Hi my name is Victoria Hankins and I used drop to design for my wedding because I won a free bridal shoot with them at a bridal show. When we did our consultants for that we were so impressed we decided to use them for the whole wedding. I don't think I can put in to words how amazing they were. On top of being amazing photographers Steven, Susan and thier little boy are amazing people. I don't know what I would've done is Susan wasn't with me while the girls were getting ready. My MoH was getting upset because I wanted the wedding outside like we planned cause it was drizzling out side and it looked like it would go away pretty quick in the radar but she wasn't having it she fought everyone even my sister in law to be chewed her out and still that didn't shut her up. But all my vendors and especially Susan and Steven were pushing for what me and Zach wanted and that meant the world to me. They even got this wonderful shot that I will treasure forever of the clouds opening up to blue sky right before the ceremony. I'm so glad they Steven got that photo. Susan was with me and I was just starring of into the distance when she smiled and pointed for me to look out the window as the sky was opening up. They were super felxible things got switched up alot my dad didnt come, my step dad did, but had to leave early cause 4 of his friends were in a serious crash so he needed to get back. They just rolled with it and made sure I got pictures with him and pictures of my dance with him. With all the bumps in the road they still did more than we could've ever hoped for. They were even there until we went to bed to make sure we got shots of everything that we wanted. This was very good because me and my husband forgot to get one of our new rings on our hands during the photos due to the crazyness. They are amazing and I will recommend them to everyone I can . I mention all the stuff that happened just to show how amazing they are. I hope to use them again when I have kids.

Vicki, I can't tell you how honored we were to capture your wedding. I knew the clouds were going to clear up and you were going to have the outdoor wedding you had envisioned. Working on your photographs it's beautiful to see the love you and Zach share and I hope your album will bring you years of future smiles as you remember the memories.

Steven and Susan were great! They were very easy to get in touch with for all our planning needs. They viewed both our church and reception venues prior to the wedding day. On the day of the event, they managed to get some great shots, despite us losing power during our ceremony. They did a nice job getting our large families to cooperate for family photos, and kept a low profile during the rest of the ceremony and reception. The photos took only a few weeks to complete, and we are very happy with the product.

Steven and Susan were amazing! We did our engagement photos and wedding photos with them! They worked with our crazy schedules and made it easy and fun! When I had to cancel my bridal portraits because I had emergency surgery 1 month before the wedding...they came to the venue early to get my pictures that day! After the obligatory posed pictures, we didn't even know they were there! They made our wedding day so easy by coordinating with the DJ and the venue. Steven made sure to keep in touch throughout the planning process and helped us with our timeline for the big day! They made sure everything was planned and helped us remember things that we would have forgotten or never thought of! The final product is amazing and we love sharing it with everyone! Every photo was editted and looked wonderful! Thanks guys and great work!!!

My wedding was almost six months ago, but the memories that Steven and Susan were able to capture will last a lifetime. You can mark a great photographer if the photos they take can stir up emotions and bring you instantly back to your special moment. Drop to Design does just that, looking back on our photos, I am able to laugh and shed tears of joy for that perfect day. Despite difficult circumstances regarding the weather and having to move into a really tight indoor space, Drop to Design captured our wedding beautifully. We just moved into our new home and I cannot wait to order and display the memories they captured. My two favorite things that Steven and Susan did are my bridal portraits and our videography. Bridal portraits are included in most of their packages and Steven and Susan took so much care, attention, and time to make sure that they were perfect. I am so glad that I took advantage of getting the Bridal portraits done because I wouldn't have had time to have these great photos done on our actual wedding day. As for videography, my husband and I were on the fence about whether to spend the extra money. We now agree that it was the best decision that we every made. Steven conveinced us by saying the photos are for now and the video is for later. While this is true, I believe the video is for always. Your wedding day goes by so fast and things are such a blur. The video captures all of the precious moments and even things that we hadn't seen that day or didn't remember happening. We have watched, laughed, and cried through our video so many times already, and I am sure that we will continue to watch it with the same amount of joy forever. Thank you Steven and Susan for the wonderful job that you did capturing this most important day.

Steven and Susan are truly one of a kind. They were not only professional, wonderful to work with, took time to listen to what we wanted and made it happen (even if that meant Steven taking a group wedding photo atop a 15 foot ladder!) but they were also wonderful people with a passion and talent for making anyone feel beautiful. I only wished we had gotten them to do cinematography at our wedding as well.
They respond quickly, are very flexible with their schedule and were early to every session we had with them.
You will NOT be disappointed!

Steve and Susan and their crew were awesome...not even the rain on my wedding day stood a chance.

Hey Steven and Susan,
Mosey and I were up in Connecticut last weekend and picked up our copy of
the wedding video from Meghan. This morning we had the opportunity to
finish looking at all of it and I had to drop you a note to tell you how
pleased we were with the final product. So many memories came flooding back
and it was great fun reliving that wonderful day. We especially enjoyed the
"Memories" compilation at the end...the editing was superb and it certainly
delivered on the "memories".
Thanks for a wonderful record of Meg and Nick's great day...we will cherish
the memories even more so given this outstanding video.
