Our guess is that you're the kind of person that values experiences over things...is that you? Then welcome to Steelman Photographers! We're a husband and wife destination photographer team based in Monterey, California. We’ve been photographing weddings and events for nearly 16 years, capturing all the feels, little details, big moments, and all the “in-betweens” that truly make up your day. With an intimate knowledge of Monterey Bay and the Central Coast, we photograph weddings primarily in Carmel Valley, Monterey and Big Sur, but we also love our destination wedding and elopement clients. From our hearts' homes in Hawaii & Idaho, to Florida, Punta Cana and beyond, we're ready to work with you. Travel is usually included too.
Creating Art From Your Beauty™ has been our passion whether it's an intimate adventure elopement in Big Sur, a wedding celebration on the beaches of Maui, an engagement session in the lush vineyards of Carmel Valley, a marriage ceremony high atop the mountains in Idaho, or the most illustrious corporate soiree in downtown San Francisco. We create emotionally charged images that you can feel.
Why choose us? Well, it starts with what we bring to the table: the authenticity of our relationship. We've been married for nearly 22 years (whaa?), and obviously value marriage. It sort of spills over into what we do. We want your marriage to be awesome. Your relationship is one-of-a-kind, unique & no one else can be who you are. We totally get that. Let's celebrate you. That's what it's about. It's not just a job for us - it's real life. What better way to start your marriage off than by cherishing your authentic moments captured by trusted photographers who get you?
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...
We've prepared an over-abundance of galleries for your viewing pleasure. Take some time to connect and feel the images! From marriage proposals to weddings to family portraits, and even a few corporate events. It's all here.
This page is loaded with everything you need or want to know about wedding photography! Seriously though, if you have a question, it's probably answered here. There are a ton of things to think about & digest when planning your wedding. We get it. We've got you.
With the love these two share, Folktale Winery in Carmel Valley never looked so good! Their Carmel Valley wedding was stunning...
We're fine art wedding photographers who also photograph a handful of corporate clients, private events, and family portraits throughout the year. If you made it this far and are looking for something other than photos of couples, check out the options below.
