"Stefan did such an amazing job with our engagement photos. from location, to poses, to making us feel so comfortable. He is very personable and it is so clear to see that he is truly passionate about his work. I always felt that we were in good hands. We will use Stefan forever from now on for all our picture needs!

My Photography Philosophy

BE COLORFUL

A 'colorful' image doesn't just mean it has a lot of colors. By definition it also expresses interest, liveliness, and excitement. I achieve this by being shutter-ready and intentional when I edit. I look for color balance and where to place emphasis to transform a picture into a photograph that tells a story.


STAY AUTHENTIC

When you're comfortable, your authenticity shines through. I take time to prep my couples beforehand for the key moments, whether grand or intimate so you'll be comfortable when those moments arrive. I'll be there to guide you through the rest to create lasting memories.


HAVE FUN!

The saying goes 'people remember how you made them feel'. I vow to bring only joy and enthusiasm to your day with a quick wit and cheerful energy. When you look back after our session, you will see genuine laughter and happiness in the enchanting images and remember the good time we had.

"Best photographer in the DMV area! Very professional and flexible, wonderful with children (and unphotogenic adults too!) I've worked with Stefan on multiple occasions and I'm always blown away by the results. Always incredible experiences. Hire him, you won't regret it!"

Pricing & FAQ


"Stefan did a phenomenal job with our proposal session! During the months leading up to our session, he was approachable for questions and remained very flexible. He also provided us with a super helpful style guide that made picking outfits less stressful. He knows the DC area very well and had great tips for locations/lighting/poses! We felt very comfortable during the entire process because of Stefan's kindness and excellent communication. Highly recommend!!!
