Wedding Testimonial


“Simply put, we lucked out with Steve. Our wedding photos were more artistic, beautiful, and unique than we could have possibly hoped for. We have heard from so many family members, friends, and coworkers tell us that our photos are the best photos they have ever seen. At the risk of sounding narcissistic, we have to agree. So like I said, we really lucked out. Look no further. Steve is a true talent and is the best at what he does.” -  Chau



Warm Colors For That Professional Look


You want your house to sell.  Bring your home to life with real estate photos that capture the mood and lighting of your home, rather than bright faddish photos worked on in Photoshop.  With over 20 years experience as a professional photographer, Steve uses his education at The Corcoran to shoot artistic and creative photos, and he draws upon his training with National Geographic for his expert lighting techniques.



Gourmet Food Photography


When you photograph food it should reflect all the passion your vision used to create it.  You can be a great food photographer, but if you don't understand what is special to create a plate, then you will never design it properly.  Your food photos need to reflect what the meat is meant to look like, how the flavors all work together, and how you want it to look.  As a former chef for 15 years at exclusive high-end restaurants around the world, I understand what it takes from conception to display to present your gourmet dish.  Bring your food to life with my creative compositions and my expert lighting techniques. 



Product Photography


A true professional photographer is paid to light the set just as much as to show your products for sale.  Do not trust a photographer who claims to be a "natural light" specialist.  What separates a true professional photographer from an amateur is understanding lighting.  You want your products to sell!  Steve uses his education from The Corcoran to create artistic poses, and he draws upon his training from National Geographic for expert lighting techniques.



Engagement Sessions


Whether you want to get engagement portraits for a save the date card, or to use as your wedding guest book signing, or whether you want an engagement session to test the waters to see if we are a match, an engagement sessions is a way to see how we work together. We spend several hours capturing your personality to tell your unique story.

— Steve Whysall



Taking pictures is something inherently personal, private, and intimate when looking through the viewfinder of a camera.  There's a unique interaction in the moment when you are looking.  If you think about it, no one else can see what you do.  When you capture a moment in time it makes you excited.  It's an exhilarating feeling!  I can't imagine NOT shooting photography.  Photography is an artistic expression, and a chance to make a difference in what others see.
