Phil was awesome... He walked me and my husband through every step of the day! We took a lot of pictures and we don't do well with pictures, but he got us through and the results were so worth it! The best part by far was the trash the dress... He picked us up and showed us around and brought us to the most beautiful beach, we had a blast! He's made our day so great and left us with so many beautiful memories!Sent on 10/08/2015
Phil Steingard Studios's reply:Jaclyn......Yes we did take lots of photos and like you said.....So worth it in the end. We had a great day, LOVE photographing the Rock the Dress session. Photos like that are so different then you would get on a wedding day. Also pretty cool getting to see the real part of that country outside the resort. Thanks for allowing us to be part of your life and wedding. I hope for many years of a great marriage together..... All the best Photophil Steingard

Amazing work done by Phil, such a great guy to work with, very friendly and he was the life of the party. Really knew how to get everyone involved and making sure everyone was having a great time. Such a great artist in photography. I have some of the most beautiful pictures to show proof of it. Outstanding and would recommend Phil to anyone that needs a photograph. He is very organized and knows how to keep his bride calm and making sure everything goes smoothly.Sent on 25/09/2015
Phil Steingard Studios's reply:Manon......you were very easy to work with. All brides are always worried on how the photos will go. But the entire wedding and party were perfect. I try and get to know everyone right from the start. This way its so much easier to help get the party started. lt didn't take much to do that....lol. Being organized and having a really good wedding schedule is the key to making the day flow perfectly Then the wedding day is stress free.......After that it becomes the best wedding ever!!! All the best Photophil

Phil was amazing! My husband and I loved working with him. He was an amazing photographer who without a doubt enhanced our wedding day. He stayed with us throughout the entire day and into the eventing. His enthusiastic personality certainly was a great addition to our reception. Our guests were also very pleased with him.Sent on 20/08/2015
After the wedding day we did a "Rock The Dress" session in Punta Cana. Phil took us to a local beach as well as through the town where we have the most amazing pictures. We would highly recommend "PhotoPhil" to anyone looking for a a professional photographer with a down to earth attitude.
Phil Steingard Studios's reply:Charlene......thanks for sharing and also allowing me to be part of everything!!!! The entire wedding was so much fun. Your guests had a blast the entire day. LOVED your party many of your guests probably said the next day....BEST PARTY EVER!!!! I started taking couples off the resort the past year or so for Rock the Dress and those are definitely the best photos Its so different to see the locals and the areas where they live. Capturing photos in places like that is sooooo cool. So thanks for being so much fun and we all had a day to remember..... Photophil Steingard
Jill Graham · Married on 09/02/2015
Phil was a great help with our whole day! We had a Punta Cana wedding at the The Majestic Colonial, he called us before the wedding to give us a play by play on what to expect, which was nice because the planning can get confusing. Our photos turned out great and there were a ton, Phil spends a lot of time with you! We had Phil stay for the reception and got some great shots of all our guests partying. We also did TTD, which were some of my favourite ones :). He seems to know everyone and everything that is going on at the resort which is also very handy!Sent on 03/09/2015
Phil Steingard Studios's reply:Jill......I do know everyone at the Majestic resort. I have coming here for the past 8 years.....lol You picked the perfect hotel for your wedding I think everyone had the time of their lives. I hope you did too... :) I do try and set up a good schedule for the day This keep things running smooth and on time. Also helps to make a more relaxing day. Now you can enjoy every minute of your wedding day. Thanks again for allowing us to be part of such a special day......it was an honour to be part of it. Photophil Steingard
Photophil provided GREAT energy to our group and took some amazing photos! He was with us right until the end of the day- it was great to have some professional photos of the reception! I would highly recommend him.Sent on 22/09/2015

I booked Phil a year in advance for my January 2015 wedding. Booking him was easy and smooth. He was very responsive to emails and communicative. Phil worked with me two weeks before the wedding to solidify the timing and flow of the day. Unfortunately, based off his suggestions, the timing of some of the events had to be moved (and coordinated with the resort), which wa stressfulSent on 14/08/2015
Once all the details were confirmed and modified, things could not have gone smoother. I loved working with Phil.. Not only did Phil help me with the flow of the day, but he also acted as a day of coordinator. A "photobooth" dance floor was included in our wedding package and everyone LOVED it! The pictures are hysterical and awesome.
Do yourself a favor, if you decide to go with another wedding photographer for whatever reason, please, please book Phil for your Trash the Dress / Rock the Frock photo shoot. These are my absolute favorite pictures! What's cool about Phil is that he is super flexible. If he sees the shot, you'll change course and get the shot. The impromptu last pictures we took that day are some of my favorites.
He is not the cheapest photographer in Punta Cana, BUT his services are totally reasonable for what you are getting. I could have spent less on photography, but the pictures were a priority for me. (And actually, I think he is pretty middle of the road, price-wise. I got quotes for photogs that were double his price, and included less). You get what you pay for, and I'm glad we splurged on PhotoPhil.
All in all, I'd book him again in a heartbeat. If you go with Phil, you won't be disappointed (and you could very well have a reception that's more fun!),

Phil was absolutely fantastic. He not only did more then I could ever ask for with my picture, he helped me organize my timing for the whole wedding day. I highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed I promise :)Sent on 11/08/2015
Phil Steingard Studios's reply:Candace......we did have fun. The wedding was fantastic and great party... Waoooo I agree on the planning part, by doing so this allows us the time to get all of our photos in. Makes it stress free and more enjoyable for everyone. I had so much fun meeting everyone but very much so, the two of you. I wish you many years of happiness together. Thanks for allowing me to part of it. Photophil Steingard

Photo Phil was great to work with! He was fast to get back to is us in setting up the photo sessions. He made the session fun and enjoyable. The pictures turned out amazing. All of our friends and family were completely impressed and I heard time after time that they were the best wedding pictures they have ever seen. Highly recommended photographer! You will not be disappointed!!!!Sent on 08/08/2015
Phil Steingard Studios's reply:Thanks Dawn......the photos were definitely fun doing. Taking the time to plan that makes it so. I am a quick photographer, can fire away faster then I can talk. Thats pretty quick since I am CANADIAN......LOL But having that time also allows you to be more creative and get photos that you wouldn't have gotten. Thanks for being a joy to work with...... all the best Photophil Steingard

Phil Steingard takes absolutely breath taking photos!Sent on 08/08/2015
He is energetic and knows how to have fun. He was right on point and did an amazing job! He was very organized and had good knowledge of the itinerary and venue. (Hard Rock Punta Cana)
If you want creative and timeless shots I would highly reccomend using this photographer.
Choose Phil and you will NOT have to worry about a thing!
My Husband and I were very pleased with our experience and photos :)

Phil Steingard Studios's reply:Coral both you and Zach were awesome to work with. We did spend a lot of time planning things but that allowed us to get everything in with out any stress. The day was perfect. Everyone enjoyed your day. Hard Rock is a huge resort so having every minute possible helped to get all those amazing photos. Loved your beach photos, some of my favourite ones ever taken down south. The party was a blast. I brought all my photo booth props and everyone got on the dance floor wearing them. I don't think you could have a better party!!!!! Even our videographer Florian laughed all night long as well. :) :) thanks again for allowing us to be part of your wedding You both are such an amazing couple Photophil Steingard
