I AM A BAY AREA WRITER, photographer, and content creator living in East Oakland with my husband, our son, and our brood of adopted beasts. I have owned and operated Stephanie Kaloi Photography since 2008 (OMG) and have been writing and publishing online since 2010 (y’all). Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, I have lived all over the US: Alabama, Tennessee, Oregon, California. I like to road trip, read books, and see as many movies as humanly possible without neglecting my entire life.
MY PHOTOGRAPHY WORK has been published in a ton of (print and digital) publications, including Portland Bride and Groom, Offbeat Bride, A Practical Wedding, The Knot, Equality 4 Weddings, Rock n Roll Bride, When Geeks Wed, Love and Lavender, Savannah Weddings Magazine, Unique Bride Magazine, South Sound Wedding & Event Magazine, and Style Me Pretty.
AS A FREELANCE WRITER, I’ve had a lot of fun working with a whole bunch of sites on different projects, including BuzzFeed Parents, A Practical Wedding, and Offbeat Mama & Bride. I also regularly write pieces for various online publications, and currently regularly contribute to GrokNation and Pet360. I am always open to working with new publishers and editors, and love working on teams and working remotely from home. Whatever works for you works for me!
THIS WEBSITE originally began as a home for my photography work, but in 2017 I decided to combine my skill sets into one streamlined site. Hopefully… it’ll get there.
