Steve has an ability to capture those special moments - the glances, tears, and loving looks. I had recommended Steve for our daughter’s wedding, but he made it a point to have the bride and groom be the sole decision makers- as it should be. We all appreciated that we should make decisions about formal portraits so we didn’t waste time having fun at the wedding. Everyone was super happy with the final product. He has amazing talent!Dec 5, 2018
Steve did an excellent job photographing my son for his senior pictures. We had to change the date several times and he was so understanding and very flexible. We live in Georgetown and had my son's pictures done downtown and at blue hole. Steve came up with some great ideas for Cianan and he was so creative! He even surprised me by having the proofs ready for us on Mothers Day. I was very excited to see the pictures as they came out great... My son is so handsome! We had an 11x14 made up for my son's graduation party and the touch ups he did were very professional. Everyone at the party loved the picture! Steve is also just a great guy, we really enjoyed getting to know him. He is down to earth and doesn't even seem to realize what a great photographer he is. I would and will recommend him to anyone who needs a professional photographer. Need some awesome pictures? Steve is the one for you!......Tamye McSpadden 6~9~16Jun 10, 2016Verified
We first contacted Steve because of the price point. Since then, though, we’ve been blown away by his professionalism, organization, good humor and artistic sense. We planned our Austin wedding from Chicago, and Steve was great about setting up phone calls to “meet” us, and was flexible about scheduling my bridal shoot during the busy winter holiday season, the only time I be in town before the wedding. During both the bridal shoot and the wedding, Steve was on top of soliciting our expectations (must-have shots, locations, timeline) but also rolled with it admirably if something got changed. We just got our wedding photos back and were amazed by how Steve and his assistant kept track not only of us but also our parents, siblings, and closest friends during the ceremony and reception so that we’re able to enjoy all the moments we completely missed the day of. Steve doesn’t do a lot of artistic re-touching or contrived posing, but his sense of lighting and framing is rock solid. If you want someone to beautifully document your wedding as it unfolds, Steve’s our guy.May 6, 2017
What a talent. He does great work and is easy to work with. I would highly recommend Steve Coyle Photography.Dec 31, 2017
Steve is extremely talented, professional, and kind. He did my Bridal portraits and my wedding, and my husband and I couldn't be happier with the final products. His organization and knowledge helped put at ease, and his photos speak for themselves. You won't regret going with him!Feb 20, 2017

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My standard rate is $150 an hour. This will typically provide you with 20-30 fully edited, high resolution, ready for printing digital files per hour of shooting on my website for you to download. For my clients I offer printing through my lab at my costs, a substantial savings to my regular print rates and a superb quality to most places you might send your photos to to have printed. I highly encourage my clients to take advantage of this offer.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I typically will be in touch with you before and after the shoot. Taking your photos is really only the beginning of my work with you. I offer my clients the ability to purchase their photos through my website at a reduced rate from those I charge for my fine art photography. The advantage of this to you, compared to using photos from a DVD, is that if you order a print that you have to crop to fit into the frame of your choice, I will review your selection and potentially provide a better crop than you could make from the digital file you used. This has been a big benefit to several of my clients and an added feature not available from shoot and burn photographers.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have over 30 years of photography experience. I am a member of the Professional Photographers of America, Texas Professional Photographers and Austin Professional Photographers.
