Unprofessional and did not consult client

Another half and half situation. Here's my main advice.

If you don't feel comfortable about Sarah's work, go to a professional makeup and hair salon. She does not make any guarantees in the business terms that you will absolutely be satisfied or your money back. Also for some a professional establishment is better.

If you do not mind working with someone who clearly works on their own and is not a part of a professional salon service, then by all means go with Sarah. There's lots of Sarahs in the industry and you'll likely find one that suits you. Just don't forget to search the name first.

"If you don't try TOO hard, your work tends to have a more elegant quality that appeals to far more people." So true!
She posted this on her facebook. Is anyone else laughing at how ironic this quote is, especially given her over the top attempts to be innovative and creative? Sarita, you try the HARDEST to be someone you aren't and there is nothing elegant or appealing about you or your work. You and several of your "models" try a little too hard if you ask me! LMFAO!

Sarah C. Hernandez, also known as Sarah C. to those who knew her before she became this arrogant snot, continues to rant about how much work she has to do. Frankly, many of us are tired of it. We hear it when we see her, we read about it when we sign on to fb, and people who pay for her services have to deal with it first hand when your work is not ready. Or what about her "temporary" price cuts? Even discounted, they still cost more than they are worth. And after reading the other posts, I see I am not the only one who thinks that she is unprofessional! She has pending jobs and is asking for some patience as she "catches up" and yet she is posting photos that she took this weekend!?! Again ladies, you are not a priority unless you are a personal friend or she thinks that you are attractive enough to post on her "business" page. And has anyone noticed how her slimy husband fb stalks the attractive laides all the time and disrespects her all the time??

Why is she promoting discounted shoots and trades when she isn't done with the jobs she already has "backed up"? This is exactly why sch studios had to downsize in the first place. No business sense and unless she thinks you can get her on the map or get something free out of you, your pictures are her last priority! She even did yet ANOTHER shoot of her sister and edited it the same day instead of finishing up on jobs she took weeks ago. Unprofessional, inconsiderate, and so overcharged that now she has decreased her pricing! Bet that makes those few who paid top dollar for mediocre work feel pretty foolish right now.

The only reason Sarah is "backed up" is because she is too busy editing her trade shoots or going to tattoo appointments with her nasty sister instead of getting shit done! And now Sarah and Aldo are busy trying to friend everyone's friends to book more jobs!?! Shouldn't your ass finish the work you're already behind on? Her pathetic fb apologies are trash just like she is.

Sarah is doing it again! She wants everyone to feel sorry for her because of her "downsizing" but this doesn't give her any excuses for not getting her work done! She had to know this wasn't going to last. People are already saying she is going back to shine. I hope that doesn't happen again!

I've seen them and they look like she did it when she was younger and it was obviously for attention. That's so Sarah. Always looking for some and doom whatever she can to get some!

I think she lost her studio or something and she's had that place for less than a year! What does that tell you? Her business sense is just like her make up and photography skills, self taught and self proclaimed! She has to be saying FML!

Lol yet again she is at it... Pity me people lol it's so funny to how she assumes thing from people too, I wonder why? Guilty conscience? Lol
My friend used to work with her and it's so funny how I noticed that on page 3 they were trying to portray my friend " M.D" Vegas Baby" it's so true that it is probably her writing all this shit too. Hey news flash Sarah "M.D" was busy at her baby shower that day how do I know this? Cause as a true friend I was their! I just informed her about this website, she didn't even know this existed til today, and I put 2 and 2 together so funny your insinuations! grow up little girl.
Poor poor Sarah needs so much confidence boost cause she knows her work is actually shit. what would Sarah do if their was no such thing as photoshop? Would she actually conceder herself a picture taker? Lol I think not. Sarah word of advice: your so called "friends" are just around to get free pictures taken cause you know damn well no one will pay what you want! those are just acquaintances you don't have TRUE friends and no one is jealous of you nor you work cause pretty much anyone can grab a camera, take a picture an photoshop the shit out of it ;0) please do REAL PHOTOGRAPHERS a favor and just stop with all your fakeness we already experience it with your attitude we don't need more with your fake pictures and you should not call your self a " photographer " cause your not, a REAL photographer does not post crap like you do on your FB page.
Now turn around and ask your "friends" for more pity comments " you're amazing, your work is the best, I don't understand..., people are just jealous, blah blah blah" SO NOT TRUE. Nor I'm jealous of your shit work nor your fakeness lol ;0)

Sarah Cabrera-Hernandez PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:

Since Facebook changed it's privacy settings yet AGAIN, you can probably read this post even if we're not friends. So I wanted to let you know that if you talk shit about me and I find out, I will delete you. Some people get their panties in a twist and make fun of me saying "oh god, you're so cool, you deleted me from your Facebook (scoff), it's just Facebook!"

My answer to that bullshit is...YES, you bet bet your ass I did. Plain and simple, why the F-K would I want to keep you there if we both know good and well you're running your mouth about me and not in a good way. Look at this way, I'm just doing you a favor since you obviously don't have the balls to just say it to my face. Take care!! ♥

I had to post this to show those who are unfamiliar with sch studios the unprofessional and immature rants that she posts regularly. Real professional Mrs. Hernandez. Is this how you react to the truth? Sarah, many of us have will and do tell you exactly how we feel on fb and in person! Stop acting like you DON'T know who the hell we are!

Sarah is setting herself up for all this criticism! This isnt a smear campaign. I can agree with many of these complaints. A photographer should never talk about their personal issues or other clients to paying clients who have hired you for services. Sarah has told the world about Aldo's ongoing cheating, her hatred for his family, her broken friendships, she even talks about her own sisters drama! If she tells everyone she meets about her own family business, then what do you think she says about you after you work with her? And Justanotherone is dead on about how she acts like you're her best friend in the whole world. She throws the love word around like it's toilet paper and yet she can stab you in the back as soon as you turn around. Her life is a soap opera based in the heart of Napa. Not that long ago, she mentioned she was planning on moving to Vegas. Leave already!

I used to be another one of her acquaintances I really never considered her a "friend" cause I knew how she was personally, I find it so amusing how much sh!t she talks about you and can still look you in the eye as if you were the best friends in the while wide world. I used to go over to her place and "play" with makeup being that she never ever charged me. The last time I went to her place she informed me she wanted to do a shoot like old times "play" date I thought ok kool, I get their things go "smooth" and a few days later I hear back all the shit she was talking about me that I didn't pay her or even give her anything as "Sarah Marshall" would say " Bull sh!t, bull sh!t, bull sh!t" lol
I have worked with quite a few TRUE PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS and not once have they brought up their life problems, or even closely open their mouths to talk sh!t about anyone, shows how much growing up you really need to do! Another thing I find ridiculously funny is that if you pay close attention to her " friends" list she is always requesting all the people on your own friends list, example I have some cousins out of state that obviously would know who the Fu!# she is and they are on her friends list, lol wow really you really need to blow up your head with so many friend request that you are the one looking for people awww so sad!
Now "mentoring" her husband I didn't know it was that hard to grab a camera and take a picture? Does anyone else have problems of how to take pictures? Cause I know little kids that can grab a camera and shoot.
What I find more hilarious is how she try's sooooooooo hard to get the pity votes from her so called "friend" by posting crap like " people talking sh!t" and stuff like that so your head can get bigger than it already is to make you feel better who are you really trying to kid? It's so funny how her and her "faithful" hubby walk around town like they are mainstream. Word of advice, you both aren't, you are so pathetic looking and the people that see you are thinking the same.
Warning to businesses if yo collaborate with this couple, don't think you will be in business for a long time these so called "picture takers" come with a lot of baggage and I don't think you want your business ruined.
It's funny how they try to act like they are the kool people in town and everyone in their words "glorifies " them and wishes the were them and that supposively were jealous, hey news flash we are not and we don't! Oh and their so called friends look at the age range they are in much younger then them to make them feel superior and wanted lol such a sad couple.
So if you want your life heard around town go to "SCH Studios or AMH Studios" and you will surely get talked about.
My suggestion is pass these two PICTURE TAKERS up you can get more fore your money elsewehere

I had to register just to make this comment. I am researching photographers and MUA for my upcoming wedding and came across this complaint as I was looking. I just spent about 15 minutes browsing through MUA on facebook and I do NOT understand the buzz that this particular MUA/Photographer is getting. From what I see in comparison, she seems boring and does most of her "work" digitally on phtoshop. Just stop and take a look at some of the other MUA profiles and the wild and creative things that they do without any assistance from ps or any other editing software blows this lady out of the water. I can only imagine what their work would look like with the extra editing.

I see how this works now! Light Coldie, Nicole. and some of these other commentators are "regulars" who comment on just about anything to start their own conversations within complaints. This is a venue to make a complaint, not start petty online arguments to see who is wittier than the other.

To all my fellow Napians, we may love or hate Sarah and Aldo's work, but those of us who have voiced our experiences on this site should continue to do so because it simply is not fair to charge the same if not higher rates for less than quality work. Sarah is not licensed or accredited in any way and Aldo is even less experienced than she is. Sarah has many "fans" but she also has many critics due to her unprofessional practices. This is merely my opinion, but one that I have found to be more common than not.

Hey Light Coldie,
I think it's great that you are a regular member of ComplaintsBoard.com and insert yourself into various boards to share your thoughts, but it is obvious that we, and I say WE because I too am a Napa resident and know several of the clients that have sought Ms. Hernandez's services, are first hand witnesses and clients of her unprofessional and immature antics and business practices. Please understand that I too see that some people have chosen this forum to "talk shit" but there are legitimate complaints on this site as well. What you need to understand is that the photos you SEE on her sites are again her "BEST" shots taken with her BEST models. Many of the women that seek her services for the same images are left with mediocre and rushed images and are not cared for to the degree that she puts forth with these other "semi professional models." As for your comment "The reason she said that comment on Facebook is because someone is carrying on a smear campaign against her by posting lots of negative reviews and flagging her photographs on FB. " again, shows how little you know about the photographer and her reputation. If you are simply a fan, be a fan. Many people are fans of Michael Jackson but it doesn't mean he didn't molest small children. It is your right to enjoy her work, but please don't sit here and disregard the real first hand experiences that frustrated clients have dealt with.

Yours,
Alison
