ABOUT STEVE RUMBLE
I am a Durham Region wedding photographer, engagement photographer, and portrait photographer, but I travel all over central Ontario, including Toronto and the GTA.
Hi there! Welcome to my virtual world! My name is Steve, and I’m the owner/photographer at Steve Rumble Photography. It’s just me, and my amazing wife Emily often helps out (she even lets me think I’m in charge!). I like to keep things simple and intimate, just so that I can give you the best customer service and wedding photography experience possible. I know that your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, and it can be a bit stressful at times. I intend to add to your wonderful experience by providing you with laughter, calm, and gorgeous images of your love story that you will cherish for years to come. In addition to being a husband and photographer, I am a dad to two amazing kids, and a teacher.
Some people ask me how I got interested in photography in the first place. I’ve always been involved in the arts in some respect (I do have a Bachelor’s degree in Theatre Performance!) But if I had to pinpoint a specific time and place where my passion for photography was ignited, it would have to be in the summer of 2008, on the western coast of Newfoundland – Cape Saint George to be specific. My young family was on our first big vacation, visiting relatives we had never met before. Not only was it a wonderful time spent with loved ones, but I was simply BLOWN AWAY by the breathtaking scenery. Everywhere we went could have been a postcard! I tried to capture everything possible on my 5.1 megapixel point-and-shoot camera, and I took hundreds of pictures, but it was one photograph in particular that is still one of my favourites today. It was a portrait of my daughter and son, arms around each other, standing on a rocky outcrop just steps from the Atlantic Ocean. Looking at the LCD screen on the back of my camera didn’t do the picture justice, but when I had it printed and framed a few weeks later, I couldn’t believe that I took that photograph! Why was this one picture fantastic when the other two hundred or so were just okay? My curiosity got the better of me, and this was the start of my journey...
My home and photography business are based in the Durham Region, but I photograph weddings all over Central Ontario, Peteborough, City of Kawartha Lakes, Northumberland, Prince Edward County, Toronto, and the GTA. I am definitely willing to travel (just ask!). I specialize in weddings, engagements, and portraiture. I am not restricted to one particular technique – my style is a combination of traditional and photojournalistic, and I definitely have an inclination toward outdoor natural environments. I strive to capture authentic photographs of people; beautifully classic pictures that will be treasured for generations.
