When I'm not photographing or with my family, I get lost in pop- impressionism oil paintings. Check out some of my work here.
This was an exciting wedding for me, as working at a new venue is always a treat! Amanda and Mark’s summertime Hotel Morgan Wedding brings all the magic you’d expect, and more! This historic venue is glamorous yet understated. You will not believe the two-story windows, marble floors and dark paneled ballroom, truly extravagant with a charm you do not see in many modern venues. When Amanda inquired with me in 2021, I jumped at the chance because firstly she was so sweet and kind, but second because Hotel Morgan looked stunning — and it did not disappoint!
My favorite moment at their Hotel Morgan wedding is the transformation from the ceremony to the reception — this was done so tastefully with pipe and drape and truly left the guests to be surprised by the banquet style reception set up. ALSO, I can’t get over their champagne escort cards! Such a smart way to set up guests for a champagne toast. Little details like that make all the difference!
And I am forever humbled by feedback from my clients AFTER the fact, like these words from Mark and Amanda:
“Steven Dray is such a talented photographer, not to mention such a down to earth and great guy. Couldn’t have picked a better photographer to capture our special day. 11/10 recommend.” – Mark, the Groom
“Five stars isn’t enough!! Steven Dray is absolutely AMAZING to work with, not to mention the stellar quality of his photos. Nothing but the highest of recommendations.” – Amanda, the Bride 🙂
