Testimonials - My Clients Say it Best

A picture is worth a thousand words, but with Steve Rubin as our photographer, our wedding pictures left us speechless.  These were not simply photographs, but the telling of our story.  His work ethic demonstrated his ability to be a part of our special day instead of being merely a wedding vendor.  His presence from beginning to end, including the final product, demonstrated his attention to detail and his love for photography.  With Steve Rubin, you are not only getting a professional photographer, you are getting your own personal narrator, and we are thrilled to have him become a close friend of ours.

The scene above was the evening before Jessie & Matt's wedding. This field and especially the oak tree had special meaning in this couples life. Sadly, shortly following the wedding that mighty oak tree was destroyed in a storm. The couple was very thankful for this image as it brought back many happy memories each time they gazed upon it.

This is actually 6 images stitched together as a panorama. I try to find every opportunity in all of my weddings to produce a panarama type image.





Steve is an all around amazing photographer and businessman to work with. He is very organized and structured and helped my wedding go smoothly. He thinks of things you wouldn't think of, always has a contingency plan, goes out of his way to make sure everything is perfect.

I really appreciated the extra time in advance he put into checking out the church and the reception venue to find the best shots in advance and the time he took to come to the rehearsal. He talks you through what kind of photos you want, how artsy or standard portrait you want the wedding to be.

I could not be more happy with my photos! As he said, he blends into the background and you don't even notice he's there. Sometimes photographers can be very intrusive into "Your" moment and he was not at ALL!

He is very amiable and he gently keeps you on time which was an added benefit because a watch is not often an accessory one wears on their wedding day!

My partner and I were so thrilled to find Steve Rubin Photography! Weddings are usually a bit stressful and he took the photography portion and turned it into something magical and relieved that stress from us.

He took such an interest in our needs and wants and quite simply made it happen even beyond our expectations. He's a perfectionist and wants the photos to be awesome...and they were! He has such a natural eye and that makes him a great photographer.

Steve is a professional in every sense of the word. He's not only a great photographer but he's on time and does what he says he'll do. He is so easy to get along with and goes with the flow. Not to mention he's a fun guy to be around!
He was very courteous to all our guests and everyone loved him. He moved around during our ceremony and we didn't even know he was there. That is, until we saw these awesome shots he had taken and we said,"Hey Steve, when and HOW did you get THAT shot!".

Steve is our photographer for life and now we're happy to say, our friend for life as well. He's an honorable man and we have the utmost respect for him and his profession. You will not regret hiring Steve Rubin as your photographer for ANY occasion.

Thanks Steve for making our day come to life! We will smile as we look at the memories you've created for us and we'll smile when we think of you!

We truly enjoyed Steve as our photographer! He captured moments we did not remember as well as moments we never knew happened! My bridal party as well as my guest absolutely loved Steve.

As well as a great photographer, he is excellent at working with people. One thing that our guests mentioned is that they could really see his passion for photography.

Family and friends that could not make it to the wedding stated that it was almost like they were there after viewing the photos by Steve. He truely made Emanuel and I's day one to remember and impossible to forget.

Steve's talent and skill at capturing our wedding goes beyond my expectations and the pictures make me weep every time I look at them.  Being an outdoor home wedding, Steve was dealing with some tight spaces, crazy wall colors, and fading evening light.

Every picture was perfect.  From the formal before-wedding shots in the shade of the trees, to the vows on the sun-dappled deck, to the sunset-lit cake cutting, our wedding will always be as beautiful in frames as it was on that special day.  Thank you, Steve!

I am very pleased with Steve Rubin Photography. He did a wonderful job at capturing every special moment. I could not have asked for a better photographer. He made me feel comfortable,he worked around me and was very well organized.

In the photos of our wedding he captured every moment from laughing with families and friends and the love in our eyes. The slide show was so amazing, It was perfect for the friends and family who could not attend to see the wedding and all of the details that Steve was able to capture.

He made the lighting Perfect in every photo and incorporated the colors of our wedding in the slide show. It was perfect and I could not have asked for a better experience.
