About Stephen

Stephen first started taking photographs on his trip to Hawaii in 1983, 37 years ago. He enjoyed taking photos so much he did an album as a gift for a friend’s wedding. After that he started receiving calls to do other peoples weddings. Knowing his love for photography his family business Granite Drug purchased a Fuji mini lab and became the first store in R.I. offering one hour film developing.
