When I obsessively started taking tons of photos back in high-school, I never imagined that years later I would have hundreds of amazing weddings in my portfolio. Choosing to shoot such glamorous and tear-jerking events (no, I am not immune, either) came naturally, partly because I am a bit of a romantic myself, and because I was always drawn to people’s real emotions. I love what I do so much that sometimes I forget it's work, because it’s different every time – no two weddings, locations or couples are the same, and this makes things incredibly exciting for me. Wedding photography has taken me all around the world. I've shot in about a dozen different countries on 4 different continents and had some unforgettable experiences in remote places like Mongolia, India, and Belgium. So no matter where your wedding is, whether it's in a village on the other side of the world, an exotic beach, or an intimate backyard wedding in NYC, I'll be there with you. Read less

Steven truly captured the happiness and excitement of our wedding day! From the day that we booked STAK we knew we wouldn't be disappointed. Steven always helped to answer our questions and ease my mind when it come to arranging our schedule for our big day, since our wedding day was also the same day as the 5 borough bike tour. The day of our wedding arrived and Steven made us feel comfortable and have a great time taking photographs. Steven's enthusiasm and passion for photography is contagious. We are so happy with the final product. Another great moment was our viewing party. WOW is the thought that immediately came to our minds when looking through all our photos. I definitely went through all of the emotions that I experienced on our wedding day all over again. I still do each and every time I look through the gorgeous photos that were taken. All I can do is say thank you so very much we are so happy you were our photographer. You are a great person to work with!

Stak was the first vendor we booked for our wedding and we did not regret our decision at all! We knew from the very beginning that we had to have Steven as our photographer. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and made us feel comfortable. We has so much fun taking picture with him!

Seeing the pictures at his studio was an amazing experience. We felt like we were reliving our wedding day. He has an amazing eye for details and anyone can see it through his work. We really can't thank you enough for making our day so special.

Hiring Steven was the best decision we made for our wedding (other than marrying each other!). Not only are his photographs spectacular, but he is incredible to work with. The entire evening we could tell Steven was putting 100% into our photos. Last night we saw the pictures for the first time and we were blown away! He captured the emotion of each person as well as the vibe of the night. He took pictures of moments that we didn't even realize were happening. We can't thank him enough, can't recommend him enough, and will treasure these pictures for the rest of our lives.

Wow. To say STAK delivers is an understatement.

From the very start of our wedding planning, my fiancé and I had agreed that our top priority was the photos. After all the planning and partying, our photos would tell the story and help us to hopefully revisit one of the most special days of our lives. STAK truly stands out from the many photographers we researched, and partnering with them was the best decision ever.

We had very high expectations from STAK from looking at their work, yet somehow they still managed to exceed these expectations with their extraordinary talent, energy and professionalism. They are responsive, reliable, thorough and thoughtful, and really go above and beyond for their clients.

Having just seen our full photo library during our viewing party (yes – viewing party – so fun), we felt like we just got married again! It is simply amazing how these photos pull the real emotions out from that day. Steven has an incredible eye and managed to capture all of the best moments during our wedding – from beginning to end – and all from a unique perspective.

We really cannot say enough about STAK’s work, but the photos speak for themselves!

Most brides are stressed when planning a wedding. I am so fortunate to have worked with such wonderful vendors that I did not need to worry about a thing. STAK went above and beyond. From my first meeting with them I knew that they were hardworking, talented and very down-to-earth people that I could easily relate to. On the day of my wedding, I felt so comfortable with them and that is evident in my BEAUTIFUL photographs.

Not only are the photos fantastic but STAK was also very responsive to me. Anytime I emailed or called I was able to get in contact with them immediately. They also helped me decide on where the best place was to take my pictures. I had many ideas about where to do my first-glance shots. Steve made suggestions and we worked together to decide the best place, and it truly was!

I highly recommend STAK for any of your photography needs. I've spoken to brides who have told me they looked at their photos once and put them away - I have been looking at mine almost everyday since I've received them!

Choosing STAK as our photographers for our wedding was definitely one of the best decisions we made. Before we met with Steven, I was moved to tears browsing the website. I couldn't believe I had such emotion from looking at pictures of strangers. I knew I wanted our special day documented in that way. STAK exceeded all of our expectations and we felt so lucky that we found them. Steven caught some special moments where I didn't even know he was nearby. The first (and 2nd and 3rd) time I saw our pictures, I cried. I don't think there is another photographer out there who would have shot our wedding day like this. Steven really went out of his way to make us feel special, and there were many personal touches involved in the process, which were greatly appreciated. I would HIGHLY recommend STAK for your wedding. These pictures last a lifetime and you will be grateful you found Steven for your photographer, just as we were.

I would highly recommend STAK Photography.

Steven is extremely responsive and took the time to get to know us as a couple. He was also very transparent is laying out all the package options available for us to choose from.

On the our wedding day, Steve was all over the place, snapping away, probably took thousands of pictures to capture the story of our wedding. The shots he took were a combination of romance, fun, thoughtfulness, and just very natural, happy shots with remarkable framing. The STAK-booth was also a huge success, it definitely prompted our guests to do some crazy fun things at the photobooth.

After our wedding, Steve sent us a great preview picture that got us very excited. He kept us posted by blogging a series of photos captured from various parts of the day. And during the wedding photo premier party, it was such a joy to go over all the pictures and re-live our wedding day again at STAK's studio on big screen over a bottle of champagne. Steve is also a genius in selecting the right photos arranged in a thoughtful layout in making a storyboard of our wedding in a beautiful photo album.

We are so incredibly glad and privileged to have STAK Photography be part of our special day.

LOOK NO FURTHER! I can't stress enough that you will be blown away by choosing Stak. I live in Boston and was getting married in NJ so I chose all my vendors by researching and reading reviews. I narrowed it down to a few photographers and met with them on Skype. We knew right away that our personalities would work together - these were two very humble, pleasant, kind, and extremely talented people. They are genuine and you know it as soon as you speak with them. Before meeting with them, we were impressed by their candid style. We decided to sign with them and getting the paperwork done was a breeze. They are extremely responsive to emails and calls and always keep things simple and catered to their clients. They make you feel like you are their only client by the attention and care that they give and take a sincere interest in getting to know you. We first met in person for our engagement shoot. We are so glad we did this because we got to know the two of them really well and got some AMAZING shots! We shot during an extreme heat wave. Steven and Tak love their job so much that I think they would have shot for hours more. They were truly born to do this and the way they work together is so natural and seamless. It's amazing to be around! From the moment Steven and Tak arrived on our wedding day to the very last step they took off the elevator, they did not stop snapping pictures! Not in an annoying way, it was like they were always there but you never felt them there. They have a way of blending in but not missing a moment. There isn't a single thing I could suggest that they do better. They are full of surprises & special touches. Our wedding day wouldn't have been the same without them & the memories they documented are priceless. They are people we will always want to stay in touch with and we will continue to recommend them. They travel so you don't need to be getting married in the NY area to work with them. Meet with Stak-you'll want to hire them on the spot

Before I got engaged, I knew Steve and Tak would be our wedding photographers. I knew Tak in high school and after college, we reconnected on Facebook where I found out that her and Steve were wedding photographers. I loved looking at their photos and always thought how beautiful they were. After quite a few years later, I finally got engaged and didn't think twice about who my wedding photographers would be (thanfully they were available).

Steve and Tak did our engagement photos also. We planned our engagement shoot, but had to reschedule a least 4 times due to the weather. Stak was flexible and were very accommodating. My now husband and I were real nervous about the engagement shoot....how we would look and what we would do, but it turned out to be a great experience. We had a lot of fun and it felt so natural. This showed in our photos. It felt comfortable.

The day of the wedding went by quick, I barely remembered what happened, but Steve and Tak captured everything and more! They never got in anyones way. They were professional and never intrusive. When we saw the wedding photos for the first time, it was like reliving my wedding again. Every photo evoked emotion. It brought us back to one of the best days of our lives. The quality of the photos were amazing. They looked as if it came out of a magazine.

It was great to work with Steve and Tak. They quickly responded to any questions we had and were very helpful. They are friendly and truly care about their work as if it was their own wedding. Our wedding photos were very important to us. We made the best choice with STAK and are very happy with the whole experience. They're very talented and and it shows through their photos.
