—  About

Stephani is a photographer in Fort Wayne and surrounding areas that specializes in intimate lifestyle photography.

Born and raised into a family of artists, I knew from a very early age that I wanted to be a photographer. My dad is a "professional amateur" photographer, and I grew up watching him play with his camera. Whether it was photographing me and my sister in the Halloween costumes my mom made, capturing me on the softball diamond, or on stage performing a musical, he was always there with a camera in his hand. Flash forward {many} years later and I find myself following in my dad's footsteps.

Among all of the fun things I do, photography has been the most rewarding. I was gifted the ability to understand my clients and capture special moments, sometimes without them even knowing I snapped a picture. I could say that I've been shooting for 12 years, but none of that matters if I don't do my part and provide quality photos for my clients. When you choose me as your photographer, I do my best sit down and get to know you on a personal level. And then on your special day, I will do my best to capture those special moments without you even knowing I am there! I left the posed and cheesy pictures behind a few years ago. I have switched to a more minimalist and photojournalist style photography, capturing life as it is and not some forced photo. You will find that I encourage in home lifestyle shoots. Your house is messy? Great! So is mine! Your kids are crazy? I get it. Mine too. Trust me. Those are the moments you want to capture!
