I’m so excited to announce my book, officially launching on November 15th! This Modern Romance : The Artistry Technique, and Business of Engagement Photography is published by Focal Press and available right now for Pre Order on Amazon, Kindle, Barnes and Noble and Nook. This book focuses on engagement sessions with an emphasis on directing couples, composition, current trends, styling, location scouting, film and digital capture, and getting your work published. Numerous industry leaders, bloggers, stylists, and real life couples were interviewed for the book and give their advice and perspective on the current and future trends in engagement and wedding photography. This book is a great resource with a ton of information, from lens selection to wardrobe styling.

I had the pleasure of writing this book with my best friend since grade school, Christen Vidanovic, who is writer and photographer living between New York, Hawaii, and San Francisco. We spent countless hours and skype conversations, spanning different states and time zones, to write this book together, and I could not have accomplished this without her!




Hello Stephanie,

I was referred to you by Susan Yee whom spoke nothing but praises of your work. She also said you are most likely completely busy with a new baby! If so, Congratulations!

I am a hair and makeup artist based out of the gold country in Northern California. I will be in Southern California (March7th-14th) visiting family and meeting/working with others in this creative industry. I was wondering if you were at all interested in meet up for a chat and/or have clients looking for hair and makeup styling. I would also be interested in doing a type of collaborate shoot!

Just wanted to reach out to see if you had time and were interested in meeting. Your work is absolutely amazing. Stands apart from most.

To see some of my work you can find it at the following:

Looking forward to hearing from you!

I looked for your book on amazon and only a paperback and a digital version is available. Will you release a hard cover book?


ุˆ”¹à¸¸à¸§à¹ààž²:I was wondering if you ever considered replacing the layout of your blog? It is very well written; I love what you have got to say. But maybe you could create a little more in the way of written content so people can connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of wording for only having one or two photographs. Maybe you can space it out better?

Hi Michelle, the book cover is quite firm, actually in between a soft and hard cover. It is the only version available at this time. Thank you for your interest!


SO excited for you Stephanie!
Looking forward to getting a
copy and spilling over what I
know will be amazing photos!
