ALL ABOUT Stephanie

Hi there! I’m Stephanie, Photographer, and an instagram reels lover. Most days you will find me hanging out in leggings, smiling, dancing, and if it’s Sunday, drinking mimosas. I can’t wait to be a part of your love story beginning to end, recording all those intimate moments you will keep coming back to year after year.

I'm based in Wilmington, North carolina but travel anywhere, (especially somewhere tropical) I serve the joyful, outgoing, fun-loving couples who admire experiences and always down for a dance party. After 6  years of photographing weddings, I’ve learned that my favorite part of my job is not just taking photos, but the people I get to work with. I have shot over 50 weddings and I strive to make my couples feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. . 

I'm Stephanie
