Excellent photographer and videographer, enthusiastic and hard-working

Steven was prompt in getting back to us when we first reached out and immediately we had an enthusiastic phone call with him to discuss what we needed and how we envisaged the day. He and his wife made a wonderful duo in providing photography and videography services and were able to capture the moments in the way that we wanted. They were friendly, flexible, and very hard-working. The final photos and video were everything that we could have hoped for. Highly recommended! Thank you so much for capturing our special day.

We are so pleased we picked Steve to photograph our special day, he is very professional and down to earth and was great in organising our guests for the photos. He was always ready to get a smile or laugh from everybody and even helped my hubby and guests with their buttonholes, which goes above and beyond!

He worked so hard on our big day and went above & beyond to produce such wonderful photos that we will cherish forever. We received our edited photo shoot gallery whilst we were on honeymoon so no having to wait weeks to re-live our memories. We've had so many compliments on the photos up to now. We can't stop looking at them.

Excellent value for money and would not hesitate to recommend.

Truly Amazing!

Hired SB Photography for wedding photos & video.

Steve & Lex are both fantastic people and super professional. Very down to earth and great at entertaining and organising our guests for photos! They fitted in so well and most of the time we didn't even know they were there snapping away.

They both worked so hard on our big day and went above & beyond to produce such wonderful photography and videos that we will cherish forever. We received our edited photo shoot gallery within days of the wedding and the videos very shortly after. There was no waiting weeks to re-live our memories. We've had so many compliments on the photos & videos up to now. We can't stop looking and watching. Videography was a last minute decision that we are SO glad we included.

Excellent value for money and great people that contributed to the high energy vibe on the day. Steve & Lex come highly recommended from us and our families.

We are so glad we chose Steve and his wife to photograph our special day, from the bridal prep to the first dance both Steve and his wife were exceptional, They were both professional in every way possible through the day and made the planned photos fun and easy, we would like to thank them so much for the photos taken as they are fantastic. We would highly recommend them if it’s professional and fun you want as they provided everything we asked for within our budget. My wife wouldn’t of had it any other way they both made her feel at ease and helped calm her nerves pre ceremony. They both made our day very special.

Never have I had such an amazing experience with a photographer

Steven was the most amazing photographer I have ever worked with. I have been to many weddings before and none were as responsive, friendly and flexible as he was. He interacted with the kids so well they wanted him not to leave, and he managed to deal with me - the ultimate fussy bride!
Overall, the photos were amazing, the day was amazing and Steven managed to capture moments that make us choosing him the best choice we could have made! Give him a go at your next event - I guarantee you won't be disappointed!

Fantastic Photos

We had an amazing day and have so many fantastic photo’s to prove it!

I thought your style was highly personal and you both put everyone at ease (including me!). You used Breadsall Priory’s backdrop dramatically and we have some truly unique shots as a result. You made the large group shots fun to be part of, unlike the many bossy wedding photographers we’ve all met! It was great to have Alex taking informal shots throughout the ceremony and reception.
