About this Vendor

Fine Art Photography for Free-Spirited Romantics.

Over the years I've learned from each couple I've photographed what I love most in making pictures. It’s an unbelievably difficult question to answer, but it’s important because I want to be kindred with my couples, ensuring together we will make something amazing. As I look over my work, these ideas keep surfacing: Free-Spirited, Unencumbered Passion, Adventurous Romance. While I'm capturing a photo I find myself constantly peering through these lenses looking for - the way his hand tucks behind her hair as he holds her gaze - the way her hips softly lean into his as they embrace - the way their lips linger, almost touching, just before a kiss. These types of pictures are made possible because we "get" one another. We are of the same ilk, and that makes all the difference.

Laura, you and Jerald were such a pleasure to work with! I love the intimacy of small weddings (all 24 of you!) and how nothing, including gale-force hill country winds, fazed your determined love. Thank you for entrusting me with your photography!!

Pearlsnap Photography & Steven in particular were truly amazing to work with. Steven is creative, friendly, and professional. He has a great ability to corral people together and get them to follow instructions in order to take beautiful photos, all while being totally pleasant... Read More and funny (which is a rare talent that's perfect for a wedding photographer). He came to us by recommendation of another friend whose wedding he photographed, and we liked him so much that I recommended him to my best friend when she got married. I'd absolutely, without a doubt, recommend him to others getting married.

Steven was the perfect photographer for our day. He aligned exactly to our vision of capturing the moments we want to remember forever. We can't stop looking at our pictures and reliving the emotions and wonder of that day. He was incredible to work with and made us feel... Read More comfortable and at ease at all times.

Steven was absolutely incredible! We cannot tell you how much we love both our engagement and wedding photos! We get so many compliments on them! He not only took those amazing photos, but he also really took the time to get to know us and understand what we wanted in our... Read More pictures. His kind, funny, and relaxed demeanor really helped us become comfortable in front of the camera! Steven has an amazing eye for raw aesthetics. His pictures are clean, classy, and artsy without being "out there." He allows you electronic access to your pictures as well, making it a terrific value. We ordered the wedding album (hand-made, high quality, and SO worth the price!) and also got electronic rights to all the pictures from the engagement shoot and wedding which made it very easy to share our photos with family and friends via email and social media. Working with Steven was a breeze. He is really friendly and fun to work with. We really appreciated the way he kept everything relaxed and down-to-earth while still being professional and always attentive to our needs. He covers both ends of the spectrum, both being discreet at the right times and providing much-needed direction and leadership when called for. We cannot speak more highly of Steven and his work. Hiring Steven was some of the best money we ever spent! We recommend him with absolutely no reservations!

My husband and I met Steven back in Summer 2014 about 4 months before our wedding (10/11/14). Steven met with us for over an hour, asking questions to ensure he would be able to meet and exceed our needs and expectations. By the end of our time with him, we knew he was the... Read More perfect person to document our big day! Steven did our engagement photos, my bridal photos, and the actual wedding. Each photo is a beautiful reminder of such a special time in our lives and he way he put the photos together tells the story of everything in such a beautiful way. During the wedding, Steven was somehow everywhere. He captured every important moment, funny moment, emotional moment, and all of those inbetween. If you're looking for someone who is passionate about what they do, you have found him. I wish I could give a 10 star review. Today is mine and my husbands 2 year anniversary and we are looking through the gorgeous album from our wedding all thanks to Steven.

HUSBAND | FATHER | PHOTOGRAPHER First of all, I’m a hugger. (Consider yourself hugged.) I drink way to much coffee, love reading classic spy fiction, listen to vinyl records while preparing dinner with my wife (our daughter playing nearby), and never miss an opportunity to enjoy a fine cigar. I'd love to get to know you better, perhaps over coffee, pints, or both. Feel free to drop me a line, or even give me a call to see when we can make that happen.
