The photography journey started when Steven’s passion for art and knowledge in IT and Multimedia led him to a position as a Photo Editor and Graphic Designer for a top rated NYC wedding photographer after he graduated from college.
Ever since, Steven’s life became inexorably intertwined with people photography. Starting from editing hundreds of photographs each day, he developed extremely keen eyes for photo color, contrast, brightness and consistency throughout. The images he edited were that much more pleasing even for the already beautifully captured images. His talent and hard work combined with his warm and agreeable personality, dedicated and reliable attitude, he soon gained trust and became good friend with his photographer boss. He was offered training and started assisting in various weddings first as an assistant photographer and then a second photographer, and sometime on his own. After a few years, acknowledging Steven’s talent in photography, his boss encouraged Steven to start his own business. Therefore, April and Steven photography was formed the following year, in 2011, after April and Steven got married.
Throughout the years, in each wedding, each photo session, Steven strove to provide the best photography service for each client by not only delivering pleasing images that's true, natural, and full of love, but also providing peace of mind by being well prepared, mindful, and always positive and joyful for the clients.
