We received these great unsolicited 5-star reviews from the Citysearch website:

My daughter recently had her senior pictures taken by Steve Rouch, and he did an amazing job! He took pictures of our family during the session as well, and even took individual pictures of me and each of my three children. My daughter had asked to be photographed at a specific location, so after he was done with the in studio and outdoor pictures near his studio, he went with us to the location she had her heart set on. He took over 300 pictures, and they are all incredible! He made this day so much fun and so special for all of us, that we would definitely recommend him to others. As if that's not enough - his prices are fantastic! I would highly recommend him to others, and we will definitely look to him again in the future! Thank you so much Steve!" ~by nmatthews15 at Citysearch 9/15/10

"We used Steve for our daughter's senior pictures and he far exceeded our expectations. We had no referrals, just a card in the mail offering his services for senior protraits. My daughter thought she would leave the studio with 50 pictures of which only 10 would be "good ones". We left the studio with over 200 shots (on CD) and we love 98% of them! Steve truly has a talent with the camera. He has created beautiful artwork of our daughter." ~by janrik at Citysearch 9/09/10

"Never thought we would have the opportunity to be able to work with Steve again. But we did! He did our wedding in 1992 and 17 years to the date we were back having our oldest daughters graduation pictures taken. I was not sure what to expect with this being our first, but it was wonderful! We ended up with over 200 photos, and have to start to narrow it down. It will be a very difficult decision, but one I am looking foward to! We elected to purchase the CD and now have a lifetime to enjoy the photos, and to share with family. We have one more to go, and now I know not to worry - Steve handled it wonderful! So happy we were able to work with him again!" by nancieaw at Citysearch 8/28/10

And here's more testimonials we have received directly from our clients.
One mom writes: "Steve, we would like to thank you for providing us with such a wonderful experience. Danez was really excited about his [portrait] session and was floating on Cloud 9. You made the whole experience AWESOME!!! Your entire staff was wonderful and made sure that we were comfortable and content during our wait. Thank you for providing such great customer service and we will definitely be referring more people to your studio. Danez loved the fact that you let him be him!"

Another one says: "Thank you for the great senior pictures of my son, Peter. He is not one for much 'flash and pizazz,' and you felt that from the very beginning of the shoot. Peter was so pleased with both the sitting and the final product ... as was I! We'll be back!" ~Jan K.

You can have the "ultimate portrait experience”!! Read on ...

Master Photographer Steve Rouch has traveled across the United States for the last 35 years studying the lost art of “classical fine art portraiture” with internationally renowned artists.

With the understanding of this art form, 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 and shadow and sculpt images into breathtaking beauty.

Virtually all of Steve’s clients share the human concern of “not being photogenic” or “not liking past pictures”. All humans share this feeling including Steve himself! He has been trained to help people look younger, slimmer and tanner than they ever dreamed. With the use of a sizeable monitor, Steve works with each client to find the perfect outfit, background, soft flattering lighting, body language and expression to create a “work of art”.

Part of the magic of this experience is that when Steve was little he decided Peter Pan was right… It is NOT fun to grow up!!!… you will find him to be a playful and fun person to work with. He is the biggest 5 year old in town and he will invite the 5 year old in you “out to play” during the session.
(Not literally, but he loves to have this experience be charged with laughter and happiness….don’t we all look out best when we feel this way?)

Of course you can bring loved ones to either be in the session with you or observe from another room thru a closed circuit TV. You will be amazed to see how Steve builds sets and backgrounds that perfectly blend with each clothing change so that each image created ends up looking like an Old Masters Painting! Steve loves to go outside as well to rustic settings that feature ivy covered walls, fences and trees….all just behind his studio.

A few days after your session is done you will be able to enjoy, view and choose your images with a fine artist as your presenter. Highlights of your session will be presented to you in a musical show with a “Ken Burns”
documentary feeling to the presentation! Each image will then be presented to you in approximately 30”x40” size on a huge screen in our “mini theatre”.
The magic is just beginning! Imagine having a fine artist at your disposal to sit with you as you go thru your session and transform images to your liking or sit back and marvel at their suggestions….!

“I would like to see that color image turned to sepia brown….could you crop it here just a little?….now could we make it lighter?…..can you remove that blemish?….my crows feet?” Watch as the image transforms to your most exacting specifications! What you see is what you will be getting so you will be assured of the ultimate in satisfaction!

Fine art portraiture is not expensive….its priceless and ironically the LEAST expensive investment you will ever make! Divide how long you will have the portrait into what your investment is and it works out to pennies a day!
(We honestly are known for our affordability….we do that by design because we love what we do and always want to be serving clients.)
