party hard

love hard

Your wedding should be so. Much. FUN.

Let's have a freaking BLAST at your wedding.

You are so excited to marry your person, but you're overwhelmed by Pinterest and bridal magazines and advice from family and friends.

You want to celebrate YOUR way, with your own ideas and own personality infused into your wedding day.

You care more about your marriage than your wedding.

You love a good party, and can't wait to tear up the dance floor.

You want a photographer who shows up as a friend on your wedding day, who you look forward to seeing and can't wait to celebrate with.

You may be thinking about eloping, opting instead for a quiet, intimate day with your closest people, loving the idea of getting married in a beautiful or fun location without a lot of stress.

No matter what, you want this to be FUN. 

AND IT SHOULD BE.

Any of this sound familiar?

Check all the info below, and then let's talk. I'd love to tell your story.

Don't be like the rest of them, Darling.

The most important thing you can do on your wedding day is be yourself.

Wear what you want. Eat what you want. Be with the people who give you energy, not steal it from you.

When you look back at your wedding, will you see YOU in your photos? Will you be free and happy and full of joy?

You will. Because it’s your wedding. And you’re going to own your day.

Marriage is messy, lovely, and totally unique.
Your wedding doesn't have to be perfect.  
It just needs to be you.

I think it's the coolest thing ever that we get together and party when someone gets married.

I cannot stress enough how important it is to have FUN at your wedding.

Whether that means fun in the sweet intimate moments or fun at your giant reception, have. Some. Freaking. Fun.

If you’re having fun, you’re doing it right.

I've been shooting weddings for 9 years, and I freaking LOVE it. I love hanging out with you, your family, and your friends.

I want you to be stress-free while partying with the people you love. I promise I'll be with you throughout your journey and we'll have the best time together.

We start marriages by getting together and CELEBRATING. And I'm ready to celebrate with you.

 Steph

Don't get caught up in how your wedding will look.


Strive more for how your wedding will feel.

I was able to see the light and love come through beautifully in Steph’s photos, and I knew that this is what I wanted captured on my big day. My initial connection with Steph’s photos proved to be even better connection after meeting with her! Steph is full of life and personality. She makes you feel like the most special, unique, interesting, and beautiful person in the room. She brings out an amazing confidence in yourself that you didn’t know you had! This is exactly what I needed from a photographer to help me look less stiff in photos and more natural. Steph goes above and beyond to make you feel like a queen. She knows exactly how to pose you to give you all the best angles that always flatter you that look natural. I didn’t know I was capable of looking this beautiful until Steph was able to pull it out of me and capture it. 

Steph was able to keep me calm and help melt away the stresses of an upcoming wedding with her bubbly personality. She has everything taken care of from the beginning to the end. Not having to think of poses or where people need to stand was a huge relief, She helped me to focus on the love between my husband and I, rather than how perfect my wedding day was going. I am forever grateful for her. 

I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer for my wedding day! Having her there felt more like having a friend take photos, rather than a strict photographer. She made my wedding day even better by making everyone laugh, organizing family and friends in photos, and capturing the love on that day. Steph is an incredible human being and am so happy to have her in my life, not only as a photographer, but just as an admirable human!

I couldn't have asked for a better photographer for my wedding day.

Throughout the whole process, Steph was so supportive and energetic and made me feel so confident. From the beginning, she was excited to shoot the wedding and I could tell she was completely invested.

On my wedding day, Steph arrived just as bright and cheery as she could be and made me feel so special. She helped calm my nerves and made me slow down to really enjoy the small moments with my girls, my parents, and my grandparents.

Steph brought energy and spunk and just her personality was enough to calm a bride during stress. The day of the wedding went so smooth; you could really tell she was an expert at making a bride absorb her big day. Steph was natural in guiding us into poses - my husband and I are awkward when it comes to intimate photos, but Steph helped us become comfortable during our private portraits and they turned out wonderful!!

GO WITH STEPH!!! She is the best all around! She makes you feel beautiful, loved, and special not just on your big day, but every day leading up to it. She completely invests in you and your spouse and you can tell she cares. To me, this makes the product more beautiful than anything!

[Steph] completely invests in you and your spouse and you can tell she cares."

I knew when I started planning my wedding, I wanted to work with a photographer who made me feel comfortable and truly loved what they did!

After choosing Steph, her contagious smile and amazing work confirmed that she was the perfect fit! I could go on and on about her kind spirit, encouraging words, and stress free attitude during each shoot, but we all know the day that matters is the wedding day.

Steph and her team were AMAZING! They not only captured every detail perfectly, but the way they treated my friends and family during the whole process says a lot about the type of people they are. They truly care with their whole hearts! I will treasure my pictures for a lifetime and will continue to rave about Steph long after my wedding day! :)

Steph and her team are AMAZING! They truly care with their whole hearts!

sara + al

Where do I begin?! From the first time we connected – over FaceTime which was SO nice to not just email back and forth – I knew she cared more about Al and I than anything else. She wanted the pictures to be beautiful but also wanted our day to be perfect!

Her patience throughout the day, ability to make me feel so normal taking posed photos, and sense of humor allowed Al and I to only have to think about each other during our wedding.

Her smile is infectious – which helps you to smile through your sometimes awkward moments (Al and I are terrible at kissing in photos and taking it seriously). Not only do I love her style of photography, her talent is just the beginning of the amazing person she is! 

She wanted the pictures to be beautiful but also our day to be perfect.
