I go by Stephanie or Steph!

She earned her Associate of Arts Degree in Photography from Harford Community College, with 11+ years of experience shooting Live Music, Sports Action, Nightlife, and Special Events. Stephanie has shot at well-known venues in and near Baltimore such as Recher Theatre, Fletcher's Bar and Baltimore Arena, as well as Nissan Pavilion in Bristow, VA. From 2003-2005, Stephanie was the House Photographer for HeidNSeek Entertainment at ClubONE and Eden's Lounge, while also being an honorary photographer at R.F.K. Stadium for a few D.C. United matches.


I really enjoy traveling to different locations with other photographer friends in and outside of MD to shoot landscapes, seascapes, and urban areas. Camera gear always in tow, I've gone to Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Israel. Inside the states I've been to New York, Boston, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Florida. More traveling is in hopes for the next few years with my amazing husband Kyle, a photographer as well (c/o the photos above). Kyle and I are avid indoor rock climbers, and I love bringing my camera with me to capture fellow climbers on the wall.  


My first camera was a Pentax K1000 which I will never part with. I was grateful to start my passion while film was still the norm, processing my own film and making prints in my colleges darkroom. I have an appreciation of the lost art now that it's all digital; though digital has its perks too! I specialize in Portraits which include: (families, seniors, maternity, etc.), but I also shoot weddings. When I started studying photography, I wasn't 100% on making weddings my focus; and I feel completely different now. I love seeing the joy and happiness on each couples faces when I first meet them, during the engagement session, and as they tie the knot. Knowing that they've chosen me to document their "Best Day Ever" is truly an honor. Getting all of those memories caught on camera is especially rewarding when I look on the back of my camera and smile, sometimes with a tear or 2. It gets me excited for the editing process! Now that I'm married, I try to capture images that I would want to see in my wedding album, along with others I already have in mind. I can't wait to be a part of your special day!
