Regardless of the season that you're in, and whether your babies are big, small or furry, this time in your life deserves to be captured by something other than your iPhone. Family sessions were born from past wedding couples asking us to document their growing families and now we just can't get enough!
We love creating photos to remind families that in spite of the fact that the car of their floor is covered in cereal, their laundry room looks like an episode of hoarders and mom and dad are in a permanent state of exhaustion, their love and their story are beautiful.
So let's plan a day, pick a location that is meaningful to you and create a slew of images that will fill up the frames your walls for years to come.
Couples Sessions are one of our favorite things to capture! We lovingly joke it's like a fun date night for you two, with me as the third wheel hanging out. Engagement, maternity, anniversary, or just for fun - let's do it!

I’m also a photographer, so I’m a bit picky with who I hire but I could not have been happier with the photos Stephanie was able to capture for me and my husband! She is professional, fun, and a true artist. I’ve also worked with her on different shoots and I am always amazed at what she creates! She is more than just a photographer. She is a visionary, and she puts so much heart and soul into everything she does. She is so extremely talented and easy to work with. She actually truly cares about her clients! And on top of all that, you will get absolutely gorgeous photos from her! So happy my path crossed with hers!
Working with Stephanie was such a great experience!

If you are looking for beautiful photography and a fun session experience, you must hire her. My husband and I have worked with several photographers for sessions over the years, and the direction and posing assistance Stephanie provided was unmatched. In addition, Stephanie also made us feel super comfortable and relaxed, which is SO important in a photographer (and only the really good ones are skilled in this area!). We worked with Stephanie for a couples'/branding session, and we ended up liking some of the photos even better than our wedding photography. We can't wait to work with her again and again!
We love Stephanie!"

I've worked with her twice and I'm always mind-blown by how beautiful her work is! We even held a lifestyle session during a light drizzle and this session was my absolute favorite! It looks funny and Stephanie had such a positive demeanor about the weather. For anyone who's looking for a sweet, talented, and amazing photographer, I definitely recommend Stephanie.
Stephanie is simply magical!”

ready for more?
A: I love to show off your love and intimate connection, whether it’s during a wedding, couple’s session, or even a session with your brand. I’ll guide you through posing to give you photos that are uber romantic, genuine, airy, and full of the small details too!
A: Absolutely - please bring me with you! As a travel addict, I am happy and ready to photograph your day anywhere in the world. In fact, I even have special discounts for my dream venues if you visit my wedding investment page. Send me more information on your travel plans, and we will create a custom wedding collection just for you! Let’s check off your bucket list together.
A: Yes: upon receiving your images, you will also get a full print release to download, use, and print your images. Post those babies!!
A: There’s a Pinterest board for that! Message me and I’ll give you suggestions and guidance on outfits, complete with photo examples. You’ll be comfortable and looking your best.
A: 100% HECK YES! As someone who had a very small wedding I find the intimacy to be so beautiful and special. Depending on the number of hours you have set aside for photography, we have special rates for weekday and smaller weddings.
A: Although I highly recommend ordering prints through my professional vendors, it is not required. The difference in quality is massive when it comes to ordering through a professional lab, so we encourage clients to let us help with prints or albums. They are an heirloom luxury that will last a lifetime.
A: Smaller wedding collections come with one photographer, although you can always add on a second photographer for an additional investment cost. I recommend a second photographer for weddings if you are not having a first look or if you are having a large wedding. You will see the larger packages include one automatically.
A: I’m a Sony girl and shoot on a professional-grade Sony mirrorless A7III. I always carry my camera, a backup Sony camera, a wide variety of lenses, a macro lens, and a surplus of batteries, chargers, and memory cards. I also have tiny accessory objects that I bring such as ring boxes and ribbon for your wedding details. I carry a back up for my supplies in the rare event something is damaged I still have a reliable system to capture your session.
A: I absolutely do! I have worked with wonderful vendors in the industry and would be happy to share their information with you! Feel free to message me for recommendations.
A: In the highly unlikely event I am unable to attend your session for an emergency, I have a highly experienced and professional list of photographers I work closely with that could step in and be my replacement if needed for weddings. Due to my networking and group of friendly colleagues, I will easily be able to find someone to be there for you and I will still edit the photos in my style. If it’s a smaller session, we will simply try to reschedule. Knock on wood, this hasn’t happened yet.
A: A 30% retainer fee and signed contract is required in order to get your wedding day on the calendar. Two weeks prior to your wedding, the remainder of the balance is due.
A: Generally I host scheduled, themed, mini sessions twice a year with limited spots. I do not discount or shorten regular sessions because they deserve my full time and focus and I want my clients to have a full experience.
A: If you’ve never heard of ‘golden hour’ know that it is THE BEST! Every photographer loves golden hour and for good reason: the light is glowy and magical! Golden hour is generally right after dawn or right before sunset. I will advise you on specific time periods throughout the year.
A: Deep breaths! I got you!!! With my guided posing and prompts you’ll be natural models in no time. I specialize in candid reactions, emotions, and lots of real smiles so don’t worry! The photos you see on my page are real people just like you.
A: Never. Once you’re booked you are my sole focus for your day. My feet would be way too sore to do more than one and I love to be able to provide exceptional customer service for all my couples. In order for us to be best friends I need to save my energy for the day just for you!
A: Since I was a kid I have always loved capturing and “freezing” moments through photos. On car rides I used to blink my eyes and pretend like I was taking a photo out the window. This passion grew with me as I grew up and I started photographing families and couples. I've always been a lover of love stories, romantic details, and the connections people have with others. Wedding photography was so natural for me to be drawn to because I get to experience weddings and record life moments that I absolutely adore. Every wedding (and session and person) has a unique moment or characteristic that it’s always exciting.
A: No worries! Shoot me over an email or use my contact form at the top of the page and I’m happy to talk it through with you: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do not see a certain collection type or number of hours you need I can offer custom pricing.
