What videographer and photographer did you choose and if you've already had your wedding, were you happy with them? As far as videography goes, I have talked to Andy Hutchinson from Video Magic on the phone (their website is www.videomagiconline.com ), and he seems really professional. He also sent me some samples which were outstanding. I haven't seen many photography websites, so I don't have any clue about photographers. I was considering going with Disney Photography. Any opinions are greatly appreciated!

Hi Elisabeth!

I used Jon Thomas photography. It was once of the names on the Disney list at the time. They were very expensive but the albums were beautiful. The only thing I would have chanaged was the number of proofs we received. I can't remember the eaxct number taken but I seemed to recall wishing there were more there.

My videographer was my husband's aunt. She offered to do it for us as a amateur. And, while we really would have liked a professional video, it was a great cost saver.

Good luck!
:D

We used Disney for the photography and A MAgic Moment for video. Disney was not offering Video at the time. A Magic Moment was the company used by Regis and Kathy Lee a few years back when they did the Valentine's week of weddings. We love watching the video (yes even the DH watches it). David, the primary videographer, had just returned from his own honeymoon when he filmed ours.

Yes, Randy has a web page but I cannot think of it off the top of my head. I had to put a new harddrive on my computer about a month ago and I lost most of my links. But there is a link from the unoffical wedding guide under vendors! He is awsome. His prices are great and you get to keep your negatives!

using Damon Tucci. We are not having a videographer (other than my brother in law.)

Damon's Website is www.damontucciphotography.com. He used to work for Disney Photographic Services but recently went out on his own. He is a super super nice guy and I really love his style.

Used Luken's Photography - came out great! I highly recommend. He was a pleasure to work with too.
Used Artistic Video - not "perfect" but came out nice & the price was great.
Let me know if you want more details.

We used Christopher Yates photography in Winter Park. www.christopheryates.com We looked at photographers in all price ranges (I know we looked into Jon Thomas and Disney Photography), but once we saw Christopher Yate's work, we had a tough time going with anyone else. They were definitely on the higher end of the price range, but well worth it. I remember budgeting *way* less for photography, but am soooo happy that we splurged a bit here. This is *the* documentation that you'll have of your special day and the once place I"d recommend splurging over all others.

He had some wonderfully creative ideas and all of the photos turned out just spectacular. We ended up having two wedding albums made because we had such a tough time choosing from the proofs. We did not want a videographer because the bright lights from the two photographers were enough outside. My husband and I have been to so many weddings where you are out on the dance floor and the videographers are following the bride and groom around like it's an eyewitness news team. There was just too much light and intrusion for our taste. I think that they can really change the mood and feel of a wedding. Any more bright lights would have spoiled the atmosphere that we worked so hard to create with Disney. We had lots of family members who video taped the ceremony and long portions of the reception which was more than enough for us. We took a few of those video tapes and had them spliced together with music at a local videographer (and for *much* less than hiring a videographer for the whole affair) after we returned home from our honeymoon.

I am using Randy Chapman for Photography. I will give a full review after my wedding on August 24, 2001 and post pictures. But I can say that he has been WONDERFUL to work with so far, and he is the sweetest person! He has helped me so much in the planning of my wedding, and has even helped me reach some of my vendors in Orlando. He has been great! And his prices are among the best out there. His website is: http://www.chapmanphotography.com

For Videography, I am using Patrick Lyons. His website is http://www.lyonsvideo.com . Like Randy, he has great prices as well. And he and Randy have done many weddings together, and are used to work in concert. Patrick is also very nice, and I have enjoyed my contact with his as well.

As for Disney Photography... we are using DPS to have the Magic Kingdom In-Park Bridal Photo Session prior to our wedding. I've seen pictures from this, and they are beautiful!! I have also seen photos that DPS has done for weddings, and I know people who have had DPS have loved them. They are a little on the pricey side, I will say, but using them DOES count towards your minimums!! And DPS now offers Videography, and I know one Disneymooner who used them and absolutely loved her video.

Broadway Fotographics did a great job for us at a wonderful price. We had the photos before we left to come back home - the photographer had them developed and delivered to our resort about 4 days later. We also got to keep all of our negatives at no extra cost.

We used Disney Photographic for our wedding two years ago & the pics were fabulous. That day, Rev. Tim told my DH that we were lucky and had the best photographer that Disney had on staff. I don't remember his name off-hand, but his assistant was his cousin (or some other relative). If anyone needs his name, I can dig through my paperwork and try to find out for you - just email me.

We choose Disney mainly since it counted towards our minimum expenditure and we were trying hard to keep the cost of the wedding to Disney's required minimum (using an outside vendor would've added alot more $$$ to our total). So, we didn't even look anywhere else - but we were thrilled with the results!

for us!

We wanted one stop shopping with our wedding.. and didn't look outside.. but we got Mike Strickland from DPS and he is AMAZING.. not only is he a hugely talented photographer.. but he also is HILARIOUS :) A great personality to have around on your wedding day :)

He had his assitant Chris there and he was awesome too.. we have wonderful photos.. we love all of them (we had Mike for the Magic Kingdom photos the day after too.. we had a great time that morning!) ..

You can see some of our photos on our website.. or on the disney wedding website (we are featured wedding couple - "A Family Affair" :) )

and of course DPS counts towards your minimum..

We're using LP Video for both our photography and video. I cried when I watched the video they sent me!

They have a website. I think it's www.lp-video.com

I might be wrong though. You can find it on Andrea's unofficial wedding website.

I still don't have my pictures, and I don't get calls or emails back from him. I've tried to be patient until this month. Now I am just FREAKED! I know he quit his business around May sometime, and that is all I know. HAs anyone else here used Chris recently, and do you have current contact information about him? I really need help!!!!

I'm sorry I can't help you with new contact info or anything...

Have you contacted the local Better Business Bureau in Orlando (or whatever city his business was in)?

Did you already pay him for everything? Did you have any kind of contract with him? Those things might help you legally (though it may not get your pictures...which would be devastating).

You might consider sending some kind of certified letter "demanding" a response within a certain time frame...something to get some kind of response.

I really hope you get some answers soon!

We also used Chris McCallister - Southern Cross Photography and have been waiting for 9 months. He is out of business and says that he is going to deliver all photo's but have given up hope. He does not return phone calls or emails. WHAT A BUMM. Do not ever use him for such an occassion. He has ruined my happiest day!!! There is nothing else that I can say but I will find him to get our negatives. That is the least that he can do - If you can't provide the finished product because you are broke then at least give the people back their negatives so they can go elsewhere to a true professional!!!

This is definitely worth of a bump-- I hope that the two of you can get this situation resolved. I cant even pretend to understand what you both must be going through. I would literally be ready to duke it out with someone. Have you tried calling the better business bureau? If I were you I would call the Orlando Police Department and file a claim with them.... they might be able to get someone who works small claims cases to help you out. You definitely paid for something that you didn't get. I'm serious-- this is a big deal and shouldn't be taken lightly.... I'm no legal counsel so don't take me as one-- but I would do something similar to that. Get those negatives-- its the least you deserve!!

Chris was my photographer at my wedding on 4-14-07. He told me that he was moving to Ft. Worth Texas the following day. I have not heard from him either and am seriously pissed. I have contacted an investigator in Texas & I want to pursue him since he was paid in full. I was trying to find out if other newlyweds were in the same boat & would want to team up to track him down. Please contact me and let me know. I have also found out his home in Deltona went into foreclosure about a month before my wedding. He is obviously in trouble. My email address is cyounggreen@afh.net.

with a private investigator (we hired one when we had a fraud case on our hands as well) you can find out his social security number and really go toward him. I seriously recommend prosecuting-- i feel terrible for you all!! :hug:

Let us know how it's going. We will all be around, I'm sure, to listen to a venting session, or to throw a victory party! I sincerely hope it's the latter!

Stan from STVS is not a Disney videographer, he is an outside vendor.

I didn't have a videographer at my wedding, but I haven't heard of anyone having a problems using an outside vendor (Stan or otherwise) at Disney.

We are using Stan from STVS & Randy Chapman.

I think Stan does a nice job (from the preview DVD he sent and clips on the website) for a much better price than Disney. I guess everything depends how long you need him and what you want. We are having him at our ceremony (2 hours of coverage) and then he is returning for our Dessert Party that night.

I wouldn't trust him, if I were you. If he was really intending to give you your packages, he would have done so already. Or at least he would have been communicating with you about the delay.

Did you pay him via cash, or credit card? If it was via credit card, contact the credit card company for a charge back.

Email him back, ask for a phone number, and/or an address. You need to know WHERE he is, especially if you need to file court papers.

Good luck!

Misty Miotto is the best photographer I've seen. If you are even considering her, get with her. She and her husband are great and took amazing photos.

09-12-2007, 12:56 PM
We used Randy as our photographer, and as everybody says, he his amazing. We have used Kennedy Video production and frankly even thou they are nice people, I would not recommend them . It's been 5 months since my wedding and still no video. Everytime we e-mailed them it would take very long for them to response, that is after the wedding of course, and they would give us some lame excuse like they were out of town, or they are "artsy" people who wanna do things perfect!!!! We were told 6 to 8 weeks:headache:
When I once spoke to Kathleen she told me that the day of the wedding she told my husband it would be more like 10 to 12 weeks. As if you remember what the videographer tellls you on your wedding day:confused3 .
So for those who haven't hired them yet I would suggest a good discution on how long it will take.

They were ok but nothing fantastic.

And for all you who are having problems with the mccallister guy....:hug:

I do have his last address when he lived in Florida however, he has sold that home & no longer lives there. I should start a new thread on "Deadbeat photographers". Anyway 3 of the couples have teamed up with me & we have hired an investigator (as well as consulted several lawyers). Hopefully we have our picture disks very soon.

Anyway 3 of the couples have teamed up with me & we have hired an investigator (as well as consulted several lawyers). Hopefully we have our picture disks very soon.


The way you and the other couple are being treated is disgraceful. I don't know he can sleep at night. I really hope something can be sorted out for you all, and SOON.

It is me again. Still no pictures. There are 9 couples that I am aware of that Chris will not respond to. I have not heard from him since 8/28 when he said he would send my pictures out that weekend. Nothign came & now he is unresponsive again.

way to go on the investigator. DH and I had a problem where someone had taken some of our money and ran without the service (however it was a Plymouth Prowler worth 20,000+ grand) and we hired an investigator and was able to track him down. I hope it works out for you!!

Just remember that you don't want to say too much on here because hes probably googling his name and finding boards like this. If he knows you know where he is-- he can run.

Best of luck to you and the other couples. I hope you get your pictures soon.

So my investigator contacted Chris & there have been positive results. Two couples have received their complete photo packages. My package is in the mail & I hope to get it soon. Another couples photos are at the lab and progress is being made. Of course my investigator has to hound him weekly to keep him on task. But there is hope when one is presistent.:yay:

:dance3: I am so happy for you! It looks like getting an investigator was a great move. Thanks for keeping us updated on your search. I hope your pictures come out beautiful.

just wanted to let everyone know that i just booked sage with starfruit productions...i am really happy with him thus far, he is SUPER quick to respond to emails and we get to provide our own music!!! i was against using a videographer, up until about 3 days ago when my best friend told me that he and his kids LOVE to watch their wedding video and it was the best thing that they could have spent their money on...

Hello,

I saw your posts about Chris McCallister with Southern Cross Photography on disboard.com. My husband and I had hired Chris for our wedding in March 2007 and he went bankrupt, closed his shop in Winter Park and called me to tell me he was moving to Texas. I heard from him intermittently that he was putting our pictures in the mail, etc. but he did not deliver. My parents lived in Oviedo, FL at the time, but we moved to Chicao and were not able to pursue this other than call him and email him.

I see you and others that received the same fate, were you able to get a hold of him and your pictures? Would you be able to share any information on how to locate him, it would be a miracle if we could get our wedding pictures almost 3 years later. I would really appreciate any information you can provide.

We're going to be using my dear friend from High School Lindsay Moretti of Lindsay Brynn Photography. Here's a link to her work for anyone interested: http://www.lindsaybrynn.com. We're also going to be doing the MK-Epcot Photo Shoot as well, so we will be using Disney's Photographers for that.
