From his home in Stroud, Steve travels to weddings throughout Gloucestershire and the surrounding counties. His documentary style allows him to capture intimate and relaxed photographs of you and your guests celebrating on the big day.

Rather than working through the same set of poses, Steve captures naturally occurring moments of beauty, resulting in a unique set of images for every couple. He limits himself to 25-30 weddings per year in order to allow him to spend as much time as he can working on your photographs.


At the age of eleven, Steve's father presented him with his old camera and, from that day onwards, Steve couldn't stop taking photographs. He studied art and photography in Liverpool and worked as a junior photographer for Motor Sport magazine and the newspaper Motoring News. In 1999, Steve decided to begin photographing weddings and since then, has captured photographs at hundreds of celebrations across the UK.

The Photos

Steve specialises in documentary wedding photography, using an unobtrusive approach to capture the events of your big day as they actually happened. Over the years, this talented photographer has found that the more relaxed you are, the better your photographs will be. So, Steve leaves you alone to celebrate while he subtly snaps beautiful, naturally occurring moments between you and your guests.

If you'd like a few shots of the bridal party and key family members, then Steve will quickly and professionally capture these, without keeping your guests waiting for too long. Additionally, he avoids heavy editing, keeping his photographs as natural as possible in order to create a timeless finish.


Engagement Shoot

Engagement shoots are a brilliant chance for you to get to know Steve and experience what it's like to be photographed by him. A photoshoot of you and your fiancé in a location of your choice is also a lovely way to celebrate your engagement! You might choose to use one of the photographs from this shoot for your save the date cards or invitations.

    Steve is a master! My wife and I almost didn’t hire a photographer as we both had a negative view of the style of soft images and fake setup shots usual with weddings. We couldn’t have been more wrong. Steve with his fantastic sense of humor put everyone at ease with the camera – and the images? Steve managed to capture still moments of jovial perfection. As a husband and bride it was images of our favourite people and family members all together that we cared most about and these couldn’t have been more beautifully captured…and in the middle of a cheese carving competition (don’t ask). From my wife and I, Steve we salute you.

    Steve is a fantastic wedding photographer, and we were thrilled with our photographs. We have such a lovely arrangement of formal and reportage shots of our day. We specifically asked him to cover our wedding because we wanted an upbeat photographer, with lots of character who could handle the guests and get them where we needed them to be, as this is often the most difficult part! He is also very laid back and without you noticing he gets the shots that you hope he will. We were also really amazed at how quickly he turned the images around. We would highly recommend Ketch 22.

  • Bethany and Charles

    We honestly couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos, in fact I think I shed a few tears! – they are all fantastic; Steve is obviously a very, very talented photographer and knows exactly what he’s doing! I highly recommend him to everyone – as well as his distinguished photography skills, he is a really nice bloke and makes everyone feel at ease – a lot of them were taken without other people knowing which has produced some charismatic and natural looking photos; he also covered all of the formal shots that you would expect from a wedding photographer. How he managed to take them all by himself without any other help is beyond me! Thank you Steve x

  • Carly and Adrian

    Our wedding album is gorgeous and truly exceeded our expectations, we would have no hesitation in recommending Steve to anyone who ever tells us they are getting married. I am also sure we will be in touch in the future to have some “family shoots” done. Thank you for our Happy Memories Forever.
