Sadly, we cannot leave a glowing review for Dave as our wedding photographer on 22 October 2016.
Granted he took some lovely photos of our ceremony and the reception, but we are not satisfied that the price paid equalled the level of services received.
He missed key parts of the reception that he was specifically asked to photograph (just 2 photos cutting the cake & none of the whiskey toast) and the hour spent as a newlyweds resulted in landscape photos or very close ups of us that were highly saturated and awkward (half our fault but also due to not having any direction). Many photos had either mine or my partners eyes closed, and we have paid another photographer to edit them so that they could be saved.
We tried to reach a resolution with Dave but were told that those moments were missed due to him not being told it was happening and he was happy with how the rest had turned out.
Due to Kimo Estate being in its infancy we would not recommend using them both as a venue and photographer, as we felt Dave was distracted whilst trying to assist Emelia in running the function.
