SCROLL TO BEGIN

DOCUMENTING THE poetry of people THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHS. 

Steph|Masat

St. Louis wedding photographer

Photographer | Creator | visual Stories

 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. 


Being present over being 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 and feeling deeply 

...to celebrate and get wild on the dance floor well into the night. 

...embrace all the little details of your story. 

...to KNOW that your wedding photos are going to be extraordinary and nothing will be missed. 

...to look and feel your best self and have a photographer who understands how to make that happen.

 - That's how we do things here.

She made us both feel so calm and comfortable and truly captured all of the moments that made our day so special." 

"From the second she walked in the door of the hotel to the magnificent hug before she left, Stephenie immediately felt like family. 

"IT HAS BEEN AN ABSOLUTE JOY TO WORK WITH STEPHENIE FOR OUR WEDDING. 

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."

"WITH STEPH, YOU GET SO MUCH MORE THAN PRETTY PHOTOS. YOU GET HER PERSONALITY. HER HEART. HER CREATIVITY. 

And you get the REAL you and your REAL emotions in those gorgeous photographs. 
Do yourself a favor...HIRE HER!"

Kind Words

Here's my attempt to help you get to know me in a couple sentences or less. My admittedly long winded story is on the page linked below if you're curious to get to know me more deeply. 

In a nutshell, I'm a 30 something, wife and mom of 2 little girls. I love quiet moments on my couch, zoning out to a good record, tending my many house plants, exploring coffee shops on rainy days and the classic BBC crime show (can't get enough of those). 

The humans who hire me to photograph their special moments say I'm super easy to be around, my husband says I'm stubborn ;), and my friends say I'm empathic and thoughtful. I genuinely hope they are all true.

I'm steph Masat
