Howdy! I am a careful, fun, serious, creative, bust-ass hard working full time photographer who is scared to death of making average, uninteresting, unskilled photographs. I genuinely love what I do. And I genuinely consider it a privilege to document one of the milestone events in your life.
Three things set me apart from the pack.
1. EMOTION. Over the years I have learned how to gently guide my clients into RELEASING their emotions on Wedding Day. Many feel tense and a little awkward in front of a camera lens (I do). Through the words I say and the tone of my voice I always get you to look your best, happiest, smiling-est, crying-est, genuine-est. It's a skill that takes years to learn.
2. LIGHTING. Clients always remark on how my photos *pop*, how they look more crisp and elegant and professional than a lot of what's out there. One reason is because of the array of lighting I bring and skillfully use throughout the day. Much of your wedding will likely take place in the dark. Your wedding photographer should be a master of lighting.
3. SERVICE & PERSONAL CARE: From the moment she picks up your phone call to that happy day your gorgeous heirloom album arrives, you will be personally cared for by my wonderful wife Chris, the nicest, strongest, hardest working person I know. Her kicked back personality, easy laugh and regular smiles are all real. She is one of the most responsible and likeable people you will ever meet. I consider her my secret weapon of success. You and I are both very lucky to have her in our corner.

Working with Steve was a dream come true! I honestly could not have asked for a better photographer for our wedding pictures. I was referred to Steve from another photographer because I was looking for a very specific look and they knew Steve was the guy for the job. When I first contacted him he said he no longer did weddings, but asked for my details anyway. After chatting for a bit he agreed to work with us and I am SO happy he did. We did a two hour session starting at the "Welcome to Vegas" sign and worked our way to Fremont, Steve knew all the best locations and our pictures turned out exactly how I wanted them to. I was honestly only expecting maybe 15-20 photos but we got hundred and they are amazing! He exceeded our expectations and was a joy to be around. I highly recommend Steve for any of your photography needs!Sent on 04/29/2020

Steven Joseph Photography was AMAZING! I am so happy I chose to use them for my wedding day. The pictures turned out beautiful. Steven plays a lot with lighting, this is one of the main reasons I chose to work with him. His pictures are super vibrant! I had family and friends come up to me after the wedding when he released the "sneak peek" pictures and say "your photographer was amazing" and "the pictures turned out great"!Sent on 11/11/2015
I had a destination wedding to Vegas (I am originally from Chicago) and I am glad I chose to work with Steven. In Vegas, the chapel said they will "provide their own photographer". So for our chapel time, we had to use the photographer the Aira provided and his pictures were junk compared to what Steven Joseph did! I highly recommend to go with an outside photographer for after the ceremony, this was one of the best decisions I made and I saved money! The Aria wanted a lot more money to use their photographer after the chapel.
In conclusion, go with them as your outside photographer! Steven is super flexible, super easy to work with, and knows how to capture the moment. Steven also coordinated with us to take pictures at the Las Vegas sign and on the strip!!!!!!!!!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Steven Joseph Photography. Steven was nothing but professional and accommodating from the start. I am from PA and planned my wedding in Las Vegas from across the country. Steven was kind enough to work so closely with me and my numerous requests from across the country to plan the perfect day. He was more than willing to ensure that I had all the shots where I wanted around various locations in Vegas (Church in Henderson, Las Vegas sign, & all around the Venetian for our reception). He was wonderful with EVERYONE in our wedding party from my 1 1/2 yr old son to my 80 yr old grandma. He ha a unique way of making camera shy people (like myself, the bride) feel comfortable being photographed.Sent on 04/10/2016
Finally, the actual photos came out so beautifully. I am positively thrilled with everything from Steven Joseph Photography and am so happy we have the photos and experience for a lifetime. Thank you!!
Blown away by the skill set and talent! Really looking forward to working with all of you again
I worked with Fogarty at the Hard Rock for a 'surprise wedding' - what fun we had! Forgarty is so professional. I highly recommend them! Judy Irving
Steve is an extremely warm individual who wants to put his best foot forward for each and every bride and groom. He is a joy to be around with his positive attitude and upbeat personality. His photos are also extremely beautiful! We've worked on a number of weddings with FogartyFoto and look forward to many more with them!
