  • Stephen of BrightWorks Photography is a complete gem. He not only spent untold time getting to know the couple and the venue, he consulted on location and orientation of the wedding arch in order to take maximum advantage of the beautiful afternoon light. He was also a very calming presence on a hectic day. The entire family would have loved him without ever seeing a single photograph of the wedding, but when we did see them, we were blown away. They are not only technically gorgeous--color, focus, framing--they capture the personalities of the couple and the spirit of the day. He completely "got" us. Thank you, Stephen.

  • Working with Steve was a great experience. He is extremely professional, personable and has great insight. As a couple we are not used to being photographed but we absolutely loved the experience and felt both beautiful and handsome in the photographs we received back. Steve allowed us to be ourselves and was able to capture the spirit of our connection so beautifully. We just did a “dry run”/ engagement photos and we cannot wait for our wedding day and to work with him again. His photographic eye is unique and highly skilled to capture you for you while also being able to have that image be a cover of a bridal magazine! We are beyond happy with our choice of asking Steve to be our wedding photographer and to be apart of our special day!

  • Steve is the most talented photographer in the area! He has an incredible eye and will bring out and capture some of the most amazing moments. Steve is very patient, creative, professional, and a blast to be around with his delightful jokes and witty statements. He will go the extra mile and will make you feel comfortable on your day! He is one of the best wedding photographers I have seen and we couldn't be happier with our pictures. Here is our story: My fiancé contacted Steve to inquire about getting our engagement captured forever with photos. Steve started the day for us with a sail on his sail boat for what I thought was a "sail lesson and photo session." Throughout the afternoon of sailing, Steve was able to not only capture some of the most amazing photos, but was also able to teach us how to sail. After a beautiful time out on the water on Steve's top notch sail boat, he asked if we wanted to go out and cruise around the bay and look at the coastline and check out so... Read more

    Thanks so much guys! When I think back to that beautiful Maine day last August, I always remember that pivotal moment when Dave dropped to one knee on the sand, and the look on your face, Megen, as he proposed! Thank you again for trusting me to capture those joyous moments! Can't wait to photgraph your wedding this July :) :)

  • Worried about finding the right photographer to trust for your special day? Look no further! Steve with BrightWorks photography is spectacular! His attention to detail, hard-working attitude, professional composition, adaptable nature, state-of-the-art equipment and position coaching will be sure to catch the most flattering beautiful and loving moments on your special day. He is a joy to work with and will make you feel confident and comfortable in front of his lens. Steve is also very responsive and has a quicker turnaround time on your photos for any brides and grooms on the edge of their seats to get their pictures back(average ~3 weeks) . My wife and I have worked with many other professional photographers for other events, friends weddings, and different shoots. When we give Steve a 5 star review we don’t do it lightly. We are so thrilled with his work and are confident that you will be also! The photos that Steve takes are of the highest quality and will show the love that eve... Read more

    Thanks so much for your kind words, Dave. Your wedding was incredible and I feel privileged to have been chosen as your photographer. I'll never forget yours and Megen's happiness throughout that beautiful, foggy day in Maine!

  • Steve and his team did an outstanding job photographing my daughter's wedding in Kennebunkport. They were everywhere without being intrusive and captured the most beautiful images throughout the day. Steve's attention to detail from the planning stages to post wedding pictures was amazing. He is a perfectionist in his work and his pictures show it. I can't recommend him highly enough and would give him 10 stars if I could. He's that good!

  • Stephen is a talented photographer and a pleasure to work with! He was incredibly helpful in every aspect of the experience from scouting lighting ahead of time to making us feel comfortable on the big day. His calming presence was exactly what we needed. And the photographs are gorgeous!! Thanks, Stephen!

  • The Brightworks team were so fun to work with! They made us feel super special and accommodated our every request. Starting from an engagement (getting to know you) shoot 10 months prior to the wedding, all the way to the photo book delivery (just a few months after our wedding day), we felt like everything we needed was taken care of. One thing we had been stressed out about was taking up too much time with the post wedding photo shoot, and missing out on spending time with family and friends at our cocktail hour. Brightworks came up with a solution. The morning of our wedding they figured out a special photo taking route through our venue's gorgeous open fields, up and down romantic woodland paths, and then straight back up to the cocktail hour - all within the span of 20 minutes! We did a quick rehearsal that morning, taking no more than 30 minutes out of our busy day, and it was such a relief knowing exactly when and where we would be going to take our pictures. Later that afte... Read more

  • Steve Taylor is an excellent photographer. We had the pleasure of working with him when he photographed our summer Maine coast wedding. He was very organized and committed to fulfilling our vision for capturing our special day. A couple of weeks before the wedding we met at our wedding location (my home). He took meticulous notes about specific shots we were looking for, he spent time outside looking at the the wedding site to get a good sense about the light at the time of the ceremony was scheduled so he could capture it perfectly...and he did. On the day of our wedding, he managed to capture wonderful moments without being intrusive. He has been very helpful and patient as we select the pictures we want for our album, so many to choose from! We thoroughly enjoyed working with Steve and we highly recommend him! 5 Stars!

  • Steve did a tremendous job photographing our wedding. We cannot say enough good things about our overall experience from start to finish! Leading up to the Wedding, Steve met with us on a few occasions and was very proactive on reaching out asking questions and helping us finalize our day- of timeline so it would go as smoothly as possible, which it did! Steve visited our ceremony/photo location with and even without us, to get a good idea of what type of pictures we were looking for and a good idea of the lighting for the time our ceremony and photos would be taken at to make sure they were nothing but perfect. His Daughter and Son in Law helped him the day-of so they could juggle being at two places at once and they all did a beautiful job to capture every moment. There was never a time we felt rushed or overwhelmed as they were all so professional and comfortable to be around. When we received the photos, we really felt they captured the entire day and night with such elegance. the ... Read more

  • It was 90 degrees out but that didn't stop the Brightworks team from taking thousands of shots. Careful pre planning resulted in group photos going smoothly. Live shots and candids were fantastic!

  • We had the pleasure of having Steve as our wedding photographer at our Maine island wedding. Steve is precise and organized to every last detail. He studied the light at our church so he knew what he would be working with on our wedding day. He made us feel comfortable during our day and never felt intrusive during special moments. Steve has a creative eye and was able to capture us in moments on the Maine coast that we will always cherish . What I like most about his photos is how natural and effortless they seem. We look at our book of photos often and are so happy with the story they tell from the “getting ready” to the ferryboat sunset. Thank you Steve! (And the rest of the gang)

  • Top reasons why you should hire Steve: -Steve was able to strike a balance of capturing such intimate moments without being intrusive. -He is an EXCELLENT photographer with an eye for the "right shot" -He will ensure that your photo time takes only as long as you would like. For example, we did not want to spend more than an hour or so on photos so that we could enjoy our cocktail hour. He made that happen and guided us along the way so that we could still have all the photos that were important to us. -He is knowledgeable about other wedding details other than photography, which can be helpful when people are always looking to up-sell you. -He will set you up with a high-quality, attractive photo album. -He is professional, attentive, honest and reasonable.

  • From the moment we began to work with Steve until the moment we received our gorgeous wedding album, he was attentive, professional, and easy to work with. Steve's attention to detail was impeccable, without being overwhelming. Leading up to our wedding Steve provided helpful suggestions about various details beyond photography (ie. planning for inclement weather, ceremony, etc.). He was particularly in giving useful advice for dealing with potentially tricky family issues in regard to photos. On our wedding day Steve's team was non-invasive and did an excellent job capturing the spirit of our celebration. We, nor anyone else involved, felt pressured or rushed to do anything or to pose in any manner that wasn't ourselves. The photos that resulted were beautiful. Steve asked us ahead of time what types of shots we'd like from the reception (i.e. posed, candid, etc.). He captured some of the most amazing candid shots of our friends and family dancing and celebrating. He pu... Read more

  • BrightWorks Photography is AMAZING! Steve’s many years of experience really shine through the photographs and the end product is unparalleled. He is professional and works very hard, it was HOT at our wedding. I enjoyed the mixture of candid shots and traditional photography. I often forgot I was being photographed. My wedding album came out better than I could have dreamed. If you are looking for a photographer with wonderful attention to detail who will guide you through the process with ease than Steve will be the perfect addition to your wedding! I without a doubt, highly recommend BrightWorks Photography. Thanks Steve for capturing our special day with such expertise and love!
