Steve at George Street Photography was fantastic! Steve did our engagement shoot as well as our wedding. After our engagement shoot, we knew we were good hands! Steve worked extremely hard at our wedding. His photojournalistic style was really ...
appreciated, helping us get all the candid shots we wanted. He was like a fly on the wall, everywhere at once. Steve has an eye for a great photo: be it capturing the perfect moment, finding the best background, using the natural lighting or helping us strike the perfect pose. The photos he was able to capture will be cherished for the rest of our lives. We cannot thank Steve enough. George Street made the whole process so easy. Their online platform was easy to navigate, and our phone meetings helped keep details clear and answer our questions. Their day of timeline guideline was also super helpful in figuring out what shots we wanted and how much time to allot for different photo sessions. We would definitely recommend George Street for any couple looking for a photographer.

Let us start with the booking process, having to plan everything based on what we see on the internet our trust in everything was on the borderline. Nicole Trier as our Wedding Consultant was able to answer our millio...
n in one questions/concerns. She was very informative and gave us great options on different photographers with different styles. We decided to go with Jessica L, we enjoyed her portfolio and background credentials. After booking, Georgestreet offers a Wedding Coordinator that is included in our package. This was very helpful, we utilized it especially towards the time stamps for the big day.
We got to have a interview/conversation over the phone with our photographer Jessica L a few days before the wedding. This gave us an opportunity to go over the schedule and family photo templates/locations. After speaking on the phone with her, it gave us much more confidence towards the big day.
Big day, Jessica arrived on time and very courteous and polite! She wasted no time and took picture of everything and anything. She knew we really would like candid photos of our intimate wedding and she delivered! We are so happy and blessed she got to capture our big day! Jessica gave us more than we could ask for! She brought our intimate COVID wedding out with the photos she took. Jessica was very flexible and able to work with us and our crazy family.
We waited just a month for our photos to be available to us, Nora the Wedding Coordinator kindly sent us the credentials for access to our photos. All the photos were impeccable! They sectioned out in Albums. We received more photos than we imagined..500+! Nora was available to answer any of our questions even after services were provided!
We appreciate the amazing customer service and wonderful quality that was provided by Georgestreet! Highly recommend! Thank you so much to the whole team!

We absolutely loved our photographer, Milena! She was easy to work with and the photos turned out stunningly beautiful and came back in a month! The only negative was that we were never told by our wedding planning contact about photo permits. ...
We reviewed our day of plan about a month out with the planning team and told them where we planned to take our photos (local park). It wasn't until we had the final call with our photographer the week of our wedding that she mentioned we'd need a permit. It was too late to apply for one so we had to change around our plans for the day, causing issues for transportation, timing, and the look of our photos. The planning team needs to be more informed about permit requirements and tell couples early on.

houghts became negative towards George Street. I stressed for almost a year on my choice. The week of my wedding, I spoke with Shannon the Photographer. She is seriously the sweetest lady. She calmed down my nerves and negative thoughts toward GSP. The day before the wedding rain was in the forecast. I kept in touch with Shannon on a plan B to have photos at the Hotel instead of the actual Venue since it was outside. The day of the wedding we decided to do the photos at the hotel. She came up with a new timeline and sent it to me. She met every single expectation, I had. She was kind, generous and made sure I was comfortable and everyone else was! I got a sneak peak of the photos and I am so happy I went with Shannon and George Street!

n with Jessica, who was an absolute delight to work with. She also did photos for our wedding, along with Sergio. They were both amazing, and the photos came out great. We loved them. With video, due to religious/cultural preferences, we asked for a female videographer. However, we were first assigned a male (I found out by accident actually). At first they didn't budge about changing the videographer, and when they did find a female, they wanted to charge me a travel fee for her. At this point, it wasn't about the money - it was about the principle. As your customer, you should have figured things out on your end without getting me involved. Eventually, they gave in and took care of the travel fee. The day of the wedding - all goes well with video. Kendra was so sweet and managed to catch all the important footage of the evening. However, before the videos went for editing, I made some requests from the editors for things not to include in the highlight video. They've sent it to me twice, not taking into account those requests both times. It's now been 7 months since our wedding, and I still have not gotten that video. I'm pretty tired of waiting at this point, and just hope that someday they'll remember to send the corrected video to me.

If you like playing Russian Roulette, then this the choice for you! You choose a contracted photographer at random. The only factor you really have to base your decision is a handful of photos (the best of the best edits) by said photographer. ...
Once you make your barely educated guess on a photographer you are locked in. A videographer will be given to you at random about a month before the wedding.
They'll jokingly ask your opinion on specific shots you would like during the wedding. I say jokingly because they may or may not get the shots you asked for. I wanted a shot of my husband's face when he saw me coming down the aisle. We had TWO photographers and neither of them got that shot. This is only one of the few requests I made that was disregarded. I'm not even sure why we had a second photographer other than to have her photo bomb what would have been decent pictures. I gave specifics on family dynamics that should be avoided, this too was disregarded leading to awkward, avoidable situations.
The pictures you do receive will be unedited and untouched up, basic things like cropping out the 2nd photographer. When we raised our concerns we were only given 50 free edits and an album of random pics that they deemed too dark/overexposed, and honestly you can never get the moments back to capture them at that point.
We were told that we would be able to review the footage and make edits to the music in the video before it would be finalized. NOPE! One day we received an email saying our package was on the way and a video was shipped to us. The music skips in the video, transitions are awkward, etc.
I cant wait to see how the album turns out...

Unlike many photographers, George Street works as a sort of clearinghouse - you provide George Street your wedding details/needs, who is supposed to pass all of that info to the photographers you choose from their portfolio. So it's a bit tric...
ky to review the entire process.
To be clear, our photographers got a number of memorable photos. However, the process with George Street (the entity) was clumsy, confusing and filled with mistakes. Our coordinator changed on emails (George Street blamed that on an email-merge error on their end), and we were never able to get our coordinator on the phone. It's simply a call bank of random GS employees who type your info into their database.
George Street makes you fill out an extensive form to ensure they meet your needs, yet much of that form info was not relayed to the photographer. So we missed out on things like table photos from people who traveled long distances for the wedding.
Again, we enjoyed the photographers. I simply wish we could have worked with them independently instead of the awkward, mistake-prone bureaucracy of George Street. The photographers were good but GS was bad, so I'm doing 3 stars to average it out.

responsive, and understanding of my unfortunate experience with our lead photographer (George Street did everything they could to make it right). That being said, our lead photographer was HORRIBLE. She was absolutely the worst part of my wedding day, and ruined the photographic experience for me. We chose her based on her portfolio, since the venue shown was similar to what ours would be (which was in Scottsdale, AZ in March), and we liked her candid photography style. We were told she would contact us a week in advance of the wedding, and instead she called THE DAY BEFORE the wedding, as we were on our way to our rehearsal dinner. When we met her the day of, she was extremely aggressive, did not listen to anyone and did not take the feedback or photo requests into consideration for what we wanted captured. She was very clearly uncomfortable with photographing outside, and did not take advantage of the landscape the gorgeous venue had to offer (we paid a lot of money for the venue that wasn't photographed properly). She also didn't get ANY photos of me, the bride, on my wedding day. I asked for portraits and the only solo shots she got of me were in the horribly-lit dressing room as I was getting ready. When it came time for family portraits, she was so uncomfortable with the setting and sunlight that she forced all of us against a brick wall with ugly foliage in the background, claiming that she “needed shade” and the "dappled lighting will look terrible" (it was an outdoor wedding…in sunny AZ…). Meanwhile, our assistant photographer was WONDERFUL to work with and took gorgeous photos in EVERY type of lighting the venue had to offer--she saved the day. Unfortunately, I did not know she would take the better photos so she was assigned to the groom/groomsmen, and the "lead" photographer was assigned to me. I desperately wish it had been the other way around, since I feel like I got jipped on my wedding day. She then didn't provide us with a ton of the photos we had taken and posed for afterwards, so we had to beg to access those via George Street, and sadly they were not worth the wait. I am heartbroken and devastated about my photography experience on my wedding day. We cannot recreate the moments or the memories, and we left without anything to commemorate the event in the way we wanted. Having to schedule separate portrait sessions AFTER YOUR WEDDING because your lead photographer is incompetent on the actual day is unacceptable. I appreciated the second portrait session being comped by GS and being given the opportunity to work with my first portrait photographer again, but it wasn't the same since we were back in Boston, and our wedding was in Arizona. All around an extremely disappointing experience that can never truly be made up for.

see to know what they're doing and we are glad they made every effort to always find the best lighting for us. The photographer missed a few photo opportunities that we were hoping to get, and we didn't feel like there was enough fun photos showing our personality - I guess I was hoping to get more guidance from her on this portion. But the photos she did take are stunning and made us look great and for that we are very happy!

king photos, which was not what we wanted. We were also told that the only suitable lighting was in these two area of our venue... We had a whole beautiful historic mansion, and the person only took our pictures in two locations (literally one room, and one spot outside). No interesting, creative, natural looking 'poses' were suggested. We were basically standing in one spot the whole time, which left for very little variety in our pics. I thought we had communicated prior to the wedding what we wanted, but maybe there was a misunderstanding. The other thing we were disappointed about was the fact that there were many guests that were not even pictured. The whole point of having two photogs was to make sure all the guests were captured at some point. We didn't need 1000s of pictures of us, we needed pictures of our loved ones sharing in the moment with us.

It took us two months past when we originally wanted to have our engagement photos done to get them. After that it was better, but communication could be improved.

missing HUGE moments from wedding day that were specifically asked for beforehand, having to reach out multi times because we never received our wedding video after almost 9 months, and even a year later having our pictures reposted on our back up photographer personal IG account without consent (the only reason we found out is because a friend knew the person, we had no idea who they were). George Street is "great" with answering emails and calls but horrible with everything else.
We even did an engagement shoot with our photographer and she was great, then when it came to wedding day she was HORRIBLE. No effort put into pictures, sour attitude the whole time, and missed huge moments. We had requested shots to be taken at a dock at our venue during cocktail hour, and she did not communicate with us or venue about it at all so we missed opportunity because of another wedding starting at the end of our cocktail hour. She missed cake cutting kiss picture, horrible angels during ceremony, missed front shot of grooms face when bride walked down isle (requested). The list goes on. All that was offered to us was additional edits ( you can't edit pictures that were not take).
My best friend also used company, thats why we went with them and they had a better experience but truly cannot believe all the problems we have had! DO NOT USE

When we received the pictures, we were blown away by the moments they captured especially candid moments of our guests that was an important request of ours. He was also able to capture some of the personal details of our wedding which we appreciated. They both also made us feel comfortable throughout the process. We have our leatherbound album that comes with the package and it's truly beautiful and professionally made. These are the snap shot memories we love looking back on! We also had Zach as our videographer who was also able to capture all the perfect moments of our wedding. He captured our wedding from all different angles as best as he could since he was working solo. It was impressive! We have seen our video about 10 times now with and without our family and have enjoyed reliving the moments.

During the pre-wedding call, she listened carefully to our specific thoughts and requests. The day of the wedding, she was charming and fun, but gave us clear direction and feedback to make sure that our photos turned out great. She was mindful of the schedule, which we greatly appreciated, but still flexible when things needed to be shifted around a bit. At this point, we have only seen our preview images, but we are really happy with how they turned out so far! The candid and artful images ("vanity fair" style, as Alex called it) was exactly what we were looking for. They are classy and timeless; and, we look great, but still like ourselves (we were very worried about looking fake and overly touched up). We would absolutely work with Alexandra again, and we can't wait to see the rest of the photographs! Thanks again, Alex!!

I was very happy with my choice of George Street (GS) Photography and Video for my wedding and I would choose them again. First of all, photography and videography for a wedding is extremely pricey at baseline and I think the packages that GS o...
ffers are very reasonable...if you are OK with not being 100% in control (some brides are not).
Essentially what GS does is hire photographers and videographers for 1 day of work or a certain number of hours and then collect the photos/video and someone DIFFERENT at GS, not the photographer/videographer, will edit photos and make the book for you.
The areas you don't have much control is you don't get to meet any of the photographers or videographers until the day of (can call them week of the wedding) and most of the time, they also will not know each other or have worked together so you have to trust that they will be able to work together well.
I particularly liked GS because I was going to take my engagement photos in one city and get married in another. GS has relationships with photographers multiple cities, so not having to fly someone around was a plus for me. Yes it was two different people for the engagement shoot and the wedding but I actually didn't mind that at all and had a great experience with both photographers.
The downsides are the timeline of your wedding day you fill in online is not that user friendly and sometimes you had to tell the photographer exactly what you want them to do or take pictures of (maybe had to do this a few times but not all the time). The layout for the album they eventually give you will take a lot of editing and back and forth to get the way you like. When you get the photos (does take approx. 2 months) back just tell them you want everything because the people who work there will not always choose the best photos.
The customer service was very responsive whenever we needed anything.
Knowing what I know now, I would not hesitate to choose GS again.

but she knows her way around a camera and the space around her. She did our engagement photos and, after having to cancel our first shoot due to an emergency, she travelled pretty far to make it up to us. Our photos came sooner than expected. They have an online portal that you can input information into and make payments on which made it really easy. We had a “wedding coordinator” assigned to us and he would always e-mail us to update us on payments and when pictures were available. About a week after our shoot, they e-mailed us a sneak peak of our photos. A couple weeks later, all of our photos were available. And a couple weeks after that, they were available to download. The same happened for our wedding photos. For our wedding, we also had Bart as our second photographer. He was hilarious! He mainly worked with my husband but whenever he was photographing us, he made me forget that it was really hot and humid out and that my dress was really heavy! Our videographer was Justin. He called me a few days before to reach out and get any final details I wanted ironed out which was really nice of him. I’m not used to being the focal point, but he was very unobtrusive and half the time I didn’t even notice he was there. He didn’t ask me to stage anything and it all was very organic. To my surprise, the next day he sent me a mini trailer of our wedding video! We are still waiting on the full video but its only been 3 weeks since our wedding. Overall, I would highly recommend George Street Photo and Video to anyone! I already have people asking about them since they’ve seen our photos on Facebook!

We had several ups and downs working with George Street, but mostly downs. In short, the lead photographer that we received was AMAZING. He went above and beyond, and even helped us in some places where George Street did not. The 2nd photograph...
er was brutal, he didn't capture a single good/usable shot. The videographer took all of our wedding video with essentially a regular photography camera on video mode, and when you compare the production quality and editing of our final wedding videos to others out there, we didn't get anything short of a basic sequential ordering of trimmed video clips. The majority of our video was filmed on a tripod. Nothing special about the video production at all. Initially the first "release" of images to us was missing a ton of important photos, so whoever went through them didn't really look thoroughly. Then about 25% of our photos were "missing". They released them all to us, but there were no photos of the reception after dinner/toasts. Wouldn't it seem strange you're releasing photos to a couple after "selecting the best" and there isn't a single photo of the reception itself? Took months to track them down, eventually took us contacting the photographer directly to get them. Little no no help, GS is too big of an agency managing too many weddings, so there isn't much of a personal touch. Definitely not worth the $5k+ they cost us. The only reason we're at 2 stars is because out lead photographer was amazing, but the rest of the experience was absolutely poor.
