    As a DIY, frugal bride with a relatively low budget, my approach to finding a photographer was simple: search Wedding Wire by highly-rated, but low price point photographers local to my venue. Boy, am I glad I used this approach, as it is how we found Steve. His online portfolio looked great, but after meeting in person, his deameanor is what tipped it over the edge for us. He is laid-back, open-minded, and a nature lover which was important to us knowing the terrain of our venue. On our wedding day, he was truly a calming presence, and he doesn't make you do wacky poses or anything you're not comfortable with. After our first look, we just strolled through the farm/park, stopping at points of interest along the way, and smiled! He delivered our pictures at an unheard of speed, and they are absolutely gorgeous. The portraits of just us are naturally my favorite, but I'm also in love with both of our getting ready pics, creative pics of our stationery/rings/accessories/etc., and ceremony pics (he really captured all of the emotions, from the unieasiness we both felt the first minute or two, to us easing into the ceremony, to pure joy and happiness by the end!). I was also so happy to see all the pics of me smiling and laughing with family and friends, because beyond the portraits we took with our immediate families right before the ceremony, Steve was a ghost. I truly didn't realize he was capturing everything! It was important to us that we came away with beautiful pictures without feeling like complete sellouts to the wedding industry, and Steve delivered. I know he also offers options for a second shooter, videographer, etc. if those things are important and/or necessary for you and your wedding. Thanks so much again, Steve. We loved working with you and you genuinely contributed to making our day so special and memorable :)

    We had an amazing experience with Crystal Lake Pictures. Steve was wonderful. He met with us beforehand to discuss exactly what we were looking for and he met every expectation. Our pictures came out beautiful and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. He was punctual on the day of the wedding, a pleasure to work with, and accommodated every wish we had. After he edited our pictures, one can really see what a true artist is. He made a masterpiece with lighting and color that was perfection. I would highly recommend Crystal Lake Pictures. We truly appreciate how easy and pleasant he made our experience on the day of our wedding and the beautiful pictures that we will cherish for a lifetime.
