“Steph's communication, business, work ethic, and character are all just the best. [She] fulfilled every single dream and expectation we could ever have had, and so many more above and beyond. Our family and friends are so impressed and in love with the photos and the moments captured. Steph has the best eye for the important, unicorn, most special photo-ops. She's reliable, reachable, and excellent company to be around. We are so glad we found and chose Steph! We are so overwhelmed and over the moon with our wedding photos. It's not enough to write this review...you just have to have her be your photographer. Then you'll get it. :) :)”

What kind of weddings do I specialize in?
I specialize in Adventure Elopements & Destination Weddings, documenting them in Iceland and anywhere else my amazing clients fly me out to. I specialize in these, versus very large weddings, because I feel like I can get in my zone much better and create the best art for my clients. On top of that, I have noticed when couples are having an elopement or intimate wedding, they really have more of a chance to be with one another and celebrate with each other instead of dividing their attention to a million different places. I thrive when the focus of the day is on the couple and not a big event.
“I have this really wild idea…”
I want to hear it! I love when my couples have some really unique, amazing, off-the-wall ideas for their wedding. That is the best part about weddings is that they are all SO different. If you want to venture onto a continent neither of us have been before, EVEN BETTER.
From Consult to Image Delivery
BUILD YOUR OWN WEDDING COLLECTION
In my many years in this industry, I have come to realize that making strict packages is not actually what people want. I would get asked to add this or take that out. So, I made my collections completely custom for each couple and what their needs actually are. I will chat with you, listen to what your day will be like, what you need from me, and offer you a proposal with 3 amazing options.
YOU GET MY EXPERIENCE
I am not even going to sugar coat it. This industry is absolutely a ‘you get what you pay for’ industry. If it’s cheap, there is a reason. You getting my experience of documenting over 250 weddings will take away any stress you had about booking a photographer. You get my knowledge and network. You get help planning, guides, tips & tricks, and knowledge of what’s dangerous and what’s safe. You won’t have to research locations in Facebook groups. You will get it all right form me on top of sweet fricken photos.
MY SKILLS AND PERSONALITY
I am not ‘just’ a photographer, I am a friend with a camera. Someone you can rely on to show you the best way to hold that dress. Someone who you can let down your walls with and someone who is just like you- and adventurer who supports people going the untraditional route. I GET IT.
PERSONAL ZAKAS PHOTOGRAPHY CLIENT PORTAL
You will get a personal Zakas Photography Client Portal so you have one less thing to organize. All of our important documents will be there for you.
HIGHLIGHT SNEAK PEEK GALLERY
I offer 5 sneak peeks or a highlight gallery of about 25-40 images to brag to everyone within a week from your wedding.
FINAL GALLERY WITH YOUR FULL STORY
Your Sneaks, Highlights, or Final galleries come on a custom online & mobile platform to download your images from and to share. You get both print size and social media size so your photos always look dope as eff.
PRINT CREDIT FOR AN ALBUM
I offer album print credits within the package proposals to help you get your images off of a screen and into your hands. In 50 years you will not be viewing your images on the same computer so get them out to cherish. Your Gallery is also integrated with an heirloom quality printer you can order prints from to be sent right to your door.
FINALLY, YOU GET MY HEART & SOUL
I have worked endlessly on my client processes to keep everything smooth and easy for you. You will get helpful tips from me from timeline construction to what to wear on our engagement session together. I want to be one less thing you need to worry about.
My Elopements start at $3500 and can include all of the amazingness listed above in your custom Adventure Wedding Packages, no matter what your day is like.
I offer Planning Guides, All Vendor Suggestions, Sneak Peek or Highlight Gallery, my endless knowledge of travel & being in other countries, me helping you cary your coats, getting the best brewery suggestions, and me making you look fricken BOSS with your hair being blown in all sorts of directions.
I also offer adventure engagement sessions, extra hours of wedding day coverage, Day After sessions, honeymoon sessions, vow renewal, and prints. You deserve to treat-yo-self and have images you actually love. Great photos are like a good pair of expensive jeans, they are always worth it and they make your butt look good. You deserve the best.
Once you contact me and we take some time to chat, I will have a better idea of who you two humans are and you will be able to get all of my info.
