Well it wasn't geeky, but there were superhero comics, Harry Potter memorabilia, and bridesmaids with lightsabers, these were my kind of people. It was such a great time documenting your wedding day Jenna and Landon. You are real and fun. Thank you for letting me be a part.

Simmons 2015 http://www.photosteven.com/blog/2015/8/simmons After a great morning running with the Birmingham Track Club, I got to reunite with these cats. It's always easier to photograph pretty people, and it was an awesome morning for the first day of August. These guys cracked me up and I'm super happy with the resulting images. Thanks guys!

I know this one is a little on the dark side, but I absolutely love it!

Red Headed Kids http://www.photosteven.com/blog/2014/12/red-headed-kids After shooting photos for the St. Jude Marathon in Memphis this weekend, I got to go shoot some family photos for old friends. I was greatly outnumbered by red headed individuals, and in spite of what you seem to think Stephanie, I do have tons of fun photographing your awesome crazy kids. It was great to you guys.

Jayme & John http://www.photosteven.com/blog/2013/11/jayme-john So once again I've been neglecting the blog. I always end up leaving it and then swearing to myself that I'll post after every shoot and... well we know what happens then. Even so, I'm back again. Yesterday I was able to shoot an engagement session for my friend John and his beautiful bride to be Jayme. We had fun.. or I had fun and they had fun laughing at me. Either way it was a good time, and we got some great shots for them.

First session with the D600 for me after renting it a few times. I looove the full frame and it was worth it for sure. Here's a peek of what we got.

Hardys! http://www.photosteven.com/blog/2012/10/hardys Had a hard time getting started, aka I didn't show up on time. Still feel so bad about that guys. Ended up going smooth and getting some great portraits. Can't wait to meet the newest member of the family in a few months.

Lacey & Ben http://www.photosteven.com/blog/2012/9/lacey-ben This couple had a amazingtastic wedding out west with just a few people around, and then had a reception back east for the rest of their family and friends that couldn't make it across the country. It was beautiful. On the lake at sunset. Here is a bit of what it looked like. Thanks Lacey and Ben for having me there.

1 Years! http://www.photosteven.com/blog/2012/8/1-years Makes me feel old to think that my buddy Jace is a little past the 1 year mark now. He's walking and everything! He's already a master of tweaking guitar tone. He's secretly been setting all my pedal tones for months. Here's a few that we got today.

Family! http://www.photosteven.com/blog/2012/7/family I had never met with this family before the shoot, but quick friends were made. They all posed so easy and seemed comfortable interacting during the shoot. Great smiles all around! Thanks for making my job easy guys.

The Proposal http://www.photosteven.com/blog/2012/7/proposal When Daniel asked me to take photos of his elaborate proposal, a few things flash through my mind. The biggest being, "I hope she says yes or this could get awkward". Being that he's a cool guy, I knew she would, especially after I saw the crazy setup work this guy did. Huge hand made signs, old doors, flower arrangements, violinist in a field.

Thanks for including me in such a personal moment. Good luck with the wedding planning!

The Mitchells http://www.photosteven.com/blog/2011/12/it-seems-to-be-time-for-newborns-lately It seems to be the time for newborns lately. I really enjoyed working with this family. From the time I walked in the door they were like friends that I'd just never met before. They have a beautiful little girl and we had a great session for her first photoshoot.

Here's a preview so you won't have to wait to see anything ;)

Josh & Courtney (+1) http://www.photosteven.com/blog/2011/12/josh-courtney-1 I've known these two for a quite a while, and can't wait to meet the next member of their family. Friday I was so sick I couldn't move and didn't think that I'd be able to make it to their portrait session today but we made it happen. I for one am pretty happy with the outcome. Courtney and Josh are an awesome couple of people and I'm so happy to document this time in their lives.
 
I loved getting to use this new prop that I recently acquired.

My name is Steven and I'm a camera addict http://www.photosteven.com/blog/2011/12/my-name-is-steven-and-im-camera-addict

 I admit it, I can't stop myself from buying every cool old camera I find in thrift stores, pawn shops, or on craigslist.

  It may be a fad that will die out in a couple years to love the washed out colors and grainy low contrast images of old polaroids and plastic lens cameras. I don't care though, because a good image is a good image regardless of format. I've had a lot of fun shooting with some of my plastic lens 35mm  cameras that I've found here and there for less than a dollar each. It's a more fun way to get into low-fi photography (or lomography or holgagraphy or whatever you call it) to spend 35 cents on a plastic camera and shoot a roll than to buy a new "retro" camera for $50. You never know what you've got, and you never know what to expect from the negatives until you see them.

These are two more I picked up tonight at a thrift store. The polaroid was a quarter and the little "Kan Kon" was ninety nine cents. Of course feeding them will cost more, but its all for fun anyway. I'm wanting to do a few polaroid albums for portrait sessions. That's definitely something not all your friends get when they get their portrait made.
