I'm Steve, photographer for Shoot 2 Studios, and right there on the homepage you'll see my mantra: Shoot 2 Be Beautiful. Shoot 2 Be Different. Shoot 2 Be You. You're on Offbeat Bride because you're not a cookie-cutter couple planning a cookie-cutter wedding. For that I award you ten awesome points, and guarantee you that we already get along.

I got my start shooting in the untamed environs of New Orleans, an experience that drove my love for all things colorful, full of life, and a little bit (or a lot) different. I was never a guy that thought I'd shoot weddings, because my initial thought was that wedding = boring. That was before I had the great fortune of meeting an amazing series of clients who were musicians, artists, world travelers, and PhDs. They were you: the offbeat crowd that turned weddings into my favorite photographic adventures.

Now I'm totally focused on working with couples to make their weddings amazing. From getting involved in planning and scheduling to showing up on wedding day, I love being blown away by what you've put together. My favorite moments are when showing wedding work to people and they say "Wow, that's so awesome, but I could never pull off that." Yes you can. It's your wedding. Don't be afraid to show off the fun things that make you and your partner who you are. I'd love to be a part of it!
