About Schwarz ProFoto

From the first moment when you knew your special day would actually happen, you had a vision of that day - Schwarz ProFoto can help make that vision a reality.

Located in the heart of the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of New York State, I have photographed virtually every nook and cranny of this region. From an engagement session in front of the spectacular waterfalls in Watkins Glen State Park to an outdoor, afternoon wedding at one of the many lakeside wineries surrounded by vineyards, Schwarz ProFoto and the Finger Lakes Region make a picture perfect, unbeatable combination.

Let me tell you a little more. I photograph weddings. I am not a full service photographer. My focus is on your wedding. Approximately 98% of my photography is weddings. An occasional senior or landscape shoot may come up, but all the rest is all about your wedding photography. I have heard horror stories about full service photographers who take months to get your photos ready. My promise to you is: within 1 week after the wedding day shoot, your photos will be up and on-line, ready for you, your family and your visitors to view.

I like to say that a wedding is “two stories coming together”, therefore I provide two professional photographers for all weddings – I want to ensure that we are capturing both sides of the story. I will normally be with the bride and the other professional photographer will be with the groom - both of us coming together to tell your story! The other photographer is not an assistant, but a true professional photographer.

Why not choose Schwarz ProFoto and the Finger Lakes Region for your destination wedding? I have many options available as far as packages and pricing to fit your wants and needs. Also, why not have Schwarz ProFoto travel with you to your chosen destination. We have photographed weddings in Alexandria Bay, NY, Falmouth, Cape Cod, Turning Stone Casino in Verona, NY and Moorpark Country Club in Moorpark, California.

I personally handle all aspects of the business. You deal directly with me only – I am always just a phone call away. I am open and available when you need me, within reason. I am happy to travel, meet at an agreed-upon location or schedule a meeting at my in-home studio. Weekends often are available.

"Overall, everything with Steve and Lisa was fantastic- from our engagement shoot to our October 14th wedding ceremony at King of Kings Lutheran Church (Liverpool, NY) and reception at Arlington Acres (Lafayette, NY)! They were the best, capturing endless memorable moments and they had some great suggestions for shots we didn't think of. They were also extremely flexible in allowing us to make suggestions when there was something we knew we wanted. I would highly recommend and would book them again in a heartbeat! All of our photos also were ready for us to view before we even got on the plane to come home from our honeymoon! Worth every penny!"

"My husband and I had a phenomenal time with Steve and Lisa at our 10/07 wedding at the Harbor Hotel in Watkins Glen, NY. I met Steve and Lisa at a bridal show last September and I knew right away that they would be a great fit for us. They were excellent about keeping in touch and were very flexible and honest when it came to any requests we had. He and Lisa were both very professional and their years of experience showed brightly. We had an amazing day with great weather and the pictures came out beautifully. Not to mention, we all had a great time doing it. After the wedding, our pictures were posted on the website within days and we received our thumb drive in the mail very shortly thereafter. We could not have made a better choice for our wedding! We are both so grateful for a wonderful experience with Steve and Lisa! "

"I met Steve at a bridal show in Syracuse. When I visited Steve's booth I was really impressed with his work and how friendly the staff was. Steve was nice to chat with and put together a package that would fit our budget. I stepped away to look at reviews, which were all amazing, and to call my husband who came right down with the deposit! The week leading up to our wedding was very stressful so tensions were running high the day of and Steve did an amazing job of keeping everything calm and was so sweet to our families. He is very professional and had cards with our gallery information ready to be handed to our guests and made sure the online gallery was up and running months before our event. Our pictures turned out better than I could have ever imagined! I am not an easy person to photograph but Steve was very patient and kind and was able to capture some truly amazing shots! I highly recommend using Schwarz ProFoto, you definitely will not be disappointed!!! "

"My wife and I met Steve at a wedding show in Syracuse, NY 1 year prior to our September wedding at Glenora. Steve was very easy to work with and made us feel comfortable immediately. We wanted an engagement shoot in the fall but we only a short time left so, Steve adjusted his schedule and accommodated us perfectly. Steve has a very short turn around on his photos, for the engagement shoot as well as the wedding itself, we had a Saturday wedding, and we had the photos on the following Wednesday! On our wedding day, Steve and Lisa made us both feel very comfortable, not stressed at all going into the ceremony. Steve and Lisa were very attentive and captured all of the shots that we wanted to get with family and friends. They stayed all the way through the surprise sparkler sendoff that our parents had at the very end of the night! We LOVE the photos that were taken, a HUGE thank you to Steve and Lisa for giving us photo memories to cherish for the rest of our lives."

"Steve and his assistant Lisa did an amazing job capturing all the special moments of our wedding. They were very attentive and respectful of both my husband and I as well as our guests throughout the whole night. I really appreciated how flawlessly they balanced getting all the shots we knew we wanted (family, bridal party etc.) as well as adding their own creative ideas to the mix. The end result was a truly amazing set of pictures. I also want to just mention how quickly Steve got us our photo's after the shoot. Within a week of our wedding he had edited, uploaded and even put together a mini facebook album for us, which from what I've heard from many of my other married friends is a small miracle in itself (most places make you wait at least 6-12 weeks until your photo's are ready)!"

"My husband and I met Steve (from Schwarz ProFoto) at a bridal expo looking for a photographer for our April wedding at Belhurst Castle. What initially set him apart from the rest of the photographers was the way he made both my husband and I feel comfortable. Trusting someone to capture something as important as memories can be scary. After talking with Steve for the few minutes at expo we knew he was the best. We both felt comfortable to be around him and knew that he would do an amazing job capturing our day. Steve took the time to meet with us after meeting at the bridal expo. He showed us some additional work he had done. He asked us some questions to get a sense of our style and we couldn’t have been more happy with the results. Steve and Lisa captured our day in a way that was so beautiful. The photos were exactly what my husband and I wanted, traditional with a flare of modern."

"I came across Schwarz Profoto at a bridal show in Syracuse, NY. I was immediately drawn to his pictures that featured different angles and elements. I was looking for something that had a modern flair, with a traditional setting. Steve was easy to contact with any questions, and flexible. He made sure he was present for the rehearsal ceremony to become familiar with the church. Steve was honest and offered many suggestions, especially since the weather did not cooperate. He was able to capture beautiful pictures in the rain, as well as at the reception venue. Our wedding was on Saturday, and we received a link of all our photos just a couple days later! We have received many compliments about our pictures from friends and family, and cannot wait to receive our thumb drive and canvas print!"

"I cannot express enough enthusiasm I have for all things “Steve” and Schwarz ProFoto! The Steve and Lisa combo is just the most amazing experience you could have on your wedding day! We had our ceremony and reception at Wagner Winery and Ginny Lee Café in Lodi, NY and the pictures are just Gorgeous!! The precision in choosing shots and finding that “best” shot possible is astounding! We have so many great photos it will be difficult to choose only 90 for our Epaca photo album. Steve was great with responding to all my questions right away, easy to work with every step of the way, and provided great detail in all our conversations. Thank you Steve and Lisa for capturing the beauty, the romance, and all the craziness of our special day, we would not have wanted it to be anyone else!!"

"Steve did a great job with both our engagement and wedding photos. He was excited about our venue and it really showed in his enthusiasm on the day of the wedding. He had good ideas for some great shots for the wedding and took us through the Gorge in Watkins Glen for our engagement pictures and couldn't be happier with his suggestions. Steve was very easy to get a hold of and always got right back to me when I had a question. I have so many great shots from our wedding it is making it hard to choose what I want to use in our album but am excited to order and see how it turns out. We ordered large canvases and I am amazed at how wonderful they turned out. Steve made sure to make them look fantastic and they are proudly dispalyed in our home. Thank you again Steve for the great photos!!"

"We mWe met with only one photographer and knew that Schwarz ProFoto would be our choice for our wedding. Steve and Lisa we right there, giving us ideas as well as listening to what we wanted, getting some absolutely stunning shots, one of which we ordered in canvas. After the ceremony, it started raining. Steve had the staff at the Harbor Hotel grab umbrellas, took us out to the pier, and got some beautiful shots of us in front of the lake, under the umbrellas, with a fog rolling in behind us. It was amazing. We received our photos after the wedding very quickly and were not disappointed at all. We ordered the Epoca album and can't wait to receive it. Overall, we're extremely happy with choosing Schwarz ProFoto. The photos were amazing, the service and communication were amazing, and their passion and love for photography showed. -Joseph and Michele Troiano, married May 16th, 2015, ceremony and reception at the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel, Watkins Glen, NY.

"Schwarz ProFoto was the best choice that we made for our wedding!! Steve and Lisa were beyond attentive and made us feel like we were the priority during this special time!! Steve kept in constant contact over the 16 months prior to our wedding. He went above and beyond by attending our rehearsal and assisted our coordinator to make sure everything was perfect for our ceremony!! The day of the wedding, Steve and Lisa were prompt, professional and very fun to work with. Our day was captured perfectly and our photos were available to view within days of our wedding!! Steve and Lisa truly love what they do and it shows in our breath taking photos!! Steve and Lisa became like family to us, even hugging my father before leaving at the end of our night!! We cannot thank Schwarz ProFoto enough for capturing our special day perfectly!! - Jim & Rachel Alling July 18, 2015- Ceremony at St Peter and Paul's Church in Elmira, NY with reception at Corning Country Club in Corning, NY"

"Steve was very helpful and professional during the entire planning process, on our wedding day and even after! Steve was always available via e-mail or phone to talk through any questions or ideas we had. He went above and beyond at the rehearsal to assist us at the church and familiarize himself with the venue to make sure we got the best pictures on our wedding day. On the day of our wedding Steve and Lisa were prompt, attentive and professional. They took numerous photos that captured every moment of our special day. After the wedding Steve was very quick at making the photos available for all of our friends and family to see. Steve and Lisa are true professionals that are enthusiastic and passionate about what they do and it shows in their work! Thank you Schwarz ProFoto for capturing memories for us to cherish for a lifetime! - Madeleine Southard July 11, 2015 Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel"
