Creating graduation portraits is my favorite type of photography.
 
I have done over 6,000 portraits in my career and have learned a lot along the way. I have studied with Ansel Adams and many of the great American photographic Masters of the day.

 I broke ranks with all other photographers many years ago to create a far superior senior portrait session.

 Here is how.

1.    I show each senior their picture on a large monitor DURING the session. Every 10 minutes you can see yourself and if you see things we need to fix we do it on the spot! It is so helpful for clients to clearly see themselves so we can adjust your posture, your hair, your smile and countless other things that can ruin a portrait if not captured perfectly! NO ONE else does this in town.
2.    I have the most unique ideas you have NEVER seen! I dream up my own shots. Your pictures won't look like anyone else's shots because I do not copy anyone else. I am not showing those ideas in this email because photographers are copy cats. If you want unique along with traditional then I am your guy.
3.    My prices are the same as the ones I had 20 years ago only this time around we include a lot more than back then. Affordable!
4.    I have $30,000 worth of lighting, props and backdrops to create almost any image concept we can dream up together.
5.    I show your images on a 6' movie screen at the end so you can clearly see the images and won't get unhappy surprises going from small proofs to big pictures like other photographers do.
6.    I am located now in Woodbury! The studio is on a 50 acre park with a lake on our property! We LOVE going outside and have great rustic backgrounds to offer you.
7.    I am a very playful person. I love to spend time with each senior
to  get to know you. I offer a 3 hour session we have time to chat and thoughtfully create 100-200 amazing images. No rush and no worries!
 
We LOVE it when the family and pets come too. Feel free to join us in the session and we will do some family portraits too! Props and personal items that tell your story are welcomed. Let's create art for the ages! AVOID the disappointment of selfies and pictures friends take. Why not have an incredible session especially when it is so affordable!
 
Right now we are having a special that is amazing.

3 hour session
Indoor/outdoor
Unlimited clothing changes

There is nothing like working with a Master Photographer. Less than 1% of the photographers in the world achieve this goal. It is your assurance of a perfect job. Your session will be painless, fun and fast. You walk out with the disk the day of the session. As a Master Photographer I have been trained to make folks look younger, thinner and tanner than ever before. You won't believe your eyes! One unique way you make sure I did the right job is to view my large monitor as the session progresses so you can see the shots as they are taken. If they are not to your liking we will do a quick reshoot and get it perfect! No other photographer in the area uses this monitor so you have no idea how you look until it is too late a week later!

Do not let “selfies” or snap shots 
define your reputation and expertise!
 
I have $30,000 worth of backdrops, props and other gear to create almost any look you may desire. I have a gorgeous studio on a 50 acre park with a lake in back if you want outdoor images. For big groups we will come to your location with our portable studio and get your whole staff looking professional for your web site and print ads.

No one would ever go to a job interview with T shirt and cut offs on. It is so tempting to do selfies or have a friend shoot something for linkedin and your web site. Below see the difference. The old saying goes "just because you can does not mean you should". I offer quick,painless and cost effective solutions for the head shot that will land you that next job, that next promotion or the next adventure in your life.

The portrait comparison above is of my friend Dennis Nietz. We have worked together for a number of years on projects. I totally recommend Dennis Nietz as a great business coach. He has a lot of many great ideas. I can not say enough about Dennis. He is a great guy and wonderful to work with as a business coach! Steve Rouch              

(Give Dennis a call at 651-775-5908)

 "The easiest thing to say is that Steve is a gifted photographer, and human being. What strikes me most about him, however, is how he sees the ideas and how he captures its images. And that's what sets him apart… he doesn't just capture ‘the shot,’ he captures ‘the experience’."  He has set the benchmark by which to measure all other professional photographers."

Thank you for your kind word Seless! It is so much fun photographing your family.
 
Once again Steve Rouch did a fantastic job! We are back for our 3rd time and brought 4 more family members with us. He somehow even got one member of the party who NEVER smiles in picture to get some awesome ear to ear smiles! We'll definitely be back again next year!

 Our claim to fame.....
We create sessions that are far better than any other studio. Here is how.....
1.    Our sessions are 3 hours long so there is no rush. We can be thoughtful about what we are creating and I can fulfill your every wish!
2.    We use a 16x20 inch monitor to show you your images every five minutes DURING the shoot. That way you do not have to settle for
the pictures taken. We can reshoot to perfection on the spot!
3.    We show the images on a 6'x5'screen so you can clearly see them and can avoid ordering the wrong pictures.
4.    We do not edit. That way you can see everything and have everything.
5.    We always have a joyous time. Fun can create great portraits!
6.    We offer amazing variety. We have $30,000 worth of props and backdrops to create almost any kind of look.
 


Watch your family grow.

 Experts suggest that at least every five years your family should have another portrait session. Things change and people certainly do. We have clients that come in once a year with their child from the just born stage all the way through high school. The looks on clients faces is amazing when they show their collections from past shoots that help watch their kids grow. 


Did you know that a portrait investment is.....
 
The cost of a can of pop a day for a year    
  ~or~
The cost of one fast food meal once a week for a year    
  ~or~
The cost of a tank of gas once a month for a year
 
It is affordable! We work with clients on affordability!


Why boudoir?

 I have been a lover of fine art since I was a kid. I could not help but notice at museums that the female form is everywhere. It is in paintings, ceramics, sculptures and tapestries. We offer tasteful
creations of you that do not "show" anything but celebrate the beautiful creature that you are!


Why pets portraits?


The saddest thing I have ever experienced is the loss of our cats Smokey, Shadow and Rosie. There is nothing like the unconditional love of a pet. Yes a camera can capture somewhat the likeness of your pet. We use amazing amounts of light to create portraits that show every whisker and strand of fur on your pets face. As a great friend of mine says...."it is better to be glad you did instead
 of wishing that you had".
 
Thank You!
From,
Steve Rouch Photography

I have been doing a lot of head shots these days because clients are finally realizing that a selfie or a friend with a camera is not good enough to represent your "brand" as an executive. No one would ever show up for a job interview in T shirt and cut offs. Why would a person represent themselves with a snap shot for all the world to see?

Having the right collection of head shots can mean getting that job, that promotion, getting into that internship or college.


My head shots are quick, painless, fun and affordable. I use a monitor so you can see the shots and if they are not to your liking you are not "stuck" with bad pictures. We can go back and shoot more and actually shoot to perfection! Please give me a call and let me help you look younger, thinner and tanner than ever before.

Your image is your brand. It is amazing looking at LinkedIn headshots and seeing selfies and poorly done images. Would anyone ever show up to an important interview
in torn up old clothes? Then why would someone have very important head shots representing them that are less than totally professional?

I have been very busy doing executive head shots and head shots for all kinds of working folks. I am having companies hire me to do head shots for their entire set of employees. Its been exciting!

I recommend a great head shot. I have just about any look you can imagine to make your presentation lead you to limitless success!

I have a simple message. Your entire wedding day, with all the investment and planning, rests on the shoulders of your wedding photographer. The day after your wedding everything and everyone will disappear. All you have left are your pictures.
If you are anything like me these days I trust friends a lot more than some “expert”. Every day, the news if filled with scandals and horror stories that make trusting anyone I do not know harder and harder to do.
In the case of wedding photography I can’t say enough about hiring an expert even if you do not know them initially as a friend. Wedding photography is a complicated art form that requires lots of different kinds of skills. Imagine having the sadness of seeing your wedding images and not liking them one bit! Your day is gone and your images do not transport you back to that magic day. How awful!
My name is Steve Rouch. I have done over 2,000 weddings in my career. If you ask around lots of folks you know have used me and had a great experience and love their pictures. The glory days of wedding packages costing up to $7,000 is over. I remember them well. Clients gladly paid me that much and were happy to do so.
I realize we are in a new economy. That is why I am offering my same great work for a fraction of the investment. Today you can hire me to do your wedding for just $999 and YOU keep the disk so you can make endless copies! You would never owe me another dime.
I constantly hear stories as I shoot weddings from past brides I did not work with about how sad there are about terrible wedding images they received from their photographer. When they see me in action they see the difference.
I would love to help you if you are interested. Feel free to give me a call or shoot me an email.
I would truly love to thrill you with my skills. It is a joy for me to show the wedding day to a couple in a truly unique fashion.
Sincerely
Steve Rouch            Master of photography            651-644-2184               choicephoto.com

Steve did an absolutely amazing job with our daughter senior pictures. We had seen his work through his website and took advantage of a groupon to save a little $$. When we met him , we knew instantly he was our guy! His energy was awesome and he had so many creative shots, which we loved. From the very beginning, he answered all of our questions and was so patient with us. We had a blast doing all different pictures with him…he is really creative and comes up with things you would never think of. We really cannot thank Steve enough for everything that day. We will definitely go back and recommend his service

Steve was compassionate about getting to know my son's hobbies, interest's and a bit of family history prior to taking his seniors pictures. Steve made us feel very comfortable which set the scene for an awesome photo shoot with many beautiful smiles and unique poses to chose from. Thank you so much!

Steve did our engagement and wedding photos ten years ago and we absolutely loved them! Fast forward ten years and 2 kids which he just did another amazing job of capturing tonight. We cannot say enough fantastic things about his artistry, his personal demeanor and the amazing experience. The best testimony I can give is that when he showed us a slide show of all our photos tonight, I had tears running down my face. He just did a beautiful job! We will be going back again and I guarantee we won't wait 10 years!

Steve was very nice, friendly, professional and patient! We had a 6 month old, and he was great with her and us. He took some wonderful shots of our baby, us as a family, and even some head shots we could use professionally. I would definitely recommend him!

We were so pleased with our daughter's senior pictures from 2011 that we returned today to have Steve photograph our son. Steve put our camera-shy senior at ease and produced some really great shots. No need for dramatic venues and props. Just great, classic pictures which will stand the test of time. Steve even photographed my son with his sister to give us some terrific sibling photos. In addition to being a talented photographer Steve is a truly nice man. He's kind and patient. We have photos I'll cherish.

He took amazing photos of my parents and daughter. There's no substitute for experience - he truly has an artist's eye. We will definitely return to him. He had an array of flexible packages with very reasonable prices. So pleased!!
