My wife and I hired Amber Gardner, d/b/a Amber’s Accents to photograph and videotape our wedding in Feb. 2007. Hiring her was the single biggest mistake of my life. What a nightmare. She totally ripped us off. She misrepresented herself as a professional photographer. We paid her over $4000 for wedding pics and a video of our ceremony. We never got our video, and it took her almost a year to provide us with a few prints of snapshots a 12 year old could have taken with a disposable camera. We had to chase her down for months, hearing excuse after excuse and lie after lie. She finally sent her husband to deliver our book in November of 2007, over nine months after our wedding. The photos that she put in our book were printed @ Wolf Camera the same day they were delivered to us. She never provided us with the digital negatives, which we paid her for. We can’t even take our negatives and get them professionally edited because she refuses all contact. We basically have no wedding pictures. We took her to court in June and were awarded a $15k default judgement. Whatever you do, don't hire this photographer
What was your favorite wedding photo? My favorite picture was when Chad and I were dancing the last dance and he looked up at me and winked, I said to my self that would have been a perfect picture. About a week later Amber contacted me to schedule our meeting to view the images and when we started looking through them I saw that she had caught that moment. I cannot express how much that meant to both of us.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? Amber and her team are wonderful. There were many times that I would be looking around for her and she could see that I was looking and so she would pop out from no where just to let me know that she was around. She was never in the way though.
As far as style I would have to say that she made the best of both situations. My mom wanted several posed family shot as where I wanted all candid. She was able to work both sides.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? I received my bridal and engagement session with my package. I ordered all of my album prints along with my albums from her. She also gives you all of your digital negitives so this helps in saving some money. I did order alot of prints through her though because the quality and price are both great.
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? Amber definantly goes above and beyond. Her passion is in it and you can tell. She is so kind and patient. She knows how to get the job done and how to be firm but never rude. Thats what I loved and that she wasnt scared to be the " bad guy "
