Latest Photos of 2014 …there’s still more to come for ’14 :)

It’s been a crazy year of weddings for me.  I’m honestly not sure how many weddings I planned this year, but it’s a lot.  Maybe somewhere between 150 and 200.  Whose counting anyway?  At most of these weddings, I say about 99% of them, I am also the photographer and […]

“POST-PRODUCTION HELL” – After Your Wedding, The Work Just Begins For Me.

The second most common question that I am asked is,”Steve, how long will our photos take to finish?”  And my answer usually ranges from: a few hours, a few days, three weeks, twelve weeks, sometimes up to three to four months, it really depends….  Usually, under normal circumstances, meaning photos […]

Steven Says: THE KNOT SCAM:  Don’t buy into their “advertising opportunities”

THE KNOT SCAM: Don’t buy into their “advertising opportunities”

The Knot ripped me off, and it wasn’t pretty. In December of 2013 I was approached by The Knot, via an anonymous phone call, to advertise on their website.  The Knot offered me an overkill of web advertising opportunities, most of which was quickly read off a script, and most […]

Movie Review: Interstellar….What the world? (no spoilers)

Interstellar is a science fiction space movie that stars Matthew Mcconaughey, that guy from the Lincoln car commercials; and Ann Hathaway, that girl who looks rather strange and doesn’t have a car commercial yet.   Before Gravity 2….I mean Interstellar, was released this weekend, critics had begun singing praises, some […]

SUMMER ’14! Wedding Photos…well not all, just a taste

This summer was crazier than normal.  I believe I planned and photographed over 100 weddings over the course of the entire summer!   I did 30-plus weddings just in the month of July.  Talk about burnout.   I don’t think I’m ever doing that again.  If I do, I don’t […]

Guardians of the Galaxy, A MUST SEE! (No Spoilers)

I saw Guardians of the Galaxy twice, and both times, it didn’t disappoint.  The second time was much better though, because I ate five hot dogs.  The entire movie is all around awesome, balancing perfectly the right amount of comedy, action, light drama, and talking trees.  The movie stars Chris Pratt […]

Movie Review: Lucy – What the…Really? What a dumb….. (No Spoilers)

I had the opportunity to attend an early screening of Lucy yesterday (July 23, 2014), for free, and I still feel as though I got ripped off.  I didn’t have any special connections to get into the screening.  I just printed out a ticket, showed up to the theater early […]

Wedding Photography With A Cheap Camera

There’s no doubt that I am a fan of snapshot photography.  Most of the pictures you see on my site are taken with a very high performance snapshot camera, the Canon G1x, and a high powered Nikon Flash.   But I’ve always wondered if I could get great shots with […]
