Best wedding vendor decision we made! Steve was the photographer for our engagement shoot and May 2010 wedding. Hiring Steve as our wedding photographer was by far the best decision I made in my wedding planning process. I blog stalked Steve for months before hiring (and almost everyday thereafter) and was excited to see that Steve was constantly improving on his already amazing talent. He not only creates amazingly beautiful and unique photos but is professional, reliable and approachable. Steve was always prompt, responsive to my suggestions and questions, and I never worried that he would fail to catch a critical moment. I have received countless compliments on our wedding and engagement photos. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Steve in the future or recommend him to anyone in need of a photographer.

We loved Steve’s work so much we had to drag him out to Cape Cod for our wedding. Steve is a picture-taking machine and captured all the important moments of our wedding (plus all our crazy hijinks) in such a natural and beautiful way that even the portrait-loving parents were sold on his photojournalistic style. Steve followed us *tirelessly* through the rehearsal dinner on Friday evening and the entire wedding day (from getting ready in the morning to the very end of the reception). And you won’t mind him following you everywhere – it’s like having one of your best buddies taking pictures at your wedding. He’ll put you at ease in front of the camera.

We would recommend Steve Koo to anyone!! I cannot say enough good things about Steve Koo and his photography. My husband and I would recommend him to anyone! He was easy and fun to work with and took great photos both for our engagement shoot (for which he flew out to San Francisco!) and our wedding in Chicago. He has an awesome eye for color and composition, and he captured the spirit and emotion of little moments. There were no cheesy, posey shots except for those family photos that we wanted to take. His style is photojournalistic, and he does amazing black and white shots as well as color. Steve is also just a great person, and when you’re spending hours with someone on your wedding day, that matters a lot.

For our wedding we flew Steve out to Kauai. He was super easy to work with to get this coordinated & always prompt and professional throughout the entire process. On the day of the wedding, Steve was all over the place, capturing every moment, but not in an intrusive way at all. I get very self-conscious when I am being photographed and Steve was able to put me, and everyone, at ease. Our photos are fantastic. Our friends & family, and most importantly, my husband and I, are thrilled with the end result. The wedding photos that Steve took really convey the spirit of our wedding day. We were so thankful to have Steve in Hawaii with us!

Steve was absolutely wonderful! He was everything we were looking for in photgrapher- professional, creative, talented, hard worker etc. He photographed my destination wedding and really captured both the beautiful natural backdrop as well as everyones personalities so perfectly! Everyone I send the pictures to has the same response- WOW!! I would recommend Steve 1000 times over!

Steve was absolutely amazing to work with. He had worked with us previously to do an engagement shoot prior to our wedding. Steve is everything you want out of a wedding photographer – he is professional, calm, friendly, and most importantly takes amazing photos. During our engagement shoot Steve did a great job directing us through the shoot and found great locations for us to take pictures. As for our wedding day Steve was like a photography ninja; everywhere and nowhere. Steve was around me throughout the entire day capturing all of the wedding day events, however, I rarely even noticed he was there, which is exactly what you want from a wedding photographer! Steve also has a wonderfully calming presence throughout all the wedding day fiasco. I highly recommend Steve – he was absolutely wonderful!

Steve has a great eye for all the little things that make wedding photography memorable. We used him not only for our wedding day, but an engagement session as well. He has a keen eye for capturing some of the little details you’ll remember long after the day ends, as well as capturing candid moments (especially on the dance floor)! You could go to a wedding photo company and get one of many on their roster, but with Steve you know what you’re getting. He blogs constantly his work in progress, so you have a much better feel for what you might see before your wedding. He’s calm and casual, but he’s a true professional that I’d definitely recommend.

Making clients happy with amazing photos is my goal, so it means the world to me when someone takes time to write me a thank-you note. Some people expect that hiring a professional photographer is a one-time experience, but I love that many of my clients invite me to celebrate their anniversaries, new arrivals, and other momentous occasions!
