I'm Stephanie Kozick - a Wedding & Newborn photographer located in East Tennessee. I call Knoxville home, but I'm always up for travel!
Ever since I was a little girl, I knew I was meant to be an artist! Whether it was doodling on anything I had near me, or always doing some sort of craft or artwork. I've always enjoyed photography, and have owned a camera since elementary age.
In 2009, as I was searching for our wedding photographer, I realized my deep love for photography. To me, it was so amazing that someone could do this as a career! I could tell right away the style that I was drawn to, and I wanted to be able to create that for someone else! From then on, I worked toward the goal of becoming a Wedding Photographer. I took classes and did every training I could get my hands on, learned my camera, learned about exposure, lighting, composition, perspective, etc, and practiced like crazy! I learned what elements make a great image... and now I also teach what I've learned over the years to new photographers, or just anyone wanting to learn! (See my Classes page on the menu!)
My style is crisp and vivid, with lots of color, while modern, creative and relaxed. I love real emotion, connections, and personality - and am always so excited to photograph that.
I want you to feel like you can be yourself, and forget that the camera is there. I strive to capture not simply what's happening, or how you look at this time in your life... but how you love one another, how you feel as a couple and what dynamics make your relationship special, the emotions as you recite your vows, the joy and anticipation of expecting a baby, and the tiny details of a newborn... These are the things you'll want to remember as the best times in your life, and cherish the beautiful images that preserve that for you!
I'm married to Ben, my best friend and biggest fan. We have been blessed with two little boys, Hunter and Grant. I attribute my thriving business completely to God, I couldn't have done this on my own. My family & friends are my source of encouragement. I have a slightly unhealthy addiction to coffee, Sweet Tea, and Brookside chocolates. I'm 5'7" but wish I was 2 inches taller (Ben is 6'5"). Summer is my favorite season. I love to shop (except for shoes). I love Sushi and Italian food. I have a background in Graphic Design and Advertising. One day I want to add Interior Design to my expertise. I talk a lot when I get excited, and get quiet when I'm nervous or focused. I'm a down-to-earth southern girl, but I'll flip out if a bee gets near me! :) oh, and I use way too many emoticons and exclamation marks! ;)
