"I can’t say how much it meant to me to have Steve be a part of our day.
The pictures are phenomenal and Steve went above and beyond by bringing us the finished disk the night of the wedding.
Steve will be our family photographer for LIFE!
~ Matt Rush
"I can’t really thank Steve enough. His pictures of Mark and I were so beautiful. It was so difficult to have to choose. I will cherish his images forever. Steve has an amazing talent and I am thankful for the opportunity to have been photographed by him for such an important time in my life. I thank Steve a million times over."
~ Heather Gordon
"Steve, Thank you so very much for sharing in our marriage celebration with us on August 2, 2008. Your professionalism & expertise allowed the photo session to be fun & actually add to the day\'s meaningfulness. Thank you for getting to know us so well; your shots show this. We were overwhelmed by your personal involvement in our special day. We were touched by your tears, laughter and smiles and we will treasure your signature on our quilt forever. Thank you for your gorgeous photos and wonderful experience. "
~ Matthew & Katie W.
"Though I have had many years of fine photographic services from Steve Rouch Photography, my most recent experience bears praise and ackowledgement. When I called the studio to inquire about how best to preserve my baby pictures for my heirs, I was offered a service I knew nothing about. Steve Rouch came to my home. He photographed the tiny old black and white pictures in my tattered book, now 80 years old, and recorded my voice as I recalled memories and details which only I would know..He then skillfully created a beautiful CD set to music. This will be a gift to my children and grandchildren this Christmas that they will treasure long after I am gone. Thank you Steve Rouch Photography."
~ M. McGaver
"I want to thank Steve so much for doing the photography at our wedding on October 11, 2008. The pictures were amazing! His professionalism and creativity is profound- the day would not have been the same with another photographer. We will definitely use Steve in the future and recommend him to our friends."
~ Jess and Clint DeForrest
"We loved having you share in our wedding ceremony with us ... everyone present at the wedding was impressed with your professionalism & your respect for the unique sanctity of weddings. We are so happy with the shots you got, and we are so thankful you encouraged us to take most of the photos before the service. What great advice! Katie and I are so excited to see the completed albums. "
~ M W
"I am slowly coming along and have had the opportunity to work with a few great photographers. However, I havent found a single one thats comparable with what you did for my wedding. Its one purchase I will never regret ... I hope someday we can work on the same wedding. I am always looking to get great pictures from a wedding that my flowers are a part of. I would just love to have similar pictures that were taken at my wedding with another bride and her flowers that Ive done! I have yet to find that, your work was so creative. Congratulations on your most recent accomplishment!"
~ Jennifer L. Gibbs, Details by J.Lynn
"We must say we have experienced probably the best customer service in our lives! John and I have been telling everyone we know, what a beautiful job you guys did. It was one of the best experiences we have ever had, and we are so glad we went the extra mile when it came to our wedding photos. Joel was extremely professional and did an outstanding job when it came to our photos. "
~ Heather L.
"Dear Steve: First, I would like to thank you and your wonderful staff for making our daughter\'s wedding photo experience so great. From the bridal portrait session, to the wedding day and all of the help after through the ordering process, your studio has been remarkable and top-of-the-line!
We have had so many comments about how professional and personable you were on the wedding day and have had nothing but \'wows\' from anyone who has seen the work. You not only but the bride to ease, but completely calmed the nerves of her mother as well. All I can say about the pictures and memories is BEAUTIFUL & PERFECT!
Thank you again for your professionalism and artistry. I have and will continue to recommend your work and studio to everyone I can. I only hope that when daughter #2 decides to marry, you are available. "
~ Mary Fors (grateful Mother of the Bride!)
"Hello Steve, Wow! The pictures from the Ausen/Oppelt wedding turned out great! The one of the cake from the stair case is truly amazing. The fun ones as they were coming into the 317 club really captured the feel of club. Yes, I am very interested in some of the pictures for my future web-site. Please let me know how we need to proceed. It was nice to finally meet you in person, as I have heard of you and your reputation as the best photographer in town. I could not agree more! Your ears must have been ringing Saturday night after you left the wedding through Tuesday, as I could not stop telling people about you."
~ Yvette Zeece
"The pictures are brilliant!! This is the first time I have had to look and by far and away, you are a genius. Thank you so much for all that you did for us.
They look better than what I saw. You are the best ,and I appreciate all your hard work and especially your creativity."
~ Matthew S. Jeffers (wedding on 11/4/06)

"Steve and staff- Thank you so much for being a part of our special day. We are so impressed with all the work yourve done for us including our
engagment pictures. We are looking forward to meeting and putting our album together. We couldn\'t have asked for a better photographer!"
~ Michelle and Nick McCloud
"I love the attention to detail that was put forth - shots of rings with program, the head table, flowers, the rings with the detail of my dress as a backdrop....these ended up to be some of my favorite shots and many commented ...thats cool and unique. At first prices seemed high, but when I compared what my friends received (from their photographer at another studio), I realized I got more for my money! I am overall pleased and glad that I found your studio. I only wish I found you sooner as many of my friends are already married and missed out!"
~ Greg and Jaci Van S.
"The Zielinski Wedding Story - Our wedding was the most fantastic and special day we could have ever imagined and Steve did a wonderful job capturing all of the day\'s events ...
Steve and his assist[ants] did a great job working with us and everyone in our wedding party. He was very clear that he was there to do as we wished. He also made a point to share some of the shots as he took them on a TV screen so we could get an idea of what he was taking and give him feedback on the direction to go next. Another thing that amazed both my husband and me was Steve\'s willingness to stay until we felt he had taken all the pictures we wanted. One thing that was a big surprise to us was that Steve also created a candid video of before, during, and after the ceremony. This was very special to us because we didn\'t hire a videographer and there were so many things we had already forgotten that Steve was able to capture on the video. Also, prior to our big day, a plethora of information was shared with us as suggestions to improve the flow and sucess of the day. Steve\'s staff also helped us map out a timeline for picture taking as well as some of the types of pictures we hoped to get. The staff was also very prompt in contacting us to set up a time to come in and view all of our pictures and get the album process rolling.
My husband and I would most definitely recommend Steve Rouch Photography to any one who wants to remember special times in their life whether it\'s a wedding, new baby or graduation. We booked with Steve Rouch Photography after receiving a recommendation from a coworker who had hired him to photograph their wedding 17 years prior. We figured anyone who did a good job 17 years ago must be even better now!"
~ the Zielinski\'s
"Hi Steve, I picked up my album yesterday and the original one looked awesome! Thank you so much to you and all your staff who made this work out in the end for Dan and I. It is much appreciated. Thank you Thank you Thank you! I\'ll also be sending Clair a separate note as she was really good about sticking with this and ensuring we were happy with the final product."
"Steve and Marsha, Thank you so much for sharing our wedding day with us. We hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we enjoyed having you as our guests. Our wedding photos turned out more amazing than we ever could have imagined. We just can’t thank you enough for capturing our day the way that you did. We have really enjoyed working with you guys―you’ve made it very enjoyable! Thank You!"

"Recently you photographed my mother, the 2008 Town and Country President, for the \"Hall of Presidents\", as I call it. From what I recall she told me about the experience, she told you a bit about myself, and my interest in photography. I have always admired the photographs that you display in your window, especially the absolutely gorgeous portrait of my friend Alanna McFall. I would very much enjoy spending some time with you, and talking to you about photography ... It would mean the world to me if I got the chance to work with you because you are such an amazing photographer, and I believe that there is so much you could teach me that a photography class can\'t ... I know that you are a Master Photographer, but I believe that such a title doesn\'t even begin to cover how amazing you are as an artist, and I would really appreciate any time that you would like to spend with me."
~ Anna Bees
"Steve, I thought you should know - I did call yesterday (Saturday) and discussed photos, the date, our plan, etc. with Marsha. She was so incredibly helpful and certainly willing to work out the details with me. She was wonderful. Although our wedding will be very small in comparison to most, I appreciate the way Marsha went above and beyond explaining everything to me and giving me ideas. We look forward even more to our big day in November.
