From the outset Aaron Bornfleth Studios went out of their way to make us feel we mattered. They were accommodating, professional and our photographer David did an absolutely outstanding job taking all the shots we asked for and then some. I recommend them highly. Very competitive pricing as well. The follow up after the wedding was also great. We couldn't be happier.

Excellent services from beginning to end. Friendly, responsive, dedicated throughout our wedding day and reception. Really went the extra mile. Worked really well in conjunction with our videographer. Photos looked fantastic, well shot and creative. Everything we could ask for in a photographer

Aaron was beyond our highest expectations for our wedding photographs. He made sure to develop an understanding of our entire family to make sure the appropriate moments were captured. His sunset photographs are second to none. We had many of our friends and family say that these photos "should be in a magazine" and "these are the best wedding photos I have ever seen". We got married at the Grand Plaza and Aaron and David knew exactly where and when to get the perfect photos. He worked close with our DJ to ensure we did not miss to much of the reception for our sunset photos. The entire process went seamlessly and we are thrilled with our pictures.

Aaron is not just any old wedding photography -- he is an artist! It was important to Stephen and I that we stay true to ourself, and we wanted a photographer who could really capture the emotion and spirit of the day. The candid shots he got were absolutely beautiful, as were the "posed" ones with family. He made us feel at ease and gave us direction that was easy to follow and didn't feel awkward. One of the most IMPRESSIVE things about Aaron is that he DOES HIS RESEARCH. He scouted out both venues (ceremony and reception) and came prepared, knowing where he wanted to get cool shots. Our theme was Industrial Modern, and he incorporated this into the photos without us even asking (taking pictures of letters, rings, etc against industrial looking backgrounds). Aaron was the first vendor we hired and I am so glad we did. We also hired his team for Video and were very impressed with their professionalism and creativity as well!

Hiring Aaron and his team to photograph and video our wedding was hands-down one of the best wedding planning decisions we made. Just browsing his website you get a great taste of his talent, but seeing yourselves in those incredible photos is breathtaking. At our engagement session, my (then) fiance and I were instantly comfortable with Aaron. He did his homework scouting out great locations for photos, and was even able to accommodate our dogs into some of the shots, which was really special to us. On our wedding day, having Aaron there seemed more like having a friend than a hired photographer. He and his wife did an incredible job of being everywhere, but not feeling like they were on top of us the whole night. Dave, his videographer, was incredible too! His creativity with posing shots, but not having them feel posed takes true talent. All three of them are incredibly professional and truly the best at what they do. I am still getting compliments about our photos and video trailer from our friends and family members. Speaking with other brides, they can’t believe that we got all of the fully-edited photos back two weeks after my event!! Those two weeks seemed like forever, I can’t imagine waiting any longer. I think that genuine is the best word to describe Aaron and his team – they genuinely love what they do, the genuinely care about getting the best photos of your big day, and they genuinely care about you. I couldn’t imagine having anyone else there to photograph our wedding day. At the end of the day, after years go by, the photographs, video, and memories may be the only thing we have left of the wedding day that we spent so much time planning. I am happy to have these moments captured forever so beautifully.Sent on 02/27/2017

Aaron was absolutely wonderful and his pictures are amazing! He captured the most amazing moments throughout the day of the wedding and during the actual event with a unique artistic approach. Beyond the amazing pictures, his comforting presence made everyone feel as if he was part of the group, yet still very professional. My family and guest all commented how wonderful he was and I'm thankful to have an amazing photographer that could keep my nerves down on a day when they naturally peak. I highly recommend him if you want a seasoned professional and amazing photos - he is worth every penny!
Bridgette · Married on 10/28/2016
We got married a year ago and use our pictures to help us remember every detail. Aaron was amazing. He really knows what he’s doing- I never once saw him during the ceremony or reception. His ability to take amazing pictures without getting in the way of anything is just phenomenal. And the pictures are just stunning. I cannot give him enough stars for his amazing work. Ps- if you can, do the photo booth!!!
Tina · Married on 10/22/2016
Aaron was simply excellent and worth every single penny. My husband and I hired him off of a recommendation from a close friend, and it was definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!! He was always professional and has a very relaxed way about him, which made me feel so comfortable while I was getting ready. I barely noticed he was there during the ceremony and reception, but he managed to beautifully capture every important moment of the day. And the PICTURES!! They turned out so much better than we ever hoped for. We look like we belong in a magazine, which takes some skill! Our family and friends are raving about the the photos, and I want to frame every single one! Wonderful personality, fantastic photography - what more can you ask for?
Molly · Married on 10/09/2016
I simply can't say enough about how wonderful Aaron Bornfleth is!!! His pictures are astonishing! He makes you and your loved ones into a piece of art. These are definitely not just pictures, they are true portraits that tell a story and somehow reveal a little piece of spirit of the person. Not only is Aaron a truly gifted artist but he is genuinely a wonderful person. He is so easy to work with, always the up-most professional, extremely accommodating to every request & responds very quickly to all inquires. But not least important Aaron makes the whole experience fun!!! I would recommend Aaron Bornfleth to anyone who truly wants the best in quality and experience.
Candice · Married on 09/10/2016
My wedding coordinator referred me to Aaron Bornfleth since i was planning a wedding out of state and was unfamiliar with any photographers in the St. Pete area. By far one of the best decisions I made was choosing him as my wedding photographer! He was very personable and timely responding to emails throughout the whole process, allowing me to feel very comfortable. He captured every moment of my wedding day in the most beautiful way. Not to mention his pictures are beyond AMAZING! Definitely one of the best parts of my wedding day!

So photography is one of the most important vendors you will book for your wedding. It's something that you can't make a mistake and have someone that doesn't know what they are doing to capture that one moment, that first kiss, that first glance, the emotions throughout the day. I spent hours on hours researching and meeting with over a dozen of photographers. Especially when you are spending a big chunk of your wedding money - it's important to make sure you are getting what you want. Aaron was a diamond in the rough. I actually found him through a friend and he lives on the west coast, where I'm on the east coast. I met all other photographers in person and then I had our first meeting with Aaron through skype. Both my now husband and I looked at each other and knew right away after our meeting that he was the guy for us. His work is amazing - captures people in their own skin without the photos being overly edited or touched. He is able to create photos out of nothing and give you an image that is beyond beautiful. He also captured all the raw, unstaged, unedited emotions from my first look with my dad, my mother-in-laws reaction to reading her sons card, my mother seeing me for the first time, and to my sister trying to hold it all together when I was walking down the isle. These are the moments that you want captured and you want them in focus and not missed. Aaron can do this with his awesome wife that also takes photos with him. On top of all of this, he made us feel comfortable and relaxed. At points, I even forgot he was even there! He has a great personality and you can tell he has passion for what he does. Also he doesn't limit the hours for your wedding, that's one thing that was just an extra bonus. He gives you an unlimited amount of time on your wedding day so you don't have to stress about how many hours he needs to be there and how much extra it will cost. Photography was a priority for me and I'm beyond pleased with Aaron and his work!
Carolyn · Married on 02/20/2016
Aaron was absolutely incredible. Not only was he attentive and responsive to our needs, but the quality of his work was simply outstanding. We could not be more satisfied both with our photographs and with the experience of having Aaron capture our wedding day. We would be remiss if we did not also mention Aaron's assistant photographer and wife, Casey, and office assistant and post-production extraordinaire, Irini, as they both made the entire process easy and enjoyable with their talent, responsiveness, and professionalism. We would (and will) recommend Aaron and his team to any of our friends in a heartbeat. Thanks for your amazing work!
Elizabeth · Married on 02/13/2016
Aaron goes above and beyond!!! Our pictures came out amazing and he had some really creative ideas!! Literally the pictures were my favorite part of the wedding. I would definitely recommend him!!! These are pictures we will treasure for the rest of our lives.
Julia · Married on 10/17/2015
We chose Aaron based on other photos that we'd viewed from other weddings he had shot, so we knew that we'd be getting beautiful images, but they still exceeded our expectations. Additionally, Aaron had an incredibly friendly, professional and calming demeanor. He understood what was important to us, got those shots and then let us enjoy the day in a natural way. We couldn't recommend him more.
Michelle · Married on 08/28/2015
Unbelievable perfection!!......those are the only words I can think of that adequately describes our wedding pictures and even those words fall short of describing exactly the level of pure artistry Aaron’s work reflects. He managed to beautifully capture every minute of our day and perfectly depict all the emotions, passion, happiness and love that we have for each other. The candid shots he took captured the moment in time so perfectly that they literally took our breath away and took both of us back to that fairy tale like day. He is truly an artist, not a photographer. The magic he creates when he looks through the lens of his camera is flawless and masterful. This is what he was meant to do in life. We cannot thank him enough for the amazing pictures and memories he delivered!
Holli · Married on 08/06/2015
Pictures were absolutely perfect. Aaron was my favorite vendor to work with! I've viewed his pictures on his website, and thought, no way my pictures could turn out that great, but he definitely proved me wrong. There are no words to describe how powerful and amazing the photos that Aaron took turned out. Every picture had its own meaning and the shots were priceless.

Aaron was wonderful! Right from the first interaction, I knew he was going to be great. He responded immediately (I'm serious, within minutes) to my emails, texts, and phone calls. He even offered to help me with wedding details outside of photography. Since I was booking an entire wedding from out of state, I was not able to formally sit down with him before the wedding, but it make no difference in how the pictures turned out. I love them, and my family is equally happy about them! I also had him do a video for us, which turned out wonderful as well. We had an outdoor wedding, and when it started to rain, he was great about finding new places to take photos inside. I can't say enough good things about his photography, and I'd recommend him to anyone!
Lindsay · Married on 06/06/2015
Aaron did an absolutely amazing job with both our engagement photo session and the coverage of our wedding. Yes, the photographs were stunningly beautiful, but working with Aaron was also just such a pleasant experience! He was always happy to answer any questions that we had, and made sure to respond to emails or phone calls right away. He was so helpful when I needed any wedding advice, and made sure to work closely with our other vendors to make sure the day went smoothly. Most of all, Aaron is excited about his work and loved to get creative with different environments and light. This elevated the pictures from captured memories, to true works of art. He is also so genuine and friendly that you feel like you are working with someone you have known forever. I would, without a doubt, recommend Aaron to anyone who needs a photographer, and would love to work with him again for future occasions.
Adela · Married on 05/23/2015
What beautiful memories we have of our wedding day! Aaron and Casey were incredible working with us, they made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. They captured moments that we will always cherish. We can't go back to that day but we can always reminisce as we look at our beautiful photographs thanks to Aaron and Casey.
Kelly · Married on 05/02/2015
We had a wonderful experience working with Aaron as our photographer. He takes the time to get to know you and makes you feel comfortable. I didn't feel like I was taking pictures, but instead just hanging out with my husband. As nervous and stressed out I was on my wedding, his calm demanor helped me to relax and truly enjoy my wedding day. He not only did our wedding photography but also our engagement pictures, which turned out beautiful as well. He knows how to capture the special moments and create these amazing pictures. I couldn't be any happier. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants their pictures to be perfect and to work with such a great person.
Heather · Married on 05/01/2015
Aaron and his team were amazing to work with for our wedding! I looked at two other photographers but STOPPED LOOKING when I found his work on the Style Me Pretty blog! His work is amazing, timeless, and inspiring! When I booked with Aaron the process was so simple - he let me customize my package for what we wanted/needed and even let me change my mind a few times! After the wedding, I had friends and family members compliment me on how friendly and attentive Aaron and his team were while at the reception! We opted for the mini studio and it was such a huge hit! Unlike a photo booth, the mini studio was right off the dance floor so people could party and get pictures without missing a single moment of the action! The mini studio was also a little more personalized! Of course, our couple photos are stunning, and we are left with the perfect memories for a once in a lifetime day! Also, Aaron was familiar with the venue, other vendors, and my wedding coordinator which made the day run so smoothly! I did not have to worry that one moment was being missed! After a few getting ready shots with Aaron I knew my photos and memories would be captured perfectly - no extra stressing out needed! Do not trust anyone else but Aaron and his team to take care of your wedding!

Choosing the perfect photographer ranked in my top 3 most important wedding decisions, right next to dress and venue! I needed the right person who could document my wedding day to the extent that years down the road my husband and I would be able to relive every single moment to the fullest potential. I set the bar pretty high, but even so, I found the perfect photographer! Aaron's photos are exquisite. He captured not just the picture of what was happening but also the emotion of the moment. The feeling of the day is so evident in every photo. The colors are vibrant, the clarity is perfect, the lighting is fantastic, the composition is inventive, everything about them is just perfection. Aaron was amazingly efficient with time. He does all his scouting and shot prep before the actual day, so all the leg work is already done. He is also one of the kindest, most genuine people you will ever meet! It was so fun having him with us throughout our whole day, and I came to consider him not just our photographer, but also a friend. Even though he shoots weddings all the time, he was excited and happy to be with us and eager to find all those special moments that made our wedding uniquely ours. I could not be any happier with the service or the products (which are all amazingly reasonable in price as well). Whenever my sister gets married, we know who her photographer will be! To all brides out there searching for a photographer: stop looking and just hire Aaron. Seriously. It’ll be one of the best wedding decisions you’ll make.
Nisha · Married on 04/04/2015
It was such a pleasure to work with Aaron and his wife on our wedding day!!!!! From our meeting prior to the wedding to our wedding day spanning 12 hours, he was always so calm and reassuring (which was very much appreciated on such a hectic and stressful day!!). He captured wonderful candid moments, had great ideas for poses/locations, and was very open-minded and accommodating with what we wanted as well. His professionalism was excellent and incomparable.
We were so excited when we received our photos from the wedding! Despite such a long day full of events and a busy schedule, he was able to send us our photos in a timely manner. Both Aaron and his wife captured so many touching moments that really bring us back to our special day every time we look at our photos. We're currently selecting photos to include in our wedding album and there are so many to chose!! We would highly recommend Aaron Bornfleth for any event!
Lesley · Married on 03/06/2015
Aaron was absolutely great and got a really good feel for our personalities quickly so he could capture the most natural pictures of the two of us. Everytime we look back at the pictures of our special day, the feelings and emotions in the moment are able to be relived. Aaron is a try genius with the camera!
Kate · Married on 01/03/2015
I (NY) met Aaron (Florida) over the phone first and booked him based off that conversation! His professionalism is outstanding and the day of our wedding he communicated very clearly as to what he needed from me to make the days schedule go smoothly and worked with our coordinator directly. When he told me the sunset was at 5:48 pm I knew he was on his game! Ironically Aaron was there all day but he blended in so well that you didn't notice and the pictures reflect that. The photos are unbelievable and are worth every penny, we couldn't be happier with them!
