This image highlights the exquisite detailing on the wedding gown. The long row of buttons is so classic.

Black wedding shoes fit for a black-tie wedding.

A simple strand of pearls finishes the bridal look.

A must-have shot of sunlight streaming through the veil.

The groom's cuff links look like legos.

The white flower petals scattered along the green grass aisle create a beautiful color contrast.

Surrounded by rolling hills and lush greenery, Carmel is a naturally scenic wedding destination.

The 70th wedding anniversary of Melinda’s grandparents fell on her wedding day. They were honored with a special dance for just the two of them. Now if this picture doesn't just melt your heart!

Verified Reviews from Real Brides & Grooms

“Stephanie is a true photojournalist and a spectacular wedding photographer. We have stunning photos to last a lifetime.”

“If a couple is looking to trust a true artist and professional, they should feel confident in letting Stephanie do what she does best…telling your story through photographs.”

“Her presence made me feel taken care of and almost like a movie star! I felt very calm and even comfortable enough to get silly with her at times (which made for really fun photos!)”

“We were THRILLED with Stephanie’s service. She was incredibly responsive and has continued to be responsive now, almost two years after the wedding.”

“She was extremely professional, wrote down (in detail) exactly what we wanted, and even suggested some fun photos that I hadn’t even thought of!”

“Stephanie was totally awesome on the day of our wedding. She was hands-down the most professional service provider we had at our wedding.”

“She’s genuinely the sweetest person ever!”

“We were very happy with the service Stephanie provided. She was clear, upfront about price and contract needs, and most importantly, she was always timely with appointments as well as the day of our event.”

“Stephanie captured all the photos we hoped she would and everything we discussed. We were looking for a photojournalistic style, and Stephanie provided exactly that.”

“Stephanie was great from start to finish.”

“She has a very fast turnaround with the photos—she puts them all online for viewing so quickly. She also offers a free photo session with her wedding couples after they have their first baby, whenever that may be!”

“I was blown away with the amount of photos that Stephanie took! She captured every moment of my wedding that I wanted and in the exact style that I had hoped for.”

“With her background and storytelling abilities, I knew she would be able to find shots and ideas that would exceed our desires.  Being a blur as many wedding days go, it was wonderful to see the moments she captured where I was either distracted or not present.”

“She really goes above and beyond. Let her suggest unique and creative ideas, she’s amazing at that.”
