    Liam and Steph shot our wedding in Halifax, we couldn't be happier. We wanted photos that would be non-traditional and different from what you normally see, and they definitely achieved for us. Be patient if you're trying to get ahold of them during wedding season, it may take a little while because they're extremely busy, but I can assure you that they are worth the wait.

    Working with the pair was a delight, from meetings to the day of they are a real pleasure to work with. They really care about the work that they do that the photos they produce! Nothing but praise here.

    Do not hire!

    I booked Applehead Studio for my wedding September 18, 2021, expecting that they would capture our Wedding Day. Liam( a studio photographer and owner) confirmed that Ash & Rich would be at the venue for 4 pm. Sadly, 4:30 pm came around and they still were not there. After many calls, Liam finally answered and said " They aren't coming to shoot the wedding. We've been trying to contact you since 3 pm-11 pm last night". Heartbroken and saddened, I passed the phone to my sister. I could not believe that alternate arrangements had not been made to have a photographer present.
    Liam was unapologetic to say the least. He said that Ash & Rich were exposed to Covid the day before shooting another wedding as weren't wearing masks. Liam made no effort to contact me via my personal phone or email. He also did not contact the venue to let them know nor did attempt to call my fiance. I do not recommend Applehead Studio, horrible experience, poor customer service, didn't show for the wedding and left us without a photographer on one of the most special & important days of of lives. Be smart and hire someone else.

    Applehead Studio Photography's reply:

    I would like to fill in the gaps of the review of your experience with us with the facts you neglected to include.

    After 11 hours of direct contact with someone who was Covid + , the photographers you had booked booked for your wedding, were no longer available. You are correct in stating, for whatever reason, that masks were not worn. That is not something we control at an event.

    This situation was not taken lightly by us and your implication of anything otherwise is simply false.

    Communication with you has been difficult from the beginning. Several month long periods of no communication on contracts, deposits and wedding day details. Your questionnaire was full of answers such as ‘I don’t know’ and ‘I’m not sure’, I’ll let you know“ right up to the day before your wedding.
    The day before your wedding, still without any wedding day details from you, I sent you both an email and a text, pleading with you for a start time for your 5hr collection the next day, or at best, give us an approximate guess on if it was morning, afternoon or evening. An hour later, you replied by email saying the ceremony starts at 4:30 so just show up then. I replied in detail, recommending a 4:00pm start and you simply never replied.
    At 10:30pm the night before your wedding, I was informed of the Covid exposure. At 10:50pm, I sent you a text with my explanation, apologies and the assurance that we would find a replacement photographer. You did not reply.
    We followed up again the next day, the morning of your wedding, both via text and the two email addresses we have for you. You did not reply.
    We had a total of 4 photographers available to shoot for you, some willing to come from as far as New Brunswick. You did not reply.
    We followed up with you every two hours at the number you left as the answer to one of the few questions you did answer on the details form that asked, “What is the best number to reach you?” You did not include your fiancé’s contact information and you use your middle name on social media channels and as such were impossible to find there. Through all of this, you still did not reply.
    We have confirmation through our communication system that you both received and opened email from us that was sent to you at both email addresses, on the day of your wedding. We still received no reply.
    At 4:31pm, my phone rang. Three different people from your wedding called me. I can only speak to one line at a time. That was you. The other call went to voicemail and the third just rang, because I was on the line w you. Also received from you was your text and Facebook message that read ‘SOS’. You called me at 4:31 and were speaking to me. Your version of how this happened is simply untrue. You reached me immediately and when we hung up, I then spoke to an unnamed person who simply yelled at me for not showing up. I answered all calls, immediately and explained the same story to everyone.
    As I was told you were too emotional to deal with this, your sister called me and for 10 minutes straight, explained in great detail, how I single handedly ruined your wedding day and all you had were ‘shitty iPhone pictures’. This is in contrast to the message we received from a wedding photographer who contacted us to let us know they were at your wedding, with their gear, and were able to step in and help out.
    The ripple effect of this exposure reached many weddings across Nova Scotia with many vendors having to be tested due to direct/close contact. Two of those weddings affected were ones we were shooting. Both were handled the exact same way. One wedding was quickly resolved by 7am Saturday morning. Yours, due to lack of any communication on your part, was not resolved. Please do not confuse my frustration for lack of empathy but you’ve taken zero responsibility for your prolonged and continued poor communication and have yet to acknowledged all of the messages we sent you and the efforts made to secure a photographer. You replied to absolutely nothing that was sent to you in the 24hrs prior to your wedding and then blame me for poor communication and service. You were provided the same service as everyone else, but for whatever reasons, chose not to reply.

    Wonderful photographers!

    Ash and Rich were so wonderful! We couldn’t have asked for better people to be there on our big day! Our photos are absolutely gorgeous! They were so great at capturing relaxed photos that didn’t look too posed, abs just the right amount of posed photos that you need!

    We selected Liam as our photographer and from our initial meeting, we fell in love with his style and were extremely excited for him to capture our day. He is very personable and we had a great time with him during our engagement shoot and our wedding, felt like hanging around a good friend.

    He is very quick to respond to any questions (and I had many!) and made us feel completely at ease the whole time. We are waiting to see the rest of our pictures now, but the previews we have seen are stunning and completely capture the feeling of the day.

    We chose to do his photo booth (aka crazy booth) at our reception and I would highly recommend doing this if you have a fun crowd coming to your wedding. Everyone continues to talk about how fun it was and how excited they are to see all of the pictures!

    I would recommend Liam (and Steph) to anyone who is looking for a unique, non-traditional coverage of your wedding where you will definately not have pictures that look like your typical wedding photo ops.

    Liam was amazingly accommodating and provided an excellent service. The photos were very well done and I have received nothing but praise on them!
