Thanks for the above. My daughter will be Senior this coming fall, and I am trying to determine who to take her to for her Senior portraits.
Rebecca doesn't do many senior portraits. She only does a select few each summer. When I called to schedule appointments for my son she didn't have any available. They were all filled by the end of last summer. I assume the same is for this year. You probably wouldn't been able to get an appointment even if you tried.

We had an awful experience- paid to get all our photos on a cd- only got the ones from the wedding not the engagement session- had to take another picture to put in the newspaper. Agree with previous posts- once she has your money she doesn't care. She seams to pick favorites and if you're not one (not sure how to become one) she doesn't care. We were paid in full prior to the wedding- told that we would get our album proof when we got our pictures. It was OVER a month before we got our pictures online - then another month to get the pictures. About a year later saw our 1ST PROOF of the album. I was not satisfied at all- She brought us sample albums and this looked nothing like it. Needless to say finally at just shy of 2 years after our wedding we saw our album. ALSO- at the wedding - she disappears for a long time - of our 150 guests - there are probably only 30 that made it in pictures, im being generous because of coursse she did get the groomsmen and bridesmaids which was 10 total- and she missed very important people - lots of the people at our head table and the all the parent's table. The pictures were ok but not "AMAZING" - I have seen so many of my friends have "AMAZING" pictures since then different photographer. Also all the grooms side of the family said she was rude to them (bridesmaids said same thing)- we only got 3 pics of the groom by himself! She doesn't post all your pictures - she misses a lot- and she can't use the excuse she only posts the "good ones" because she posted several with people's eyes closed- she spends like 10 mins of family pics which is not enough! trust me! she doesn't respond to emails - even before your wedding - it took her a while to get our engagement pics up- we were so disappointed with the service before the wedding we almost cancelled her of course we were a month out so it would of been really hard to get money back and find another photographer. We paid $600 for the cd above pacakge price which was expensive- i think 450 pictures made it... that's an expensive picture!
No excuses she's an unprofessional photographer- i know i am not alone- if you look at when she posts on her blogs and can find that persons wedding date its normally at least 1-2 month before - look at the post and look at the pictures - the pictures normally give the time of the year away or she will take a picture of the invitation.
Just be careful - i thought i did lots of research before picking and clearly i was wrong! If for some reason she picks you to be a "favorite" bride you're ok- but i don't see her picking that many favorite brides!

Ive worked with Rebecca and the previous post is all lies. i know many people that have worked with her and have never experienced the claims being made on this site. People reading this need to recognize the trolls posting these comments are vicious nasty, and unhappy people. i would venture that all the brides making these nasty comments will be divorced before long, or just got married because no one else would mary them. put that in your pipe and smoke it trolls

I approached Rebecca to do our engagements after meeting her at a bridal fair. She seemed genuine and her pictures were natural and beautiful. We exchanged some emails discussing the location and time and then she completely stopped returning my calls and emails. I have not heard from her in a month and a half. And we were wanting to schedule this month. I began asking around to a few couples I know chose her for their wedding photographer. One couple still has not received their album and it's been 18 months of marriage for them. Another couple received their online album in a month, but have not gotten their album in the mail and it's been six months. She seems really nice and her pictures are awesome, but her professionalism is lacking.

These negative posts are absolutely absurd! If you are still waiting on your album, maybe you should start to worry. Rebecca is a perfectionist when it comes to her work. Maybe she had to spend a lot of extra time trying to make you look good. She is in too high of demand that she can pick and choose who she works with. She does not have time to deal with negative people, so if you do not appreciate her work, why shouldn't you be on the bottom of her list. I agree very few unsatisfied customers compared to the ones that are begging for her services. She does wonderful work and knows how to put her subjects at ease. Absolutely recommend her unless you are a difficult person!

My husband and I used Rebecca Devono for our engagement and wedding photos. We were completely impressed by her portfolio while looking for a photographer. As far as our own pictures, I was only disappointed at the cake pictures she took as well as not telling me a piece of my jewelry was crooked in some of the more important photos. I was really happy with everything else though. However, I was very disappointed at her lack of professionalism. One email in particular went an entire month unanswered. It took two months to get our engagement pictures back and there weren't a lot of them to have to edit, etc. I can understand why she is so busy because she is a very talented photographer but I think she may need to re-evaluate her work load and take on less clients if the heavy work load causes extreme wait times. I didn't expect the relief I felt when I had my wedding photos and knew I was done working with her. When you're waiting on something as important as engagement and wedding photos you're at the mercy of the person who took them. We will be using a different photographer for the future. I'm sad because she is wonderful at taking pictures but the business side is sorely lacking. If you don't mind the waiting, I'd use her. If you need more attention, I'd go elsewhere.
I should add that my experience was a while ago... maybe things have changed by now?

I can't begin to explain how disappointed we are in Rebecca Devono's lack of professionalism. We hired her to take photographs of our family. We had to follow up with her on three occassions to retrieve our photos. Well, it turns out it was all a waste of time. The quality of the photos were horrible. She obviously picks and chooses who she performs any post photo touch ups, enhancements, etc. with. We could have done a better job with our iPhone. Additionally, she promised to touch up whichever photos we weren't happy with. We supplied her with a list and then...she dropped off the face of the earth! She won't return emails or calls. She got our money and disappeared.

We used Rebecca's for our daughters reception and the pictured were terrible. She was very rude and hard to work with. For the price we paid I was very disappointed. She also id extremely hard to contact and never returns calls.
Huge disappointment

I'm glad I'm not the only one who had this experience with Rebecca. We used her years ago and it was exactly the same back then. She is almost impossible to get a hold of and schedule with. She is such an airhead. She really proved to be unmotivated and uninspired at my wedding. I thought she would have creative ideas and suggestions but she did not come through. Apparently she only wants to take creative pictures when she thinks they will be used for the next cover of wv weddings magazine! At our wedding she brought along some "assistant" who did nothing! My dad had to help her set up. She is very expensive and I am not overly impressed with our pictures like I thought I would be.
