Columbus, Ohio and central Ohio areas engagement and wedding photographer

Stephanie West Photography

Love, simply & naturally.

I believe engagement and wedding photography should highlight who you are as a couple. As two people, in love, meant for each other, forever and happily ever after. Love isn't posed and planned. It's spontaneous and natural and fun. And that is what I convey about you in your images. Heck, that's who I am! My clients love life. They aren't afraid to be silly and might not even mind getting a little bit dirty to capture that dream shot. And they definitely don't let a little bit of rain put a damper on their wedding day.

A little bit about me...

DSC_2547resize.jpg

Hi! I'm Stephanie, lead photographer, laid back fun-haver, head honcho, mom. I've been married to my husband, Chad, for almost 15 years and we have 4 amazing, smart, beautiful kiddos. Wyatt is 13, Ginger is 8, Mia is 6 and Toby is 4. We also have 2 fur babies. The boys are crazy sports fanatics and the girls are tumbling, sassy little divas. If we're not at the ball field or gymnastics practices you can find us sprawled around the living room watching a movie on Netflix and snacking on popcorn. 

I love coffee (that's probably an understatement). I can't turn down pizza. Ever. I love Bruno Mars and Ed Sheeran way more than I should. I shamelessly listen to *NSYNC way too loud in the car, demonstrating all my best waist-up car dancing moves. I live in jeans and t-shirts and seriously love my bubblegum pink Chuck Taylors.

My photographic style is very similar to my personality. Laid back, natural. Simple. I'm a simple girl and I have an appreciation for simple things. I'll be honest, I hate posing. There is definitely a time for it during a wedding day but I think engagement photos and wedding day bridal portraits should capture who you are as two people, together, in love. Your relationship. The way she looks at you. The way he holds your hand. 

Oh, and one more thing. I love to have fun with my clients and I love my clients to have fun and that pours out of every session and every wedding I shoot.

So...  now that we're friends, have a glass of wine, relax, put on your fancy clothes and let's do this!

The dream team

 

Amy Taylor is my second shooter/assistant/ring bearer rangler. 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!
