Stephen and Patrice were absolutely amazing!!! They are very professional, funny and witty which makes working with them so much fun:) The photographs that they took were everything we could have asked for. They were so organized that it made taking pictures on our wedding day a breeze. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a photographer for any occasion! Thank you both so very much for capturing our very special day is so many ways! We both loved working with you. - Deryk & Kerri Zinser

Epitome of Perfection!!! My wedding was just a few days ago, and I have already seen 33 pictures (known as teasers) from my wedding. All I can say is...I am in awe of every photo that was shown. The colors are so vivid, and the images are crystal clear. From the first meeting over a year ago, to the actual wedding day, Patrice and Stephen have been the ideal photographers. They are extremely detailed and organized. In addition they very passionate about their work, and truly love what they do. They helped make my day run so smoothly. My husband and I are still commenting on how much we loved our photographers. In fact, everyone in attendance at my wedding expressed how much they admired and enjoyed Stephen and Patrice. I have received several compliments on my choice in photographers. So much that the bestman and groomsman (both whom are engaged) have asked for their information for each of their weddings. Patrice and Stephen of Aaronstadt Studios are terrific wedding photographers! This husband and wife team is experts in customer service. Their knowledge and expertise in photography have given them a competitive edge. They see life through a camera lens, but show you the world in which it was meant to be seen. Their creative, charismatic, and professional demeanor captured our wedding day perfectly. For quality, speed, and accuracy, I highly recommend Aaronstadt Studios for your memorable events! - Allison & Austin

Aaronstadt did an Amazing job! We got married up at Timberline last spring and we loved all our pictures. They give you pointers before your wedding on how to take good pictures, so they can capture all the important events. They were very organized and we highly recommend them. Plus you get a lot for what you pay for and it's high quality! My advice to all the future brides and grooms is to check them out and follow their timeline planner. - Annie & Kris

Although it went a bit over our budget, we splurged and had Patrice and Stephen at Aaronstadt do all our wedding photography. It was worth every penny! We kept them from 2 PM until 10 PM, including a MAX ride to our honeymoon hotel. We got over 600 wonderful photos from the experience, with full rights to the digital originals. For our package price, we also got about 100 engagement photos, a keepsake album of 180 wedding pics, a traditional album of 24 pages of different-sized photos, and two parent albums of 20 photos each. We have ZERO complaints or regrets about the entire experience. Stephen and Patrice are consummate professionals, yet they retain their sense of humor. Stephen stayed with me (the groom) from when I arrived until my unforgettable, private "first look" at the bride. He tied my tie in a double-Windsor knot, which I did not know how to do. I made him do it three times, and he didn't hold it against me. Throughout the pre-wedding planning, Patrice and Stephen offered wise counsel, on everything from recommending the officiant we were delighted to use, to recommending comfortable shoes to wear. While not intrusive, they felt like part of the family by the end of our almost flawless day. They even gave a ride to my father and stepmom when we accidentally left them behind after the reception. Of course, none of this would matter much if the photography was not superb. And it was. With so many couples who feel like they don't remember their wedding day, we do, in large part because of Stephen and Patrice guided us through the day live and in person, and captured the moments we would have missed otherwise. While I could never top our wedding day, I hope we find future opportunities to have Aaronstadt Photography work for us again. Perhaps we can have pet pictures taken, and as they say on their website, "Shoot your best friends." - Alicks & James

Phenomenal photographers!!! Stephen and Patrice are professional and personable. Everyone loved them and still talk about how wonderful they are. They photographed absolutely everything. They took individual pictures of all the couples, families and I think there is a picture of my husband and I with almost every single person who attended our wedding and reception. Since there were two photographers taking pictures, we didn't have to worry about anything being missed. We got prices from several photographers and they are by far the best price. We planned every detail of our wedding and they helped guide us through each phase of the wedding day. We will be using them for all of our photography needs in the future. - Renee & Ryan

My husband and I were married last year, it was everything we could have hoped and dreamed for. I would highly recommend all the vendors we used; Thornewood Castle, Joey Jewell, Bachman’s Flowers and especially Aaronstadt Studios! Stephen and Patrice turned out to be much more than just great photographers. Not only were they professional, but also entertaining and very knowledgeable, providing helpful advice that made the day flow seamlessly. They captured our prefect day giving us magical memories that we can now look back upon through their expert and creative photography! Thank you both so very much! - Callie & Chris

Experienced and there for YOU! Stephen and Patrice have perfected their services over the years and it shows! When you choose Aaronstadt Studio Photography for your wedding you not only getting a pair of fantastic photographers, you get a pair of experienced coordinators that will help the big day go smoothly. They are skilled at respecting your space and blend into the setting. The advice they provided helped keep us relaxed and feeling prepared for each moment. The pictures are stunning and unique. We're having a hard time choosing the "best" out of what feel feel is a collection of over 300 album worthy pictures. Thank you so much for making our day a day our children and family can remember forever. - Shannon and Ben

Aaronstadt Studios is AMAZING! Stephen and Patrice work so great together, and included us in every step of the way. Their organization, attention to detail and prep work leading up to the wedding is outstanding. When the big day arrived, we knew the plan and were able to relax and take their lead. They had fun suggestions for the formal shots and captured our silly candid moments too. We also added a photo booth that they offered to our package for during the reception, our guest had so much fun and are still talking about it. Now that the fun and excitement of the wedding is over we now have many memories captured and a beautiful wedding album that we will treasure for a life time. We found our photographers for life, and plan on having them help us capture all the big events for us that come after marriage. We highly recommend Aaronstadt Studios. - Coleen & Jon Nee

Stephen and Patrice shot our wedding in October at McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse and they were amazing! They are true professionals and go above and beyond on the big day. They are so organized and really know what they are doing, they offer their professional advice during the whole process to help you the bride have the most carefree and amazing day! The end product could not have been better the pictures turned out amazing and got every single shot that I had asked for as well as those that I didn't think to ask for because they have the experience to know what "you" want. It was so much fun to go through the photos and see all the amazing photos we didn't even know were taken. If you ave looking for a wedding photographer you could not go wrong with Stephen and Patrice of aaronstadt photography!. - Bridget & Corey

Stephen and Patrice were very helpful as we worked through planning out our wedding day. They were very professional and captured every moment. Their sense of humor made smiling over and over again very easy and natural. Our photos were available online at 2 wks after the wedding, as promised and we got our photo DVD a few days after they were available online. Faster than we expected! Worth every penny and would recommend them to any friends getting married in the future - Cara & Angus

Stephen and Patrice at Aaronstadt's did an excellent job at our son's June 20th,2009 wedding. From the prewedding meeting with the bride and groom to the arrival of the DVD of the wedding photos in under a week after the wedding; they exceeded our expectations. I was impressed with the tone they set for the actual day. They have such a calm and organized approach while capturing fun photos. Photos that captured the solemness of the occasion as well as the joy and happiness of the wedding ceremony and the reception afterwards. I feel like we really got "double" the service, value, and attention without paying double the cost. - Teresa M. (Mom of Wendy & Ian)

They are an amazing photography company. We highly reccomend them. They took great shots, helped with the timeline of the wedding day and have amazing personalities. Plus they are a great deal, you get two photographers, they meet with you for an hour a few weeks prior to the wedding and help you iron out kinks, they take TONS of photos and got all the shots we wanted and more. We love our photos!!!! Plus they dont make you pay extra to get the rights to your photos. We loved them!!!!!!!! - Amber & Mike

Easily five stars. My wife and I received so many compliments from our family and friends on our photographers. They were well organized, very friendly and personable, non intrusive and very respectful. They provided photos of most if not everyone in attendance and we barely even noticed they were around once the ceremony started, yet they got great close-ups and covered the room nicely since there were two photographers. - Nicole & Richard

There were too many incredible moments that were caught on film to be able to say that we had just one favorite. The �first look� session was pretty special as well as signing the marriage license. They got excellent photos of the venue and the rings and bouquet. There were a couple of great photos of us just prior to eating dinner; I could go on and on. We certainly had a tough time trying to figure out which photos we wanted for our albums and ended up purchasing extras anyhow. I also want to mention that they were very flexible on their schedule and they cooperatively worked with us and the venue staff on the tail-end of the event as there were delays on the special event throughout the reception. - Kathy & Kendrick

I really cannot rave enough about Stephan and Patrice! They have many talents that I can only begin to explain. When we first met with them, we felt completely confident that they would be our number one choice for our wedding day. They made us feel at ease with their level of experience and professional yet social personalities. They have created a system to get you organized long before the wedding day, so that when it comes, you have no worries. They are prompt, kind, creative and professional in every way. The photos captured some incredible moments and I am thankful for them. The value of their packages is fantastic! I really can't say enough to convince you that you would not regret hiring them! Meet with them, and you will see. They made the day that was a blur come into focus by being our extra set of eyes. - Buffee & Eli
