Hi, I’m Steve, a documentary wedding photographer based in Stevenage. In essence, I document the story of your day and of what I see in the most sincere way.
Why I Take Photos
I believe that the strongest characteristic of a good photographer is their ability to connect. A good photographer will always connect with their subject result in a photo that connects people to the moment that was captured. These connections are what makes a good photo a great one and are what I live for. You’ll find my enthusiasm is evident in the quality of the photos I take. I also believe that the best photos, the moments you hire me to capture, are created when they’re sincere.
How I Create Stories
I shoot quietly from a distance which allows me to shoot the wedding from the perspective of a guest. I don’t arrange your guests or change your plans. My role in your wedding is as an observer. I wait to capture emotions as they unfold; the only thing you may hear is the shutter of my camera. I don’t follow trends or mimic styles. My framing, lenses, composition, and perspective with my editing styles – these are my artistic values. I use these values to fine-tune and tell your story In my most effective and natural way.

Myself and the team are super friendly, fun, and work like ninjas, so you often won’t realise we’re photographing or filming. We’re incredibly easy to get on with, reliable, and merge ourselves seamlessly into your day.
