Samantha and Pete were the photographers for our wedding this past weekend. They were both so easy to work with and both the groom and I clicked with each of them immediately. Samantha was so professional but also made everything a lot of fun. She worked with our special requests and made sure we were able to get all the shots we wanted, while also suggesting others that we may also like. Pete was our second shooter, and was so helpful with getting shots of the groomsmen getting ready, and then with helping Samantha for the remainder of the day. During the ceremony and reception, I didn't notice the photographers or videographer anywhere, yet I know they were right in the heart of the action getting so many great shots! I would definitely recommend Samantha for a wedding day- she was fun, easy to work with, professional and so talented!

I haven't gotten our pictures yet, but of those she showed us that day we are impressed. Obviously, if anything changes this review will be updated further.

I waited to submit to view the pictures again and to distance myself from the event to allow for more objectivity to our experience. The anger has subsided but the disappointment is as strong. After looking at Stephen’s portfolio of work we decided to contract with him. The video is wonderful and the videographer did a great job.
The quality of the pictures is excellent however the majority of the pictures are the traditional routine posed weddings pics, nothing that shows any unique style. Samantha was assigned to the event and she contacted my daughter via email introducing herself. She asked my daughter to complete a questionnaire about the wedding and to identify any pictures/poses that were important to be taken. None of the 5 pics my daughter listed were taken. When posing the bride Samantha never fixed the dress, the train is bunched up - the photographer provided no attention to the details. The second photographer was a waste of money and when my daughter asked him to take some pics he told her he needed to get permission from “her.” Essentially we paid for him to carry a camera bag.
We received the digital proofs within 2 weeks after the wedding and although the contract has a strict timeline for selection of pics for the album he offers no timeline for his deliverables. It took several phone calls and emails, to repeatedly answer the same questions he had and it was necessary to make the same request for edits to the selected pics – my daughter felt he wasn’t listening to her. Finally, nearly 3 months after the wedding and after multiple requests for him to please complete the album she received the album.
The photographic style we received from this studio didn’t come close to what we had expected or what Stephen sold us. We contacted Stephen to express our disappointment and concern with the pictures however he defends his work. Since all is paid and you cannot redo the event there is nothing that can be done other then pass on our experience.

Stephen Taylor Photography, Inc responded with the following comments:

Thank you for the review. I appreciate your honesty and as much as nobody loves to hear criticism I respect it and use to grow and improve. I am sorry if I did not come across that way, I enjoyed meeting you both and the last thing I ever wanted was to not meet your exceptions. Your Daughter and I got to know each other though numerous emails. It was a pleasure working with her. After 30 years in business and over 5000 events covered I still find there is so much room to grow. Our team is deeply saddened that we did not meet your exceptions and will use your advice to improve.

We had Dave M. from Stephen Taylor as our wedding photographer and had a photo booth through them. They were a fantastic company to work with and Dave is hilarious. We already got our sample images and they all look beautiful and Dave did a great job taking photographs of everything - he even captured small details from decorations that we did not notice at the time of our wedding. We would highly recommend them to everyone!

Dave Morehouse of Stephen Taylor Photography was a pleasure to deal with, and we were very happy with the photos. The only comment I would make is that it would have been helpful to be able to communicate with him via e-mail.

Stephen Taylor Photography is incredible! Their consultation is quick, efficient and they understood my vision for pictures. The week before the wedding, when I had lots of questions and wanted to double check everything, they put my mind at ease. On the day of the wedding, the photographers (we had two) took GORGEOUS pictures and asked about my preferences (which portrait shots we wanted, anything special- which I showed pictures from Pinterest that he used ideas from-, added my own ideas in, whether I liked black and white pictures, etc.). Even when things got a little stressful with other vendors and attendants, the photographers were professional and calming. They were the people who put me at ease (besides my husband, of course). When we received the pictures, we truly loved every one. We have not received our albums or video yet but know that they will look perfect. Stephen Taylor Photograhy, you turned the best day of my life into BEAUTIFUL memories that I will cherish forever. Two of my friends are also using them for their upcoming weddings. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

We specifically sought out Stephen Taylor Photography since they did my brother's wedding several years ago. We were delighted when they were one of the recommended photographers for our venue as well.

Stephen did everything he could to accommodate our schedule from meetings, listening to our desires, working with us on what we wanted, to even conducting our engagement photo shoot himself. Having just picked up our wedding album we are overjoyed with the final product.

Our photos are exactly what we wanted. They fit our style and encompassed everything we wanted for our special day.

We found it hard to agree on a wedding photographer and videographer, but we're both very pleased that we went with Stephen Taylor's studio for our Sept 2014 wedding. Scott Argenziano was our photographer; he has the kind of calm, easygoing personality that we were both very comfortable with. He did an excellent job of capturing all the pictures on our shot list as well as lots of great candids and artistic shots. We were able to view the digital images within a week and were thrilled with the pictures. There were literally hundreds of terrific shots! Tony Kennette was our videographer. He brings a fun, playful yet totally professional style to his work that helped us both feel at ease. He was very unobtrusive yet seemed to have been everywhere, judging from the video he captured. Highly recommend this team.
