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.
A Little About Me...
Welcome! I've been lucky enough to capture the magic of over 100 weddings in all sorts of situations, from sunny celebrations to rain-soaked romances. I'm always down to travel to capture your special day, no matter where it is!
When I'm not behind the camera, you'll find me attending continuing education workshops throughout the year and editing at my computer with my pet cockatoo, Fergie. I believe in constantly learning and staying ahead of the curve. That way, I can bring fresh and exciting ideas to every shoot.
Did I mention that my work has been featured in some fantastic publications? You might have seen my photos in Style Me Pretty, Artfully Wed, Nature Magazine, Triad Weddings Magazine, O. Henry Magazine, Triangle MOD Society Magazine, or even US Airways Magazine. It's been an incredible journey!
I can't wait to hear all about your upcoming event and create some special images you to treasure for years to come. So go ahead, drop me a line! Let's make some memories together!
