Took our money and left us empty-handed 3/4/2011

Without a doubt, CB Bell took phenomenal shots of our wedding and was incredibly personable and great to work with throughout the experience . . . that is, until it came time to order our reprints. CB screwed up half of them (wrong sizes, printed B&W instead of sepia, etc.), which he admitted to when I picked them up. He told me to look through them and let him know which ones needed to be re-done, and then he would deliver the corrected reprints. I foolishly trusted him and paid him in full. A few weeks later I gave him the list of re-do's, and have never heard from him since. I've e-mailed, called, even sent a certified letter (all very polite), and he has not responded to any communication. We've been married for 6 years and STILL do not have a complete wedding album. Our great memories of working with this fantastic photographer are marred by sadness and frustration and questions . . . wondering what on earth inspired him to leave the job we paid for unfinished. It's bewildering, as we never had anything but great, positive interactions. We don't understand why he acted so hatefully and dishonorably toward us. I guess once he got his money, there was no need to be nice and honor our contract anymore. Really disappointing! If you use his services, make sure you get EVERYTHING delivered before you pay him!! more

Well worth the money 3/10/2006

The only good things to come out of my wedding were the bagpiper (Tyrone Heade) and CB Bell. I paid quite a bit to have him and take a ton of photos, portraits, etc, but it was SOOOO worth it. He's so kind, an expert and true artist in his field. I have the best wedding pictures of any one of my family or friends. I went to great lengths to find the right guy and I spent the money to do it, because I wanted the memories from that day in nice photos. He knew how to use the church and it's natural lighting best. Well, the husband is now the ex-husband, but the great pics are still there and everyone looks happy and young. And I kept getting the comments, "Where was your photographer?" He was so good at being the fly on the wall and getting the out of the way shots that I treasured. I felt the energy and moment of the wedding, in chronological order, when I saw the shots. Perfect! The only thing I don't regret about that day was CB BELL! LOL :) And when I had my first baby 6 months after the ceremony, CB was so sweet to came over to congratulate me, give me my finished album and big box of ALL of the shots he took (that was my fault that it took so long), and then took some darling pictures of my new little angel for free :). Thanks CB - you were the best part of that day. I'll hire you again if I get married again! more

Top Notch 7/4/2005

They make you pay a fortune for that wedding. After all, it's an industry, you know? So how do you decide what's actually worth paying for and what's just a waste? I'll give you a hint. Pay for the photographer. If you ask Uncle Frank to be in charge of the photos, you'll regret it. Seeing CB in action, I appreciate that the professional photographer isn't just an artist and a professional, he's a wrangler, traffic cop, undercover agent, and journalist all in one. I heartily recommend CB for any occassion. more
