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

Photo Phil was amazing!!! He saved our destination wedding as our original photographer (husbands family friend) backed out. Not only is Phil the photographer he also helped coordinating the wedding. He helped with the days timeline, keeping things moving and directing people where they needed to be.Sent on 27/12/2015
Photo Phil was also awesome with my husband as he hates, hates, hates pictures and was dead set against hiring another photorapher. Phil worked hard to keep my husband happy, he was fast and fun. He even brought my husband a bottle of Captain Morgan, which you cant get in the DR and by the end of the night they were best friends. My husband even said mid-way through the day, "that guy was worth every dime"! Our guest also noticed what a great photographer Phil was, they were all commenting how cool and fun he was. Phil was also the party planner when it came time for the dance. He was able to get all our guests on the dance floor and even brought props that made some pretty great party pics.
Phil also goes above and beyond after the wedding is over, he sent us a few sneak peep pictures that I requested for our Christmas cards and kept us in the loop as when we would get our photos back. We got our wedding pictures back last week and we are so in love! There are so many pictures and they are all SO GREAT! Phil cares about the quality and detail and it shows.
We were so impressed with Phil, he went above and beyond for us... Do yourself a favor and hire Photo Phil, you will not be disappointed!!
Phil Steingard Studios's reply:Nicole....thanks for the kind words. I had so much fun at your wedding. I did work hard on getting Ryan to like me and that bottle of Rum sure helped.....lol Yes by the end of the evening we were best friends. Each wedding is different and so are the people and its important being flexible to keep everyone happy. By doing so made the day perfect. You had an awesome group at the wedding, so bringing the photo props helped to make the best party EVER!!!! Thanks and friends forever.... :) Photophil Steingard

We can't even express how happy we were to have Phil as our photographer. He was extremely helpful with everything. Once we had our first meeting with Phil we were 100% comfortable, and knew everything would run smoothly. He made us feel like everything will work out. The photos that Phil took are absolutely stunning!! He was very flexible with us, and not only was he just taking pictures he was part of the party as well. We decided we did not want to do trash the dress in Dominican anymore so he provided other solutions which was very nice of him. All in all we are very pleased with Phils work and would recommend him to anyone!Sent on 25/12/2015
Thank you for making our day so special :)
Phil Steingard Studios's reply:Courtney......You had a pretty good group at your wedding. They were so much fun to photograph and everyone had the time of their lives are you party. It was an honour to be part of your wedding and a pleasure to meet both of you. We have one more session to do at home this summer Really looking forward to photograph you one more time......thanks Photophil Steingard

photophil steingard was an absolute pleasure to have as a photographer. He made everyone feel so comfortable and he fit right into our group as if he was part of the party. His photography skills are out of this world. He was very flexible with any photos we wanted to have done and made sure everything was on time and ran smoothly. By far the best photographer anyone could have for their wedding or any type of special occasion. He captures every moment from beginning to end. He is so kind and helpful. Pictures are worth a thousand words but when you see his photos and what he can do it will leave you speechless. 100% and more satisfied with Photophil SteingardSent on 02/11/2015
Phil Steingard Studios's reply:Thanks Kathy It was such a pleasure to be part of your day. I had so much fun with both of you and your group. You entire day was perfect and I wish you both an amazing life together...... Photophil Steingard
