Midcoast Maine Wedding Photographers

BrightWorks is a friendly and accommodating team of Midcoast Maine wedding photographers.

My Story ~ Stephen Taylor

I have a long history as a photographer, starting in my twenties with large format view cameras, publishing a book of black and white portraits of Newfoundlanders, studying under Ansel Adams at his Yosemite workshops, and with Aaron Siskind and Harry Callahan at the Rhode Island School of Design. Now, my cameras and equipment are all the latest digital models, but I still rely on my experience and a well trained eye for capturing the optimal moment. Weddings are high key - they have a way of passing quickly - almost in a blur of emotion, ceremony, and celebration. I love to photograph weddings, to stop time, to capture with my camera the discrete moments which make up the whole and which might otherwise be lost over time.

We are a family oriented team of midcoast Maine wedding photographers; I work with my daughter and her husband on weddings large and small. In my free time, I enjoy flower gardening, hiking with my wife and our dog on island trails, and sailing the Maine coast with friends and family. I have also volunteered as an EMT at our local Fire and Rescue.

Rebecca is a documentary film producer/researcher with over a decade of experience contributing to national PBS broadcasts and independent films. She enjoys the parallels between film production and seamless, joyful event photography. Both require an eye for detail and a real interest in people’s stories. She and Gabe live a few miles from Steve in the town of South Thomaston, Maine.


Gabe is an architect, designing sustainable and energy efficient buildings for residential and commercial clients. He has been photographing since he was a child, when he would help his father as they developed and printed images in their basement darkroom. He loves the energy and happiness of weddings, and helping the BrightWorks team capture the day smoothly.

"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."
