Steve O'Donnell - Artist - Photographer

Yep....that's me!  Handsome looking devil arent I?  Sitting on a log, in the middle of no where, with a goofy look on my face.  Obviously I do much better behind the camera than in-front of it.

F.A.Q.
______

Why in the world would I hire you?
________________________________
"Pshhhhh, because I'm good.  Because I care about your images and my reputation.  Because I'm....oh darn....I'm gonna use the P word that every photographer uses...passionate about what I do from beginning to end.  Because I'm competitive.  Because I pay attention to detail.  Because you want your friends to be jealous of your images."


What kind of equipment do you use?
________________________________
"Canon professional DSLR cameras, Canon L series Lenses and Canon Speedlites.  You know....one of those heavy big honkin cameras that make your forearm sore from carrying it after a few hours."


That camera looks cool and all, but what happens if it malfunctions during my wedding?
________________________________________________________________________________
"Glad you asked!  No worries!  Have you seen what cell phones can do these days?  Ha!  Had you for a second didn't I?  I bring along back up cameras, multiple lenses and camera batteries, multiple memory cards, multiple flashes and multiple sets of batteries for those flashes.  I go to extreme lengths to protect your images until they are fully delivered to you.  They don't leave my hip until I get home, and once I do get home your images get fully backed up to 3 different hard drives before the editing process even begins.  See, told you I care!"
  

My venue only allows insured vendors, are you insured?
___________________________________________________
"Heck yeah I'm insured!  I carry liability insurance, equipment insurance, and errors and omissions coverage.  If your venue requires insurance I can provide them with a certificate of insurance within 48 hours notice."


Do you travel?
_____________
"Unless you're having your wedding in my front yard, the answer would be a yes.  If you choose to have your wedding in my front yard it will be an additional $3000 charge."


How do you dress when shooting a wedding?
_________________________________________
"It's Florida, and it's hot!  Flip flops, swim trunks, my favorite T-shirt, and that baseball hat my wife wants me to get rid of.  If that doesn't exactly fit your theme or vision I'll be sure to wear dress pants, a nice button down dress shirt or polo, and get my hair looking all nice. 


You are pretty entertaining, are you always this funny?
__________________________________________________
"Yep!  I lived with circus clowns for two years.  Feel free to ask me about that sometime."


I love those instagram type photos where everything looks all dingy yellow, or everything in black and white with just my bouquet in red.  Can you do that?
__________________________________________
"In my best Obi-Wan-Kenobi voice.....this is not the photographer you are looking for.  Sorry, but not my style.  I do everything in my editing style to keep it clean and timeless.  Last thing I want is for you to pull your photos out 20 years from now and smack yourself for thinking something trendy like instagram would stand the test of time."

This about me section is a little about me, but most of all, it is really all about you!

My mission is to capture your spirit, your personality, and your soul through the art of photography. I want nothing more than for you to have a wonderful client experience that results in unique, timeless photography which you are sure to cherish for years to follow. Beside the fact that I love photography and every aspect of it, I realize that hiring a photographer is not a necessity, but rather treating yourself to something special. I believe when you treat yourself you should feel happy about the process and the end result, and I take that very seriously. Whether your photography is for your wedding day, your family portrait session, or high school senior session I feel there is a story to tell through your images. Quite often that story is not only a split second moment of the camera's shutter, but also a dynamic chapter in your life. Simply put, I want to be the photographer who will help you tell this important chapter in your life. My philosophy is that your images should be about you, your family, your chapter in life, and what makes you unique. If you value photography as much as I do, especially if it is for your wedding day, then rest assured I have your back.


F.A.Q.

So What makes Photography by Steve O'Donnell different?

Well, there is the stunning image quality as displayed in my portfolio and previous client work. The technical aspect of having a clear image, proper skin tones, and depth in imaging that can easily be seen in a finished image. The process is the part that you may not have picked up on but you'll notice that my clients look naturally happy and I make sure that the process is comfortable, enjoyable, and fun for you. No one likes that awkward feeling of staring down the lens so I do my best to make you comfortable in front of the camera. I'm known to crack jokes and make you laugh even if it's at my expense. I do whatever it takes to make your wedding day or photo session an enjoyable experience.


What kind of equipment do you use?

"Canon professional DSLR cameras, Canon L series Lenses and Canon Speedlites. You know....one of those heavy big honkin cameras that make your forearm sore from carrying it after a few hours."
