I'm Steve, a Manchester based documentary wedding photographer.
I’m an optimist. I prefer to focus on what’s good in the world rather than what’s bad. I’ve traveled our planet and you know what? I really don’t think the world is such a terrible place, I’ve met many more inspirational people than I have bad people; my positive outlook on life is at the very heart of my style of photography.
I’m looking for happiness in my images, your happiness, the happiness of your family and friends. My philosophy is incredibly simple…I capture joyful moments and emotions, my pictures tell a story, your story.
I studied Graphic Design and Photography at Salford University in the mid 1990’s, before that I went to art school at Oldham College. I’ve been commissioned to work overseas, most recently in Hungary where I photographed members of the British Royal Family. I’ve also worked in Rwanda for UK based Children’s Charity, Chance for Childhood, for whom I’m also a donor and fundraiser.
I live in Failsworth, Manchester with my wife and twin boys. I’m lucky, I have a loving family and great friends, that’s all I need, I think everything else in this life is a bonus.
Away from photography I’m a pretty simple guy really – I enjoy sport, music, art, history and travel.
