HEY, STEPHANIE HERE!

MEET YOUR WEDDING DAY SIDE-KICK, CANDID QUEEN, GROOMSMEN GO-TO GAL, AND FLOWER GIRL/RING BEARER WHISPERER.

Every time I have the opportunity to have a camera in hand, I’m a happy girl. I seriously have the best time capturing special moments and finding the right candid shot. Which is probably why no one is ever surprised that I bring my camera everywhere.

My passion for photography started in high school and just continued from there. After studying Journalism at Indiana University, I realized I loved telling stories, but with photos! After photographing my first wedding in college, I was hooked. I love getting the chance to tell love stories!

I think the best thing to know about me is that I just love to explore and discover new things. I'm always up for an adventure and I'll try anything once. (Including baton twirling... that's right, I've done it.) In college I became a proud rugby player. (IU rugby represent!) I also played cello in high school. But typically you can usually find me at local shows because I'm a concert junkie! I am a collector of Vans slip on shoes (8 pairs!) and a proud cat owner of my 2 adorable fur balls Guinness and Miss Kitty. I also put my rugby knowledge to good use and I can frequently be found photographing my sibling's rugby games.

Working with Jackie is an adventure I'm always up for. With over 20 weddings together I feel like we're pretty much a well oiled machine. I know what she wants and needs sometimes before she asks for it. On the wedding day you'll typically find me helping her, hanging with the groomsmen, capturing candids at cocktail hour, or schmoozing the kids in your wedding party or on the dance floor for the perfect adorable picture. Jackie says I have a way with children.

As for everything else, I am still finding my way and figuring out this crazy thing we call life. I do, however, know photography will always be a continuing passion and constant fixture. Whether it’s photographing my family and friends, my brother’s rugby game, or a beautiful wedding, there will always be an amazing story to tell and I want to be there to tell it. I can't wait to help tell your story.
