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.

Stefy did our engagement shoot in Neeport and wedding in New York. She was wonderful with an attention to detail in creating our special story beyond our wildest dreams. We were blown away and so lucky to have found her. She truly captured the magic of our fairy tale day. All the photos were wonderful and for those getting married in Newport, photos featuring the Castie Hill Lightgouse were some of our favorites.Sent on 12/21/2018

If I could give 6 stars for Stefy I would. My wife and I first heard the name "Stefy" while searching for the perfect wedding venue in upstate NY. We just happened to look through the venue's wedding book filled with pictures of various photographers. Every single picture my wife and I liked the most were ones she photographed. We knew we had to have her for our wedding. We contacted her as quickly as we could to ensure she wasn't booked. We then started the process to book the NY venue and shortly thereafter had a change of heart with it. We then went full steam ahead to another local NY place with plans to marry there, but something didn't feel right with it. In the end, we found a wonderful place near our home in PA where Stefy didn't hesitate to travel to. She literally captured some of the best "Dam!" wedding pictures you'll see. I say all of this because no matter how many locations (and states) we thought about getting married, no matter the fact our wedding venue changed the night before due to unforeseen weather safety concerns, Stefy was with us the entire step of the way. We could not have asked for not only the best photographer, but a person who became part of the family. Along with Jeff Tisman who assisted her but by no means is an assistant, he, like Stefy, is an artist. This winning photography team made us feel even more important than the Royal Wedding who was married on the same day (5.19.18). We can't thank Stefy enough for being her, for being a personable person, for being a creative soul, and for making us feel special. We cannot wait to see the finished wedding photos because the teaser photos were awesome!Sent on 06/14/2018
