I am Stephanie, wedding photographer, wife, and obsessed dog mom located in Wilmington, North Carolina. Most of the time you’ll find me listening to country music and talking way too much about my dog, Rusty. I recently got married to the man of my dreams, and I can’t wait to talk with you about all things wedding planning (seriously - I loved it)! As a romantic at heart, I love weddings- from the dad who steps on your train going down the aisle (mine did), to the moment you and your spouse looking out at all of your friends and family as a newly wedded couple, to the first dance surrounded by the love of generations. More than anything, I am passionate about capturing your special day so you can relive it every time you open your wedding album.
I believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
I was born and raised in Roanoke, Virginia. When I started dating Robby in 2014 I moved to Raleigh, North Carolina to be closer to him. We traveled back and forth from Wilmington to Raleigh . Since then, I've traveled up and down the East Coast documenting love stories for couples and families.
My home is Wilmington, but I love to travel. I've shot weddings in Paris, Jamaica, Emerald Isle, so no location is too far. As a seasoned wedding photographer, I have lots of tips I can’t wait to share to make your day exactly what you envision!

Stephanie was the perfect wedding photographer! She made our day so much more fun with her joy and enthusiasm. She made us extremely comfortable taking hours of photos and truly captured the MOST beautiful moments. I can't speak highly enough of her. She was super helpful and efficient throughout the planning process from building the timeline to organizing the shot list. You are making the best decision by hiring Stephanie!
Sundays are Robby and I's favorite day to spend together. Starts with our favorite mimosas, (with orange juice & cranberry) usually playing board/card games, or spending the day by the lake.
Whether that be Wrightsville Beach, Lake Gaston, or Smith Mountain Lake you will always find us by a body of water in the North Carolina summer heat when i'm not photographing a wedding.
Grab some white claws and your favorite game, Robby and I love a classic game night with friends, we love to play catan, card games, qwirkle, and carcassonne.
Rusty, our cuddle buddy, my coworker, and our whole world. Rusty is our sweet puppy, we love taking him on walks, swimming at the lake, and playing fetch.
The crowd, the music, the beer, the atmosphere are best parts of country music concerts. Some of our favorite shows we have been too are Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, and Thomas Rhett.
Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them.
I have always wanted to travel to the West Coast for a wedding! California, Arizona, and my number one dream location is Hawaii.
A wedding on the west side of the united states
I have gone as far as Jamaica for a wedding, so no location is too far! I would love to travel to the Bahamas, Aruba, St. Lucia, and Barbados!
Where it is always warm and sunny, The Caribbean!
There is no doubt that I love the warm sunshine and a beach wedding, I've done wedding at Wrightsville beach, Atlantic Beach, Emerald Isle, ect.
Anywhere along the North Carolina coast

The first time I picked up a camera, I fell in love. All those moments ready to be captured and curated for a lifetime. I love getting to know my couples and building a relationship with them. It is my privilege to step into their world and be a part of it- the sweet hand holding, the loving looks, the crazy dancing. I get to be their eyes, the recorder of their love story. That is an amazing gift.
it all began with a kiss.
