My experience with Magnolia photography was awful. It started well, Tim, was excited about the project and made a promise for the product. He also had great reviews and that's why I hired him. BTW, this is the first time I am leaving negative review. Tim was supposed to video my event, then edit it for a 3-4 min promo. Product was the promo. He filmed my event in the beginning of September 2016. Today is February 2017 and I didn't receive my promo. Actually, I received nothing, as if my event didn't even happen. After many email exchanges where Tim promised to have it done "in a couple of days" I filed a complaint with PayPal. I submitted to them every email we have exchanged and PayPal is now fighting on my behalf to get my money back. This was not a job badly done. This was a scum, imo. Be aware.Feb 12, 2017VerifiedMagnolia Street Productions's reply
Hi Faye, WOW - Now, you know that you got your video right away, and there is a bit more to the story. Let's review. #1 You got your video in days. PayPal ruled against you, a bit over a week before you left this note here, because you in fact DID receive the video months ago, and you can view or download it from Vimeo. https://vimeo.com/182424061 It has a date stamp. It is still password protected, and you have that password, because I keep my word about your privacy. # 2 Your disappointment started when we both counted on you, Faye. You told me that you were a new author from Russia and poor. You asked that your 2 hour speech about YOU BEING AN AUTHOR to 4 people at a writing conference be cut into a promo to promote your book. I said editing a promo was different from switching the live recording live and delivering it, as I had already done. Promos take a lot of time to watch for each moment in the show, and the cost can be $500 to $5000, based on a $50 per hour editing rate. I offered to edit your promo FROM YOUR NOTES to help a poor, starving author from Russia. This way, making your promo would have taken an hour, and I was willing to give you that. You tell me what words, jokes, winks, laughs and the story you want in 30 seconds - 3 minutes from two hours of talking, and I put them there. Simple. # 3 Money for plane tickets, no time to keep your agreement. Your emails from three different countries over 6 months asked where was the promo, and I asked where were your notes I needed to build it from? Sad that things are not going better for you, and you felt the need to blame me for something that you yourself prevented me from doing. Or things are going quite well for you and you decided to write an untruth because you are bored on an international flight somewhere. I hope you find happiness, I wish you well
For 12 years now Magnolia Street Productions has delivered more than we asked for, and gotten us our video quickly. Tim has been recording at our school for years and always brings his full professional video system with cameras and microphones. In the school shows he is also open to teaching the students and allows some our best to learn how to operate the cameras and switcher. The groups get to hear and see a good recording of themselves, the next day which becomes a fantastic learning tool. We use the DVD's as a school band fundraiser and it has helped us buy instruments and include students on our annual trip to Disneyland. Our school choir and drill team have also used Magnolia Street Productions to document their events. We have all been extremely pleased with the service, and have booked in in advance for our spring show.Mar 2, 2017Magnolia Street Productions's reply
The exciting thing is making a multi camera recording of the musicians and getting it to them the next day so that they can learn from the recording while the show is still fresh in their mind. In school the football team gets training video, and the ballet dancers get a mirror, why not a way for the musicians to see themselves and improve? Thanks, Karen
We are so very pleased and excited to have found Tim Greenwood and his crew from Magnolia Street Productions. They were very professional, using their artistic abilities to capture the music and play for our Christmas Dessert Theatre. They were a real delight to work with and the evening was very successful. Thank you, Tim.Jan 15, 2018Verified

Tim and his team were a pleasure to work with. From the start, he was very clear about what he was able to do for our event, and continued to go above and beyond what we asked of him. The team arrived to our event with plenty of time to set up, and made sure everything ran smoothly. The finished product was wonderful, and he worked diligently to deliver it to our exact specifications. I would recommend Tim and Magnolia Street Productions to anyone looking for a professional, reliable service experience. Thanks to them for all they did for our event!Jul 12, 2017Verified
