Virtual hug! I’m Stephanie Messick, and I’m a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Warrenton, Virginia, where I was born and raised on a family-owned dairy farm. Currently, I share my heart between two states. My business is planted in the Virginia countryside and the Gulf Coast of Florida, but my passion takes me beyond these areas!

I love that my business takes me on new travels, near and far, because I passionately enjoy exploring. Even places I take for granted, like living just an hour from Washington, D.C. Although I’m not much of a city gal, I love all types of adventures!! I feel so fortunate to have grown my roots back in my hometown where I built genuine relationships and I look forward to continuing building friendships in new places, no matter where life takes my business!

behind the camera

I’m a go-getter, light-chaser, a dreamer, and doer! After graduating JMU (GO DUKES!!) with my BFA in Graphic Design, I decided that the cubicle life was too restraining for my creative, outgoing soul. God opened opportunities in my life that led me to where I am today, and I still pinch myself that I get to LOVE what I do and serve so many influential couples through my business!

I also love connecting with people through other passions beyond my business. Besides my undeniable love and passion for photography, I enjoy other hobbies that drive and fuel my creativity like traveling and DIY projects. When I am not hustling, you can find me reading a book on the beach, watching Netflix with my loves, hanging out with family/friends, or enjoying a nice hike in the mountains. There’s so much to love in life, and I am always searching for the next adventure!
