Named Best of Northern Virginia Wedding Photographer of 2018 by Northern Virginia Magazine
I photograph the stories of couples who love big adventures and little details; couples who know the value of embracing old traditions and the thrill of creating their own; couples who believe that their wedding is about more than just a day of celebration, but a lifetime of love.
Real love is a big deal. And for the couples that I have the joy of working with, so is their wedding photography. At the end of your big day, other than that new lifelong partner in crime you’ve hitched yourself to, your photos are all that you get to take with you. That makes your wedding photography decision a pretty important one. I believe that your photographer should be someone you trust wholeheartedly and can be completely comfortable with; sorta like your BFF but with a big ol’ camera. I strive to not just take photos, but build relationships with each of my couples, learning and capturing your unique connection and love. So let’s do this. Let’s tell your love story together. I can’t wait to hear from you.
My main goal, aside from documenting some of the biggest moments of your lives, is allowing you to be completely present on your wedding day. In addition to hours of pre-wedding consultation, assistance in crafting the perfect timeline, and guidance on building a great team of vendors (who will feel more like friends!), I offer:

Obsessed with our photos.
The first time we met Steph, we felt like she was an old friend. We hired her after the first meeting – we just knew – it felt like we had met our soulmate in a wedding photographer. Fast-forward to 1-month post-wedding, we still love her like family. She is responsive, caring, and stress-free: something you need on your special day! Steph captures your heart and soul in the photos she takes. The colors are very “real” and somehow embodies how you’re feeling that day. This is how we wanted to remember our engagement and our wedding day – those exact feelings. Every time we look through our engagement and wedding photos, the feelings are overwhelming as it takes you back to that day and that time in your life. Needless and we’ll let the pictures speak for themselves: we are obsessed with our wedding photos. Steph is fun-loving and easy to work with. She has a great smile, great laugh, and makes you feel comfortable doing unnatural walks/poses. She was a huge part of our wedding day (obviously) but it didn’t feel like she was just the photographer – her heart and soul was in it. She invests in her couples and truly takes the time to get to know you but in an authentic way because she actually cares about who she photographs. Booking Steph was by far the best choice we made for our wedding and I will recommend her endlessly.Sent on 12/22/2019

Stephanie was recommended to us by a friend and we couldn't have had a better experience! She offers two simple packages, both of which include an engagement session, 2 photographers, 8 hours of coverage, a website with easy to access and downloadable photos. Stephanie is personable, makes you feel at ease and took AMAZING photos of our wedding!! I loved how responsive and accommodating she was and how easy it was to work with her. She captured a wide range of photos- posed, as well as candids and was so accommodating of requests. She was timely, responsive and so sweet! We loved that the photos were available on a website where you can view them, order photos (very very good quality ones) easily, or download them. Her photography skills are unrivaled and she was our first and easiest wedding decision.Sent on 09/11/2016

100% A+ Photographer
Stephanie is someone every bride would want at their wedding. Not only does she capture those random unforgettable candid moments, she is a JOY to have around especially on a day as full of excitement as your wedding day. She is someone that you would want to be friends with even after your wedding. Her caring attitude really comes through, from the initial introduction to her follow up emails and texts to the last details of your wedding. She is 100% A+ champ at what she does and just an amazing human being as well. Well worth the cost, she goes out of her way to follow up on details to make capture the most 'you' of your day. With out a doubt the best of the best.Sent on 05/11/2020
We had the pleasure of working alongside Stephanie at a wedding in September of 2017. Stephanie was an absolute joy to be around and work with. Her willingness to work together (she was the photographer and we were the videographers on this day) and ensure that the couple was well taken care of on both of our ends was amazing. Stephanie worked with us to ensure that we were able to have time with the couple to get our footage for their film throughout the day without question. We even had a Google Hangouts call with Stephanie weeks before the wedding to game plan on the timeline and our angles to capture the necessary photographs/footage for the day. We recommend Stephanie and her team.
Stephanie is an extremely talented photographer who offers a great value to her customers. Her packages are affordable and the service is along the lines of photographers who charge double. Highly recommended!
Always amazing! She captures the most beautiful moments and tells the amazing story of your wedding day.
