We chose bill ballam because his portfolio looked good, however a LOT OF OUR FAVOURITE SHOTS WHERE OUT OF FOCUS, some of which he had to use for the album, he turned up at our wedding in just casual clothes yet his wife was very well dressed, I had to give him ideas to shoot such as the group from a high window and shootin my bride on the stairs, we where married in july but diddnt get our album until november in our opinion as photographers ourselves he is not a pro photographer as we where led to believe, one bit advice from us is , if you do use him buy the full disk off him only and edit it yourself we feel he was not worth the £1100 we paid him. We also paid for their meal and made them feel part of the guests.We can only say we did not get value for money.ps our promised disk of our wedding only arrived today 17th dec 2011, our wedding was on 31st july 2011. Bill Ballam was paid in full on the 15th of july 2011 as he insisted on payment 2weeks before the wedding.
Company response : Mr Rowbotham is a keen amateur photographer and he made it clear that he had definite ideas about the shots he wanted. As always I was happy to incorporate his ideas and suggestions on the day. I had to be especially responsive because Eileen, his lovely wife, has a disability which limits the time that she can stand. I am disappointed that Steve has written this feedback particularly since he was effusive in his praise for the digital storybook album that I produced. He is mistaken on several issues and he told me that his medication affects his memory, however I must make it clear that I ALWAYS WEAR A SUIT at weddings. The wedding was on 31st. July but due to Eileen's incapacity they were unable to select their photos until 24th. September and the completed album arrived for them on 23rd. November - not a bad turnaround. The wedding slide-show disk should have been supplied with the album - this was my error for which I did apologise and I included extra content. There was only one "soft" photo in the entire album and this was a delightful photo of their first dance taken in low light which they selected because of the mood it captured even though it has slight motion blur. I understand that Steve was confused about his rights to print all of the photos. I made this clear both verbally and in the supplied literature that this was a chargeable extra. I believe his anger about this led him to write what is an inaccurate and vexatious review and in complete contrast to my other reviews.

Bill and Irene were professional, helpful and friendly throughout all our meetings and during our special day. Bill helped keep me calm through the nerves and tears as the rain began to pour. Despite the bad weather they took some amazing and truly beautiful photographs that we will treasure forever. Everyone is more than impressed with the quality and finish of the photo albums and print enlargements we ordered. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting high quality photos to last a lifetime. Thanks again, Bethany and Dave
We were both nervous about having our photographs taken, Bill & Irene made us feel very relaxed & comfortable. They got some fantastic shots of the day & everybody commented on the quality of the albums. In short they provided an excellent friendly service & we would recommend them to anybody without hesitation. Many Thanks Mike & Emma
