Additionally in the edited photo gallery there are several images where mine or my partners eyes are closed. I feel like in the editing process those photos really should have been excluded.
There are better photography companies and individual photographers, go with someone else for your big day.

Working with this company was an absolute nightmare, I was not satisfied with any aspect of working with the company. If you are willing to wait almost 6 months for your wedding photos then this company is for you. Outlined below is a timeline ...
-August 26th assigned photographer.
-9/4/21 wedding date.
-9/5/21 We received an email stating we were expected to get wedding photos back 3 to 5 weeks from our wedding.
-After 6 weeks of waiting I emailed customer service asking where my wedding pictures were. I was notified by customer service it would be 6 to 10 weeks after the wedding.
-10/25 received watermarked gallery
I was not made aware that all the photos would be watermarked and to have them unwatermarked you would either have to order expensive prints or pay $50 per photo to have it digitally released to you.
The gallery for the watermarked photos would be open for 90 days, after 90 days the gallery was expected to close and we would be sent out photos.
-Our Gallery ended and then we were emailed to sign a release and the photos would be given to us within 3-5 business days.
-We signed the release on Monday
-On Saturday 1/29/22 we received an email that our images were ready to download but our images would expire on Sunday 1/30/22. I am lucky I checked my email because the gallery was only available for 48 hours on the weekend and then the images would have disappeared and I would have to pay up to $760 to get them back.
I also waited to post this review until I had all my images downloaded and backed up in case the company would have sabotaged my wedding photos. We received 1,041 photos from our 8 hour time slot and we only liked 371 of the photos. I really hope this informs people before they book with this company.

retty legit, picture quality looks nice, and they seem to offer really affordable packages. And let's face it weddings are expensive and stressful so the idea of killing two birds with one stone is appealing. You call them up and talk to a very nice customer service agent who explains the process, packages, the ability to pick your photographer etc, happily answer all your questions and immediately follow up with you the next day. Now you're thinking "finally found one and can check this off my list." Well since this was my personal experience I'm here to tell you DON"T DO IT!!!!!!! I get it! Finding a quality photographer/videographer with out breaking the bank is hard but after the experience I had I wish I would have just went with the more expensive options and ended up with amazing photos/footage in a timely matter. After deciding to go with the company we were sent options of photographers in our are who's work we could review and decide to choose. We chose a photographer and was told she would be available the day of our wedding so everything was set for over 6 months. A week before our wedding we received an email of who our wedding photographer and videographer would be and neither were people we had chosen. Imagine having someone capture one of the biggest days of your life and you have never never viewed their work and have no clue who they are. Sucks right? But our package was paid off and it was a week before our wedding so we had no choice. They were scheduled to arrive at 2:30p to capture the wedding party getting ready i.e girls with the matching robes/ men with their tuxes but they decided to show up at 4p an hour before my wedding start time and missed all of that. (Literally making it pointless for me to gift the wedding party all of these matching items) But it's my big day so the show must go on. My photographer seemed to be young and very inexperienced. Not catching pivotal moments, weird angles, bad lighting taking forever to set up, and asking us for suggestions on poses and positions. We got very little of what we requested on our initial intake and after receiving my pictures (Married 9/10/21 received photos 10/25/21) I was distraught. I had was so excited about seeing our final product and just couldn't believed what I received. I literally could have done better editing on my phone and there were so many off centered and blurry pics smh needless to say I contacted the company ( before you all ask me to email firstname.lastname@example.org I did) and was sent a basic scripted apology about how I could schedule to speak with a manager about my concerns with a link. Clicked the link and guess when I can speak with someone? FEBRUARY!!!! For an issue that happened in September lol And don't let me forget to mention the fact that after reviewing your gallery you still have to spend hundreds to be able to download or purchase any of your pics. That $300 credit is a joke! I still haven't received my video since they said that could take up to 6 months *eyeroll* and honestly not even looking forward to it at this point. The moral of this story is: JUST DON'T!

I got married September 28, 2013! Not sure why it took me this long to write a review. But here it goes:
I love pictures, I think they are one of the most important aspects of any celebration. A picture can take you back in time and allow you ...
to remember that day like it was yesterday. For that reason I was looking for a company that took their job seriously and was affordable.
I came across Eivans while searching on this website www.theknot.com and gave it a shot. I saw the price and thought it was too good to be true. We scheduled a consultation and got lucky to have Steve as the consultant and as our photographer. He was awesome, so easy to work with and went along with anything I asked of him. He was so helpful and friendly. He was yes to make sure the day went smoothly. They prices were reasonable, compared to other companies. I felt that we got a lot for our money. The one thing I wish I would had done however was buy the copy rights to the pictures before the wedding. As they become extremely expensive after the wedding.
After almost three years I called Evian's to see if the price for the pictures' copy rights had gone down, unfortunately it was the same price. I asked my husband if the pictures were worth it, which to be honest they are, but the price was out of our budget. I called again and asked if something could be done, they were able to bring the price down to something more comfortable. Though ideally it's not what I wanted to pay, I'm thankful they worked with me and lowered the price.
I went ahead and bought the copyrights to my pictures and I don't regret it one bit! I do love the pictures and the work that Steve did! I know I will have these memories to cherish for years to come!
I recommend Evian's Photography in a heartbeat.

Read the contract! We were going to go with Eivan's for our photos and video until we read the contract. The experience from the beginning was a bit off. In the initial phone consultation, the girl spoke so fast and it seemed like she just want...
ed me off the phone to sign the contract. Then they want a $250 deposit before ever seeing the contract, which turned us off. It was refundable, but still, we don't get to read the contract before putting money down? And then when you get the contract, it's only good for 24 hours, so you can't shop around. Then in the contract, it states several times that they are not responsible for lost pictures, or pictures not taken. I'm sorry, but if the photographer erases all of the pictures, then he/she IS responsible. It also states that photographer has priority over the guests for pictures and will do whatever is needed, i.e. push guests out of the way or just not take the picture at all, which of course they are not responsible for. They are also not responsible for taking any pictures which you want them to take. If you need to cancel the event, then you have to pay the full amount of the contract PLUS 50%. Seriously? They claim it's not a penalty, it's for damages. Finally according to the contract, you are not allowed to write any negative reviews. If you do, they will charge you for every day the negative review is posted. It is not enforceable, but you would still have to fight it and this is why you can't find many, if any, negative reviews about their service. What are they hiding if you can't leave a negative review? Buyer beware!

Although we loved our personal photographer and videographer, working with this company was a nightmare. We were going back and forth with them for about 6 months after our wedding because there were missing pictures from our wedding. Some were...

Some of the shots they took were so amazing, we had about another 5 couples book with them, just based on the two or three photos they saw of us on our wedding day. Not to mention, the prices and their customer service is great. Someone always gets back to me immediately if I call with any questions, and we were shocked that the pricing for photos and videos were not outrageous compared to several other companies.

Last year, my husband, (then fiancé at the time), and I were on the search to find a wedding photographer and videographer. Since we were on a tight budget, we sought out a company that can offer quality photo and video within an affordable pri...
ce point. After several months of research, we came across Eivan's. We found them through a magazine advertisement on The Knot Chicago for a 10 hour Photo and Video package starting at $1299.00. Knowing this info, we were intrigued and decided to do more research on their work and what they can offer us.
At first, we were skeptical with the low cost of the package. Many photographers charge thousands of dollars (I've seen photography pricing range from ($3,000 to 5,000) for photography only! And that's just separate from your additional video expenses!!! So obviously when we learned that they would provide both photo and video for a fraction of their cost, we then decided to check out their portfolio on their website to view their work. On their website, they had sample video highlights from prior weddings (which were shot on location) off their blog page and I'll have to say after viewing a few, they were excellent. It's no wonder they claim to hold the title of being professional storytellers of weddings!
Their video reel highlights had professional grade cinematic quality to them. It was almost like watching a Hollywood movie except the stars are you and your husband!!! You even get the chance to add in your own special music to your wedding video so that was an added bonus. Using their downloadable link, you transfer your MP4 music and download it to their web page. Having the ability to add your favorite song to your wedding video really offers that personal touch to signify your special day. We loved their work so much that after looking at a few portfolios, my husband and I immediately booked an appointment with Elaine over in sales to make sure our date was available (which it was ). YaaY!!! Flash forward to 6 months post wedding... As I look back at our wedding album and DVD, I never regret choosing Eivan's.
Once you've booked with Eivan's, there are forms they will periodically send you up until your big day. These forms are for you and your spouse to fill out detailing exactly what moments you want documented in order of priority. From there, they build a timeline for you so that every shot from beginning to end gets covered and nothing gets missed. On the week of your wedding, your photographer and videographer contact you over the phone to go over logistics and final details. They go over your ceremony and reception time line one last time to make sure your day runs smoothly and you get the pictures you want. I love that they have all this organized down to a science which tells me that they A.) Know what they're doing, B.) they've done it for a long time, and C.) they make sure that no detail goes missed as long as you specify what you want documented.
Customer service was awesome and their customer relations handled any questions I had as quickly and prompt as possible. Sam was a pleasure to work with and the staff were kind and attentive to what my husband and I were looking for when it comes to professional wedding video and photography. Thank you Eivans for helping us create and document wonderful memories we will cherish for years to come.

The sales tactics are high pressure: they would only send a contract after making a $2...
50 deposit and the contract must be signed within 24hrs. I asked for contract amendments since the contract listed the videography service for $1299 instead of the $999 deal listed on the website. I was told there is a $300 fee that is added to every package. So I asked for the contract to clearly show this fee was added to the $999 package, not a problem.
I asked for basic consumer protections added to the contract: a statement of guarantee of turnaround time and the company cancellation and refund polices added to the contract. They were very polite about it, but it is clear that they are looking for people that just sign a contract without looking at the terms. They immediately refunded my deposit and wished me a great day.

I wish sometimes he would have had me adjust my stance, but we were left with 2400 photos and love so many of them! I recommend them for any couple on a budget who is willing to put in the little effort to communicate well and often. Ensure you track when they are supposed to contact you and know that you may have to travel to their offices to pick up your pictures. It's a hike, but you're not spending $4000 on the photographic artist that would do it all for you.

bigger packages, if not the biggest. We had a wedding of 400 people and a bridal party of over 30 people so we did need a good number of photographers and videographers.
We used Eivan's for both our photography and videography for our wedding. They were not only on time, but overstaffed! They arrived cheerful in the morning and excited to start. They started setting up immediately after Mike (our head photographer) greeted me and had many kind words to say. Just an overall great start. THEY CAPTURED EVERYTHING we requested. I had prepared a list which they went above and beyond on! (you do have to tell them what you want to capture so if they miss it, you don't blame any photographer you choose for not reading your mind) :) The photographers and videographer went on our party bus with us to capture moments on there as well as easily got off stops together. We have AWESOME street footage downtown and captured one of the best parts of the wedding. They continued on throughout the night with us just as requested.
We received our photos immediately, I want to say one week. Then our video in less than the 3 months promised in our contract. We had some edits, but to be honest not too many however the edits were also prompt and within their timeline. The work itself was what we were looking for and the price was very very generous given industry standard pricing for the quality of work and package we received from Eivan's.
