"I approach every wedding, engagement, and bridal session with your love mind, so we can capture what matters most to you."

travel (some of my favorite destinations - England and Greece!) When I'm not behind the camera, you can find me baking something sweet in our kitchen, spending time with my handsome hubby and sweet goldendoodle pup, or grabbing a cup of milky coffee or tea at a local shop. 

I'm Steph - an artist and wedding photographer for the wholeheartedly in love. I believe in marriages even more beautiful than wedding days, and I'm inspired by intimate celebrations filled with meaningful details and an abundance of blooms and greenery. I'm a girl who loves to


Gray Door Photography was named after a small detail with great meaning. I've built my career around documenting the love stories of others, but through naming my business I am able to share a little piece of my own. During our first years as newlyweds, my hubby's job relocated us to a new state each year. Within our first three years of marriage we moved from our hometown in the midwest to two different cities on the east coast, followed by our most recent move to Dallas, Texas. With each relocation there was a new home and with each new home there was, coincidentally, a gray front door.

What may seem like a tiny detail in an early chapter of our story has become a symbol of some of the happiest years of my life. The newness, the adventure, the joy, and the unbreakable bond created when Kyle and I wed all come flooding back to me when I think about our first homes and the gray front doors that welcomed us there.

Gray Door Photography celebrates those sweet feelings and memories not only for my husband and I, but for each couple as they marry and begin their life together.


Your wedding day is much more than the flowers, gowns, and champagne. It's made up of moments that lead into a marriage much more beautiful than any of those things could ever be. One of my greatest joys is serving couples who share that belief. I book only a limited number of weddings each year so I can provide a personalized experience and build a genuine relationship with each of my sweet couples. To me, connecting with my clients is an essential part of creating romantic, organic, timeless images that will be treasured for years as family heirlooms.
