I’ve been photographing weddings and other events since 1980. I have honed my skills for more than 30 years, shooting weddings large and small, working with various religions and cultures, and at an incredibly wide range of locations. Creating beautiful photographs of families, photographs, that recall memories for generations to come, this is my passion and career.



Tradition! Narens Photography is modern yet traditionalist. Along with shooting traditional, classic wedding photos, I am constantly learning the newest techniques and photography styles to create the wedding images of your dreams. We will be there to capture the “do not miss” traditional shots while accenting your story with photojournalistic candids. When you look at our photos in 25 years, your memories will come back to life.



Your story of a lifetime Together, we’ll discuss the pictures in your mind, and ultimately, those we’ll shoot to tell your story. Your grandmother’s corset. His grandfather’s cufflinks. The girls primping, the boys straightening bowties. She’s nervous about the aisle, he’s anxious to cross this threshold of manhood. She’s friends with all of her cousins, he keeps a close-knit circle around him. His friends will offer toast after toast, hers will dance all night. Grandparents will sit, and they’ll dance. Uncles with sleeping nieces. Cousins with long-lost cousins. Your two friends who meet at your wedding, and marry a year later. And we won’t miss the father-daughter, mother-son dances, an evening portrait of you on the balcony, or your tender moment on the dance floor amidst the crowd. The cake cutting, and your father’s tears of joy, we won’t miss those either.



The significance of your day Proudly married and having participated in numerous wedding parties, I know your feelings and emotions, your future memories, and the importance of your wedding. It would be an honor to record your families’ special day. Stephen Narens Read less

Stephen photographed my wedding on Aug 23rd and I don't have enough words to say how wonderful he was!

To start with it was raining in the morning and we had planned on taking photos outside before the ceremony, not only did he bring a lovely background for us to take pictures in front of, but when it stopped raining he still made sure we got our photos outside!

He was also wonderful with the children (2-8 years) we had in our wedding party. It is always hard getting nice pictures of little ones, but Stephen made it seem effortless, and trust me some of our kids in the party were very difficult to work with that day!

I had also given him a very long list of photos and requests that I had and he accommodated every single one, while giving me better ideas that had inspired him. It was truly the best of both worlds! He told the story of our day, balancing out perfectly the staged "formal" photos -that are necessary at a wedding - while giving us glimpses into the day that were more organic and so well done!

I highly recommend Narens Photography, for your wedding day and beyond!

Stephen Narens is a pro's pro. I should know. I've been a professional wedding photographer for over 20 years and as father of the bride, you want the best for the bridal couple. For me, Steve is the best. He brings a ton of talent & energy to every event and that was certainly the case for Meghan & Andrews wedding. He has a keen eye, a quick wit and an enthusiasm for his craft that really makes it a pleasure to watch him work and be part of the pictures he creates. We can't wait to see the final images and just know they will be the kind of moments to cherish forever. Thank you Steve.
