YOUR WEDDING DAY DESERVES A LITTLE EDGE. TAKE YOUR ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS IN SKINNY JEANS & OLD VANS. PLAY THE GAME OF THRONES THEME SONG AS YOU WALK DOWN THE AISLE. PLAY BOARD GAMES AT YOUR RECEPTION. ELOPE ON A MOUNTAINTOP WITH A FEW OF YOUR FAVORITE PEOPLE.
WE'RE THROWING THE MIDDLE FINGER TO WHAT THE WEDDING INDUSTRY SAYS YOU "SHOULD" DO. FUCK THEIR TRADITIONS, WE'RE GOING YOUR OWN WAY. YOU IN?
HELL YEAH /
I work with badass offbeat couples that ache for something more true to them than the traditional ideas the wedding industry has for them; couples who would rather experience emotion, BECAUSE THEY DON'T CARE WHAT EVERYONE SAYS IS TRENDY; couples who want to get married seeking a day full of teary-eyes, wind-blown hair, and intimate moments. Your wedding day is a deep commitment, and deserves to be captured with TRUE intention and a careful story-telling eye, so you never have to look back on these memories and say, "damn, i wish that day would have felt more like us."
I CELEBRATE ALL HUMANS AND EVERY FORM OF LOVE. YOU ARE WANTED AND SUPPORTED HERE, NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE, WHO YOU LOVE, YOUR HIKING OR FITNESS LEVEL, LEVEL OF TRENDY "STYLE", OR MARIO KART PLAYING ABILITY (OK MIGHT JUDGE YOU ON THIS ONE, A LITTLE). IF YOU'VE EVER FELT LIKE AN OUTSIDER, YOU BELONG HERE.
WE'RE IN /

I’M STEPH (SHE/HER), A COLORADO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER SPECIALIZING IN ALTERNATIVE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY FOR THE OFFBEAT, NERDY, NON-TRADITIONAL COUPLE THAT DARES TO BE THEMSELVES.

I APPROACH YOUR WEDDING DAY WITH A STORYTELLING-FOCUSED EYE AND A DASH OF EDGE TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A DAY THAT ACTUALLY REFLECTS WHO YOU ARE, CELEBRATING ALL YOUR WEIRDNESS.
BECAUSE THIS ISN'T ABOUT MODELING FOR A MAGAZINE PORTFOLIO, IT'S ABOUT CELEBRATING IN A WAY THAT MAKES YOU FEEL ALIVE: A DAY FULL OF BELLY LAUGHS AND POP PUNK PLAYLISTS, THAT FEELS LIKE CROWD-SURFING THROUGH THIS LIFE MILESTONE INSTEAD OF SUFFERING THROUGH PLANNING BY YOURSELF. YOUR TALE TOLD WITH HEART, FULL OF NONTRADITIONAL, OFFBEAT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AS UNIQUE AS YOURSELVES THAT BRINGS YOU RIGHT BACK TO THOSE MOMENTS. AS MY GOOD FRIEND NAVI WOULD SAY, "IT’S DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE."

"I can't even begin to tell you how incredible these photos are and how much they mean to us already. At the very least, the day was perfectly captured and immortalized by you — but so much more than that, you gave everything such a feeling of dreamy intimacy and uniqueness that wedding photography rarely gets at. These photos look and feel how memories do when you pull them up in your head, but we'll have them always. We will cherish all of these (and the video!) forever. Thank you for feeling out what was important to us and communicating it through these photos, and capturing so beautifully how we love each other and our loved ones. Thank you so so much. "

"OH MAN, WHERE DO I START. STEPH WAS AN ABSOLUTE DREAM TO WORK WITH. I HAD NO IDEA HOW TO EVEN START PLANNING, BUT KNEW I WANTED AN AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER TO CAPTURE OUR DAY. I REACHED OUT TO STEPH ABOUT HER ABOUT HER AVAILABILITY AND IT WAS THE BEST DECISION I'VE EVER MADE! STEPH WAS SO UPBEAT AND FUN TO BE AROUND. MY HUSBAND AND I LAUGHED SO HARD, CRIED A COUPLE HAPPY TEARS, AND MADE THE MOST INCREDIBLE MEMORIES...IT WAS A DREAM.WE ARE SO GRATEFUL."
"From our engagement session in Chicago, to boudoir for just me, to our elopement day in Colorado - LOVED all the experiences and the photos! Steph went above and beyond for us - from picking out spots, making sure we were good with plans, and then having to completely change our plans last minute due to severe storms - we are so grateful to have had her every step of the way! Her personality and talent with her professionalism, really added to our time with her."
JESS + CHRIS | RMNP ELOPEMENT
"Steph was a dream to work with! We absolutely loved her from the very beginning! She was so helpful, so responsive, and genuinely cared about our wedding day! She doesn’t make you feel like you’re just another customer. Her work is amazing and we are in love with all of the photos we have gotten back so far. She went above and beyond and we can’t thank her enough for making our day so special! I highly recommend her to anyone looking to elope, you will not regret it!"
JORDAN + MATT | SAPPHIRE POINT ELOPEMENT
"We absolutely loved working with Steph! She took time to get to know us and make us feel comfortable. Our wedding photography looks beautiful and taking our photos was one of the biggest highlights of our wedding day. Would definitely recommend Hennessy Photo Co, especially for LGBTQ+ & BIPOC folks."
JERIKA & TAYLOR | DENVER BOTANIC GARDEN, INTIMATE WEDDING
"Working with Steph for our elopement was an absolute dream. From the first point of contact, to our regular planning communications, to our actual wedding day Steph was sweet, extremely knowledgeable, and 100% easy to talk to. We were overwhelmed with the amount of locations we had to choose from for our special day and Steph made making that decision an easy one we felt confident in."
