Hi, I'm Steph!

I have loved photography for as long as I can remember. I love working with people and my passion is portraiture. I have been shooting professionally for over 20 years. I graduated from Boston University with a Journalism degree before working at the CT newspaper, the New Haven Register. Leaving behind winter and film, I moved to LA where I began working as a set photographer and photo assistant. I had the opportunity to work with many actors, musicians and models while out west and honed my studio skills. Back east some years later, I opened my own photo studio in Boston's famous North End called Savas Studios.

Several years and 3 kids later, my family and I have settled in Wilmington and we are loving the beach life.

I also freelance for local magazines like STROLL Porter's Neck and WILMA. When I'm not home with my kids or working, I enjoy playing tennis and practicing yoga.


“Steph had me laughing and having the best time during my shoot, which was no small feat because I was exhausted! The photos she took are OUTSTANDING! I highly, highly recommend her! She was very communicative throughout the process, on time for the shoot, and totally had it all together. And she's a lovely person!”

“Stephanie is amazing at what she does! She recently did an incredible downtown sunset shoot for my family. Not only are the pictures beautiful, but she was lovely and patient with my little ones ages 6 and 2. She captured the best pictures and so quickly, which is a must with little ones. It was such a great experience. I highly recommend!!!!”

“Steph provided an absolutely wonderful experience for our family! She was so sweet and kind with our daughter and obviously made her very comfortable. The photos she captured have become treasured memories for us already! We would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to have a positive photography experience! Not to mention getting absolutely beautiful images!”
