Elena | New York City Portraits

The past three days have been full of a lot of firsts. I sat on a plane flying from D.C. to San Francisco, and as I watched the miniature animated version of our flying machine on the screen in front of me make its way over Chicago, I kept thinking to myself, “This is the furthest […]

Travel Stories | An Ireland Adventure

I got home and could hardly wait to share my photos. A two-week road trip all around Ireland with my camera in hand for the entire thing? Kiiind of a photographer’s dream. (All that was missing was an awesome couple to travel around with and photograph at each destination. Where can I find me one […]

I’m baaack

Well, okay, so maybe I’ve been back state side for five days now, and already have jumped right back into gear with one of the sweetest weddings on Saturday followed by an awe-inspiring beachfront engagement session yesterday evening, but is anything really official until it’s on the blog? I say no! I’ve been (mostly) warding off […]

Gone to the Beach

Let’s go to the beach-each, let’s go get away… I know the blogs been a little quiet this week, but I’m really only a little bit sorry about it. Nicki Minaj has been stuck in my head while I’ve been spending my mornings, afternoons and evenings these past few days laying on the beach, eating delicious […]

Something New

There were a million reasons I needed to take the plunge. Not the least of which being that my blog design was too simple, two years old, and offered no way for brides and grooms to view a concise portfolio of my work. I needed a home for Stephanie Dee Photography on the interenet that […]

Happy Father’s Day & Lessons Learned

In honor of Father’s Day, I present a reflection of the lessons my dad and I have shared with each other over the years. Lessons I’ve learned from my dad: 1) How to rock the ginger genes. (Freckle tan fo’ life!) 2) Sometimes it’s better to listen and learn rather than stubbornly not asking for […]

The Viewfinder: June 2014

Ever since I was little, I always remember my mom loving to garden, and in the 10-acre field surrounding our house, she always had plenty of room to do it. My parents’ property is bejeweled by colorful garden beds, beautiful landscaping and always a bountiful veggie garden. While I was growing up, I didn’t take […]

Happies & Crappies | Threading & Thrones

You’ve seen it before. You’re walking through the mall and you see a big sign outside one of the stores in the sketchy corner section: “Eyebrow Threading.” Well I have no idea what that means, you think, but it sounds terrible. You are correct. Maybe this is over share, but it’s my blog and I’ll write about […]

Thanks, Mom.

To my beautiful, loving Momma: Thank you. They are just two little words that could never compare to the grand scale of the things you’ve done for me, sacrificed for me, but I figure it’s the only place to start. Thank you for letting me sing in the car with a voice that I was […]
