Disappointed BrideReviewed on 11/20/2014 Chrystal B
I used this company for my wedding in July of 2014. I was referred to him by our wedding planner. In the beginning (before receiving payment), the owner was very responsive and eager to provide excellent customer service. Once payment was received, things went down hill. For starters, I ordered a photo book with my engagement pictures to use as our "guest book". I ordered this item based on the quality of a book I was shown during my initial meeting with the owner. The product that I actually ended up receiving was not the same quality. I was charged $200 for a photo book that was very similar to a photo book I created for my husband as his wedding gift using a "Groupon deal" for only $19. The owner stated that he would compare the quality of the book to see if there was a mistake with his order---but that never happened. The thing that I'm most disappointed in is the fact that we paid the owner and his preferred second photographer for coverage of our wedding day. The second photographer was not friendly. She stood around looking/watching and not actually taking pictures. When I mentioned it to her she got an attitude. The main photographer (the owner) seemed to have an attitude as well. I was very upset that the photographers seemed to be doing more talking amongst themselves than actually capturing our day. I had to ask our wedding planner several times if she could ask them to stop talking and take pictures. It also seemed like the main photographer had a set list of photos that he wanted to take and anything outside of that was a problem. The owner also did not capture all of our day. We have practically no pictures after I changed in my second dress and NONE of our "send off" from the reception. I contacted the owner about the "missing pictures" via phone, email and certified mail. After 30 days of no response from the owner, I sent another email and he finally responded. The owner informed me that I had all the pictures he had. I find that hard to believe as I remember posing for pictures that were not included on the cd of pictures we received. We also have video coverage with both photographers taking pictures; however, the owner holds the position that there are no other pictures. In the end, I'm the one left with no pictures and bad memories of my wedding day. I trusted the photographer and he definitely let me down. Eveytime I think about the loss of pictures I want to cry. He was fully paid for his professional expertise and he did not deliver.
The Best in North TexasReviewed on 1/11/2014 Carol U
Initially our wedding was for August 2013, due to some circumstances we moved it to Dec. 21, 2013. Our initial photographer was not available and we did not like our e-session pictures, so I began looking for a new photographer. Then one day while searching on the knot I came across Still-life media, I looked at their portfolio and fell in love with the pictures, so I contacted Jay and we worked out a great package. He shot our e-session my bridal session and the wedding day. They are such an awesome team to work with and I must say, I highly recommend Still-life to any one looking for great, modern day photography. I will use them again for my graduation and any other events. They are THE BEST in NORTH TEXAS........

The pictures from James and I's wedding are phenomenal!! When viewing our pics for the first time I cried all over again. It was like reliving my wedding day all over again! Jay was professional and worked hard to make sure James and I were happy. He is timely, professional, and very responsive! I would recommend Still-Life Media to anyone for their wedding day without hesitation!!
My Awesome Experience...Reviewed on 10/04/2012 Ijeoma O
I had an awesome experience with Still Life Media and I would recommend him to any bride/groom who is detail oriented and would love careful and precise detailing to pictures with splashes of excitement captured with every photograph. We also had fun with this vendor. I am very satisfied with the services i got!
