Born and raised on a family owned dairy farm in Fauquier County, along with two siblings, Amanda and Eric. Graduated Liberty High School and went to James Madison University, where I participated in Kappa Pi Honors Fraternity as well as the Marching Royal Dukes! GO DUKES! Graduated in May of 2012 with my B.F.A. in Graphic Design. I worked as a graphic designer in the D.C. area for almost a year after graduating college and then resided in Warrenton, VA to work for the Piedmont Press & Graphics as one of four graphic designers :) Currently, I am managing to balance my full time graphic design job along with my photography business! It's a hectic lifestyle, but I enjoy it!!! About my photography business: I have learned in the world of photography that it is not just about pretty photos, it is all about the EXPERIENCE the photographer gives to the client. And that is what I am out here to do! Give YOU the best experience that you will not forget! From the moment we schedule the session... to the laughs/smiles we share the day of the shoot... to the moment I hand over the package of your images... I make sure that every step of the way leaves my client smiling :)

  • Nathaniel Clancy - The depth of color is so beautiful. You definitely captured the spirit of their entire day. God bless Brandon and Samantha. Great photos Stephanie, you are blessed beyond measure!

When it came time to purchase bar stools, I’m not sure why I thought they would be cheaper than a typical dining room chair… Depending on the style, they can be the same cost as a living room accent chair! Yikes! Since I created budgets for every room, I knew I didn’t want to spend […]

That time I walked into my house after a 95 degree wedding day to find my house was 84 degrees. Not the best timing for my AC unit to not be working… Although, I guess there really isn’t an appropriate time for something like that to happen! Fortunately, someone came by this morning and fixed it […]
