Meet Steve, Rebecca, and Gabe, Maine wedding photographers. We are a family photography team capturing your day, your way. Whether you are planning a proposal, elopement or wedding, we will go to the ends of the earth to make images that you will hold dear to your heart.
Steve founded BrightWorks Photography to carry forward a passion for composing beautiful images that began with analog film and a hand-built darkroom. His eye for landscapes and his commitment to vivid, natural colors is combined with his daughter Rebecca’s enthusiasm for every couple’s unique story. The inter-generational camaraderie leads to a fun, collaborative approach to documenting the wedding day. Together, Steve and Rebecca work with Rebecca’s husband Gabe to photograph distinctive events throughout Maine and New England.

"AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHY TEAM"
"We recently had the privilege of working with Brightworks Photography for our wedding and I must say, we couldn't be more thrilled with the results. Steve, Rebecca, and Gabe were a dream team who were professional, friendly, and extremely talented from start to finish. Their personalities melded well with ours and made for an enjoyable day as they masterfully captured all the special moments of our wedding without interrupting our experience."

"MORE THAN A PHOTOGRAPHY TEAM"
"If you're looking for a photography team that's the perfect mix of modern and traditional, adventurous but classic, you might want to meet BrightWorks. Steve and Rebecca were always quick to respond to us as we were planning our elopement with them. They were so patient with us as we were indecisive on our ceremony location, and gave recommendations based on our interests and vision. We immediately felt comfortable upon meeting in person, and you can tell by the photos."

"OUTSTANDING QUALITY, PREPARATION,
"We loved working with Brightworks. Steve and Rebecca made us feel comfortable from our first conversation with them over Zoom. Steve and Rebecca were super flexible when bad weather struck, helping us get beautiful outdoor photos even on a rainy day. They were fun to be around! Because they are a family team, they made us and our families feel comfortable posing and kept a lighthearted tone."

"We are so thrilled we chose to work with you and absolutely love the story the photos share. Many of our conversations leading up to the big day helped us to lay out how it would all go. Your insight and organization helped us approach the day with ease. We were instantly attracted to your calm energy. It was important to us to work with a photographer that put us at ease because neither of us was excited to have a camera follow us around all day. Steve and Rebecca were the perfect fit."

"Steve and Rebecca made our Acadia NP elopement something very special! While working with them, my husband and I had nothing but the utmost confidence in them. They are thorough, professional, friendly, personable, and creative. They captured every aspect of our elopement, every smile, every laugh, every emotion throughout the day. When looking back at our photos, it's like we are able to step right back into the moment and relive it!"

"A COMPLETE GEM"
Stephen of BrightWorks Photography is a complete gem. He not only spent untold time getting to know the couple and the venue, he consulted on location and orientation of the wedding arch in order to take maximum advantage of the beautiful afternoon light. He was also a very calming presence on a hectic day. The entire family would have loved him without ever seeing a single photograph of the wedding, but when we did see them, we were blown away!"

"A JOY TO WORK WITH"
When we received the photos, we really felt they captured the entire day and night with such elegance. The photos were stunning! Steve worked with us to further edit the photos we chose to keep for our album, tweaking little things, a stray hair from the wind. We highly recommend BrightWorks Photography if you are looking for someone who is very experienced, extremely professional and a joy to work with."

"WARM, FRIENDLY, SHARP-EYED PHOTOGRAPHERS"
"We are absolutely thrilled with the pictures we got from BrightWorks. There's some of my notoriously photo-shy family members that I'll cherish nearly as much as the photos of my wife and I together. I can't recommend highly enough the photographers of BrightWorks. You'll get a wonderful catalog of your event from amiable, talented and kind photographers."
