Tokyo Portrait Photographer

Hi! I’m happy to see you here.


Hi, I’m Stephanie.

I’m a Tokyo based portrait & lifestyle photographer with a special connection with Japan since I moved back in 2016 and started to develop my passion for photography and capturing people’s emotions. 

I’m always looking for three elements: light, composition and connection. 

I find inspiration within unique locations, the seasons and the light.

When I’m not behind a camera lens I’m at home with my husband and cat.


Loved Steph’s energy and professionalism. We were a hectic bunch, but she was always calm and scouted out the area for a wonderful place. Will definitely recommend

I needed some updated pictures to support my business, so I asked around for a good photographer in the Tokyo area. I am so glad I heard bout Steph! After scheduling our appointment, she gave me good instructions on what to where, and where to meet for our session.
On the day we met, I was worried since it was raining. However, Steph was prepared for this. She made me feel relaxed and we had a great session.
I was shocked when I saw how great the pictures turned out! She really knows what she is doing!
If you are looking for great portraits, I highly recommend Steph V!

“My husband and I did maternity photoshoot with Stephanie at 35 weeks of pregnancy. Steph is such a lovely and nice person! The photoshoot was so smooth, easy and natural! I thought I would get really tired but I actually felt super energized! She was so patient and attentive! Also really cool, real pro! My husband felt super relaxed which is rare! He usually doesn’t feel comfortable when being caught on camera, but this time he actually enjoyed the whole process. I love the photos! Thank you for the great memories and amazing photos! I am sure baby girl will also love them when I show her ^^”

Steph took family photos for us for a second year in a row and we had a great experience both times. She was so accommodating of our plans and schedule and gave us lots of good ideas on good locations. It isn’t easy taking photos with kids and Steph does a great job with that. Thank you, Steph 🙂
