Welcome to my site and thank you for checking out my work. My name is Stephen and I am a Raleigh based photographer, originally from the Greensboro / High Point area. I consider myself blessed that I can wake up and do something I love. I spent a small portion of my life in the corporate world and realized I would rather photograph it than work in it permanently. With the world as my backdrop and all of the people as my cast members, I enjoy hearing each person’s story, whether it’s a bride planning her wedding or a new business owner launching their business for the first time.
My Personal Life
When I’m not behind my lens, you can find me editing with my pet umbrella cockatoo Fergie. I live a few minutes from the downtown area with my partner and we enjoy sampling much of the fine cuisine Raleigh has to offer. Some of my favorite activities include going to the gym, concerts, dancing, wine tasting (red wine and cabernet is my favorite, in case you’re wondering), and I have recently developed a love for fine cheeses (Trader Joe’s has the best selection!). I am a former ASU graduate (Go Mountaineers!). I’ve always had a love for photography and capturing life. I remember spending my birthday money to get rolls of film developed at a very young age and dragging out the neighborhood kids or anyone I could get to be my test subjects. Photography began for me as a hobby in high school and translated as an elective in college. After graduating from college, I started working full-time at a bank and at a photography studio for fun. I was asked to photograph my first wedding on my own for a friend. From there, I realized what incredible passion photography has brought me and so I decided to start my own business.
My Professional Life
I have had the pleasure of photographing over 100 weddings in many different scenarios from rain to shine. I have travelled to New York City for an incredible destination wedding and will travel anywhere worldwide. I attend many continuing education workshops many times a year and constantly believe in re-educating myself. My work has been featured in many publications including Style Me Pretty, Artfully Wed, Nature Magazine, Triad Weddings Magazine, O. Henry Magazine, and US Airways Magazine.
I look forward to hearing about your upcoming event and collaborating with you! Drop me a line!
