( Steven Michael  //  Dustin   //   Alyssa  )


Your wedding day is one of the most important and thrilling days of your life and your wedding photography is one of the most important investments you make for your wedding day.  This is for good reason.  Once the “I do’s” have been said, the cake has been served, and the last guest has left…there is you, your memories, and your photos to look back on.

Choosing a photographer means more than ensuring you will have beautiful photos that tell your story for years to come.  My clients hire me to be a trusted advisor, a people manager, a supporter, an uplifting presence, and a pre-planner with almost 10 years of experience, know-how, and intuition.  Other than your closest bridal party members, you will likely spend more time with your photographer than anyone else on your wedding day.  Choosing a photographer is far more than just a casual decision and your wedding is far more than just a casual event.  I hope to be able to serve you on your day!

STEVE, Principal Photographer…

Hey there I’m Steve and I’ve been professionally photographing weddings, families for 13+ years now.  I’m originally from the suburbs of Washington, D.C.  I have mostly lived in Bowie, MD and Annapolis, MD before transplanting to Kansas City, Missouri in 2006.  I currently reside in the south Kansas City area with my wife and three kiddos.

Over the years I’ve had the priveledge of photographing so many wonderful couples, families, children, places, and events. Every environment and every person presents a new opportunity to capture love, joy, personality, excitement, relationship, and reality. I love photography and I love meeting new people in new places.

Dustin is the very first Associate photographer for Steven Michael Photography!   I began getting to know Dustin in early 2016.  We crossed paths via Instagram and I had Dustin “2nd shoot” a few of my 2016 weddings with me.  Dustin has been shooting weddings since 2010-11 and has 5+ years experience under his belt.  I’ve invited Dustin to join Steven Michael Photography team as my first Associate so that together we can serve more Brides with a great wedding photography product.

Alyssa is the second Associate for Steven Michael Photography.  Alyssa has been shooting weddings for 5 years now and Instagram once again was the meeting place where I first noticed Alyssa and her great work!  From Alyssa… “My favorite part of the wedding day is the first time the bride and groom see each other. There is something so honest and beautiful in that moment. I love candid moments too, like parents’ smiles during the ceremony, and friends laughing and dancing their hearts out. This is why I love what I do.”
