Kelowna Photographer Stephanie Whiting
Welcome to my website! Although my photographs tell a lot about me, I would like to explain a bit more about myself in writing.
I am a professionally trained photographer. I received my Bachelor of Arts, with a major in Photography from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. Expertise in lighting, composition and Photoshop is important, but to me, photography is more than just knowing how to take a good picture. I am continually striving to ensure that my photos capture the essence of the moment.
Everyone has their own story to tell, and my goal is to capture the story in a creative and imaginative way. Love reflected in the eyes of a recently engaged couple; youthful wonder on a child’s face, wisdom etched lines on the face of an elderly grandfather….this is what makes a photograph timeless and priceless.
It is important that prior to a wedding, engagement shoot or family portrait, I get to know you and what you want. Building relationships with my clients is an integral part of what I do. Knowing who you are helps me capture those sentimental moments….. the tears, the laughter, the shared glances, and the love.
I am enthusiastic and energetic – but equally important – I am also organized and prepared. Nothing can ruin a photoshoot more quickly than a poorly researched location, and a disorganized photographer. Photography is more than a ‘good camera’!
On a more personal note, I am married, and recently celebrated the birth of my first child. I have travelled extensively, and I know that photographing other cultures has added depth to my work.
Give me a call, I would love to chat and together we can explore ideas and possibilities.
Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning. Gloria Steinem
