With a heart full of artistry and a keen eye for beauty, my approach to wedding photography goes beyond just capturing smiles and poses. I strive to capture the fleeting emotions and sensations that make up your special day, to freeze those moments in time so that you can relive them for years to come. Every image is a work of art that tells your love story with grace, elegance, and authenticity.
From the moment you reach out to me, my goal is to make you and your partner feel seen and valued. I believe that capturing beautiful photos is only part of my job; my true purpose is to provide a bespoke, personalized experience that reflects the unique nature of your love story.
Whether you need a sounding board for your ideas or a steady hand to guide you through the planning process, I am here to support you every step of the way. You are not just another entry in my calendar – you are a cherished friend, and we will build a connection that goes beyond wedding photography.
If you are looking for the ordinary, I am not the photographer for you. I specialize in capturing the raw, honest, and unfiltered moments that make up your special day – the tears, the laughter, the windswept hair, and the almost-kisses. Together, we will create images that are as unique and beautiful as your love, leaving you with a gallery that will be cherished for a lifetime.
My wedding packages are designed to give you flexibility and choice, so that you can create a package that truly reflects your unique love story. Between your desired coverage time, a second shooter, and engagement session, we can work together to create the perfect package that suits your preferences.
My elopement packages are designed to capture the beauty and intimacy of your special day, whether you're saying your vows on a mountaintop or in a city park. From the initial consultation to the final delivery of your images, I'm here to ensure that your elopement photography experience is seamless and enjoyable.
Whether you're getting married in the stunning scenery of Lake Como or having a simple city hall elopement, I am always excited to travel to capture your unique story. To ensure that there are no hidden costs, I calculate travel costs based on the location of your wedding or elopement.
I believe that every couple deserves a personalized and bespoke wedding photography experience, no matter where their wedding day takes place. If you're interested in learning more about my travel policies and costs, please don't hesitate to inquire. I'm always here to answer any questions you may have and help you create a wedding photography experience that is unforgettable.

"We don't even know where to begin. We're amazed. We're speechless. We're so thankful that we had Stephanie photograph our day. From the resources she sent when we first reached out, to her calming presence on the wedding day, to the photos we'll get to cherish for a lifetime...words simply don't do it justice. Stephanie captured our day exactly how it happened and I think that's what we love most about our photos. They quite literally bring us back to each part of our favorite day ever. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
Liz & Luke

You played such a huge role in the flow of the day, were so calm, and made it easy and fun for everyone involved! Thank you so much for your hard work on our day and all that goes into it behind the scenes!"

""You are incredible!!!!!! We are in love with these -- they are better than we ever could have imagined. You are so talented, Stephanie, and we had so much fun working with you. We got compliments from multiple family members saying how wonderful of a job you did capturing our day without interrupting the natural flow of it, and we couldn't agree more. Wow, you are the best. I think I will most likely look at these every day until forever."
As a dedicated artist, I strive to deliver sneak peeks of your special day within 24-48 hours. However, please note that delivery times may vary depending on the season and current workload. Within 6-12 weeks of your special day, I will provide you with a stunning high-resolution online gallery, showcasing your beautifully edited images.
As an industry standard, an average of 50 edited images per hour is expected. However, I am passionate about exceeding expectations and delivering an abundance of beautifully edited images. There is no limit to the amount of images you will receive, but 600-1200 is average dependent on the amount of coverage.
For local celebrations, travel fees apply when applicable. This includes a fee of 62.5 cents per mile after the first 100 miles, or the cost of airfare and lodging for two nights for celebrations that are three or more hours away.
A 30% deposit is required to secure your booking and can be easily paid through your client portal. The remaining balance is due 30 days before your special day, broken into 3-5 installment payments.
As a professional photographer, I take the utmost care in protecting your cherished memories. My backup process is extensive, including the use of dual SD cards and immediate backup to two secure locations. All images are kept safe until delivery of your gallery.
I believe that photography is not complete until it is printed and displayed as a work of art. While you have the freedom to print your images at any location of your choosing, I offer several high-quality print shops that I highly recommend.
Absolutely! Film photography has a timeless, classic feel that cannot be replicated by digital images. I include 1-2 rolls in each of my wedding packages, and additional rolls can be added onto any of my wedding and elopement packages.
