I am Stephanie Carlton. A lifelong Colorado girl with a romantic at heart, who loves to laugh, and gets excited to meet new people and document their stories of life. I specialize in intimate wedding, elopement and lifestyle portrait photography and am inspired by real and raw moments with a passion for light and movement. The way a groom tears up when his eyes meet his brides down the aisle, a bride’s wind blown curls blowing around her face as she says “I do”, a child’s dirty toes as he runs barefoot around his parents ankles, or the caress of a new mama with her crying babe. I believe the little details are so important and help tell the story, your story. If what I photograph moves me then I feel I have done my job. “I don’t shoot what it looks like, I shoot what it feels like.” – unknown
Based out of Montrose with my amazing firefighter husband and two beautiful daughters. I believe the simple moments in life spent with the people you love and love you back are the most memorable.
