Hey there!

Stephanie here. I am a destination wedding/portrait photographer based out of Kentucky! I am married to my best friend of all time, Tyler, and we have the sweetest little family of fur babies. I got into photography when I was very young because I loved to create art, but I pursued it as a career because I fell in love with helping people embrace their individual beauty and capturing life's most precious memories.

Let's create something incredible together.

I definitely can’t have an "About Me" section without telling you a little about my husband, Tyler! He is truly the backbone of my business because he is the one who keeps me sane and speaks life into me daily. He is nurturing, thoughtful, strong,  and truly the best part of my life. He also films weddings alongside me!

He and I went on our first date on May 31st, 2018. 7 months later, we were engaged! We tied the knot on October 20th of 2019, and it’s been bliss ever since. Since being married, we’ve added many fur babies to our home! We have our Great Pyranees mix, Appa, plus two Australian shepherd/Texas Heeler pups named Ace and Luna, and a cranky orange tabby we adopted from the shelter, Mable.

In our free time, we love to get outside, work out, and cuddle with the pups together. Our dream as a couple is for us both to work from home so we have more time together and more freedom to travel! Being married has brought a whole new perspective to being a wedding photographer, and I’m loving every minute of it.

Now, for a little fun fact list about me!
I am the youngest of six kids, and I grew up in northern California.
I have watched the entire series of New Girl at least 7 times and quote it on the daily.
I have been learning ASL since the start of 2020, in order to better reach the Deaf community with my work.
I love to travel whenever possible — especially to Utah and California!
I used to be a die-hard enneagram 2 (people pleaser), but my husband is a healthy 8w9, so his perfectly balanced empathetic/thoughtful heart and unwavering confidence has helped me grow in all the best ways.

I believe I was created to love unconditionally and use my talents and skills to do it. I’m beyond thankful this career gives me that opportunity to show love to every person who steps in front of my camera!

Thank you for your interest in my passion and for taking the time to read this and get to know me a little better! I love people and hearing their stories, and I hope I get to hear yours soon.
