Stole our money. We signed a contract with him which included a wedding album and he never delivered. We contacted several times and he doesn't care. This year we posed as potential clients and met with him. He was pissed that we faked a meeting but too bad - we are out $700 from you not finishing a contract. There are several other photographers who are much more honest. Check his BBB rating and other reviews - you will see he has done this to other clients.
I had to pull over to take a phone call. I pulled into the empty parking lot of Gordon Valentine photography which appeared closed. I was just sitting in my running car taking the phone call, and it was closed with no cars. The owner arrived and asked me what I was doing. I said, "I'm sorry-I had to take a phone call and felt unsafe driving." He started screaming at me, using the F word and telling me to get the F off his property. He told me I was on private property, however I was sitting in the parking lot of a commercial business; those cannot be private. He then pulled his car up to my drivers side window and blared on the horn to intimidate me. I was so alarmed, I could not put my car in gear because I was shaking. I honestly thought he was going to assault me. He was screaming. He got out of his car and continued to yell obscenities. He said, "Do you think I'm a bully?" He threatened to call the police and I shook my head yes, because I wanted him to call the police at that point. Once he got back in his car, I put my car in gear and I left. He took pictures of me in my car, so I gave him a peace sign. Much nicer than the obscenities he was hurling at me. I'm not usually easily scared or intimidated-but this guy really flew off the handle and made me feel sick to my stomach. I would encourage my friends not to use this business. There are much kinder people in the world to support.
Maquire worked with me to create a professional headshot that I could use for my new business Balance The Books, LLC. We had so much fun. I was a real model for a day !! The photographs were exceptional !!Thank you Maquire !!!
Wow what a great experience we had with our twins! They are gong to be high school seniors next year so we wanted to take them to someone who had a great reputation in Richmond. They got so many poses to choose from and the ones in the garden out back were beautiful. By the way.. I noticed the hours and days open on yellow pages is wrong. I called to verify and they told me Tue through Friday 10am to 5pm and Saturday 9am to 1pm, just thought I would help out since they were so great to us!!!
A true artsist, her photographs truly show the difference between a proffesional and some I-phone amateur with a handfull of instagram filters.
Two years ago my wife and I got married. When I saw her walking down the aisle, she had never been more beautiful to me. As she got closer I realized I had never seen her with make-up. She's a natural beauty. Maguire was hired to photograph our wedding, when I saw the photos I realized she had captured all those memories for me. Later my wife told me she had done her make-up for her too. I will forever cherish these photos and I owe thanks to Maguire for her talents.
