Introduction: I use professional Nikon cameras and lenses that shoot at 24-45 Megapixels. I have professional lighting and backdrops too. My fee includes the timeframe for which you hire me to shoot, the time to edit the images, and the travel time to your event. I deliver the digital images free of charge via my Dropbox account. You can download these images and send them to Shutterfly or Snapfish to have them developed. Working with mean you get to choose the images you want developed and you avoid upcharges other photographers pass on to you when they include photos as a package. Compare my wedding photography rates to others. You are typically paying huge mark up fees under the guise of a "wedding photo package". You are missing out on the fun of sharing the digital images with others and selecting the images you want developed into photos. I will walk you through the process, I will provide you with the highest resolution photos available. I will save you a great deal of money. I do weddings, engagements, bridal showers, baby showers, maternity photos, headshots, and portraits. I also shoot for graduations, birthday parties, family gatherings, anniversaries, and sports photography. I do corporate and public events from the simple to the complex.

Pictures are beautiful and captured all the special moments of our entire wedding weekend. The photographer was easy to work with, listened to our wants and needs, and really cared about us!

I hired Richard to do my my husband's 40th birthday party pictures and videos and his work is worse than a kid taking pictures. He didn't do any of the request I made. All the memories are ruined now. I'm so disappointed with his work. Most of the pictures are dark and you can barely see the faces. He captured my performance video from behind. I mean who would do that. Even a non photographer has a basic knowledge of taking video from front. He took my money and not even responding to my messages now. Don't hire him.

Details: Birthday party • 50 - 99 guests • Indoors • Digital or online download

Columbia Event Photography's reply
These are offensive comments. I sent her 200 edited photos. I did not realize that one of 200 was not edited. I was hired to take photos. I am not a videographer. The performance she referred to was a brief video I took 45 minutes after my hired timeframe. She also reviewed some of the photos prior to forwarding which is not my standard policy. She posted this message with less than 20 hours for me to respond.
