New Orleans Photographer.
I worked with Ms. Bernie in the year of 2009. She captured my engagement photos, bridal portraits, and also my wedding. I chose her because I had previously seen her work first hand, when she captured a family members wedding.
I can honestly say that she's an excellent photographer. Her pictures exhibit really nice quality, and she seems very knowledgeable in regards to her craft. HOWEVER, I will say that her work seems to follow a repeating concept of picture taking. If you view several weddings on her website, you'll see that all of them are captured kinda like the same (same sequence) it's nothing different!!! Also, she seems like she takes on a little bit more than she can handle,...not sure if shes working by herself, or with an assistant,....but her communication is not great at all! It may take her about a week to reply to an email,...and as for pictures, you can expect to wait about 2-3 months! REALLY! I personally didn't like that,...
@ the wedding, she did take charge by telling the little 1's where to stand, letting the BM's know when it was time to get dressed or leave etc.
Just really didn't like her communication, and receiving photos 2-3 mths after an event! (The fricken excitement is OVER by then)!!!
A Blessing. I obtained the services of Bernie Saul photography for my wedding in October 2004. Bernie came highly recommended and I had seen her work on several occassions. Bernie was a true blessing. She is patient, caring and very detailed oriented. Her work is absolutely beautiful, clear, colorful, and she captures the true essence of those being photographed as well as the event. Bernie is truly a professional.
Bernie is the Best !. Bernie is caring, excited, vibrant and just an overall lovely person as well as photographer. She is very professional and makes you feel like your sitting on top of the world will every click of the camera. Bernie thankyou for making all my events as well all the events I've been to that you'vd shot the best they could be. I would recommend Bernie to anyone, anytime, anyplace.
"New Orleans Finest Photographer".
I just starting a business with my sister, "My Sister's Jewelry, Inc." and I needed to market my product. I give home jewelry parties and the ladies love it! They try on the jewelry and see the quaility of our work, but sometimes they are not able to attend the party to see the jewelry. My website is under construction, so I decided to do a brochure. Well, let me tell you, "a picture is worth a thousand words". If you are looking for a great photographer than look no further. Bernie Saul is it! I used Bernie is the past for family functions, but she captured my jewelry in the "perfect" light. She is outstanding, professional, friendly, patient and creative. Bernie will make anything look good! I promise, you will not regret using Bernie Saul.

Poor Communication and Lack of Professionalism.
On 02/27 I emailed Ms. Saul informing her of how displeased I was with the way she had handled the potential booking of her services for my wedding ceremony.
1. I made initial contact on 02/14 inquiring of a meeting based on excellent recommendations. Ms. Saul replied with an initiated request for a phone meeting the following business day.
2. I never heard from her on the following day and left a voicemail to which she replied via email at 3 am.
3. Ms. Saul called me on 02/16 saying she was busy and she'd call the next day while promising not to book my date. Ms. Saul never called on 02/17.
4. I called Ms. Saul on 02/22. Her accounts were that she was awaiting my phone call. Inappropriate? Despite my gut, I agreed to a meeting on the evening of 02/27.
5. I called Ms. Saul back on 02/23 seeking available meeting window, however none were available that day.
6. Ms. Saul called at 7:26 am on 02/27 indicating she needed to cancel due to a booking for my date made by one of her staff members.
I believe, via email and phone contact, I'd shown Ms. Saul that I was serious about booking her for my event. Despite my efforts I felt blown off, un-important, and most of all disrespected by her Poor Communication and Lack of Professionalism.
When I emailed my concerns to her today, instead of apologizing for the "potential" mishap, she replied with an email with a list of excuses for the grave error and blamed an inexperienced member of her staff.
Ms. Saul staff is a direct reflection of her and her business. Clear channels of communication would have made my experience a more pleasurable one.
As a consumer, I demand a higher standard of professionalism to which we hold our vendors in the service industry!
I would never recommend or retain the photography services of Bernie Saul.
Bernie Saul is the Jewel of New Orleans & should be every brides first phone call!. My sister Cindy Carmon was married on Saturday December 16, 2006 in New Orleans. Ms. Bernie was the photographer and we are so very blessed that she was. She is so wonderful that it's difficult to put into words the amout of respect I have for her and her craft. I viewed pictures on her website to get an idea of what to expect and I must admit that when you meet her she will exceed your expectations. Ms. Bernie must really love her job because she is a pro of pro's. She truly knows how to capture the moment and make everyone involved love being in front of the camera. She made my sister look like a true princess on her wedding date. As a matter of fact the entire wedding party looked like royalty. The poses and and moments captured were more than perfect. The way she handled even the children was wonderful and you know it's difficult to keep little people still. Wow! I want to Thank her again for all of her hard work and for the care she extended to my entire very large family! Ms. Bernie you are a true blessing! I could go on forever in this post as I've done on the phone about her the last few days. I just want to say to you Ms. Bernie work that camera girl and from the bottom of my heart on behalf of myself, Cindy & Preston, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
This should be the photographer for every wedding. I used bernie saul for my February 11, 2006 wedding. Bernie helped the entire wedding go by smoothly. She did not spent the entire reception taking pictures we were able to enjoy every minute of our wedding. The posses she had us in turned out to make a really pretty picture. I felt comfortable and she made me fell comfortable when taking pictures while dressing. I loved everything she did for the wedding. To all brides getting married this should be the first phone call you should make when looking for a photographer.
Treasured Photography. Bernie is an artist and a camera is her canvas. Her work is incredible and she takes great candid shots. Once you book her, you can rest assured that your memories will be captured and that she will treat you and your wedding party like royalty. She goes the extra mile and that what makes her so special. Based on my previous work with Bernie, we will be using her to capture all of our future family memories. Some events/moments are to precious to miss, so hire Bernie and you won't be disappointed.
She is great. Bernie is a true professional. The quality of the photos are exceptional. I was pleasantly surprised when I received my photos. During our time in the studio my fiancee and I were made to hold poses in what we thought of as akward positions but once we received the photos we were highly impressed.
