Boutique Workshops For Creatives

Workshops should be the place for learning instead of fighting with another photographer for a shot. That is why I've created an education and workshop experience where every creative gets a fighting chance to grow.

Meet Steph

Photographer - Educator

I have been a wedding photographer and business owner for over thirteen years with three successful businesses and am here to help you thrive!

Helping photographers has become a true passion. I love being able to educate on subjects that can truly help a business grow.


"My wife and I attended Steph workshop in Palm Springs and it's been one of the best decisions we've made for our career. Not just for the education and one on one teachings but more for the community we got a chance to get to know and work side by side with. I've attended workshops before and they can be a bit intimidating and challenging.


Steph's workshop was intimate and safe. safe to ask questions without judgement and safe to be bold and try different things during the sessions she put together. She allowed us to try things and then popped in and showed us what she would do. Allowing us to be creative and then challenging us to see things differently.

Highly Highly recommend her workshops!! She is there to help and doesnt hold back. She doesn't see other photographers as competition rather part of her community, and she's been there to help us throughout the year!! "

"Steph's Workshop was my first ever workshop! And it was GREAT! I loved how she taught and instructed us. I felt free and comfortable to ask questions because of how intimate the workshop was. It was great to hear my questions heard and answered with no fluff, Steph went straight to the point! Steph taught things from directing our clients, to workflows, to editing. I implemented the things I have learned and I am having great results.""

March 2023 we are having an 8 person workshop at Steph's home in Arizona. Attendees are invited for a quiet meet and greet dinner Sunday March 12th at a local Mexican Restaurant. The next two days will be filled with morning education. We will go over submitted images, editing a few shoots from start to finish and a wedding teaser. We will learn techniques that Steph teaches in her one on one mentoring sessions and will use different profiles. Each attendee is asked to submit images that we can work thru. After a full morning of editing we will head to the desert and capture a real life couple. Steph will show how she poses and the settings she uses on her cameras to get that dreamy film effect. Day 2 will be editing the images you shot the afternoon before. Attendees are asked to bring a computer so the learning can be affective and any issues can be solved in real time.


Breakfast and Lunch will be provided both days.


A Note: These shoots are not detail-focused. Our workshops focus on the meaning of an image. Creating a relationship with your subject is one of the most important things I teach. This workshop is for those wanting to step out of the industry mold and create authentic images. There will not be tables-capes or flat lays. We are here to truly tell a story with our subjects and the backdrops where we place them.


No one workshop is alike and so during the Arizona Editing Workshop will be focused on educating on the following:

  • Creating a smooth and easy workflow
  • Film Matching
  • Matching multiple cameras will be consistent throughout
  • Creating a style in your editing that fits your artistic vision
  • Natural and Authentic Posing
  • Creating a sense of calm and enjoyment when working with your clients
Who is this for

This workshop is for anyone with a camera in their hand and wants to create a successful photography business. You do not need to be a pro or even shoot film. We are here to learn from one another and help each other become successful photographers.


There are 8 available slots for this Workshop. The boutique experience is meant to give each attendee ample time to create their own individual images and edit those shoots without pressure or time constraints.


When: March 12-14

Where: Mesa, Arizona

How Much: $1500 Per Attendee (50% deposit to reserve your spot)


We hope to see you there!

  2. Hotel Valley Ho- If you want t o be in the middle of downtown scottsdale, check out this super cute and colorful hotel. It's walking distance from the heart of Scottsdale.
  3. Mountain Shadows - If you want s ome stunning mountain views check out this location. Its a little over 30 min from the house in Mesa and is in the luxury part of Scottsdale.


  1. Red White & Brew - Really good brick oven Pizza that is nearby. Great outside seating as well.
