Adventure Wedding Photographer
& Elopement Guide



In a society with billions of different souls swimming together, the world overwhelmingly lacks the ability to empower each other to truly be themselves & celebrate the unique choices they make.

Close your eyes & envision feeling empowered to be totally yourselves on your wedding day. To feel relaxed, feel free, & commit to having a unique wedding that is about just the two of you & the love you are committing to. Where the entire day just feels right and feels like you. As someone who has always marched to the beat of my own drum, I fully understand how much courage it takes to celebrate in your own way. When you start your marriage feeling empowered to have a wedding built on intention & your connection, magic will happen. I want you to imagine, dream big & reach your dream. Say your vows in a way that makes you shine your brightest. That’s everything.

That is what drives me to not only support you, but empower you to celebrate your unique selves in any way you want.

Your wedding is so much more than just going to epic locations & having beautiful photos. It’s the foundation you are building your lives on, together. It’s a way to say ‘heck no’ to the societal norms that do not light your fire. Your elopement is a dedicated, intentional celebration of your love & uniqueness. Be present the entire day without distractions. I’m beyond honored that I get to help empower you & show you the path to creating a wedding that’s a reflection of who you are. Where you feel completely aligned with your true selves.

That’s what this life is about. And that’s what drives me to support you both.

Everyone deserves a wedding that will give them goosies reliving again & again. Your dream wedding can come to life.

 “Stephanie was such a fantastic photographer.

She did our engagement pics and our wedding pics. From the getgo she was extremely professional, her communication skills were ON POINT. She always answered any questions or concerns right away. As a photographer, her eye for the most amazing shots ever is a thing of beauty. She was very unobtrusive and seemingly was everywhere all at once. I love love love her sense of humor, she’s just so super fun and laid back. Seriously. You need to stop looking at other photographers and BOOK HER. You can thank me later when you get your fantastic photos.” - Holly & Kate
