"Powerful, Unique, Creative, Beautiful, Emotional," Just a few of words used by our brides to describe our photographs. My wife Heather and I LOVE to photograph weddings, and since seeing is believing, just check out a few of our images and we think you'll see what our brides are talking about.

We've been photographing weddings in Upstate NY and now also VA (Fredericksburg and DC) and beyond for over 20 years and have developed a style of photography all our own. If you are looking for something unique, vibrant, creative, romantic, and elegant, you've found it. We photograph your day from start to finish, full wedding day coverage, capturing the details, the moments, the amazing scenery, and the romance of it all. Although the bride and groom have the spotlight for the day, as it should be, we want your family and friends to have one of the most enjoyable experiences as well, we know these are the most important people in your life and we let them know they are apart of the experience and are appreciated! We look forward to meeting you and being apart of the most memorable day of your life.

Thanks for taking the time to view our portfolio! Please contact us with any questions you may have.

Absolutely amazing! We chose Steve and Heather to do our Engagement pictures in Lake George and Wedding photos in Saratoga and could not be happier! From our first conversation on the phone, Steve was excited and super supportive of our ideas. They made those awkward kissing photographs fun and we had such a blast shooting with them. They had awesome jokes and kept our wild wedding party entertained all day and we ended up with the most beautiful photos. It was also a great surprise that the photos were loaded to the website a month and a half after our wedding, which we thought was pretty quick considering there are about 1200! Thank you so much, Steve and Heather, for all of your hard work and spending so much time getting to know us, our family and friends and pulling everyone's personalities into our photos!

Steve and Heather were amazing to work with! Very friendly, funny, and efficient - they got all the shots we wanted without taking hours. They got everyone smiling and relaxed and did very well despite the terrible heat and the rain. I am so glad I hired them!

ABSOLUTELY amazing. Stephen and his wife, Heather, are pure professionals who keep it fun and exciting, who know what they're doing, and who have plenty of experience in this field. It more than shows. I still cry every time I look at our pictures - they're nothing short of perfect. We had Heather with me and the girls while we were getting ready. Stephen hung out with the guys and took their pictures. Then we did individual shoots alone (my husband and me). Everything came out the way I imagined it. It truly made our wedding seem like the fairy tale wedding we wanted. Words can't express how thankful we are for their service, and we cannot recommend them enough!! The price for the package we got was an amazing deal as well. Hard to find a better deal - excellent professional photographers for the outstanding price. Love them!

Steve and Heather were so much fun to work with both in the days leading up to our wedding and on the wedding day itself. We had such a magical and beautiful day and couldn't be happier that Steve and Heather were there to join us. Throughout our wedding day, Steve and Heather had the rare ability to be everywhere, but nowhere at the same time. By that I mean, they got so many beautiful shots, but they never took any moments away from the bride/groom/families to get the shots. This was something that was very important to me. While doing our family pictures and bridal party pictures, Steve had a fun way of reminding us all to smile (and not fake smile!) so that we could get the best pictures possible. It was so fun watching him creatively choose picture locations and set up the scene. He was able to get all the shots in, and have fun at the same time, laughing and joking around with us all while he was taking pictures. This contributed greatly to our overall wedding feel, just having someone there with us that truly loves their job and has fun doing it. After the wedding, we had all our edits (800+!) within a month. We live out of state, so Steve even shipped our 4x6 prints to us to look through before ordering our enlargements. Steve was very quick to respond to any questions we had about prints and enlargements, and was able to quickly make any changes we asked for. Our wedding was in April 2016, and we have guests STILL commenting on how much fun they had with our photographers and how they love all our pictures. Overall, we were blown away by how easy Steve and Heather made our wedding-day photography and how perfectly their personalities meshed with our bridal party, friends, and family. You can't beat having someone there with you all day that feels like a friend, AND gets beautiful pictures along the way. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for all your help making our day so special <3

I LOVED working with Steve. I found him to be really easy to work with and I could not say anything negative even if I tried. I found him on Wedding Wire and I liked his photography and fair pricing. He works with his wife and they make a great pair. He takes the lead while his wife is a second photographer who assists him and takes candid shots as well. Our pictures were stunning. He was very timely the day of the wedding and very professional to work with. Him and his wife were great at getting great shots without interfering with the ceremony or private moments with the family. We went to the Empire State Plaza for pictures after the ceremony and Steve got very excited about this. He made it so fun because you could tell he was enjoying being our photographer. He got gorgeous romantic shots while still getting some more silly shots as my husband and I are a little goofy. It was a great balance of what I wanted and our personalities. Him and his wife were flexible with getting shots that we requested and they stayed until about the last hour of our wedding which was even longer than I had expected. I HIGHLY recommend him as a vendor.

Stephen Marsh photography was best experience a bride could ask for!! From start to finish he made the experience simple and 100% stress free! When I began researching photographers I knew there were four features I wanted. (1) Two photographers so that different angles and candid moments could be captured, (2) full day coverage so that my special day had pictures from start to finish (3) the agreement to use the photos after words to get duplicates or make photo projects and (4) high quality photos at a fair price. I know that was a lot to ask for, but Stephen Marsh was it!!! He exceeded all expectations, and even went above and beyond by going to two photo locations, checking with us before he left at the end of the night to make sure we didn't want more photos, and made faces to get our ring bearer to smile in photos (no simple task when the ring bearer is 21 months old) It was the little details he cared about which made me feel comfortable we were in good hands with one of the most important vendors of our wedding day. Lastly and perhaps most importantly, his professionalism, creativity and talent for his profession truly amazes me. He thought of ideas, angles, lighting etc. that made for some amazing pictures in which an average photographer would have bypassed. I have been in 4 weddings and Stephen Marsh is the best photographer I have had the pleasure of working with.
