You want to ensure that every detail is photographed seamlessly and that your vision is executed... a photographer that gives you a mix of BEAUTIFUL posed portraits and some candid ones because... you know, you love the way you look at each other or the way your nose crinkles when you laugh. You want a photographer who just GETS how important your new marriage is and who will truly celebrate the meaning of your wedding day with you. You want a photographer who is efficient and organized, and will be a wealth of knowledge for you as you plan your big day. As a couple, you LOVE planning all the little details, but you're often described as laid back and know that if something goes wrong... hey, at the end of the day, you're married, right? You want a photographer who GETS IT and who will guide you on your wedding day to make decisions on what feels right for YOU as a couple...
Then I am seriously SO EXCITED because that means we're the PERFECT fit for your big day! I'm a wedding photographer who photographs classic weddings for laid back yet detail oriented couples. I love taking my couples vision and bringing it to life with light and genuine images! I want to photograph YOU as a couple and tell the story of your day, as well as be your go-to girl to help keep things organized and efficient when it comes to your photography. My goal is for you to sit back and RELAX once your wedding day comes, knowing I've got you... because at the end of the day, the important part is you're becoming husband and WIFE! After photographing over 100 weddings, I've given many couples a genuine, organized wedding experience that they absolutely LOVE, over and over again!
If we haven't met yet, hello and WELCOME! I'm Stephanie, a photographer from Columbus, Ohio who specializes in weddings, engagements, and anniversaries. After photographing over 100 weddings over the past five years, I've had the pleasure of serving SO many Stephanie Kase Couples and photographing weddings is truly my THING that brings me joy! I currently live in downtown Columbus with my amazing hubby, Michael, and my ADORABLE Sheepadoodle, Ember. I'm a huge fan of Chai lattes (I drink them DAILY. The obsession is SO REAL). Any day I'm not photographing my sweet couples, you can probably find in leggings and a sweatshirt working at home, or educating other photographers to up-level their businesses!
He is my best friend, biggest encourager, and the love of my life. We were married on July 9, 2017 and it was the best day of our lives. We got married at Oak Grove at Jorgensen Farms on a beautiful sunny summer day! If you want to learn more about our wedding day story, click here! I love doing life with him and having him by my side! Marriage is such a beautiful gift and I love growing in our marriage every day, as well as encouraging my couples how awesome marriage is.
Michael and I recently just got a Sheepadoodle (Old English Sheepdog + Standard Poodle) named Ember! We added her to our family in July of 2019 and we adore her. Yes, I'm that crazy dog lady who even has an Instagram for her dog @emberthesheepadoodle! She is the biggest sweetheart and we love her to pieces! If you want to read an entire blog post of our first month with her (told ya I'm a crazy puppy mom), click here!
I confess, I don't love coffee... I can't even stand the smell! But chai lattes have my heart. They’re my go-to drink wherever I go! Venti chai latte with three pumps of vanilla? YES, please! Any other non coffee drinkers out there? I just can't get enough!! You can frequently see my obsession over on my Instagram where I frequently share about my day to day life!
One of my favorite things about serving my couples is the RELATIONSHIPS I develop with them. I seriously LOVE creating genuine relationships with my couples and pouring into them throughout their wedding experience! Not only does it bring me so much JOY in my business, but it allows me to serve you even better by photographing your love in a genuine way.
In addition to serving couples, I love serving photographers who are looking to take their business to the next level. If you’re a photographer who’s looking for education on running a profitable, thriving business, I’d love to pour into you!
