I just posted on another board about Celebration Studios and whatever you do, please stay away from them. They are a total nightmare to deal with. 

It took us almost 10 weeks after our wedding to get our proofs. They said we'd have our thank you cards within 2 weeks of telling them which picture we wanted - and it took nearly 5 weeks!  To date, we still don't have our wedding album or 2 parent albums (September 30th was our 1 year anniversary!).  They ignore my emails and voice mails and never call back. 

 One of my friends used Steven Tackeff and her pictures and album were gorgeous...and she hasn't gone through any of the problems we are going through (she got married after me and already has everything back!!).  A co-worker of mine used Milton Gil and absolutely loved them.

I have only had wonderful experiences with Celebration Studios.  You may want to check them out for yourself.  I know many friends who have used them and received their products and they were all beautiful.  I was not put off by one person's opinion who I no nothing about.

I suggest you check them out.

I, as well as a friend that referred me, have had a bad experience w/ Celebration Studios.  I would stay away from them.

If money is not necessarily an issue, I would definitely check out Milton Gil.  That is who we wanted to go with, but just wasnt' in our budget. Their work is fantasic, they are small and personal, and believe me, that makes a big difference.

I would not recommend Celebration Studios.  My best friend and I used them.  I got married 13 months ago and my best friend got married 2 years ago.  Neither one of us have received our albums or digital prints.  I would never have used them if I'd have known this!  $3200 down the drain!

I also used Celebaration Studios and was less than happy with the serice I got. Unfortunatley the photographers are awesome but the studio is a disaster...after almost 2 years and a zillion phone calls ans trips to the studio I have all my stuff. If you are unsure check the Better Business Bureau...they have a ton of negative letters on them.

We used Chris and Suzanne LoBue from CLB Photography. They are a husband and wife team and I am absolutely thrilled with the photos. Check out their website www.clbphoto.com and see if they are a good fit for you. They were out of my price range, but I splurged...and now I am so happy I did!

Wow, carrine!  You are right, their pics are beautiful!  If you don't mind me asking, about how much did they charge and what did it include?

Thanks!

Carrine those pictures are really beautiful. I'm also curious how much you paid. We are having trouble finding a photographer we like and can afford.
