Looking for your wedding photographer?

It's easy to get lost in the middle of wedding planning. To ask yourself "Why are we doing this?" Your wedding day is all about you. It's not about the photos or the perfect center pieces. It's about your story, your future, your past and your love. Gosh, the freedom you have to make it look like you want - it's amazing.

about us

Jamie + Ray

"If you want your photo shoot to feel like you are just hanging out with a friend but get amazing pictures after then Stephenie is the way to go! She has a way of making you feel super comfortable and is able to capture images that really showcase your relationship with your significant other. If having photos of yourself makes you nervous then Stephenie is the photographer you want shooting your photos. You will not be disappointed with your experience or your photos, she’s the best!"

Kristina + Taylor

"Stephenie is AMAZING!! My husband and I were so nervous but she makes you feel comfortable right away. She also obviously has the most beautiful photos! We LOVED working with Stephenie and would highly recommend her. Can't wait to find an excuse to do pictures again!"

Milena & Eric

"Stephenie's services were simply amazing & exceeded our expectations. She was so creative, flexible, down-to-earth, and detail oriented in her work, as well as a joy to be around! We absolutely love every one of our photos and will cherish them forever. Thank you Stephenie for making our day memorable in a fashion that was so fun, intimate, relaxed and, made us feel comfortable within our own skin- we could not be more grateful!!"

Saida + Dan

"Amazing person and incredibly talented photographer. Went over and beyond for us on our wedding day and engagement session. Stephenie never made us feel like clients but as old friends, that’s the magic to her incredible photography skills. I’m glad we chose Stephenie to capture our special day. Can’t wait for her to capture the other milestones in our life’s. Thank’s Stephenie!"
