I'm a Southern California based wedding photographer, specializing in beautiful and authentic storytelling. 

Hello! I'm Stefani

welcome to my blog

Metropol Banquet, Glendale | Wedding | Sarah + Dave

After our initial meeting and their engagement session back in November, I knew this was going to be a wedding to remember.  Not only did they have me in stitches throughout their e-session – which if you haven’t seen, you can do so HERE – but Sarah and Dave are the kind of people that make you instantly feel comfortable around them and like you’ve been the best of friends for ages.  So it really shouldn’t have come as a surprise upon my arrival the morning of their wedding that I was greeted with that exact same kindness and warmth by the rest of their family too.  This is a family that so obviously adores one another and their love and joy is just infectious.

I have tried again and again to pinpoint a favorite moment of the day and it is simply impossible.  From the moment the day started until the reception was being shut down, every moment was filled with so much joy, laughter, love and support for these two that it made the entire day so incredibly special and such an honor to witness, let alone capture.  Words really cannot do this day justice, so I’m going to have to let the photos do the talking here…  Enjoy!!


Would you believe it if I told you her mom, Robyn, handmade each of these invitations?  While her dad, Sheldon, painted the portrait of them?  What an incredible job.  If that’s not love, I don’t know what is!


Mr B’s did such a beautiful job with these bouquets!  They are just gorgeous.

The way these two look at each other.  I mean seriously.  Could this moment have been any sweeter?

I just love that! ^

Pasadena City Hall.


These girls were dancing up a storm all night!  So cute!!

DJ Sammy Flash absolutely killed it.  Not a dull moment all night!

Can anyone say “photobomb”?  Ha!

Sarah and Dave, I can’t seem to find the words that will accurately convey not only how special your wedding was or how incredibly sweet your family and friends are, but just how much I absolutely adored every second spent working with you two over the past few months.  You are without a doubt perfect together and from the bottom of my heart I am honored and grateful to have met you and have been a part of this special time in your lives.  You deserve all the happiness in the world and I can not wait to see what comes next for you two!
