Louis Torres is a foul mouth unprofessional wedding photographer that thinks he is God's gift to the world. Just like the above complaint he also told other patrons at our wedding that they were not allowed to take photographs during the event because it was 'his thing'. He even threaten one guest saying he would have them KICKED out of the venue if they took another photo.

He called himself "A Big Deal" and was so grotesquely vile with his language I shuddered to think my grandmother heard any of his F-bombs. He also showed up with a tongue ring in and wore sneakers. He even made a scene arguing with someone during our dinner. If I had known what he was telling my guests I would have called the cops and had HIM kicked out however my guests were more professional than him and did not want to say anything that would ruin my day.

Even worse his photos were not that great, I have friends that took better photos (I guess it makes sense now why he doesn't want anyone else taking photos) He needs to learn how to color correct and go to editing school. 

Ever since our awful experience we tell everyone we can who is getting married. We've talked to couples that had him do engagement shots and disliked him so much that they fired him before he could do their wedding photos. Everyone that knows him or has worked with him that we have met says he is crazy, foul-mouthed monster who is ridiculous to work with. Do YOURSELF a favor and STAY FAR FAR AWAY from any photographer named LOUIS TORRES

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

From LaRose Media to Louis Torres Wedding Photography

AUTHOR: Louis Torres - (United States of America)

READ EMAILS BELOW:  Ultimately, I refused to have this removed from this public forum because I didn't do anything wrong. Instead, I get a business who went ahead and attempted to defame my business and I think people need to see this, FOR THE RECORD. An attorney suggested that I should sue them for defamation but I don't feel the need to take it that far and of course, I would win. Want REAL reviews? Google me and look at ALL the five star ratings from Wedding Wire - Those are my REAL couples and they're ALL amazing..! I LOVE what I do...!  :)

Hi Louis,
I just wanted to give you a heads up, I have been talking with ripoff report trying to remove everything that was said about you and your business. I understand you can 'resolve' issues on the report however, the negative one that was written will always show up first in any search. I guess you could say some ego's were hurt during the wedding we filmed together and I don't agree with how my business went about venting. The worst part is, something this stupid should never be out there to potentially hurt either of our business. I just wanted to let you know that I've been talking with them to get what I said removed in case they contact you for some reason.  Hope it helps and sorry for any headaches this may have caused you.

-Lauren

Well I'm really glad you see it my way. Your right about holding a grudge, its dumb. We have a LOT to learn and we will get no where in this business doing things like that, so again I thank you for your understanding... All I've done is e-mail the only address I could find on there EDitor@ripoffreport.com
and wrote about the whole situation saying it was a misunderstanding and I wanted what was said about Louis Torres Photography to be removed because things that were said were completely untrue. The only e-mail I got back from them was this: 
Did they make things right with you?Did they say they would make things right with you ONLY if you had the Report Removed?  Did they threaten you with harm or to sue you if you did not have the Report Removed?

I then wrote back yesterday saying again why I wanted it removed and reiterated that NO I wasn't being threatened in anyway I just wanted to make things right and get the report posted off. I haven't heard
anything back yet.

I do hope that can be fixed because the whole thing is BS, that you can't delete what was said. I mean people could go around bad mouthing any business for any reason..makes no legal sense to me. I really appreciate you saying you would do your best to get your report off, although I hope you know that is not the reason I contacted you. I just wanted to fully apologize for myself AND Jeremy. I will keep you updated on any more e-mails I get from them.

Thanks again for your time, 
Lauren

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

From the Bride & Groom of SAID date

AUTHOR: Louis Torres - (United States of America)

Bride: "It sounds like its from the bride and grooms perspective ... But holy crap! That's terrible! I really couldn't imagine anyone feeling that way towards you or your work ... You're awesome!"  -HS (Bride)

Groom:  "Wow, that's just ridiculous man. Haters are gonna hate. I'm sure for every 100 awesome reviews/praise/complimentary facebook posts, etc.. you'll find one of these jackasses that just wants to hate people they envy. People are just jealous, and have to overexaggerate things for their own gain. Whatever though, we know the truth. Dude's just pissed that you're way cooler and better at your job than he could ever dream to be. No
worries at all man, we know the truth"  -ZS (Groom)

H&Z on 8/24/2011 after being told of this false report by wedding videographers who feel like it's okay to defame a business. I'm actually going to file my own report to simply share my own person experience with La Rose Media from Upstate, New York. It'll be all true though and I won't be hiding behind an anonymous name. Funny because there are enough details that they might as well just said it was written by them. Hahahaha...! Funny, I know.

#3 REBUTTAL Owner of company

This was written by LaRose Videography

AUTHOR: Louis Torres - (United States of America)

Earlier this year, I captured a beautiful wedding where the videographer brought her fiance who was capturing photos to add to the couple's wedding video. Seemed fine, until he decided to focus his efforts in standing in EVERY shot between ME and the COUPLE. You just had to laugh. At the end of the night, it was so frustrating that I had to get the owner of the venue involved who just said, "if you want me to escort him off my property because he's interrupting you, then you let me know."  So, I'm guessing that it was the fiance of the owner of LaRose Media (Wedding Videographers) http://www.larosemedia.com and everything else is clearly untrue. This just makes me laugh, whatever... disgruntled wedding videographers, ya gotta love them. After seeing this, I emailed the bride and groom this morning, to let them read what their wedding videographers posted.

I've seriously NEVER had anyone "fire" me and it's because I'm AMAZINGLY fun, outgoing and LOVE what I do. I'm at the point that if anyone were to tell me that they're planning on hiring LaRose Videography, I will outright refuse to shoot their wedding. It was that bad of an experience with these newbies but you have to take the good with the bad in this business.  :)
