It's been 6 month from our wedding and we haven't received our CD of photos and videos . We were promised to get our photos and videos by 6 weeks. We tried to call and email them several times, but now, no one answers our calls or emails.
I was soooooo excited when we found money in our budget for a videographer! From looking at Elegance's reviews and work, they looked like a great provider. However, the communication has been horrible! The time line and layout for my wedding NEVER made it to the videographer who showed up to my wedding. The videographer was sweet and seemed to care that allooks of the "important" things were shot! (No complaints at all with the professionalism of the gentleman who showed up to shoot the wedding!) My contract stated "COMPLETION SCHEDULE: Digital post production for photography, online web gallery and CD/DVD creation takes between 6-10 weeks. Video editing and DVD authoring takes up to 8 weeks." At 8 weeks a relieved a generic email stating that the videodorant would require an additional 2 weeks proceasing time and that if I had not already, I should submit a song list. This was the first time a song list was requested and the first communication I had received since the wedding. It has now been 16 weeks since my wedding and I still do not have my wedding video or conformation that the video has been sent. I am aware that there was a legitimate, unexpected, heartbreaking reason my video has been delayed, however the stories I've been told are not adding up. If the quality control person has been out of the office, why is the editor not submitting the video to quality control until months after the 8 week deadline? Why has no resolution been offered for breach of contract? If my video should been in the mail three days ago, according to your most recent email, why don't I have a tracking number? I have made it VERY clear that all I want is clear and honest communication, that delay could be forgiven due to the circumstances beyond your control, however they have failed to keep me updated on where things are in the process and do not follow through with plans THEY have set for THEMSELVES!
I am the MOB. We interviewed many photographers. There was a range of cost and services. We were a bit different because my daughter and her fiance were getting married on a Friday (only about 25 people attending) and having the reception on the following Saturday (with about 100 people attending). We chose Elegance Photography and Video because Marcus Breaux said they'd be flexible and work with us. The most important part of their job was to get great pictures and they did! The pictures are fabulous. The bride and groom love them! I love them too. The photographer (Jose) captured the happiness we all felt! So they get 5 STARS! Now a review of the process: My daughter and her fiance (now husband) met with the photographer, Jose, at the venue to go over where pictures could be taken and to get to know each other. Jose was FANTASTIC! He is professional and personable. He made it seem like he was enjoying himself. He even called on his way to find out if there was anything we needed and had forgotten. He spent 2 hours photographing the wedding and the bride and groom (family and friends too). He returned the next day and did a photo shoot outside with the bride and groom and their new puppy in the Texas bluebonnets, did some extra pics on the golf course with the bride and groom and some golf clubs, and then did the reception from beginning to end. He gets an "A+++++" from us! My only complaint was the company's communication. Many times, I sent multiple emails to get a response from Elegance. After the wedding weekend, I inquired about the time until we would receive the pictures digitally. I was finally told "6 to 10 weeks per the agreement I signed". I had never received (nor signed) that agreement. I thought I had been told "4 to 6 weeks". When I questioned this, Natalie Breaux got back to me quickly and agreed I had not received said agreement and promised to get the pictures to us before the 10 weeks. She kept that promise; we got the pics about 6 weeks after the wedding weekend. She was professional and also explained why communication had been lacking at times. I told her that given all the positives that problem wasn't important to us. Elegance Photography and Video was a pleasure to work with. They were very affordable. The value they provided was more than what we paid! When you feel that way, you know it's all good!
Great Value!Reviewed on 12/08/2015 Kelli N
Cody did a great job with the raw footage for our wedding videography. We weren't too picky about it, really just wanted to have some video recording of it, so we did not ask for editing. I can't comment if a wedding video with all the works is what you're looking for, but if you just want a video and audio recording of your ceremony and speeches (what we did) you really can't find someone better for the excellent price than Cody! He was also very quick with getting the video back to us after our wedding.
Cody is THE BEST!Reviewed on 11/12/2015 Kristen B
We hired Cody Davis as our wedding videographer in September 2015 and were so pleased with his work. Cody is professional, accommodating, easy to work with and extremely talented. My husband and I were so pleased with our video and watch if often. Cody really captured our special day perfectly and we would highly recommend him for your special event!
Wedding Photography ReviewReviewed on 7/21/2015 Jenni M
Cody and his his staff did an awesome job capturing our wedding. The photographer arrived a half and hour before the festivities and was able to capture all the wonderful festivities on camera and was a pleasure to work with. Also we found his prices to be very affordable compared to other photographers, would definitely recommend.
Great price + tons of photos!Reviewed on 6/04/2015 Amelia P
Cody is a great photographer at a great price. So many wedding photographers think they can charge way too much just because it's a wedding. Cody's prices are reasonable, and he does good work. He took so many pictures at our wedding, you would never believe he was the only photographer. I'm so grateful to him for capturing so many moments I was too busy to see for myself. My sister has decided to use him for her wedding this year too! Thanks, Cody!
great photography packagesReviewed on 4/06/2015 Lynne R
When our previously booked photographer backed out on us 3 weeks before our wedding I was not sure I would be able to find someone again! However, Cody was available and did an excellent job of shooting our wedding without breaking our budget!
Great Job!Reviewed on 1/08/2015
Cody did a great job with our pictures. We're very happy with his work. He even went out of his way to help us with our bad weather plans when it turned out it might rain. I would totally recommend him.
Budget Friendly & Great QualityReviewed on 10/22/2014 Haleigh D
We hired Cody as our wedding videographer. It was really important for us to hire a videographer that did high quality work, but was within our budget. Upon our first meeting with Cody it was really reassuring to me that he was very detailed and knowledgeable in what he is doing. It was amazing to have such a great video with lots of spontaneity. The video had different angles and interviews with people involved in the wedding. Cody did an amazing job of capturing every moment and putting it into one video. We were very pleased with the final product. Another great aspect of the process is that we were able to co-direct the editing. We were able to pick out the music and the font color. It was really fun for us revisiting the wedding day once again. It was great because we got to preview ahead of time before the video was complete. We were able to work with Cody and let him know what we wanted in there, like adding music to a certain spot and what songs we wanted to put in what order. It was great to have that kind of control. We were very excited to see the finished product. It was well worth it and great.
Quality VideographyReviewed on 6/03/2014
Cody and his team did a phenomenal job capturing our wedding day! We were extremely pleased with the professional and quality work he provides. His skill and attention to detail speaks for itself, and we are grateful he was able to make our special day last. We absolutely loved being able to put input into the editing of our wedding video, because the final product was exactly what we wanted. Cody has great patience and worked his magic to deliver an amazing wedding video. Thanks Cody, you do awesome work! -Maria and Nikolas
Videographer I had at my wedding in Round Rock, Texas.Reviewed on 2/19/2014 Faviola h
Hello. I got Elegance photography to do my wedding video on 12/28/2013 my wedding day. Cody is awesome & a professional. I saw Cody on the knot.com & I liked his material & then we set up an appointment to meet at his house. He is professional & he gives you receipts, he calls or emails you, he is a great communicator. & I felt Comfortable with him. Cody also went to my ceremony rehersal(for an extra fee) but it was worth it. I just got my video final product last week. & once I saw the DVD, it was absolutely specatular with the intro which I absolutely loved & accompanying music was the best picked music. & the whole thing with the 2 cameras was a great investment. Definltely get a professional like Cody, it is worth it. Also Cody communicated with us via email about some edit details & that was perfect to let us know what was going on. I loved my video. Faviola :-) Super happy with my video 100%
The Jackson/Ervin WeddingReviewed on 11/23/2013 Eninja E
Cody did a wonderful job as our wedding photographer, we were very rushed due to bad weather causing things to run late, but Cody still got great shots and was patient with us. The only thing I wished were different are the prices for his photo books, His overall photography service price is great, but the cost of the photo album a little expensive for me. I will definitely be using Cody again and recommend Elegance photography, especially if your looking for quality at a great price.
Mrs. Lexi TelloReviewed on 9/11/2013
I thought the pictures turned out pretty good.Some where fuzzy but I think that was because people were moving for the candid shots. We would have done more pictures outside if it weren't 103 out that day
Bridal portriatsReviewed on 8/12/2013 Katie H
I really enjoyed working with Cody on my bridal portriats. He was very professional and is a wonderful artist. Every picture he took took came out beautiful. My wedding isn't for a few more months and I am so excited to show my fiancé all of my pictures. You get the quality of a photographer that charges upwards of $2000-$3000 with a price that is very affordable. I will definitely recommend Elegance Photography to all my family and friends. And I will definitely be using them again.
Big WinnerReviewed on 7/22/2013
Cody did both our engagement photos as well as my bridal portraits. We were fortunate enough to win the photography sessions with him through a raffle at a bridal event so they were an incredible value to us with all the costs that go into planning a wedding! The photos themselves came out amazing. He is very thoughtful and meticulous with each photograph he takes. He really works to ensure the best light composition possible to bring out his subjects' best features. All my family lives in another state so it was truly a blessing to be able to send them these beautiful photos that allowed them to feel a part of everything.
Wedding 6.29.13Reviewed on 7/17/2013 Tess S
I thought the photos that Cody took were great. He was very professional and friendly and helped us get the best photos including photos of all the guests. I would recommend him to anyone needing photography, especially for their wedding.

Cody Davis Wedding Photographer is awesome. He is personable, professional and understands what a Bride and Groom want for their very special occasion. I think his services are extremely affordable while displaying quality. I highly recommend Cody Davis.
Cody was great!Reviewed on 5/14/2013 Ryan R
We are so glad we chose Elegance Photography and Video to do our wedding. We thought their photography was great. They were able to capture the color and personality of our wedding. Their photography was amazing and we had our photos within a short time. We highly recommend him!
Great quality and serviceReviewed on 4/20/2013 Celia M
We interviewed several videographers and decided to go with Cody from Elegance Photography and Video. Cody was very well prepared, met with us over the phone, in person, and at the rehearsal in order to know exactly what we wanted. On our wedding day, he arrived on time and with an assistant (an unexpected bonus!) and was very energetic, polite, and aware of all the little details at our 12 hour long wedding. He adapted to both the Catholic and Hindu ceremonies very easily and provided us with a high quality memory of our wedding day. His turnaround time was quicker than all of the other videographers we interviewed - we had the raw footage within a week and the DVDs within 2 weeks. While he edited the video, he shared some short videos with us online to seek our feedback to ensure we got exactly the style we wanted. We had some technical difficulties with one of the DVDs (which was beyond Cody's control) and he attended to our request very promptly, giving us another copy of the video. Overall, we had a great experience with his service and highly recommend him as a videographer for your big day!
Great Value, Interesting PhotographerReviewed on 3/27/2013 Megan P
Our correspondence with Cody, the photographer, leading up to the big day was thorough, as he went above and beyond with ideas and prepping us as best he could. Going as far as to ask what kind of cut we would prefer on the end of the ribbon that would be tied in a bow on the hanger that he provided to take pictures of the dress! Cody did tons of prep work and made sure to keep communication before and after the wedding, never leaving us out of the loop. Cody will come prepared with many ideas but in order to keep things moving as fast as possible it would be best to pick out some of the many ideas he will send you before the wedding as well as some of your own. There were times that we were not sure what direction he was trying to go with some of the pictures, but in the end they came out great! In the end of the day he took great picture for a ELEGANT price;)
Successful Rehearsal DinnerReviewed on 2/25/2013 Terri M
We loved Cody’s work! He captured the fun and life of our rehearsal dinner. It was indoors at night, but came out very well. He filmed the same scenes with separate cameras, giving us both photography and video. We did not even think that this could be done well. We were able to download full length video previews and direct him in the editing process to get exactly what we wanted. He even did specialty work in the editing and created a custom menu background. Cody is an excellent videographer and photographer. The cost was very reasonable. We definitely recommend him!
