So glad you are here!!! First of all … WELCOME to my blog!

Stephanie Messick

Virtual hug! I’m Stephanie Messick, a photographer based in Warrenton, Virginia where my soul feels right at home, surrounded by rural living. I genuinely love what I do and feel so passionate to share the enthusiasm and joy with others! Spending time with my couples has allowed me to capture their true essence, from the soft and natural moments to the sincere smiles and laughs. My favorite part of photographing any occasion are the unscripted, authentic, in between moments. But don’t worry when it comes to our “portrait time” together, I won’t leave you hanging! I believe in making you feel as comfortable as possible in front of the camera. That starts with getting to know you throughout our time together and guiding you through flattering poses.

I’m a light chaser, a dreamer and a go-getter! When I’m not behind my camera, I enjoy breathtaking mountain views, relaxing on the beach, hiking, road tripping, wine dates with friends (want to join?!), warm blankets fresh from the dryer, Nutella (my workouts balance it out in my diet ;), attending JMU football games (Go Dukes!), quality time with family, decorating, and cuddling with my rambunctious kitty, Pixie!

I appreciate your time and hope we have the chance to meet and start building a friendship!

XOXO!

    Stephanie: I’m from NY and just attended the wedding of Megan And Paul Longo. When I saw just “one little girl” running around taking pictures, I wasn’t expecting much. But wow, you blew me away! The sweetness and beauty of your photography and the natural joy and happiness of Megan and Paul really shines through your lens. Outstanding work. What a career you have in front of you!,

    Congrats!
