Amazing!Reviewed on 1/06/2016 Erin W
The whole process working with George Street was fantastic, from the initial meeting to the receipt of my wedding photos. Steve and Christian were my photographers, and both were incredibly easy to work with, organized, and talented. My wedding photos were also turned around in just over 3 weeks, which was far quicker than I expected! The quality was great and all the important moments were captured. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased with my choice to go with George Street, especially for the value when compared to other photographers!
GeorgeStreet was great! We used them for our wedding in October and were so happy with everything! The engagement pictures turned out great and so did the wedding photos! Our photographer, Amanda, was professional, easy to get a hold of, and did a great job!
George Street Photo and Video really made our special day extra special. The photographers and videographer were very polite and professional. They really made sure before our wedding that we specified everything that we wanted so that they were able to capture each and every moment that was important to us. Our pictures turned out amazing and we couldn't be more pleased with all of the services provided to us. Everyone that we came in contact with, from our first inquiry to the very last email, were super nice and professional and answered every question or concern that we had.
We got married on April 29th and loved working with George Street Photo! They were very professional and made sure that we got all of the pictures we wanted. You could tell that the photographers enjoyed their job and did their best to accommodate all requests! We are very happy with our sneak peak photos and can not wait until the rest are in!
I was not completely satisfied with the pictures from my wedding. I absolutely loved my photographer and a majority of the pictures she took! She was very friendly and nice. However, my husband and I paid extra for a second photographer and I never met him until the end of the night. I paid for an extra photographer to take pictures of our guests, however we did not get any pictures of our guests like we specified prior to the wedding day. Also, I gave a list of wedding picture ideas I wanted and they were never taken. I wish I would have taken more pictures I had asked for before the wedding day and I am very disappointed about the amount of money I paid for the second photographer and never even met him till the end of the night. My photo album did turn out very well and I do love having that and being able to create it.
We worked with George Street for photo and video of our April 7th wedding. We have not seen the photos or video yet, but their service was fantastic! We worked with Stephanie as our lead photographer and she is amazing! We were able to do an engagement shoot with her and have seen those photos so we can't wait to see the wedding ones! She knows what she's doing and is just "bossy" enough to get everyone in line. Weddings are chaotic and there's a lot going on, so we knew we needed someone who could get everyone where they needed to be for the more staged photos. She's very funny and we had a great time working with her! She suggested the photo location for our engagement shoot and we are so happy we went with her suggestion since they turned out beautiful! We didn't work as closely with the associate photographer and videographer but they were both very friendly and blended in well so that we barely noticed they were there, which is exactly what we wanted! Our videographer made some suggestions before our wedding when we spoke on the phone about timelines and his ideas worked out much better than what we had planned! The coordinators are very helpful as well. We spoke with Katie a few times and she provided suggestions on photo locations and guided us through the process. Their portal is very easy to use and made the planning process much simpler. The booking process was easy as well, and we honestly have nothing but good things to say!
Giving a deposit to this shady company was the biggest mistake I have made. You NEVER get to meet your photographers until your wedding day and they refuse to show you examples of their work and references. They use students with no prifessional background and I'm sorry to say that I fell for their package price. Stay away from this company. I will be filing a formal complaint with the BBB soon.
This is not a biased review as I legitimately had a horrible experience. I also am normally very easy going about decisions, but this company really screwed me over. I searched FOREVER for the best prices on videography and was on the fence about this company from all the mixed reviews. I HIGHLY urge you ladies to book somewhere else (note, I only used them for videography, not photography) We received our wedding video about 2 months ago and I am extremely disappointed and upset at the quality of the video. I was reassured that the quality of the video would be cinematic and that our original videographer would capture all my needs. Well, first off, the videographer cancelled extremely last minute which resulted in a substitute. At the time and after the wedding, I was fine with this (I obviously had no choice, it was my wedding day and I had no knowledge or expectations of what our videographer's work was like). Once we received the DVD, I was enraged. It looked like a home video that I could've done myself. I actually had a family member who took a video of the entire wedding and it was edited and shot MUCH better than this garbage. I'd also like to point out that the online planner form was POINTLESS. They urged me to complete this in full detail, which I did, and they did not follow any of what I asked. The most prominent miss is the song choice. I specifically asked them to play You and Me by Lifehouse in the background of the clip 5 min clip. That request was completely ignored and instead they played a ridiculous song. If our song choice wasn't available or allowed, I should have been notified. Overall I am extremely disappointed with this company and service. We wasted our money and I will never refer this company anyone I know.
George Street made our lives so easy. From the second we began talking to them to when the night was over they were nothing but helpful. Our coordinator helped us with every detail and was always there to offer additional tips for us to consider. Our photographers on the day of the wedding were fantastic. We even changed part of our itinerary that we had given them (driving to a completely different location for 3 pictures) and they thought it was a great idea and even got there before us to begin testing out the lighting. They were incredibly friendly during the wedding and got wonderful pictures throughout the night. Following the wedding we received a sneak peak about 2 weeks after and were amazed by the photos. Once all the photos were available there wasn't a single on we didn't like. We also had a scrap book made by George Street and it turned out great as well. It is 10x10 and is printed on think hearty paper to last forever. They created the book for us but allowed us to change anything we like (we only had 2 changes out of 20 pages). We have recommended George Street to any friend we know getting married. They are the best value for the professional and caring service you receive.
George Street Photo & Video was fantastic and very easy to work with. I loved the style quiz they had you take so they could match you with the best photographer. Their web portal was super easy to use and whenever I had a question their customer support was very helpful and polite. Stephanie Laree was our lead photographer and she was amazing. She made everyone feel super comfortable and was always very professional. Her shots were creative and she was willing to take some that we had requested based on shots we had seen online. I will definitely be using her services in the future if I need a photographer! And I would highly recommend George Street if you are looking for a wedding photography service!
We had a wonderful experience with George Street. Holly was our wedding coordinator and she was very helpful in assisting me with our photographer timeline and general questions. Julio was our main photographer and he was wonderful! He managed to get all of the shots I requested and many more candid ones. It was nice to see what else was going on while I was distracted with other things. He was assisted by Jack who also did a wonderful job, they were a great team.
Konrad and the rest of the George Street Photo team were great to work with! Very professional and great pictures!
George Street was so easy to work with. The initial meeting and the on-hand consultant were very helpful with the whole process. The photographers Petr (lead photog.), Nancy (assistant photog.), and Rogie (videographer) were very professional on the day of the wedding. Petr was also amazing during our engagement shoot. I can't wait to see the finished photos and video!
We had an enjoyable experience with George Street. From the moment we met at the office until the day of the wedding we had continuess communication. They were all friendly and professional. We were so happy with our photos and our beautiful wedding book. Do not hesitate to hire George Street. You will be delighted!!!!!
We had a wedding photographer named KP who was always quick to respond and very helpful. The photographers and video guy they sent were all amazing in helping with every aspect of our day.
They match you with the perfect photographer for your special day. They coordinators were a huge help when filling out your events time line and allocating minutes to your photographer. Very easy to work with during the wedding and had some very creative and unique poses!
Finding a photographer that can produce high quality photos at a reasonable price is tough, but we got the complete package with George Street. Ping was our photographer and he did an amazing job! We really put an emphasis on candid pictures, and he did great. We have such a tough time picking our favorite pictures because there are just so many. Ping rolled with the punches when we fell behind, and adjusted well to anything thrown his way. It is easy to get overwhelmed with all the planning that goes into pictures, but George Street came up big in that regard. They helped us plan our photography timeline to the minute. They were easy to reach if I had any questions. Plus they helped us pick locations for bridal party pictures that made sense logistically and artistically.
Polly was our photographer she made the day go so smoothly. She was so energetic and smiling the whole day. Got back my sneak peak pictures so far and they are breathtaking. She captured our personalities in the day to perfection. The staff and team at George street was perfect to work with. Someone was always there to answer questions or help plan out the day. Highly recommended.
Before we even booked with George Street, we knew we wanted them for our wedding. Their online portfolio was gorgeous, and they fit perfectly into our budget. We met with a representative from GS at a Starbucks near our apartment (so convenient). She got to know us and what we were looking for in our wedding photos. She showed us a few portfolios, taking our feedback along the way to help narrow it down to the perfect photographer: Tobias. We did our engagement photos through another photographer, so we didn't actually meet Tobias until the day of the wedding, but from the moment we met him we knew he would be wonderful. He was very thoughtful about the pictures he took, paid attention to the details, and knew exactly how to set everything up quickly and naturally for the best photo. He set us up for our first look so that the lighting would be just right, and he was so great about letting us have our moment without intrusively taking photos. He told me "Once Matt touches your shoulder, turn towards him and forget that I'm here," which was so easy to do because he stepped back and gave us our space. While we walked to meet the rest of our bridal party for pictures, Tobias stopped us at various points along the way to take pictures with the right light or a beautiful background - he really was an artist at work, and you could see his passion for getting just the right shot. Once we met up with the bridal party, Tobias spotted the perfect background and got us set up immediately. He worked efficiently and professionally, and was mindful of our limited time. Throughout the ceremony and the rest of the evening, he was constantly moving around and taking pictures at just the right moments. The pictures he showed us throughout the day looked gorgeous, and we cannot wait to see how they all turn out!
We had Tobias for our photographer and he was AWESOME!! He was so comfortable to be around and made all of the photos go smoothly. He look lots of requests too! He felt part of our group right away. We are SO lucky to have chosen Tobias! We highly recommend him :)
Great professional photographers!! We had Sorin as our lead photographer and he was great. Any of our friends or family who had the pleasure of talking with him said he was very nice and professional. He was great at respectfully getting the attention of my bridal party. He took amazing pictures and did not miss a shot. I received my "sneak peek" photos back so far and they are amazing. I can not wait to see the rest. The first photographer we picked was no very good. It took a lot of emails and phone calls to get a new photographer. the communication was not great with the staff. At the end of the day I am glad we ended up with a great photographer.
Best value in the city. Efficient communication process, easy to manage remotely, and great pictures! For couples looking for great pictures and the ability to control costs, this is the route for you. Great people throughout the entire process and very happy with the end result!
Really professional company to work with, always handled everything quickly. My only complaint was that I met the photographer the day of the wedding and I felt like I didn't really get to know her. There were a couple times I felt like if she had just stepped out of her comfort zone and told us that the shot could have been improved on, then I would have ended up loving 100% of our wedding photos instead of only loving 75% of them.
George Street was great! They helped me every step of the way! Wedding preparations can get confusing but, they made sure our day was photographed professionally and beautifully!
We have not gotten our photos back yet but I already know they will be awesome! Glenn, Edward and Bart had so many on the spot ideas to give us really unique pictures and we had a blast with them. Our bridal party was 22 people and they somehow managed to get everything done we wanted and keep us all together in one place! My emails were always answered promptly and the wedding coordinators were extremely helpful with tips and ideas I would not have thought of on my own. Planning was REALLY easy with the online portal. Highly recommend them :)
