Hello. I'm Steve.
A Manchester-based Wedding Photographer.
I’m not a huge fan of talking about myself, but here goes…
First of all, I’m an optimist. 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.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have my wedding photos published in several leading wedding magazines, including Rock n Roll Bride, Cheshire Bride and Your North West Wedding. I was a finalist at last year’s Event Photography Awards in London, and Zankyou Weddings called me an ‘inspirational documentary photographer’ and ‘one of Manchester’s top wedding photographers’.
I studied Graphic Design and Photography at Salford University in the mid 1990s, and 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 photographed in Rwanda on two occasions for UK-based children’s charity, Chance for Childhood, of whom I’m an avid supporter, donor and fundraiser.
I live in Failsworth, Manchester with my wife, twin boys and two dogs. I’m lucky that 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 enjoy sport, music, art, history and travel. I also appreciate simple things like a well-made cup of tea and sitting down with my head in a book.
