Iā€™m Stephanie Messick, a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Warrenton, VA. Whether Iā€™m by the mountains in Virginia or the ocean on the Florida Gulf Coast, my soul feels right 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!

The mountains will always hold a special place in my heart … Even though I’m loving the beach scenery too in Florida. šŸ˜‰ But I LOVE that I have the opportunity to reconnect with friends and photograph them on top of the Shenandoah mountains in Virginia when I come back for business trips! With the fall season approaching quickly, I’m excited to go back to see the changing leaves soon since the last time I heard, palm trees don’t change colors. šŸ˜‰ Haha! What the upcoming months also mean is that John and Shannon will be holding little Oliver in their arms!!! I’m always amazed by the beauty of pregnancy ā€” Growing a tiny human inside of a woman’s body! INCREDIBLE. It’s a beautiful gift from God, for sure!!!

I’m SO excited for these two! <3 I photographed their wedding last fall and they have a way to make everything look like a piece of cake. Planning a GORGEOUS wedding (if you don’t remember seeing it, you HAVE to check it out HERE) … Prepping to have a baby soon … I don’t know how they do it, but it looks effortless! šŸ™‚ Most importantly, they look SO happy!!! <3 John and Shannon are going to be the sweetest parents to little Oliver. I’m sure they are going to have their hands full too because that little boy is going to be ready for his modeling gigs judging by the looks of his parents! šŸ˜‰ Now it’s the final countdown till the big debut and I cannot WAIT to see the big announcement pop up on my FaceBook/Instagram!!! <3

Thank you, Shannon and John, for having me document this SUPER exciting time of your lives!!! My goodness, I couldn’t be happier for you two. <3 Oliver is so lucky to have you two as his parents and I cannot wait to see you holding him in your arms SOON! CONGRATS!!!!!

CONGRATS!!!!!
