    Gorgeous Photos, Excellent Creative Direction!

    Carolyn was fantastic for our engagement photoshoot and for our wedding day photos! She gave excellent creative direction for the photographs and was a team sport when the weather turned into a rainstorm. Her photos are beautiful and she is super kind and awesome! Highly recommend!

    Best Wedding Photographer

    Making sure Carolyn was available for my wedding date before booking my venue was the best decision I made. She had a very creative eye and is super organized. We had absolute blast with her on our wedding day, highly recommend booking her!

    Amazing experience

    Carolyn makes you feel so comfortable and she listened so well to our needs. We appreciated having a professional who would guide us through photos. It’s hard to connect mind and body at times she’s really good we making the process so enjoyable. We cannot wait to get our photos back from her. She was so great to work with and from the little previews she gave us we are excited to see the final products and any sneak peeks in our future.

    Carolyn is awesome! She is very friendly, knows her angles and isn't afraid to tell you what she's wants. She provides tons of photos, along with an amazing experience. She is also very reasonably priced what for what you get! Would highly recommend her

    Horrible Experience

    We met with Carolyn and went over her contract, prices, and everything. All seemed great so we decided to go ahead and book Carolyn. We had spoke about the date and she said that she was free for us. We signed the contract and emailed it to her. She signed it and returned it to us. Much later, she emailed us and told us that she agreed to do someone else's wedding and we couldn't book her anymore, after we already had a signed contract from her. Obviously she is unreliable and I wouldn't recommend her to anyone.

    Carolyn Budreski Photography's reply:

    Hi Ryan,

    I'm sorry that you are so upset - this is my first 1* review in 12 years of business!

    When we sat down, I explained that I always offer first right of refusal to the first couple who inquired about a date. In this case, I had one couple who inquired before you.

    Meeting you was absolutely lovely, and I was excited that you chose me to photograph your day. I'm sorry that you feel that I responded "much later" (From Mon, 30 Sep, 15:02 to Wednesday 02Oct 09:33am - Less than 48 hours later). I discovered that the initial couple had in fact decided to book the date, with deposit, but that their email had filtered into the wrong folder.

    I immediately emailed to let you know, as our agreement had not been executed with a deposit yet. I even offered to help find a suitable replacement photographer for you.

    I'm sorry if you are hurt, angry, and lashing out at me with a negative review.

    All the best to you on your big day....

    Carolyn

    Great experience with Carolyn!

    I loved working with Carolyn.
    She was so attentive, helpful and made a point make sure she could connect with me before our shoots and even took the time to discuss multiple different options with me which was great because I like to have ALL the details.
    She is so professional and personable, my husband and I felt very comfortable working with her and felt confident trusting in her to get the shots we wanted.
    I can't say enough good things about her, I would definitely recommend Carolyn.

    Amazing photographer

    We hired Carolyn as our photographer for our wedding and I am very happy we did. The pictures turned out amazing and we got double the shots then what we expected for a great price. Carolyn stays focused on the job not wasting any time and stayed very behind the scenes during the ceremony catching some amazing shots. She even added the personal touch of a thank you card with our USB stick which is cleverly designed as a little camera. I definitely recommend hiring Carolyn Budreski.

    A fun professional photographer!

    Seriously she is amazing! She was easy to communicate with, full of awesome ideas, made sure to get shots that we wanted, which was a massive list. And to add some fun ones of her own. Will definitely be using her again for other photoshoots. Very professional.

    Carolyn Budreski Photography's reply:

    Thank you again for trusting me with your memories!!
