your southern california based wedding and elopement photographer
I'm here to help you make your elopement dreams into reality
Your love story is unique, so why should your wedding day feel like anyone else’s? When you hire me, you get so much more than just a photographer. I’ll help guide you through the whole process, from brainstorming your dream day, provide you with resources, inspiration, vendor recommendations and tons of tips I’ve learned along the way (and through my own experience) to help you create a day that feels genuinely you!
Since we’re friends now, here’s a little about me
Hey there! I'm Estephania (or Steph for short), a Southern California-based wedding and engagement photographer and educator with a passion for capturing moments that are as authentic as they are beautiful.
When I’m not behind the lens, you can find me spending time with husband, family and friends, probably enjoying a good cafe de olla (traditional Mexican coffee) or working on some type of DIY project. My love for creativity is at the core of everything I do, and I'm on a mission to empower and encourage others to learn, grow, and live more intentionally. For me, being a photographer isn't just a job; it's a privilege and I take it seriously, knowing that I'm entrusted with capturing some of the most beautiful and meaningful moments in my couples' lives.
My goal? To provide you with photos that are not only stunning but also deeply meaningful and authentic. I want you to look back on these images over the years and be transported back to the incredible moments and the love you felt. I'm all about couples who embrace the wind in their hair, live in the moment, and prioritize the connection between them above all else on their big day.
So, if that sounds like you, I AM YOUR GIRL!
One of the things that stood out to me was ... how truly present everyone was for every moment.
I’m not exaggerating when I say my cheeks hurt from smiling so big looking through Erin&Brandon’s wedding gallery.
It’s an intimate moment shared by the bride and groom just before the ceremony.

Sweet Words From Past Clients
“We did a shoot in Joshua Tree with Estephania and her work is BEAUTIFUL!!! She is so talented at capturing love and emotion in her photos and knows exactly how to pose a couple to make them look effortless and natural. I'm so impressed by the tones in her photos and LOVE how she edits to keep a beautiful golden glow that is clearly professional without being overly edited. Her style is definitely timeless, which I think is so important for big milestone photos that you'll keep forever! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a super sweet and gifted photographer who will cheer you on the whole time and deliver an amazing product!”
