Hi, I'm Steph!
I am a wedding photographer in Charlotte NC. I was saved by Jesus in 2016 while I was serving in the Dominican Republic. The following year, I felt the Lord to call me to invest in a DSRL camera. After spending my first paycheck, I began taking photos during family vacation. Capturing the relationship between my cousin and his son is what inspired me to continue to document love stories.
As the owner of a Charlotte wedding photography business, I am here to serve you and create memorable imagery that you can hold onto until the end of time. Your only job on your wedding day is to refocus your heart and mind on the here and now.
and I believe love is love 🏼

Behind the Scenes!
The first step to booking me as your photographer begins with a phone call and ends with your handcrafted wedding album design!! I also offer the most modern photo booth experience ever!!
We booked Steph for our engagement and wedding photos and I'm so grateful that we did! For our wedding, she had a tight timeline to herd a fairly large wedding party and an even larger family for portraits and she still managed to get the most fun and meaningful pictures of us and our people. Steph and her team were able to capture such fun and candid memories of the entire day and evening. Steph worked so hard to turn our albums around within a month and her editing was fantastic. I highly recommend choosing her and trusting her with your biggest day!
Many don’t realize, but it can be daunting to make vendor selections in the LGBT+ community because ultimately you want to make sure everyone supports you and gives you 100% on one of your biggest days. Stephanie was affirming from the start and made us feel welcomed, and was equally excited to join us for our day. She has such a relaxed vibe while also so professional and on top of things. She even helped direct our videographers + her experience shined through. We will be sharing our photos for so many years to come and can’t wait to use her again!
Stephanie photographed our wedding back in October and did an absolutely amazing job! I had a large wedding party and she did great with our group shots and directing everyone with what to do in our pictures! Multiple people in my party even came up to me after pictures to tell me how great she was! She was amazing to work with from the first consultation call! Honestly, our wedding pictures are magical and I’m so happy with how they turned out so I can relive that amazing day! I couldn’t recommend Stephanie more if you’re looking for a wedding photographer!
Stephanie was the best wedding photographer we could've ever hoped for!! She was so professional and easy to communicate with leading up to the big day, making sure she understood what we wanted out of our wedding photos. Her presence and personality was calming and easy going, which helped keep the overall vibes of getting ready super laid back. Many of our family and friends mentioned they never even realized she was there...she managed to capture so many special moments without being at all obtrusive to the setting. We are so so happy with our beautiful photos.
Our photo booths are the best way to capture those fun moments with your event guests. Since the Honey Booths are completely customizable, it is also an amazing marketing tool since your guests can share their images on social media! And don't worry, as the client, you will receive all digital captures within 48 hours after the event through an online portal.
