Steve was so easy to work with. He captured such beautiful moments from our wedding without us even noticing he was there. We only had our family, 5 people with us and the kids, and he treated it just as he would a large big party. We have received so many compliments on our photos. He was just amazing

Hoffmann is the best of the best!! We flew him to VT to photograph our daughter's wedding and we were not disappointed. Not only was he the ultimate professional while at the same time being friendly and personable, but the photos are unbelievable. They truly tell the story of the events--they take you back to relive every moment. It isn't just a still photo--it is truly a storybook, capturing every moment, not staged, just natural, beautiful, moments you might have missed or forgotten are captured in film forever and in such a beautiful way. You will not be disappointed if you book with Hoffmann!!!

My name is Heidi Congdon and I recently had the pleasure of having Steve Hoffmann as our photographer at my wedding. When searching for a photographer, I had several qualities I was looking for: attention to detail, flexibility, quality, and someone who didn't need to be directed. Steve possesses every single one of these qualities.

When reviewing his work, every single detail is captured. Not a single memory is missed. He is more than happy to travel. We flew him out to Vermont and he went right to work capturing every single moment and detail from the beginning of the rehearsal dinner right through the end of our reception. He has an amazing sense of humor, while being incredibly professional.

Of course after coming back from our honeymoon, the first thing that we wanted to do was look at photos. And Steve did not disappoint. All of our photos were ready to view in a short amount of time. The pictures are not simply photos. They tell a story. They show every detail. They show every emotion of the day. They are captivating.

I would recommend Steve Hoffmann, Hoffmann Photographer, for any occasion. You won't be disappointed.

So we chose to do our photos before the wedding and I am so glad we did. Our wedding day rained all day (except the ceremony) and it was dark during photo time; however, Steve still made them absolutely amazing. We can't stop looking through all of them. I am so impressed by his professionalism and skills that shined through from start to finish. The only hard part is trying to pick which ones we want for our photo album since they all look great! He truly captured the love and fun from the evening! Steve Hoffman rocks!

Choosing a photographer can be one of the most critical details in planning your Wedding. You cross your fingers that you are able to find the perfect person to capture all of your special moments and freeze "Your Moment" in time. Steve Hoffmann is definitely that person!

Hoffmann has a genuine style that puts everyone at ease. He moves from point to point capturing genuine shots & does everything he can to get the Perfect Shot (like climb over a balcony to get a beautiful panoramic shot of our ceremony).

One thing I know for sure is you won't regret choosing Hoffmann as your photographer!

Thank you SO MUCH Hoffman for making my daughters WEDDING SO UNBELIEVABLE. Hoffman is AMAZING!! Hoffman was the photgrapher at my daughter and now son-in-laws wedding at the Pantheon Mansion. I was planning on using a friend who is a professional photographer but my daughter insisted on us using Hoffman. He was FANTASTIC. I could not have asked for anyone better. Hoffman captured every moment of this spectacular wedding. I am so looking forward to seeing all the pictures. I highly recommend Hoffman to any new bride out there if you want amazing pictures to look back on in the years to come.
THANK YOU HOFFMAN

Planning a wedding is hectic enough. The last thing you need to be is burdened with the "task" of finding a photographer. After doing my own rigorous research, I came across Hoffmann. The reviews you will read are deadly accurate. Hoffmann and his team "preserved" my special day for a lifetime to come. It is refreshing that such quality and service is provided at a reasonable price! (If you are planning a wedding, you know how quickly things can add up.) So, if you are on the fence about who to choose, stress no more...go with Hoffmann and his team, you won't regret it (especially Mike Villa...he's awesome)!

Working with Hoffman during the engagement shoot and on my wedding day was wonderful. Before the engagement photo shoot I was a bit nervous, but Hoffman worked with our ideas and photos came out beautiful. I was even able to make a photo collage from the engagement shoot and include it in our wedding invitations. I was also able to decorate the reception with the photos, which really tied in the whole theme. I received so many compliments from them.

Since the engagement shoot, three guests have requested his name and number to have them take their family portraits. Hoffman is also really great about getting the photos to the individuals quickly and during the wedding preparations every email and phone call was returned that very same day.

As far as the wedding is concerned, Hoffman was completely flexible with pictures that I wanted. He traveled to three different locations: where I got ready, the chapel, and the reception. He captured my day in every stage of getting ready and was able to capture very intimate moment of the bridesmaids, my father, and me. I was completely amazed at all the details he captured of the chapel decorations and flowers, my husband’s expressions and my expressions during the ceremony, and all over our guests. (I hardly noticed any decorations or people’s faces because I was so focused on my husband, so it was nice to have them captured on film to look back on.)

The pictures themselves are so special because they communicate through Hoffman's photography the precious day I experienced. I can see and identify how each picture, portrait, or shot says how special, significant, and monumentus that day was to my husband and me. I had no idea that the photos would hold so much detail that displayed the most important decision I made in my life and basically tell a beautiful story.

One of my favorite parts of Hoffman's photography was his attentiveness to detail and the whole ability to capture the theme of the wedding. I have wonderful pictures of the different decorations that will look great in a photo book.

The last thing that Hoffman captured that I am so very thankful for is the faces of my guest interacting and having a wonderful time. Some of my guests have requested the pictures of themselves at the wedding because they look so beautiful. :-)

We chose Hoffman Photography to do our engagement and wedding photography and we are absolutely thrilled with the results. Hoffman showed the clearest attention to detail and made the whole picture taking experience fun and easy for the two of us and all of our family and friends. From the engagement shoot to the bridal shoot to the full day wedding ceremony and reception coverage, we couldn't be happier with results. Even our wedding guests are requesting prints of the pictures Hoffman Photography captured of them. (10 out of 10 Stars)

DON'T HIRE HOFFMANN - unless you want to be disappointed. That's exactly how my now, husband and I felt after meeting him on our wedding day and from seeing the photos a month after the wedding. To be completely HONEST with you all, I thought Hoffmann was a good photographer from his blogs and website and that's why I hired him. Unfortunately, it was the BIGGEST MISTAKE/decision of my wedding day! People that know me.. know I LOVE photos and taking pictures and having pictures taken of me (modeling). Hoffmann's photos did not have a wow factor at all! He was missing photos from the day when he gave us the photos. In his description on this website about him I quote, "You can be confident that each moment and angle of history will be captured." That's incorrect! He missed the MOST IMPORTANT factors in our day! He missed the shots of the bouquet toss, garter toss, cake feeding (him feeding me), and on top of that - we extending him an hour on the wedding day to take photos of a cultural traditional formal wedding program during the end of the reception and for an hours time, he didn't take every step of the program/process. What a waste of money! On top of that, he left ON THE DOT.. he literally left and disappeared with no trace, he didn't even say goodbye to the bride and groom! The only way I knew he left is because I wanted a picture of something and asked for the photographer - the DJ said he left, 'cause his time was up. No other vendor did that. Some of you might be thinking that I did something to make this situation arise, but I didn't. Hoffmann may even be surprised that this is my review. I would be lucky if he remembered me. I loved all my vendors and they were all so willing and helpful before and during the wedding. Hoffmann was my only regret. And if I could redo anything about our wedding.. it would be only Hoffmann. I would've hired someone else. Maybe then I would be happy to look back at my photos and remember our special day through my photos. I don't think Hoffmann was passionate about what he is doing. I think he does it for the money. Because if he was passionate about it, I would've seen it through the photos. Really, I'm writing this review out of hurt and sadness and not anger. I really wish I could of hired someone else or that he did a better job in making my special day truly come out in the photos he took. I'm very glad my husband's family took a lot of photos (which are better than his) - they have the bouquet and garter toss with the flowers and garter in the air! These were photos I was expecting the professional to take but I guess I should've hired someone else to get those photos. *sigh* All in all, I have tears in my eyes when I look at the photos because he's missing so many major moments of our wedding day. I'm just saying, if a bride wrote this review and I read it before I thought about choosing him - I would've been a happier bride by not hiring him.

I think he does it for the money. Because if he was passionate about it, I would've seen it through the photos. Really, I'm writing this review out of hurt and sadness and not anger. I really wish I could of hired someone else or that he did a better job in making my special day truly come out in the photos he took. I'm very glad my husband's family took a lot of photos (which are better than his) - they have the bouquet and garter toss with the flowers and garter in the air! These were photos I was expecting the professional to take but I guess I should've hired someone else to get those photos. *sigh* All in all, I have tears in my eyes when I look at the photos because he's missing so many major moments of our wedding day. I'm just saying, if a bride wrote this review and I read it before I thought about choosing him - I would've been a happier bride by not hiring him. Read less

Hoffmann Photographer responded with the following comments:

This review is a huge surprise for me, as I had a great time at Jacquelyn's wedding and covered her event with 3 photographers. Anyone that would like to judge for themselves can view all 700 of Jacquelyn's beautiful wedding pictures at this link: http://www.pictage.com/1061913, including 3 different angles of the kiss, 40 pictures of their traditional Indonesian ceremony, pictures of the garter/bouquet toss, cake cutting, 30 custom art edits, etc, etc, etc. I have divided them into 17 different folders so they can be easily navigated. Anyone can quickly tell that many of the statements in this review are false! Furthermore, I have an e-mail from Jacquelyn telling me that the pictures came out great.

I have attempted to contact Jacquelyn since her wedding and she has not responded. I am not even sure that she wrote this review.

Unfortunately, Wedding Wire has proven extremely lazy in their ability to research the claims in this review. They say they are "too busy." No surprise. They are never too busy to send relentless e-mails and make phone calls to collect advertising $$.

Hoffman was referred to us by a friend for our July wedding. We found him to be extremely professional, friendly, and creative. He worked with us on discovering what we wanted to capture on our wedding day. He truly went the extra mile with us as clients. We felt very comfortable with Hoffman and his staff in providing us with amazing photos. We would recommend his services for any big event. Amazing photographer, indeed! ~Danielle & Edward Alvarez

Steve is the best! From the moment I interviewed him for our wedding, I knew my wedding pictures (and rehearsal pictures) were in good hands!

Throughout the planning process, Steve was extremely responsive and helpful with any questions that we had. He even went out of his way to recommend what turned out to be amazing vendors when we asked him for advice. The day of the wedding he arrived on time, captured all of the pictures on our shot list (and more!), and was great working with all the different members of our wedding party and families. We received so many compliments from our guests and wedding party the day of the wedding about how wonderful Steve was.

We received all of our proofs shortly after our wedding and they were absolutely stunning.They turned out even better than we could have imagined. Steve captured all of the special moments of our day and more, making it difficult to narrow it down to the picture limit for our album (which I consider a good thing!).

The next time that I'm in need of professional photography services I won't hesitate to call Steve, nor would I hesitate to recommend him to friends and family!

Hoffmann is a top-notch photographer and knows exactly how to adapt to his clients' personalities. We were referred to him by my maid of honor, who did a couple of family photo sessions with him and absolutely loved him. He did our engagement as well as our wedding photos. During our engagement session, I was a bit nervous because neither my husband nor I had ever had taken professional photos before, but Hoffmann made us feel extremely comfortable from the very beginning and we ended up having so much fun! When we got our engagement photos back, we were amazed at how natural and beautiful our pictures were - we received compliments from everyone we shared the photos with! Between the engagement session and our wedding day, Hoffmann made sure to keep in touch with me to stay up to date on our schedule, etc. He showed up right on time on the day of, and although everything was extremely hectic, he adapted very quickly and made things work. We were pressed for time the entire day, but he made sure to get all of the shots we wanted in while keeping our pushy wedding coordinators at bay. Additionally, our wedding happened to be on the ONE cloudy Saturday in Orange County, which I was worried about. HOWEVER, we've just gotten our wedding photographs back and they look absolutely beautiful - I don't even notice the lack of sunlight :) I couldn't imagine having anyone else photographing our most important day.

We got married on February 5th, 2011. Hoffman was the most impressive photographer I have ever worked with. Many of my friends that were there were from the Bay area and all were blown away by his "coolness, ease, and flexibility" with the entire day. It was seamless- he never was made a big deal of anything, and because of this, caught some very priceless shots, when we didn't even know he was snapping photos. He's a gem. If you are lucky enough that he is available on your wedding day- snatch him up- and pay him well. He's worth every single penny!!!!!

What a professional! Hoffman did my niece's wedding and she was 8 months pregnant and the groom didn't speak English! How about that for a challenge!
Hoff was fantastic; we didn't even know he was there. That is how it should be -- he caught the bride and groom's love which was the most important thing of the day.
I would not hesitate to recommend him!

Hoffmann did an incredible job photographing our 30-guest wedding! He was very responsive and answered all of my questions almost immediately. He and his 2nd photographer (Mike Villa) managed to capture so much of our event almost without our realizing they were there. I was concerned about having two photographers at such a small event - I didn't want to feel like I was being stalked by paparazzi, but Hoffmann and Mike did such a great job and made us feel at ease the entire time. The photos are beautiful and very natural! Hoffmann is a true professional and has an artistic (but not "artsy") style. We will definitely use Hoffmann to document future family events and portraits.

We picked Hoffman because of his incredible experience and fantastic personality. My husband is a little camera shy but once we met Hoffman the shots were endless. We were so comfortable around him that I was literally happy to see him on the wedding day. He showed up early, stayed late and even helped with some of my crazy bridal requests after the wedding once the photos were in. There were so many unexpected things that Hoffman caught that my whole family has been in tears while seeing his work of our wedding. I didn't have to have a huge "list" of shots we wanted prepared for him like many magazines suggest because Hoffman is such a professional that I didn't need to worry about it! With out a doubt I have already started to recommend him to all of the engaged girls I meet!

Steve Hoffman and his team were great for our wedding and got us the best possible package for what we needed.

Steve was a pleasure to work with, always responded to my emails quickly, he was on time, and made us feel so comfortable with getting our intimate shots and was very creative. On top of it, my feet were sooooo swollen during the wedding, and he took the picture of me putting my shoes on at an angle that you couldn't even tell.

My mother, who is the most fussiest person about photographs felt comfortable, she said she felt that as if the photographer wasn't even there.

On top of it, all the pictures he took really make me remember the day. Because my wedding day went by so fast that I felt as if it was a quick dream.

The list he provides for you, as a suggestion of pictures you want. Really think about all you really want. Aside from bride+goom+mil etc.
When I got my pictures back the few things I wanted pictures of weren't 'there but that was my fault, so Ladies/Gents specify whether you want your pictures to represent the people that were at your wedding and how they enjoyed it, or if you want the pictures to show the experience. Looking back now, I wish i had more pictures of the reception, of people dancing, the decorations, etc. I did get pictures of everyone that was there in intimate shots. Maybe some people want that, maybe they don't. I would have rather gotten pictures of all the different types of food, the dancing, the bride dancing for the money dance with people.

There is so much more to a wedding, photography etc. Make sure to tell your photographer (*ahem* Hoffman) every detail of your wedding, every tradition that you will be following. DO NOT OMIT ANYTHING. (I forgot to tell him about the entrance tradition for us with bread and salt, and the champagne class toss, he even told me that it would have been great pictures and he wished the could have set up his photographers to capture this, but I honesty failed to tell him) The better planned the wedding, the better plan of events, details etc you send to Hoffman the better pictures you will get. He really tries to capture all the important moments.

I wish I could just put a 4.9 for quality of service, but the highest it goes is 5, or 4.5 and Hoffman is not deserving for 4.5 of quality of service. The only mark down is the time it took for my pictures to get edited, and I had to remind him to send me the photos. I would have rather gotten a date when I would have the photos, etc just for convenience sake. But it's not a big deal, because I really felt that Hoffman and his team were my 'friends' who cared about my wedding, and we still keep in touch so I gave him the 5.

Also the photos I ordered from him had a white border around them.. But I think that is the printing companies issue, I wish I knew about that. But that's not Hoffman's issue.

One thing I was really impressed about, was he and his team managed to take PHENOMENAL groomsman pictures pictures in a meager, and somewhat messy studio apartment. The way the photos were taken made it look like the gents were getting ready in a swanky hotel.

Final note, I am really happy with my wedding pictures, they are beautiful, every time I look at them I smile and remember the wedding day. I was extremely pleased, he was kind, generous and hard working. A+ for his integrity, girls.. Just remember that it is worth every penny to get amazing wedding pictures.. you will have them as a reminder for the rest of your life, and you want a photographer that will capture the mood, and feel of your wedding, and your relationship with your husband, the joy and love that you share. Hoffman ( and his team) works extremely hard to provide that for you, but you do need to give direction, like any other vendor.

He was great for our engagement session and had two assistants and 9 total cameras at our wedding. Our guests were all commenting on large number of cameras there and wondering what kind of extravagant package we had purchased.

Steve Hoffmann was the most personable, humble, and comfortable photographer that I have ever been around at a wedding. He completely blended in with my bridesmaids and myself, which allowed him to catch us naturally and made for such stunning pictures. He was very quiet and unobtrusive during our entire wedding, but was able to capture the most picturesque and sincere moments between my groom and I, and our wedding party and guests. When I show people our wedding album he created for us, they are breathless. The pictures are so vivid, natural and timeless that people are shocked at the beauty of his photography. Hoffmann was well worth every cent we paid him and I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to capture the happiest moments of their lives in a photograph.

Hoffmann's work is phenomenal! We hired him to do both our engagement and wedding shots, and he went above and beyond anything we’d expected!!! We loved his wonderful suggestions and unobtrusive work style. The day of the wedding, Hoffmann and his assistant showed up early with mentionable patience. With a wedding party of 20 people and over 180 family and friends to work around, he was able to capture the most important memories of the night. He has an incredible way with people and somehow managed to get everyone to cooperate throughout the day (and well into the night).

After the wedding,I expected to wait weeks for the final discs to be delivered. As a new bride you can only imagine my excitement to have them within a few days! The only problem was going through quite literally thousands of pictures! They were all so wonderful it was nearly impossible to choose which ones to have printed for us and family.

If you’re looking for a photographer who understands just how important your “Special Day” truly is, and someone who’s work will speak for itself, I highly recommend Hoffmann Photography!!!!

Steve Hoffmann did an outstanding job at my wedding. He was very professional and knew what shots to take. I loved how flexible he was having no time restraints and how beautiful my wedding album turned out. He did such an amazing job and I would 100% recommend him to anyone. Thanks Hoff for playing a huge part in making my wedding day one I will never forget.

Hoffmann took absolutely beautiful pictures of our wedding!!! And we love our album that we will have to look at forever. He is easy to work with and our friends have also chosen to use him after seeing our pictures. We felt comfortable around him and that is very important on your wedding day.

We are so happy with our wedding pictures from Hoffmann. He has a wonderful eye for capturing special moments in a very unique way… there were so many great pictures it was hard to choose which pictures to use in our album. He truly captured the emotion and beauty of our wedding day. We also loved his idea for the photo guest book – we are so happy we did that! We even used him after our wedding for a family portrait – again, no surprise, the pictures were great and we had a fun time taking them!

All the great things everyone said about Hoffman are true. But in addition to taking spectacular pictures (which, he does), he is also timely about getting back to clients, setting appointments and keeping them, being accurate and consistent with our contracts and paperwork, getting proofs back quickly, and getting our album to us (better than we anticipated - we joke that it's our modeling portfolio - HA!) shortly after our wedding. I can't tell you how many friends I have that had beautiful pictures, but whose wedding photographers had no follow through. I also think it's important to add that when you're talking about someone who is interacting with your family, friends, coworkers, etc., on your very important day, you want someone who will dress and act appropriately. At a friend's wedding, the photographer showed up in a tank top and cussed loudly in front of elderly guests. Hoffman BLENDS. He was fantastic in every way - we have in the past, and continue to recommend him.

If you are deciding between photographers, GO WITH HOFFMANN! There really is no question in my mind that he does excellent work. Also, if you are from an Asian family like me, Hoffmann works plenty with our peeps so he is very culturally aware. =)

I have used his services twice now. The first time was for our family reunion, and everybody was so so soooo happy with his photos. He doesn't just show up on time, he shows up way earlier to scope out the location and to make sure he knows where to get the best shots. When my family of 35 members arrived, he was able to organize and direct us. He also gave us a lot of flexibility to come up with our own poses and let us have fun with the pictures! My family isn't the easiest to work with, either. haha

I also used Hoffmann for my wedding on June 4th, 2011, and he and his crew did an unbelievable job. His pictures turned out AMAZING!!! He will ask you exactly what you want and then get a detailed time line of your wedding day (which the crew followed to a T!!!) I recommend that you introduce your family members and close friends (or whoever is important to you) to Hoffmann before the event and that way he knows which people to capture in his photos. What's great about his crew is that they divide and conquer, so you can have several things going on at the same time and they won't miss a shot. For example, they got pictures of me getting ready the same time that my husband was getting ready, and we were at completely different locations. It really saved us time and made things so much easier to organize because we could overlap. We had a pretty big wedding party (24 people) so you can imagine how many pictures were taken for the group and individual shots between the ceremony and reception. In fact, the crew pretty much skipped their lunch in order to get all the pictures in, and didn't even complain once. We didn't even notice they hadn't eaten until way after we had finished eating. It was obvious that they had made our wedding their #1 priority.

Oh, and for Asian weddings, it's very common to have pictures with each guest taken at the beginning of the reception, which he did an awesome job with! All of these pictures were developed and in photo frames by the time the guests left at the end of the night for them to take home. This makes a great thank you card, too!

Overall, we were very happy with Hoffmann and would definitely recommend his services. I still get very emotional looking at my wedding pictures because each moment was captured so nicely. Cheers!

Hoffmann did such an amazing job photographing our wedding! He worked non-stop to make sure every moment of our wedding day was captured, without causing the slightest interference to the day. Hoffmann captured us and our background setting in a way that was truly breathtaking. He is extremely creative and artistic so every picture makes you say, "Wow!" I got tons of compliments on our pictures, and there are so many that I love that I can barely narrow it down to 90 favorites for our album. You will not be disappointed with Hoffmann and his quality of work - he is awesome!

We met Hoffmann Photographer when I was a bridesmaid in a wedding, and after we saw the results, we asked him to do our family portraits (birth of 2 girls and family pics). Weddings and families alike, Hoffmann delivers the most gorgeous work and captures life's most precious moments. He is super laid back, has a quirky sense of humor, and allows you to be who you are while he shoots you in a non-intrusive manner. He is a professional and a complete pleasure to work with. We highly, highly, recommend him!!!!
