I reside in Carlow and travel is not an issue. I shoot in a friendly, professional, and positive manner, people say I blend right in with the crowd, but your needs and requests are important to me, so at the end of the day I am there for you. 

My aim as a wedding photographer is to craft and create the beautiful images that you wish for, through a documentary style along with formal, informal and candid shots. I edit in a bright fresh manner, I want the photos to have a long life and not be looked at in time to come looking out of date.

For further information and for what I can offer, please feel free to contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you.

I can’t speak highly enough of Steven, he was brilliant from the minute I made contact with him. He was so enthusiastic and was able to give me great advice from the off on our photography. He was also super organised and had made contact with our various venues within a day or so of our first conversation. On the day itself, he was great, capturing natural photos of our families and putting us all at ease. We are delighted with our photos and he is incredible value for money. I would highly recommend Steven for any important event.

Well where to start with Stephen,from the very beginning he was brilliant very quick at responding and so friendly. The day of the wedding from meeting until the end he was amazing. He made us feel so at ease getting our pictures taken we had some laughs also he was so friendly and professional from start to finish. The few pictures I got for a quick peek had me in tears so I'm so looking forward to seeing the rest of them I've no doubt they will be amazing. Thank you again so so much for everything. Serena&Rob.

Steven was very easy to deal with and very accommodating with our requests. We were hardly aware that he was even there on the day as he was so discreet. We got to interact with him after the ceremony and he guided us easily through all the family and couple photographs with best lighting and backdrops in mind. He made it very easy for us all and was very professional and nice to deal with. Our photos were superb, with a goregeous selection of colour and black and white photos. He also took some amazing posed and natural photographs. We particularly loved the natural ones. He took lots of photos of us when we weren't looking (and presumably deleted the bad ones, as the ones he sent us were all really beautiful). We couldn't be happier to have had Steven take our wedding photographs. We have so many gorgeous photos to chose from for our wedding frames. We highly recommend Steven and we feel that we got great value for money too.

Steven was a Godsend to us as we lost our original photographer to Covid days before our wedding. From the moment we first spoke we were confident he was a great match, he was calm, professional and just genuinely such an easy going guy. I personally didn't want really posed photos and he was just there in the background on the day, making us feel at ease. Highly recommend and absolutely delighted with his service from start to finish

What can we say about Steven and the service he provides? There really aren’t enough words to express how absolutely over the moon we are - but we will try our best. My new hubby and I were in an awful predicament four days before our wedding as our wedding photographer, who had been booked for 4 years, messaged to say they had covid. Needless to say, we were panicking and trying to reach out to different family members for some assistance. A friend of mine directed me to the ‘Help! I’m getting married’ Facebook page and I posted our situation. I also used their suppliers page and I found Steven on there and messaged, not seeing he had also messaged me on the Facebook post too! We got to chatting, Steven is so responsive and really took an interest in my groom and I’s wedding vision. Which was relaxed but with some important family shots. Steven told us about his experience and directed us to his instagram and FB pages. Straight away we knew we wanted him by just how personal his pictures are. His framing on individuals is spot on and he captures his subjects smile so naturally that we knew we would all be at ease with him around. We spoke at length on the phone discussing what we as a couple would like, about how we met and got engaged and then Steven told us a bit more about himself. We organised the time for the day of the wedding and we looked forward to meeting him. The morning of the wedding, Steven walked into the kitchen of my grandmothers house - full of women! He was just as we expected, friendly, approachable and professional. He began by taking some lovely natural action shots of me getting my make up done. Not only that, he included everyone and that was exactly what we wanted. A wedding is a family affair after all! Steven then set up some lovely shots of the wedding accessories and parts of the garden that were sentimental for myself. It’s was all so well coordinated and he never seemed phased by my asking for certain shots. Steven also was keen to capture the emotion of day and everyone was comfortable to show it in-front of him - including my dad. Steven then travelled to the ceremony venue to meet my husband and as soon as Ian and I had a moment to ourselves, it was a very sweet “you look beautiful” followed by an “oh my goodness! We were so lucky to find Steven! He’s amazing!”. That was the opinion all around for the rest of the day too! What really made the day for us having Steven as our photographer was, the fact he made sure to pull us away from our guests for some pictures of just Ian and I. It didn’t feel like a chore or a process we had to go through for the sake of it. But a chance for us as newly weds to have some time, to chat, laugh, look at our beautiful venue and just capture US. Steven stayed with us until the Father/Daughter dance and once he left everyone was asking for him. Everyone mentioned how lovely, relaxed, friendly and professional he is. We have had our shots back and all the above is definitely reflected! We don’t know which to pick to print as they are all so carefully captured and really tell the story of the day! 10/10 for Steven. Would 100% recommend and we wish him every success in his photography!

Hannah and Ian, thank you for such a kind review, you guys deserved the day you got and I was delighted to be a part of it, and that’s what it was, a feeling of a part of the day and not just a service. I was received well by everyone a few had requests and everyone followed my requests. It was a pleasure being your photographer and I wish you well on your journey as a newly married couple.
