Mike Steele is a world class photographer who for the past two decades has ventured to many of the most exotic destinations in the world, searching for the perfect shot. Traveling the globe throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa, even Papua New Guinea, he has worked in caves, up in helicopters, and under the sea. Mike still hasn’t found the perfect shot, only the “perfect moment”.


Although an expert in the science of photography and light characteristics, Mike Steele’s passion for photography has culminated in the art of working with people. This art has expressed itself in special moments in the lives of film celebrities and famous sports figures that Mike has photographed.


Perhaps the highest artistic meaning and value of photography is to capture a special, “perfect moment”; a frame of time that is a window to a turning point in the story of someone’s life. It is this artistic meaning that creates Mike’s passion for wedding ceremonies. Weddings are filled with special moments that will never happen again in a lifetime. The album becomes a record of family history. It is Mike's passion to capture these moments and provide the wedding couple with truly beautiful photographs that they will cherish for a lifetime, and for generations to come.
