Best of 2019 | Virginia + Florida Lifestyle Portraits

Iā€™m Stephanie, a wedding + lifestyle photographer based in Destin, Florida and Warrenton, Virginia. Whether Iā€™m by the mountains in Virginia or the ocean on the Florida Gulf Coast, 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!

It’s that time of the winter season when I have the honor of sharing some of my favorite memories from the previous year. From Virginia to Florida, 2019 was quite eventful!! I managed to book portraits during my trips in two different states, which made traveling very busy, but also rewarding. When I look at these photos below, I cannot help but be grateful that they entrusted me to document their special occasions. šŸ™‚ I found that a lot of my bookings were maternities, and I’m happy to see the women’s body celebrated because it is a beautiful gift to carry/grow LIFE! Incredible ā€¦

I went through my entire year of lifestyle portraits and selected some of my MANY favorites!!! So many laughs, fun and insightful conversations/connections, and stories ā€” I need to keep a journal of my adventures with couples/families!! Haha! Each session helped make 2019 a year I’ll never forget, and I hope to connect with these wonderful friends again soon!!

To my families/couples who made last year the most beautiful year documented yet, THANK YOU!!!! I love thinking of each of you when I look through these memories below. You all are wonderful!!! XOXO!

I’m looking forward to what this year has in store!!! Thank you, to all of my 2019 families/couples, for sharing your beautiful moments with me. <3
