Last night I received a tip that one of the photographers listed here in 2015, A&K Photography, was back up to his old tricks and using stolen images in his portfolio.  Not only that but he’s been pulling no shows at weddings as well.  I wonder if he’ll blame the former partner again?

Here is a link to the news story that aired last night about two weddings he no-showed to.  http://www.kcci.com/article/newlyweds-say-photographer-scammed-them-on-their-wedding-day/8677634

Also of note is that right when all of the shit started to hit the fan there was a sudden influx of 5 star reviews on his listing on The Knot.  Now you have to dig to find the negative reviews.

Of course most of the client reviews on his website are plagiarized.  Color me shocked.

Updated 2/16/17 – New Facebook Page has been added.  More plagiarized reviews have been added to his Facebook and Website and the original sources are linked below.

Life pro tip: don’t Google her phone number at work, the number brings up some listings for someone at that number who is/was an escort.

Mandi Payne Photography aka Mandi Lei Photography in Omaha, Nebraska

Website:  http://mandileip.wixsite.com/mandipaynephoto
Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/MandiPaynePhoto/
Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mandipaynephoto/

Mandi recently underwent a rebranding of her website to reflect her new style of photography.  Unfortunately that new style is made up of mostly stolen images that show the film style editing which she aspires to shoot but isn’t quite nailing yet (based on her actual images she’s taken which remain).  This is a huge reason why I have this website, she’s selling herself based on beautiful images which she hasn’t taken.

One should also note that there are a ton of stock images she’s using as well on her Facebook and Instagram.  I am not listing those images as there is no way for me to know if she’s purchased them legally or not but I still find it unethical.

She also may be in the process of rebranding to Element photography based on an Instagram.

I started this post before my wedding yesterday (and posting it as I’m heading out for my second one today) and some things have been taken down after being called out by the original photographers but not all.
