    Couldn't be happier

    Hello there, if you're reading this then you must be curious about hiring STEC to do your photography. I'll make it easy for you... do it! Seriously, I don't have enough words to tell you how incredible it was working with Pete.
    First, let me say he is one of the most welcoming people I've ever met; his wife included (whom my husband and I met briefly). He happily welcomed us into his home and we spent a few hours chatting about ourselves and our plans for our wedding. Pete made us feel very comfortable as he told us about himself and his photography style, to the point where we didn't even consider any other photographer. We knew we wanted him to be a part of our big day.
    Second, this man is incredibly patient. We had some issues happen that caused some problems before the wedding, and we had to do a lot of back-and-forth communicating to make sure we were all on the same page. He was extremely helpful and patient when I was a little slow to respond at times. Not only that, not once did he get annoyed when I had to continually interrupt his work to run to the bathroom as I have Chron's Disease. Most people struggle with understanding the situation, but he was very supportive and considerate when it came to location choices.
    Third, he's a lot of fun to work with. I spent a lot of my time laughing during the photo shoots, which made things much easier. He provided guidance when needed (let's face it, most of us aren't models!), and nothing felt weird or uncomfortable (ladies, he does boudoir shoots ;) and despite how I feel about my body, he made me look damn fine!).
    Fourth, his work is INCREDIBLE. It didn't matter if the photos were touched up or not, they all came out great! Of course I'm a little biased and absolutely loved the ones he did touch up (some of the effects he put on the images were really cool!!), but there weren't any photos I was unhappy with. If you haven't checked out his work yet, take a minute to do so. This is a man who clearly loves his art and it shows!
    Now, if you're worried about price, let me say that he is worth it. I don't mean to say that he's expensive, nor do I mean to say he's cheap. However, I know many people who don't want to spend more than a couple hundred (or less) on photography, and that's completely understandable. My husband and I debated how much we wanted to dedicate towards the photography budget, and decided that this was one cost we wouldn't "cheap out on", and honestly we have no regrets. Again, not saying he's expensive or cheap; the price for what we got was fantastic (especially if you compare some others who charge just as much or more for a fraction of what's included if you sign on with Pete).
    I could probably keep going on and on about Pete and his work, but I think you get the idea by now. Not only is he amazing at what he does, he's also an amazing person. If you're still not convinced, I suggest meeting him. He doesn't pressure you into signing with him, and he even gave us advice on what to look for when searching for a photographer (if we decided we didn't want to hire him). I would 100% recommend him to any couple. He exceeded all my expectations, and I hope that I can work with him again in the future.

    There is only positive to say about Pete - the professionalism as well as quality of photography that he produces. He was able to capture the intimacy of our small wedding as well as handle our 4 children with ease! We are so happy with our photos and are thankful that we chose Stec Photography as we will have these memories that he captured for us for our lifetime. We look forward to having Pete take photos of our family again in the future!!

    Pete made us feel very comfortable from the first meeting, he was very thorough and detailed from start to finish. Not being a fan of having my photo taken he made me feel very comfortable. Pete is the ultimate professional, for the most part he did his thing and I didn't even realize he was there. All of our family and guests commented on the great job he did. ("Some photographers can simply take over and he just blended in"). Our photos were here within a week and all look fabulous!!!! He really captured our special day the way we wanted it.
    Thanks again!!!!!
    Jackie and Brian

    Adrien and I were very impressed with the quality of Stec photography for our wedding this past July. We really enjoyed the artistic style used to capture such a wonderful day for us!
