Steven is extremely efficient. In addition to coming to us for our family portrait he got set up in minutes! We knocked out many different photo locations and poses, if you will, in less than an hour. It probably helped that this group included 4 adults. In addition to a great experience during our shoot, Steven was very quick to edit our photos and send over the photo samples. Love that we get 10 free downloads too!Jan 6, 2015Verified
After reviewing many different photographers' websites, I chose Steven Bourelle for my son's senior photos. He was able to capture some great outdoor pictures of my son, who is not the easiest person to photograph. I received a variety of poses, nicely edited to make my kid look great. I asked for one specific photo to be edited in a slightly different way, and he was able to do it immediately. He cared a great deal about my satisfaction with the photos. I would definitely recommend him!Nov 12, 2018VerifiedBourelle Photography's reply
Thank you Kim!! I enjoyed working with you guys!
Steven Bourelle does wonderful work! He was very accommodating with our schedule, selected a beautiful outdoor setting, and produced gorgeous portraits of our family. Highly recommended!Nov 25, 2018VerifiedBourelle Photography's reply
Thank you so much, Victoria!! It was a pleasure to meet and work with your wonderful family!!
What a delight. Everything about the experience was excellent. The photos are of high quality. Stephen was professional and punctual. And the cost was surprisingly reasonable. Stephen shared the photos in real time to make sure he was meeting our needs.But the real pleasure with Stephen. He is funny, made the experience memorable, And put everyone at ease. I’ve invited him back!Oct 17, 2018Verified
Steve acted very professionally and we were pleased with our pictures. Our only concern was that in his own photo, Steve looked very professional (Nice haircut and collared shirt). When he came to our place of business to do the work, his hair was long and he was wearing jeans and a tie-dyed T-shirt. It did not make a very good first impression.Nov 30, 2017VerifiedBourelle Photography's reply
Just a quick correction on this review, I wasn't wearing a tie-dyed shirt. I would never wear tie-dye for a photo shoot, the bright colors reflect horribly in the subject's eyes. I was wearing a plain colored shirt with a flannel over the top.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The client and I communicate either by phone, email, or sometimes even text message. Through this communication, we come up with a plan and cost to get the client what they are looking for in their photos. After the shoot, I get the photos to the client within 5 days. The photos are delivered digitally through an online gallery. The client can then choose which images to download, or order prints directly from the online gallery.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been a photographer for over 25 years and specialize in using natural, outdoor light. I have taken classes in studio lighting and now feel just as comfortable working in the studio as I do outdoors. In my headshot photography, I've studied what casting directors look for in actor headshots. I've also taken classes in headshot photography and have had my work critiqued by some of the best headshot photographers around. I have 16+ years experience using Adobe Photoshop to process and retouch images.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?For the last 25+ years, I’ve had a camera in my hands. I began as a nature photographer, shooting mountains, sunsets, streams, flowers and anything wild. Several years ago I discovered the enjoyment of portrait photography and a whole new world opened to me. I reinvented myself as a photographer, and I am now dedicated to bringing happiness and joy, through my photos, to my clients.
