  • I could on forever about how amazing Defining Studios was for our wedding!! Leading up to the event, their staff was so helpful negotiating packages so we had the best fit for us and the unique schedule of our day! Communication was amazing- all our questions answered right away and beyond kind. We felt we were in the best hands going into our wedding day, but Heather and Roger still managed to blow us away!! They went to our venue and church ahead of time to scope out and make sure we had the best pictures, truly going above and beyond. They had our families and bridal party laughing and enjoying every second of the formal pictures, and went the extra mile to capture us as a couple and make us feel our best. Big plus, Heather kept me from slouching all day! They knew when to hold our hands when we weren’t sure what to do, and when to just capture the best candids. Even after the wedding they kept us up to date on the status of our pictures and sent us the most beautiful keepsake usb... Read more

  • I’d give them ten stars if I could. Roger and his team were phenomenal to work with from start to finish. They took the time to get to know us as a couple, checked in with us proactively, and went above and beyond on our wedding day to create content that exceeded my wildest expectations. Defining Studios handles our save the dates, engagement shoot, wedding photography and wedding videography- I’d recommend any of these services in a heartbeat.

  • Roger kept our crazy day fun and organized! He is so nice to work with and even surprised us with a sparkler picture at the end of the night. Being a 2020 bride was very hard but I was able to count on Roger and his team to capture the day we worked so hard for. Our pictures are beautiful and the coming soon trailer is amazing. The team was there for all the special moments without being intrusive. I am so happy I had defining studios for our photography and videography.

  • Working with Roger was a phenomenal experience and he made the wedding day a breeze. I'd highly recommend him to anyone. Defining Studios also is willing to work with limited budgets to make things work which was a huge plus.

  • How does one articulate an experience when there are simply no words?! Booking Defining Studios came as a no brainer on my end because my twin sister had booked Roger, Heather, and their marvelous crew just a few years earlier. Convincing my now husband was actually an easy fete as he quickly knew why I was so adamant in booking them! Although I kind of knew what to expect and the outcome to be received, being the bride was a completely different, heartwarming, and incredible experience. I am truly grateful to have had such an talented team capture my special day. Starting from the days leading up to the big day, I was in frequent communication with Yeny, planning the logistical details. She was so helpful, thorough, and helped me stay on task when it came to preparing the various documents the team would need for the big day (i.e. list of portraits to be taken, types of shots desired). Yeny was so sweet, answered every question I had with ease, and always was courteous of my t... Read more

  • I was in my brother’s wedding and got to spend the day with Roger and his team. There are so many words I could use to describe what the team provided but to summarize it, it was energetic, professional and nothing but exceptional quality. Again, you will not be disappointed!

  • Defining Studios, more specifically Heather and Roger, helped create the happiest day I've ever experienced. My wife and I felt so at ease and in caring hands the entire day. The most incredible thing about them, aside from their insanely professional and beautiful photos, is they are very complimentary of each other. They worked together to make sure we had the kinds of pictures that would help us remember this day in all its perfection. More importantly, however, they knew when to put the cameras down and remind us to take a few moments to soak it all in. Choosing Defining Studios should be a decision that's made without any hesitation!

  • I loved working with Roger! He did our engagement shoot plus wedding day and he stayed till we were ready to leave! He fulfilled all of our photo requests and made sure that we got a photo with each table! He was also great with my young nephews and they loved him! I actually had some guests come up to me and ask for his information and of course I gave it to them! He is amazing! I also used their videographer which it didn't even seem like they were there at some points they didn't get in the way but I knew they were around because they were very attentive! Heather whom I only communicated with online was always prompt to respond to my many questions! Defining Studios is amazing and I'd give them more than 5 stars if I could!!

  • Roger is a truly amazing photographer, not just becuase he takes amazing photos, but the way in which he engages people. He has an uncanny way of remember people's names. He made taking group pictures actually fun by using humor and his vibrant personality to engage us all. Everyone at my wedding commented on how amazing the photographer was that day. His whole team is organized and responsive. I would hands down reccomend Defining Studios for all your photography needs. We are so happy with our photos and the whole experience with Roger as our photographer!

  • What can I say except Roger and the whole Defining Studios team exceeded expectations! Planning for a wedding while 600+ miles away is difficult enough, not to mention trying to find and coordinate with vendors. But Roger made it so easy! He was extremely flexible when it came to Skype calls and reassured me the whole way through. The day of was an absolute dream, everything worked out perfectly, he was punctual, friendly, and super funny. My wedding party and guests alike LOVED him and his team and still talk about him to this day. Two of my close friends, who were in the wedding party, are now planning their own weddings. I didn't even have to recommend Defining Studios because they were already sold! Thank you so much for making our day so special!

  • Roger was an absolute blast to work with and just from our "sneak peak" photos, we are completely blown away by his stellar work! We thoroughly enjoyed working with him and the team. Christine took beautiful engagement photos of us in the fall that we were able to use for our save the dates, wedding website and more. The weather wasn't the best for the day we were originally planning on taking the photos, yet Roger stayed calm and helped guide us into make the best decision and the photos came out perfect! The day of the wedding Christine and Roger arrived for our getting ready photos. I felt at ease working with her and so did my mom and bridesmaids! From the hotel, to the church, a photo stop in between and then the reception - Roger was a blast to work with. He was so fun, made us feel 100% comfortable with him, and captured the most beautiful photos of our day. He even surprised us with a lock with our initials on it for the bridge! All of our guests keep raving about how ... Read more

  • We hired Defining Studios to photograph our engagement in October and our wedding in May. My husband and I are incredibly happy with the beautiful Engagement and Wedding Photos! We had the pleasure of working with Roger, Christine, and Nick. All of them were professional and enthusiastic. They helped preserve our memories of the best day of our lives. Couldn't be happier with the services they provided!

    Thank you so much for the kind review! It was absolutely our pleasure to capture all of the magical moments on that special day.

  • From the moment we met Roger at an Open House for the Pond House Cafe we knew we had to have him photograph our wedding! Roger is very personable and did a great job getting most if not all of the shots I wanted at the wedding (despite me running behind schedule due to transportation). He also went above and beyond at our engagement session and listened to all of my crazy ideas and captured all the moments I wanted perfectly. Two days after our wedding we had over 150 preview photos from the day and we couldn’t have been more excited to see them while away on our honeymoon. We cannot wait to see the rest of the photos in a few weeks. We also recently got our sneak peak video and couldn’t be happier. Defining studios captured so many great memories from our wedding day and we can’t thank them enough. Don’t look any further when looking to book a photographer or videographer, they are simply the best! You won’t regret it!

  • I ca not say enough good things about Roger. Our wedding was on 6/24/2018. It feels like it was yesterday that we were getting ready for the "Big Day". Everything happened so fast. I am so glad that Roger took all of those nice pictures . we love sitting down and looking at our pictures once a while.
