I’m Steph, hi! I live with my filmmaker husband and monkey of a daughter in the bushy outskirts of Melbourne. I was given my first camera when I was 16 (and it was 18), back when it was all film, and I’ve been taking photos ever since. It’s the happiest honour to have this wonderful job photographing weddings.
I work as unobtrusively as possible at every wedding; I believe my photography should be about the wedding, rather than the other way around. My emphasis is on creatively documenting the day as it unfolds around me, capturing emotion, atmosphere and moments big and small.
There’ll be some portraits in the mix too of course. I want to photograph you being and looking like yourselves so rather than contorting you with over-the-top posing directions, I offer gentle guidance where necessary and keep our time together relaxed and spontaneous.
The end result is a collection of photos that brings your wedding back to life; an evocative record of you two, loved-up to the brim and surrounded by your favourite people, enjoying one of the very best days of your lives.

A little on your process
If you’re interested in booking me, let’s start with a chat over coffee/wine/the phone about your initial ideas and plans for the wedding, and so you can get a sense of me too. Once booked, I’m on board to answer questions, discuss ideas, nut out timings, location scout, and plan how to capture your wedding in the best possible way. On the day, I’m friendly, easy-going and unobtrusive; you’ll sometimes forget I’m there, but rest assured I’m constantly observing, reacting and creating, as well as checking the time, the light, the weather and your need for a drink.
Areas of service and travel policy
I’m located in Melbourne and love to shoot weddings all around Victoria.
