Brett Matthews Photography — Buyer beware!

Brett Matthews was the photographer who shot my daughters wedding. After the wedding the actual photographer himself said he "dropped the ball".
I know there are always 3 sides to every story, but what a photographer shoots or misses, speaks for itself. Yes we got some nice pictures-well we didn't get them yet, were still trying to get the paid in full album and it's now May 07 the wedding was in Oct 05. Some shots were nice, even good, some were lousy-could have been taken by a bum with a throw away camera, not a studio.
What "fine photography studio" misses standard shots like groom and his parents? Who were by the way, there and together the whole time, or is that something that needed to be discussed in advance? Funny, I NEVER EVER would think that getting a photo of the groom and his parents would be considered outdated thinking, or something that needs to be discussed prior to a wedding.
What studio do you know that doesn't get a good picture of a gorgeous Chuppah-hard to miss considering they got married under it & sat under it for the length of the wedding. The picture of the wedding cake was just OK. A photo a friend took with a regular $200 camera got a better shot then the photographer got, and that's the one going in their album. Should have hired her, we would have gotten a better job & saved a TON of money & heartache.
I think that there are just to many mistakes they made, to list them all, but the photographer himself saying he dropped the ball (in front of the owner, my daughter, my brother & a friend) pretty much speaks VOLUMES in itself. Buyer beware- If a company has as many complaints as they have, and want all their money pretty much up front-ask more questions-don't be another in a line of unhappy brides, grooms and parents.
