I HIGHLY recommend Steve Kaufman for both videography and photography for your wedding. Steve was a truly a joy to work with and happily accommodated all of my specific requests. He also took our engagement photos (which included my rambunctious dog) and they turned out beautifully. The day of my wedding he and his team were so easy going and helpful and it made the hectic picture taking calm and easy! We had our pictures back from our wedding in 2 weeks and they turned out perfect! We can't wait to see the video and I'm sure it will be just as fantastic as the pictures! Steve is a pleasure to work with and I definitely recommend him for your photos and videos!

We were so lucky to find Steve to do the photography for our wedding. We started out sitting down with him at his office and he showed us many examples of his awesome work. The minute we sat down with him, we knew we had found our photographer. We did the engagement photos in the fall which turned out exactly the way we wanted. Steve is very flexible and was always able to work us into his schedule. During the week of the wedding, Steve met us at our venue to look for places to shoot so we did not waste any time on the wedding day looking for locations. Steve showed up early on the wedding day and fit perfectly into the crowd. During the day, he is not at all intrusive and there were so many pictures that I did not even know he took. He made sure he got the right shot each and every time and we now have hundreds of wedding pictures that turned out perfect.

We also had Steve do the Photo Giveaway at our wedding as well. It was a huge success. Our guests loved getting to take pictures with family and friends and then get to take those same pictures home with them. It was so much better than rolling a photo booth into our venue. You could tell the pictures were professionally done and I know some of our guests now have them framed.

In all, if you can book Steve Kaufman for your wedding, I would not waste any time. We could not have found a better photographer in the area and I had no doubt that Steve would get the perfect shots for our special day.

Thanks Steve!!

Steve and his assistant were very kind. They showed up early to get shots of me getting ready before the wedding. He did the bridal party shots before the wedding so that wouldn't cut into the reception. They were very enjoyable to work with and extremely helpful. He gave me suggestions for poses and was also open to trying my ideas too. He went to multiple locations for me. He was very kind to my guests. He graciously allowed guests to use flash photography while he was taking pictures. One of my guests told me that when she was standing next to him taking pictures of me he asked her in a sincere and genuine manner if he was in her way. She thought that was really nice of him. At the end of the night, Steve stayed late and made sure I got all of the important shots (cake cutting, first dance, etc). The pictures are amazing. Many of my friends have told me that he was definitely worth the money. I'm really glad that I went with him as my photographer. Not only will I have these breathtaking photos for the rest of my life, but I will also have great memories of taking the pictures. You spend a lot of time with your photographer on your wedding day. And I was so overwhelmed by Steve's kindness and how much he had done for me that day. It really made it an enjoyable experience.

Having Steve do our pictures was the best thing I ever did. He did such a great job. We actually hired him to do our wedding photos, we then had a different day for our Celebration & he did an awesome job for us there. He was so professional & fun to have as a photographer. Steve works right along with you and makes sure that he gets all the important pics taken without you even knowing that he took them. I can't say enough about everything that he did for us!!! So glad that we picked Steve to do our pictures, he was amazing :)

Steve and his staff are AMAZING!!!! They were there for every aspect of our wedding and took some of the most amazing pictures. We were thrilled with all of the beautiful pictures we got and them memories that were captured for all to see. Steve worked with us personally to combine the vision we had and the area we were working with to inspire his creativity. He had a keen eye for beautiful shots and artistic photos we will treasure forever! His lighthearted personality makes him easy to get along with and very comfortable, he made everything seem so natural! We are so happy we went with Steve Kaufman Photography, it was the best decision!!!!!!

STEVE SAVED OUR WEDDING DAY! Not only was he an amazing photgrapher, capturing the most candid moments, he truely wanted our day to be the best day of our lives. Steve followed our limo to the reception hall, when it broke down on the side of I-69, Steve did not let us get upset, he did not let me cry. He had us all posing for pictures in the most wonderful field and kept the mood light and happy. The pictures turned out amazing from the feild and they now accent our wall! I can honestly say that if Steve wasn't there, we would have been in much wose spirits. Steve took outstanding shots and so many people commented by saying "you are so getting your money's worth". We couldn't be happier with how he captured our memories and was the savior of our wedding.

Steve was a great photographer. He had a keen and uncanny eye for beauty and likes doing photos others may be afraid to do. Our pictures came out beautiful and were a great mixture of styles. We loved the backgrounds Steve thought of for our portraits (a lake in Michigan with water, trees and absolute beauty) and were so pleased he captured all our special moments. He had a great wedding package and we can't wait to see our photo book that we ordered. Our only regret is that we hired him for less hours than we should've. He is someone that should be at the wedding until it's over.

Steve was a great photographer. He's a little "quirky" but I believe that's a pre-req for an artist. He made us feel comfortable during the photo shoots and definitely had an eye for unique, cool settings. Overall he got some great shots of our wedding and I'm very happy with the results. His prices for the photography were very competitively set, however I found his price for wedding albums to be outrageous.

Steve was flexible in meeting with us after work and spent an afternoon with us prior to the wedding deciding on exact locations that we'd like to have photos taken, ensuring the day of our wedding went very smoothly.
