I’m Stephen, a photojournalistic wedding photographer with a thousand weddings documented….and counting (and each one a unique story). Sometimes I feel as much a sociologist as a photographer, because I’ve seen just about every style and culture of wedding you can imagine. I’m lucky to be able to do what I love every day.
I pride myself on being a keen observer of people and weddings; knowing when an emotional, funny, or memorable moment might be coming, so I can have my camera to my eye before the moment happens (and is gone in the blink of an eye). Photojournalistic wedding photography is all about the ability to anticipate moments before they happen….often the best moments at a wedding are unplanned, and only happen for a split second. In wedding photography, timing is everything!
Located in inner SE Portland, when I’m not at weddings, you can find me traveling the world, restoring my Victorian house, collecting Navajo turquoise, hiking in the NW forests, collecting music, doing yoga, or reading at my favorite coffee shop.
I’d love to hear about your wedding story.
