Hey there! I’m Stephanie.  I'm an avid DIY'er, cow lover, day dreamer, coffee connoisseur + moscow mule enthusiast (extra lime)! I began my photography journey four years ago and have been so fortunate to spread so much happiness and passion to my amazing, vibrant clients. there is no better feeling than making other people happy.  I find happiness with a camera in hand + a pretty sunset. When I first meet with clients I let my bubbly, friendly and humorous personality shine! I enjoy making clients feel comfortable and at ease, making photos a fun-filled experience for everyone.  Let's chat over coffee (or a drink) + become friends! I promise- you won't regret it! 

a little about me

I grew up on a dairy farm outside of Owatonna, MN. I began my photography journey 4 years ago and it has flourished more than I could’ve imagined. As a child, I couldn’t put a camera down. I had the best photography subjects on our farm- the cats + the cows (yes, my passion began with cats- but way before the "crazy cat picture" ordeal!) I went off to college at the U of MN and being the "don't know 'til you try it" girl I am, I dove in head first! My mother's famous quote growing up was "Find something you love to do, and you'll never work a day in your life." My parents have encouraged me in literally every little thing I've ever tried and after seeing my photography work- like true parents- bragged to all of their friends + family (I did a lot of blushing)! I finally realized + was nudged by friends and family, to “get serious about my photography.” I have been blazing my trail ever since. Now, I’ve found what I truly love—my photography niche: weddings. I’ve always been a d.e.t.a.i.l person. My love of DIY is just one way I exemplify that. I carry my love of the little things into wedding day, and cater to every client dream. My goal is to tell your story in a very memorable way. In order to make it stress-free I work with clients beforehand to set up detailed information and timelines. I also love working with families, who’s growing kids and or pups are so fun to watch evolve, love and change! So, that means I love working with seniors, too! Some of whom I’ve watched or known throughout their biggest days + what a joy it is to help them jump so boldly + daringly into their next life steps! 

p.s. thanks mom + dad. you're rockstars who do everything in life without the need of recognition -but you're getting it now!
