My husband and I decided on a destination wedding in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Thankfully, I found out about a "Destination Wedding Bride" Facebook page that was very helpful, with lots of information from brides that have had a destination wedding.Sent on 03/03/2017
Upon looking on the Facebook page, I was searching photographers. I knew my husband and I had a photo package included in our wedding package on resort, but was very skeptical about the resort photographer.
That's when I found Photophil! BEST photographer, hands down! I sent Phil a message and he replied right away, and we were chatting, emailing back and forth. I felt very comfortable talking to Phil, he was informative and by looking at his photos on his Facebook I knew we had to book a Trash the Dress shoot with him. Phil and I decided three days after our wedding would be a good time. Phil picked my husband and I up at our resort, and drove us all around Punta Cana and took the most beautiful photos! We also went to a local beach not far out of town, and went right into the ocean. It was the best day, aside from the day my husband and I got married, of course.
Phil is one of the most outgoing, friendly, knowledgeable, and talented photographers ever!
FUTURE BRIDES: As much as you may think that your husband to be maybe wouldn't be a big fan of trying something like this, do it anyways! I thought my husband didn't want to go, and was worrying about it the morning of. He was all for it! My husband had so much fun. I'm so glad we went, I would regret not having these photos for the rest of my life.
Once again, Photophil... thank you so much, from Jesse and I, for the awesome experience.

Phil was the photographer at my best friends wedding out of country in the Dominicans! I have modeled for over 8 years and still consider him one of the most quality and imaginative photographers I have had the pleasure of working with. The photos came out pristine and more then you knew what to do with. During the day he went above and beyond his call of duty, including bringing energy drinks, photo accessories and much more. From the time you will meet him, to the time you get your photos he keeps a very light humorous atmosphere and most of all stays professional. I would recommend Phil in a heartbeat!Sent on 10/05/2017

I had a wonderful experience at Majestic Colonial for my wedding and it def helped because I had such an awesome photographer Photophil Steingard. He has so much energy (more than me). Not only is he a great photographer, he also helped to guide me on how the day should unfold. This is my first (hopefully only lol) wedding so I had no clue what to do. He provided me with a timeline on how the day should go. He also knows where to take you to get the most amazing pictures! I got my pictures back last week and people have been telling me that their the best wedding pictures they've ever seen. I also had the Brazilian style carnival & firedancers. They gave that additional wow factor to the reception. It was def worth the money. My groom and loved ones had the time of their lives.Sent on 31/08/2016

We were lucky enough to hear about Phil, he's on the Nottawasaga Inn list, and were extremely happy when he agreed to photograph our daughter’s wedding this past May weekend, 2016. I had a long telephone conversation with Phil about the event and he is a man of vision. The event went off without a problem, he kept within our daughter’s time line for photographs and he is beyond professional - he becomes your best friend and wedding planner. This is a man with one goal - to make sure you have a great time! His pictures (we added a slide show at the end of the evening) are so beautiful. There are a thousand words associated with every photograph we saw. Every guest commented on Phil, and none were negative. Phil and his assistant were beyond perfect. We also had the add-on of the Photo Booth, which the guests thought were fantastic and none had ever seen it before, which was nice and definitely a lot of fun. Phil has a wonderful outgoing personality, he danced, he talked, he laughed and most importantly he made people comfortable. We want to thank you Phil for helping make our daughter’s wedding the wonderful, fun event it was. You were great from the beginning - what a personality! and energy!! Can hardly wait to see the rest of the pictures - know they will be amazing. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts. Peter & Margo JSent on 07/06/2016

Phil was everything you'd want in a wedding photographer. Meet him for 5 seconds and you're already drawn in by his energy and passion for what he does, and his sincere focus on making his clients the happiest they can be on their day.Sent on 09/04/2016
As the groom, I had no idea what to expect from a photographer meeting all my groomsmen and family, and it shows that he had an incredible impact by how many of them immediately added him to social media when they got home. No one who met him would hire anyone else for an event they want remembered perfectly through photo.
He meshed perfectly with the videographer we hired for the wedding... The photos and video complemented each other to a t for the entire day and night.
You'll never find a photographer with more enthusiasm, attention to detail, sense of humour to break the ice, and precise direction to get the EXACT photos you never knew were even possible.
If you're reading this and need any other information about Phil before making the decision to go with him, please feel free to reach out by email and my wife and I would be happy to share stories and photos. You won't be disappointed. Camp0433@gmail.com.

Phil was wonderful! Even before we hired him, he was a great help in our scary planning of a destination wedding. He takes his services all the way up to the highest level and ensures the entire experience is wonderful. He is incredibly personable and every guest loved him! His quality and variety of photos is impressive and we receive so many compliments about them! Highly recommend!!Sent on 10/05/2017

Phil is more then just a photographer. He becomes your friend! He was there for us since the day we booked him. He expressed to us that he would pretty much be our 2nd wedding Coordinator for our destination wedding...and he followed through. He relieved so much of my stress before the wedding. He had no problem answering my questions anytime of day. And sometime just not about the photography but about the resort and wedding itself. He takes a lot of pride and enjoyment in his job and couldn't have asked for a better photographer . So make sure, if he is available, you boom Phil (happy, happy). Thanks Phil for all your hard work and amazing pictures :)Sent on 01/01/2016
Phil Steingard Studios's reply:Thanks Krista. Both of you did become friends by the time this was all over and done. The wedding, the party and even our 2nd day Rock the Dress was a blast. Great photo keepsakes for years to come. Thanks for allowing us to be part of all of this. I know we will keep in touch and hope we get to hang out an another wedding Photophil Steingard
