Wedding & Portrait Photographer

Photographing Portraits & Cool Weddings across Canada, the UK & Worldwide

Hi, I’m Steve & I’m a wedding, portrait & music photographer.

I do things a bitย differently.

My wedding photography style is creative, modern and cheese-free!

I want to capture the story of a day when all your favourite people came together in one place to celebrate the fact that you found each other. 90% of what I do is documentary photography. Story-telling but with a creative eye.

But I also love creating portraits that belong on your wall!

I wanna work with couples who like breaking traditions and doing things their wayโ€” because thatโ€™s how it SHOULD be.

My job has meant I’ve witnessed weddings on 5 continents!

I genuinely care about every couple and every wedding. And I focus on what truly matters.

Aside from weddings and portraits, my big passion is music and I spend a lot of my “spare” time shooting band portraits and concerts in Montreal and beyond.

I’ve shot many of the biggest artists in the world, as well as emerging talent. And I always get a buzz out of it.

Read on for more info on my wedding photography, portrait photography, families and my music photography.

Originally from England where I was voted Best Wedding Photographer, my style is modern, creative, relaxed and natural, capturing your day uniquely โ€“ no cliches, just unique images every time. The โ€˜Featured Weddingsโ€ page will give you a good idea of how I shoot so please spend a few minutes browsing through some of my favourite recent weddings.

Iโ€™m also one of the few wedding photographers that will stay throughout your evening reception โ€“ often til the very end โ€“ cos lots of great photo opportunities happen once your guests let their hair down on the dancefloor!

My price includes all your hi-res wedding photos, individually edited, so you can print or share them as you wish. My pricing is super simple so please check out the pricing page for more info. You can also have a look through some โ€œFrequently Asked Questionsโ€ and then see what previous clients have said about me whilst you’re there.

Iโ€™m also an experienced music photographer and have been shooting musicians for over fifteen years now. My photos have been published in Rolling Stone, Professional Photographer, Kerrang!, NME, Rock Sound, Metal Hammer, Practical Photography, and many other magazines.

I’ve been an accredited photographer for the likes of Pearl Jam, U2, Beyonce, The Black Keys, Madonna, Oasis, Metallica and errr… Justin Bieber!

I’ve photographed hundreds of live concerts of all genres. From Slayer to Taylor Swift, The Chemical Brothers to Oasis. I’ve even shot legends like Dolly Parton, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, AC/DC and Amy Winehouse.

One of my favourite things to shoot is band portraits. Creating photographs that live on through album covers and posters is something I never take for granted.

Making a great portrait is all about getting to know a person, making a connection and bringing out their true personality rather than just showing what somebody looks like.

Whether itโ€™s a celebrity, a musician or a local business owner, I aim to show their character as much as help them to look great.

Often it’s those in-between moments that make for the most authentic portraits. My portrait photography is almost always on location, making every session unique to the individual.

I specialize inย authentic, creative, family photography that captures and embraces real life & real moments.

For families, itโ€™s all about capturing the connection between kids and parents in an environment where everyone can relax and enjoy themselves.

My family sessions result in a ton of varied photos, from informal portraits to real moments and authentic memories that will become more precious as the years go by.

No studio lights and white backdrops here!!

I’ve been interviewed by Junebug Weddings and have been a judge for the This Is Reportage Awards. I’ve also been a guest speaker at photography conferences and taught workshops in Canada & London.
