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!!
If you are looking for a photographer who is a pleasure to be around and is talented beyond words Studio41 is who you should hire for your big day! When it came to our wedding, our pictures were the most important thing. We wanted someone who would be able to capture our most special day in the most beautiful way possible. Steve just sent us our photos of the big day and we are BEYOND obsessed!!! We couldn't be happier! He truly made our special day look like a fairytale! Looking at our photos put huge smiles on both of our faces! We couldn't have chosen a better team to capture our day! Honestly, hands down the nicest people to work with! Our family and friends were just as impressed with Steve as we were. Steve, thanks again for keeping us laughing the entire day (even through the days mishaps). We love you guys and can't wait until our next big event to have you be a part of it!
When my fiance and I were planning our wedding, one of the things we discussed about a photographer is that we wanted someone who was unique, personal but also affordable for us. I did sooooo much research to try and find the perfect fit for us. I had narrowed it down to two photographers, Studio 41 being one of them, so I made an appointment for my fiance and I to meet Steve. I remember walking out of our appointment: both of us looked at each other and said 'he's it - he's our photographer.' And it turned out to be the perfect decision for us. Fast forward to our wedding day: Steve, you and Sam are AMAZING! Our entire bridal party thought you two were so funny and easy to work with (as did we). Even with just the teasers we have (which are GORGEOUS), we already know that you two did a wonderful, beautiful job capturing our special day. Thank you for making everything flow smoothly and for just being awesome people. I would 100% recommend you to anyone I know. Much love to you! -Scott and Katie Cain: July 29, 2016
Studio 41 photography and videography was hands down one of the best purchases for our wedding! We had our engagement shoot with Steve last year which was an absolute blast! My fiance now husband was dreading taking pictures for an hour but had a great time! Steve is amazing! His work is one of a kind! The photos were spectacular! Photos we will always treasure! Steve was amazing throughout the entire process. He helped us to pick out the perfect sites to take pictures at the day off (as we had 4 hours to do so). Waddie and Albyn were our photographers the day of. They were AMAZING. They worked their tails off to make sure we had amazing photos the day of our wedding. My bouquet was gorgeous but weighed 30 lbs and Waddie would be carrying my bouquet and his equipment around to give me a break (I mean who does that!? That was so sweet). Our photos from the day of absolutely blew us away. We had never seen more gorgeous photos. Between the photos at our respective getting ready spots, to the albeit plain church we got married at (which they made look spectacular in photos), to Belle isle, to the detroit library, to the grosse pointe war memorial- hands down the best photos we have ever seen. They were so kind and courteous throughout the day. They even put up with our strict church coordinator in the most professional manner I have seen yet. I cannot speak enough praises about Waddie and Albyn, they were just phenomenal. Jake was our lead videographer. Him and his team were UNREAL. The highlight video looks like it came straight out of hollywood studios. I showed a few people whose husbands do videography for a living and they were just blown away. They have far beyond met our expectations! My husband and I watch the video almost daily! It is a perfect snapshot of our incredible day! The video from the drone is one of the coolest shots we have seen. We loved our venue and the drone perfectly captured the beauty of the building not to mention so many other shots. We cannot wait to see the full length film! I CANNOT THANK STUDIO 41 PHOTOGRAPHY ENOUGH! In the words of Ron Burgundy, I would like to scream it on a mountain top how amazing the team at Studio 41 photography is. You will not be disappointed. I would choose them over and over again if given the chance. The photos and video are a priceless treasure we will always have! THANK YOU AGAIN!
We wish we could give them 10/10 stars. Hands down, made our wedding day above and beyond amazing. After seeing our engagement photos, we knew how outstanding this was going to be. Steve, Alvyn, Waddie, and Jake went above and beyond for us. I already knew I was the luckiest guy in the world, but these guys captured every moment throughout the day. They were absolutely amazing.
Steve and his crew did an amazing job on my wedding photos. One month after my wedding, Steve sent me all of my photos, that is unheard of! He was a pleasure to work with, and I cannot say nothing but amazing things about his work. He was very professional, organized, and fun. I already have been told by friends and family how amazing my wedding photos came out. I will recommend Steve and Studio 41 to ALL future couples!!
It is pretty obvious by all the reviews here that Steve is the best and it is true. He was the first vendor that we met with (after looking at multiple other photographers online) and there was no need to meet with other photographers. We loved his work, style and personality right away. He was definitely our favorite vendor. He is very professional which is extremely important to us and very creative. He is very passionate about his work and puts a lot of effort which is shown in his work. We loved working with him and his team and we would recommend Studio41 to everyone!
Hi everyone! Another one of Studio41's very happy brides here! :) first let me begin by saying how great Steve was from day one. He really made me feel important. I had shopped around in the metropolitan area for a few weeks before I finally chose to work with Studio41! Other photographers didn't make me feel like my wedding was a priority for them and just didn't seem that excited at all. From the beginning Steve was so upbeat and positive and believe me when I tell you-- your wedding day is a LONG DAY! You want your vendors to bring their A game the whole day so that you can get the best possible result afterwards. That's what your photos are.. They're the only evidence of your day once it's long gone. Steves personality was amazing and he literally does not stop moving! He's always creating new poses and that made me really happy because we have no experience modeling so we needed all the help we could get ;) he was also great with extended family and both my husband and my immediate families. They all commented at the end of the night what a great job he did! If you want photos that will literally last a lifetime and will make you relive your wedding day studio41 is who you want to work with! He gives you 150% and when it comes to photos you need to invest in a quality photographer and that's what studio 41 offers to their clients--impeccable quality. Many of my family members took down their contact information after my wedding so that they could utilize this company for their special events--I hope who ever reads this decides to do the same. I promise you won't regret it.
Steve was an absolute pleasure to work with. From the first day I met with him I instantly knew he was going to make my wedding day look incredible. He and his team are true professionals. Steve has such a passion for his work and it really shows in everything that he does. Steve was the perfect addition to our wedding. He captured the whole day so beautifully and did not miss a beat. I am beyond pleased with his work ethic and dedication to his clients and especially his brides. I cannot stress enough how happy my husband and I were with Steve, his team, and their work! Perfection! :) :D
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!
