Meet Stephanie

With so many options for photographers out there, what makes Whimsy and Wilderness Photography the right choice? 

The answer is right there in the name! Classically posed, fine art photography is utterly stunning, but I am here for those looking for something a little more, well, whimsical. Working almost exclusively outdoors, I want to capture your moments of laughter and love, whether it’s a lifestyle session in your own backyard, or a mountaintop elopement. Will you still get a couple shots of everyone posed and looking at the camera? If you want it, absolutely! But I specialize in capturing you for who you are. 

Based in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and originally from Virginia, I travel through the natural beautiful of the Southern Appalachians to capture your moments–and adventure is part of the fun! If you are planning a vacation to this area and want to capture your children playing as you explore a new trail, I will hike with you! And given the large number of beautiful vistas across the southeastern United States, I will hike whatever mileage to a mountain peak to photograph your rugged elopement. Planning an adventure in another part of the country but still want to work together? Send a message, and we can talk about travel and destination sessions!

I am a frequent hiker and mother of two, always looking for new adventures for my family and for my clients. Go ahead and schedule a consultation today so we can start planning your session!

I am a staff photographer, Branch Ambassador, and occasional blogger for the non-profit Hike It Baby, and a 2018 and 2019 winner of the Virginia State Parks Get Outside! Photo Contest. I have been featured in Backpacker and Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine.
