hi  there! 

I'm Steph! I'm a twenty-something gal living life in the beautiful mitten state. Most days you can catch me working at my desk surrounded by way too many plants singing really loudly & poorly to 70's/80's rock music. 

I love adventure. I believe making real connections with the people you work with is what makes the world go round (not to mention makes for the best photos). I'm passionate about capturing people's individual adventures, whether it's the day you marry your best friend, start a clothing line, or just want to go play outside. I connect with people who want to do something a little different, who are down for an adventure, and who love this big beautiful planet of ours as much as I do. I strive to turn clients into friends and show you a good time chasing the light in beautiful places.

To start planning your session with me, head over to my contact me page and drop me a line!

Kind Words

"I am completely stunned by the talent of Steph. She was the best photographer to work with, so easy going and full of talent. When she asked what I was looking for in a wedding photographer I told her I wanted moments and emotions captured more than posed pictures. If I can’t put into words my emotions on the day of the wedding, she captured it all in this photo. With tears in my eyes and my heart filled with joy, she managed to capture the myriad of emotions that consumed me and that is what I would describe as pure talent. I couldn’t ask for anything more from her. Having some of my closest friends and family beside me and an amazing man waiting for me down the aisle, I know I’ve been blessed."

- Alfredo & Kristin Rojas

 

"Steph was such an amazing photographer to work with! She was very professional and listened to what we wanted for our photos. She also gave us excellent advice so our pictures would come out perfect as well as on locations to shoot at. She captured so many moments of our wedding I will be able to remember it forever"

- Ashley & Dan Koval

 

F.A.Q.

Where are you based?

I am based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan, but have a serious travel bug and love photographing anywhere I can go. 

What should we wear?

BE YOURSELF! I love when people I work with are comfortable in their own skin and what they're wearing, because being uncomfortable in an outfit can definitely show in the photos! I always recommend lots of earth tones, neutral patterns, simple textures, and lots of hats ;) Just kidding, you don't have to wear a hat. But if you do show up in a hat,  I will definitely give you a high five.  

Do you travel?

ABSOLUTELY! Whether it's in Michigan, the US, or worldwide, I love love love traveling and would love to work with you no matter where you are. My travel is billed very simply, and typically includes getting there/back and a night or two in a cheap hotel. I love working with people that are always down for adventure and are up for something different. So if you wanna hop in the car and drive three hours away to an awesome location for your shoot? Let's do it!

Having a cool destination wedding? Let me know! I offer some special pricing for locations on my bucket list

How would you describe your style?

My style is earthy, moody, and natural. I love to make real connections with my clients and make everyone I work with as comfortable and confident as possible during our time together. My passion is capturing the candids, real-life moments as they happen. 

WHEN WILL WE SEE OUR IMAGES?

For weddings, you can expect to receive all of your images within 6-8 weeks following your event. For portrait sessions, you can expect your final images within 2 weeks of you choosing your photos from your proof gallery.

Do you offer albums?

Yes! I offer gorgeous leather-bound albums that will turn your photos from a Facebook post into an heirloom. My albums are 8x8 and include 50 of your favorite images. 

 

How do we book?

Booking with me is SUPER EASY! All I require is a signed contract, and a 25%  retainer for your day.
