hi, my name is steph murray.

i left the thing i went to college for to follow my passion of photography.

don’t worry i certainly still have the student loans.

but, that’s not the point.

let’s be honest, there are so many beautiful photographers out there. i’m not going to tell you i’m better than they are. the truth is, art is so personal and we all have our own style and creative vision.

not to over-self promote or anything, but i’m a catch. maybe it’s my quick wit, that keeps sessions fun and light, or my natural ability to make people in front of the lens feel at ease. maybe it’s my social work background. i love capturing what makes each relationship meaningful and special. above all, i feel most proud when my couples turn to me at the end of our session and say, “that was way more fun than we expected, steph!”

i love warmth, smiles, and genuine laughs.


i get my love of humor and hijinks from my family

want to hear what my other clients say about working with me? take a look

“Stephanie was our engagement and wedding photographer. She came to our destination wedding in Riviera Maya in March of 2018. Stephanie is incredibly professional and responsive. She asks for feedback about what the customer would like, but also asks for input and provides recommendations. From a male’s perspective, some photos or poses can seem ‘cheesy’ or awkward. Stephanie does a very good job of letting males know how important it is or why a certain pose or shot is worth it. I couldn’t recommend Stephanie more for couples or individuals trying to capture their true happiness through photos.”

Nick & Megan, March 2018


“Steph..... what can I say?? These are amazing!!! You captured every moment that I hoped had been captured PLUS some I didn’t even remember happening. You have such a talent and I can’t even begin to thank you enough. I’m not sure how I found such a gem through the thousands of photographers out there.. but I’m so thankful I did! You’re the best. Thank you for taking your time and not rushing through out photos just to get them to us. I know you take your time on each photo and that shows just how much you care about your clients.

Thank you!!! We love our pictures!!”

Erica & Zach, September 2018

“Stephanie! You are amazing!!! I’m so in love with all these pictures!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will definitely be recommending you to everyone I know!!!”

-Katie & Tyler March 2018

“We can’t recommend Steph enough! She did our engagement and wedding pictures and she truly is so talented. Not only that, but she makes you feel so comfortable and captures genuine emotions. I have no doubt that Steph will be our go-to photographer for years to come!”

Courtney & Nelson, May 2018
