I'm Steph.

it's nice to meet you

I love my sweet little family, thunderstorms, and fireworks. You'll probably always see me wearing a hat and tassel earrings, because they're so fun! I strive for simplicity and peace in all things, and capturing your joy makes me the happiest.

Afternoon naps with my daughter, with the windows open and the breeze just cold enough to wrap the covers up tight.

Adventures with my stepson, climbing trees and exploring trails and throwing rocks in water.

Date nights with my husband, holding hands and sitting next to each other and making each other laugh until we cry.

Best friend dates that start with coffee and end with shopping or drinks and are riddled with laughter.

This is my joy.

My joy is the time I spend with the people I love. And laughter. Lots and lots of laughter.

In all things, creating joy.

Coffee in New Orleans

Always in a hat

Love them the most!

next review

I knew when I started planning my wedding, I wanted to work with a photographer who made me feel comfortable and truly loved what they did!

After choosing Steph, her contagious smile and amazing work confirmed that she was the perfect fit! I could go on and on about her kind spirit, encouraging words, and stress free attitude during each shoot, but we all know the day that matters is the wedding day.

Steph and her team were AMAZING! They not only captured every detail perfectly, but the way they treated my friends and family during the whole process says a lot about the type of people they are. They truly care with their whole hearts! I will treasure my pictures for a lifetime and will continue to rave about Steph long after my wedding day! :)

The best couples.
The kindest words.

I met Stephanie through a wedding I was a bridesmaid in–and I remember her connecting so well with me even though I was just a bridesmaid! When I got engaged 6 months later, I knew I wanted Stephanie as my photographer not only because of her amazing pictures that are so real and bright, but also because I knew she’d be a joy to be around and would make Daniel and I feel so comfortable on our big day! Little did I know, she would actually become a friend in the process as well.

Stephanie does a great job of connecting with her clients and she really does have a passion for weddings and that’s so obvious when you’re around her. I definitely couldn’t have picked a more perfect photographer! Also, my wedding album is incredible and I know I’ll cherish it for the rest of my life! Can’t thank you enough, Stephanie!

Where do I begin?! From the first time we connected – over FaceTime which was SO nice to not just email back and forth – I knew she cared more about Al and I than anything else. She wanted the pictures to be beautiful but also wanted our day to be perfect!

Her patience throughout the day, ability to make me feel so normal taking posed photos, and sense of humor allowed Al and I to only have to think about each other during our wedding.

Her smile is infectious – which helps you to smile through your sometimes awkward moments (Al and I are terrible at kissing in photos and taking it seriously). Not only do I love her style of photography, her talent is just the beginning of the amazing person she is!
