I’m Stephanie, a wedding + lifestyle photographer based in Colorado Springs, Colorado and Warrenton, Virginia. Whether I’m by the mountains of Colorado or Virginia, my soul feels at home, surrounded by rural living and the raw beauty of nature. I genuinely love what I do, and feel so passionate to share the enthusiasm and joy of these celebrations with you!

Where do I even begin with this couple … I have known Emily since freshmen year of college back in the JMU years. We became roommates with two other beautiful ladies from sophomore to senior year and have fortunately been able to keep in touch when possible. πŸ™‚ And I can say that when Chris proposed to Emily early spring, I could not think of anyone better for Emily! They are absolutely perfect for one another … not to mention that they are just GORGEOUS! I could not be more happy for Chris and Emily and I am looking forward to their beautiful big day next summer!!!!

Thank you Chris and Emily for this amazing session!!! You two are absolutely adorable and enjoy the preview! oxoxox

I was immediately drawn to this flower, thanks to my boyfriend who has been teaching me about plants, and this native flower, Echinacea, worked out PERFECTLY for this ring shot! LOVE IT!

The exact spot where Chris proposed to Emily! πŸ™‚ He brought her in a carriage ride to this spot on his birthday (to throw her off) where it was covered in rose petals and candles …. and the rest is history! πŸ™‚ SO ADORABLE!

Love you two!!! Thanks for a fun and amazing session!!!
