Meet Stefanie

Her Beginning…

Since disposable cameras as a child, Stefanie has always had a camera in hand orchestrating images amongst family members. A creative entrepreneurial soul, she worried turning photography into a career would be too good to be true. In High School, she began photographing friends and family. Not too long after, was approached by people she did not know with the request to photograph them and their loved ones. Shortly after graduating and beginning to pursue a college degree, she officially began Stefanie Murphy Media while only 18 years old.

Her Experience…

While in college, she continually balanced an internship, a full-time class schedule and her growing photography business. Stefanie earned a degree in the field of Marketing and Communications at Ramapo College of New Jersey including her work in the school’s Marketing department assisting in social media campaigns and creating campus photography. Her college elective schedule included higher level photography classes and a written notice to bypass required lower level classes. After graduation, Stefanie was offered a position at a Marketing firm in Bergen County, New Jersey only to resign a few short months later to commit solely to her business, Stefanie Murphy Media.

Stefanie holds 9 years of experience in the portrait and event photography industry while still bearing a fresh eye on capturing her clients to offer a refreshing experience. She continues to photograph over 200 families and couples a year in Rockland County, New York and surrounding areas in the Hudson Valley and Bergen County while ensuring the experience is individual to each one of her clients.

Her Process…

Stefanie’s approach to portraits is to guide her subjects to display organic interaction with each other instead of posing stiff, repetitive images for each session. Everyone has a legacy, everyone has moments they wish they could relive. Stefanie’s Images freeze these moments into portrait form, relived for generations.

What Our Clients Say!

Tina Says

"From the moment I first met with Stefanie I knew she would be the perfect photographer for our wedding. She had photographed a friend's wedding and after seeing those pictures and reviewing her work and reading her reviews I knew I wanted to hire her. Thankfully she was available or I would have begged her to arrange her schedule to be available. There were so many pictures that I didn't even know she was taking. These candid shots were my absolute favorites. She was never intrusive or overbearing and she blended in to the scene perfectly and the most incredible pictures and moments were captured. Stefanie is a warm and friendly person but beyond professional as well. You will not be sorry!"

"Stefanie was the photographer at my daughter‘s wedding. She went above and beyond to ensure we had every possible picture to capture the entire day. Not only did she take pictures she even helped all of the guys get dressed making sure their ties were done properly! Both her and her assistant paid attention to every last detail. Every time I was taking a photo of something with my phone she was right there taking it with her camera to make sure I had a high quality picture. She made it a point to keep asking me if there was any more pictures that I wanted her to capture even at the end as she was walking out she doubled checked to see if we wanted anymore shots. All throughout the night when I asked her to take a picture of me and someone or some thing she more than happily did it with a smile every time. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Stefanie!"

"LOVE Stefanie, so easy to work with but remains professional. I personally am camera shy but the way she works she makes me feel so comfortable and you’d never guess I’m nervous from pictures, grateful to have found her."
