About Steven Branstetter


  • I love photographing using real film and it brings me back to my childhood—film is authentic and rich–and I love the anticipation of the film to be developed.
  • I’m a native San Franciscan, can you believe it? We still exist!  Although I have lived in Los Angeles and Brooklyn, I now am settled back in the Bay Area with my amazing wife and lovely 2 daughters.  
  • I am into classic story telling, French cinema, and art, and get super psyched when couples channel their inner black and white movie star vibe for the camera.

Steven, I just saw our wedding photos and I’m bawling right now! You’re so respectful, artistic, creative, and all around amazing. You really know how to tell a story with your camera. Thank you SO much!!!

Steven, You provided phenomenal services for both our engagement and day-of photo shoots. We feel like you really captured the mood of the day. We especially loved all of the “little moments” we got back. You were like a ninja, getting those moments we didn’t even know you were photographing! 🙂 Thank you so much!!!

Steven you really told our story with your camera. Our candid shots came out amazing! We can’t thank you enough for being there. It fills our hearts with joy whenever we look at our wedding photographs. I really feel how I felt in those moments when I look at them. Thank you!!!

Steven, I don’t have enough good things to say about having you as our photographer! Thanks to you, we have memories of our wedding day that we’ll cherish forever!
