Welcome to my blog and thanks for stopping by!
I hope you'll enjoy your stay and enjoy the photos.
Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
I am an artist holding a Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts with more than twelve years experience in photography, fine art, restoration and graphic design (brochures,logos,book covers,page layout, posters, business card, flyers, calendars,ads,direct mail, menus, collages and more).
Yes... I love graphic design... and I have a passion for it just like the rest of the world.
I use three different Adobe programs in order to archive the professional results.
For retouching and adjusting images, colors, enhancements and photo manipulations I used Adobe Photoshop.
To create vector images as logos or illustrations I used Adobe Illustrator.
I use Adobe InDesign to laying out printed materials such as: posters, brochures, business cards, book covers, flyers, collages, postcards, direct mail, menus, mailers and advertising flyers.
I have been asked many times about selling limited edition photographs.
So, each print is signed and numbered verso and delivered unframed and unmated. I ship all prints, (along with a certificate of authenticity), rolled, in a heavy duty shipping tube fully insured.
All images are available for sale and most of them can be printed to sizes up to 37" x 48". If you have question, please do not hesitate to contact me for details.

Boy, seems like yesterday I took this picture and it’s been two years now. I always like the candid shoots before the wedding ceremony when bride and groom get dress and family, friends and guests get all together. Each time when I book a wedding, brides tell me they don’t care too much about “getting dress” shoots. I always explain to them, before ceremony is a good time to introduce myself and my assistant and take some of the best candid shoots. Before ceremony I like to sneak between guests and family and try to catch some of the best moments. I always tell people "I test the light and equipment" and they shouldn’t look at the camera but most of them become curios and then is when they become familiar with the camera and photographer. Let’s face it: who likes to have his or her picture taken at a wedding? Is not enough that you are attending the wedding? Now you have to sit still in front of a guy who looks like a “paparazzi?” The answer is in more than 10 years of shooting weddings I have a few guys who wanted to be in all pictures.
This shoot was one of them: the best man told me up front” buddy don’t even think you’ll get a picture with me because I’m don’t like it” but he was willing to pose when I wasn’t around him. When he was getting ready to walk down the aisle I took this shoot: the rings were folded in a tissue. I showed him the pictures, he liked what he saw and he became “my buddy” at the wedding.
The annual Wedding Professional Hot List recognizes excellence within the wedding industry, as determined by reviews from tens of thousands of brides and grooms. Dorin Stef was among the best reviewed vendors in their area in the past year.
"The Wedding Professional Hot List recognizes best of class wedding professionals." said Geoff Evason, MomentVille's CEO. "Highlighting the success of the top wedding professionals is an exciting way to spread the word and help newly engaged couples find the right professionals for their own weddings."
