Can't wait to hear from you!

I believe that being a wedding photographer is about more than just taking beautiful photos.

I believe it’s about showing up as a friend on your wedding day. Holding your veil as you walk to meet your groom for your first look. Wiping back tears as your dad walks you down the aisle. Hugging your mom as she watches you dance with your new husband at your reception.

I believe it's one of the greatest honors to be invited in to one of the most special days of your life.

my philosophy

this is my why.

My style has been called authentic, heartfelt, personal, and organic. It's a mix between editorial (capturing all the details you worked so hard on), and documentary (seizing the in-between, those moments that not everyone sees.

The way a father tears up the first time he sees his daughter in her wedding dress. The grandmother who dances with the flower girl. The groom as he kisses his bride’s shoulder as they greet guests.) 

I capture the joy of your wedding day in timeless photographs.

my style

joyful, heartfelt

My couples are laid-back and more excited about being married than anything else.

They are joyous and heartfelt and care about each other and those around them. 

They love being close, they love having fun, they can rest together and act silly together and dance together and don't ever stop dating one another.

your investment

I want to be the photographer that shows up as a friend on your wedding day. We'll go out for coffee, I'll send you good old-fashioned snail mail, and you'll be comfortable in front of my camera well before the day of your wedding. I'm goofy and silly and a bit clumsy and you'll definitely see all of that during our journey together. 

But I'll also relieve any stress you have on your wedding day, run any errands you need, and give you a great big hug when I see you because I am so excited for you. 

There is nothing like being invited into the most intimate and special day of your life. As a wedding photographer, I am with you nearly every second of the day, and I consider it a true honor to be the one to tell your story. I can't wait to capture your joy and the beginning of your legacy.

When your wedding day comes, I'll show up as a friend and take in everything I can so you can relive it later.


I'm so glad you're here.

More about me


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. 

 They truly care with their whole hearts!
I will treasure my pictures for a lifetime.

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.

kind words

from wonderful couples

I knew I wanted Stephanie as my photographer because I knew she’d be a joy to be around and would make US 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. 


She was so amazing to work with and made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Her sweet words and compliments made me feel so special! The photographs from our wedding day are ones I will cherish forever.

I never thought that when I found a wedding photographer, I would also be finding a friend. Steph is so kind and genuine and her passion for capturing love can be easily seen in her amazing work! 


Steph took me for coffee and we got to sit and get to know each other. She really connected with me, she made me feel so excited about my wedding and by the end of our coffee date I wanted her to be my best friend! 

When our wedding day came around, we didn't feel like we had a random stranger at our wedding taking our pictures, we really knew Steph!

We couldn't have asked for a more thoughtful and real photographer to capture our special day.
