Our nearest and dearest came to witness our marriage, and stayed for the best party we'll ever throw.

I always thought of myself as someone who's drawn to color and that translates into photography as well. Color images set my heart a flutter but Steve Steinhardt is here to throw that theory to the wind. Not only are his color images insanely gorgeous but his black-and-white images will blow your mind.
