I work with badass couples that ache for something more true to them than the traditional ideas the wedding industry has for them; couples who would rather experience emotion instead of what is trendy; couples who want to get married authentically, seeking a day that feels and is full of teary-eyes, wind-blown hair, and intimate moments. Your wedding day is a deep commitment, and deserves to be captured with intention and a story-telling eye.
Let me bring my cinematic, alternative, story-telling approach to your imagery so you can focus on being in the moment, real feelings, imperfect in-between moments, with bad-ass portraits and show-stopping landscapes that make you feel something. A wedding day without a pre-determined vision of “should”, that allows you to unapologetically be yourselves and experience the love between you.
Fuck their traditions; dare to show them the real you.
How I cater to Offbeat Brides
I’m focused on the gritty moments that happen in-between. A hand-written note from Grandma read at your ceremony; the way the light shined on your face when you took your dress down from the hanger; the way Mom smiled when she watched you walk down your candle-lit aisle; the way your partner pulled your hair back behind your ear; a song playing in the background of your mountain-top ceremony, the one you dance to together in the living room when your world feels dark.
All are welcome here; no matter your level of “trendy style”, fitness level or body time, outdoor or hiking experience, who you love, what you look like, your skin color, you are wanted here. I’m focused on you–nerdy, quirky, edgy, you, and cater to alternative and geeky couples that dare to be themselves.
"I’m going to start out by saying Steph was everything our dream photographer would be AND MORE.
From first contact, Steph was super communicative. She made the whole inquiry process so easy and approachable. She started out by recording a customized introduction video of herself, which was so amazing. It shed some light about her personality, what it would be like to work with her, and made us feel so at ease!
After, she provided us with a full customized layout proposal of the services she offered and how they would fit in to our wedding.
My husband and I agreed that we wanted to go meet with her for an in person consult! From the minute that we sat down with her, we knew that not only would we get an amazing photographer for our wedding, but also make a new friend.
Steph makes you feel so comfortable on your wedding day! Because of that, our pictures turned out better than we could’ve ever asked for.
She was able to capture such amazing candid moments that we will now be able to treasure forever.
We also HIGHLY recommend adding on Steph’s short “home video” style reels. It captured all of the special feels that help us relive our wedding day in a sincere, heartfelt, and candid kinda way.
I cannot speak enough great words about this amazing person. Thank you for helping to make our wedding day, one to remember." --Kevin and Clay, Orlando, FL
