about

sdp weddings is photojournalistic-style wedding photographer based in Portland, Maine. Stephen's background in videography and photography give him the knowledge and skill to capture authentic moments on your big day. He has a highly developed eye and takes great joy in bringing couple's story to life through a camera.

experience

Stephen has been behind the camera since an early age. He cut his teeth working for a veteran midtown Manhattan event photographer, eventually shooting alongside his mentor, and becaming the studio manager. After several formative years at the studio, he started sdp photography and began capturing events, portraits, tv set stills, and weddings. Now residing on Munjoy Hill in Portland Maine for many years, his passion for capturing couples on their wedding day has led him up and down the coast of New England, back to New York City, and as far as Puerto Rico. Stephen loves meeting new people and creating images that capture the personalities of his subjects.

    Destination: Awesome!

    Stephen was awesome! I recommend anyone in the area or way off (like me here in Tennessee) to use him! He was great with working with my very unorganized and laid back small destination wedding. The photos that were captured delivered the greatest memories from our special day! We didn’t meet until right before our ceremony, but yet he had planned and gotten enough detail beforehand that he was able to deliver the perfect portraits! To say I am pleased with his work would be an understatement! Awesome photographer!

    Steve captured our wedding in a beautiful, editorial style!

    We were super happy to have had Steve capture our wedding celebration! The communication beforehand was super smooth and thorough. On the day itself, he was flexible with all our last-minute requests and changes. We had a lot of "uncommon" photo ideas that he mostly rolled with easily, giving us some nice candid moments during our portraits session. The pictures came out beautifully and, most importantly to us, the editing looked very natural! He kept the colors vibrant and lifelike, exactly how we remembered the vibe to be at our big day.

    Couldn't imagine the day without Steve (our INCREDIBLE photographer)

    Steve was a calming and integral part of our intimate wedding experience. The photos are stunning.

    Each location and chapter of the wedding had a slightly different feel as the light and vibe changes. Steve preserved each of the emotions: trepidation, excitement, reverence, relief, and pure joy. There were smiles, tears, laughter, eating, and so much dancing. Steve worked overtime on the dance floor to capture some of the most fun moments of the night. Apparently, I hit my friend in the face with the bouquet… and Steve captured it all! We’ll have these memories for a lifetime.

    Clearly, I’d recommend Steve to anyone looking for a professional, laid back, and deeply invested photographer.
