A fine art wedding and maternity photographer residing in Princeton, Tx

I love to meet my clients over a cup of coffee and snacks, and get to know one another before we have fun at our session together. I know with crazy schedules it's not always possible to meet in person, that is why I also video chat and do phone consults.

I'm always up to do our sessions at your favorite location, like a favorite park or family farm. I also have a list of places that I love to shoot at! My goal is to make our session fun and relaxing! I want you to feel comfortable around me and in front of my camera. I'll get you laughing because, well, photos should be fun! I love the feeling of leaving a session with new friends.

Leah and Josh

Stephanie is an incredibly talented photographer! We had a fabulous session and I looove the way our photos turned out. *She caught my vision for sure and they are amazing. Low stress, she gives excellent direction and catches shots efficiently! I would definitely recommend for maternity or weddings or engagements!

Danielle & Brent

After we chose a photographer and then decided against that one, I frantically searched for a new one, Stephanie Self responded to one of my requests and I am so thankful she did! From the moment I saw her pictures I knew she was the perfect one! Every picture was beautiful! On the day of the wedding she made sure every picture was taken even when it meant running around outside on the hottest dang day, climbing on railings to get just the right picture and chancing chiggers to get the perfect photo. She was so fun to be around that day along with her 2nd shooter. Her sneak peeks are absolutely gorgeous, and I cannot wait to see the rest! *As our photo album uploads, I find myself looking at the pictures every few minutes. I LOVE every single picture! Thank you so much Stephanie for capturing our wedding day!

Tiffany & Steve

Stephanie is just an amazing photographer and made our day run so smooth. Half the time we didn’t even realize she was capturing all of our memories, yet she was getting the most beautiful pictures of us and our guests. Every posed picture she took never felt forced she makes everyone feel so relaxed. Thanks again for everything!

Samantha & Dave

I can't even think of the words to describe how happy Dave and I are with our wedding day photos. She is a breeze to work with. She honestly cares for what you want and what you need from her. Thank you so much Stephanie for all the hard work your crew and you did. Oh, I love one pic so much it will be put on my credit card with your logo so everyone can see your amazing talent!
