Sam & Kristin | Classy Georgetown Engagement Photographer

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!

light chaser, dreamer, go-getter.

We met at 5:45 a.m. last Wednesday and when I set my alarm for 4 a.m., I then remembered how often I did that last year. Whew! Not sure how I did it but it is always SO worth it! Less crowds, gorgeous lighting, less traffic (well, I like to think so) … we started the day off right with this beautiful engagement! When photographing these two, I thought it was so sweet how they make each other smile and laugh as they joked around. But they also have a sweet and soft spoken side that were beautiful moments to capture between the two. Georgetown was the perfect atmosphere for these two! We ended at the Jefferson Memorial for a different atmosphere and I love seeing the combination of locations put together with the greenery and the clean white backdrop. Enjoy some of my favorites from their session!

Thanks Sam & Kristin for waking up super early to make this session worth it! I had a blast getting to know you two in front of the camera and looking forward to your special day in February! xoxo
