About Stephen

Welcome to Stephen Wenzel Photography, where I dare to explore beyond the limitations of my camera. I am driven by a passion for transforming moments into timeless art, capturing emotions that go beyond what my lens can visualize. Specializing in portrait and event photography, I aspire to uncover unique stories, authentically reflecting the essence of every subject and event. I don't just capture moments; I turn them into cherished memories.

 

Join me on a visual journey that dares to delve beyond the confines of pixels.

Photographic Philosophy

Visionary Storytelling

Unleashing the power of visual narratives, I craft stories that transcend pixels, capturing the essence of every moment.

Client-Centered Focus

Your vision is my priority. I am dedicated to understanding your unique story and translating it into breathtaking visual art. In addition, I make the process of scheduling, shaping, and attending your photoshoot as client-friendly as possible.

Creative Exploration

I believe in pushing creative boundaries, exploring new perspectives, and infusing every image with artistic expression. After all, the sky is the limit.

Community of Creativity

Photography is a collaborative art. I engage with a community of creatives, sharing insights and inspiration to continually elevate other photographer's craft in addition to my own.

Community Development

I have volunteered as a photographer for multiple organizations across North Carolina including the Folkmoot International Dance Festival, Tuscola High School Band Program, and the Boy Scouts of America.

 

In addition, 10 percent of my profit from nature photography sales directly benefit the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation. This contributes to upkeep of the trails and overlooks along the Blue Ridge. I am also a member of the Waterfall Keepers of North Carolina.
