Recently I had the displeasure of hiring an unreliable, unprofessional photography service. I thought I would share my opinion so others may not make the same mistake i did. DO NOT HIRE Mias Photography Mivian Sanchez. She is unprofessional, will not fix her mistakes, and will give you the run around. Mivian said she would fix the photos in writing and later changed her mind. Hire a reputable, established company and review every detail. Make sure the person is incorporated. Do not trust your precious memories with scam artist like Mivian Sanchez.
1) I paid upfront for photos that were distorted and cropped disproportionately. Background photos includeded the top of someone's head. My intimate wedding photos had a background of a scalp. Photos were stretched out. My bad - Lesson Learned. I just want to share this with others so that they can avoid the pitfalls and frustrations I have been dealing with for the past 3 months.
2) Also make sure you check to see how your photographer will remedy fixing bad photos. Put that in the contract. And check for CLEAR delivery date to avoid tracking a person down who is unwilling to finish the job. Also put in the contract that you want a linked file or photos that were used for your album on a CD.
3) Review the album in front of them and let them know both in writing and verbally what was wrong. Again just sharing obvious stuff.
