After saying yes to the groom, choosing Steele Photography was probably the next best decision for our big day! From the first initial e-mail inquiries, meeting them for the first time, to the engagement shoot, weeks/days leading up to our date, and our big day, I admired how professional, comforting, and down-to-Earth Chris and Jd are. They're extremely skilled at their job and do it with incredible finesse that you're having so much fun in the process!!! As I scroll through wedding pictures, I relive those little moments, feelings, and memories all over again. It is more than I could have ever asked for. I even have numerous family members jealous of the quality of our photos compared to their own wedding ;)
To highlight the work of Chris & Jd is easy, but there are so many behind the camera tasks they excelled at that blew me away. I felt like a valued customer when they asked for our expectations of wedding photographers, incredibly special when receiving hand written notes from them, relieved when they called more than a week before the wedding to finalize little details, and I felt in great hands the day of the wedding in every single aspect.
To those seeking out wedding photographers, look no further... Steele Photography is an amazing duo that will make this experience unforgettable and exciting!

My husband and I can't say enough great things about Steele Photography. Chris and JD took amazing photos of our outdoor vineyard wedding. They have a great eye for framing a shot just right (like pointing out when my hair was slightly askew, or telling my husband to relax his smile) that made our photos look perfect. It was a bright sunny day outside, which can be challenging in pictures, and the lighting in the shots looked wonderful. They were detailed in making sure we got the shots of all our key family members, in a style that felt comfortable to us. Highly recommend them!

This husband and wife team are "simply the BEST!" It's easy for wedding photography to capture the "standard" shots of a wedding day, but Chris and Jd, see beyond that and capture "matters of the heart" They made sure to capture my very special relationship with my college daughter and moments with my elderly parents. Of course...the pics with my soul mate husband are incredible, but their insight and intuitive sense went beyond the obvious. They helped us be playful in our photo's and were creative with finding locations and lighting that were perfect. I might add, that they positioned me in the most flattering angles...which every bride truly appreciates! I can't express my gratitude and love enough for this dynamic duo of photographers. HIRE THEM, you won't be sorry! BEST investment into your wedding day (a wedding planner is tied with that investment...just sayin' :)
Since we perform hundreds of events a year, B-A-M gets to work with many of the best photographers in the NWst. We would have to rank these guys right up there at the top. Fantastic vision and artistry! You won't go wrong choosing them for your day.
I met Chris at a wedding that I was performing. He was the photographer. His presence was never felt during the ceremony and as a result his photos captured every emotion, glance and moment. You could "feel" the joy of the wedding couple in his photos. It was a beautiful wedding and reception and now every moment of it can be re-lived through the photos. I recommend CL Steele for wedding photography.
