As a husband/wife team we've collaborated over the past ten years combining our individual sensibilities into a unique 'blended style'. We take the best elements of traditional and contemporary photography to create images that tell the story of your weddingday. At times that means stepping back and quietly catching moments as they happen and at other times lending a hand to ensure every special event at your wedding is translated into a lasting memory.



After being partners, shooting over 500 weddings, we developed something like a dance, we know each other’s moves and coverage and we completely compliment each other.



We want you to trust that on your wedding day you can relax and enjoy yourself knowing we are capturing all the action, all the love, all the little moments and all of the details of the day.



Your memories are safe with us.

So, lets chat! coffee, tea, skype, lunch, email or even a phone call (usually works best). Read less

Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
We've photographed over 500 weddings, we've see it all. From candlelight only events and overcast days to harsh sunlight, we can handle it with great results.
Is your media preference film or digital?
We photograph all of our weddings using high end professional Canon 'digital' equipment. Film, haven't used it in years. Digital has achieved the state where it is dependable and creates incredible quality photographs. All major publications and news agencies use digital. A print made from a decent sized digital file is indistinguishable from one made from film.
How many photographers do you work with?
Two, Patrice and Stephen, always. If you book with us you get us not a substitute, it doesn't matter if you choose to go with the most basic service we offer. It's a lot more fun to shoot with a partner, we get better coverage and you get more images.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Patrice and Stephen are the only photographers at Aaronstadt. We have never missed a wedding.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
We never book more than one wedding a day. We want to devote all of our energies and focus to make the coverage the very best it can be.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
We have associations with many other photographers in the area. Many of them have actually been trained by us. In the unusual circumstance that we were not able to attend and photograph the wedding it would be covered.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
We use professional Canon cameras, lenses and flashes. Our supplemental lighting (for formals and the photobooth) consists of Alien Bee mono-lights with wireless transceivers.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes; cameras, flashes, flashcards, strobes and brownies. We used to carry an additional inflatable photographer for those events where people didn't think that there were enough of us already but obnoxious guests kept poking it with a fork. It took too much of our time to patch the holes. Now, inflatable brides, grooms, bridal party members and guests are available but only by special request and must be reserved one year in advance.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Our price is organized by 'package' (more info is available on the website).
 However, time can be added to any package. We never leave an event before checking to see if you need us to stay longer
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
We are always available if an event goes long. We charge $150/hr and bill in 1/2 hr increments ($75.00) We never do money 'stuff' on the day of the wedding, We would bill you later.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
If there is action going on we are shooting. There are 'moments' during the day when it is possible to 'take 5' without actually scheduling breaks into the day. We are provided meals my our clients.
Do you charge for travel?
We include 30 mile and 1 hour of travel with any package. Some of our more inclusive packages extend the mileage allowance to 2.5 hours and 100 miles. After the mileage allowance is met we charge .45/mile + $25./hr.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
We post 30 - 35 i mages to our blog within days of the wedding then two to four weeks after the wedding we send an email notice and directions on how to access a private preview gallery for viewing your images
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
Electronic online images.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
The preview website is 'hosted' for six months with a six month extension upon request.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
We 'share' the copyright with you.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
When we initiate a contract there is an area where you may give us permission to publish or not, it is up to you.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Every wedding includes copyright free reproduction quality digital files on DVD-ROM as well as images optimized for FaceBook
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes. Once the images are carefully edited and arranged in a easy to view story of your wedding, they are uploaded to a password protected website where you and your family and friends can preview and/or order images.
What kind of albums do you offer?
We offer digital flush mount albums and coffee table books
When will the client get the final album?
That depends upon the type of album you decide to include in your package, how long it takes you to choose which images are going into it and in the case of a digital album, how long it takes for you to approve the design once we have created it.

Stephen and Patrice, the owners of Aaronstadt Studios Photography were an absolute joy to work with! We selected them because of the beautiful samples we saw and how warm and funny they were when we met with them. Another thing that was so wonderful was that they helped us plan the flow of the wedding day and because we followed their plan, we got hundreds of fabulous photos! While at the wedding they were funny, kind, and warm. They made us feel so comfortable that we could forget that we were being photographed, which made it so much fun and we ended up with a lot of great pictures! It's obvious that they love what they do and that they have been doing it for years. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to any couple and I will definitely use them for future photography projects.

Stephen and Patrice did a fantastic job with both our engagement and our wedding photography and we could not have been happier! They were innovative and spontaneous, capitalizing on spur of the moment shots which truly captured the spirit of the day. They were both fun and easy to work with and made the day feel very relaxed. In the background, they found time to create incredible still life photos, incorporating our rings, flowers, and other accessories. And the wedding pics turned out amazing!

One thing I thought was unique was that our pre-wedding meeting included a tutorial session on how to make the shots come out better, i.e. how to hold the ring so that your hand doesn’t block the picture of it going onto the finger, where to hold your hands during the first dance so your faces can be seen, etc., VERY helpful, as we wouldn’t have known any of that if they hadn’t shown us!

My husband and I would recommend Aaronstadt Studios Photography to anyone looking for a great wedding photographer. One of my favorite things about them is that you are really getting two photographers for the price of one. It was so nice to be able to have a photographer with me and my bridesmaids while I was getting ready, but also a photographer that was with the guys while my husband was getting ready. Stephen and Patrice make a great team. They are a perfect combination of serious and fun! Our pictures turned out great! I can't wait to get them all back. The prices were very reasonable for what we received in our package. My husband has commented several times what wonderful work they do and how great the pictures have turned out. They really are amazing...if anything go to their website and check out some of their blog samples. I promise you won't be disappointed.

Thank you Dana. You and Warren were such a pleaure to work with. That always makes for great pictures. Thank you also for suggesting couples check out our Blog/Sample weddings. We post around 30 images about a half week after the wedding and have been doing that for the last couple of years so there are lots of weddings to see. Those same images are also provided at Facebook size. We hope you took advantage of those. By the way, Stephen is designing your album right now!

We hired Stephen and Patrice of Aaronstadt photography to photograph our outdoor summer wedding and we couldn’t have been happier with both their service and quality of pictures. They were not only very professional (and experienced!) but so much fun to work with! They are super friendly, helpful, organized, and provide outstanding service. What I especially liked about them is that they provide all sorts of help tips and tricks as you are planning for your wedding & ceremony that really provided a LOT of value. For example, they showed us how to put our wedding rings on each other’s fingers so we could get just the right picture during the ceremony- and it worked! I highly recommend Stephen & Patrice to any couple getting married- you will not be disappointed!!

Hi Cara, It's our goal to capture as much of the day as possible. The emotions, excitement as well as everything going on that may not catch the bride and grooms attention. Thanks for letting us know we did that for you. By the way, each year we have a drawing for a week in Pueto Vallata at our beachside timeshare for one of our brides and grooms. Cara and Sam were 2012 winners and had a great time. You can read their comments on the Aaronstadt Facebook page. Our next drawing takes place Valentines day 2013.

Epitome of Perfection!!! My wedding was August 6, 2011...just a few days ago, and I have already seen 33 pictures (known as teasers) from my wedding. All I can say is...I am in awe of every photo that was shown. The colors are so vivid, and the images are crystal clear. From the first meeting over a year ago, to the actual wedding day, Patrice and Stephen have been the ideal photographers. They are extremely detailed and organized. In addition they very passionate about their work, and truly love what they do. They helped make my day run so smoothly. My husband and I are still commenting on how much we loved our photographers. In fact, everyone in attendance at my wedding expressed how much they admired and enjoyed Stephen and Patrice. I have received several compliments on my choice in photographers. So much that the bestman and groomsman (both whom are engaged) have asked for their information for each of their weddings. Patrice and Stephen of Aaronstadt Studios are terrific wedding photographers! This husband and wife team is experts in customer service. Their knowledge and expertise in photography have given them a competitive edge. They see life through a camera lens, but show you the world in which it was meant to be seen. Their creative, charismatic, and professional demeanor captured our wedding day perfectly. For quality, speed, and accuracy, I highly recommend Aaronstadt Studios for your memorable events!

Great photographers. They were very organized and helped us plan out aspects of our wedding we didn't even think about. Very helpful on the day of the wedding while also respecting our privacy. Having a pair who work very well together was great and sped things up as we did most of our shots prior to the ceremony. Highly recommended. Stephen even re-bustled the wedding dress that was baffling the bridesmaids.

Aaronstadt did an Amazing job! We got married up at Timberline last spring and we loved all our pictures. They give you pointers before your wedding on how to take good pictures, so they can capture all the important events. They were very organized and we highly recommend them. Plus you get a lot for what you pay for and it's high quality! My advice to all the future brides and grooms is to check them out and follow their timeline planner.

Phenomenal photographers!!! Stephen and Patrice are professional and personable. Everyone loved them and still talk about how wonderful they are. They photographed absolutely everything. They took individual pictures of all the couples, families and I think there is a picture of my husband and I with almost every single person who attended our wedding and reception. Since there were two photographers taking pictures, we didn't have to worry about anything being missed. We got prices from several photographers and they are by far the best price. We planned every detail of our wedding and they helped guide us through each phase of the wedding day. We will be using them for all of our photography needs in the future.

The big day can be so stressful! We discovered about 500 weddings ago that if the bride and groom are stressed it's going to be a challenge get happy pictures of them. Now we try to share all we've learned over the years to help our couples enjoy their wedding as much as possible. What a difference that has made! Thanks for pointing that out Julie.

Aaronstadt Studios is AMAZING! Stephen and Patrice work so great together, and included us in every step of the way. Their organization, attention to detail and prep work leading up to the wedding is outstanding. When the big day arrived, we knew the plan and were able to relax and take their lead. They had fun suggestions for the formal shots and captured our silly candid moments too. We also added a photo booth that they offered to our package for during the reception, our guest had so much fun and are still talking about it. Now that the fun and excitement of the wedding is over we now have many memories captured and a beautiful wedding album that we will treasure for a life time.

We found our photographers for life, and plan on having them help us capture all the big events for us that come after marriage. We highly recommend Aaronstadt Studios.

Aaronstadt Studios Photography responded with the following comments:

Many of our clients are on a budget and watch their bottom line very carefully. If this is the case we try to help by discussing the day with them in order to create an itinerary which will best serve them with the time they have allowed for our services. That being said, on the day of the wedding we allow things to happen naturally unless the Bride and Groom have specifically told us, "keep us on schedule" which was the case here.

Stephen and Patrice at Aaronstadt's did an excellent job at our son's June 20th,2009 wedding. From the prewedding meeting with the bride and groom to the arrival of the DVD of the wedding photos in under a week after the wedding; they exceeded our expectations. I was impressed with the tone they set for the actual day. They have such a calm and organized approach while capturing fun photos. Photos that captured the solemness of the occasion as well as the joy and happiness of the wedding ceremony and the reception afterwards. I feel like we really got "double" the service, value, and attention without paying double the cost.

They are an amazing photography company. We highly reccomend them. They took great shots, helped with the timeline of the wedding day and have amazing personalities. Plus they are a great deal, you get two photographers, they meet with you for an hour a few weeks prior to the wedding and help you iron out kinks, they take TONS of photos and got all the shots we wanted and more. We love our photos!!!! Plus they dont make you pay extra to get the rights to your photos. We loved them!!!!!!!!

Easily five stars. My wife and I received so many compliments from our family and friends on our photographers. They were well organized, very friendly and personable, non intrusive and very respectful. They provided photos of most if not everyone in attendance and we barely even noticed they were around once the ceremony started, yet they got great close-ups and covered the room nicely since there were two photographers.

There were too many incredible moments that were caught on film to be able to say that we had just one favorite. The “first look” session was pretty special as well as signing the marriage license. They got excellent photos of the venue and the rings and bouquet. There were a couple of great photos of us just prior to eating dinner; I could go on and on. We certainly had a tough time trying to figure out which photos we wanted for our albums and ended up purchasing extras anyhow. I also want to mention that they were very flexible on their schedule and they cooperatively worked with us and the venue staff on the tail-end of the event as there were delays on the special event throughout the reception.

I really cannot rave enough about Stephan and Patrice! They have many talents that I can only begin to explain. When we first met with them, we felt completely confident that they would be our number one choice for our wedding day. They made us feel at ease with their level of experience and professional yet social personalities. They have created a system to get you organized long before the wedding day, so that when it comes, you have no worries. They are prompt, kind, creative and professional in every way. The photos captured some incredible moments and I am thankful for them. The value of their packages is fantastic! I really can't say enough to convince you that you would not regret hiring them! Meet with them, and you will see. They made the day that was a blur come into focus by being our extra set of eyes.

The husband and wife team were great to work with and our photos turned out beautifully. I was glad they recommended taking photos before hand because it took less time away from our ceremony.

My cousin used Aaronstadt Studios for her wedding so I already knew of their work. I was very pleased with the pictures and the level of service. I feel like the images they captured on my wedding day are priceless. I definately plan on using them in future for other photography needs. I would recommend Aaron Stadt to every bride!

Stephen and Patrice were wonderful to work with. My husband and I met with them several times prior to the wedding and they're years of work have left them with a wealth of advice and tips for making the most out of your photographs of your wedding day. Our wedding party was small but we had a host of family members who wanted portait pictures. We were able to work out a timeline with them that met both needs of our special day and allowed family and friends to benefit as well. The final work on our digit photo album was absolutely fabulous and a fantastic representation of the day!

Aaronstadt provided excellent quality photographs for a very reasonable cost. They were incredibly organized, responsible, professional and helped make the day extra special. Stephen and Patrice were responsive to all questions and worked with us to make sure they got all of the pictures that were important to us. They were creative in organizing the group shots, and we got some incredible photos!

Stephen and Patrice were fantastic to work with. I absolutely love my pictures! From the day we booked them as our photographer we felt taken care of. They were incredibly organized before and during the wedding which helped in making sure that we got every picture possible. We have so many incredible pictures that we are having a hard time narrowing down our choices. Aaronstadt Studios is a fantastic photography company to work with. Turst me, they are worth the money!

A little bossy at the ceremony. Granted that is needed a little to keep on track. The photography was great and the end product is fantastic. Spend your money on the photos...its the one thing you really keep around...besides the spouse you get with the whole thing!

Aaronstadt Studios Photography responded with the following comments:

At the time of this wedding Aaronstadt consisted of several teams of photographers. This wedding was not shot by Stephen and Patrice (owners and lead photographers). Because we have a personal investment in each wedding we have decided to let our contract photographers pursue their own interests so that we (Stephen and Patrice) are shooting every wedding. We pride ourselves on being flexible and fun. We really enjoy this business and want you to enjoy it as well.
