Steve is absolutely PHENOMENAL! We hired Steve to photograph our wedding in Vail, CO and engagement pictures in Boulder, CO and both events were INCREDIBLE. In both events we had our dog join for a few minutes of pictures and Steve was patien...
t while our dog got adjusted and calmed down to ensure everything was very natural looking. Steve is so attentive and listens to your needs to ensure that all pictures that you want are taken and then he incorporates his own creativity to better the shot or to take additional shots. On our wedding day, he made everyone feel comfortable with being themselves and you can really see that in everyone's faces. Several of my bridesmaids, before we even got our pictures back said, "wow! Steve was so awesome! If I ever get married I might have to get his contact information". Now that we have received our pictures back, and my bridesmaids have seen the pictures, they have said "I am DEFINITELY going to have Steve photograph my wedding!" His work is incredible and his personality is infectious. 10/10 and beyond!

the camera, as we have never had professional pictures done together as a couple and it can be a bit intimidating. Steve coaches you along the way and is your hype man! We worked around some crazy weather, but regardless he captured some beautiful shots. Steve brings a laid back, attentive, fun and creative energy to each session leaving you on the edge of your seat to see the end results. And they are absolutely unbelievable. His turnaround time is remarkable with how many photos he takes after editing and delivery. And he sends you a sneak peek the following day, which really builds the excitement! Leading up to the wedding we had a phone call before to go over moments we really wanted him to capture so he understood our vision; planning is key and Steve makes you feel like a priority while encouraging, support and cheering you on in your new marriage. On the wedding day Steve brought a fresh and chill vibe and provided a hands-on experience unlike any other. We are incredibly happy we found Steve and we couldn’t be happier with the end result and a new friend. Thank you again Steve!

We hired Steve for my daughter's winter wedding in Vail. The wedding was beautiful, his images couldn't have been more disappointing. I don't think he has any idea how to compose or focus. Many photos looked like snapshots at best. A lot of the...
action photos are out of focus. He pays no attention to what is in the foreground or background in many of his posed photos. We asked him to get 4-5 specific photos that meant a lot to us, and he did one of them and none of the others. He didn't do any of our family photos during the time we had to get photos done, and after the ceremony we had to rush to do them and he didn't get all of them. I don't think he understands depth of field, how to focus when it's not a posed shot, details of the composition, lighting, or how to get thru a basic photo list.

My husband and I wish that we could give Steve more than 5 stars! He was truly the absolute best photographer and we highly highly recommend him!!! We worked with Steve on both our engagement shoot and for our wedding and it was the best choice...
we made, hands down. As the bride I wanted to make sure that the photographer we chose wasn't someone who would be in my face and making me feel crowded. Steve was fantastic! He never made me or my friends feel crowded or uncomfortable. In fact, he added a very calming and fun vibe to every room he was in. Every single person in our wedding party and friends/ family outside of our wedding party complimented us on how great Steve was. Not only is Steve's personality great to work with, but his photos are incredible. He truly makes the bride and groom the center of his art. We recently received our photographs from our wedding and we cannot stop looking at them. We love them! Steve was very good to work with, he was always responsive, and followed up with us in a timely manner. He made sure that we were happy and was great to our parents as well. I could write all day about how awesome Steve is. If I were to give any brides/ grooms one piece of advice it is to hire Steve!

All the laughs and smiles and tears that show up in his photos are 100% genuine. He has this ability to let you be yourself, which as you will learn when getting married, that is very hard to do in front of a camera!
When he found out my (now) husband was into motorcycles, he offered to take a separate photoshoot with us on his very own vintage Ural sidecar moto! It was incredible. We even got to bring our dog and let him ride in the sidecar!
Basically, I want Steve to follow us around for the rest of our lives because the moments he (and his amazing wife!) capture are magical.
Steve is extremely professional but also extremely friendly, he was prompt and spent more time than we had paid for with us, and his costs are very reasonable (including travel costs!).
When you hire him, tell him Mackenzie and Dalton say hi :) Love that guy.

Steve was very accommodating for both our engagement session and wedding. We were from Califirnia so he worked hard to find the best photo spot that showed Colorado’s true beauty for our engagements. He even faced some rainy weather since we were unable to reschedule! Steve is also so personable. He makes it easy to be yourself and have a good time while taking pictures. We really enjoyed his calming and humorous company for the engagement shoot and the day of our wedding! Steve ensures all photos that are important to you are captured! I really appreciated this as I had several key photos I wanted the day of! Steve is also great at managing chaos with large wedding parties! We had 17 people total!

The moment we saw Steve’s work on his website and Instagram, we were blown away. It wasn’t just the stunning beauty of his photographs, but his unique yet-still-classic style – more photojournalism than conventional wedding photography – which ...
was exactly what we had always wanted but assumed didn’t exist in today’s wedding industry. Until we discovered Steve.
We couldn’t be happier with the photographs he produced for our wedding. It’s been about a month since he finished putting together our online albums, and like most newlyweds, we have looked through all the photos countless times. Yet every time we find something new to admire. Steve didn’t just produce gorgeous photographs – he brought to life the story of our wedding weekend, chronicling the most meaningful moments, large and small, and capturing all of the love and emotion of everyone involved.
But here’s what’s so special about Steve: he’s more than just a brilliant photographer – he’s an exceptional human being. He is kind and genuine, charming and witty, joyful and full of life. For him, photography isn’t a job, it’s a passion. He loves it because he loves people. And you learn all of this pretty much the moment you meet him.
For us, that moment came during a phone call before we had even asked him to photograph our wedding. We figured that we would ask the questions and he would provide the answers (about his pricing, availability, style, etc.), but we were surprised and impressed when he started asking questions of us – about our relationship history and families, our jobs and interests. It was clear that he didn’t think of us as just potential clients, but as two human beings who he wanted to get to know on a personal level.
The human connection that Steve forms with the people he photographs is what makes him so good at his job. Marta and I usually don’t like posing for photographs, but with Steve behind the camera, we always felt comfortable and relaxed, even from the beginning of our engagement photo session. All of our friends and family members at the wedding said the exact same thing. Even before they had seen the photographs, everyone was raving about what a pleasure it was to be around – and to be photographed – by Steve.
Whenever we think about our wedding weekend, we think of Steve – his calming presence that put everyone at ease and his exuberant personality that put a smile on everyone’s face, his uncanny ability to seemingly be everywhere and nowhere all at once, and the ease with which he adapted to the sometimes unpredictable flow of the ceremony and reception, always managing to be at the right place at the right time.
Steve Stanton is a rare talent – a true master of his craft. And we feel incredibly blessed that he chose to share his prodigious gifts with us and our family.
