- Ladera Ranch, CA
Stephanie Adriana's award winning work can be found in Cowboys and Indians Magazine, Covers and articles for Ladera Ranch Magazine, Coto de Caza Quarterly, Wrangler Magazine, Hotels, Restaurants and Homes around the country. Stephanie also enjoys photographing Destination and Celebrity Weddings, Modeling Headshots, Budoir, Engagement and Family Portraiture.
Stephanie travels the country teaching photography workshops and is commissioned to do private consultations and Photography Expeditions for those looking to improve on composition and work on perfecting their Fine Art Photography, while somehow still finding the time to work on her own Fine Art Photography for Galleries and Clientele.
Baywatch, Teen magazine, Shape, Muscle & Fitness, Modern Bride, Bugle Boy, movies and commercials are what Stephanie did before she found her passion for photography. Having traveled all over the world in many different cities and countries working with many famous and talented photographers Stephanie was able to shape her eye for light, posing and composition. It wasn't until Stephanie met Val Westover that the technical aspects of photography would be revealed so that she could develop and refine her incredibly artistic photographic style.
" Life is so beautiful to me, I am constantly awed and inspired by the beauty that surrounds me, so much so that all I want to do is "Capture that moment in time Forever" with my camera.
I am terribly distracted by color! I'm overwhelmed by the desire to capture it as I see it, brights, darks, brilliant hues and rich tones.... in all of their glory! Some times the beauty of a scene or situation completely captivates me and I'm compelled to photograph it until I've captured it perfectly........ What an awful affliction to have!! For me time stands still when I'm shooting, I get lost in the moment, I visualize The Wedding, Engagement or Budoir Session before I even start shooting and it sets the tone for capturing amazing magical moments even before the first shot is fired!
Photography is my life, I find inspiration, strength, solace and balance while I'm shooting. Through the art of photography I have the ability to show others how I see life and the world around me..... And all I know is that is pretty cool. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would have so much fun doing our Capturing True Emotion Photography workshops, our participants are incredible, their willingness to learn and the enthusiasm they bring to our classes make what I do so fun and rewarding! I'm constantly having "Pinch me Moments!"
I also want to take a moment to thank Val for giving me and so many others the gift of photography without Val and his incredible passion for what he does, I wouldn't be the photographer I am today."
"123 like a bird I sing 'cause you've given me the most incredible wings"
