When I got all of my photos I literally cried with disappointment. I do not recommend going with Elite Studios if you have specific photos you would like to have or if you want photos of anyone at your wedding other than yourself. They advertise two photographers, I would say less than 10% of the photographs are taken by the second photographer. Also, they only do solemn photographs, I requested multiple times to just be able to smile and have joyous pictures, they wanted nothing to do with it, to the point that I was scolded for smiling. I have more serious portraits of me staring at the floor or the ceiling it’s unbelievable. I asked Tina if we could take photographs of the front of my dress and she told me “No, you look fat from the front.” Prior to the wedding Tina said to make a list of the photos I wanted. Her response to the email was very argumentative. On the day of the wedding she did not have the list with her and did not want to go and get it out of her car which was literally right outside of the chapel. I have zero pictures of the bridesmaids or bride getting ready; meaning no pictures of my mom tying up my dress or my sister helping with my necklace, no pictures of me and my friends having fun or praying for my marriage with our pastor. I have no pictures of my groom or groomsmen getting ready, and the only pictures that were taken of my wedding guest were ones I had to find the photographer for and ask them to take the picture. When I came home from my honeymoon she had already sent the included wedding album. There is not one picture of my bridesmaids or groomsmen in my book. Needless to say I am so thankful for all my friends and family that have helped, I have had to rely more on photos taken by my guest on their cell phone to make my photo album than on my professional photos. I would encourage you not to go with this company, pick a company that matches your personality and that is not going to disappoint on such an important day.
If your looking for a wedding photographer book them!! Tina and Vaughn go above and beyond for their brides!! I had a lot of my wedding photos the NEXT DAY which never happens!! They use top of the line equipment and produce beautiful pictures! They made me feel really comfortable during my shoot and gave me good direction! They will be my photographer for the rest of my life. I wouldn't choose anyone else to capture my special moment with and you shouldn't either!
Wonderful!Reviewed on 11/11/2015
They were both very professional and responsive to any questions.I think that for what was included the price was very reasonable. They were also quick to get our pictures back after both our engagement session and wedding. It was nice that the engagement session was included in the price because we got to work with them before the wedding day. They are so nice, relaxed and make it fun. Our pictures came out lovely and I can't wait to look at them for years to come!
Tina and Vaughn hands down are THE BEST photoghers ever. They are beyond five stars capturing every amazing moment from the engagement session, bridal session, to the wedding and reception. Our wedding album is PHENOMENAL. The communication was excellent along with the PUNCTUAL turn around receiving our photos. Each session was fun and they both had great personalities! It was truly an honor and pleasure to work with this dynamic duo. They made all my dreams come true capturing some of the most memorable moments of my life. They were God sent.
Tina and Vaughn were the most professional and all around best photographers I have ever come into contact with. Both of them are incredibly sweet and talented. They shot my bridal and wedding photos and I couldn't be more pleased! All of my family and friends were raving about how wonderful they were on the wedding day and how amazing the photos came out. they captured very special moments during all parts of the wedding and now I get to cherish those for the rest of my life. Every photo depicts a piece of the wedding and reception that brings me back to the day! These two are definitely the way to go!! Fantastic!!
Tina and Vaughn provided the best service and photographs ever. It was more than I could have wished for. The sessions were fun and the photos turned out beautifully and they were such a good value. I refused to pay thousands for a photographer and Elite Studios was the answer. We did an engagement session at several locations many months before my wedding. Then Tina photographed before, during and after the wedding. I ended up with hundreds of pics on a CD and a gorgeous wedding album, too. You won't be disappointed in Elite Studios. Thank you Tina and Vaughn!
I made a simple request to have them photograph our engagement and wedding but to do photos of us with our family instead of those of myself and the groom alone. This is because we want a family friend to do these photos after the wedding (because they are not available the day of), for sentimental reasons. I would understand someone saying that they don't do this, but I received the rudest email response saying that those are the "most important" photos, among other things. I would argue that our actual WEDDING photos are the most important to us. Atrocious customer service. This is the first vendor to make me feel like crying. I would never do business with people like this. "Elite" is an appropriate description for their attitude.
Happy Mother of the bride!!Reviewed on 3/23/2015
As the mother of the bride, I cannot stop looking at my daughter's wedding photo album! Every photo is so good and I just cannot believe how Tina and Vaughn managed to catch so many special moments of that night on camera!! Moments that I didn't even know were going on at the time but moments that warm my heart each and every time I look at the album. I highly recommend Elite Studios if you want photographers that are true professionals that go out of there way to capture all the special moments that you will remember every time you look at your album!!
Wonderful!!!Reviewed on 1/24/2015
Tina and Vaughn are amazing! We got wonderful pictures and are completely happy. They actually take the time to get to know you and make your sessions feel personal. It was wonderful to work with people that listen to what you want but also offer their professional opinion. I would highly recommend them to anyone!
Amazing!!Reviewed on 12/20/2014 Monica D

She got amazing shots throughout the whole event and the turn around was under two weeks with wonderful memories:) always easy to get in touch with too
Elite StudiosReviewed on 10/28/2014 Danielle G
I absolutely loved our engagement session. Both photographers were so helpful. They work well together and came prepared and even brought props! What an incredible team! My fiance and I were nervous at first but the photo shoot ended up being so much fun! We got the pictures back literally within a week and I, my fiance and our family & friends absolutely love them. We got all the edited photographs on a flash drive to keep. Their quality is amazing! Thank you so much, Elite Studios. We cannot wait to have our pictures taken by you on our big day! :) D&R
"Simply the Best"Reviewed on 10/10/2014 Dasa V
The most professional photographers yet. My bridal session was wonderful! I felt pampered, special and Elite Studios made me feel like a movie star! It is very important for a woman to feel good about herself, especially on the big day and especially in front of a camera. Both T & V are aware of that and treat everyone with professionalism, understanding and a great amount of patience. I had specific images in mind and T & V ensured we got them. The end result was even better than I invisioned! I'd highly recommend Elite Studios. They will make you feel special, beautiful and the memories they capture truly reflect the mood of the happiest day in your life.
Amazing above and beyond work!Reviewed on 10/05/2014
My wedding was September 6th 2014. I booked with Elite Studios over a year out and to be honest I was kind of nervous because the photographer and I didn't speak that much except through email. The week of the wedding I start making last minute calls and get everything prepared! The big day comes and we were going to get married outside and it's raining. I just keep thinking "Oh no what are we going to do about pictures?" This photographer is absolutely amazing! She came up with the most amazing ideas to create the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen in my life! If you would love to see how talented they are go into their website and our wedding album is on there Kadee and Derrick Dunn. You won't be disappointed if you book with Elite Studios!
5-Star! Creative, Modern, ElegantReviewed on 9/21/2014 Amanda S
We got 2 great photographers for extremely reasonable price with NO time limit. We really loved their portfolio when we first saw it. But when we saw our Engagement photos, we were completely sold! (BTW, they offer free Engagement session with the photos). What an Amazing Photography team! We could not be happier with our photos and our Wedding Album. Loved everything - the price, the photographers,the results. Real professionals and skilled photographers. You could tell by the way they carried themselves and their equipment. We will use them again for our family photos, and tell everyone about them who is looking for an amazing photography and great price.
We love Elite Studios!Reviewed on 9/15/2014 Karen W
I have attended numerous Weddings in my lifetime, but I have not seen more impressive Photography Team than Elite Studios! Where do I start? Their work is simply AMAZING! They dress properly and treated everyone with the outmost respect and kindness. We were so proud to have them at our Wedding. At our initial meeting Tina was so genuinely interested in us, she asked us how we met, she asked about my dress…she asked all the right questions. I instantly knew, I wanted them as our Wedding Photographers. The service is impeccable and their prices are so affordable. For the same kind of photography anywhere else we would be paying $2,000-$3,000! They are great at posing and guiding to create the most beautiful and unique portraits, but at the same time their photojournalistic style during the ceremony and the reception was striking. They notice all the details and capture all the emotions. The quality of their photos are of the highest level. The editing techniques they use still preserve the photos in the most real form, they look candid, real and beautiful. They stay clear of the fray and maintain a down-to-earth professional attitude. If you are having trouble finding a photographer whose photos are aesthetically pleasing, timeless, unique, varied and affordable – look no more! Elite Studios will give you that and more. Did I mention – they give out FREE Engagement and/or Bridal session. We will definitely be back for our family portraits in the future, not to mention I will highly recommend them to everyone we know. I said it many times, Thank you again – Elite Studios!
Wedding photosReviewed on 9/14/2014 Danielle F
Overall I felt everything went great! Pictures are beautiful. There were certain things I would have liked captured in pictures that were not. Unfortunately with how hectic weddings are it is impossible to think about those moments in the setting. Also we did not get to our reception till an hour and 15 min after everyone so most people left before or right after we got there so timing was not valued like I felt it should have been. Overall I was happy with the outcome and the amount of pictures we got were amazing. I still haven't finished going through them. My only advice is make sure a family member or someone on your wedding party knows exactly what you have told the photographer you wanted so they can try to remind them or capture it theirselves :)
Heartfelt Thank youReviewed on 9/04/2014 Linda O
Elite Studios – is an amazing team of photographers! They have taken wedding photography to a completely different level. We loved our free Engagement and Bridal sessions. That was such a great thing they do for their couples. Their imagination is incredible and our photos are so beautiful and heartfelt. A story is told in every photo. Every time we look at our Wedding Album, we are transformed right back to our special day. Elite Studios takes such a great care with every step of the process and they truly care about their work and their clients. We felt special and hiring them was the best decision we have made. We will happily recommend them to anyone that is looking for a great photography. We will be scheduling our maternity session with them very soon.
Sinor WeddingReviewed on 8/13/2014 Drew M
Tina and Vaughn, I just wanted to write and tell you how much I appreciate your work before, during and after my son’s wedding on May 25, 2014. You were so friendly and accommodating to our schedule and wishes. The posed and candid shots are amazing! We were sold on your work when you did our family photos in November 2014, and we are looking forward to more opportunities to have you photograph our growing family. Thank you so much, Cheri Sinor
Excellent PhotographyReviewed on 5/26/2014 NaChrisha C

Review for Elite Studios-Tina & VaughnReviewed on 11/22/2013 Nysheah B
My husband and I are so ecstatic about our photos. We did our engagement pictures, bridal photos, and wedding photos with Tina and her husband Vaughn. They are an amazing team. Tina and Vaughn are so creative and imaginative. They both have an eye for photography. We absolutely love our photos. They were great to work with. We have officially chosen them as our family photographers and would recommend them to everyone. One day when we decide to have children we want Tina and Von to capture our families special moments. They are excellent photographers and wonderful people. -Nysheah & Jonathan
Amazing jobReviewed on 11/03/2013 Lindsey H

Best Wedding Photographers!Reviewed on 10/30/2013 Wendy C
Vaughn & Natalie are amazing! They are so professional and very timely! She had several pictures for me to look at less than 24 hours after my wedding! The pictures are everything I could have imagined. I had my album and disc of my pictures within 2 weeks of my wedding. I found Vaughn and Natalie after having to fire my previous photographer and I am so grateful I had to get a new photographer. It was all in the timing. They were a perfect match for us. Their prices are very reasonable. They are very sweet and fun to work with. Even my husband enjoyed taking pictures with them and he hates taking pictures! I received several comments from family and friends about how wonderful they were and how much everyone enjoyed them. They didn't miss a thing. We have photos to treasure forever. We will definitely be using them again in the future and recommending them to all our family and friends. Thank you Natalie & Vaughn!
Amazing work!Reviewed on 10/11/2013 Lis V
Tina and Vaughn shot our engagement and our wedding photos. They did a great job throughout our ceremony and reception. Both are extremely personable and really know how to capture priceless moments. Not only did they take amazing photos but were also wonderful people to share our day with. They kept us calm throughout the event and helped us focus on what was truly important. We received both our engagement and wedding photos extremely fast after the event and the quality was impeccable! I will undoubtedly be calling them again for maternity and baby photos.
Great service & Amazing PhotosReviewed on 9/12/2013 Amanda B
You will really get the BEST with the Elite Studios. Upon signing with them we got FREE Engagement Session – the session and the photos were amazing. We knew we made the right choice. Their work is absolutely beautiful! We got so many compliments on our wedding and engagement photos. Our pictures are unique, elegant and really timeless! We feel that Elite Studios really captured the day and every time I look at the pictures it brings me back. In addition to that they are professional and dependable – really great service. The price is also very affordable and we were receiving photos the next day via e-mail. They were really quick, we got the CD and the Album in 3 weeks! Thank you Elite Studios – you will be HIGHTLY RECOMMENDED !!!
