I was born and raised in Europe. My family and I came to the U.S. ten years ago. Next to taking pictures, I love hiking, biking and playing tennis. My favorite tea is Chai Tea Latte and there is no day without chocolate. I believe dogs are really humans and that everything happens for a reason.
Photography has always been my passion and a perfect way to express the way I look at life. I was professionally trained in Europe, I worked and traveled the world as a photojournalist, event and wedding photographer. My camera is a mirror, capturing emotions and special moments to relive them for years to come. A way to look at the world. You can find beauty in everything and everyone.
During my 20 year career, I was privileged to photograph a wide range of diverse personalities. From street musicians to CEO's. Scientists to Beauty Queens, Politicians to Models. But nothing compares to a wedding day. Picturing the love and emotions between two people is fascinating. It is very special to me and I love every single part of it.
You can see my work published in Germany, Switzerland, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Spain, France, and the U.S.
Please feel free to call or email at any time. I am looking forward to meet you.

Stefy is simply amazing.Sent on 06/11/2018
I proposed to my fiance at our favorite restaurant in Newport, RI and wanted to be sure to properly capture the moment. After reviewing a number of local options online I created a shortlist and called each to check availability and make sure our styles and visions were in line with one another. After speaking with Stefy it was easy to make my decision.
Stefy's talent and vision made the engagement unforgettable. She arrived early on site (which was immensely appreciated), framed each shot ahead of time to make sure the reaction was caught properly, and even went as far as to coordinate the room and the staff in the restaurant to be sure everything was perfect. After I proposed she walked with us through Newport and lent us her creative eye to help us further commemorate our engagement.
If I could give Stefy higher reviews I would. I own a wedding venue near Philadelphia and have seen many photographers over time; Stefy's dedication to excellence and raw talent make her one of the best I've worked with. She's positive, upbeat, and extremely easy to work with. Five stars all the way.

Worth every penny
Stefy is truly incredible! Beyond talented in her craft. Captured our Wedding on the Aquidneck Sailboat with grace and ease. Thought of everything from wind to lighting, all while suspending herself from ropes and laying on the floor of the boat, to get the best angles. She even captured great shots of our tiny bow wow bearers...a difficult task on a moving sailboat. She's an incredibly gifted artist and we couldn't have been more grateful to have her apart of our day. Very professional in communicating throughout the entire process, in an extremely prompt manor. We could not believe how quickly she completed our photos. We had a preview by 9am the morning after our wedding and the entire gallery was complete shortly after. Do yourself a favor and hire Stefy! It will be the best decision you make...know if was for us :)Sent on 08/21/2019
