This is our second event with Stephen Martin and as long as we keep having weddings between family and friends he will always get our business. He goes above and beyond and takes away a lot of the anxiety leading up to the event. This happened to be my sister's wedding and it was great to see her so relaxed and comforted that her rehearsal dinner and wedding were in great hands. Always a pleasure to deal with Stephen and wish him the best in his future endeavors. He will always have us a glowing referral.

Our family had 3 weddings recently and this photographer was hired for 2 of them. The third now wishes she would have hired him also. He works quietly, efficiently, and is very personable and patient with guests and wedding party. We won't hire anyone else for future family events.

He also photographed school choir students. He was positive, patient, and produced quick affordable professional photos. All were pleased!

Stephen provided so much for us beyond his great photography service! His calm and professional demeanor provided me confidence that nothing could go wrong on my wedding day, and for a bride, that confidence is priceless. He kept the wedding events that day in order and running on time and he was willing to do whatever it took to "get the shot"! He was awesome! I would recommend Stephen, hands down, any day of the week. The products (photo-book, and wedding album) we purchased after the wedding were beautiful as well. Stephen, as your photographer, will be the best investment you can make for your wedding. Pictures last a lifetime!

Stephen went above and beyond our expectations. He was absolutely fabulous and took a ton of stress off my wife and I. He literally walked us through so many parts of the wedding that I would've otherwise been lost in. I cannot say enough about his services and feel truly blessed to have made a friend through the process. Thank You Stephen.

Steve knows what looks good. Great ideas for shots hit him immediately upon arrival at our location. He knows what tender moments shots you might want and offers excellent suggestions. I have so many proof pictures marked with a post it note I'll need help deciding which ones I want larger prints of. He set up shots quickly and noticed every detail. Minutes before the ceremony he even spotted the fact no one set up our unity candles! Oh yes, he is also a great dress/train fluffer!

Thanks to Stephen Martin Photography, photos and capturing the moment for my husband and I was definately the LEAST of my stress and worries for our big day! Stephen had a wonderful rapport with not just myself, but also my family as a whole as well. He took suggestions and cues from them, and it was wonderful to have a professional "gel" with the family as well! His prices and website were easy to navigate for all to order photos from, and his prices were very competative! We were so happy with our experience that we have used him numerous times AFTER our wedding for family portraits, reunions, and large gatherings!
