Steve and I met in March, 1999 on Match.com. We were married on September 2, 2000 at the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. We have lived in 6 different states - so far - throughout our time together. We have raised a son and daughter. Life for us, like any married couple, has had its ups and downs. Steve promised it would never be dull.
We became a photography team in 2007. I had already been photographing weddings on my own, but someone was missing. I am not complete without Steve. My photography is the same. I love working with my husband. We can be on opposite sides of a ceremony, look at each other and just know what the other will do. Many of our couples love our height difference. I'm 5'1". Steve is 6'4". You will literally get two very different perspectives for the exact same moment.
Steve and I were married before becoming wedding photographers. My aunt was our "photographer". While we do have photos of our wedding, thankfully, they are not what I wish we had. We were naive and thought anyone can push a button and take photos. Boy, were we wrong! I am extremely thankful to have the photos we do, but I am so jealous of our clients' photos. However, I think not having a professional photographer, it has made us hyper aware of what is most important on a wedding day.
During your day, you can expect Steve to stay with the groom and his guys/family. Steve also supplies the random humor and jokes. He is a master of capturing those little moments. The candids. I will stay all day with the bride and her girls/family. I am the liner-upper and poser. I am also the boutonniere pinner. I check for stray hairs and smeared makeup. I am the calmer of nerves. We are there for YOU and YOUR day. Not your mother. Not your mother-in-law. It's all about the two of you and capturing every possible moment of your beginning.
Remember - you will pay quite a bit of money for your flowers, DJ, venue, food, drink, etc. The flowers die. The DJ goes home. The venue will be used by another couple next weekend. The food and drink are consumed. When the day is over, you will have three things remaining: your new spouse, your wedding rings and your photos. Don't skimp on any of those three...

"Michelle and Steve took all my daughter's engagement photos in Disney, and we all loved them. So much that we had them come to NY and do all her wedding photos, they are the most professional and nicest people you'd ever like to meet, they became one of the family. Their work is outstanding. If in the market for a photographer give them a call. I dont think you can make a better choice."
