Same issue as the last two reviews...paid in full and never received our albums. They not only stopped answering phone calls, their online presence has disappeared and they moved out of the storefront they were in so I have no way of getting ahold of anybody. It's YEARS later and I'm still trying to get the albums we paid for. STAY AWAY. This place steals your money.
Never completed our Wedding Album, we paid in fullReviewed on 4/10/2014 Kristen G
Robert Giglione and his wife took our wedding photos, gave us our picture files and prints and then when it was time to complete our album it was supposed to be done November 2013. They informed us they would be 2 month late and it would be done January 2014. January came and went and then they told us it would be done February 2014. When we emailed asking again for it to be completed or for a refund they stopped answering our calls and our emails. We had already paid in full and we have no wedding album as of today 4/10/2014. Our wedding was October 20th 2012.
Velvet StudioReviewed on 7/09/2012 Melissa L
When we were looking at photographers/videographers we met with 6 different vendors before making our final decision. Velvet Studio not only offered the most for the best price but were very up front about everything. They offer incentives when you make an early payment. The quality of the work was fantastic. Bob was wonderful to work with and was very quick with all the photos - He got us in to 45min of our cocktail hour! He worked well with us and all of our bridal party and parents. He was a pleasure to work with. Ronnie was a wonderful videographer. He was pleasant and funny. We cannot wait until we get our final video from him! I would greatly recommend Velvet to any Long Island brides & grooms.

Very professional and in control! He took beautiful pictures and I was happy to spend the money! The videographer worked in perfect unison with the photographer
Friendly and professionalReviewed on 5/24/2012 chelsea b
We worked with bob and Ellen as our photographers and also had one of their videographers. There was some confusion in the morning, bob came to the hotel to photograph the girls and Ellen was supposed to go to my in laws to photograph the boys but by the time she arrived they only has 5 minutes to get a few shots, a little disappointing. However, once we arrived at chateau la mer everything ran smoothly. The velvet studio is one of their recommended vendors so bob knew the staff very well and they worked very well together. We asked that we get pictures done as quickly as possible so we might make it to some of our cocktail hour and we ended up making it to the entire hour! I haven't yet seen the proofs but I think we got a lot of great shots. Bob worked with us a lot on the price and we got a great deal.

Easy to work with, THRILLED with proofs;Make sure indicate if you want detail photos (e.g. centerpieces, etc) since those were missed
