The super short version:  
My name is Stefy. I was born and raised in Germany and moved to the US 12 years ago. I come from a photo journalistic background, shooting for a German daily newspaper, but found out I enjoy wedding photography the most. 
 
Professionally trained overseas, I worked and traveled the world as a documentary and event photographer. I love to capture moments. Telling your story. Like a return button in time. Moments that are not captured, will be lost forever. This sounds a little cheesy.... but if you think about it.. it is very true. Can't wait to hear about your story.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I am located in Newport, Rhode Island but also serve metros like Boston and New York. No travel fee involved in a 75 mile radius.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I LOVE TO TELL STORIES WITH MY PHOTOGRAPHS 
 
I am so grateful that I love what I do and I am  
still excited by each wedding.  
Your special day allows me to create something unique.  
 
I feel honored to photograph this important day in your lives.  
My photographs tell a story. Your story.  
They will capture the excitement, the tears, the joy,  
the laughter, above all the love.  
 
Am I a traditional photographer? No.  
I love to push boundaries and find new ways of telling  
your story: different angles, gorgeous light, unusual perspectives. 
Unobtrusively I always look for creativity.  
Will I take traditional family portraits that your mom  
will love? Absolutely.  
 
I bring years of experience, an artistic eye and 
lots of talent and energy. 
If you are excited about your wedding photos,  
together we can create the most stunning images.  
 
Call me and tell me about your wedding day.  
I am excited to hear about it and I am happy to  
answer all the questions your might have.  
 
Together we can make your memorable day 
unforgettable.  
Stefy

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

I specialize in documentary wedding photography and artsy portraiture.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

Two photographers (one being me), an online gallery with all your photographs, professionally edited. All edited photographs on a thumb drive for you, not watermarked. An engagement shooting to get to know each other better an, to have some fun in front of the camera. Picture it as a trial for your wedding day, including lots of fun.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

Yes, I have a studio in Newport RI, but I also love to Skype or FaceTime with you it that makes it easier.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I have been taking numerous workshops with the most amazing weddings photographers. I admire all of them and can't thank them enough to be a part of my growing. Ryan Brenizer, Joseph Victor Stephanchik, Chrisman Studios, Huy Nguyen, Foundation Workshops.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I will be there for you through the whole wedding process. I will try to make your life easier, with providing knowledge and experience and amazing vendors to work with. People also claim I am easy and fun to work with.
