This woman doesn't deserve the right to still be allowed to call herself a "photographer." In March 2011, my husband came home from an overseas deployment to do a photo shoot, since we were unable to be married in person due to the military. I spent a fortune on a dress, hair, makeup, flight to the states, etc, and she shot (I'm assuming she actually took any pics) at trinidad bay. I paid her the shoot fee and she said give her a week or two. Weeks went by, started turning to months. I begged her in emails, phone calls, facebook, through friends and even her husband that I just wanted the pictures, it was the only thing I had of my husband, who had since returned to deployment. I can't imagine anything more cruel than to photograph a couple that is spending a precious few days together, then blow them off and refuse to even contact me again. I trusted her because she did a varsity football shoot at EHS when my son was a senior. I reported her to the BBB almost a year later hoping for a resolution, but she never responded to them. It's sad that someone like this is allowed to prey on vulnerable people who put all their hopes and wishes in her, and it is unbelievable how Christina Russ thinks that it's okay to treat anyone like that. She knew my husband was re-deploying and she knew these pictures were all I had. Yet for whatever twisted reason, she ignored me. It's been almost 3 years, and not a day goes by that I do not think about what she did to us. And I also know that she has never even given us a second thought, and if so it was only to laugh at how she suckered us out of money, and gave us nothing. So be careful dealing with this snake.
Really like this store. Staff is friendly and nice selection of gold and silver jewelry. One of the only places in Humboldt County to find leather goods.
Redwood Raks is awesome! This studio offers all sorts of dance forms from around the world, a whole bunch of social dance opportunities, and just an all-around wonderful collection of dance communities from across our area. Hope you can come soon!
Fun fact...... "raks" is Arabic for "dance" and is often spelled "raqs." It's pronounced like "rocks" ... not "racks." Now you know. :-)
This wonderful event begins at 12 noon rather than 1 p.m. Please pass the word---don't miss a single note of JAZZ in the GARDEN!
