I'm here to tell you it's okay to break the rules and throw out the things you're "supposed to do" in exchange for doing the things that are true to you! And whether that's a secluded cabin elopement, an intimate ceremony in your backyard, or hiking to say your vows at Munising Falls, your story is what matters most! Your day should be about everything you love, and not uncomfortable poses with awkward smiles.
I WANT TO HELP YOU HAVE THE DAY OF YOUR DREAMS, AND AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE ALONG THE WAY!
HEY, I'M STEPH!
I'm just your average camping-loving granola gal with a serious passion for documenting love - and getting to spend nights in my tent with my pup while I'm at it! The fact that you're here means so much to me!
I'm a Michigan-based elopement & intimate wedding photographer adventuring all around our beautiful state to capture some incredible stories. I truly believe Michigan is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and that it's the perfect place to plan your wedding day adventure!
I believe that finding a photographer you have a connection with is one of the most important decisions you can make. It's so important to me that we can ~vibe~ so that it will feel like you've got a friend with you on your wedding day to cheer you on and help your day be the best fkn day ever!
KIND WORDS FROM SWEET SOULS
"Oh my gosh, where do I even start?! Steph was incredible to work with. From the very first phone call, to our wedding day, she was so sweet and made everything feel so calm and perfect.
We had to change around some of our plans, due to covid restrictions, and Steph never missed a beat. She went above and beyond to help us reschedule, and made the transition so easy for us!
I think her work speaks for itself! I find myself getting lost in both our engagement and wedding photos, all the time, and I NEVER like photos of myself.
So talented, so great at communication, and like a friend from the very beginning!!"

"Steph is one of the most amazing photographers I have met. I was initial drawn to her photos because they were so raw. She captures the candid, goofy laughs, rather than the posed, forced pictures, which was what we had been looking for. Upon first meeting her at our engagement shoot, she made my husband and I feel so special. All of our friends and family also thought she was very personable and professional on our wedding day, and everyone is seriously obsessed with how all the pictures turned out. My sister actually booked Steph as her wedding photographer 2 weeks after our wedding because she could not stop talking about her. I would hands down recommend her to anyone!"
- Haley & Cody
"Incredible photography and an absolute GEM of a photographer! Working with Steph was SUCH a breath of fresh air! From the ease of the whole process, to the good tunes & vibes & absolutely STUNNING photos, my husband & I cannot recommend her enough!"
