TAKE YOUR ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS IN SKINNY JEANS & OLD VANS. PLAY THE GAME OF THRONES THEME SONG AS YOU WALK DOWN THE AISLE. ELOPE ON A MOUNTAINTOP WITH A FEW OF YOUR FAVORITE PEOPLE.
PLAY BOARD GAMES AT YOUR RECEPTION. WE'RE THROWING THE MIDDLE FINGER TO WHAT THE WEDDING INDUSTRY SAYS YOU SHOULD DO. FUCK THEIR TRADITIONS, WE'RE GOING YOUR OWN WAY. SOUND LIKE YOU?
I work with badass 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 instead of what is trendy; couples who want to get married authentically, 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 intention and a 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 EVERY FORM OF LOVE. YOU ARE WANTED AND SUPPORTED, NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE, WHO YOU LOVE, YOUR HIKING OR FITNESS LEVEL, LEVEL OF TRENDY "STYLE", OR INTERESTS. IF YOU'VE EVER FELT LIKE AN OUTSIDER, YOU BELONG HERE.
I’M STEPH, A COLORADO ELOPEMENT AND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER FOR THE OFFBEAT, NON-TRADITIONAL COUPLE THAT DARES TO BE THEMSELVES. YOU DESERVE AN EXPERIENCE BETTER THAN A FEW POSED PHOTOS AND A PRE-WRITTEN-BY-SOCIETY ITINERARY FOR HOW YOU’LL START THE BEST CHAPTER OF YOUR LIVES.
HOWEVER YOU WANT TO CELEBRATE, I'M APPROACHING YOUR WEDDING DAY WITH A STORY-TELLING EYE AND A DASH OF EDGE TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A DAY THAT'S AUTHENTIC, FILLED WITH BELLY LAUGHS AND POP PUNK PLAYLISTS, FEELS LIKE CROWD-SURFING THROUGH THIS LIFE MILESTONE, AND CELEBRATES YOUR WEIRD AND NERDY. IT’S DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE.
"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."
JULIE + DAVE | FALL ELOPEMENT
"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!"
