SCAM SCAM SCAM. Do not book this vendor!!! Gedion is a thief and will not deliver what he says. He steals other videographer's work and marks it as his own. I wouldn't be surprised if all the positive reviews were posted by him as part of his s...
cam. DO NOT TRUST THIS MAN. I am so so sad that I will forever be without a wedding video. I have no words for how disgusted I am. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

This is a scam!
I wish I would have looked into reviews before booking with this vendor. Gedion Abraham is scum. He took our money & never delivered a wedding video. Initially he was ‘seemingly nice’ and would check in providing ‘updates’ as to...
the progress on our wedding video but he also had multiple excuses as to why the video wasn’t ready such as being sick, having foot pain, being closed for the holidays, server issues, uploading issues, discoloration in the video etc. All we were given was false hope, empty promises, & utter disgust. He truly put on a show, acting like he was really recording footage at our wedding, interviewing our families and friends, getting multiple angles and whatnot and it was all an act. It’s one thing to scam a person & take their money but it’s even worse to rob someone of memories that can’t be recreated or replaced. He took the ability to watch video recounting our wedding day away from us. We’re lucky that we have beautiful photos from our photographer but I still wish we had video as well. I hope no one else has to go through this chaos, disappointment, & anguish that we did with this vendor. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

Mr. Abraham was so great! He made Aman and I feel so comfortable (Aman is a bit camera shy). He was very professional and the quality of the photos came out beautifully. I would and have already recommended him to friends and family.

I’m writing a review on how my Husband and I got scammed on our wedding photos/video by a photographer named Gideon Abraham. More than a year later and we still haven’t gotten our finished product or albums, nor a refund. We have been in consta...
nt contact for the past year, and literally have heard every excuse in the book as to why our pics/video are not ready. Some examples include: “my computer froze,” “the flu,” “it was a holiday.” Each time he says “tomorrow” and we get to heard a different excuse, it is RIDICULOUS. I have never met a bigger liar in my life! He still has the audacity to pretend he has “an editor” & blame things on “him” when he does all the work himself. The pictures we have seen are terrible, literally 80% of the photos we have seen are blurry to the point of no return. If i had asked a friend to photograph my wedding via their cell phone they would have been WAY better. Gideon has no problem taking your money, and doing a half assed job.. no conscience. I’ve been contacted by other people who’ve done business with him before & they’ve had similar experiences. He’s unprofessional. Only reason I’m writing this review is save another bride/groom the heartache of not having wedding memories captured.

We would not recommend Gedion Abraham, dba Head of the Class Photography, to anybody, including our worst enemies. My wife and I were married on November 15, 2014, and paid $2,000 to Mr. Abraham for his services. In our opinion, the photograp...
hs that he gave us could have been taken by any amateur photographer on an average day. Many of his shots were out of focus, the backgrounds were fuzzy, or Gedion failed to correct for the lighting conditions of the church. He was also supposed to take a video of the wedding, but it appears that the videographer never showed up, and the video did not begin until after the procession was over. The video itself was taken without any panning or zooming in and out, leaving one to believe that somebody just started the camera and left it running.
After we complained, Gedion agreed to provide us with the promised album using pictures that he thought were the best, enhancing them to improve the background and lighting conditions under which they were taken. He also promised to enhance the video so that it would zoom in and out on some of the important parts of the wedding. Instead, he provided us with an album which contained pictures that were grainy and had no photo titles. He agreed to correct that. But it has been almost three-and-a-half years since the wedding took place, and we have not received what we have paid for.
We also found out that Gedion works out of his home, because letters are returned undeliverable when mailed to the Orange address that is listed on his website. His website also states that he is a 2016 David’s Bridal Preferred Vendor and member of the 2016-2017 David’s Bridal elite group of wedding photographers. A call to David’s Bridal confirmed that this claim is unfounded.
We finally took Mr. Abraham to Small Claims Court, and we thought that we had finally reached an arbitrated agreement with him. However, again, he failed to provide the agreed-upon products, and we now have a court order for the return of $1,800, which we will probably never see. Our recommendation is that anybody who is thinking of using this photographer should think twice before doing so. He has, in our opinion, ruined our wedding memories, and we don’t want him to ruin anybody else’s.

I was overly disappointed with my wedding photos from Gideon. And also his lack of bedside manners. I paid extra for extra touches to be made to my photos and they all look like someone just took some shots with their cell phone. little to no e...
diting. And when his assistant (whom is a good friend of mine now) confronted him in regards to the lack of editing, he just couldn't understand what we were talking about. He doesn't have an eye for weddings. My centerpiece photos had trash in the pictures. As did my other decor pix that his assistant told him to remove the plate from the scene first. He only used one lense. My outside photos look like they were taken at night. He took a lot of our friends and fam at the reception. Like, a lot. I could have used more of just my husband and I or us with our guests. He, to me, is all about what he's getting paid and doesn't love or have the passion for photography. He's blowing up my friends phone trying to get him to do his wedding and it's very unprofessional. Too bad I can't get my wedding day back and use someone else to capture my memories. Or get my money back. I'd give him no stars.
