I'm Stephanie Ray. 

I guess I should start by telling you a little about myself.  I am a Wedding and Portrait photographer living the DREAM in Dallas, TX!  I am married to the love of my life, Brad Ray. Brad teaches high school art while I photograph weddings and portraits. I also run a photo booth business called The Photo Van (which you should seriously check out- www.thephotovan.net) Brad and I were so blessed to welcome our baby boy Jack into the world in November of 2017. We also have 2 cats, Kitty Cash and Marley, and we live in Dallas, TX.  We love hanging out with our friends and family and enjoy spending time in Northern Michigan with my parents, at their lake-side cabin in the summers.

-Our engagement story was featured recently on D magazine's blog:

Stephanie and Brad's engagement announcement

When I am not working on my photography I am caring for my toddler son.  I am not only a photographer, but a mother, and a wife. My family is very important to me. They inspire me to be the best version of myself, which in turn makes me strive to be the best in my field. I absolutely love what I do for a living and cannot imagine doing anything else. As a photographer, I have grown so much over the course of my career and I still feel like I strive to improve with every wedding and portrait that I photograph. I am so thankful to the countless couples that have trusted me with their wedding memories over the years. I have been a full time wedding photographer for 6 years and counting! Whether it is on your wedding day or creating a family portrait for your mantle, I promise to provide the best possible experience and create a collection of photographs that will be enjoyed for generations to come!
