I'm a wedding photographer and educator based in Columbus, Ohio! 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 also help photographers grow thriving businesses through online education. I currently live in downtown Columbus with my amazing hubby, Michael, and my ADORABLE Sheepadoodle, Ember. Any day I'm not photographing my sweet couples, you can probably find in leggings and a sweatshirt working at home, drinking a chai latte!
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!
I used to be NOTORIOUS for killing every plant I owned, but more recently, I think I've finally found my green thumb! I am just a little obsessed with plants and have collected SO MANY over the past couple years. My favorites are my pothos plants (they're one of my first plants from way back!) and my monstera.
I have a confession to make: I frequently make trips to our kitchen to sneak handfuls of chocolate chips from our cupboard. IT'S SO BAD YA'LL. But oh so good. I'm chocolate chip obsessed and not afraid to admit it!
When you walk into our home, one of the first things you notice is a hutch FILLED with mugs... we recently counted how many mugs we have and came to a total of 52. I mean, it's hard not to pick up yet ANOTHER cute mug when they're only $2.99 at TJ Maxx... right? Tell me I'm not crazy!!
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! Head on over to my Education page for the Stephanie Kase shop, online courses and products, free youtube videos, and more!
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.
