Iceland Elopement Photographer | Brooklyn Wedding Photographer

Iceland Elopement Photographer & Brooklyn Intimate Wedding Photographer
For Adventure Loving Souls.


⤹(Oh hey, it’s me you’re looking for.)

I am just your unconventional, silly, roller derby playing
Adventure Elopement & Intimate Wedding photographer
ready to give you a badass experience.


⤷ Hey, I'm Steph! I specialize in Adventure Elopements & Intimate Weddings for awesome couples that love each other completely and adventure to the beat of their own drum.

I drink too much coffee (2 French presses a day, YIKES), eat too much cheese, and believe in having the most fun with what I do. 
I am in love with traveling, adventure, glaciers and mountains.
I have shot all over the world and have great pride in my work and in making my clients feel comfortable in front of my camera.
I am obsessed with Iceland.
I will also definitely become best friends with your pet. I will want to see photos of your cats.
I will also probably crack a few too many dad jokes.
I believe in letting the day unfold naturally while I document ev-ver-ry-thing.
I do not aim to give you the same shots you saw another couple have on Pinterest. Your souls are unique and your experience is unique so you deserve your own art and story.
I shoot in a mostly documentary style and find those quick moments that only happen to you two on your day. 

My journey to get to where I am at is a long story of winding roads in Columbus, Ohio to moving to Orlando, Florida to get a film degree. Later working for The Mouse himself at Walt Disney World, to literally deciding one day I was going to move to Brooklyn, NYC to get a swift kick in the ass professionally and I was there 3 weeks later, homeless, with only 2 trash bags full of stuff.

My story is a pretty fun story, remind me to tell you some of it as we adventure along together. And, remind me to tell you when Bradley Cooper screamed at my face. Or when Amanda Palmer was naked in my car in Iceland.
