Hi! I'm Stephanie.
I am Kentucky born, now residing in Truckee, California. I am madly in love with photography, the outdoors, traveling, my other half Jeff & our sweet ol'pup Brody. Wedding photography lights my fire! I absolutely adore capturing the pure love between two people.
I love leaving my photo sessions feeling like I just left an evening hanging out with friends. I want you to be comfortable and enjoy your session! Just be in the moment with your love...
Email me, ask me anything! I can't wait to meet you!

Steph was absolutely amazing!! We could not have found a better photographer for our special day. She made our day stress free and full of laughs. Her locations for our photos were perfect and she was more than patient with our extremely windy day. My husband was sick with the flu and even had a fever but you would never know it looking through all of the moments she captured. Steph felt like a friend and a guest more than a photographer which fit great with our laid back cozy wedding. Planning a wedding from across the country can be more than stressful but she was there every step of the way even recommending other vendors! I highly recommend Shines Photography and can't wait for her to do our family pictures on our next trip to Tahoe. LOVE LOVE LOVE!Sent on 01/21/2018

Intimate April Wedding
Do not hesitate and book today! After looking at several photographer websites and obsessing over the decision, all it took was one phone call with Steph and I knew we were making the right decision. She is professional, a pleasure to work with, and incredibly fun and laid back. We were lucky enough to meet her in person two days before our destination wedding and we had the best time. The day of our wedding was so relaxed and easy with her there. After our dinner party, we received three sneak peeks that just blew us away and we couldn't wait for more! For the weeks following our wedding day, we continued to receive little sneak peeks that brought us back to our perfect day. Once we received our full gallery of photos, we couldn't believe how lucky we were to have such beautiful keepsakes of our wedding day - even the packaging was so special! Hire Steph for your wedding and you will not be disappointed!Sent on 05/19/2019

Of the hundreds of photographers I’ve worked with over the years as a DJ, Shines Photography is by far my favorite. Stephanie brings a wonderful energy with her, and coupled with her amazing talent and professionalism, she’s the full package! If you are looking for quality and the best photographer there is, then without a doubt Shines Photograohy is your best option! I look forward to doing many more weddings with Stephanie over our professional careers.
