"For many years I searched for what I really wanted to be passionate about. In between jobs I would travel for months at a time, backpacking all over the world. I bought a camera and I was having the time of my life. It was fun, exhilarating, uncomfortable, exciting and I was hooked. Despite a great career in D.C, I wanted to pursue a life with constant adventure. Quickly, I realized that the camera was my ticket to enter in to that experience. I quit my job and moved to New York City.

Along the way I found purpose in the work I was doing. Through the years my camera became a tool for me to be there for people, to tell their stories to countless others. That moment when I clicked the shutter to photograph a mother dying of cancer, barely making it out of the hospital and surprising her daughter on her wedding day was unforgettable. Being on a mountain top in Titanyen, Haiti capturing a pair of TOMS on my feet and glancing over at an orphan with her own pair, coincidentally, truly reflecting the amazing One For One movement was unbelievable.

When not photographing I spend that time with my amazing girlfriend, Sera, and as well working passionately with Fish4Hope, a for-purpose organization that builds sustainable communities in impoverished regions of Haiti.

I feel so incredibly grateful to have found my purpose with photography and I cannot wait to tell your story through photographs."

Wow! Steve and his team are not only amazing artists, they are great, genuine people. You can always tell when someone loves his job, and with Steve, he loves it and he has a passion for it which shows in his personality and photographs. My husband and I had our engagement shoot as well as the wedding day with Steve. It felt just like hanging out with an old friend. Steve made us feel happy and comfortable in front of the camera. He is also extremely professional, easy to reach, and very accommodating. We can't recommend them enough!

What can I say about Melissa? Just amazing in every way. The level of care, attention to detail, professionalism and bubbly personality led to the most wonderful experience-and I haven't even got to the end result, the photographs!!
The photographs produced were beyond our hopes, they captured every moment so well and are so much more than the usual wedding photos - they are imaginative, creative and her use of light and the background led to the most wonderful outcome. A mention also must go to her assistant on the day, Jason, who is also extremely talented - I mean what a combination for our wedding, it was an absolute bargain for the service and outcome, we could not be happier!!!
Highly highly recommend Studio Saldana-they are the best, no doubt about it! Thanks again you guys

I can't say enough good things about Studio Saldana. We used them for our wedding photos at the Boathouse in Central Park and and we could not be happier with our decision. Steve and Melissa were wonderful to work with and they helped make our special day even better! They are genuinely great people and their photographs have turned out wonderful. I recommend them to anyone and everyone!

Where to begin?? A review would not be sufficient to encompass just how AMAZING Studio Saldana was for our wedding!! The entire team consisting of Steve, Melissa, and Pete went above and beyond to capture every detail for the photography of our entire wedding. I had found Studio Saldana after months of researching the top wedding photographers. From the very first days of contacting them to meeting Steve in person at our venue to planning and executing the entire process, the team has been exceptional beyond belief in delivering every aspect of their work.

During the planning of the wedding and in hindsight, photography is perhaps the most important thing. Photos are the only artifacts that you will have from your wedding years from now to look back on. Their work speaks for itself in capturing such intimate and endearing moments that take a very special art to encapsulate on film. I loved their photo-journalism feel, and I loved how they were able to pick up on those loving aspects of tender emotion in their work. Every photo of theirs really does speak volumes of expression. What I did not expect was how absolutely flawlessly they delivered their work. The communication was super fast and always attentive. The pricing was extremely and surprisingly affordable (you cannot get this quality for this price anywhere else or even close). And their professionalism along the way was better than any vendor I had come across in my entire wedding planning. After describing our wedding and my visions, Steve suggested to meet at the vendor site to do a walk-through to see my specific ideas in place. Steve coordinated with our timeline to fit in portraits and photos for our families and special guests that we requested. Even after sending him a list of names and introductions, he was able to get every picture that we wanted and find every listed guest without missing a thing. All in all, they were truly immaculate with our entire wedding! I highly recommend them!!!!

Steven has accepted to travel the world for our wedding. On his arrival, he has been part of the celebration, part of the family, part of the team.

He has been with us the whole time, without being on the way.

My husband and I are not poser, and we don't really know what to do with our hands or face, and that's where you can see that Steven is a real photographer, he has guided us, whilst speaking with us so it never ever felt akward (I know it sounds weird, but this is SO important).

Finally, the result is simply perfect. We could not have expected the quality of these pictures, of these precious moments discretly captured.

A big thank you to Melissa as well for the editing as, considering the number of pictures taken, it must have been an enormous job.

Thank you thank you THANK YOU!

We got married on the very first day of Summer and hired the talented Melissa Robin to be our main photographer. The hardest part of working with Melissa was because she made it really, really hard to choose our favorite photos for our album. Why? BECAUSE EVERY SINGLE IMAGE WAS SO PERFECT. There were just so many beautiful photos to choose from. I loved all the photos. Melissa's WORK IS ART. I follow Melissa on facebook and she takes amazing photos. You will love working with her as well because she has a great personality and will help you feel at ease. She was very patient with us. Very easy-going. She listened to me complain about the chance of rain all week. She tried to find a solution for us to take photos at indoor locations. Luckily, the weather was beautiful. Melissa captured e v e r y t h i n g about our wedding in the most beautiful way. The smiles. The laughter. all the expressions. In addition, we received the photos in less than a month. This turn-around time is considered very quick. Melissa is very responsive even though her schedule is busy. I love her! She's awesome. I highly recommend Studio Saldana.

Choosing to book w/ Studio Saldana was one of the best decisions that we could have made for our detestation wedding. From the very first email sent asking about availability to the actual wedding day. It was such an amazing experience and one that we will never forget. Studio Saldana were always so quick to respond to any and all emails that we would send them that it started to feel unreal, because those of you who are planning a detestation wedding will soon find out that getting a response back from a wedding planner or decor person almost seems like it takes an act of God before they respond. Not w/ Steve or Melissa! They rock!
You always hear all these horror stories of photographers taking over the wedding and taking charge of everything and every little detail, but w/ Steve it wasn't like that. I mean we knew he was there, but he wasn't overbearing or in your face all the time. It was like he was a family member who was there just taking pictures. Which was exactly what we wanted. By the end of our trip Steve was like part of the family and he will always be part of our family now!
Once we received our photo's we sat down to preview them and we both just cried...the images that Steve captured were images that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. The quality of the work was like nothing that we had ever seen. We can not put into words how grateful we are to have found such an amazing studio be part of our special day. Steve and Melissa will forever be part of family now!
Thank you both so much for making our special day be one that we will cherish for the rest of our lives and we have the photo's to prove it!

My husband and I used Steve and Melissa for our engagement photos and on our wedding day. What I loved most about working with them, was that all the shots came naturally, They did not pose us, or place us awkwardly-- they just brilliantly captured the moments. It definitely helped that they are very easy to talk to and fun to be around as well! Very easygoing, but professional.
On our wedding day, it almost felt as if they were one of our friends, experiencing the day with us -- all while taking beautiful photos.
The turnaround time for the photos was surprisingly fast, and they created a GORGEOUS album for us. They responded quickly to all of our emails and were very accommodating.
I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Best wedding vendor I worked with and I would recommend them to everyone! Steven and Melissa were a true pleasure to work with. Not only are they professional, responsive and flexible, they are so nice and fun to have around on your wedding day. Not only do they take their jobs very seriously, they also helped keep us on schedule, which is not even their responsibility. Turnaround of the pictures were so fast - we got them during our honeymoon! And even though I am so very not photogenic, they made me look great in the pictures, while really capturing the sentiments and emotions. We got tons of compliments! Cannot say enough great things about them!! (PS - I also used them for my Engagement Photos, and needless to say, they were amazing as well!)
