ALL ABOUT Stephanie

Hey there! I'm Stephanie, your go-to wedding photographer and a big fan of Instagram reels. Most days, you'll find me in comfy leggings, flashing a contagious smile, busting out some dance moves, and on Sundays, you bet I'll be sipping those delightful mimosas.

Let's dive into your love story from start to forever. I'm all about capturing those cherished moments that will bring back sweet memories each passing year.

While I call Wilmington, North Carolina my home, I'm a wanderer at heart and ready to travel anywhere love takes you – especially if it involves a tropical paradise. My lens is drawn to couples who radiate joy, outgoing, and are always up for a dance party.

With a solid seven years of wedding photography under my belt, I've had the honor of capturing the magic of over 75 weddings. What truly fuels my passion? It's not just about taking pictures; it's about the incredible couples I connect with along the way. Your journey with me isn't just a client-photographer relationship – it's a friendship in the making.

I've mastered making you feel at ease and showing confidence in front of the camera. So, let's not only capture those bright and joyful moments, but let's make memories together that will always make you beam with happiness.

I'm Stephanie
