About this Vendor
Memories to go back to everyday.
We have taken stunning images and produced quality videos using top of the line digital equipment since 1995. Our portfolio speaks for itself. Based on our effective process, hard work, and unmatched customer service, we are proud to ensure absolute satisfaction to all of our clients.
Studio 41 was hands down the single best decision I made for my big day. Steve's incredible talent is undeniable. One look at his portfolio proves that he is an amazing professional whose work would be hard to match. Just look at his sample photos. What his portfolio doesn't show is his wonderful persona behind the camera. Steve directed every single detail of our entire bridal party to get perfectly posed shots without any photo series becoming tedious. We were laughing all day. My husband and I are not people who naturally pose ourselves into what would be called attractive positions, and yet every single picture of us makes us look like characters from a fairy tale. That is thanks to Steve. He can find magical shots in the most unattractive scenery. Somehow the photos we took outside of a Hampton Inn look like we're in a botanical garden. I should also mention that it is due in large to Steve that our day stayed on schedule. He took photos that I didn't even realize I wanted (until I saw them later) while I was getting ready, and then kept the entire 12 person bridal party in line all the way to the reception. He immediately figured out our group dynamic and played into our personalities to get perfect candid and posed shots of the whole group. He and his assistant, Sam, really clicked with everyone, and I think that made a world of difference. It would be impossible not to be at ease with Steve's direction, and it's this that really sets him apart from other talented photographers. Steve worked with us to create a custom package that fit within our budget, but after seeing the nearly 4,000 beautifully edited shots he created for us, I would have happily paid double my budget to work with him. I cannot recommend him highly enough to everyone. There were even guests at our wedding who have already hired Steve for their own events. He's that impressive. Again, Studio 41 is the best decision we made for our big day.
My wedding photos are a dream! Thank you Studio 41!Reviewed on 2/10/2015 Mariam F
Let me start off my saying Steve and his team at Studio 41 are by far THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS. You honestly cannot find a more dedicated, passionate, and hard working team that delivers like Studio 41. Out of all the vendors I worked with, Steve was my favorite. He is hilarious, he made the day so much fun, my family and friends all loved him, and of course, he captured every moment of the wedding in the most beautiful way. This man is a true talent and cannot go unrecognized. Photos were always my biggest worry when it came to planning my wedding, as I'm sure it is for most brides. What drew me his work was Steve's effortless talent for creating whimsical portraits. He not only caught every moment of my wedding day, but honestly kept me smiling throughout the entire night and for that I am eternally grateful. You will not regret this investment! Your photos are all you have after the wedding day is over. Make sure you chose a team that gives you what you deserve, make sure that team is Studio 41!
The Absolute BEST!!Reviewed on 4/18/2014 Krissy K
I don't think there will ever be enough kind words to describe how absolutely amazing Studio 41 Photography is. Steve and his guys are hands down, the best I have ever seen! Not only are they passionate and professional, they are amazing, caring and FUN people! From our first meeting with Steve, we knew that we were not going to look any further for a photographer, and we have NEVER regretted that decision! Our engagement pictures turned out better than we had ever imagined (and we got them SO quickly!), and it made us that much more excited for our wedding. The guys fit right in with our wedding party, family, and friends - getting everyone to have fun and getting some GREAT pictures in the process. Every.Single.Person. I talked to had amazing things to say about our photographers - and they hadn't even seen the pictures yet! That shows you what a positive impact they had on our day :) Our wedding pictures came back SO QUICKLY and I can't stop looking at them! We have received nothing but compliments on the quality of photos and the quality of the PEOPLE with Studio 41. Brides, PLEASE do yourself a favor and meet with Steve, and then HIRE HIM!! I promise you, you will not regret working with him! He is amazing to watch work - he has that "eye" and you can just see the wheels turning, figuring out how to get the best shot, EVERY TIME. He has many different packages that will absolutely fit your budget and what you are looking for. Pictures are your lasting memories of your day and with Studio 41 Photography you will have breathtaking memories to last you always!!
5 stars all the way!!!! Steve and his team are the absolute best. They make you feel so comfortable in front of the camera and capture every single moment. I received our pictures weeks early and I am reliving our special day through his work. We are truly blessed to do has Steve and his team on our special day and I can't imagine using any other photographer after having the Studio 41 experience.
Even months later, we still cannot find the words to adequately express our gratitude. Finding Steve to capture one of the most special days of our lives was the biggest blessing. His passion for photography shines through in his creative, one of a kind photos, and his love for what he does is reflected in his enthusiasm and excitement during shoots. His fun and calming demeanor had our entire wedding party comfortable and laughing the entire day!!! Not only did we enjoy our experience with Steve and his assistant Sam, but we are also obsessed with the end product!!!! We will cherish our photos for a lifetime because they truly capture our love, the beauty of Detroit, and so many happy moments with the people we treasure most. How Steve managed to give 3000 fully edited photos to us so quickly is beyond me! Steve came highly recommended from friends of ours, yet he still exceeded all of our expectations. Picking Studio 41 Photography was the single best wedding decision we made in every aspect, so we will absolutely be working with Steve again in the future! We cannot thank him enough for helping make our wedding so memorable and special and for the amazing photos we now have to relive all of our big day! - Lisa and Kevin S
If you are looking the best look no further! Studio 41 is simply the best. There are too many great things to say about Studio 41 and Steve. They are by far one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. After our engagement session with Steve we were absolutely certain we had found the best! Steve made us laugh the entire time and made sure we got every shot we wanted. Our engagement pictures were stunning and I had no worries that our wedding pictures were going to be just as amazing. Steve and his team made an entire day of taking 1000s of pictures FUN! They captured every moment of our special day and made it something we can cherish forever. I have no words to describe just how beautiful our wedding pictures are. Studio 41 has by far exceeded every expectation I had when picking a wedding photographer.
When I was planning my wedding I knew that the photography would be the most important part of my day. I don't understand how some people book their photographer last minute or try to save $ by choosing an amateur photographer...but I digress. I met with several photographers before my wedding with prices ranging from $2,000-$8,000. It was nuts. I did my research, and tried to meet with as many photographers as possible. I met with Steve first and probably should've stopped after that. It would've saved me a lot of gas, time, and headache :) Steve was the most genuine, most knowledgeable, and most talented photographer that I met with. He was very helpful and answered all my questions. He went out of his way to show me photographs that he had taken at my wedding venue. Steve also have the best packages and value for your money. So many other photographers do things a la carte which I found irritating. When I booked Steve, I felt 100% confident that he would do a great job. He is super easy to work with and is a very prompt communicator (he gets back to emails super fast). Our engagement photos & wedding photos turned out amazing. I always felt comfortable with Steve & Sam and they made me laugh and feel relaxed. I highly recommend Studio 41 photography. After all, your wedding photos are the only tangible memories you have from such a special day - you might as well go with the best :)
Steve and his assistant were wonderful to work with for my wedding. They were so down to earth and made me feel so comfortable. I would recommend them to anyone!!
Upon deciding our wedding date, my husband and I were looking for a photographer that was as excited about our wedding as we were. Upon speaking with Steve, we both found his enthusiasm beamingly contagious... We had to choose Steve and his team to capture one of the most important days of of our lives! Steve was extremely accomodating and unbelievably caring... He even called me a few days before the wedding to ask if there was anything he could do to make the wedding day as comfortable as possible. Steve's assistant, Waddie, was unbelievable and their teamwork was exceptional. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and our photos were breathtaking... I had always dreamt of a winter white wedding-- Studio 41 made that dream come to life. My husband and I cannot thank Steve and his team enough for the impressive service and accomodations. 'One million stars' to you and your team Steve- Keep up the amazing work! Hasan & Meisaa Abbas 1.10.16
They were amazing!!!Reviewed on 11/11/2015 Colleen S
We used Studio 41 as our Photographer and Videographer. Our whole experience with them was amazing!!! They made us feel extremely comfortable the whole time and had wonderful shot ideas! We are very pleased with them and I would recommend them to everyone!!!
Our wedding was on 10-17-15. I don't think there is enough room here to write everything I want to say about Steve. In short, Steve is absolutely amazingggggggggg. Seriously!!!!! We felt so comfortable with Steve, that when it was over, it was sad that we wouldn't be seeing him again. How many vendors can you say that about?? He is such a wonderful, thoughtful and caring person. It's extremely obvious he is there for you and only wants to do whatever he can to give you the best pictures. He is with you from the time you wake up, till the time you leave the hall...that is rare to find these days!! We can't say enough about Steve and his videography team. They were an extremely large party of what made our wedding even more than we could have ever imagined! If you want a personable, caring, reasonably priced photographer and videographer, there is no need to look any further. Steve is your guy!!! I wish I could give him 100 stars because he truly deserves it!! Thank you so much Steve!!! Lindsey & Andrew
Can I leave 100 stars?!?!Reviewed on 10/15/2015 Katie E
Steve, Matt and I cannot thank you and Sam enough for all your hard work and dedication to us. Our engagement photos were so wonderful we really cannot wait to see what you did with the wedding! Listen up brides-to-be, husbands-to-be or anyone looking for a photographer GO SEE STEVE. He is such a nice guy and will keep you laughing through the difficult moments. But most of all, Steve is a professional. His work is art and you will feel privileged to have been his subject. I know that sounds corny but it is the truth! Steve will NOT disappoint.
Steve and Sam were absolutely amazing. They had high energy and excitement all day long and kept the wedding party entertained. Steve is creative and creates one of a kind images. I was floored away with the results. It will be hard to pick just a few to print out. I would highly recommend Steve and Studio 41 again.
Steve and his team were amazing on our wedding day! They were fun, super creative and fit right in! It was a big Indian wedding and they just went with it, they made sure they captured all the details and made it a memorable and special time! Steve and his team exceeded our expectations, and the photos speak for themselves. The studio 41 team is exceptional and very talented! Can't thank the team enough!
I first met Steve and the Studio 41 Photography team when I was in a wedding about two years ago. After all the fun we had that day, I knew when my special day came we HAD to have Steve! Today I can say that choosing Steve, Jake and the Studio 41 Photography & Videography team was the BEST decision we could have made for our wedding experience. From our engagement photos to our big day, working with Steve was a dream!! He is incredible to work with, engaging, HILARIOUS and his work ethic makes him a perfect choice for the most important decision you’ll make for your special day – capturing memories. We’ve received so many compliments on how comfortable he made everyone feel! Our bridal party loved them, our families loved them and we love them too! We will be recommending Studio 41 for years and years to come!
Steve and his team exceeded our expectations, hands down!! The photos are beautiful! The captured spontaneous shots were amazing... Steve was very creative and so much fun to be with all day. Exceptionally talented and the best out there!!
Working with Steve was the best decision my husband and I could have possibly made. the engagement photo shoot was full of laughter and fun, and our photos well let's just say we can't pick a favorite from the 500 he took. He was totally up for any suggestion we had, as well as having an eye for the perfect shots. We would be walking around down town Birmingham and he would say stand here, hold his hand look there and bam the shot is perfect. The turn around time for the engagement photos was unbelievable-one week! That never happens. He confirmed for the wedding twice and was at every location early! Not only did he work a 14 hour day he took advantage of every photo opportunity! We had to literally force him to eat! He had everyone laughing and havin a great time! Our photo teasers belong in magazines! The talent Steve and his team has is a gift from God! Thank you Steve for everything including a great friendship and unreal photographs to remember the best day of our life!
I cannot tell you how amazing this company is... Long story short, my makeup artist bailed on me 3 hours prior to our start time and I could not stop crying. Vince was seriously a lifesaver and angel and kept me calm while he located a back-up MUA who took us in ASAP. Time was such an issue but Vince went out of his way to rush us to the venue and made jokes and conversation to divert my attention. Honest to god, one of the best people I've ever met. I recommend this company a thousand times over. Professional, detail-oriented, charismatic, passionate, you name it!! Don't look for anyone else- you've found the right one.
Studio 41 is the best!! I can honestly say Steve is one of the most talented photographer's out there! My sister booked Steve 2 years ago for her wedding and I knew right then this was who I wanted to photograph my wedding. Steve is so great to work with and we had so much fun taking our photos for our engagement session and wedding!! There was never a dull moment as Steve (and Sam) had us laughing the whole time! My husband hates taking pictures and even he had a great time taking all of our photos. We had the absolute worst weather on our wedding day, horrible high winds and constant rain that never let up. Our venue was at a golf course, so our plan was to take all our pictures outside. From the moment Steve walked in to my parent's house, he instantly eased my worries because he had a plan! I am so happy with all the pictures both him and Sam were able to capture. I absolutely LOVE the pictures we were able to take in the rain right after the sun went down and the wind/rain let up just enough to get outside. He captured every single moment of our wedding and I relive each moment when look at each picture. Thank you so much Steve for a phenomenal experience and amazing photos!! Amy and Dave
We can't say enough positive things about Steve and his team and how wonderful they were not only the day of our wedding, but throughout the whole process. He was always helpful and open to any suggestions that we had. What really impressed us was how creative his imagination was on the day of our wedding. We have had numerous comments on how beautiful the pictures are and how creative the shots were. He made each step of the way fun and always made us feel comfortable. We would highly recommend Studio 41 for wedding photos!
Where do I even start. Steve and Sam were phenomenal! The weather for my wedding wasn't the best ( 100% rain and 54 degrees) but you wouldn't even know that by looking at my wedding pictures! They made us feel like it was 80 degrees and sunny. I didn't even have to stage my laughter in my pictures. Steve and Sam had us laughing the whole time and even was there for us for some advice. My husband and I can't thank them enough. I wasn't worried about how the pictures would turn out because I choose Steve for our engagement pictures. Studio 41's quality is better than 5 stars and to be completely honest their pictures are unique which I absolutely love! Take my advice and choose them for your special occasion.. You won't regret it! You get a perfect package.. A photographer, mentor, friend and comedian all in 1. Thank you so much! -Hussein & Amber Wedding date: May 31,2015
Amazing!Reviewed on 4/14/2015 Ashley M
My husband and I could not have chosen better photographers! From the moment we met Steve, we all clicked. My mother and mother in law went to sign the contract with me and they were amazed with Steve and his pictures. When I was researching photographers I was looking for two things...unlimited hours and multiple photographers. He was the FIRST and ONLY company we actually met with. We could not be any happier with our pictures. We have had so many compliments about our pictures as if they should be in magazines! They took pictures when we weren't even realizing it and those were as amazing as the posed ones. Our families could not have been anymore impressed on the day of our wedding as to how personable Steve, Sam, and Wadi were. Steve has a great eye for taking incredible shots. We could not believe how many pictures we ended up with. I will forever refer this company as well as use them in the future. My husbands cousin is getting married in August and Steve is the photographer and cannot wait to see their pics! They are fantastic! Thank you for creating these memories that will last a lifetime from our fairytale day!
Should be shooting for Vogue!Reviewed on 4/13/2015 Amy W
Steve from Studio 41 is amazing!!! Not only as a photographer but also as a person! I am someone who hates posing for pictures but I love and appreciate the art of photography! He made pictures fun for my wedding day! ANDDDD when we got them back JUST 27 DAYS after our wedding, I was amazed!!!!! I couldn't believe how gorgeous they came out! I remember the day of he was posing my bridal party and it looked very weird so I was a little nervous but I decided to trust him because I felt the same way for our engagement pictures and they turned out gorgeous! Our pictures were not just memories captured. They were a true work of art (this coming from someone who loves photography art). He should seriously be shooting for Vogue or Travel Magazines! Our wedding was in the winter but we really wanted our pictures in Downtown Utica which is right next to a highway! He got all the best shots in that area! Seriously worth every penny! You only have one Wedding day! If your looking for just a person to capture memories, give your cousin a camera. If you looking for your memories to be a work of art, give Steve a call! Thank you Steve!!!
So happy we chose Studio 41!Reviewed on 4/04/2015 Olga F
I simply cannot say enough good things about Studio 41! Many other reviewers here praised Studio 41 for beautiful and original photos, great value, and professionalism. I wholeheartedly agree with all those positive comments. But what I liked the most about working with Steve (and Sam too) is his undeniable, genuine desire to do a great job for us and to get the most beautiful pictures possible. I have NEVER seen a photographer- or any wedding vendor for that matter- work this hard! All day long, Steve was focused on his task. He arrived early and left late. He tirelessly captured every single important moment of the day and then some. He continuously came up with creative ideas of capturing all sorts of details about the wedding. He was extremely helpful throughout the day as he kept us and our bridal party on schedule and helped with logistics, all the while telling jokes and making everyone laugh and just feel good about themselves as he kept snapping away. He amazed everyone with his professionalism, friendliness and charisma. I had multiple guests comment on what an awesome photographer we had! Steve worked tirelessly during our engagement session as well. It was our first time working together, but right away my husband and I felt relaxed and had lots of fun thanks to Steve's wonderful sense of humor and his creativity. Steve literally risked being stung by a giant bumble bee to get a pretty shot of my ring on a flower (with a bee already on it!) and he crawled through some wet/scratchy bushes to get a perfect shot of my husband and me in the woods. As if that wasn't enough, he literally lay in the middle of the road to get a stunning panoramic photo of us with gorgeous fall colors in the background. If that's not dedication, I don't know what is!!! Despite the fact that our chosen package was far not the most expensive one, Steve never made us feel rushed or unimportant. Quite the opposite! He spent ample time meeting with us and discussing our wedding details and itinerary. He always made himself available to discuss further details by phone or email- and returned my texts and phone call promptly without fail. Whenever we met, Steve always made me feel like I was his favorite bride to work with. He tirelessly listened to our input and answered our questions. Because of these qualities, my husband and I felt very comfortable in front of Steve and Sam's cameras and the results are just wonderful. Thank you Steve for all your help on our wedding day, and for the beautiful photos we will always cherish. We wish you great success and hope you will continue to make people happy with your work for many years to come!
So Happy!!!Reviewed on 4/02/2015 Spring
Steve and his team were an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only are they creative and professional in their photography, but their easygoing and fun personalities made the day go by smoothly. The photos turned out fantastic! We really like the high quality imaging of them - no pixels or blurriness at all. And it truly felt like they captured events from the whole day to make it like a picture story, from getting ready in the morning all the way to kissing goodnight. I would recommend Studio 41 for any wedding, big or small! Thank you, Steve, for giving us pictures we will love for a lifetime!!!
