Stephanie

Stephanie's life changed forever when in 2005 she uprooted her life and moved from Mississippi to Boston to work an internship with an established wedding photographer. From there, she launched her own career to shoot 30+ weddings per year with her husband. Their love for Los Angeles and the California golden hour was greater than the stability they had in the South, and they took a risk and made LA home in 2016. As a multi-passionate, Stephanie also is crazy about interior design. She and her husband have completely renovated more than a dozen homes, and now are turning their design capabilities to restoring vintage Airstreams. 

WHAT IS YOUR IDEA OF PERFECT HAPPINESS?

Artisan coffee, light blanket weather, and friends.

IN WHAT HISTORICAL PERIOD WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO HAVE LIVED?

I love the 20’s. I would’ve loved to have danced the night away to Big Band music in the Gatsby’s mansion with my super fancy flapper dress.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE los angeles HANGOUT(S)?

I have a passion for vintage Airstreams and The Resident in the Arts District has a couple of them! So fun to sit in the patio area, gaze at the trailers and enjoy a craft beer. I also love to enjoy coffee with friends at Alfred’s-any location.

WHERE DO YOU FEEL MOST INSPIRED?

Hands-down, at my church- Mosaic. It is truly a community of faith, hope, and love. My soul comes alive each and every time I attend or volunteer for a service. 

WHAT IF I TOLD YOU THAT YOU COULD TRAVEL ANYWHERE RIGHT NOW?

Give me a one-way ticket to Italy, please. I’ve had the opportunity to travel there a couple of times. The scenery is breathtaking, the culture and traditions (wine, let’s be honest) are so special, and I have precious friends that live there as well!

Go-tos

sidecar donuts

This is the “don’t do as I say, but do as I do” one. I didn’t even like donuts until I was introduced to Sidecar. (Undecided of how much of a good thing this is.)

melaleuca

If melaleuca oil can’t fix it, it probably can’t be fixed.

hgtv

All day, all night (whenever I have time)

pink drinks

The husband knows if I ask for a rosé, I am not referring to a flower.

good linens + pillows

If you don't want to ever leave your bed due to the linens and pillow, you have won in life.
