    Absolutely amazing team to work with, I had wedding day issues and Dawn stepped up and got the job done. Bill he was always there to get a shot. These photographers had the best energy and helped make our day complete in ways they didn't even need to. We thank you both from the bottom of our hearts.

    We are missing one pic that we really wanted. They didn't know how to pose us. Too many dups I would never recommend to anyone. They gave us no recourse. Out of 150 photos we have about fourth that we can use?

    Bill was excellent--we were able to identify my needs clearly and he delivered head shots that were perfect. He also made sure that we both high resolution and regular resolution versions in order to use the photos for both print and electronic distribution. The session was professional, yet comfortable. He was able to provide the finished photographs just a few hours later. I plan on using him for future work as well. You will not be disappointed!

    William and Dawn photographed our wedding on June 18, 2015 and they did an amazing job! They were very professional, yet very personable and caring. We didn't know what shots we wanted but they knew exactly what to do...almost like photographers and wedding planners in one...seriously! We would have been lost without them. Thanks so much William and Dawn!! Mike and LaDonna

    Behr|Richardson is a creative and professional photography firm. Bill and Dawn were friendly and thorough from the first phone call, carefully asking pertinent questions, soliciting our ideas, and showing us locations in person well in advance of the shoot. The day of the shoot was completely effortless for us, as they had everything prepared and told us exactly what to do. And they remained equally attentive all the way through the editing process, checking for our response to the various touch-ups and shots. We are very pleased and would recommend them to anyone looking for a personal experience with photographers with creative eyes and a professional approach.

    Sorry that this is a book, but I wanted to detail everything so you could have a full view of my interaction with William Behr and Dawn Richardson. Not just a 1-star spam because he didn't deliver prints on time or something that could be fixed. Please read to the end BEFORE considering contacting. I contacted Behr Richardson Photography about two months ago to plan an event for July 5th. I offered to pay their day rates and sell the photos as part of video packages //or// he could take on sales himself. At the start of the conversation he was interested in selling packages. In describing these kinds of events in person I said something to the effect, "At these local events there can be up to 100 participants, I can send you the schedule that we used for the last event, for this one it's an in-house competition and we'll have less people, the exact number will be given by *Event Manager* closer to the start date." (The last event we did was scheduled over the course of two days and have 100+ participants [This one is half a day. Big Clue that it isn't huge] ) He was fine with that. On May 17, we visit at the venue and take some test shots, this is the start of our agreement when he verbally commits "We'll be there" *One month later* On June 22nd, he received the schedule of events for July 5th. *9 Days later* On July 1st, we have an e-mail saying " Looking forward to Sunday!" from William Behr. *2 Days later. 2 DAYS BEFORE SHOWTIME* At 8:11PM: I call him to make sure that he is good to go, I'm bringing a professional backdrop in for his second shooter to do portraits on. we talk about the opportunity to cross-sell or promote, and he mentions that he wants to charge a flat $50.00 per //Person// irrespective of how many times they compete. I point out that doesn't make sense since some people compete once, while others can compete 7 times. He then says "Ok we'll make it work..." we then talk about some other information such as e-mail lists to promote to the customers on July 4. at 9:26pm I get a text saying: "I Just copied you on an e-mail to *Event Manager* Feel free to call me. We are hugely disappointed in the misrepresentation of the number of contestants and not being provided an email list until today. That leaves us no time to contact parents to promote the photography. We have never been misled like this before. I Should have TOTALLY asked *Event Manager* to sign a contract stipulating the number of contestants and the time frames for being given email addresses. That was my bad for not getting a contract signed. We always do with our weddings and clearly should have with this event. I wish we could make it work it work but we can't under the circumstances that *Event Manager* has put us in. I started to call you but thought it best that I put my justification in writing to you. So Sorry." //End of message// The email reads: //Start of message// *EVENT MANAGER*, I am just now able to look at the contestant email list you sent today. We are hugely disappointed. It was represented to me that there was going to be approximately 100 contestants. With only 36 contestants, there is not nearly the income potential we were led to believe there would be. We will be hiring an employee, spending more than 9 hours of our both of our time on Sunday on a holiday weekend PLUS our editing, image posting time and order processing. Also, not being provided the email list of contestant families until 1:26 pm today, there is no time to promote the photography to the parents. *EVENT MANAGER*, we cannot make this a profitable business opportunity. Had we have known there would only be 36 contestants and had we known we wouldn't have time to contact the parents ahead of time to promote the photography packages for potential sales we would not have agreed to handle the photography. I am sorry but there is no way we can make this work due to being misled about the number of contestants and not being provided an email list in time to adequately promote the photography. Regretfully, Bill Behr //End of message So I stay up until around 2am finding out how I'm going to cover this event with photos. (it's now the morning of the July 3rd). He even tried calling me at 9:58 and asking on the phone "Hey were you going to call me?" while I was busy trying to replace the void that he left LESS THAN 36 HOURS FROM SHOW TIME! I've worked in Live TV broadcast and Live Sports Broadcast on a local, regional, and national level - for ABC, NBC, and ESPN2. And before that I worked with some pretty amateur gangs as we were figuring out our niche in the world. This is by far the most unprofessional and disrespectful interaction I have //ever// had with someone. He had all the information on June 22 of the exact numbers of participants that he said he would look over. He instead waits until July 3rd to bail on us - citing in written communication he is in a helpless position put there by the event manager. But on the phone at 8:11 PM yesterday after I talked with him about cross-selling photos or video packages, he said he would "make it work" Do not trust. Do not Contact. Do not Hire. the photos I saw looked good. but if the person behind the camera willing to leave you hanging and bail out just before the curtain raises, it doesn't really matter all that much, now does it? The Right Answer, Mr. Behr, is to pick up the phone on June 22nd, and say "I don't know if this is worth my time in it's present form, Can we work something out." Because in business you make things win-win. It's all a negotiation. I wanted you to succeed just as much as myself. You don't just give up and quit. I would have been happy to pay your day rate if you had just Picked. Up. The. Phone. but you Didn't. You explained that "You were really busy editing other shoots and haven't had the chance to look at the schedule until now." The show must go on. Now and in the future, without you. Good day.

    I had a great experience using Richardson Photography. Bill called on the same day as my thumbtack posting and we set an appointment. Bill is an accomplished photographer and in just a few minutes he had the head shot photo I was looking for. I have posted it on my linked in and facebook and received many, many nice compliments. Some of my close friends said it was the best picture of me ever. Good job Bill I appreciate all that you did with the wardrobe suggestions and your superb talent. I was very pleased and so was my wife and all my friends. I will be recommending you to others. Thanks again. Richard

    Bill took professional headshots for about 20 people in our office. He worked with each individual to get the "right" shot and make them feel comfortable. He was very easy to work and extremely professional. His rates were reasonable and was able to be flexible on timing and date. I would recommend Behr & Richardson photography to anyone. Thanks again!

    First of all, I had hired another photographer before William and Dawn. I was very dissatisfied with her lack of professionalism. That was not the case with William and Dawn. The first time I met them we talked for almost 3 hours. They were super easy to get along with and talk to. Second, my husband and I aren't exactly photogenic people. We aren't bad looking we just don't like having our picture taken. We also don't like showing emotion in front of strangers. We were married at the Justice of the Peace on Friday and had the Reception on Saturday. William came to both and Dawn was our second shooter on Saturday. William and Dawn were so great they helped create those wonderfull memories you look back on. For instance, we didn't really do our "first kiss" so William asked us to do it again. We were nervous. Anywho, they took many wonderful pictures. They were where they needed to be to get the shots, but weren't invasive while they got them. It was a joy to work with them. They were always prompt. I got my pics the exact time they were promised. Everytime I needed to speak to them they were available. They are also very decently priced. I hope to never have to go through with another marriage, but if I do I totally already have a photographer.

    I hired Bill for head shot photos. I was so impressed with the entire process. He was very responsive and professional. He took time to make sure I was comfortable with the choices we made. The final photos were made available to me within 24 hours of the shoot. The results were fantastic and I could not be happier with the photos! I would recommend Bill to any of my friends or family. The whole experience was great!

    I was extremely pleased with the work that Bill did for me. Both the studio session and an outdoor session produced some excellent images. Bill was easy to work with. I especially appreciated his relaxed demeanor and his obvious competence. I am a life-long amateur phohtographer myself and use pretty much the same equipment Bill uses. His turn-around times were excellent and he always kept me informed about status and schedules. I simply could not be more pleased with the quality and value Bill provided and look forward to working with him again. Chuck Ervin Fort Worth, Texas
