  • Steve did an amazing job telling the story of our wedding journey. He is very professional, but more importantly, he is relational with his clients. Our engagement session was one of our favorite memories due to the way Steve gave us comfort and laughter behind the camera. Steve also went above and beyond to provide a special memory for me and my mom when he took bridal portraits. For the portraits, Steve took his time and paid close attention to detail to capture wonderful shots. Steve even worked around his schedule to pull off bridal portraits in time due to rainy weather. Last but not least, Steve is an amazing wedding day photographer. My favorite part of Steve's services includes a slideshow that he pulls together the day of the wedding which displays images during the exit of the wedding. I didn't cry a drop since the wedding ceremony began, but I was in a puddle of happy tears once the slideshow began playing at the end of the night. I highly recommend Steve Exum and team for y...

    Your wedding was simply a smash to document. Telling your story from engagement to bridal to wedding was a beautiful & inspiring experience. Bill is just hilarious, Kaley your are gorgeous with an authentic heart to match and Bill, admittedly married up. Good for Bill. Your mom, Mel, is a super mom and was an encouraging presence from our first meeting at the ice-cream shop to your wedding exit. She loves her girl! And well, your dad, Brad, he's keeper too. Hands down best father daughter dance I've ever witnessed and friend, I've seen MANY! Your wedding year narrative was just a blast to be there and document. Cheers Kaley and Bill!

  • Steve and is assistants worked tirelessly and patiently with all family and friends to capture nearly infinite moments in a fairytale day for our daughter and new son-n-law! The musical pictorial of engagement shots and wedding day progression from early AM to late PM was incredible. We can't wait for the opportunity to review the full portfolio! Brad and Mel Moser

  • Exum Photography worked really hard to get the best shots from our daughter’s wedding! Engagement pictures, her portrait and wedding day were all excellent. We all really enjoyed the “slide show of the day” before they left the wedding.

    Thank you Mel. We had so much fun shooting Kaley and Bill's wedding at Addison Farm in Elon. Outstanding efforts on your end to plan and pull off such an entertaining, fun and love-filled celebration. I will not forget Kaley and Brad's father/daughter dance. Just hilarious and priceless! Truly one of a kind.

  • One word describes Steve & his team... amazing. When we hired a photographer for our daughter's wedding, little did I know we would be getting a true friend for life. Steve's skill as a photographer is right up there with the best. But, skill as a photographer is a basic requirement. But, what sets Steve apart is the time he takes to get to know the people he is photographing as well as their family, friends and what you like and don't like. We had two weddings this summer... our Son in June and our Daughter in August. Steve worked both weddings. They were both different events in different venues and a different tone to each one. Steve took the time to emerge himself in the vibe for both events and to get to know the people involved in each. The results of both was extraordinary. The pictures were technically flawless, but more importantly, he captured the heart and soul of both events. Steve provides all of the classic wedding shots. The bride, the groom, the families and all ... Read more

    Wow! Bill I'm humbled by your incredibly kind remarks. Thank you so much. You said more in your review than I could ever possibly try to convey. You truly get my intentions and the strategy behind my approach. Many, many thanks.

  • It was amazing to have Steve and his crew cover our wedding . Steve is very detailed oriented and had great suggestions with his experience over the years and helping us from having a good timeline to a great timeline on the day of the wedding where he captured all of our great moments. We now have a great memory of our wedding not only in our mind but in pictures as well as they did an amazing job capturing the moments.

  • I would recommend Steve Exum 100%. His pictures are beautiful and worth the money. You are already getting ripped off on everything because it's a wedding but he is actually worth what he cost. My husband and I are average looking at best and we had 2 pregnant bridesmaids and a bridesmaid with Down's syndrome but Steve is so good at what he does and makes you so comfortable that our pictures could be in a magazine.

  • Steve has photographed both our sons and daughters weddings this summer. The picture from both are truly amazing. He was able to capture the unique features of both weddings and was so easy to work with. His pictures were really important to me especially at my daughters wedding. I was so involved with all that needed to happen that I missed a lot of what was going on. Over the last two days I've looked at the pictures and video over and over so now I feel I really appreciate the beauty of our wedding. Of all the money we spent for the wedding, I feel the money we paid for our photography was the most well spent. I wish I had another event to hire Steve for, it was a pleasure to work with him . He truly has a gift for capturing the heart of a wedding.

    Thank you Lori. As a dad with a daughter - now more than ever - I realize how precious a wedding day is and having shot so many I know how all too quickly it passes. It's easy for some of the participants to miss parts because they are so involved in executing the day and seeing to the needs of the couple and their guest. Capturing the narrative to me is a calling because (like u said) it allows the families involved a chance to hit the pause button, enjoy and rewind and watch again. You all poured so much energy, effort and love into and amazing celebration ... it was my honor & responsibility to capture it.

  • Steve Exum captures the day like few wedding photographers do ... his eye for light, color, and a natural look produce images that are stunning and real. I've entrusted two of my daughters' weddings to his creative, capable, and detailed hands. His end of the night slideshow was a favorite event at both of my daughters' weddings. He's simply one of the best.

    Amy it was an honor and a privilege to tell Rachel and Josh's story in pictures. There was so much obvious joy and love visibly evident in their faces that it made capturing these moments genuinely easy. I love your family. This was not a shy group of partiers on the dance floor. The NC State wolf duo guest appearance was pretty much the icing on the cake to take the partying up a notch. So much fun ... such a joy to document! Happy anniversary to you and Jim! Warmly - Steve Exum

  • If you are looking for an amazing professional, creative, passionate and true quality photographer for your wedding, Steve Exum is your guy! We specifically chose Steve because of his "journalistic" approach to photography. I was blown away with the photographs he took- they perfectly captured the "vibe" of our wedding and expressed true emotion. I especially loved his group wedding shot, we will treasure that forever. I could not be more pleased with Steve and his crew, they are the BEST!

    responded with the following comments.

    You nailed it Gabie. We try to tell YOUR story because an amazing story happens at every wedding and no two weddings are a like. A photojournalist can anticipate where to be and when to shoot to capture that authentic story. A wedding is full of priceless moments and it's one reason I always encourage the bridal party and family to follow the bride and groom directly out of the church for that peak celebratory moment. I discourage wedding coordinators from "hiding" the bride and groom immediately following the ceremony. Worst practice ever. There were so many priceless moments at your wedding, your bridesmaids peaking in from the door as you got ready, the altar exchange big smiles at each other, your exit, you mom's embracing outside the church (love that shot) your beautiful first dance and the dances with your parents and that amazing moment when Rob serenaded you from the stage. PRICELESS! And maybe even more priceless was the moment you grabbed Rob after his rockstar performance in complete shock and so much Joy.

  • Steve and Alex were wonderful to work with! They were very professional, patient and blended in almost to the point that you didn't even know they were there and taking pictures. They were kind and appropriate with the small children and seniors, making everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. Their work was amazing! We loved our pictures and so do all our guests. They did all the standard traditional shots that our parents wanted, but they also took some amazing and unique shots that we wanted. Their eye and creativity was perfect. We would definitely use them again and highly recommend their services.

  • We booked Steve Exum and the Exum Photography team for our June 2016 wedding in Durham, NC, and we were so pleased with the entire experience. A friend of mine used Steve for her own wedding, so we knew that we would be getting high quality photos of our wedding--but Steve went above and beyond expectations! The whole team is incredibly professional and reliable, something I appreciated more on my wedding day than I ever thought possible. They were on time, they made sure to take every single photo we requested and discussed as well as many many more, and they have a real skill for capturing natural photos--our friends and our family look comfortable and happy in every shot. They knew my husband and I were eager to not spend too much time taking portraits between the ceremony and the reception, and they managed to capture a series of absolutely stunning portraits in what must have been record time. My husband and I both fully recommend Steve and his team!

    Logan, I appreciate your observations so much. I really try to be efficient and creative and capture moments as naturally as possible. My goal with every wedding ceremony is to be an asset in helping it go smoothly and comfortably while telling a beautiful narrative and being as unobtrusive as I can. I so want my clients to love their wedding photos and remember their day as a joyful and soul filling celebration. I always want to surpass expectations.

  • Steve and his team are phenomenal! My brother and sister both used him for their weddings, so when I got engaged, the first and easiest decision I made was booking Steve. I even called him to make sure he had our wedding date free! During both the engagement and bridal sessions, Steve made the experience relaxed and fun. I love his team's attention to detail, knowing that they would capture all the special moments at all of our wedding events. They are professional, hard working, and fun to be around. We love every photo and our overall experience with the Exum Photography group. Thanks, Steve!

    Janey, Thank you so much for your kind words. You and your family are like family to me. Shooting the last of the Elmore weddings was both an honor and came with a bit of sadness as it feels like the end of era of engagements, bridals and FANTASTIC wedding celebrations! Warm Regards - Steve

  • Steve did an awesome job at our wedding. We booked things late he was very accommodating and the pictures came out beautiful. This was a second marriage for both of us an he captured our personality beautifully. I highly recommend Exum for any occasion. Will definitely be using him again when my kids start getting married. My whole family loved him. Steve worked with us on cost as well. We did not have a traditional wedding just pictures for the party celebration... thank you Exum for great pictures from our wedding day!!
