Capturing a Moment in Time

From "how we met" to walking down the aisle, weddings are filled with powerful, emotional stories—and video is one of the best ways to relive the magic for years to come.

Hey there! I’m Stephanie, a writer, filmmaker, world traveler and overly obsessed dog mom.

I live in Hoboken, New Jersey, by way of Cincinnati, Boston and London, and was lucky enough to find my boyfriend, Frank, and rescue pup, Harry, along the way. (Did I mention I’m a dog mom? Because I am…)

I started down the path of writing and filmmaking as a way to document my travels, but quickly realized I was trading sleep for extra time in the editing room – and loving every minute of it. At that point, I took a leap and combined my passions for filmmaking, journalism and storytelling with my interests in travel, wildlife conservation, human connections and craft beer.

Thus, Stephanie Vermillion Studio was born.

They say when you love what you do, you won’t work a day in your life. While I can’t say that’s entirely true (fixing computer glitches at 2 a.m. still does feel like work…), I cannot imagine doing anything else.

It’s been one heck of a ride, and I’m so thrilled to have you follow along with me!

My promise to you

  • 1. Personal touch

    From first inquiry to final product, you will have an open and direct line of communication to me—no automated responses over here.

  • 2. Timeliness

    If you’re investing in something as exciting as an article or video, I’m not going to make you wait months and months to see the final product. I've grown up with a deadline-focused mentality (thanks, J-school!), which means you'll receive the final product by—or before—its due date. 

  • 3. Emotion

    Speaking of emotion, I wear my heart on my sleeve, so it only makes sense this transfers over into my business. From laughter to tears, I aim to elicit emotion in every piece of content I create.
