Please take a look at these reviews and see why you should hire Steve Lynds Photography today!
Steve Lynds Photography and Steve himself are excellent to work with. The professional service leading up to our event and the easy no hassle handling of our occasion took the stress out of making sure we had captured the memories that can fade so quickly. Steve’s work is beautiful and very well done. I highly recommend working with Steve Lynds Photography for a professional,no stress experience with a tremendously high quality finished product.
-Robin Wandschneider (The Taste of Greenwood Village, Event Organizer)
We were referred to Steve Lynds by a good friend ours and Steve did an excellent job capturing our big day! Being that we live over an hour from Steve, we met with him twice before the wedding to cover details, which he did so well listening to what we wanted to capture. We also had the opportunity to speak with him via the phone and email to ensure that things were going well. Steve was extremely professional before, during, and even after; from getting our photos taken to receiving them and getting an album made.
Both my husband and I would recommend Steve to anyone for any occasion.

Steve is fantastic! He photographed our simple civil wedding at the Denver Courthouse in 2012 and did an outstanding job. As we planned the larger celebration with friends and family, we knew that Steve was the man for the job. He did a great job of keeping us on track and helped us develop our timeline for the big day.
He met with us a couple of times before, to discuss our wishes and gave us guidance and great advice based on his experience. He was very flexible and always professional! Our schedule was disrupted by some issues with our venue but Steve was able to adapt to this unexpected hurdle, helped keep us calm and captured a bunch of amazing photos! After the wedding, he did a great job putting everything together.
We got a couple of DVDs with all of the photos on them and a beautiful book that he put together for us. He also helped us order extra copies for our parents. Thank you Steve Lynds! You Rock!

The Denver “Cupid’s Undie Run” ( a charity run held yearly around the nation to raise money for Children’s Tumor Foundation and find a cure for Neurofibromatosis) hired Steve at a very affordable price to photograph our event. Not only was he on time and extremely professional, the quality of his photos was outstanding. He was very engaged with our runners (all 800 of them!) and I know they loved the experience of having professional photos as much as we did. It can be tricky to capture certain moments of our event and he nailed it. We also love his website that offers you the option to create creative products (photo books, mugs, etc) from the photos he has posted. I would definitely recommend Steve Lynds Photography for your event!
-Amelia Zommer (Cupid’s Undie Run/The Children’s Tumor Foundation Race Director)
Steve is professional, easy to work with, and a good communicator.
He took great photos and handled our project very well.
-Brion Maki (Office Space.com, Regional Director)
We hired Steve to photograph our wedding this May and not only was he wonderful and so easy to work with from start to finish, but our photos are amazing as well!
My (now) husband and I looked at several photographers’ wedding photos but, from the beginning, Steve’s photos stood out. Not only were his photos beautiful, but we were really impressed at how he was able to capture the feeling of the moment and the unique beauty of Colorado.
Steve met with us a few months before the wedding to get an idea of what we would like our photos to look like. He took the time to ask us a lot of relevant questions to make sure that he understood what we wanted. We never once felt rushed, and the meeting made us feel really comfortable with choosing him as we were sure that he really cared about our wedding and how our photos would look.
The day of the wedding brought some unexpected rain, but Steve of course handled it like the pro that he is. He was completely prepared for this, and, thanks to his advice at our meeting, we were as well. He really kept the wedding/photos moving along, even though there were several changes in the schedule due to the weather. His relaxed demeanor really helped to keep everyone (myself included) calm and he reassured us that the pictures would still turn out great.
Boy was he right! We are absolutely THRILLED with our photos! Not only did he get them back to us very quickly, they are absolutely gorgeous, and our friends/family agree! We both feel as though Steve really understood us, and what we wanted. Not only is he great at getting photos of people, but the photos he took outside with the mountains in the background were stunning! The detail of the clouds around the mountain, my veil in the wind, etc. all added to the beauty of the photos without overshadowing my husband and me.
A week after we received the online links for the photos, we received the photo discs. Again, Steve went above and beyond as they were presented in a beautiful keepsake box with some of our favorite wedding photos printed on the box as well as the discs. Sure, he could have just sent us plain discs and we would have happy, but the fact that he took the time, yet again, to make sure that we were more than happy with the final product really shows you how professional and dedicated he is to his photography.
A little more than a week after receiving the discs we received our photo album. And yet again, the quality was top-notch! He had sent us the layout before sending it to printing and all of the photos he chose were the one’s we liked best as well! And to see the photos in print in such a beautiful, high quality presentation that we will have forever is just awesome
If you are considering hiring Steve, please do so as you will not be disappointed! Not only is he a great guy, but nothing he does is “average”. From the photos themselves to the presentations of the photos, everything was amazing!
Thanks again Steve!

Our Foundation has had a pleasure of working with Steve over the past year. He has shot several of our events – everything from a cycling festival to a high-end event at the Denver Art Museum. It is always a pleasure to work with Steve and we have been very happy with the quality of his work. His easy going personality and great photography skills make him a great asset to our organization.
-Anastasia Darwish (American Transplant Foundation, Executive Director)
I have worked with Steve a few times now and each time has been excellent. The quality of the photos is impeccable, and he’s a pleasure to work with. He’s very easy going and I was extremely pleased with the way my professional head shots turned out. I look forward to continuing to work with him.
- Elle Powell
I highly recommend Steve Lynds Photography. We were one of his first baby shoots and his professionalism and patience with our newborn were outstanding. He came graciously into our home and helped set up, made us feel comfortable, and took lots of pictures for us to choose from. It was such a precious time for our new family and he captured it all! We came away with pictures that are amazing and so close to our hearts.
-Shannon & Mike Herzog
We had a reunion event in Estes Park at the YMCA that was attended by 70 family members. Therefore, we wanted to make sure we had a dependable photographer available to take both individual family and group photographs. Steve Lynds did an absolutely incredible job working with us right from the start by making great suggestions on the appropriate time of day, backdrop, poses, and location for the photographs in a place that would also be accessible to our elderly family members.
Steve showed up well in advance of our scheduled time and worked flexibly to find an alternative location should the weather not cooperate (which it did!). He worked very efficiently and also allowed extra time to make certain that all families were satisfied with their poses. He even made time to hold a second photo session with a family that had clouds obstructing their mountain backdrop during their first session.
The quality of the high resolution digital photographs he provided in a wonderfully displayed CD booklet was terrific. I received multiple highly positive comments about the quality of the photographs. We will definitely use him again for any needed group photography.
As the Founder of Mile High Society Project, a non-profit organization that throws monthly fundraising events, I am always looking for great photographers to cover our events. Steve Lynds was one such photographer, but he has been a unique find in more ways than one. Steve doesn’t just volunteer to shoot the event, he shows up on time, prepared, professional and with a fun and easy going attitude. He puts all of our guests at ease, and goes above and beyond to find unique shots that really helps capture the essence of the event. He delivers content in a timely manner and the end product is consistently beautiful, high quality photographs.
After a year and a half of working together, Steve still reaches out to see how he can help again in the future and I know I can always count on him if I’m in a bind. I would definitely recommend Steve’s services and can tell you from personal experience that he is a joy to work with.
-Alison Thomas (Mile High Society Project, Founder)
Steve worked with us, throughout the wedding process, to insure that we were getting exactly what we wanted. Steve was nice enough to keep in constant contact with us to see how things were going and also ask if there were any other shots we had thought of that we wanted to capture. A big one for us, aside from the formal ones of us, our wedding party, our families, and of course the candid photos of the reception, was capturing the traditional Slovak bridal dance during our reception (this is something carried out each generation).
Even after the wedding, Steve contacted us about doing a wedding album, which turned out marvelous. We are highly impressed with his professionalism and attention to detail and we would recommend him for any event anyone has in mind, from birthday parties to weddings.
Steve Lynds was easy to work with and his photos were of very high quality.
I would recommend his services for anyone needing high quality photos.
-Jason McGovern (Denver Deep Dish, Owner)
Steve is a fantastic photographer. He was the second photographer for my wedding in August and I am so happy we had him there. He takes gorgeous photos of everything- from posed bridal shots and family photos to capturing the most emotional moments of the day. He was always professional, never got in the way, and was VERY good at giving instructions or suggesting ideas for shots when he saw a great photo opportunity. He was even good at helping me calm down right before walking down the aisle. As far as his photography style goes, he is very versatile. He can do those beautifully golden outside shots I was hoping for (and definitely got!) and he takes phenomenal landscape photos if you are having an outdoor event and want some nice shots outside. He even got really excited about doing some slow shutter speed sparkler photos at the reception with the other photographer and they turned out to be fantastic. I’m telling you- you can’t go wrong with Steve. The only thing I can’t review is his pricing as he was second shooter for my wedding and came along with a package that I signed with the primary photographer, so I don’t know how much he normally charges. For deliverables, he and the primary photographer had all photos edited and delivered about 3 weeks after the wedding and I have rights to the photos to print as I choose. But again, Steve is the man so I have no doubt that he can give you the photos you want.
Steve Lynds is a professional, quality photographer. He’s come in clutch for ThePier.org countless times on short notice to shoot a show, and was just as timely with his response in providing copies of the photos to use for our content & publications. If you fully enable Steve with his photo work, he will not let you down! For quality, timely professional photos, I’d highly suggest Steve Lynds Photography
-Mike Patti (ThePier.org, Owner)
I’ve been promoting, video taping, writing about and attending concerts for about fifteen years. Organizing a concert can be stressful especially when you are dealing with bands who do not have a manager or other representation who acts as their point of contact. In the same respect, photographers can be unreliable and worse yet take unusable pictures.
When I was living in Denver I was asked by ThePier.org to write a review on a few shows. The photographer for Less Than Jake never showed up so I had to take pictures with my not-so-quality Sony digicam. Mike Patti from The Pier asked me to write a review for Streetlight Manifesto but said there was a really good photographer that would take care of images for the article. It was hard to believe but I brought the Sony just in case.
About an hour prior to the opening band, Steve Lynds gave me a call and asked me if I wanted to meet up for a beer before the show started. We had a couple of PBR tall boys (because that is the official drink of punk rock shows) and got to know one another a little bit. Steve was extremely personable and knew his music better than a lot of photographers, let alone many fans, I have met.
When you’re a photographer in a dark venue that has constantly moving lights that change color to almost every beat it can be difficult to capture the show with pristine images. Steve did just that. Photographers are only allowed to stand up front for the first three songs and he was professional and artistic enough to capture the show with his camera. There is no doubt that Steve is the photographer you want to use for your event. If the images from Streetlight Manifesto are any indication of what he can do, this is a guy to be reckoned with. Five Stars!
-Blake Taylor (Freelance Writer/The Pier.org Concert Reviewer)
Steve is an excellent professional photographer! We got some great shots and a very quick turnaround! Steve is also very friendly and flexible for events. We will definitely use him again!
-Trent Campbell (Tnertle)
I only got to work with Steve once, but I have been trying to get him out to another show ever since. Great photos, the kind you see on the walls at big venues. He is easy to work with and not afraid to push through the crowd to get the perfect shot. Also, I’m tired of these “photographers” who shoot for the first three minutes of a show and then stop shooting and go hang out and chat. Steve is not one of those people. I think he should quit his day job.
-Taylor Kaufman (CollieRAD)
Steve was a fantastic photographer to work with. He was focused, detail-oriented and very professional. Not to mention the photos from the wedding look really great. We worked seamlessly together in coordinating the various wedding events and everything went flawlessly. He was very easy to work with. I would definitely recommend Steve to anyone looking for a photographer and I look forward to working with him in the future. Thanks, Steve!
-Michael Warkentin (Dancin’ Shoes DJ & Lighting, Owner and DJ )
I enjoyed working with Steve very much. Steve’s photographs turned out well and his passion for photography made the photo shoot very fun! Steve allowed me to chose my own location and communicated well with me. I would definitely recommend Steve because he will capture amazing photos!
Steve did the photography for a fundraising event I helped to organize, and he was simply the best. His photos were great (even in challenging lighting!), and he captured every important moment of the evening. He comes highly recommended.
