Mike and Gina Steelman are a husband and wife wedding and event photographer team based in Monterey, California, specializing in photographing weddings and relationships for the most discerning clients in Carmel Valley, Pebble Beach, Monterey and Big Sur. For over 16 years they've mastered the art of capturing the little details, big moments, all the feels and the “in-betweens” that make for not just incredible photos, but real memories. Their heart for creating emotionally charged images results in images that you can feel. With an intimate knowledge of California's Central Coast, they have wonderful relationships with the local elite venues, but also travel frequently for their destination wedding, elopement, and corporate clients. From their hearts' homes in California, Hawaii & Idaho, to Florida, Punta Cana and beyond, Mike and Gina bring a down-to-earth professionalism and are your best selection for your photography needs.

Mike and Gina's commitment to Creating Art From Your Beauty™ is what drives them, whether it's photographing an intimate adventure elopement in Big Sur, a wedding on the beach of Maui, a proposal on the greens of Pebble Beach, an engagement session in the vineyards of Carmel Valley, a marriage ceremony atop the mountains of Idaho, or an illustrious corporate soiree in downtown San Francisco. If you're the kind of person that values experiences over things, you're their kind of people.

Coffee is our friend. Wineries & breweries are our jam. Tropical winds, palm trees, warm sand, friends, mountain air, fire pits, road trips... these are the things that fill our souls...

“Honestly, we couldn't have imagined a more perfect day.”

"Mike Steelman is a true professional with a passion for his job. He made me and my fiance feel very comfortable in front of the camera, resulting in natural expressions and amazing images (the colors he brings out are fabulous!). Mike was unobtrusive throughout the day, but was able to capture all of the special moments of our wedding day in a most beautiful way. He is amazing, and as a wedding professional myself, I would definitively recommend him to any and all couples!"

Mike Steelman and his wife are by far the most talented photographers I know. I have worked in the news business for five years and have not encountered a photographer with as much passion, creativity, and professionalism...

The wedding pictures are seriously amazing!!! I love how you caught so much emotion in a picture. Normally pictures are a snap shot, a still. But these are an exception. They have so much life in every one, it is amazing. I don't know how you do it! Those special moments really are priceless and you can't get them back. Thank you again!

overheard:

Mike was an absolute dream. I would highly recommend him. He is incredibly passionate and enthusiastic about weddings and his work, and passionate about his subjects. He really took the time to get to know us and to share in our excitement about our day. And it shows in the photos, how relaxed we were around him, how much fun we had!
