I am Stephen, the artistic eye behind Essem Photos. I am a fine art wedding and portrait photographer based out of Flagstaff Arizona. With a love for candid moments, natural light and peoples stories, I capture beauty in intimate and subtle ways! I love people who are adventurous, completely themselves and always willing to let me capture that in their photos. 

Here's a list of things to help you get to know me better!

  • Foodie.

  • Love to travel.

  • Grew up in New Mexico.
