Reading the last review...feels like our identical story...which makes me feel sick to my stomach!Sent on 05/01/2012
We first found Rhembein through another photographer, After looking through all of her work we were pretty stoked she wasnt booked for our wedding so we booked her right away...I now wish SO BADLY that we would have taken a couple extra minutes to read the reviews on her business..if you would even call it that.
She was very responsive to all of our e-mails and calls when we were first meeting up to give her our deposit. at this point in time we still felt happy with our decision to go with her...great communication up until the wedding day. There was times where i felt she was fun and was getting great shots then there were times where i felt like she was trying to push us to get everything done so she could leave by 10:00 garder toss, bouquet, cake etc etc. the last thing i wanted on my wedding day was my photographer chirping in my ear trying to speed up the night so she could leave. After the wedding day was over communication (email, text, calls ) came to a hault.
I was told 4-6 weeks would be what we were looking for as a time frame to recieve our photos. A few weeks later when it was obviously convenient for her to send us an email she assured us she would send the peeks and i quote "this afternoon"....8 days later we recieved an email saying she was going to her friends to send them to us and that they must have been kicked back...SURE.. We finally got the peeks and i sent her an email back saying thank you and also gave her our address which she had asked for. This is when it went from a little bit irritating to extremely frusturating and thinking i wasnt ever going to have those photos of our special day...I sent 4 different emails with our address (even made sure to check that they ALL sent properly) she then sends me an email pretending she hadnt heard from me at all and was still wondoring if i was going to give her my address and that she was very busy, out of telephone range, done for the season, getting a new computer and that the pictures would be in the mail with a tracking number to follow shortly after....I checked the mail every day, sent her 5 more emails asking her for the tracking number OR ANY INFORMATION AT ALL!!! after waiting 15 weeks feeling completely sick about the entire situation we recieved a ridiculous email sent from "her friend" at 2:05 in the morning saying that she was ill and that she sent the photos already but they must have got lost in the mail...OH and she lost the tracking number for those too conveniently enough....
"her friend" then said she was going to the post office to re-send our photos...what a joke..DO NOT BOOK HER FOR YOUR WEDDING!!!!!!!!!!
The photos turned out alright but it was definately not worth the stress. I hope she learns from these reviews if she has any chance of carrying on with her business because that was complete GARBAGE.

Nice in person, especially when signing the contract. Then you just don't hear from her, nor can you get ahold of her. Doesn't return emails or phone messages. Quick to cash the cheque though.Sent on 10/01/2011
It was actually a surprise when she actually showed up.
She's simply either a fraud or lacking some really common communication skills.
After all said and done, results are decent but not worth the anxiety.

My experience is just like every other one on here. Great communication right until you sign the contract and pay. Then she vanishes. She never had the time to do our engagement photos and we live out of province and were only able to do it at certain times when we were in town - but even with months in advance notice she could never seem to make it work. We finally had them done and we hated them all. We were a little worried for the wedding photos but kept looking at her site and the photos she had shown us and though it would be fine. She also took forever to get us our engagement photos and didn't respond - we should have fired her then - but nope. She did our wedding, she was rude to the wedding party, and took like 0 pics of the girls getting ready. I had asked her to take a photo of my wedding dress hanging and she said no. After the wedding she sent sneak peeks right away- then went missing for 6 weeks. Thats when I read all these reviews and started to freak out. After the 8 weeks had gone by that she said she would get the photos to us in - and she still hadnt responded to my, probably 100 emails, I told her I was going to take legal action. she responded immediately and we got our photo disk only because I said I want them now and I am coming to pick them up myself. We still have not recieved our wedding album and our pictures were not that great at all. We were very dissapointed. She didnt pay attention to the little details - like fluffing out my dress etc. so most of the pics its all scrunched up on the ground and looks horrible. She barely took any of the photos we asked for. She is a horrible business person- DO NOT FALL FOR HER LIES!!! DONT BOOK SHE IS A BIG BIG SCAM! Her price is not worth the stress. I didnt sleep for weeks worrying about all this. Horrible way to start our life as newlyweds. She is MY ONLY REGRET of our wedding. I hope her business is shut down.... Find someone else - she's not worth it I promise you.Sent on 27/11/2012

Had my photos done for engagement/wedding by Gillian. Was not 100% happy with the outcome... pictures were not HORRIBLE, but my gf also took some pics on her own DSLR for fun and honestly some of my friends pics are in frames and not the "professional" ones. My photos were NOT like what was on her website.Sent on 01/11/2012
She always seems to come up with an excuse why she can't follow thru... Rescheduled my engagement shoot several times to the point where I missed the fall season (which I wanted for photos) all together (ie: kids are sick, weather is not supposed to be nice even tho it turned out BEAUTIFUL she never called to see if we still wanted to go ahead with it etc).
Took many weeks longer than she quoted to actually get my photos on a disk and I MADE her bring them to me as I was so fed up and did not want them mailed in hopes of eliminating another possible excuse (lost in mail?)... she had her boyfriend bring them.
I would not recommend this photographer to anyone... My mum and I were actually crossing our fingers that she would even show up on the day of the wedding - not something you want to be worrying about.
She did show up with her extra photographers and was fine on the day of the wedding but I missed a lot of the shots I wanted due to her saying there was not enough time and not pulling us aside to take photos (ie: wanted some sunset photos after dinner - never got them and we were so preoccupied I didn't even notice until it was too late)
Hiring this photographer was THE ONLY REGRET I HAVE looking back on my wedding day. I have photos, pics are fine, but not what I had imagined.
Do your research and honestly, pay just for an engagement session with ANY photog to see if you like them and their work before you book!!!!!
Good Luck all....
