Stephanie West lifestyle wedding photographer columbus and lancaster ohio travel destination worldwide

Hi! I'm Stephanie and I am an intensely hopeless romantic. (Maybe that's why I love shooting weddings so much!)

My approach to wedding photography is to make sure your photos are authentic, natural and fun. There's no reason wedding photography should be stuffy and stressful! 

Why do I do it? Well, photographs are important. My favorite memories of my Grandma are sitting in the kitchen with her, going through photo albums while she told me stories about the people in the photos. Photos are your legacy.  

Obviously I love photography but want to know what else makes me tick? Um, coffee. I love it. A lot. And music. And binge watching TV series on Netflix. Has anyone else watched the entire 10 seasons of Friends?! I'm a space geek, I like frequently changing my hair (style and color) and I appreciate a good rom-com. Aaaaaand I may or may not still be waiting for *NSYNC to reunite. 

Oh, and in addition to being a photographer and business owner, I'm a wife and a stay-at-home mom of 4 human and 2 fur-babies. My boys, Wyatt (13) and Toby (4) are crazy sports freaks and my girls, Ginger (8) and Mia (6) are tumbling little gymnastics divas. I am incredibly blessed.

My favorite things to photograph... light and love.

Amy Taylor- Second Shooter/Assistant/Ring Bearer Wrangler

Amy is a dear friend in addition to being an amazing photographer. She is a rockstar mom, a creative mind, a scrapbooking fanatic, lover of tiny little toys and all things Disney. She is a second pair of hands on a wedding day and having her on my team provides another point of view for my clients in their galleries and albums. All of my wedding packages include a second shooter because I believe in what she does, what we do together and especially the value she adds to my business for my clients!
