Rave Reviews

Anyone can feel like a model with Steve. He finds your personality and captures it in a picture. He’s so creative that our ideas kept getting more inventive. I loved working with Steve. His photography is so sharp and impressive.






I first worked with Steve Chastain at Expressions Photography in January of this year. Steve is a phenomenal photographer and I highly recommend him. He listens and respects your ideas and works with you to achieve them. He understands the value of a team and brings a ton of energy and enthusiasm to every shoot. He is a great posing coach and is able to clearly communicate a variety of poses that will assist you in creating a great photo. Working with a talented, professional, and creative photographer easily yields a comfortable environment that will produce an amazing final product. His studio is fully furnished with professional equipment, numerous props, and a variety of different backgrounds. I receive a ton of compliments on my photos that I shot with Steve. One friend in particular is a great fan of Steve’s work because of how well he showcases the model in each photo.

 I have no hesitations in recommending Expressions Photography to anyone who desires a memorable portrait session.








Over the years, I have always hated having my photo taken. Tantrums when I was younger,arguing when I hit my preteen years, an even skipping my senior photos, it was never an enjoyable experience. Then I met Steve on my first day at UT of Knoxville. His fresh ideas and amazing personality instantly put me at ease, and when he mentioned his need for models, I was instantly on board. When I arrived to the shoot, my stomach was full of butterflies, and thinking to myself, “What am I doing? I hate having my photo taken. I never look good in photos.” Just two minutes with Steve, and my nervousness was gone. He made the shoot fun and actually asked for my input, my ideas, and together we had so much fun creating beautiful photos. When we were done, I was so excited to see the finished product, an Steve definitely didn’t disappoint. When he finished his artistic magic and sent me my photos, I was speechless! In every photo, I looked beautiful,and the “true me” shone through. It was not a set of typical photos, with me sitting stiff and awkward. They were a set that I am so proud of!  Steve’s work allowed me to finally see that I am beautiful. I had always has a problem seeing my beauty, no matter how many compliments I’ve received; I never believed it until I worked with Steve and for that I will always be so grateful.All in all, I will always recommend Steve. His fresh, artistic ideas and easy going yet professional ways will instantly put even the most photo skittish person at ease. To me, he is a true photo magician and he will always be my photographer from now on. For every special moment, I want captured in the future, I know he will be there every step of the way because I know, no matter what, the quality of his photos will never waiver! He is an amazing photographer and I am proud to call him mine!!




Steve, your photography is beautiful and you have such a creative eye. I’m glad we were able to have you there to capture all of our wedding memories! Thank you so much!
