monterey - carmel - Big Sur - Hawaii - NAPA - BOISE - DESTINATION WEDDINGS

Our guess is that you're the kind of person that values experiences over 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.

we're glad you're here.

hi there...

Since we're being honest, it seems wedding photographers are a dime a dozen nowadays. What sets us apart? Well, it starts with what we bring to the table: the authenticity of OUR relationship. We've been married for 21 years (whaa?) & value marriage, including yours. Your relationship is one-of-a-kind, unique & no one else can be who you are. We totally get that. Let's be friends, celebrate our uniqueness, and create some incredible photos together!

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...
