*Now in our 11th Year of Wedding Photography !

-- It was my grandmother who gave me my first camera on
my 9th birthday....

-- 10 years later,  I decided to become a
professional
photojournalist  
while Majoring in Art and Psychology in
College -

-- After years of freelancing for the Associated Press and
United Press International,  I became a staff photographer
with New Jersey's largest newspaper,
 The Star-Ledger,
where I worked for  2 decades,  most of those years as a
bureau photographer in western NJ.

--            
 23 - Photography Awards,  including:

--    " Best of Show "  -  in the very competitive
New York Press Photographers Assoc.

--   Seven -  1st Place awards.. - NY-PPA -  NJ-PPA -  NJPA -

--   Several  - 2nd and 3rd  places     -  in  above contests....

--  Member  of the Star-Ledger Team,  winning the ;
2005  -   PULITZER PRIZE -    Staff Award   for Breaking News....

-- And,  most recently,  placing in the Top sixteen in  
an  INTERNATIONAL WEDDING PHOTO CONTEST:
"DETAILS"   category

-- When a very generous buy-out offer was made to all
staffers,  I decided to leave the newspaper business, and
eventually formed
 STEVE  KLAVER  PHOTOS  LLC ,
based in Easton,  Pennsylvania.
"My style of photography
is
candid
photojournalism  since I
have years of experience
doing  just that.

As most photographers
would admit,  a good
photojournalist must be
able to make prize-winning
images with any and all
subject matter,  going in
with absolutely no
pre-planning at all.

This style of image-
gathering is what most
families like in their photo
albums.

You will see perfectionist
results in the photos I
make for you."
