If you care about your wedding photos.. you've found your photographer
A wedding photographer who concentrates on capturing your wedding day not directing it.
One of the most sort after wedding photographers in the UK
Hi Im Stephen, I'm a Essex based Wedding photographer with 2 decades of amazing reviews and photographer of over a thousand weddings.
Being a wedding photographer based in Essex, not far from Stansted airport, my local coverage area extends to wedding photography in Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire. London and due to my close proximity to the Motorway network, wedding photography into Kent and beyond.
Fortunately, and the main reason we moved here from London, the airport gives me even greater range, regularly shooting wedding both in Scotland, Cornwall and well as Destination wedding photography in Europe
I want you to look back on your wedding photography and say "I remember how we felt when we did that" I want you to look at your photos and feel the nervousness and the happiness, I want to produce images that you can smell the hairspray in, taste the cake...
What I don't want when you see your photos is for you to say "I remember when the wedding photographer made us do that." In my mind your photographs should reflect your love on the day, not a wedding photographers vision of how they think it should look. Its our job to find the light, the angles and shots without disturbing the flow of your day.
That said, not all wedding photographers have the background to understand that some wedding photography requires a little direction to get the best from it, so don't worry, when its needed, as a wedding photographer I know how to use it, and still achieve stunning wedding photography that never looks forced.
I specialise in a mix of relaxed unposed wedding photography mixed with the traditional and a few high end portraits of you both to complete the perfect wedding photography package. A long award winning career as a wedding photographer blended with a background in high-end portrait photography and traditional wedding photography ensures you are in safe hands.
UK and Europe wide coverage.

It really does set the mood with having a good positive atmosphere with your photographer and we honestly couldn't speak highly enough of them both and we know they have captured our day perfectly. Thank you so much again for being part of our special day all our love the bodens x"
" Professionalism, Quality,
Steve very recently photographed our wedding. He is an absolutely lovely guy, funny, friendly and so easy to get along with.
He knew exactly what we wanted. On the day he was very professional and approachable, but totally himself, so very funny. I would recommend Steve very highly, in fact when the time comes, my adult kids want him to do their weddings too. Thank you Steve.."
