Check out my work

Meet Stephanie

I'm so glad you're here! I am a photographer based in Rochester, New York and the heart behind Cor + Lux. I currently specialize in natural light photography and am a sucker for weddings & love stories. My job is to capture the candid and intimate moments between you and your loved ones.

A little bit about me...

My love for photography started at a young age as I grew up watching my father thrive as a research and development scientist at Kodak. He knew all about the importance of light, the science behind it, and how cameras and film operate. I watched him set up little scenes in our basement and photograph them! We always had cameras on hand in our home and I couldn't wait to get the film developed after a special family event! 

In 2018, after having my very talented friend capture pictures of me and my girls, I told her that photography had always been an interest of mine. She graciously allowed me to come along with her to some shoots, use her equipment, and test out my ability. The rest is history!

I reside in Chili, New York with my two girls, Emma and Nora. During the day, I am a paralegal and HR manager for a local women-owned law firm in downtown Rochester! Capturing beautiful images is a creative outlet for me and I am so fortunate to be able to live out this dream. I can't wait to capture your memories for you.

xo, Steph

Stephanie was a delight to work with. She is extremely talented and provided a comfortable environment for our daughters. She encouraged them to demonstrate their personalities in photos. We all had fun, because of Stephanie and her vision. We will continue to have Stephanie capture our moments and would definitely recommend!

Stephanie did an amazing job of taking pictures of our one year old, both on her birthday and with her big sister for holiday family pictures. She is wonderful to work with and always has a fantastic vision for bringing ideas to life. I highly recommend using Stephanie for all your photos your family needs. You will not be disappointed!
