"Ten years ago, when planning a wedding for one of our daughters, we first encountered the portfolio of Steve Toepp of Midwest Photographics and it knocked our socks off. Unfortunately, due to our lack of experience, we thought photography was one budget area we could scrimp on and we didn't hire Steve. We've regretted it ever since. This past April brought another wedding and another opportunity. Steve Toepp was the first vendor we called! His pictures are amazing--artistic and non-formulaic, they really tell the true story. He's a real team player and also a lot of fun, but not in an obtrusive way... Steve's services are competitively priced and well worth it. Hire Midwest Photographics for your event. Steve Toepp is the best."

"I have known Steve for years and always consider him a talented person. I watched him work many weddings at Morris Park Country Club and was impressed with his attention to the little things. First, we used Steve to photograph my daughters' senior pictures. One from Saint Mary's and one from St. Joseph's. We were so pleased with his ideas. The photos were fun and beautiful! My daughter and son-in-law hired him to photograph their wedding and the pictures are amazing. They are beautiful, artistic, and funny. Every time I look at them I smile. He was professional and so easy to work with. His prices were reasonable. The work was done in a timely manner and I never had trouble getting him on the phone."

"Steve's work is first rate. The work we've contracted him to do has been used on 2 magazine covers so far - as well as a number of print pieces for the University of Notre Dame.

In addition to stills, he often is able to capture video for us when covering our events—offering the possiblility of multiple-uses from a single session.

Steve has a wonderful eye and a tremendous understanding of every aspect of making his work useful for multiple media. He creates great rapport with his subjects, and he gets them to smile! His post-production skills are excellent, and he has a great understanding of what it takes to format the work product to optimally work for the intended media (web, print, etc.)."

"Steve's work for the University of Notre Dame College of Science has appeared on the cover of industry journals, inside Notre Dame Magazine and in many other print pieces. I contact Steve for our photography and videography projects. He's always quick to respond, and delivers just what we need."

"We are writing this letter to document that Steve Toepp, of Midwest Photographics, worked as our wedding photographer for our July 12, 2003 wedding at the Basilica of ths Sacred Heart. Thanks to Steve and his wonderful staff at Midwest Photographic, we received a breathtaking wedding album with a perfect balance of artistic, candid and formal shots.

Upon immediately meeting Steve we were won over by his enthusiasm for wedding photography. Steve Toepp was recommended to us by a friends who were thrilled with results of his photography. After viewing some of his work, we knew without a doubt he would do a wonderful job as our wedding photographer. Our photographs including the style and artistic quality, without exception, exceeded our expectations. He was extremely professional and so unobtrusive; we sometimes forgot he was there taking photographs.

We would highly recommend Steve Toepp for wedding photography at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. The photographs we received solidified that fact we chose the right photographer for our wedding. Steve and his staff worked to accommodate all of our requests for photographs and locations. He is a highly skilled, atristic and a great individual. We continue to have compliments on our photographs, and we are confident that other brides and grooms will have the same experience."

"Dear Steve,

I would like to thank you for your wonderful photography of our wedding. From the moment my wife and I entered into your studio and saw samples your work, we realized that your keen eye and creative mid set you apart from other photographers. As we reviewed the proofs from our wedding, we saw your talent evident in every shot, and now each of those pictures helps to crystallize the memories of a special moment in our lives. Again, thank you for your fine work."
