Steven Jackson is the founder of Moon & Back, a wedding film and photography company that works all over the world. Steve’s beautiful work captures both his passion for what he does and the beauty of each location. It’s inspiring work that really speaks to how travel can inspire and elevate the moments in our lives.

But it’s been worth the wait, with Steve creating a job that takes him all over the world. We had a quick chat with Steve to get his views on travel and how it has inspired him personally.
