Steve and Andy getting ready.
Brooklyn-based wedding, portrait and event photographer Steven Rosen was a PDN Top Knots wedding photography winner for 2013. His first place win in Top Knots was the first time an image of a same sex couple has taken a prize in this competition. "I've seen some same sex couples represented as finalists, but not as winners," says Rosen. The award-winning photographer creates images for both editorial and individual clients. While he shoots all types of weddings, he specializes in same sex weddings. Rosen has a background in illustration, painting, jewelry design and book design, and uses his years of training and experience in art and design to inform his photography.
