Oh hey! I’m Stefanie - with an “F”, not a “PH”!
Sometimes videos tell it better... so watch this first:
A little has changed since that video but I'm pretty sure it still sums me up pretty good. Since then I've also gotten engaged (YAY!) to an amazing guy named Ryan. He's funny, supportive, listens to my crazy rants and like the person in your life - he's my rock. He also does assist/second shoots/videography on almost ALL my wedding photography days so you will most likely meet him too. We also have to furkids - Harvest and Farfel who run our lives pretty good in our off time and give tons of kisses with big personalities. We love travelling (especially for weddings), some nerdy moments of gaming/anime, exploring beautiful BC and of course like many couples - watching Netflix together. We live in the centre of Langley and love how it is the middle ground between the busy life of Vancouver and peaceful areas as you head out to the interior. Anytime we get a chance we're usually up just past Kamloops at Knouff Lake, a little hidden gem in the woods on a mountain.
Photography, to me, is about telling a story from one point of view. This point of view looks for laughter, high energy, full of love, candid moments. Clients who choose a stroll through the woods over the latest TV show, long chats and perhaps a pet or two in their life often become fast friends. These people often also end up being ones who value photography and know that it’s important to capture life’s moments and what happens, rather than a list. If you’re laid back, a bit silly, love to have a good laugh or crack a few jokes I’m sure we’d get along. I know it's scary being in front of a camera, but we can help you feel your best. Find out more with a meeting.
Because we’re all a little quirky…
