Masshole with a wandering soul, serving New England + Montana!
I'm Stephannie, yes with two n's (thanks Mom)! I'm a wanderer at heart and travel often between my current home, New England and my old home, Montana! My world is fueled by adventure and a good Whiskey mule. National Parks have my heart, food is my love language (mainly chicken and waffles), and I love me some Tyler Childers. In my spare time, I love to go hiking, hang out with my dogs, or visit a local farmers market. I've been a photographer for 9 years, and this has been my full-time gig for 4 years now!
I specialize in adventurous elopements and intimate weddings (100 guests max). My style is bold and vibrant, with a combination of dramatic black and whites, and rich colors. My desire is that my clients feel connected to me and vice versa, so that beautiful moments happen organically. If you want to snowmobile up a mountain or dance in the rain, I am always ready for an adventure! I love working with couples who are breaking standard wedding traditions, and who stay true to themselves throughout the wedding planning process. I created a magazine called "Plan the Marriage, not the Wedding" exactly for this reason!
After the flowers have wilted, the cake has been eaten, and the music has stopped, the images I create will be forever, because I'm more than just your photographer, I'm your storyteller.
A little about me...
Brendan and I have known each other since we were 12! I know, cute right?! We reconnected after almost a decade of living completely different lives, and in January of 2022 we decided on forever!

National Park Junkie
It is my life's goal to visit every single U.S. National Park! So far, I've crossed off: Yellowstone, Glacier, Grand Teton, Badlands, Acadia, and Smoky Mountains! Grand Teton has my heart, though! PS. If you get married in a National Park, I take $100 of your package and donate it to that park!

We hired Stephannie for our elopement photos and she went above and beyond to make our day special. She's definitely up for an adventure, hiking and snow included. She even scouted out places for the ceremony since we're not from Montana. Not only do the pictures look great, but I now have a friend and someone I will turn to for future projects.

My husband and I absolutely adored working with Stephannie as our wedding photographer! We crossed paths serendipitously, and it was truly a blessing. Stephannie went above and beyond with all the details before, during, and after our wedding. She was very easy to work with, flexible, professional, thoughtful about family dynamics, answered countless questions, and is just so genuinely kind and sweet. Stephannie captured all the beauty, people, moments, feelings, and joy of our day. Our family & friends couldn’t believe how beautiful our wedding photos are and made comments like, “Did you guys have two photographers? She got all the angles!” or “Wow, I can’t believe how she captured everyone’s feelings!” We’d recommend her to anyone, and we hope we get to work with her again in the future!
