We have yet to receive our photos as the wedding was only a few weeks ago but we are so pleased that we went with Stephen! He was extremely friendly, helpful and attentive during the planning process with his prompt responses and kind suggestions on how to proceed when we came up with questions or inquiries. He was also incredibly professional when shooting for us and we could really see that he has a passion for what he does which is great because it made everything seem so fun and enjoyable. We really liked how Stephen would think on the fly and incorporate various things that he would notice on-site. For example, he noticed that we had little plush pigs that we had our guests sign for us and so he suggested we take several pictures with the pigs. Stephen also picked up on some of the more interesting cultural decor / permanent fixtures there were at the venue and had us strike a pose or two nearby to make for interesting and candid shots. All of our guests praised Stephen for how great he was and we even noticed that he stayed beyond the four hours that we had contracted him for so that was really nice of him! In addition, he kindly offered to expedite the setting up of a mini gallery for us so that we could print out a few shots for inclusion in our thank yous which was a very nice touch. We are so glad we went Stephen and are confident that he successfully and beautifully captured our special day. We would 100% recommend Stephen.

Stephen and I have been working together for about 8 years.
He has always provided outstanding images and can change his style to
accommodate any request and to fit any wedding theme.
One of my client's had a vintage style wedding. Stephen used different photo shop techniques to give that vintage look to some of her photos.
The bride was very impressed as she is a photographer herself.
You have to always ask the questions. You can never see everything that
a talented photographer/artist can do on one website.
Stephen has a very calm and fun personality and can get along with anyone. There is nothing worse then attitude on a wedding day!
Consistency is very important as a professional photographer and Stephen has never dissapointed anyone, ever. I can promise all of my clients that their photos will be amazing and Stephen will go above and beyond to get everything he sees that needs to be photographed.
I am proud to be able to write this review because the success of the vendors I use as a wedding coordinator makes my own business successful.
See you on the next one Stephen!

Three things to describe Stephen Ludwig Photography: EXCELLENT SERVICE, REASONABLE PRICES,OUTSTANDING PHOTOS.
I heard about Stephen Ludwig photography from a friend who lives here on Oahu. After browsing through his website I was quite impressed. My sister (who lives on Maui) was tired of having the same vendors on Maui to choose from and when she asked me if I knew of any wedding photographers on Oahu that were good, Stephen quickly came to mind.
My sister flew over a few times to get wedding stuff done and we were able to sit down with Stephen and talk about the kind of photos she wanted. He brought with him photo books and everything was so unique looking and the shots were nothing like I had ever seen! My sister was so grateful I came across his site.
He showed up at the hotel where we were getting ready and got right to work. We all know getting ready on your wedding day is half the wedding in itself! He wasn't one of those "you're getting in my way" photographers. He let us do what we needed and worked around us not us around him. He went back and forth from our room to the guys room (which I might add was on the other side of the hotel) and was able to catch such intimate moments.
During the cocktail hour, Stephen went around taking candid photos of our friends and family and he even sneaked in a few professional photos of me and my boyfriend and great family pics. The reception itself was huge!We have a pretty big family and there were about 500+ guests in attendance. Stephen was booked for 6 hours but to our surprise he stayed longer without charging us. My sister was worried that he was going to miss his flight back to Oahu and that he would charge us more but he said "I stayed because there was still so much more things I wanted to capture for you".
You will not find ANYONE else as easy to work with and good as Stephen. I am really impressed with the quality of work he produced and will definitely be booking him when it's my turn to walk down the aisle!
