Jim DeRosa Bad Business for Wedding Couples Entertainment Concepts Music and Event Services or Event Galleria

Updated on December 17, 2009

Jim DeRosa - Wedding Theif!

Bad Business for Wedding Couples!

Jim DeRosa, from Event Galleria, now with Entertainment Concepts Music and Event Services, was contracted to photograph my wife and my wedding and prepare a wedding album for us. July 28th 2009 was our two year wedding anniversary and we still have no wedding album. I have contacted him on multiple occasions and he has either promised me things he has not delivered on or just ignored my calls and neglected to call/email me back. My wife and I have paid for our album in full. He has lied to my wife and me on several occasions. All we want is the photographs and memories from our wedding. Jim has stolen those from us.

To give you a warning of who Jim is, he has changed locations at least three times that I know of. He has operated under multiple business names. He has an F Rating for the Better business bureau with 32 complaints http://www.bbb.org/new-jersey/business-reviews/photography-and-video-services/event-galleria-in-florham-park-nj-90010011 He has been put on shame on you http://www.myfoxny.com/dpp/news/Shame_Shame_Shame_Event_Galleria

We need to collectively stand up to this person and ensure he doesn't continue to conduct business in this manner. I have reached out to a few class action lawyers who can help us all and the many others out there that are in the same situation.

The last conversation I had with one of Jim's Subcontractors, Noel, I was told there are up to 50+ Albums that still have yet to be created. Jim is currently being sued by Noel's company, Noel Marie Photography, and no Albums are going to be made in the near future. The sad thing is Photography is only one aspect of Jim's businesses.

Jim is a bad wedding photographer coordinator and an even worse business man. If you are a person that has done business with Jim DeRosa and are in a similar situation to me we now have help. If you want to move forward and stand up to Jim DeRosa please e-mail your contact info below with a detailed outline of your situation and we will work with an Attorney at no charge to fight to get our money, photos/albums, videos/dvd's and memories back. I have also emailed a few newspapers about our situation. I hope to create awareness about what a thief Jim DeRosa is so no one has the same experiences that we did.

Please post a comment in regard to your situation on my new blog about Jim DeRosa at http://jimderosaentertainmentconcepts.blogspot.com/ This way other wedding couples will know that he is working under a different name and don't get hurt by him. This blog will also act as a forum where we can get more information about this class action lawsuit, future newspaper articles and resolution with our complaints.

The lawyers recommendation was to do the following:

File a complaint with the better business bureau. https://odr.bbb.org/odrweb/public/getstarted.aspx?siteID=89

File a Complaint with the Office of Consumer Complaints (Division of Consumer Affairs) http://www.state.nj.us/lps/ca/ocp/ocpform2.htm

Take Jim DeRosa to Small Claims Court to get your money back. You can have another wedding photographer finish your Album, Video or whatever he has not completed. Get a proposal from another wedding vendor to finish what Jim has not completed and bring a copy of all of your paperwork, contract, mails ect. with you to court. http://www.judiciary.state.nj.us/civil/civ-02.htm (There have been so many people that have taken Jim DeRosa to Small Claims Court so your case should be easy to win.)

My recommendation is the Following: [My goal is to have enough past customers of event galleria comment on these pages so when someone searches for his company on any search engine (google) our blog or reviews will come up next to his website.]

Please post a comment on my blog site about Jim DeRosa in regard to your experience. http://jimderosaentertainmentconcepts.blogspot.com/2009/07/bad-business.html

Please post a comment on my hub page about you experience with Jim DeRosa http://hubpages.com/hub/JimDeRosa-Bad-Business-for-Wedding-Couples-Entertainment-Concepts-Music-and-Event-Services-or-Event-Galleria

Please post a comment on Jim DeRosa's Rip Off Report Page about your experience. http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/477/ripoff0477185.htm

Go to the theknot.com and post your experience with Jim DeRosa on the Blog Page http://talk.theknot.com/boards/main_frame.aspx?page=ShowForum.aspx?ForumID=90 TheKnot.com is the largest forum for weddings. This is the best way to make people aware of Jim's bad business practices.

If each one of you can do half of these things than Jim DeRosa won't be able to take advantage of future wedding couples. This guy looked me right in the eye and lied to my face on several locations. He took my money and never delivered my wedding photos. My wife still cries that we don't have our wedding album. I need your help to make sure this doesn't happen to anyone else.

Shame on You, Jim DeRosa, Event Galleria, Entertainment Concepts Music and Event Services

      Looks like Noel and hubby have someone posting on their behalf. "whosreallythescumbag?" is obviously them or a family member/friend.

      Noel was probably offered a deal that was too good to be true and fell for it hook line and wedding albums too. Greedy but probably not too bright, unlike DeRosa, who knew what he was doing. When she finally realized she was not going to make the big bucks she thought was going to, a lawyer sitting on a local bar stool probably told her how to cut and run from this mess. Are we really going to feel sorry for Noel? DeRosa and Noel tried to use each other but DeRosa was much smarter. At this point I would be thrilled if we just had discs of the unedited video and or photography but I doubt they have been archived this long.

      whosreallythescumbag? 5 years ago

      all this time later none of us have anything. so many people left with only pictures, no albums, no videos, just broken promises. yet in all this i cant help but wonder, why is it that the videographer and jim derosa are still in business?? why does derosa still live in the same house, run the same business model under yet a new name. im as angry a derosa as the rest of you, yet all the hatred and vitrol for noel seems slightly unwarranted. she was simply a bystander in the mess as it unfolded. she didnt own the business, and when it was time to go to court, she was dismissed from our case. turns out the terms of her deal with derosa were empty promises as well, he was always the owner of event galleria and whatever other companies he ran his shell game under. do you really think that someone just starting their lives, and business out would rip people off...only to file bankruptcy and give it all up and have nothing?? think about it...jim derosa still lives in his home, still owns a beach home, and still perpetuates the same scam on unwitting young couples everyday...maybe your anger should be placed squarely on the shoulders of the real scumbag..i know who i wrote my checks to, i know who cashed them, that is the guilty party in my mind.

      I HATE THIS SCUMBAG WITH A PASSION. We hired him 6 years ago today to photograph and record our wedding, and every anniversary we share we are reminded that we have NOTHING to remember the best day of our lives by. He is a disgrace and should be held accountable for ruining peoples memories and stealing their money. If you ask me Noel is no better. She knew who she was in bed with and went right along with his con artist ways. Probably made a good buck for it as well. The should both rot. I'm willing to join any lawsuit or manhunt there is! I DISPISE HIM!

      My husband and I are going through a very similar story with Keith Renn, of Renn Weddings, LLC, Premier Portraits, Renn Photography, Renn Photo Design, and who knows what other names he uses. Keith Renn scams people in his home studio located in Exton, PA. He took my money, photos at my wedding, and is now holding the pictures hostage against us. We are going through hell trying to get what we paid for. We've found several other couples with similar experiences. He has an F rating on the BBB under the names Renn Photography and RennWedding Photographer, both in Exton PA. Along with failing to understand the terms of the contract (which state that you cannot sue him in small claims court), and not researching him ahead of time, we have been fighting like heck to get our wedding photos that we paid for in full. It seems Keith knows how to beat you down so hard that most couples who end up getting a private attorney end up having to sign a release stating that they won't sue and pay him more money in order to get their pictures and they just do those things and give up. I won't give up. I want everyone to know that Keith Renn located in Exton, PA is a scam artist, a deceptive person, and a bad person to have in the community. I don't understand how he can wake up everyday and live with himself after breaking the hearts of so many young couples. But he is like the devil. He has a plan and he continues to get away with it. Please pass the word around about Keith Renn, who has changed his website, contact info, business names, etc. several times in the past year. Down with Renn Weddings, LLC! I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers that you get what you rightfully deserve. No one should have to go through this crap when they are supposed to be focused on one of the best times in their lives!

Of course it's through all the cash he takes from people, I'm sure he does NOT report everything to the IRS...

      Daniel (from four weeks ago),

      I find it laughable that you say not to criticize Jim and Noel until you have reached out and spoken to them about their behavior. A common thread running through all of the complaints against them is that they cut off all communication with their clients. For many of their clients, the story goes like this -- Hire Jim and Noel, believe that they are good people until after the wedding, Jim and Noel avoid all communication, file for bankruptcy, and start Sugar Magnolia Event Services in Florida to escape accountability. If Jim and Noel were the god people who simply got mixed up in somebody else's mess like you claim, then why did they never apologize to their victims and explain what happened. I certainly mean victims too as they did not sign contracts with many of their clients until after they were already in trouble. Their victims believe that they had to have known that there was no chance of fulfilling those contracts when they had already defaulted on many.

      Walking in another's shoes is great, but it is unnecessary if you already know all the facts.

      Just remember, Noel and her husband jim constantly monitor this site so don't believe any of the sympathetic posts. Daniel, Concerned, Ect are just postings from Noel/Jim and Jim's bothers. Maybe they have a friend out their as well who helps with sympathy for Noel posts. DeRosa started this scam and then handed if off to Noel. Noel and her husband did not completely realize what they were getting into. But being the pigs that they are, took the deal knowing that they have nothing to loose and everything to gain by not doing any work or laying out any money for products promised to customers. Since they have zero net worth on paper it was easy for them to run away to an affluent part of Florida and live with "Daniel" and other Michalskis. DeRosa is really the one everyone should be going after since he has assets and still resides in East Hanover and started the whole thing. Derosa knows what he is doing and prides himself on it because he is providing for his family. IE Tony Soprano complex with out psychiatric care. This man only responds to things that can actually touch him. Just FYI !

      My wife and I hired Jim and Noel Michalski of Noel Marie Photography for our wedding last year. After the wedding, they never produced an album for us and then moved away to Florida. They are now operating as Sugar Magnolia Event Services in Florida. If you want to know what they are really like, google "Noel Marie Photography" and read the posts about them. They disappointed many people while they still lived in New Jersey.

      Jim has to prove to the judge he was incorporate at the time. You just have to tell the judge he wasn't incorporate. Then Jim has to show he was.

      To Daniel, (aka Jim and Noel Michalski)-it's pretty obviouse!!!

      Jim and Noel Michalski signed a contract with my wife and I, one year after thier first in court law suit against them, they've been ripping couples off for years, they knew that they were not going to give us what we paid for before we even met, as they did to many couples, MANY!!! So Daniel(JIM and or Noel) you should know the truth before you open your stupid mouth. By the way the contract was with Jim and Noel Michalski, not james Derosa, so it was them who ripped me off not Derosa.

      Thanks for you time Daniel(aka Jim and Noel Michalski)

      P.S False Aligations??? So I guess the judge was wrong too??? Get a life!!!

      AK,

      I can sit here and honestly say that it is time to step back and step away from emotions... I deal with emotional people and circumstances everyday that I don my uniform and strap my side arm on my hip. I have learned in 11 years that the only true way to resolve situations similar to these is to remove the emotions and take a look at the big picture. I think that my life's experiences have helped me deal with Jim and Noel and the situation they are involved in and where the product may be.

      I find it interesting that the only thing you seem to disagree with from my previous post is that of the emotional disassociation. So I guess you find it acceptable that ERIK and his comments are inflammatory and scandalous?

      I find that it is in my personal composition to defend those that have been victimized... all too often they do not have the proper voice or representation.

      In closing, you seem to disagree and just feel you cannot have an emotional disassociation but the unfounded claims are unnecessary.

      I have never heard of any of the above vendors - but I apologize that all these people have been so negatively impacted and affected.

      Daniel - I have to strongly disagree. "In summary, you need to step away from your emotions and move on." A wedding is a MONUMENTAL part of someones life - so I think it is very valid, deserved and expected for the people who have been affected by the above mentioned vendors to act/behave the way they have.

      It sounds to me as though you're quite close to the vendors above...why else would you so strongly defend these people.
