Steph was a complete and total godsend. I could not be happier we chose her to capture our big day. She’s undoubtedly the most prepared person I’ve ever met. She’s incredibly personable and it felt like we’ve known each other forever - that is a hard quality to have. She’s extremely detail oriented and creative. The fact that she still takes time to reach out to us and continue our relationship is unheard of and means so much.

"She’s undoubtedly the most prepared person I’ve ever met. She’s incredibly personable and it felt like we’ve known each other forever - that is a hard quality to have."

Stephanie is the most kind hearted, thoughtful, well spoken, business women I have ever met. I had no idea what I was doing when I was trying to find my wedding photographer and once I found Stephanie she answered all of my questions and never once made me feel like I was being a burden. When I booked Stephanie I gained a life long friend in my life. She is so dedicated to her work and genuinely LOVES to photograph people, their love, and edit the photos to the 9’s. If you are looking for ANY type of photographer Stephanie is the one you want. She’s simply amazing

Where to even begin? Here’s the review to tell you- YES, BOOK WITH STEPHANIE because she will not disappoint. Stephanie is the most genuine person you will ever meet- she is so personable and makes you feel so so special. Just by looking at our pictures, you would never know that the day was so cold and windy. Steph made us feel so comfortable and we had so much fun. She captured our one-year anniversary photos so perfectly and we cannot wait to have her capture more!

If you’re considering booking with Steph you’ve already won. She is absolutely incredible on all fronts — so much care and thought is put into every one of her shoots. I personally have a degree in art and design and I truly feel that Steph’s editing style and posing create a timeless aesthetic that most photographers just cannot replicate. Can’t wait to shoot with her again!
