About

Your wedding day should be about your marriage, your relationship and your love for each other. It's not about being so stressed out that you can't enjoy your day.

I'm so much more than a photographer when I photograph a wedding. Sometimes I'm a chaos coordinator, a groomsmen wrangler and a dress bustler. It's not my style to be a fly on the wall. I get in the middle of the action and capture your wedding day authentically, with all of its emotions, excitement and all of the moments and close-up details that you might not even get to see.

My work is not just about photographing your wedding but creating images that tell your story and capture your love for each other. And my specialty is night photography and off camera flash. I love creating light and I love using available light to make things magical.

I have been a photographer since 2008, focusing on weddings since 2016 and in that time I have shot 130 weddings. Everything from a couple in a courthouse to 300 guests at a large venue and no wedding parties to 20 person wedding parties. I love them all and treat them all as if they are million dollar budgets, no matter what. My favorite thing about weddings is that they are all unique.

I would love to talk to you about YOUR big day!

Our officiant recommended Stephanie to us and I can鈥檛 thank her enough! She鈥檚 fantastic, I added an additional hour to our package the day before the wedding and she was so flexible about it and it just lifted a weight off my shoulders. Her and Faith were so helpful the day of working with our videographer on the wedding party, detail, and family photos. By far my favorite thing she did though was before she left at the end of the night she surprised us with a little photo book of Polaroid shots she snuck in throughout the day. They were beautiful and perfect and I鈥檒l cherish them for the rest of my life. I can鈥檛 wait to see how the rest of the photos turned out!

Stephanie is amazing!!!

I can鈥檛 say enough about Stephanie and her team! Stephanie is highly communicative, organized, and enthusiastic about her job. You can tell that she genuinely wants to make your experience great and leave you with photos that you鈥檒l love forever, and she did just that. She made sure all of my needs as a bride were met while also being efficient and flexible. She was willing to meet with me several times to make sure we were on the same page with every aspect of the schedule and my priorities. Stephanie truly captured each part of my wedding day and made me feel like a beautiful bride! And the pictures are STUNNING. I鈥檓 so glad I went with Stephanie and her team, I highly recommend to anyone!

Owner/Lead Photographer

I'm a wedding photographer based in Columbus, Ohio but I live out in the country in Fairfield County. First and foremost I'm the mom of 4, ages 9, 11, 13 and 18. And I'm a dog mom :)

My style is very authentic, modern and I love creating fine art portraits. I love light; capturing it, creating it, bouncing it and changing it. A beautiful, textured sky really gets me going and I love using my flashes to create timeliness, unique portraits for my couples!
