Steve Brown

Fashion & Wedding Photographer

Looking and finding the beauty in people & the world around him is Steve's forte. He has the most unbelievable ability to get everyone he meets to relax & have fun in front of his camera. I can honestly say that I have never seen this rare gift in any other photographer to this degree. Steve has managed to combine vast technical knowledge & experience with a unique artistic flare & showmanship.

From the first meeting you have with Steve Brown you will have confidence that his energetic style and charisma is perfectly matched with a unique artistic technical ability and professionalism.

His philosophy is simple, 'I will do whatever it takes to make the bride and groom look and feel spectacular on the most important day of their lives'. Experience has taught Steve that no matter what the situation is he can create beauty. This takes practice and education to see the light, to see the location, to direct the bride and groom, to adjust the required technical programs of the camera and to evoke the emotion and do all of this with humour and style.
Having shot in a number of countries around the world and with countless experiences of locations in New Zealand his vast knowledge of photographing weddings in city street, remote wetland, native bush, lakes and surf beaches, snow and mountains, waterfalls and rain and even a volcano, makes Steve a very sort after professional photographer. Steve is also a very talented designer and has designed and created many garments for himself and his clients including an award winning garment for the World of Wearable Arts which is now on display in their museum, as well as this, his sculptures and art works adorn his own and many other homes around New Zealand.
