Our current awards
Stephanie has been a photographer since 1999 when she started working with film. She took a few classes in high school and developed her own prints in a dark room. Photography started off as a hobby as it does for a lot of people and after going to school for secondary education she realized that her passion of photography was too much and came back to the industry in 2009. Starting StepOnMe Photography (which was an old nickname in high school) started off slow and in her first year only booked 2 weddings.
It wasn’t until 2012 that things started to get going and by 2014 had secured over forty weddings that year. Things have changed for Stephanie since 2009. She is married, has two beautiful children, Annabelle (5), Jackson (3) and a wonderful caring husband who has been a huge support system during those long weekends and countless nights of editing. Luckily in 2013 she found her other, other half (Kylie) who helps her with more than she can say.
With the help of Kylie, Stephanie is able to shoot and give her 110% to her clients and to the business she has created. Because of the amazing help from not only Kylie but the other associate photographers Stephanie has started to head back to her roots of film photography. Her current work can be featured here on her new photography company.
Due to the demand of running two businesses and having a growing family Stephanie is now only taking clients who want film and digital photography. If you are interested in having Steph photograph your event please send her an email with your wedding date, vision, theme of the day and venue.
Kylie first came to Steponme Photography to be Stephanie’s assistant in 2013. Since then she has grown from 2nd shooter to now an associate photographer and will begin to shoot her own weddings starting this fall. She will be our main Aldea at the Landmark wedding venue photographer. To see more of her work check out her portfolio below.
For all of our packages we offer additional photographers. We love having the ability to provide highly qualified 2nd shooters to give you more beautiful images. There are many advantages to have two photographers at your wedding and we highly recommend considering adding them to your package! Below are some of our staff photographers that we work with side by side.
