Steve was great! We loved him from the minute we met him, it's easy to see his talent in his work but he is awesome person to boot! We love that he insists on doing engagement photos as well in order to get to know the couple before the wedding and we had a blast at that shoot too! On our wedding day, he was just awesome, the moment he arrived everyone was at ease and taking pictures was just so fun (and most of my bridal party HATES having their pictures taken). He made sure we got all of the important shots that I had on my list, got creative with how to shoot most of them and even got a shot of my first promotion in Brazilian jiu jitsu which was an awesome suprise added for the day and meant a lot to my husband and I (and I'm sure my BJJ coach). I could go on and on about how great and fun it is to work with Steve, but I'm just going to recommend he shoots your wedding instead, he's awesome.

Steve is the absolute BEST! I picked Steve and Valen Studios because I was worried that my fiancé and his buds wouldn't want to take a bunch of photos and would get grumpy quickly. I was looking for someone who had an infectious personality that could take charge of our bridal party without feeling like a drill sergeant, thus allowing us to get the photos I desperately wanted without upsetting the bridal party too much. Steve not only is an incredibly talented photographer (his portfolio can speak to that) but his personality makes him ideal to work with bridal parties. Steve is prompt, responsive, fun, and beyond talented. I loved all aspects of my wedding but Steve and Dean truly made the day over the top amazing, only photographers I will use from here on out! Thank you so incredibly much, I am extremely grateful!!

Steve was able to see us on VERY short notice and produce so many amazing pictures of my daughter we had a difficult time selecting the best - so we didn't! We picked four! He has a personality that puts children and their moms at ease. My daughter enjoyed the experience so much, she came home and taught my husband how to pose for a headshot ;) . We will definitely come back for more pictures. And you can't beat the convenient downtown Grayslake location.
Top 1% photographic artist in the USA! Please give them a call, they are so worth it!
Steve and Harper sure know how to capture every moment. Very talented and fun to work with.
