My aim is to capture the essence of your relationship in the most natural way possible to give you photographs that authentically reflect who you are as a couple. I focus on telling your whole story, from the emotions and energy to the details of your wedding day.

I fell in love with the magical darkroom process at age 11, which led to earning a BFA magna cum laude in photography at the Rochester Institute of Technology. After working as a photo assistant in New York City for top photographers, I started my own business almost a decade ago. Since then, I’ve photographed clients all over the world, many who have ended up becoming dear friends. My work has appeared in publications such as The New York Times, Conde Nast Traveler, Inside Weddings, The Knot, Elle Mariage (Japan), Green Wedding Shoes, Carats & Cake, Wedding Chicks, and Destination I Do.

When I’m not working, you’ll find me dreaming up my next wild adventure, hiking in the woods with our little dog Moose, or getting lost in an art museum. I love dancing to the music my husband plays on his piano, wine by a campfire with friends, The Office references, and hugs over handshakes.

Whether you’re having a grand, black tie affair, intimate backyard evening, or adventurous elopement, I’d love to hear about the vision you have for your wedding. I respond to emails within 24 hours, M-F. studio@stephaniebrauer.com
