I enjoy working with Steve and I have come to rely on his professional approach and experience when we work together to produce news stories for editorial coverage. He understands my marketing requirements and delivers on brief, time and budget.
— Sian Thomas, Marketing and Communications Officer for Make Happen, Essex Collaborative Outreach Network
We have worked with Steve for a few years and always enjoy working with him. He is very friendly and approachable and after minimal briefing, he will go off and start taking photographs. Steve has a distinctive ‘eye’ and he will pick up a tiny detail or a highlight that makes a brilliant picture and we are always very pleased with the results.

From the first meeting, Steve arranged to discuss the day it was so easy and stress free. It was great to receive the pictures so quickly. We would highly recommend Steve to anyone.

Steve captured some fantastic natural photos at our wedding. We love looking back at Steve’s pictures, he made us feel relaxed and confident, creating some great memories from our day.
— Danielle and Andy Hallam
Steve was incredible. He made us feel very relaxed, in fact most of the time we didn’t know he was there and his pictures are amazing. We literally could not of asked for more!
— Sophie and Clive Earley
Steve is an absolutely amazing wedding photographer. He came and saw us before the event to work out what we were looking for - not just which groups of people we wanted captured, but also the style and range of images we had in mind. On the day Steve was incredibly thorough, taking pictures of the bridal party getting ready and the grooms men at the church before the ceremony. He was unobtrusive during the service yet got some cracking pictures and then took charge afterwards to get everyone organised for photos so it did not take up too much of our special day.

At the reception Steve again took lovely photos, both brilliantly staged shots but also capturing those natural ‘in the moment’ photos of our guests.
The great service did not end there and Steve was so helpful in editing and supplying the photos, and talking us through various options.

We cannot recommend Steve highly enough - he was fantastic.
— Will & Gemma Lodge
We can only give Steve the highest of recommendations after the wonderful job he did for us with our wedding photos.“Steve’s calm and personable manner made getting the photos taken such a lovely part of our special day and we can’t thank him enough for that.“Not only with taking the formal photographs, which were exactly as we requested, but with the reportage ones that he took throughout the day to fully record our most memorable of days in a really unique and artistic way.“You could see how more than 30 years of experience as a news photographer has honed his eye in capturing moments; it’s a special skill that Steve has and one that will enhance any wedding day photo album.“Steve and the photos he took really were a fantastic part of our day and we thank him sincerely for that.

I have known Steve for the best part of 25 years. He is a wonderfully consummate professional and a gentleman in the truest sense of the word.
As a photographer he is an artist and has worked with and supported our school for many years resulting in me asking him if he would do our wedding! He did and it was great!
— Gary Smith, Head of Market Field School
The workshop was inspiring, it had the children captivated from the very first second. Steve delivered the workshop in a way that enabled the children to have a real life experience. The children were heard to be saying ‘wow, I never knew that there were so many sizes of cameras’ and ‘I most defiantly want to do this when I grow up’
