I'm steph, have we met?

Hi! I’m Steph and I'd love to get to know the real you, care for your needs, and spoil you rotten.

To me, wedding photography goes far beyond something to share on social media. It's the culmination of the years you've already devoted to each other, and the promise of so many more.

Real wedding photography is capturing authentic: 

I BELIEVE IN the purest form of love.

When I’m not behind a camera lens my time is best spent with my three cutie pie kiddos and my poodle. They drive me to get creative with my art, erase complacency, and put on my best impression of an absolute perfectionist with everything that I do.

 

AS YOU'LL NOTICE,

My photography influences like Henri Cartier-Bresson, Richard Avedon, and Annie Liebovitz taught me how to capture micro-bits of life, flickers of fate, and glimpses of eternal happiness without asking anybody to say “cheese”. 



I’d love to get to know you and your love story.

Hello, friend!

So let's chat.
