I am an international award winning reportage / documentary Hertfordshire and London wedding photographer who works throughout Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex, Hampshire, Surrey and beyond.

As a documentary wedding photographer my aim is to capture your day both honestly and artistically. I capture what happens rather than directing what happens and am therefore a passive observer who blends in with your wedding party. This allows you to enjoy your day with your guests relax and be yourselves which is what your wedding day should be about. I am happy to take family portraits which would normally take only 10-20 minutes giving you more time with your guests having fun. I must stress that my style is totally based upon observation. I have no photographer's ego or interest in being in the limelight or running the day or becoming your new best friend or an extra grooms man or master of ceremonies etc etc. etc... The more I am unnoticed the better and more meaningful the images will be. As an astute guest said to me at a recent wedding I wish I could wear a cloak of invisibility. After all a wedding should be a wedding and look like a wedding in the photographs not a photographic shoot.

As you will notice from my gallery images I do take bride and groom portraits. If you wish around 10 to 20 minutes would be set aside for this during the day when we would go off and take these. I try to keep this relaxed and informal and try to keep these images as real looking as possible without lots of contorted posing. It is really about capturing the two of you alone together sharing a romantic moment. This is essentially a portrait session within your day and please let me stress the whole day is not a portrait session.

Capturing beautiful poignant and fun moments is what motivates me. For me it is about capturing "the moments between the moments" which tell the true story. I like to think that I am your eyes on your wedding day capturing the fleeting moments that you may miss.

I rarely use flash at a wedding preferring to use the available light whenever possible. Not using flash helps me to remain unobtrusive. It also helps me to capture the ambience of the venue. After all a candle lit dinner should look like a candle lit dinner in the photographs. Available light gives the image subtle highlights and shadows which are hard to achieve with flash even used in bounce mode. I use fast prime lenses to capture the available light.

Please take a little time to look at my wedding photography gallery and if you would like to discuss the possibility of me photographing your wedding please contact me to discuss your big day and how I may be able to help.

Steve managed to capture everything from start up to finish, how he managed to be in so many places seemingly at one time is beyond us. We were able to relive our special day thanks to Steve's handiwork. He is a truly talented photographer, honest, fair and resonable. We were lucky to find him. Thank you Rachael & Corey Thwaites Addington Palace Wedding.

Steve, thank you so much for our amazing photos. We knew from your wedding photography portfolio they would be good but we were totally blown away by the beautiful moments you captured so perfectly. Our guests commemted on how refreshing it was to have such a relaxed non intrusive wedding photographer who allowed them to enjoy the day as much as we did. They also loved the photos!!. thank you so much. We'd recommend you (and have done) without reservations. Thanks Pete & Nat Eaves
