Wedding photography is about the little moments and the grand events, the details and the emotions, the faces and locations, the elegant portraits and the subtle gestures. Don't underestimate the value and power of good photography; it will provide a lasting record of your day, your details, your friends, family, and you.
We provide wedding photography for Cleveland, Akron, and Northeast Ohio, and are available for travel and destinations.
Intimate weddings, intimate coverage
Not all weddings are the lavish, fairy tale affairs portrayed on bridal blogs and magazines, in fact, most weddings are just as personal and modest as you, and it's the personal and intimate details which require the greatest care and attention when it comes to photography. With hundreds of weddings of every faith, tradition, and sexual orientation to my credit, I offer a wealth of experience with weddings of all sizes and styles. Please contact me to see if your date is available and set up a time to talk. You can see highlights from some of the most recent weddings on the blog.

“Steven–These are fucking amazing. Thank you so much!”Anna and Justin
Steve had great attention to detail and the pictures turned out awesome. His eye for photos is fantastic. We just told him where we wanted to go and he found the photos. Steve is truly an artist not just a photographer. He was referred to us as one of the best photographers in Cleveland, and we are convinced he is.Angela and Kevin
Professional, prompt, creative. Steve did a fantastic job–we were particularly happy with his flexibility and “ninja-like” stealth in photographing our non-traditional ceremony…
His work has a personal feel, he really captured the story of the day and has an eye for great moments.
What I wanted on my wedding day was less stress, and Steven was the guy I didn’t worry about at.all. He showed up on time (a bit early, even), clarified what he needed to, and did his thing. I got my proofs on time with some of the most brilliant shots I could ask for…. Truly, he was a total gem to work with. I’d hire him again in a heartbeat.Priscilla and Colby
…where Steve’s work really shines is in using light and creating beautiful and natural shots. We would highly recommend him to couples who are looking for something more than just posed pictures. –Sarah and Dan
The preview is AMAZING. It’s the last morning of our honeymoon… this was a perfect way to end our time here. We both have tears in our eyes.Jared & Joseph
