Wedding details captured beautifully
Steve has always been into photography as far back as he can remember, loves gadgets, loves to push himself with new techniques and loves a challenge - he's also the technical one (read the geeky one) with all the latest and greatest camera equipment. When not photographing weddings or portraits he can often be found sat in front of his large dual screen Mac editing the wonderful images that he and Sandra have just taken ready for proofing - oh and he also loves coffee, which comes in really handy for those late night editing sessions :)
Sandra loves taking photos and even as a child was often to be seen with an old camera with her wherever she went - she's also the emotional one, often being taken along with all of the wonderful emotions of the wedding day. She loves to help people and when not busy with the camera is often found at weddings helping with the brides dress, putting on the button holes for the boys and generally being a good egg :) Oh and of course she designs all of our wonderful albums as well!
Steve & Sandra are extremely proud that SMH Photography has been invited to be a Best of British Weddings member, a very selective, invitation only group of some of Britain’s best wedding suppliers. Our member page can be viewed here
