eviewed by a happy Bride:

We had such an amazing experience on our wedding photo shoot. Steve was fun and knew exactly what he was doing. He made our day special and caught it all on film. His wedding package is a great deal and he is an all around fantastic photographer. He was professional and worked with us before the wedding to make sure we got every shot we wanted. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer for their wedding day. - Jenelle K. (reviewed in August, 2015)

Reviewed by a Mother/Daughter Duo:
“Having met Steve for the first time the day of our photo shoot we felt as though he was a cherished friend — one we could completely be our silly selves around. My mother no longer hates having her photo taken and that alone is priceless to me! Our Mother Daughter day was a complete success. Next visit will be anniversary photos with my husband. Tremendous gratitude for our breathtaking treasures, Steve!"

What makes us special?

You can have the "ultimate portrait experience!” Steve is able to analyze each human face to find the most flattering angles. Steve has learned to literally “paint with light” with up to 7 lights in his camera room with precise directional capabilities. These lights put a twinkle in the eye, paint each strand of hair, play with highlight & shadow & sculpt images into breathtaking beauty.

Steve Rouch is also an award-winning photographer.
Here's just a couple of awards and honors he has received:

Bride or groom-to-be, Congratulations on your engagement!

Did you know that 9 out of 10 couples were not happy with their wedding photos? Hi! My name is Steve Rouch. I am a wedding and portrait photographer. I know this is a shocking statistic! You can't believe the brides and grooms that come up to me at the weddings I shoot with sad tales about their wedding photographer! There is nothing sadder than the look on their faces! The sad truth is that everyone and their uncle have gotten into wedding photography today with their new digital cameras!

Wouldn't it be nice if all you had to do is buy a fork and suddenly the fork would make you a world class chef! That is the problem facing today's bridal couples and portrait consumers. It is easy to confuse a technological invention with artistry! The camera will NOT make you a photographer!

It takes years to learn how to light and pose and capture natural photojournalistic expressions. The confusing thing about digital is that if the photographer takes 2,000 pictures at each wedding and 4 turn out to be fantastic….they can still come up with impressive web sites and portfolios. What you don't see is all the out takes and bad photos the couple is saddled with.

There are 3 important things to look at when hiring a photographer:

1. The quality of the images combined with the percentage of images that are perfect. A Master photographer will give you a perfect image with every shot!

2. The personality of the photographer. A charming person during your interview may not handle stress well on your wedding day….ask for references about your photographer's reputation!

3. How stable is their business? We get calls from hysterical brides who had their photographer back out or disappear just before their wedding.
We have done 2,000+ weddings and have an iron clad reputation.
We are very reliable!

Look at what we do differently...
We visually "paint"our subjects with light ... note the difference!


Steve also photographs babies, children, high school seniors, professionals, families
and creates fine portraiture

Testimonials from our clients:

Steve was great on the day of the wedding. He was calm and had a great sense of humor. The entire photo session just flowed nicely with no stressful moments.

[They] took time to walk us through the process, and made sure all our questions and concerns were answered. Steve and Marsha are wonderful. They listened to all of our ideas, which in turn we got all the photos
