My name is Stephanie Sonju. My friends call me Sonj, so you can too! I’ve lived in over 60 (Yes! SIXTY!) homes during my 38(ish) years on this planet. I started grade school in Egypt, vacationed with my family in Bali, Cyprus, Germany, and Switzerland, and started high school in Taiwan. Growing up, my parents took thousands of photos, but the only physical memories I have to tell those stories are a handful of prints and a small stack of family photo albums. That’s probably why I’m such a stickler for printed work, and why I strive to get a handcrafted heirloom album in the hands of all of my clients. It’s also why I still feel the need to move every couple of years, and explains my obsession with booking flights to faraway lands. If I'm not photographing weddings or documenting how weird kids really are, I’m trying desperately to get my four besties to day-drink - I mean brunch with me, working to eradicate the band Journey from all wedding receptions, stalking my kick-ass niece on Instagram (they grow up so fast), or wondering why my cat doesn’t love me.

Julie's fascination with photography started early. Hanging in her family home were two side-by-side portraits: one of her sister, perfectly coiffed and surrounded by carefully arranged stuffed animals; and one of Julie, tangled hair, one sock falling down and struggling to put on a pair of shoes. Julie passed those photos every day until the idea that people and character should be in photographs was as second nature as bee-bopping to ’80s music. Fast-forward fifteen years and you will meet a self-made, successful, award-winning artists who, despite her interest in all visual mediums, has devoted herself exclusively to candid moment driven photojournalistic photography in Key West. Below the bubbly surface that will charm both bride and groom is a serious professional and incredible artists. [Key West Wedding Photographer]
My focus is connecting, creating, and sharing with people: photography is a beautiful avenue for that. I began documenting weddings many years ago in college & have simply never really stopped. It's often the happiest day of someone's life, what a treat to experience that alongside them. I'm addicted to the challenge of making portraits beautiful regardless of the venue, weather, or circumstances. And now, it's incredible to see clients repost those photos for their anniversaries, celebrating as many as 15 years together! I've had the pleasure of shooting worldwide, from Oregon to Florida, France to Bahamian cruises, Chicago to Arizona, and so many dynamic places in between. Each couple has their own ideas of how to celebrate their love and I feel such it's such an honor when I'm chosen to document that for them. I don't aim to orchestrate their day but to photograph it in a way that captures all that they wish to remember it by. It gives me intense joy to think of generations from now flipping through wedding albums I create and these images becoming woven into their family's histories. What's not to love about two people so madly in love they're ready to promise their lives to partner up together. Beyond my camera, I'm a wife and mother in Florida who's addicted to dance fitness classes and gardening. There are few things I enjoy more than dinner parties with friends, funny chickens in my backyard, and laughing children in the pool. [Sarasota Wedding Photographer]
Michael describes himself as “a real-moments photographer”. He strives to create bold, artistic portraits that are worthy of celebration. His unique perspective and down to earth personality translates well with clients, and he takes time to get to know all of his wedding couples. Michael likes to push the limits of creativity and thrives off of spontaneity. He focuses on the story of the day and how it unfolds, documenting the romance and love. When Michael was in high school, his grandfather gave him his first camera, a Kodak Ektra 100 and he began shooting film. It was during this time that the seed was planted for Michael’s unique eye for composition. A lifelong soccer player, Michael played goalkeeper in high school and college. As a goalkeeper, you have to anticipate movements, much the same way you have to anticipate special moments happening at a wedding. His documentarian style captures these fleeting moments creating images that are authentic and timeless. Each year, Michael shoots around 50 full-day weddings, including many destination and elopement weddings. An avid outdoorsman, Michael enjoys traveling to new places and exploring the beauty of the natural world. He loves all activities on the water including fishing, boating, and surfing. Michael is inspired by nature, light, abstract design and the love he witnesses between his couples. [Asheville Wedding Photographer]
I discovered photography when I was living in Australia. I wanted to show my family and friends the beautiful landscapes of this very singular country and to share my new life and adventure with them. Later on I started taking portraits of people and life scenes. Photography became an excuse to please my curiosity, to discover new angles of human beings and their cultures. I wanted to go where I had never dared to go before. When I take pictures, I am traveling and experiencing new ways of living in which I can express myself and feel fullfiled. With that same idea in mind of taking pictures in the heat of the moment, I started photographing weddings. I first took pictures of my friends’ weddings, and then little by little, through networking, I was brought to this very peculiar wedding universe that I enjoy. What is important for me is to capture the moment and keep it real and authentic; every action has to remain spontaneous, every emotion has to be caught in an instant. That is why I am an active member of the WEDDING PHOTOJOURNALIST ASSOCIATION. Every wedding picture is a challenge. I am 100% involved, living the emotion, and trying to keep it as real as I can in my photo reports. Over the course of one day I tell your story and keep your memories . . .

I have had a camera in my hand since I was about 7 years old. Photography is truly a passion for me and I am fortunate enough to mix my work with my passion. I attended Hope College in Holland, MI and graduated with a degree in Art focusing in Photography and Ceramics, and a degree in Psychology. I currently reside in San Antonio, Texas with my husband and son. We are expecting our second child this spring. Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. I would be honored if you would allow me the privilege of sharing your moments and helping tell your story. [San Antonio Wedding Photographer]
