We got married this past October and were so pleased with both the photographer and the company. I had 3 months to get everything to get and had no idea what I was doing. They walked me through every step and made it so easy. The photographer was amazing. He showed up early,... Read More jumped around on rocks to get great pictures and even danced with us on the dance floor! He made us feel right at home. I can't say enough good things and would absolutely recommend them over and over.

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... Read More 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... Read More 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 this past March. We live in the Chicagoland area and were planning a wedding in Michigan. Everyone at George Street was exremely helpful in answering my questions, helping me set up a time line, and keeping with the style of photos we wanted to capture our special... Read More day. There wasn't a moment that got missed and so many perfect moments that were taken for us to remember forever. They helped us arrange both our engagement session here in IL, and all of the wedding details in MI. George Street was worth every single penny!

I am not usually one to right negative reviews, but I was actually quite disappointed in my pictures. They did not turn out bad, but I was expecting much more from having two photographers. I also wish my photographer was more assertive as I felt like I had to spend time... Read More directing people which was super stressful instead of being able to enjoy my special day. In my opinion after going through this process you should ABSOLUTELY be able to meet with your photographer before you book with them. To anyone reading this I would NOT recommend George Street Photography.

Our experience with George Street was not great. I wouldn't recommend this company for wedding photography. We had several phone calls with the company about packages and photographers. Once we decided, we were in contact with our photographer. We had several over the phone... Read More meetings with her to discuss our wants, needs and visions for the day. This was all ruined when she cancelled an hour before she was suppose to arrive for pictures. They sent a replacement but he didn't have any of the information we had discussed. It was a huge stress the day of the wedding and I wouldn't want that for anyone I know. Our wants and visions weren't met as the replacement didn't have the same photography style as the originally booked photographer. With the amount of money we spent it is a huge disappointment.

George Street was a great choice for our wedding. We had a consultant/coordinator that helped with all the initial questions and details, including helping pick out our photographer. They have an online portal that makes it very easy to share information about the wedding and... Read More create a day of timeline. Being able to work on the timeline ahead helped plan for the day and keep everyone on the same page. We didn't get to meet Sara until the day of but she was right on time and jumped in to action as soon as she arrived. She did a great job providing direction when needed but also being open to our ideas/suggestions. We also got to work with Meghan and both were patient when we got interrupted but also made sure we got the pictures we wanted by the end of the night. Overall the system was easy and organized and we loved working with Sara and Meghan!!

We have loved our experience with George Street for our June 10, 2017 wedding. We worked with photographer Katie and videographer Spencer and loved them both. We have not received our photos yet but the whole experience has been incredible. Katie went above and beyond to meet... Read More with us prior to the wedding and go over every detail she needed to capture what we were looking for. She even coordinated communication among our vendors so everyone was on the same page. We can't wait to see our photos and video and have no doubt that they will be absolutely perfect. Highly recommended!

I was initially very excited about our George Street photo experience. The follow up and communication prior to the wedding was outstanding and I felt assured that the wedding day would go smoothly. Prior to the wedding, I didn't feel that our photographer got any pictures of me... Read More and my bridesmaids and my groom felt the same. A combination of my wedding planner and poor direction, led us to start photos about 20 minutes late following the service- not George Street's fault. But then once the photos began, I had provided a detailed list of photos. Our photographer did not command the room and a bunch of my wedding guests had to step in to help her and I had to yell at family to assemble. She did not appear to check the photos she took 2 shots of each photo. I know all the photos I would have wanted were not captured and am pretty sure big moments like cutting the cake and the groom/Mom dance photos were missed. Either our photographer was a ninja, or our pictures will be minimal. Either way, I don't think it is the photographer's fault. There should be someone there to help facilitate pictures with them, especially if it's one of their first jobs. The pictures may turn out great, but for what we paid, I don't feel confident they will.

VERY DISSAPPOINTING! Unfortunately, I would not recommend George Street Photography to any bride-to-bes. Our photographer was absolutely awful. I attempted to contact him several times the week before our wedding only to have to call George street. He then contacted me THE... Read More DAY before our wedding and asked me the EXACT questions I had filled out online. Despite filling out the itinerary for him, we had to tell him where to go and which pictures to take. He had no ideas of pictures for us, his response was "whatever, sure". I had given him a list of 3 specific pictures I wanted him to make sure he got..... he got none of them. It is easy to say that our photographer was the worst part of our wedding by far.

I will always regret using this company. It seems to be very hit or miss depending on what photographer you get, but mine was absolutely horrible. His portfolio and style were hugely misrepresented by George street. He shot almost all of the pictures with a wide angle lens for... Read More the bridal party and family photos, so most of the have serious distortion to faces. In addition, he knew nothing about framing and shot the photos so close that I can't even fix the distortion myself without cutting people off. Most of them are also very crooked. The editing was also not at all at a professional level. I could've had a friend with a camera phone take better pictures. In addition to the amateur photography skills, he showed up a half hour late and missed all the getting ready photos, and didn't stay later to try to make up for it. I asked for a particular shot of my dress and the bridesmaids and he said "I don't usually do that"...

I have to say- I've never had an experience so awful in my entire life! George Street was amazing up front and in the beginning, their prices were low- their portfolios were light and airy- they allowed me to "choose" the photographer who was the "best choice!". And the best... Read More part for an overly organized bride to be like me- they had an entire time line set up to put you at ease! And then the wedding came... I'm not going to talk about the fact that my photographer CANCELLED on me during my rehearsal dinner just hours before the biggest day of my life!!! Instead i'll talk about the things that should normally go right that didn't. Like the fact that they didn't get ONE picture of my husband getting ready or any of his groomsmen! Or how my photographer was asking me where we wanted to go and take pictures! And then I receive my pictures back! and as stressed out as I was during the wedding I kept trying to tell myself- "it's fine, i'm sure they got amazing pictures!" Nope. All the light and airy pictures I saw in the portfolios, on the website, it was nothing like my pictures. Pictures came back off centered, not straight, pictures with other people in the back that shouldn't be. My first look where there are absolutely no pictures worth even showing anyone. Oh and the best one- THEY MISSED OUR FIRST KISS!!!! Our first kiss, could you believe that- not one picture of that!! I just read a comment from another bride who said “our photos were not edited, are so washed, poor lighting, awkwardly positions, everyones eyers are closed, hair sticking straight up etc.” and I couldn’t agree more!!! Listen- your wedding goes by so fast and as much as you try to take it all in, its hard! Your photos are the ONE thing you have to help you re-live that day!!! DO NOT USE GEORGE STREET!

Their customer service is amazing, and the sneak peek preview photographs have been just stunning so far. I really appreciated the way their website is set up so you can input all sorts of details into a plan for your photographer/videographer, and I am so glad I can pay the... Read More price I did and receive all the digital negatives plus a few touch-ups. The photographer arrived early and was a real pleasure to work with. When you consult with George Street, they show you the work of several photographers based on your desired style. George Street is really a company liaising between individual photographers and clients, so I found out my photographer has his own studio and is getting paid by George Street much less than if I had hired him separately (without George Street as a middleman). Granted, on my side, I benefit from the cheaper George Street package, which was more favorable for my wallet, but if you tend to prefer supporting individual artists, keep that in mind.

Worst Photography ever.

Also they lost some of the pictures and I was only able to... Read More get a few of them but I NEVER saw the pictures of just me as a the bride. The lighting was horrible and there was only one picture I absolutely loved.
