Choosing your wedding photographer is no easy task. 

It’s not just about the work.

It’s about the people – the couple – behind the camera. Our experiences, beliefs and zest for life shape our style. Knowing us is as important as knowing our work.

So poke around.

Look at our favorite things. Discover who Stephanie is, and who Ryan is. Get to know us, and you’ll get to know Ahava Studios.


Our photography style is refreshing, warm and heartfelt – as we like to say: real life, slightly better.

You’ll never see fake cloud or sunset overlays in our portraits. You will see raw and overwhelming moments and portraits that truly represent you and your partner and an accurate and beautiful representation of the start of the rest of your lives together, surrounded by all the love from your family and friends.

Your wedding is about you. Not the camera. We don’t re-enact moments or have you do a first look three times in a row for a great wide shot. We want clients who appreciate us and our art – and allow us to be goofy with them and be ourselves.
