Meet Stephanie

Let’s create an authentic experience that goes beyond photography.

i make my business personal

Nice to meet you!!

Virtual hug! I’m Stephanie (Messick) Schloe, and I’m a Colorado + Virginia-based wedding and lifestyle photographer. I’m also a military spouse, mother, Christ follower, traveler, 2011 JMU Alum (Go Dukes!!), Airbnb designer, and a Bachelor(ette) junkie (really just an excuse to hang out with girlfriends and enjoy a glass *or two* of wine)!

I often travel to Warrenton, Virginia (where I was born and raised on a family-owned dairy farm) throughout the year to visit family and friends and photograph weddings/portrait sessions. In between visits to Virginia, my husband and I love living the mountain life with our son and Golden Retriever in Colorado Springs! You can find us investing in real estate, hiking, skiing, and enjoying the outdoors any chance we get!

It’s an incredible honor to document something so unique and personal! Your story is inspiring, and I want to reflect that in your photos by catching those in-between, unscripted, heartfelt moments. 

Being in front of the camera can be nerve-wracking — But it doesn’t have to be! I approach every session/wedding with a vision and guide you with interactive posing so you feel comfortable and look natural in front of the camera. With my 10+ years of experience photographing, guidance with outfit suggestions, finding the perfect backdrops, and flattering poses, you’ll feel confident in front of the camera! When we are all set and done, the in-between moments of laughter and intimacy will share the sweet connection you’ll want to remember and cherish forever.

Tomorrow is not guaranteed, so let’s work together to capture your beautiful story in a way that can be treasured forever. Afterall, a photograph is a cherished reminder of what matters most in life. Let’s get to know each other and bring your story to life!
