    Please contact me! He has done the same to me just recently! My email is
    He hasn't given me my pictures yet and its been 10 weeks, he said they would be ready in 3-6 weeks. He finally gave me a CD and when I put it in my computer it didn't work! I think he didn't even put anything on it to buy him more time! He's completely avoided all of my calls and my mothers. The only way we have been able to contact Harlan Cone is to pretend we are potential customers looking for his business, and then he calls us back right away!
    Please contact me because I think we can help each other.

    Hey my name is Zac I just got married this weekend and that [censored] was supposed do my photography, video and Dj. I guess we got lucky the people he called came to the wedding and not him. They are taking care of us with the photos and video, but i paid that ### 800 to do all that he only paid the photo lady 80 buck and the video people 40 ea. Im going to go after this [censored] for a full refund im calling 12 new and also 3 on your side and also my lawyer. So if we can work together we can take this guy down. You can email me at I will be emailing you here shortly.

    My name is Shannon and my soon to be husband and I have also been scammed by Harlan Cone. We've paid him in full, $900, for the services he was supposed to provide for our February wedding. We wrote him a letter stating we did not wish to continue his services, but now we're out $900 and starting the DJ/photographer search all over again. We went to his house in Peoria this evening, he is still living there with his father and simply insistent they do not provide refunds. We fully intend on pursuing legal action...but from what I see on Maricopa's court website he has a few outstanding debts to pay. How do we take this scam artist down?

    I am afraid we have been scammed as well. Our wedding was in November 2009. When we met him, he agreed to half payment now and balance due 2 weeks prior to the event like our other vendors. However, he called several times about a month and a half prior to our wedding asking for the balance payment. He was very unprofessional at the wedding and asked us for a ride back home after the event and we ended up paying his cab fare as well. After all of this, we still have not received photos or video and from all the other complaints I have seen, we probably will never receive them. It looks like he has been taken to civil court several times and currently has a criminal trial pending. I will likely be going to small claims court as well.

    I just recently worked with Harlan (July 3) though he called himself "Frederick". I am a wedding cake designer and I just tried to deposit the check he wrote to me today and there was a stop payment put on the check. He also put a stop payment on the check to the wedding venue and the entire wedding was a compleate ruin. Myself, the bride and I beleive the venue as well are looking to take legal action. Please contact me.

    I am more then willing to jump into any legal claims anyone has against him. We paid for 5 hours of video and what we got was a 42 minute roller coster ride. It was pathetic and he hangs up on me.

    I used SWP Weddings, a new business Harlan "aka Frederic" Cone runs to do the videography for my wedding in March 2012. Frederic may offer you a great price but even after paying minimal you will still feel shorted after receiving the final product. He did the videography for my wedding and it was terrible. He dressed unprofessionally, he cut off our heads during the majority of the filming, he didn’t use professional equipment, just a handheld camcorder... my uncle did a better job filming my wedding than Frederic. His cell phone started ringing during the middle of our ceremony! He was not reliable before hand, cancelled every meeting we arranged. I was surprised he even showed up on my wedding day. The DVD wasn't labeled and came in a clear CD case. I recieved a video that was not edited what so ever and after submitting a reivew for SWP Wedding it was taken down by the website because Frederick submitted a contract that I never signed stating I paid for 1 1/2 hours of "raw coverage". After I reviewed the copy of the contract I signed no where in there did it state that agreed to anything "raw". He is a scam artist. For paying what I paid I expected a little more than what I received. I did not have high expectations what so ever and I was still extremely disappointed with my final product. He is not worth saving a few dollars.

    I am a professional makeup artist. Frederick contacted me
    almost 3 weeks ago to do hair and makeup for a wedding he was hosting. I asked
    him how I would get paid as the bride stated she needed me to come to her house
    prior to the wedding. He said he would send me a check. I asked for something in
    writing. he sent me an email with the condtions and pricing. I agreed. I did my
    part by doing hair and makeup for him and then a week later still hadnt recieved
    the check. I called and he said " oh i just sent it" ...a week
    later...nothing..I called and he said "i dont know why you havent recieved it" I
    said because you didnt send it. I would like to meet you somewhere, he said
    "sure cal lme tomorrow" I said no lets set up something now. he hung up on
    me...i have yet to recieve payment for my services..
    he is a scam artist.

    He is in Peoria or Phoenix. His company name is SWP Wedd. His number is 623 223 1123. His website is SWPWEDD.COM. and He also calls from 480-593-1368. I think he could use some annoying phone calls!

    Do your research before hiring this individual. His businesses are:
    Epiphany Photography
    Advent of Wedding Art
    Sensational Productions
    Absolute Best
    Accurate Media
    Absolute Best Price Quality Photo

    He goes by Fredrick but his full name is Harlan F Cone. Google his name or any above business. He has many phone numbers

    His current website

    Does this look wrong! Well it is. He does not pay vendors and provides either no service or lacks in service that he claims he does.

    How is it possible that this guy hasn't been arrested?! I've also been scammed by him and will be one of the many filing a claim against him.

    I have filed with the attorney general and was told they cannot do anything because I am a business and not an individual person. If we can get every "person" to file with the attorney gen, something has got to work. I've also herd people have taken him to court and won but 2 years later they still have not received any compensation.
