!!!!!!Oh My God!!!!!!!!

This man was absolutely bloody amazing. I cannot speak more highly of Steve. He’s a true professional and was so great to work with.

Such a down to earth guy with a great sense of humour. An all round top bloke. How he controlled our motley bridal party I will never know.

Steve all our guests have raved about how wonderful you were and I couldn’t agree more.

Future brides and grooms book him! You will not be disappointed.

Steve is a amazing photographer, he captured our day with brilliance and is always willing to go that extra mile to make sure he captures those special moments (even in torrential rain). Thanks Steve for the amazing memories. Shari and I get to share all over again.

Huge thank you to Steve McMarson for being our wedding photographer at Cedar Creek Lodges on 08/04/2016. We initially picked Steve based on his creative and candid photos seen on his wedding site, with Steve very dedicated to capturing memorable moments with loved ones. From our first meeting Steve was very professional, whilst also being warm and genuine. We most of all chose Steve based on the passion he showed for taking photos of all relatives and friends in the moment, staying for the entire reception to capture some of the dancing antics and candid interactions. The pre-wedding photos were the first nice shots we have had of my husband and I, as we both tend to avoid photos and can both be very awkward, however Steve brought out our characters by getting to know us and somehow embraced our awkwardness. The styling tips for the wedding day were also appreciated, even though not all were put into action on the day on account of nerves (sorry about that Steve as the water may not have been cupped and not sure about the sneaky elephants, as it was all a bit of a blur). On the day Steve went with the flow, capturing genuine moments and adding his stylistic flair when taking photos of the bridal party. The pre-wedding shoot allowed us to also get to know Steve, feeling more comfortable when he arrived and pre-wedding nerves were in full swing. We particularly liked his ability to joke around and allow everyone to feel comfortable with getting their photos taken, even bringing out one of our groomsmen’s feminine sides. Thanks for making our wedding day so special. We would highly recommend Steve as a wedding photographer and will definitely use him as our photographer in the future for capturing special moments.

When my wife and I decided to look for a wedding photographer, as most couples we decided to have interviews with a few different photographers. What we found is that Steve McMarson’s Photography was the only photographer who didn’t want to dictate our wedding day. Steve’s approach to his photography and your wedding is real. Nothing fake. No mock cutting of the cake, no mock entrance, no time limits, nothing fake at all. Steve’s commitment to your wedding is reflected in each and every photo that he produces. I am very proud of our photos that Steve has taken of our special day and can only praise Steve for the life time of memories he has created for my family and future family. As soon as we entered Steve’s studio we both knew that we had found our photographer. Steve has a very friendly nature and you can tell instantly that he has a passion for his work. My wife Rachel and I left our first interview with Steve and it felt like we had known each other for years. Following Steve on Facebook has made me realize that his photos are just amazing. I would strongly recommend that you browse through Steve’s photos available on his website and Facebook account. You will not be disappointed. On the wedding day Steve was excellent, he conducted his business very professionally and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I was amazed on how many of my friends and family commented on Steve and his willingness to take your perfect photo. Our wedding took place in a fairly remote location and Steve literally was there for the whole event. Everything I had envisioned that I wanted for our photos of our wedding day were delivered to us. I can only compliment Steve on his work and personality and have no reservations in using and recommending Steve McMarson’s Photography again. Thankyou Steve… my wife and I really appreciate your effort and willingness to capture our wedding day. We look forward to sharing more of our memories with you in the future.Thanks again.

We were privileged to have Steve as our wedding photographer! On our wedding day it was pouring rain and as usual I was a stressed out bride! Once Steve arrived he brought a fun and calming atmosphere and started to work his magic! Steve has the amazing ability to capture the moments of emotion … Whether it’s sadness, happiness, enjoyment or the love between two people from across the room! The photos Steve captured at our wedding are unbelievable… People are always complimenting them. Steve was there at the very start of the day and didn’t leave until the party was over, he was absolutely perfect and we couldn’t of asked for a better guy to capture our special day!!!

7 exceptional photo shoots with many more to come with our ever expanding little family. We stumbled upon Steve while looking at our wedding venue at Albert River Winery back in 2012. Over the years we have gotten to know Steve on an intimate basis through Engagement photos, Wedding Day and Night, Maternity, and Family Photos. Steve is the type of Photographer that can take any situation and make it a moment to cherish for life, the photos and quality of work are not only represented by the multitude of awards won but by the photos we get to show off to family and friends with compliments and enquires to whom these were done. We the Huggins’ssss (As Steve calls us) could not commend the work he has done for us enough and continue to recommend him to each and everyone that is looking for an exceptional, caring, professional photographer. Thank-you Steve and see you again soon. The Huggins’sssss

Steve is a fantastic and knowledgeable photographer with a style that is unique among an ever growing field of photographers. As a photography enthusiast, I browse a lot of photographers work and Steve is one of the most capable and rounded photographers I have come across. Years of sales experience hast taught me one thing about photographers like Steve, Make your bookings well ahead of time because he’s bloody great at what he does. You can browse gumtree or friends of friends, but you’re most likely going to end up with ‘just photos’ that do little to mark the sincerity and beauty of your special occasion.

Steve has a great way of making you and your family and friends feel relaxed while doing a shoot. I’ve had both wedding and family photos taken by Steve and they always get fantastic compliments whenever people see them.

I was recently a Bridesmaid at my sisters wedding where Steve was the photographer. It was excellent! He did so well to make us all feel so comfortable and captured all the magic events of her wedding especially between my sisters and I! I will definitely keep him in mind when I get married!
Tamara Crandon


Steve is such an amazing photographer. I don’t know how he does it – I think he might be magic. It’s not easy to get a good photo of me, but somehow he’s managed to and made it look completely effortless. He’s also a really lovely person and just has a way of putting you at ease and making you feel comfortable. If you’re not the sort that likes having a camera pointed at you, he’s the guy for the job.
Jess Curtis

Loved Steve’s professionalism. Steve was the photographer at my friends wedding. Throughout the night, Steve’s ability to be at the right place at the right time was great and he managed to capture all the memorable moments . I love looking at the final result of all his work, the photos always turn out so captivating and rich in colour. To top it off, it was great chatting with Steve on the night, he was very easy going and everyone got along with him well! Would definitely recommend!

I wanted a photographer for my wedding that saw as I did and captured what I saw as if they were looking through my own eyes and that’s exactly what I got. Now I can share those images with my friends and family and know they see what I saw and feel how felt because I had the perfect photographer. I also cry a little every time I see the amazing sunrise I missed when I was late but not because of sadness it’s from gratitude that my amazing photographer caught it for me. A photo I will cherish all my life. Insightful, mind blowing and intuitive to an uncanny degree.

スティーブ・マクマルソンの作品は、日本人が見慣れているフォーマルな結婚写真ではありません。 ホームページで彼の作品を初めて見た時、なぜこんなにも感情の溢れた豊かな写真が一日で撮れるのだろう?と心底思いました。プロであることは当然ながら、彼の写真には、家族や親密な間柄にしか見せないような二人の特別な瞬間がたくさん散りばめられていたからです。スティーブと初めて会い、プリフォトセッションを経て、その疑問はすぐに解けました。 おそらく天性の人なつこい性格が、被写体をとても自然にしてくれることは言うまでもないのですが、何げないやりとりから感じられる彼の純粋な人間への興味が、私たちの“自分ですら気づかない表情”を探し出し、そのかけがえのない瞬間を切り取ろうとしているのです。 アルバムの編集を見て沢山の発見があり、私たち二人にとって、家族、友人にとって大切な何かを教えてもらえた気がしました。彼の作品は、私たちにとって宝物です。

We had Steve shoot our wedding and his work was phenomenal. He got beautiful shots of everything and his editing afterwards was very subtle as his photography was already amazing. We loved the album we recieved from him, with our photos looking great in both colour and black and white. I would definitely recommend him for all and any of your photography needs. Easy to talk to and easy to do business with – great guy

We had the privilege of having Steve photograph our wedding day, and almost 5 years later, guests and friends still comment on what an excellent, unique and high caliber photographer he is. While maintaining professionalism, Steve creates a relaxed atmosphere on what is a nerve wracking, exciting, emotional day, and while capturing the moments you will treasure forever makes the whole process ridiculously fun! Having worked in an environment witnessing many weddings and many photographers, I’ve never come across one that exerts so much time and effort, going above and beyond to record the priceless memories that will last a lifetime. After witnessing Steve in action, and seeing the beautiful images he produces, I didn’t even talk to another photographer! I adore looking back through my photos and reliving the emotion, the happiness and excitement of the day. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough, his work speaks for itself. Stunning, unique. Perfect.

What can I say – our wedding photos blew us away – absolutely stunning images that far exceeded all expectations. Steves energy and dedication produced the most amazing collection of photos. Steve captured our day from start to finish and was one of the last to leave in the early hours, even though he worked alone he captured all the wonderful moments, however we hardly knew he was there – discreet, unobtrusive but always getting the shot – could not recommend more highly Weddings Scenic Rim

Steve is an exceptional person and photographer. He is quietly dedicated to his craft. He has an adept ability to understand what the client wants and will do his utmost to deliver the best. We recently had family photos taken and he worked miracles with our two yr old poker faced son and took some incredibleimages of him playing in the creek. We love the photos. They are natural and candid in a beautiful setting near Steves home. Steve is calm and caring and a consummate professional who makes it look effortless. We will treasure his images and can’t wait for him to take more of our newly grown family.

Steve has been a photographer at more than a few weddings I have been too! Most recently I was a bridesmaid for a wedding at sirromet winery and I honestly don’t think you can find a photographer that captures the beauty of this venue more than Steve did!! The weather on the day went from bad to worse and the pictures just kept getting better! (Que reflection in puddle pictures) I would have been so proud to have the pictures as my own! He is a pleasure to work with and makes everyone feel more than comfortable… And he even throws in the dad jokes for free! Haha I know who I’m coming to when I finally have my turn walking down the isle!!

Getting in front of the camera is always nerve racking whether its for the first time or the hundreth but having Steve Mcmarson on the other side of the lense was one of the best photoshoot experiences to date. The perfect balance of professionalism and fun i went into the shoot a tad on the nervous side but left feeling confident, empowered and beautiful. The photos came out better than i could have ever dreamt and i cannot recommend Steve enough. No matter what the occasion having the perfect photographer can make anything go from just “ok” to “incredible” and I cant wait to do more shoots in the future with him!

My Wife and I have known Steve for many years, and have had him do photos of us at our home, and in his studio , he is such a professional photographer, and such a nice person, we then had him do the photography for my Mum’s 85 birthday party. Within a few minutes of arriving, he had become part of the family, and made the day even more enjoyable. From individual photos to groups of 20 or more, it was all fun, and the photos are fantastic, with family members all over Australia singing Steves praises. If you want quality photos done by someone who can fit in with any group, then Steve is your man.

I have known and worked with Steve McMarson for 15 years and he is a highly accomplished artist. His background in drama and media, helped along by a very considerable amount of natural talent and creativity has contributed to Steve’s success as a professional photographer. Great interpersonal skills compliment Steve’s creative genius; not to mention his ability to always be in the right place at the right time for that perfect shot. I’m always recommending Steve to friends and colleagues.
Brenda Little


During our search for a wedding photographer we came across Steve McMarson’s website and immediately recognised the extraordinary quality of Steve’s work. After meeting with Steve at his studio in the rustic surrounds of Wolffdene in the Gold Coast’s hinterland, we knew he was the person who would best capture the essence of our special day. Steve’s obvious talent is accompanied by a personable demeanour and professionalism which immediately put us at ease and instilled us with confidence. Over the ensuing months we learned it wasn’t only Steve’s talent and professionalism that sets him apart. Steve genuinely cared about what we wanted and clearly took pride in the quality of his work. And he didn’t just listen, he delivered. Steve’s knack for putting people at ease facilitated natural, non-staged, shots which enabled him to effectively capture the emotion of the day. The end result is a collection of marvellous photos: a combination of intimate moments, casual interactions, portraits and artistic images. The imagery was in fact so powerful that the audio visual presentation of our ‘album’, projected on a screen at Steve’s studio several months after the event, recreated the emotion of the day so vividly we felt like we were there…re-living the occasion with our friends and family. Steve provides a personalized service and quality of product second to none. He goes the extra mile to ensure complete customer satisfaction and gave us more than we ever expected. Steve is not only an artist, but a wonderful person.
