Definitely book these guys to photograph your wedding! They were so great to work with, they were fun, easy going and very accommodating! At our original engagement session location the weather looked pretty gloomy so they called us a couple hours before hand and suggested a new spot for better pictures. They take AMAZING photos! They are so creative and have just great ideas but also listen to you if there are specific poses or photos you want included. Plus they are a husband and wife couple so were able to take different angled photos at the same time of the same moment which was SO cool to have!

After saying yes to the groom, choosing Steele Photography was probably the next best decision for our big day! From the first initial e-mail inquiries, meeting them for the first time, to the engagement shoot, weeks/days leading up to our date, and our big day, I admired how professional, comforting, and down-to-Earth Chris and Jd are. They're extremely skilled at their job and do it with incredible finesse that you're having so much fun in the process!!! As I scroll through wedding pictures, I relive those little moments, feelings, and memories all over again. It is more than I could have ever asked for. I even have numerous family members jealous of the quality of our photos compared to their own wedding ;)

To highlight the work of Chris & Jd is easy, but there are so many behind the camera tasks they excelled at that blew me away. I felt like a valued customer when they asked for our expectations of wedding photographers, incredibly special when receiving hand written notes from them, relieved when they called more than a week before the wedding to finalize little details, and I felt in great hands the day of the wedding in every single aspect.

To those seeking out wedding photographers, look no further... Steele Photography is an amazing duo that will make this experience unforgettable and exciting!

Like many other clients of Steele Photography, we cannot tell you how great Chris and jD were to work with leading up to and during our big day. Here are a few specific examples of how Steele Photography made our wedding unforgettable.
1. Organization – you cannot ask for a more dedicated and organized (married!) team to help keep everything straight leading up to your wedding. They helped keep us & our families on track during the day and even called ahead to our reception venue before leaving the church to let them know we were running a little behind schedule!
2. Technology – Steele’s freedom gallery made receiving, viewing, and sharing our photos with friends and family incredibly easy. The online gallery allowed us to favorite photos & order high quality online prints, while also being able to share links with friends to download any of our images.
3. Pricing Structure – you get rights to ALL of your photos for one price, including a free engagement session and consultations regarding your wedding timeline (this was very helpful).
4. Personality –We met Chris & jD for the first time over happy hour drinks to discuss our style, venue, date, budget, etc. and left knowing they were the right photographers for us. They instantly felt like friends, rather than just vendors and their passion for their job truly shines through! On our wedding day they helped us & our guests have fun &feel comfortable in front of the camera – resulting in some amazing photos.
Though we could go on and on about Chris and jD, the main reason you should book Steele Photography as your wedding photographers is their high quality photos. Their work is truly second to none. When we view our wedding photos for the first time, I found myself sitting in front of my computer with tears in my eyes – their photos transported us back to our wedding day and we felt like we were re-living that magical day. We can’t thank Steele Photography enough for all they did to make our wedding day so

JD and Chris are simply the BEST! We met with 4-5 photographers before meeting with Steele and we saved the best for last. It was really important to not just be a number with our photographers. We were going to spend a lot of time with them so it was important for us to mesh well with whoever we chose. From the moment we met at Starbucks we knew we didn't need to meet anyone else. Not only does their work speak for itself but they are the most kind and sincere vendor we had. It was like we had known them our whole lives. We met for our engagement session on a gorgeous day in the Pearl and they warmed us up to the lens and made us feel so comfortable. It was a great chance to get to know how they work and a little prep for the BIG DAY. Our photos of course turned out perfect. On our wedding day JD and Chris were silently there in the background with a smile on their face. They made sure we were running on schedule and captured everything we wanted them to and more. If you're looking for a wedding photographer don't look ANY further! Meet with JD and Chris and fall in love with them and their work just like we did! ~S&D

I honestly cannot say enough wonderful things about these two! They were responsive throughtout everything from the first meeting through to the wedding... jD basically helped me plan the wedding with her wealth of vendor knowledge. They were super friendly and just really FUN to be around. And the pictures... OMG... everyone looks so pretty, the scenery looks lovely, every detail is captured, and with their gallery it is so easy to share the photos, which for me is great since most of my friends and family live far away. They are spectacular photogs and once you meet them- you will want to hire them... and I promise you will not regret that decision!!

Chris and JD are the best photographers, EVER! I didn't waste my time meeting with other photographers because I knew instantly when I saw them at a bridal convention, that they were the ones for us. They have been doing this for a while, especially Chris, so I was comfortable enough to put complete trust in them. Chris kept us on time throughout the day and I loved how JD focused on the tiny details. They are both very professional and serious about their job but they know how to have fun as well. We currently have our engagement album and are extremely happy with how beautiful it turned out. Our wedding pictures are to die for and I cannot stop looking at them! We are anxious as we wait for our wedding album but I'm sure it will turn out just as beautiful and worth the wait! Their work is beyond amazing! You will not regret hiring them!

Chris and JD did an amazing job taking our wedding and engagement photos! The photos from our wedding perfectly captured every detail of our day. They instantly make you feel comfortable with them and in front of the camera, and that really shows in all the pictures. I highly recommend these two because their photos are top of the line, you get two photographers for the price of one (essential for getting all the best wedding photos), and they are just really nice and fun people.

Steele Photography was the perfect match for our wedding! My husband and I both hate to be photographed, they helped us to be ourselves and capture who we really are; they caught the candid moments perfectly.

Chris and jD were easy to work with and did everything we could have asked for, and more. We appreciate their ability to add a personal touch and make our day special. They made sure to capture every special moment, and were looking out for us. One of my favorite things was jD kicked every out of the room so my mom and I could have a moment together before all the festivities began - it was a moment I will forever remember. They did a wonderful job working with a HUGE family to get some great group shots - they even got one with all 50+ people smiling at once!

I strongly suggest going with Steele Photography for your wedding photos - everything from your first meeting to the final photo will be memorable! Thanks, Steele!

Chris and JD photographed our wedding on July 26th 2015 and all I can say is that they are AMAZING!!! They are so easy to work with and so chill and relaxed. I even gave Chris the wrong time for the ceremony and he just rolled with it and made it work. Our photos are beautiful and I wouldn't have used anybody else<3

Steele Photography is phenomenal! We live in Utah and were getting married in Gleneden, OR. We stumbled upon jD and Chris on The Knot. I sent an email to make sure they didn't have any qualms about shooting a Love is Love wedding. They responded and scheduled a online meeting so they could explain the different packages and actually "meet" us. We ended up getting the package that included the engagement session and they worked us in when we went out to Oregon to see our venue. It has been an absolute pleasure working with these two! They are professional, fun, and capture every detail. The attention to detail with clothing, hair, and nose squishing was on point and enhanced our photos beyond our expectations! Any bride or groom would be silly not to hire these two...we are even talking about having them do a maternity shoot for us, when the time comes! (Don't forget we live in Utah!) We just received our wedding photos and it brought us back to the wedding day. We can't say enough good things about these two!
