Overall, we are very satisfied Photo Celebrations and would 100% recommend them to anyone looking to hire a photographer. Steve was a pleasure to work with for our engagement photo session and his photos turned out awesome! First we setup a call that we talked on for a while about us as a couple, what we were looking to do for our photo shoot, recommended locations and times for the shoot, outfit guidance, what the experience will be like, and all the details about how it all works with the shoot, editing, and photo delivery. He also showed us a bunch of specific photo examples from his long portfolio of past clients. Steve was very accommodating with meeting us at our chosen location a showed up early to get setup and start shooting. We got unlucky with overcast skies during what was supposed to be our beach sunset shoot, but Steve suggested we shoot anyway because we were all there (1-2 hour commute for all of us) and had gotten all dressed up, haircuts, nails, etc., but offered to do a make-up shoot free of charge on another day to catch a good sunset as well. The photos from the first shoot we’re beautiful and he was somehow able to pull out some good color from the shots despite the overcast skies throughout the entire shoot. Steve offered again to take the make-up sunset photos, so we scheduled another time to meet up for those.

Details: Posed engagement photoshoot • Traditional posed • Candid • Natural or environmental • Artful composition and lighting • Outdoors • One location • Online or digital proofs and prints • My home, venue, etc.

Steve shot our engagement photos. He made us feel very comfortable. He had some of our pictures ready the very next day and we love them. He recommended Butterfly Beach in Santa Barbara and we could not have been happier with the location. Steve is very professional and extremely knowledgeable about his craft. He responded promptly to all my messages and took the time to answer all my questions. (And I had a lot) I am SO glad we went with Photo Celebrations for our engagement photos. Thank you Steve for capturing beautiful pictures.
