serving ALL humans - no matter 

Being PRESENT over perfectly planned, the sound of your best friends clinking glasses, CELEBRATING you two, getting wild on the dance floor well into the night,...
HUGGING tightly, feeling deeply 

- that's how we do things here 

 When working with me, you can expect me to celebrate you, to encourage you to sit in the moment, to ease you into natural posing while photographing so you don't feel or look uncomfortable, to calmly love on you on your wedding day, quietly taking care of details and documenting your favorite people, and to get down on the dance floor to the always effortless, Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance".   

My work has blossomed out of my desire to love on humans and show them their value and dignity in this world. Out of that bloom comes friendship, comfortability in front of the camera and images that look and feel like you. You'll never be asked to be something you're not. You and your lover and your story are beautiful, just the way it is.
 You're welcome here, I hope you stay awhile.

c'mon in, let me tell you a story

Green Wedding Shoes


She has such a calm, welcoming and confident presence that immediately puts you at ease and makes you feel like you've known each other forever. My husband and I are awkward when it comes to being in front of the camera, but looking through our wedding gallery, I'm amazed by what she was able to capture. She allows you to be yourself and doesn't try to control or pose every single little thing - her approach allows you to feel comfortable when taking photos and later on when viewing her work you can not only see, but also feel the genuineness of the moments she has captured.

"It has been an absolute JOY to work with Steph for our wedding."


Steph far exceeded our expectations and photographed our day more beautifully than we could have even imagined! We are forever grateful to have these beautiful memories to cherish. We look forward to Steph photographing the next big moments in our lives ;) We contacted more photographers than we care to remember, but we noticed the difference with Steph right away. Her professionalism, organization, and genuine kindness and concern shined through the entire process. She responded so quickly and answered all our questions while provided sound advice, including creating our wedding day timeline!

"Hiring Steph to photograph our engagement and wedding was the BEST DECISION we made during the entire wedding planning process!
