a California based wedding + elopement photographer.


wife + dog mom

I like people, I especially like photographing people that are having a good time.

I'm all about the adventure!

the great outdoors is the place for me. a road trip, hiking a mountain or running through traffic for the perfect shot! I'm truly about documenting raw, genuine moments and emotion. I'm going to capture all the candid, real moments of a wedding, even the ones where you are crying with laughter or falling over drunk. I pinky promise I won't pose you in a cheesy, dated fashion or make you feel uncomfortable or self conscious. I truly just live for all the real moments.


I'm just stoked you’re here and considering me as your wedding photographer!

 If you connect with that, head over to my contact page + gimme your details so I can be your professional third wheel!


with love + exploration,

Stephanie Portugal
