Hi! I’m Steve.

I’m all about the story. Wedding days are a whirlwind of emotion, laughter, and a little bit of chaos. I document all of these moments because I think it’s what makes every wedding day unique.

I started my photography by studying fine-art images, but I quickly fell in love with photojournalism. My work is a blend of both styles.

I’m fascinated by people and how they interact – with their eyes, their hands, their conversations – and photography gives me the opportunity to observe and document all of it.

I think it’s hard to describe photography with words since words mean different things to different people, so you can view more of my work on my blog.
