Meeting all Your photographic needs
About Us

    Our photographer makes all attempts to provide you with the highest quality of photographs by providing a relaxed atmosphere, be it at your location or ours. We use the latest technology to get high quality at an affordable price. This technology allows us to fix minor flaws or for you to be placed any where in this world or out, all while in the comfort of your own home or just our studio. Want a photo of you under the Eifel tower? No problem we can do it.

Customer Service:
    Unlike our competitors we can take the studio to you. This allows our clients to feel very comfortable and relaxed. In turn this relaxed, comfortable state show up in the finished prints. No more forced smiles or stiff looks just the a real picture of you or your family. We still are able to provide the quality that you would find in our studio or one of our competitors.  We can still allow you to preview the print so there are no surprises when you get your final prints.
Fair Pricing:
    We differ from most photographic studios in that as long as you come to our studio we Do Not charge a sitting fee at this time.  The reason behind this is a simple one. We cannot compete with studios like Sears or Walmart on print price. We can reduce the overall cost for your memories by not charging you for our time as they do. However I do have to charge a small fee if I come to your location to offset my travel expense.  This is not to say we are not competitively priced we are, and also of the highest quality.

Connelly’s Candids is a family run business. My wife and I, Jamie and Steve Connelly, personally handle each client's services and requests. You will meet and speak with the actual photographer before the day of your special event.

I've been taking photographs for the past three and a half decades. Photography has been a passion of mine since my childhood. I've grown from taking family pictures with my 35mm camera given to me by my father, to being a photographer for my high school yearbook, photographing friends and family. The support of my wonderful wife turned out to be the push I needed to pursue a dream. I am working at something that I love to do.

I do photographic portraits (individuals, families, children, and pets), engagement pictures, wedding photography, or other special occasions. I can come to you so you can feel more relaxed in your own home, office, or location that is special to you. I have high resolution digital SLR's, various lenses, backdrops, reflectors, flashes, and studio lights. I  am anxious to continually build my list of satisfied clients. If all the rushing around and excitement of preparing for your special event has given you tired eyes or blemished your skin, I can help. I have the ability to provide special "touch-ups" to the pictures.
