What can I say about Stefan!? He is amazing!!! I too am a photographer and so can be quite picky when it comes to someone else taking images of me; especially on my wedding day! Stefan exceeded all of my expectations. He is talented beyond belief, super sweet and I couldn't have wished for anyone better to capture all the special moments on my wedding day. The fact that I cried when I saw my first glimpse of the images he captured just proves his talent. If you are looking for a wedding photographer. THIS IS YOUR GUY! Thank you so so much Stefan, I will never be able to thank you enough for the amazing job you did. It means so much to me.

Stefan is fantastic! He got along with people like he knew everyone for years. The photos that he took were natural and not posed. He was able to capture special moments that no one else can see. Made everything fun and not stiff. He was able to get so many beautiful shots in during our session together. Not just of the main party but everyone else. Natural shots of people having fun, special moments of couples hugging, children playing, even the seniors laughing! Angled shots of decorations and just a different perspective of a special day. One word for the whole experience... AWESOME. Thanks Stef for catching the memories of our day!

After comparing several of the top photographers in Calgary, I'm SO glad we went with Stefan. He was so easy to work with, you can tell he loves what he does and his personality made it a great experience. Our guests are still asking us about him and keep saying how much they liked him. He was happy to take all the pictures we asked for but also had lots of great ideas of his own. And our finished pictures were amazing, I still can't believe how well they turned out!!! His style of photography created exactly what I envisioned for our photos. As my new mother in law said "he didn't miss anything". He captured the beauty of the ranch we were at, us in the trees in the fall, and some really cute candid photos of the kids among the many photos we loved. And when you compare the good photographers his prices are awesome. He did our engagement photos, our "elopement" wedding and our delayed reception. I highly recommend choosing Stefan!

This past summer my husband and I got married! We were given a reference to Stefan Makwana Photography to use for our big day! I must say, we are beyond pleased with how the whole experience was; very calm, and relaxed! Our pictures are phenomenal (moved me to tears) and we would recommend Stefan to anyone!

Stefan was such a pleasure to have as our wedding photographer. He met with us prior to hiring him to explain a bit about his style and to gather our hopes for the big day... he was very responsive to communication and delivered much more than we could have hoped for coverage of that day. The pictures aren't just for photo ops that end up on fb or Instagram (which we do have and love-thank you), they're meant to be the raw organic emotions of the day and that's exactly what Stef delivered. Some of the most meaningful pics were the candid ones I didn't even know of until we got them back....oodles of friends and family pics that I would have otherwise missed in the busy day...it truly gave us a glimpse of how the day was experienced by both us and our guests.

We loved having Stefan as our photographer. He is dependable, quick to respond, he listened to our requests and went above and beyond! Even though it was cold outside he had a smile on the whole time. We both loved his creative shots, and his willingness to take us to unique places. He exceeded our expectations and made the day even more enjoyable. Our unconventional wedding was captured amazingly!

Stefan was great to to work with, easy going, laid back and friendly, while still being super efficient. We were so impressed with the photos from our couple's session - they were spectacular and captured us so perfectly well! We highly recommend Stefan and would work with him again in a heartbeat!
