Hi, I'm Steph!

A little about your photographer

Get to know me

Meet Steph, the heart behind the lens! 

Hey there, I'm Steph – your South Texas wedding photographer, a proud mama, and a loving wife. Over the past 9 years, I've danced through hundreds of wedding stories and countless sweet moments with families and couples, just like yours.

Falling in Love with Weddings:

Picture this: Me, walking down the aisle, my heart beating fast. All that mattered was my groom, the fulfillment of years of prayers and trust in God's plan. I had envisioned a man who would be everything I needed and wanted, and there he was, waiting at the end of the aisle.

Sure, my hair might not have been "perfect," and my entrance might not have been flawlessly choreographed, but none of it mattered. In that moment, it was all about us, about what God had intricately woven together.

The vows? Well, truth be told, I stumbled through them a bit. But in my eyes, it was still perfect. Perfectly us. Perfectly real. Perfectly imperfect.

So here's to the beauty of stumbling through vows and cherishing the authenticity of love. Because sometimes, the most perfect moments are the ones that unfold naturally, capturing the sweet beginning a family.

Why weddings?

Because I'm head over heels for love and all its beautiful beginnings! It blesses me to come along side you during one of the biggest moments in your life. Being behind the camera lets me freeze those enchanting moments, much like the day my own family started its wonderful journey.

Let's turn your special moments into timeless treasures, shall we? Whether it's the sparkle of a ring or the laughter of a family member, I'm here to capture the moments that make your heart skip a beat. Let's create memories that last a lifetime!

Photography

I've been a wedding photographer for 9 years, in that time I've photographed over 250 weddings. I've also photographed and delivered over 400 engagement sessions, and hundreds of family sessions.

Motherhood & Family

I aspire to seamlessly weave the art of capturing precious moments for others while creating a tapestry of cherished memories for my own family. Here's to a future adorned with the clicks of shutters, echoes of laughter, and the everlasting embrace of family love. 

Future

In the chapters ahead, I see a future where my lens continues to tell timeless love stories, capturing the raw beauty of genuine connections. As a mother of three (going on four) boys, my heart yearns for a home blessed with love, laughter, and endless crazy adventures.

I dream of instilling in my boys a love for life's beautiful imperfections and a keen appreciation for the blessings found in every moment.

The Rios Boys

Meet my boys.

Nathan, Noah, and my little Gusty (Gustin). These three little and their daddy are the heartbeat of my life, and every snapshot I take is a love letter to them.

Life with my boys is a beautiful mess, a blend of laughter, adventures, and endless joy. Whether I'm capturing their smiles or their playful antics, every moment frozen in time carries God's blessing of our own family story. I don't know what I would do without them.

So, when you choose me to document your special moments, you're not just hiring a photographer; you're inviting a piece of my heart into yours. Let's create lasting memories together!
